BOB DeWAAY: "REDEFINING CHRISTIANITY: Understanding the Purpose Driven Movement "

MP3 Available Here

BOB DeWAAY, pastor of Twin City Fellowship in St. Louis Park, MN and administrator of Critical Issues Commentary will discuss the theme of his controversial and timely book: REDEFINING CHRISTIANITY: Understanding the Purpose Driven Movement .

Bob DeWaay has received many e-mails over the last two years from people concerned about what has happened to their churches since they became Purpose Driven. This book will explain what has happened, why it has happened, and how a Purpose Driven church is different from a Bible-centered, Gospel church.

Excerpt from Redefining Christianity:

"Jesus said, 'If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you' (John 15:19). Not even the greatest marketing genius can change this without redefining the church. Seeking the approval of the world is precisely what the Purpose Driven movement is all about."

During this interview, we will also discuss Rick Warren's P.E.A.C.E. Coalition and how, according to Pastor DeWaay, there is nothing distinctively Christian about it. As Pastor DeWaay puts it, "The claim that the church can have a second reformation using processes that do not even need Christians as leaders is very alarming."
