Much talk is going around about this photo of Michael Horton and Rick Warren. I don’t know that much about Horton but I know a great deal about Warren. Horton is apparently a reformed guy with many fans on the net. Why is he looking so chummy with Warren?
Some say that this is merely a photo and people should not get so alarmed. I say, hogwash! Pictures cast thousands of messages and none of them terribly positive about this photograph.
This photo gives the impression that these two guys are either best buds or at least good ol’ boys who just disagree about minor stuff but are still mostly on the same page. If Horton is Biblical, could he be on the same page as Warren?
Civility is always good but how chummy can people who are on different sides of Theology be? Why wasn’t Piper also in the photo? He says that Warren is “doctrinal and sound”.
Is Warren making the rounds trying to look credible? It seems to me that this could be the case. Looking the part is almost as good as being the part in our post-modern, ADHD age. What do you guys think?
