Defending Driscoll?

Recently, it has come to our attention that Mark Driscoll is a bullying asshole. That’s not really a revelation of startling proportions, is it? I mean, we already knew he was a bullying asshole. But now, we have  new information to reinforce that fact. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, a little over 10 […]

The Bible

In “Seriously, But Not Literally“, I talked about how progressive Christians view the Bible. That view is at odds with more fundamental, conservative Christians who see the Bible as inerrant and even some more moderate ones who believe the Bible is infallible.  I’ve written about this several other times since I started this blog and […]

Is God Going to Burn it All Up?

At the latest Catalyst conference, Mark Driscoll said “I know who made the environment and he’s coming back and going to burn it all up. So yes, I drive an SUV.” This is the perfect lead in to talk about environmental stewardship. Regardless of what Brother Mark and his compatriots might say, we are given the […]

Act Like a Man?

Mark Driscoll has a new conference heading our way this fall called “Act Like Men”. According to Matthew Paul Turner, “It appears to be just like Promise Keepers, except with beer drinkers and free rulers for measuring things”. God knows, Pastor Mark has plenty to say on this subject (manhood, not measuring…, things); in fact , he […]

The Rich Young Man

A certain ruler asked Jesus, “Good Teacher, what must I do to obtain eternal life?” Jesus replied, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except the one God. You know the commandments: Don’t commit adultery. Don’t murder. Don’t steal. Don’t give false testimony. Honor your father and mother.” Then the ruler said, “I’ve kept all of these things […]

Did it Really Happen That Way?

As this season of Advent began, I had all intentions of doing several posts about it. Events, however, didn’t allow for that because I try to write about things while they’re current and the events in  Newtown were something that couldn’t be ignored. But, while there are things I still want to address on that subject, today I’m […]

What it Means to Be a Man

What with Mark Driscoll’s new book on marriage and his winning ways of relating to the world, the question of manhood is making the rounds again. Okay, maybe not in normal people circles, but it is all the rage in Bloggerworld (a very odd parallel universe where people obsess over esoteric religious questions). Of course, Pastor […]

It’s Complimentary!

Mark Driscoll is one of those people who set my teeth on edge.  Invariably, some blogger/reporter/random person will relate something he’s said and I’m astounded at just how asinine it sounds.  A couple of days ago, Driscoll posted this status: “Mars Hill Church now has over 50 pastors, some paid & some unpaid. 20 more men […]
