IS OPPOSITE TO UNION 2
The Founder of Purpose Driven is Rick Warren.
His admitted mentor was Drucker
whose philosophy was based on Aristotle, Kierkegaard and Kant.
The Word of God declares .....
The name of the Head of the Church is JESUS as is the NAME OF THE BODY: Rom. 11; John 15:7
If we are the branches or the lump –
how can we bear a different name?
Rom. 11:16 For if the first fruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
How can you have independent branches of the same vine?
Prophecy through David P Griffiths
Hear this! Hear this! saith the Lord - the message I give to you today is one of union - one in the Godhead, of man - a formerly walking Satan, now by grace a walking "christ"
There is only one Christ but that Christ takes over the tripartite man making him fully holy unto the Lord through my blood. No longer is he under the control of Satan but instead on this earth the manifestation of me.
The philosophers draw a distinction between God and man but I have REMOVED THE VEIL - THAT THE HEAVENLY PLACES BELONG TO THOSE WASHED AND MADE PURE BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB.
Hear my word! Hear my word! This is the Word of Life!
John 15: 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, andcast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Col. 1: 27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every manperfect in ChristJesus: 29 Whereunto I also labour,striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

John 1:12-14; I Peter 1:23
Born of blood, flesh or of God beholding whose Glory?
John 1: 12 But as many as received him, to them gave hepower to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)full of graceand truth.

Is the temple of God not holy?
I Cor 3: 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God,and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God,him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 18 Let no man deceivehimself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool,that he may be wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your's; 22 Whether Paul,or Apollos,or Cephas,or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or thing to come; all are your's; 23 And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
II Cor 6: 16 And what agreement hath the temple of Godwith idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, Iwill dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shallbe my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate,saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith theLord Almighty.
To conclude therefore, it is clear that "Purpose-Driven" and the philosophies and philosophers behind it have no clue of the union between God and man, that through the blood of Jesus has come a glorious Church, without spot nor blemish fully one in the Trinity and that the "man" side is gone for ............
1 John 4:17 King James Version (KJV)
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment:
because as he is, so are we in this world.
