The bottom line is this, if you feel Jesus is the ONLY means to salvation and you love unbelievers. No matter what other faith the unbeliever claims, if you have a book for them to read with the message of salvation in Christ noted. Telling them to skip that portion FAILS to show them true love. If you really LOVE THEM, than you desire for them to join you in the Kingdom of God.
See what Rick Warren had to say to Alan Colmes on the 12/20/2007 broadcast of the FoxNews program Hannity and Colmes.
(And watch Hannity groveling.)
Not that I find Rick Warren’s book The Purpose Driven Life to be a book I’d ever recommend to anyone and I only recommend you read Melvin Jones’ write-up Purpose Driven Tripe or The Bible Driven Life and the Bible instead. But to see Rick Warren recommend that Alan Colmes (who is Jewish and denies that Jesus is the Christ) SKIP portions of his book that mention things that might be offensive to someone who denies Christ, proves the book was not a work truly done in the Lord’s name. It’s about doing what Rick desires and I guess Rick feels Alan Colmes can find salvation in works of charity instead. Since he told Alan to SKIP to other parts of the book. And Rick pushing a works based salvation seems to be his way of doing things. Which is why a Roman Catholic like Sean Hannity feels so cozy with Rick, given Rick won’t dare chat with Sean Hannity about how Roman Catholic Tradition is unbiblical. But Rick Warren claims to be a pastor of a Protestant church assembly, one of the largest in the nation.
The Lord knew who to pick when He had Peter speak for Him, because Rick Warren will never utter the words noted in Acts 2:14-40 [click to expand link].

If we really want to show love, we can’t simply chuckle off and ask an unbeliever to skip the message of salvation. The message of faith on the Lord Jesus Christ by the grace of God, to the glory of our God.
