More and more Baptist pastors are failing. Many of them are moving into false doctrine. Many Baptist pastors come to the house and just ask if the person will sign a covenant in order to be a member of the church. They don't ask about being born again. Some even believe that the various denominations are the same. They have bought into Rick Warren's thing and have no doctrinal discernment. They advocate the Purpose Driven philosophy.
On page 12 of Warren's book "A Purpose Driven Life" he says that many have been captured under the cross, the moon and the hammer and the sickle, and, that the cross is not what the church is all about. The only symbols are concentric circles and baseball diamond. Many Purpose Driven churches have removed the cross.
