Every pastor needs to read @chrisnye‘s #brilliant essay on a devious distraction to Christlike ministry. Chris offers great wisdom on this seductive trap christianitytoday.com/ct/2022/july-w… I’ve counseled too many pastors who lost their credibility, power & anointing due to this temptation.
Brian, there's never been any statement in the Baptist Faith&Message on 'ordination' because 1) The word isn't in the New Testament 2) Baptists have never agreed on its meaning & significance. Both Herschel Hobbs & Adrian Rogers (2 chairmen of BF&Ms ) told me that's the reason.
@RickWarren Thank you for your tweeting the truth. According to Revelation 5:9 and 7:9 racial differences will exist in heaven.

@RickWarren I’m amazed by how many Christians on this thread seem to hsve not read Revelation 7:9.

Never be enamored by the claim “New York Times Bestselling Author!” On a slow-selling wk, ANY book might make that list for 1 WEEK by selling just a few thousand copies. Then Publishers put “NYT Bestselling Author” on their other book covers for the next 20 yrs. It’s deceptive
“We live in the world, but we do not fight in the same way the world fights. We fight with weapons that are different from those the world uses. Our weapons have power from God that can destroy false strongholds.” 2 Cor. 10:3-4
You cannot win any spiritual battle using worldly weapons. Christ's weapons were love, truth, forgiveness, sacrifice, and his death on the Cross. Read 2 Corinthians 10:3-4
Every true saint throughout history has always lived counter-cultural, and therefore they were misunderstood.
In Heaven, YOU will be a minority! Get used to it. Most Christ-followers in the world don’t look like you, think like you, or vote like you. They’re saved by grace thru faith, Jesus-lovers from every era of time & place If diversity scares you, you’ll hate heaven. Rev. 5:9
"Blessed are those who defend justice and do what is right at all times." Psalm 106:3 (GW)
Young ministry leaders, no one is self made. Honor eaders who have paved the way for you and opened doors for you. @_DavidChadwick mentored me. @Clayton_king got me started in ministry in 1999. @RickWarren has mentored me. Norm Geisler & @scotmcknight taught me. THX U

Love you back Maurice! Thank you for your kind words and shout out. I dedicated that book to all bi-vocational pastors and to seminary professors like you. You guys are the heroes! @DrMauricePugh Still a nice read #purposedrivenchurch instagram.com/p/CgC9UFQuCxQ/
You've heard it said: "Love the sinner & hate their sin" I'd rather: Love everyone & hate MY OWN sin. I don't know how some find so much time to condemn others. Do they never sin? "Whatever measure you use to judge others will be used to measure how you're judged" Jesus
When you live with grief, you can't afford to waste any emotional energy on petty, picky, prejudiced, or pugnacious people. Forgive them & forget them and move on.

My true gratitude to you friends for your kind words, sympathetic hearts, and loving prayers. Right now 3 generations of my family are zip-lining down a mountain together! My big thrill is reading Twitter. Ha! #DontGetCovidOnVacation
Pro athletes posting videos of themselves working out is kinda funny. Like, bro, that's just you doing your job. I'm gonna post long videos of me doing sermon prep at my desk and be like: Back in the lab. 📚 Train more. Win more. See ya on Sunday. 🏋️‍♂️💪🏆

Every summer I take 3 generations of my family on a travel vacation somewhere fun. When covid hit in 2020 & 21 we all decided to stay home for 2 yrs This week we resumed our travel vacations! On Day 3 I was taken to an ER... with covid! Now Papa is quaranteening while they play.
My patience with mean or angry or judgmental folks increased greatly when a friend taught me to stop asking (in my mind) "What's WRONG with you?" and start asking (in my mind) "What HAPPENED to you?" What made you so angry or mean? Hurt people hurt other people
One of the brightest minds & clearest voices of this generation: @JaminGoggin. Read "The Way of the Dragon or Way of the Lamb" & everything else he & @KyleStrobel write! So proud of his Aberdeen PhD. Jamin grew up at Saddleback & served as one of our pastors for years. #Kristin
We're all are like tubes of toothpaste. Whatever's inside you comes out when you're squeezed under pressure. Am I filled with anger or graciousness?
To all you dear friends in Canada: Happy Canada Day! Rick Warren
If I'm filled with myself, almost anything can irritate me. When I'm filled with Jesus, almost nothing can irritate me. Anger reveals the conflict inside you. (James 4:1) Kindness reveals peace inside you. (Prov.14:30)
Grief is just an expression of love. If you've never grieved over anyone, you've never loved anyone.
I drove the same Ford truck for 20 yrs, then got another one. Today I felt like this guy when it cost me $164 !!!! to fill up.
God led me to this text in my quiet time devotions through Genesis this morning. No bullies or opposition can thwart God's love, grace, & plan for you. Thank you Father!
The Supreme Court has overturned ROE v WADE ending the federal support of abortion! Millions of unborn Americans say thank you! supremecourt.gov/opinions/21pdf…
It was by THE GRACE OF GOD that my mom gave birth to me––she had run away from Texas as a teen, hitchhiked her way to another state, and ran into the arms of a man who'd lead her into the throes of alcohol and drug abuse, only to discover she was carrying me soon thereafter.

In life pain is inevitable; misery is optional. Never waste a hurt! Use it to help others. Your greatest contribution will likely come out of your deepest pain IF you're vulnerable with God & others. God uses your weakness, not just strengths. Endurance encourages others,
Once we believe something, it starts to shape us and if what we allow in is garbage, the resulting thoughts and emotions will also become… garbage.

"RADICAL GRATITUDE CREATES FELLOWSHIP" is today's brief devotional by @RickWarren. How can you be #thankful even in difficult circumstances? You can thank God in every circumstance because He is in control. pastorrick.com/have-radical-g… #life #faith #gratitude #God #love #fellowship

3. My high-school science teacher reached out and said that he was proud of me, which was a personal win, since I accidentally shattered a petri dish in class once by doing something stupid. Maybe I've made up for that.

It breaks my heart how both Wandrea Shaye Moss and her mom, Lady Ruby Freeman were treated in such despictable, shameful ways for standing for truth. Thank you for modeling courage in the face of evil. You are #WomenOfIntegrity #TrueHeroes
Is life wearing you down? Jesus: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
Wow. @speakerbowers heroic testimony today. Rarely do you ever see such courageous rock-solid #integrity in the face of extreme pressure, bullying, slander, harassing his family & death threats. Rusty's not my faith, but I honor anyone who fearlessly does what's right & true.
Many asked HOW to train 1.1 million pastors 1 Take 43 yrs 2 Take 20 yrs to write the Courses 3 Translate into the 18 largest languages 4 Send 26,869 members to 197 nations 5 Recruit & train 1000s of local trainers 6 Use large stadiums & small huts everywhere 2 Tim 2:2=exponential
By the way, since NOT ONE critic this past yr took the time to ask: Saddleback is led by a dozen Elders They're all married men as Titus 1:6 requires "Shoot first.Clarify later" shows they have unloving reasons to hate you "Speaking before listening is foolish & rude" Pr.18:13
The book, The Purpose-Driven Life by @RickWarren remains one gift I wish I could give everybody. It shines a light so bright and paves a path so clear.

Pastor, maybe you feel like your sermon stunk to high heaven, attendance was down, kids were rowdy, or just nothing went right today––if you proclaimed Him and preached the Word, God will use your faithfulness more than you know. Rest up, then back at it this week.

#SBCfamily Thank you! Past 6 days I’ve received over 4,800 emails, texts, letters & calls expressing your love, joy, relief & support. Also your standing applause in Anaheim touched me. ALWAYS be loving & kind no matter how others act. They are brothers in Christ. Gal. 5:13-15
I’m thankful for @RickWarren’s courageous advocacy for full religious liberty for Muslims, our different opinions over pastoral complementarianism notwithstanding. It was a pleasure to meet him this week. #SBC22
