Tuesday, November 28, a coalition of pro-family/pro-life leaders issued a
press release in response to Pastor Rick Warren's decision to have U.S.
Senator Barack Obama speak at the Global Summit on AIDS being hosted in Warren's
Saddleback Church. The very language of
that document is a witness against those Protestants who have signed it.
Certainly, Obama is pro-abortion; and of course, Warren, who is
pro-Warren, deserves condemnation for adding this despicable action to his
other despicable actions too numerous to mention in this short statement.
No doubt, Warren treads underfoot the
blood of the innocent preborn by promoting Obama and fellowshipping with
him. He also mocks the Sixth Commandment.
the Protestant signers of the press release just mentioned and included
below tread underfoot the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and mock the
first, second, and third commandments along with the ninth and possibly
the tenth in some cases. In shades of the infamous Evangelicals and
Catholics Together, the signers announce "we join with one
voice" in their defense of God's Word. And together "with one
voice," the Catholic and Protestant signers, apparently evangelicals
all, stress "the evangelical church" must be
"firmly rooted in the Word of God."
pope must be happy to see yet another vindication of the "separated
brethren" strategy of Vatican II.
signers of what can justly be called ECT Light include Catholic
representatives of blatantly Roman Catholic organizations which openly and
aggressively promote all manner of Romish idolatry and blasphemy. Included
in that category are Judie Brown, Joe Scheidler, and Peggy Hamill. Phyllis
Schlafly is just as Catholic but not as open about it. Among the many
Protestant signers, there are those who openly define the pope and his
religion as Christian, and then there are the much more subtle who include
Roman Catholics in their ministry work but encourage those individuals to
be low-key about their "doctrinal distinctives." And then there
is VCY America, once flamingly ecumenical but now much more hypocritical.
One can, at rare times, even hear a testimony from a former Catholic on
VCY. Usually, that takes place after an open Catholic has been on,
masquerading as a Christian; and thus there is a need to placate another
segment of the VCY base.
people are not ignorant of what they are doing. I have personally
confronted a number of them, and others have been given my book More
Than These which deals in-depth with the sin and folly of
promoting the Roman Catholic Church through ecumenical ministry
one who has also "stood uncompromisingly" against abortion, in
fact, since the 1970s, I want to state "in the strongest possible
terms" that I oppose the "violation of God's clear command"
in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 and elsewhere which has been committed by the
Protestant signers of the statement below. I oppose their justifying of a
religion which holds millions in spiritual bondage and darkness while
mocking Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1
Corinthians 2:2). I challenge them to repent of their ongoing
betrayal of the blood and righteousness of Christ. I challenge them to
repent from desensitizing the world, the Roman Catholic people, and the
body of Christ to the abominable, damnable errors of Romanism. As they
have stood against abortion, I challenge them to stand as openly and
uncompromisingly for the faith of the gospel (Philippians
1:27) against the greatest
enemy of that faith the world has ever seen, the pope and his religion.
And I challenge all followers of Jesus Christ to tell the signers of ECT
Light, "You cannot fight one evil while justifying another"

Wisconsin, Nov. 28 /Christian
Newswire/ -- As those who have worked to defend preborn
children from the horrors of abortion in America and who have stood
uncompromisingly against the legalized slaughter of an estimated 50
million Americans in the womb since 1973, we join with one voice in
expressing our indignation and opposition to Rick Warren's welcoming of
Senator Barack Obama to his church on December 1, 2006. Rick Warren is
bringing Senator Obama to his church to speak for his Global Summit on
AIDS and the church and to take an AIDS test in front of the cameras at a
noon press conference.
Obama comes to Rick Warren's church believing that abortion should be
kept, "safe and legal". When Barack Obama campaigned for the
U.S. Senate in 2004, his wife wrote a fundraising letter
for him that revealed his support of partial-birth abortion. She said
Obama's position is that the "partial-birth abortion ban . . . is
clearly unconstitutional and must be overturned." Support of
partial-birth abortion goes a lot farther than the politicians who want
abortion to be "safe and legal." Senator Obama actually supports
the barbaric practice of allowing abortionists to kill babies by allowing
them to be partially, born, their skulls punctured and their brains sucked
out. Further, he repeatedly opposed an anti-infanticide
bill in the state of Illinois that only passed after he left.
Killing a child at any stage of life is a violation of God's clear
command, "Thou Shall Do No Murder". In addition,Obama's solution
to the growing AIDS crisis has been and continues to be the widespread
distribution of condoms, not chaste behavior as directed by the Bible.
the strongest possible terms, we oppose Rick Warren's decision to ignore
Senator Obama's clear pro-death stance and invite him to Saddleback Church
anyway. If Senator Obama cannot defend the most helpless citizens in our
country, he has nothing to say to the AIDS crisis. You cannot
fight one evil while justifying another. The evangelical church can
provide no genuine help for those who suffer from AIDS if those involved
do not first have their ethic of life firmly rooted in the Word of God.
Accordingly, we call on Pastor Rick Warren to rescind his invitation to
Senator Obama immediately. The millions of silent victims who have died
because of the policies of leaders like Senator Obama demand a response
from those who believe that life is a gift from God. The name of the
seminar at which Senator Obama will be appearing is entitled, " We
Must Work Together." No, Mr. Warren, Mr. Obama, we will
never work with those can support the murder of babies in the womb.
