    So what are your thoughts regarding this interview??

    • Alan Higgins says:

      I have listened to parts of the interview. So far I like the spirit in which the interview is done but have to listen to it all properly before I really give a comment

  2. ChurchSalt says:

    Myself, I couldn’t get through the whole thing. Warren kept giving all the proper orthodox answers you would hope a pastor would give, and that is what drove me crazy! He seems to give whatever answers his particular audience wants to hear! I see why Piper thinks he is legit, but he comes across as naive in not understanding Warren has publicly taught completely different views countless times. I think the whole thing is tragic.

  3. Denise Smith says:

    I hope I’m not being mean-spirited, but does it not seem naive to say, the reason he neglected to give a clearer gospel presentation in his book, was because he didn’t think non-christians would be reading it? And therefore, if that’s true, then why did he then at some point (in the book), offer a prayer for receiving Jesus, if his understanding was that only Christians would be reading it?

  4. Gregory says:

    This was an interesting interview. I believe Rick Warren does know the right answers to give. His actions and preaching do not agree with many of the statements he makes here. Whether he is sincere or no I leave that in the hands of God, I am not his Judge. John Piper does appear to be taken by Warren for whatever reason and I believe he is trying to create an uneccessary association that may prove to be a bad witness. It is far better to be clear in your Gospel preaching and witness, both in what you say what you do.
