Rick Warren on the tragedy in Newtown, CT

The following was posted on after Rick Warren was interviewed by Neil Cavuto of  Fox News on December 19, 2012.

"Pastor Rick Warren joined Your World Wednesday to talk about how we as a nation can heal in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

He described the grieving process, saying, "What comforts us is the presence of others, the presence of God, and the first thing we have to do is we have to learn how to release our grief and we need to do that right now."

"What I've discovered is that grief is actually a good thing for us, it's a transition that helps us move through the losses of life. If you don't grieve, if you just stuff it down, then what happens is it comes out sideways somewhere later on in life."

Warren addressed how God could let such an atrocity happen, saying that God gave us free will. He said, "God wanted us to choose to love him – giving us a choice, I often make bad choices and so do other people […] and because of that everything in this world is broken, nothing works perfectly."

He also said that God's will is rarely evident on earth, "God's will is done perfectly and always done in Heaven. And almost rarely done on earth. People say, 'Well, that must be God's will.' That's nonsense. God's will is almost never done on earth because I have a will, and you have a will, we all have a will and we frequently choose to not do God's will."

The above comments by Rick Warren confirm how the false preachers and teachers of this world spread false and misleading doctrines that are totally distorted.
