The Rick Warren Shuffle

Rick Warren has backed away from his earlier support of California’s “Proposition 8.”  You can read about it here.  One may seem to wonder why Warren would do such a thing?  Dr. Jim Garlow, the senior pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church seems to have is own idea as reported in the article linked above.  In it Garlow says,

Historically when institutions and individuals back away from convictional biblical truth, it is driven primarily by one single factor — and that is the respectability of other people. In other words, much more caring about what other people think about them than what God thinks about them,

I don’t know if this is the case with Warren, but I am disappointed in his recent shuffle away from supporting Proposition 8.
