CNN's headline "Pastor Snags Obama, McCain for Joint Appearance" saddens me - not because of Warren, but because of the state of the church. I'm lamenting the passing of the days when the kings of the earth would consult the prophets, not just subject themselves to interviews.
"So, I called them (Obama and McCain) up and said, let's do it. And they said, well, we'll do it if you be the only questioner, if you don't have a forum, don't have a panel. And if you'll ask all the questions, then we'll do it." - Rick WarrenFeel the difference in the reception?
"Is that you, oh Troubler of Israel?" - King Ahab
To be fair, Warren isn't consulting with these guys for direction, he's trying to give each one a fair hearing. He means well. I'm just wondering how we ended up operating as a non-prophet organization.
