If you’ve ever though that Mark Driscoll was a valid leader in the church,
please just read this article.
Disclaimer: Go ahead, have strange worldviews as a believer. Fight through the Word and modern day and Biblical times, wrestle with God about what’s right and wrong. It’s okay to be human. But if you’re PASTORING A CHURCH and INSTRUCTING YOUNG DISCIPLES and the things you’re believing, teaching and instructing are COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY UN-BIBLICAL (see: “God doesn’t just hate what you do, He hates who you are”), YOU NEED TO STEP OFF THAT PODIUM AND LET SOMEONE ELSE DO THE LEADING BECAUSE YOU ARE SIMPLY NOT EQUIPPED TO SHEPHERD A FLOCK.
Also: Do I believe in Christians fighting Christians over non-essentials? Nope. However, this is NOT a non-essential issue in the church. To pastor a church and have views that are totally opposite of what the Bible says on men, women, relationships, hell, God’s grace and the purpose and meaning of the cross means that you’re leading hundreds and thousands of people astray. And as a believer, I do NOT approve of what this man is teaching. Moreover, I would say that if you agree with the teachings of Mark Driscoll, that you are not believing the true Word of God.
Another disclaimer: This is not the only ridiculous, un-Biblical, completely mind-blowingly inaccurate thing that Mark Driscoll has ever said. Here are a few more, in case you’re wanting to fight me on this:
Driscoll punches himself in the face five times, as a display of a Godly man who is manly. (I wish I were joking)
Driscoll tells us about how blatantly satanic Avatar is. (Dude, CHILL)
Driscoll tells his congregation that God not only hates what they do, but that He hates who they are. (This one takes the cake- grace, anyone?)
Driscoll is cray-cray. (Read those links, yo)
