Rick Warren on thinking godly thoughts

This is really kind of creepy to me. Michelle Vu, Rick Warren: Ineffective Christians Usually Fail Battle of the Mind Christian Post 10/04/2010. It sounds like in Brother Rick's conception that only severe sufferers of obsessive-compulsive disorder can be "effective" Christians:

The Southern California pastor, known for his innovative thinking [?!?], lamented over how few pastors train their followers on how to fight the battle of the mind even though it is so critical to the fight against sin.

The mind is always rebelling but Christians need to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ, said Warren in his talk, titled "Thinking Purposefully for the Glory of Christ: Developing the Mind of Christ."

Taking control of the mind begins by not believing everything you think, Warren emphasized.

According to the popular preacher, many people think their thoughts are trustworthy because they originated from inside of them. But mental illness would disprove this argument. And everyone can be considered mentally ill because of something inside of them called sin, Warren said. This sin inside of people distorts what they believe and think to be true, he added.

Defend the bad against the worse."
