A Renunciation and an Affirmation

For some odd reason, I've been wanting to do this, although I've never really been a follower of his -- I speak of Rick Warren. I renounce him, I draw the line in the sand (even though I've written numerous articles about his devious practices and escapades) and I reaffirm my stand with the five Solas. Faith alone, Christ alone, Scripture alone, Grace alone and God's glory alone.

That's my life. Period. I've had enough. There, is that unambiguous enough? Do I need to define the word "is"?

I'm tired of watered down preaching, where funny stories are told followed by a reference to a verse in the bible. Or taking a whole chapter and blowing over it in 30 minutes. It's time to repent and preach the entire counsel of God without apology. God gave us the tools and the brains to delve into the depths of the Word and it is to our shame that we don't do it.

Now, let me additionally recommend to you (as a repeat post) this sermon by Paul Washer, who has gotten it right.

If this convicts you, good. If it angers you, good. If you disagree with it, let me recommend that you examine yourself to see if you are in the faith.

What do you really think?

I agree with you...have you read Lawson's "Famine in the Land" or listened to his "Bring the Book" sermon from Shepherd's Conf?

great stuff.
