In the video that accompanies the ‘40 Days of Purpose’, (Rick) Warren leads his listeners in prayer at the end of the first session. The prayer goes like this:

Dear God, I want to know your purpose for my life. I don’t want to base the rest of my life on wrong things. I want to take the first step in preparing for eternity by getting to know you.Jesus Christ, I don’t understand how but as much as I know how I want to open up my life to you. Make yourself real to me. And use this series in my life to help me know what you made me for. -Rick Warren

Warren goes on to say:

Now if you’ve just prayed that prayer for the very first time I want to congratulate you. You’ve just become a part of the family of God.

The False Gospel of Rick Warren Rob Bell & Brian McLaren

Warren would be hard-pressed to find biblical backing for this presentation of the gospel. We find nothing here about sin, grace, repentance, the Person of Christ, Calvary, faith, judgement, or the resurrection.  This is the ultimate in a mutilated, seeker-sensitive gospel: the seeker comes to Christ in order to find his purpose in life, not to receive forgiveness from sin and the righteousness of God. Then, to pronounce someone a full-fledged member of the family of God because he has prayed such a prayer (based on minimal, if any, understanding of the person and work of Christ), is beyond tragic.  Ch. 10 of This Little Church Went To The Market
