Reformed. Christianity. Evangelism. Modern Culture.
Pastor Mark Driscoll was the subject of discussion in many blogs recently. I will not repeat the issues of contention (and neither will I link to them) but it seems the elders in his church have taken him to the wood shed and left him with a flea in his ear, he is now in the repentance corner…again.
I then put a flippant comment on Facebook, and a raging debate on gender and related issues ensued. As a man under authority, my executive elders sat me down and said I need to do better by hitting real issues with real content in a real context. And, they’re right. Praise God I have elders who keep me accountable and that I am under authority.
The question that some circles will always keep bringing up is: What else shall we do in order to reach a generation weaned on Ultimate Fighting, South Park, and hip-hop?
At least one excuse has been scrawled off the wall -thanks to Mark. When talking to men about church, no more doodling and twiddling thumbs about macho bible heroes as draw strings like David being “a warrior king who started killing people as a boy and who was also a songwriter and musician”.
Just preach the gospel, Mark. It is still the power of God for salvation both for the blue and white collared guys…and the effeminate ones too.
