On saturday, Barack Obama and John McCain will meet with pastor Rick Warren to discuss their beliefs:
â€œRick Warren is really the anti-Jerry Falwell,â€ said Alan Wolfe, director of the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life at Boston College.
Wolfe told FOXNews.com that Warren has the ability to broaden the evangelical agenda, but he said Warrenâ€™s clout stems from a â€œmovement on the ground.â€
â€œHeâ€™s giving them a voice, and itâ€™s very important,â€ he said. â€œI think heâ€™s a major figure, definitely Americaâ€™s next Billy Graham.â€
Warren, author of the best-selling book â€œThe Purpose-Driven Life,â€ has with his wife, Kay, been a leading advocate for HIV/AIDS victims worldwide.
If you read “The Purpose Driven Life”, what you will find is Warren’s belief that God’s plan controls everything. Thus, human beings have no free will:
- Proving that God’s Plan is impossible (video version)
- Undersanding God’s Plan (text version)
Anyone who thinks about Warren’s beliefs for more than 30 seconds can see that they are ridiculous. And anyone who thinks about God for more than an hour or two can see that God is imaginary. Yet we live in a society immersed in religion.
One day we will look back at this period of time in Human history with deep embarrassment. We live in a time when our leaders meet to publicly discuss their delusions.
