Chris Rosebrough tackled a very dangerous teaching that Rick Warren promoted not long ago. The way Rick Warren elevated the human imagination above truth, faith, reason and the bible is simply breath-taking.

This quote from Martin Lloyd Jones came to mind why the imagination should not be exalted:
There are highly respectable men and women who would never dream of committing an act of adultery, but look at the way in which they enjoy sinning in the mind and in the imagination. We are dealing with practical matters, we are dealing with life as it is…How often do men sin by reading novels and biographies. You read the reviews of a book and find that it contains something about a man’s misconduct or behavior, and you buy it. We pretend we have a general philosophical interest in life, and that we are sociologists reading out of pure interest. No, no; it is because we love the thing; we like it. It is sin in the heart; sin in the mind!
