Why We Should Be Very Concerned About Leonard Sweet and Rick Warren … and Their Plans for the Future

Leonard Sweet: He is quoted by Christian authors and leaders frequently. His name appears on many Christian ministry websites, and his books are used in countless Christian seminaries and colleges. Rick Warren endorsed the cover of one of his books (Soul Tsunami) and even did an audio series with him (Tides of Change) in the mid nineties.

(Sweet’s name also appears several times on Rick Warren’s pastors.com website.) Zondervan publishing publishes books by him, and he enjoys a spot on CCN (Church Communication Network) with Christian leaders like Joni Eareckson Tada, Stormie Omartian, and James Dobson (Focus on the Family). Reggie McNeal (Southern Baptist Convention), someone that many look up to, is part of Leonard Sweet’s Advances events. In A Time of Departing, Ray Yungen writes: [Leonard] Sweet is said to be “one of the church’s most important and provocative thinkers.” (quoting Robert Schuller) Clearly, Leonard Sweet is considered by many to be a trustworthy Christian leader.

But what does Sweet believe, and what is the message he is teaching? The best way to get the answers to these questions is to take a look at his book, Quantum Spirituality. Now while he wrote the book in the early 90s, he still believes in the message of this book. How do we know that? He offers a free download of the entire book on his website. If he had changed his mind about that book, realized in later years that it was heretical/New Age, he certainly would not be offering it on his website.
