    One thought on “Deceived on Purpose: The New Age Implications of the Purpose-Driven Church”

    1. “These were more noble…, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”(Acts 17:11) Some say Christianity must change to survive. Is that a good thing? How subtle is it? What does that change look like? Where did it come from? Who is promoting it? Should we be worried? Can we guard against any harmful change? This book deals with the subtle start of that change. Smith uses Biblical discernment to guide you throug [...]

    2. Warren Smith had been a New-Ager who thought he knew Jesus Christ before becoming a Christian and leaving the New Age. The New Age borrows heavily from Christian words but with whole different meanings and interpretations. Now as a Christian, he brings that experience and sensitivity to demonstrate the un-nerving similarities with the New Age, Robert Schuller and Rick Warren. I was disturbed.I was aware of the influence of Peter Drucker and others on Rick Warren - the canvassing of the neighborh [...]

    3. Well written, thought through, and honest. The tone of the book was one of honest discovery on the part of the author. Coming out of the New Age movement himself, he was thoroughly equipped to discern the subtleties of the deception in Rick Warren's (and others) teaching. I appreciated the gentle tone he took in writing this. There was no mistaking what his point was, but it was clear he did not write the book simply to bash Rick Warren. I felt that Smith was honestly grieved at the deception of [...]

    4. This book clearly details Rick Warren's connections to and history with "new age spirituality" and is packed full of warning to the true Believer in our Lord Jesus Christ. We are warned in scripture about deception in the last days, and we are warned that not everyone who says "lord didn't I do all these things in your name?" Know the living Lord Jesus of the Bible. If you are at all concerned about the apostate church that Revelation warns about, you should read this book, and share it with you [...]

    5. Clear exposition of the false teachings of the Purpose Driven movement. Warren B. Smith was immersed in New Age doctrine so has a strong foundation to compare them with Biblical truths. He connects the dots from Robert Schuller to Rick Warren and Bruce Wilkinson and clarifies the signs indicating that they are teaching false doctrine. He issues a strong warning to those who desire to follow the true Christ of the Bible to be discerning and aware that there will be false prophets.

    6. Excellent, well researched, and documented information on Rick Warren and the Message Bible's new age leanings. I've never personally been a Rick Warren or Message Bible fan and have stayed away, but this information was extremely eye opening.
