What is this?

14 Mar


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?

    It would appear that Michael Horton has been on a slippery slope toward apostacy for some time and has just now arrived at the Big Top.

    Others will follow – we will watch and hopefully not be too surprised for they did not arrive at their destination quickly, but – here a little, there a little…

    Who’s bust is that? Calvin’s? Anyway, was just wondering if Warren switches out the busts accordingly?

      Excellent observation, Traveler. I also wonder if he switches out busts in order to pretend to be sound. Would he insert a bust of Arminius in order to sidle up to Arminians… and so forth. Good point. You usually hit a fresh angle with your observations. I hadn’t thought about that way. Thanks!

    I’m with you on your thoughts here. But you better make sure that Chris Rosebrough doesn’t see this post, or he’ll get out his pirate guns and broadside you, just like he did to Ingrid Schlueter…

    Sorry Truthinator, I hope you didn’t think I meant we should cower and hide when we are threatened for standing for the truth or for challenging the status quo. I was being sarcastic… guess it didn’t come out as I intended.

    It’s a sad, sad day in the church when a believer cannot Biblically call into question the controversial actions of another, without being subjected to groundless excoriation.

      Not at all. I agree with you. I was just trying to add the pirate motif to my response. Sure, the way fellow soldiers excoriate each other is appalling. I lost a great deal of respect for Rosebrough and other for what they did to Ingrid. No one is above correction! We have the right and the duty to ask questions when things do not look right. Carry on. Thanks for commenting.
