With the release of the Pokemon GO! phenomena sweeping the globe, we anticipated that sooner or later there would be seeker-driven churches once again relying on worldly methods to try and draw a crowd of people to church. Rather than “contend earnestly for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3), their latest approach as usual, will be entirely man-centered rather than Christ-centered.
The Super Apostle of the Purpose-Driven Life movement is also stooping to rely on the foolishness of this world to “win souls” to Jesus. Yes. Rick Warren is using Pokemon GO! to get people to church. Rick Warren doesn’t rely on the power of the Gospel and the Holy Spirit to draw people to be saved. He’s relying on the latest gimmick, exchanging the power of God for the latest popular fad?
We ask this question of you Rick Warren. Is “seeking and finding” Pokemon as worthy as seeking and finding Christ?
