Mark Driscoll on Nightline

28 Jan

This went well.  No matter what Ingrid, Slice of Sin and Campi say it would be completely inapproriate for Mark not to confront his congregation on sexual issues,  as it would have for the Apostle Paul to ignore incest in the church at Corinth.  As a side note I have heard every sermon since 2005 and he does not talk about sex as much as any of them would suggest…

    I was going to write a post against Slice of Laodicea but I came to the conclusion it’s not a Christian blog. I don’t mean that as an insult I mean it descriptively. Slice isn’t written by people who believe the gospel. Sure they believe that Jesus died and was resurrected to atone for sin but they believe it in the same way the Pharisees believed. They’re not on the same planet as gospel driven biblical christianity. Campi is a little better but not much.

    Driscoll was great. These folks, and Nightline for that matter, prove Driscoll’s point about how backward this country is about sex when they’re shocked by a pastor dealing with sexuality.

    I’m fairly convinced Slice is actually using an ingenious strategy though. The blog is flame bate. However there’s no comment section so people go and vent about Slices crap on their own blogs which in turn makes the readers of those blogs go check Slice out. It’s a genius strategy on the part of Slice to generate traffic to their blog. On the other hand it sickens me that every person I try to share the gospel with needs years of relational “rehab” before they even can distinguish the gospel from all the rest of the politically driven legalistic moralism that passes for christianity out there.

    Not sure who you are, but you say something that is worthy of some sort of award. When referring to Slice of Skubalon and you say:

    The blog is flame bait

    Genius. Simply Genius

    The way I see it, our culture discusses and interacts with sex almost 24/7, and will get even more saturated with it (if that’s even possible). Driscoll is doing a good work by discussing what our culture is already deeply embedded in–but from a Biblical perspective. It’s refreshing to hear a pastor speak so frankly and positively about great, pleasurable, sanctified, married sex.
