Christian Post – Pastor Rick Warren has hailed the congregation at his California-based Saddleback Church as it became the first in U.S. history to baptize 50,000 people.
“I never stop being amazed by you. You are extraordinary people, and I continually thank God for what you mean to me,” Warren stated in a letter to the people of the megachurch, shared Saturday on Facebook.
The pastor looked back over the 38 years of milestones that Saddleback has been achieving, such as becoming the first to grow to 10,000 in worship without owning a building, and the first to send the Gospel to all 197 officials nations in the world.
This weekend marked another major milestone, as the 50,000th person was baptized into the faith at Saddleback.
“Imagine all the amazing personal stories of changed lives behind that number! 50,000 individual lives transformed by Jesus since Saddleback Church began. This is unprecedented in history! YOU are likely one of those stories of a changed life!” read Warren’s letter.
The best-selling author said that “love” is the main reason why the church has been so successful. Read the rest at the Christian Post
I am sure in the 50,000 they baptized, there are hundreds of homosexuals, lesbians, tranny’s, pedophiles, drunkards, and the like, found in 1st Corinthians 6:9-11 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
1st Corinthians 16:22 “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.”
Anathema - a person or thing accursed or consigned to damnation or destruction.
- the Lord is coming” or “come, O
LAKE FOREST, Calif. — A now former volunteer youth mentor at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church who reportedly also worked in the “technology, communication and marketing ministries” department has been convicted of committing lewd acts with two teenage boys.
Ruven Meulenberg, 33, was convicted by a jury on Wednesday of engaging in inappropriate conduct with twin brothers when they were 13 and 14, reports the Orange County Register.
According to the outlet, Deputy District Attorney Courtney Thom told jurors that the two boys went with Meulenberg to see a movie, and Meulenberg had one of the brothers sit on his lap. He then allegedly kissed the child on his head and cheek, and then in the mouth. Thom said that Meulenberg asked the boy to kiss him, but he refused.
Meulenberg then did the same with the other boy, and also had the teen sit between his legs on the ride home.
One of the brothers told his mother what had happened when he returned home. She, in turn, called Saddleback to report the incident, and an official there called the police. One of the teens reportedly made a call to Meulenberg with a police officer secretly listening in, and during the call, Meulenberg was stated to have apologized and promised to not do it again.
Thom told the court that Meulenberg had engaged in inappropriate contact with the boys once in 2016 as well.
Meulenberg’s attorney, Brian Gurwitz, argued that Meulenberg is “factually innocent of all charges” and that his client has “zero sexual attraction to boys.” He said that police had been “extremely close-minded” about Meulenberg’s innocence as they failed to check his computer for any child pornography and failed to record an interview with the teen brothers.
Gurwitz pointed to Muelenberg’s work with “countless” children over the years, helping them with their behavioral issues.
As previously reported, Muelenberg worked as a volunteer youth mentor with Saddleback for six years. Saddleback’s website states that its junior high ministry is “designed specifically to help 7th-8th graders connect with Jesus, each other and a caring adult.”
