Thanks for the Material, Rick Warren

A recent Warren tweet: “God WONT ask “Were u a Calvinist?Arminian?Pentecostal?Catholic?Orthodox?Evangelical? He’ll ask “What’d you do with Jesus?”

Rick’s tweets have a way of making me go “Wait a minute!” (That’s why I don’t follow him on Twitter.)

In this case, not only is Rick dismissing some serious theological differences, but he’s giving a false impression of Judgment Day. Check Jesus’ Judgment parables out. The Judge doesn’t ask mankind anything, he tells them. Probably because he knows every worthless word (Mat 12:36), every hair on your head (Mat 10:30), and what is done for the least of his brethren (Mat  25:40), to mention a few things.

But then, that sounds like a very *sovereign* God, which adjective is not entirely popular in the SBC.

    1. Jud 1:24-25 NET. Now to the one who is able to keep you from falling, and to cause you to stand, rejoicing, without blemish before his glorious presence, (25) to the only God our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority, before all time, and now, and for all eternity. Amen.

      Good one.
