Who Is Driving The Purpose Driven Church? (MP3)
A CRC REPORT
Do you need 40 days of isolation? Do you need to sign a "covenant"? Do you need to get a course in marketing? Only to be a "good Christian"? The Church Growth Movement, spearheaded by the Willow Creek organization claims "yes".

The writer of the book "Who Is Driving the Purpose Driven Church" has done some really thorough research. He's observing the "House Of Evangelical Christianity" for decades and knows what he's dealing with. After all, he's an evangelical Christian himself, too. And that makes him not only knowledgeable, but also engaged.

Because there is something going on in the evangelical churches. It's called the "Church Growth Movement" (CGM) and James Sundquist doesn't like it... Because it has nothing to do with the true message of Yesus Kristos and the Bible.

What are we talking about? There's a book called "The Purpose Driven church", by a writer called Rick Warren. This book serves as the Bible for the "Church Growth Movement". All over the world, people are reading Rick Warren's book and signing the "covenant" that is printed in the beginning of it.

"Covenant"? Yes, just like a lot of things in the Church Growth Movement, everything is based on marketing technologies. A "covenant" is a "Christian sounding word" for a contract. When you sign the "covenant" in Rick Warren's book, you basically sign yourself into the "new way of thinking" that is driving the "Purpose Driven Church".

Rick Warren, of course, is himself a "pastor" too. He makes people sign "covenants" in his "church" too, and these "covenants" go quite far. Of course, Yesus never said to sign yourself away in some contract/"covenant". But in order to be part of a CGM-"church", you'll need to.

What you sign is, that you put yourself under the "authority" of the so-called "pastors". The leaders of the CGM-churches will tell you that you have to obey the pastor for he knows best. And when you disagree, when you have question marks, then you are being policed and excommunicated for "being rebellious against god's appointed leaders".

In an in-depth interview with Dr. Stanley Montheigh from Radio Liberty, you can listen to some serious information about the Church Growth Movement. When you really love Yesus Kristos, you better beware for this "new movement".
