I wish I had a viral marketer to send my best blog posts out in press releases. The folks at The Washington Post and On Faith do, and their publicist just sent me a plug for a taped interview with Rick Warren, who you might know as “founding and senior pastor of the largest Christian church in California, best-selling author and influential evangelical leader Rick Warren.”
I’m having problems embedding the video, but here is a link to the highlights, in which Warren talks about why Jesus couldn’t have been “a good man,” why music is a proof for God’s existence and why atheists don’t believe.
A lot of times our morality tends to dictate our theology. And that is, well, like I said to Sam Harris. I said, Sam, if there was a God, would you have to change your lifestyle? And he said, ‘yeah’ and I said, ‘Well, I think really, Sam, you just donât want a boss. The bottom line is you don’t want a solving God who tells you this is right or this is wrong. And, you want to live a kind of life where you make your decisions rather than God saying this is what I want you to do with your life.
