Given his propensity to twist the Word of God out of context and his urging of Christians to avoid “End Times Prophecy” by an unbelievable butchering of a biblical text, we are not surprised by Rick Warrenâs latest adventures in singing the praises ofÂ terrorist HizbollahâsÂ Syrian sponsors, and doing so the very week that Lebanese Christian leader Pierre Jemayliel was assassinated by Syrian backed interests.
Neither are we surprised by Rick Warren teaming up with John Ortberg in his âpeace planâ. Ortberg wants Christians to demand that Israel forfeit more of its biblical covenant land to Islam.
Finally, given their track record , we are not surprised by the shameful actions of Ari and Shira Sorko Ram and their MAOZ organization in translating Rick Warrenâs books into Hebrew for distribution in Israel at the same time Warren is on his march against Israel and biblical prophecy and is now lauding Jew-hating Syria, whose sponsoring of Islamic terror murders Jews. This is precisely what we have come to expect from MAOZ.
It was federally indicted money preacher Morris Cerulloâs book distributed in Israel without the consent of the local Israeli congregations (condemned by a host of Israeli messianic pastors) that provoked Israelâs anti-evangelism law making it more legally difficult to present Yeshua to Jewish souls in Israel. The book had the address of the Sorko Ramâs MAOZ ministry on the cover. Now these same MAOZ people are collaborating with a pro-Syria Rick Warren in what many if not most people could only interpret as a further betrayal of Israel by them.
