Rick Warren's upcoming Radicalis Conference will feature Pete Scazzero. In case you're not familiar with Pete Scazzero, he could easily be described as Protestant/Roman Catholic Mystic. He spends one week per year in a Trappist Monastery practicing Monkery and he's recently re-packaged the Roman Catholic Mysticism that he's been learning in order to make it more marketable to Purpose-Driven / Seeker-Driven Churches.
I recently reviewed some of Pete Scazzero's work on my radio program including his repackaging of Roman Catholic Mystic, Brother Lawrence's Practice of the Presence of God. These Roman Catholic practices contradict the clear teaching of the word of God and are incompatible with Biblical Christianity. I'd like Rick Warren and Saddleback church to answer some basic questions:
• Why on earth are is Rick Warren allowing these Roman Catholic Mystical Monastic practices to be taught to other pastors at the upcoming Radicalis Conference?
• Does Warren even remotely care about sound Biblical doctrine or has he become so pragmatic in his thinking that he's abandoned any pretense of teaching & defending the truth?
• Isn't Warren supposed to be a Protestant Southern Baptist Pastor?
• Does the Southern Baptist Convention have a formal process for bringing a pastor up on charges of false doctrine? (it may be time to file them because Rick Warren's promotion of Roman Catholic Monastic Mysticism contracts the established doctrines of the SBC and has no business being taught at any church, especially one officially affiliated with the SBC.)
