DECADE OF DESTINY WITH RICK WARREN »

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. (2 Timothy 4:3-4) Discerning By Niceness By carrying posts like Desiring God Selling Bible Study […]

REDEFINING THE CHURCH: THE CHURCH GROWTH MOVEMENT'S UNBIBLICAL DEFINITION OF THE CHURCH »

The following Critical Issues Commentary by Bob DeWaay, pastor of Twin City Fellowship, is republished at Apprising Ministries with permission:    “He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything” (Colossians 1:18) Several months […]

RICHARD ABANES WITH MORE ON PHIL JOHNSON'S "SEXIST, NARROW-MINDED, AND UNBIBLICAL" ARTICLE »

From Christian Research Net: As you can see in the CRN post Richard Abanes on Phil Johnson’s “Deep-seated Pathology” Revealed In His Recent “Sexist Hit Piece” Richard Abanes, a long-time member of the Saddleback Church of Rick Warren, has some quite uncomplimentary things to say about Phil Johnson, who is known to many in the blogosphere through […]

RICHARD ABANES: ALL, OR MOST, ONLINE DISCERNMENT MINISTRIES IN SERIOUS SINFUL MINDSET »

Evangelical apologist Richard Abanes, whose pastor for years is the PDL Pope Rick Warren, has clarified his position a bit more concerning so-called “Online Discernment Ministries”: I do think that if all of these ODMs are indeed saved/regenerate, then I don’t think it would be too far off base to say that all of them, or […]

RICHARD ABANES NOT CONVINCED SOME ONLINE DISCERNMENT MINISTRIES ARE CHRISTIANS »

Some very illuminating comments from February 2009 by Richard Abanes are reprinted below. We note further that Abanes has also said, “The Body of Christ is finally beginning to pull the mask away from these ODMs to reveal their true nature,…” (Online source) Well now, as one Jesus has sent as a pastor-teacher, I’d say that […]

IS THERE A "CULT OF ONLINE DISCERNMENT MINISTRIES"? »

From the Christian Research Net: Richard Abanes thinks so. In his article Don’t Believe Everything You Read…On the Internet the apologist for Rick Warren writes: It’s almost beyond belief that individuals supposedly indwelt by the Holy Spirit could be partakers of such activity. But the facts show that a significant number of “Christian” blogs & websites have […]

MAN-CENTERED GOSPEL VS. GOD-CENTERED GOSPEL »

A man-centered gospel is the belief that the determining factor in whether or not a man is eternally saved, in the end, relies (at some level) upon an act of his own will i.e. human decision. This is often called synergism because it is thought to be a cooperative effort between God and man. While […]

RICK WARREN ON HANNITY AND COLMES: HE ALMOST GOT IT! »

Apprising Ministries is in agreement with pastor John Chisham and let me also point out that while close may count in horseshoes, when it comes to someone’s eternal destiny, it still misses by an eternity. How tragic that the Body of Christ continues being so misrepresented by such a semi-pelagian self-seeking lover of the self as Rick Warren. I echo […]

RICHARD ABANES: A TRUTH PROBLEM INDEED »

It doesn’t bring any pleasure to have to draw attention to this issue but unfortunately it does dovetail with my own dealings with Richard Abanes, an apologist for Rick Warren and a member of Warren’s Saddleback Church (SBC). Most readers of Apprising Ministries know that a still unsubstantiated charge by Abanes alleging libel in my three year old A Pastor’s Assessment of […]
