Rick Warren to host daily radio show
After resisting doing a radio or TV program for 32 years, megachurch pastor Rick Warren announced a deal with Salem Communications to broadcast a half-hour radio show in the 25 largest U.S. markets.

“Daily Hope” will air Monday through Friday to bring hope to a discouraged country, Warren told reporters at a press gathering hosted by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs’ Religious Freedom Project at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., last week.

“Along with his popularity, he has many critics, including James Sundquist, author of “Who’s Driving the Purpose Driven Church?” Sundquist also was one of the voices in a video by producer Elliott Nesch called “Church of Tares,” which asserts Warren has built his many organizations on secular business management philosophies rather than the foundation of Jesus Christ, resulting in “a great compromise of the Great Commission.”

“The importance of Dr. Warren and the Purpose Driven Church movement at this time is that he has suddenly decided to utilize mass communications to spread his heresy. He seems to have chosen radio rather than television, probably because time on TV is more limited, more costly, and more difficult in both time and labor to produce. How this relates to Southwest Radio Church Ministries is that we, one of his most determined detractors, cannot now say anything negative about him or the Purpose Driven Church on our program. The reason being that Dr. Warren is contracting with major radio networks, and they would not permit us to say anything negative about one of their best customers.” Dr. Noah W. Hutchings, President Southwest Radio Church Ministries, http://www.swrc.com, June 2013 Prophetic Observer, page 3.

[Note]. This censorship had already happened to SWRC’s Watchman on the Wall Radio Show in Southern California a few years ago on a Christian radio station in Los Angeles because it was in the same neck of the woods as Warren’s Saddleback Church. But there is a big difference. That was only one station in the U.S., not the entire United States. This means there is an effective blackout from the entire nation hearing the testimonies of any victims of Purpose Driven Churches on radio. And when have you ever heard a single testimony on Television? Certainly not on Fox News, as it is a propaganda tool for Rick Warren, since it is owned by Rupert Murdock.

    I found the dialogue about Christian and Missionary Alliance interesting.
