Thanks for the video Vic, but that isn't the one I was referring to...........I was speaking of his very first appearance on Larry King during his promotion tour of "A Purpose Driven Life." The interview was some years ago. Still, this interview was interesting.................and a wee bit troubling because whenever he is on Larry King, it seems King manages to focus on homosexuality vs. Christianity or God.
In the initial interview I am referring to, Larry King called, or speculated that God was homosexual, and Warren just sat there smiling with no response. King was asking him if God was a man or a woman, and Warren got into that "well, we were created in His image........" at which time King said......(as best I can recall) "Well is God both man and woman?" And Warren replied with some mumbling response about being created in His image again. Then King says....."well is he homosexual? Sounds like homosexual to me." Warren just sat there and did not challenge King for that statement............and for a man who professes to not only be a Christian, but a Minister, Pastor, Preacher, and Leader of a Church to allow such a thing to occur is beyone understanding or acceptance in my opinion.
In this transcript King asks Warren if God is male.http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0512/02/lkl.01.html
CNN LARRY KING LIVE
Interview With Rick Warren
Aired December 2, 2005 - 21:00 ET
KING: Why hasn't he come back?
WARREN: The Bible says Jesus Christ does not come back because he's being patient. That he is being patient--he wants everybody to have a chance to hear the good news and respond.
You know, God could have made us all puppets. You know, we'd all just be like marionettes and we pray six times a day and we all do the right thing, but that's not real love. You can only love if you have the choice not to love.
KING: Is God a he?
WARREN: I believe he is.
KING: A he? Male.
WARREN: Well, the Bible says that God refers to God as a he, so I'm going to refer to God as a he. That is what he chose, but he is clearly more than just a he because the Bible says he made man male and female in his image.
So they are male attributes of God and there are female attributes of God.
KING: Sounds homosexual. Sorry for bringing it up.
WARREN: No, I'm not going down that path.
KING: Wouldn't that be a story?
WARREN: No, no, not going down that path.
KING: We'll be back with more calls for Rick Warren. Don't go away.
