UPDATE: Yes, my trackback was removed :-(. Ingrid, I believe you are doing many things right and well. But personal attacks go too far. In my post earlier about Rick Warren, a commenter by the name of Adam made the right type of criticism of Rick Warren. God Bless your ministry and may he work in your life, and remind you, as well as myself, that we are all sinful. We all make mistakes…Rick Warren included.
Well, he is according to Slice of Laodicea. This “parable” is about those “thrown out” of churches for disagreeing with the Purpose Driven Life. This is blamed on Rick Warren…but is it really him that caused those people to be thrown out?
Here was the comment that I left which will probably not get through:
So you think Rick Warren is very similar to Hitler? Don’t you think that’s a bit much?
I think this parable goes too far. You know what’s funny…if you say anything good about Rick Warren in some places, you get thrown out.
Just an observation. God Bless…
And that’s in contrast with this comment:
“It’s an interesting analogy and not far off the mark. Warren has his own Goebbels (propoganda minister) and his own henchmen who stand ready to enforce support of the “fuhrer”. Except this one comes with a Hawaiian shirt and a big smile. Instead of brown shirts and jack boots, they have PR people on the net whose sole job it is to tear apart with fangs anyone who raises a single concern about Warren’s teachings. But like the former fuhrer who had to witness the destructin of his empire by the truth bombs of the Allied forces, there will come a day soon when truth will weigh against the false leadership in the PDL and the smoking ruins will be there for all to see. Sad but true. Thanx.

In all humility and respect to Mrs. Schlueter, I do believe that that article that she linked to went to far in it’s accusations. Even people living in Germany do not call the acts of the Government there against homeschoolers Nazism.
I don’t know if my comment will be accepted, but I believe that it’s true. Obviously, some have not read my last post on Rick Warren (76 comments and growing). Let me quote from it:
“Tim Challies criticisms have, unfortunately, turned into people like Ingrid Schlueter and Deborah Dombrowski. They’ve gone way to far. And all the “Rick Warren is a Satanist” commenters deserve to be banned from the internet. This makes the discussion uncivil. We don’t need that in the body of Christ. They aren’t looking at both sides of the issue, which could be slightly resolved if they were like Tim Challies. He looked at both sides of the argument. He did the right thing.”
Ingrid is a person who has done a lot of good things on her blog, but I’m seeing less and less of the good things and more and more personal attacks against Rick Warren, and yes, against those who defend or sypathyze with him.
