Quote of the Day

HAT TIP: Slice of Laodicea

“God has not called me to be original; He only calls me to be effective.”

–Rick Warren, Saddleback Sayings, Pastors.com

My response: No, Rick. We’re called to be faithful. The effectiveness is solely the responsibility of the Holy Spirit as we preach and teach the Gospel. When man tries to be the effective using unscriptural strategies, it causes man’s confidence to rest in flesh. The great evangelical disaster can be directly laid at the feet of men like Rick Warren, who for self-serving reasons, invent clever sayings that have absolutely no basis in Scripture.
