Look, I read Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. It was not my very favorite book ever, and I don’t think it’s necessary the “Christian Manifesto” that the back cover says it is, but I will allow that it has brought many people and churches closer to God. That’s all well and good.
But now I’m disturbed because I found out about The Purpose Driven Life Takers, a “Christian” (quotes intentional) video game that puts kids on the streets of New York City seeking out “infidels” (Catholics, Buddhists, homosexuals, mainstream Christians, et al) to force to conversion. If they don’t convert, it’s all right to kill them. You don’t believe me–I know you don’t because I didn’t believe it either.
You can either google it or read more here.
Um…I’m sorry. When did we time travel back like hundreds of years? Or like Jason said: “Isn’t that kind of like Hitler?”
To say the least, I’m disturbed…and with every article I read, I’m more disturbed.
And what’s even more disturbing? Rick Warren is among the most influential evangelicals of our time. His “following” is huge. What will this mean?
Thoughts? Am I missing something?
