Greg Laurie's Harvest America: Royal Route To Heaven, Rick Warren & The Message

  As saddening as it may come to some, we are strongly encouraging our audience of readers to not partake or invite your friends to Greg Laurie's "Harvest America". I have no problem acknowledging that I've heard him preach an unwatered Gospel message (dealing with sin, repentance, Christ crucified buried and rising again and His return.). This might have many of you wondering then: Why discourage the participation? What may come as a surprise to some readers is the fact that Greg Laurie is planning on speaking at a conference with these guys:

From left to right (Row 1): Rick Warren, Greg Laurie, Lecrae, Nick Vujicic
                    (Row 2) Miles McPherson, James Macdonald, Craig Groeschel and Mark Driscoll

  A man like Greg Laurie who is well known (Harvest America boasts it will reach 5 million people)  is encouraging many people to tune in to hear the Gospel for "Harvest America" and will then in a month and a half  introduce some possible new believers and many of his already followers to the likes of these men to help them with spiritual growth:

Rick Warren: For extensive information on our concerns with Rick Warren please visit these sites:

Lecrae - Many Christians enjoy his Christian rap but unfortunately he has found himself taking part in some very dangerous practices :

Miles McPherson

James Macdonald -

Craig Groeschel -

Mark Driscoll -

I don't know about you but anybody who seriously reads through any of these links will see the errors of these individuals. I strongly encourage you to pray for them and those they are leading that they will repent and not lead these people astray. Pray that Greg Laurie will turn from these things. As of this point and time I cannot encourage people- no matter saved or unsaved- to take part in an event with someone willing to compromise and lead God's precious sheep to a pack of wolves.

Here are a few other concerns I had about Greg Laurie's mens study group:

Found in the Harvest Men's study "The Royal Route to Heaven"
in "Studies in 1 Corinthians and Ephesians
Ephesians 2"

There is a quote and a recommendation for Rick Warren's book "The Purpose Driven Life" found on this PDF, here's the recommendation:


As with every single one of these studies found on the Harvest website, they list "The Message" as being a "thought-for-thought" translation.

 There are a number of errors found within the pages of "The Message" with heavy new age overtones and yet so many seminaries present it as a legitimate "thought for thought" translation. This is what Eugene Peterson said about "The Message" from a Christianity Today quote from October 10, 2009
 "When I'm in a congregation where somebody uses [The Message] in the Scripture reading, it makes me a little uneasy. I would never recommend it be used as saying, "Hear the Word of God from The Message." But it surprises me how many do."

I've heard Greg Laurie quote from "The Message" even though I personally heard him only state that he was reading from a "modern translation". This is still very dangerous, understand the issues with "The Message":

We will chime in on the concerns with the Resurgence on a podcast prior to the event. Once again I strongly encourage you the reader to please be discerning and consider the side-effects / dangers of encouraging people to take part in "Harvest America" unfortunately in light of where Greg Laurie is headed.

It's very important that you clearly understand that the inclusion of any guest interviewed on SAID radio or any link from anywhere within or web site does not necessarily imply our endorsement of that ministry, resource, or organization featured regarding anything that it does or teaches. The only endorsement that is worthwhile is that which is in alignment with biblical truth. It's our position that we can agree or disagree with you, you can agree or disagree with us, but only so far as it agrees or disagrees with God's Word.
Whilst recognizing the good fruit from linked sites or special guests, we cannot vouch for their every belief. As with all things in this world, the onus is upon you to check out each site and to exercise spiritual discretion, testing everything (even us) against the Word of God (1 Thes. 5:21)

Keeping Our First Love First

“To the angel of the church of Ephesus write,
‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”’
- Revelation 2:1-7

I praise the Lord for this passage for so many reasons. One of the obvious ones is that one can get so caught up in the ministry that as our dear brother Jake (who is now with the Lord) used to say "Don't get so caught up in the work of the Lord that you forget the Lord of the work"
 The church of Ephesus was commended by the Lord for many things (v.2,3,6) yet they had left Jesus out of the picture (v.4). I wonder how many times well intentioned brothers and sister in Christ will get so caught up with the work of the Lord that they not realizing replace the work of the Lord in place of the Lord Himself.     
 Unfortunately many people have read this passage out of its context and mistakenly assumed that it was the items listed in v.3-4 that had caused them to leave their first love (Jesus), but in its context this is not the case. All of these things listed are good but Jesus has to be at the center of all of it, if not we can start losing site of the Lord. As I mentioned earlier I love this passage because it helps me understand the dangers of getting caught up in any of the things listed and leaving Jesus out. 
  If you are reading this and this applies to you I encourage you in the Lord Jesus to repent as He outlines in v.4. I pray that we not fall into this and lets keep Jesus at the center of all we do. Let us do as the Holy Spirit speaks through Paul to the church of Colossae in one of my favorite passages:

"And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." - Colossians 3:17

May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be blessed and glorified by all of our  lives/ ministries unto Him.

Thus Saith The Rick: Foot In Mouth & Bad Company

Editors Note:
Due to the frequency of undivine revelations coming from the lips of the notsomighty Rick Warren and the way that people are accepting his words as authority; we here at SAID Radio have decided to make this an ongoing segment that will now be known as “Thus Saith the Rick.”

There seems to never be a dull moment for Rick Warren nowadays between his Twitter and website. For those familiar with Rick it will not come as a surprise that he would share such a post:
Rick links his Tweet audience over to this website:

Hear His Voice and Live!

Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.
John 5:25

I just love hearing these words from our precious Lord.  Our mortal bodies were once condemned to hell, destined to death.  We were dead to our sins, never being able to come before a Holy God who is a life giving being. Sin cannot enter into the presence of God,  but God tells us to hear His voice, to hear the voice of His Son so that we may have this life he wants to give.  That comes as we read God's Word and meditate on it every day.  If we hear His voice and repent, He will forgive us our sins; he will give us life, and life abundantly.  Not only does God make our spirit alive, but he has also promised us new bodies, a new Resurrection where we will be alive with Him for all eternity.  Such glorious things await those who trust in the Son, who hear His voice, and who hope for such things!
