Rick Warren “interested in helping all houses of worship, not in converting Jews”

Link to Jewish Journal article about Rick Warren’s speech at Sinai Temple’s Friday Night Live Shabbath in June 2006

The other secret to his success is his passion for God and Jesus. Warren managed to speak for the entire evening without once mentioning Jesus — a testament to his savvy message-tailoring. But make no mistake, the driving purpose of an evangelical church is to evangelize, and it is Warren’s devotion to spreading the words of the Christian Bible that drive his ministry.

Good for him and his flock — and not so bad for us either. His teachings apply to 95 percent of all people, regardless of religious belief. As he put it to a group of rabbis at a conference last year — using a metaphor that might be described as a Paulian slip: “Eat the fish and throw away the bones.”

Mr. Warren, in the case of the rabbis, is the bones they will spit out be the fulfillment of prophecy in the birth, live, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ?

Warren told Wolfson his interest is in helping all houses of worship, not in converting Jews. He said there are more than enough Christian souls to deal with for starters.

Mr. Warren, does this mean you will help Mormons, Roman Catholics, Seventh Day Adventists, Christian Scientists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, wiccans and even muslims – all false religions – because after all they are “houses of worship?”
