Last night Mike Horton participated in the Lausanne Movement’s “12 Cities 12 Conversations” gathering at Saddleback Church. This is the second conversation Mike participated in; the first was at Fuller Seminary. The Lausanne Movement’s worldwide congress on missions is to be held in Cape Town, South Africa this October. These conversations are leading up to that congress and are taking up important issues of the church’s identity and mission.

The best report from last night’s gathering is that Rick Warren hugged White Horse Inn producer Shane Rosenthal, calling himself a “purpose driven hugger!”  Shane also got this pic of Mike Horton and Rick Warren, proving once again that nothing (not even Rick Warren) gets between Mike Horton and his Calvins.

    Hugs i guess cover a multitude of false teachings?

    Yeah I agree to what Paula said….very weird and confusing for Mike to do this.

    Any chance we’ll see something similar with Horton and Osteen? 😉

    I think Warren is coming out of his Calvin closet. He’s been seen hugging Driscoll, Piper, and now Horton. Who’s next Packer?

    What was accomplished in this meeting? Everyone kissed and made up????

    I think if the apostle Paul was here he would have turned Rick Warren over to Satan for his false teachings instead of taking a Polaroid with him. Oh well…

    Was that before the beer and cigar or afterwards? Just kidding…

    I am terribly saddened that Dr. Horton does not withstand Mr. Warren to his face as a distorter of the gospel, as Paul did to Peter. Hm. My respect is diminishing!

    My respect totally remains, but I, also believe that this photo was a bad idea and gives the wrong impression.

    Before everyone goes flying off the deep end about this, I would highly suggest taking a look at:
    Then, by all means, if you want to read into this picture a thousand speculative words of your own choosing and wild imaginations, go right ahead!

    Photo ops are, and always have been done to send a message. Michael Horton is well respected and has been used mightily by the Lord. It is for that very reason that I hate to see him being part of whatever message Rick Warren is sending.

    I wonder if Calvin is rolling in his unmarked grave for fears of idolatry? Calvinistic Icons, Awesome! I wonder how they fit in the regulative principle?

    It’s the new Blackhorse Inn image.
