(Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      Why I Am Not a "Purpose Driven" Pastor
      with guest Pastor Larry DeBruyn
      (Crosstalk America)

      Friday, September 19, 2008

      From Crosstalkamerica.com:

      "Purpose Driven" author Rick Warren has disseminated teachings that need to come under biblical scrutiny. As pastors are placed in a position of serious responsibility, it is critical that they protect their flocks by evaluating Warren's teachings in light of God's Word.

      This Crosstalk featured just such a pastor. His name is Larry DeBruyn and he's the Senior Pastor of Franklin Road Baptist Church of Indianapolis, Indiana. He's also the author of the book, Church on the Rise: Why I Am Not a "Purpose-Driven" Pastor.

      Pastor DeBruyn sensed the urgency for the book in November 2006 when he was teaching in Hungary and suffered a massive coronary. After getting back to the U.S. he decided to make it a priority to examine this subject and tell his congregation why he doesn't identify with the "purpose-driven" philosophy of local church ministry.

      On this program you will hear discussion about ministry becoming industry, how human knowledge is in conflict with God's Word, the doctrinal vacuum of evangelicalism that's pointing back to medieval mysticism, and more.

      This is a video I did for my job with Crosstalk America. You can find more clips at Crosstalk's Official Youtube Channel.

      Lane, once again this has nothing to do with this post. I have a question that nobody seems to be able to answer for me. I know the Bible says the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, but after a person is saved, does the Holy Spirit still convict that person of sin? I'm being told that after a person is saved, the Holy Spirit convicts a person of righteousness and not sin? I have been searching Scripture for an answer and can't find it.

      Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
      (Joh 16:7-11)

      How do you even know what righteousness is if you don't know what sin is, though? If we confess our sins, he's faithful and just to forgive us our sins. He is our righteousness. To say that a person can be convicted of righteousness and not sin is like saying that someone can be convicted of knowledge and not know what the polar opposite of it is. It's absurd.
