However, documents recently released by Jim Hinch to Ken Silva of Apprising Ministries show how Hinch came to his conclusion in his story "Rick Warren Builds Bridge to Muslims."
The OC Register reporter shared a part of the King's Way document that was agreed upon by local Muslims and Warren's church. This document shows how Hinch came to his conclusions.
Below is the document provided to Apprising Ministries that centered on theological agreements:
I. WHO: we believe in
1. God is one (Mark 12:29; Muhammed 47:19)
2. God is the Creator (Genesis 1:1; Al Shura 42:11)
3. God is different from the world (1 Timothy 6:16; An An'am 6:103)
4. God is Good
a. God loves (1 John 4:16; Al Buruj 85:14)
b. God is just (1 John 1:19, Romans 3:26; Hud 11:45)
c. God's love encompasses God's judgment (1 Peter 4:8; Al A'raf 7:156; Al Ghafir 40:7)
The Register story based the phrases "same God" and "one God" on the phrasing in this document, which states that Christians and Muslims believe in one God.
It is clear from this document that Rick Warren is in theological error. In a recent Christian Post article, he said that he believed in the Triune God. However, again by promoting the above document, he is in error saying one thing and another thing later.
Steve McConkey, Director of BigWorldWatch.com, says "We are concerned that during these troubling times, there is not clarity in doctrine in churches. We need to reach out with love, but cannot compromise the basics of the faith."
