Archived Interview on VCY America Crosstalk:

Redefining Christianity: Understanding the Purpose Driven Movement
by Rev. Bob DeWaay Pastor of Twin City Fellowship in Minneapolis, Minnesota
Rick Warren's "Purpose Driven" philosophy was examined from several angles.

A local church often takes on the Purpose Driven mold after a pastor expresses his "vision" (not God's vision) for the church, gains the support of leaders in the church, and finally announces it to the congregation, with the expectation that all will embrace the "vision". Those who do not agree with the changes, are characterized as opposing God's vision, and asked to leave.

In a way each church becomes a franchise, (like McDonalds), where standardized methods, preaching, etc. are introduced, and only those who agree can stay. But, like McDonalds, the menu is pared down to a few attractive messages, while hard biblical truths are ignored.

Who's Driving the Purpose Driven Church?
Host: Vic Eliason Guest: James Sundquist.
James Sundquist is the author of the book "Who's Driving the Purpose Driven Church?" Some people are feeling disenfranchised from their churches because of dramatic changes taking place in the name of relevance. One of the most popular thrusts in the current relevance movement is the model set forth by the book "The Purpose Driven Church" by Rick Warren. Jim mentions examples from his book of people that have been driven out of their church for questioning this phenomenon. Listeners also respond with testimonies of similar experiences.
