Passion Conference – Louie Giglio and his Emerging Agenda
Apparently to Louie Giglio digging wells is more important than preaching the saving gospel of Jesus Christ.
Now I know, y’all are gonna come here and give me grief; about how you have to “dig the well and build that bridge and create the relationship before you can preach the gospel.” I can’t find one instance of Jesus or any of the disciples and apostles building wells, planting crops, or educating people before preaching the gospel. They just went right in and preached.
You see you can build a well, but you can’t make the people drink.
Louie Giglio came onto the scene a while back as a Baptist (Calvinist). He alluded to the fact that being a Baptist you could trust him as someone who would never deceive anyone let alone the youth!
Well everyone thought that about John Piper too and look who he hangs around with now – Mark ‘Let’s Meditate’ Driscoll and Rick ‘Purposely Driven’ Warren. And guess who mentors Louie Giglio, well John Piper of course.
Regarding the Passion Conference: “The conference challenged students to worship the Lord with their lives and to impact the lives of others who are hurting all over the world.”
“Worship the Lord with their lives”? Ah they mean go out and do good works. And “impact the lives of others hurting all over the world“, by doing good works.

Passion Conference Raises over $1 MillionFriday, January 08, 2010 By Tracy Winborn – CBN News Producer
Thousands of college students from around the world converged in Atlanta this week at the Passion Conference 2010.
More than 20,000 students from 37 countries packed the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta for the four-day gathering.
The conference challenged students to worship the Lord with their lives and to impact the lives of others who are hurting all over the world.
Students answered that call by raising $1.3 million in global aid.
“Crazy. Thank you so much,” Passion Conference founder/director Louie Giglio told the students. “What a beautiful day, what a beautiful time. “We love you guys, we believe in you, and we believe even more in God. Let’s go live it out on our campuses.”
The money will be directed to sponsor children, an education center for Dalit people in India, to rescue women from the sex trade in Nepal, and to build wells, among other things.
Some of the ministries affected by the Passion outreach include World Vision, Hope International, and Compassion International.
