Mark Driscoll accused of plagiarism by radio host

Syndicated Christian radio host Janet Mefferd accused Seattle pastor Mark Driscoll of plagiarism on her Nov. 21 broadcast. Mefferd claimed that Driscoll quoted extensively from the work of Dr. Peter Jones for at least 14 pages in his book, A Call to Resurgence, without direct or proper citation.

“In this book,” Driscoll responded, “I took [Jones’] big idea and worked it out through the cultural implications but I wasn’t working specifically from his text.”

Peter Jones is an author and adjunct professor at Westminister Seminary California whose areas of interest include “ancient and medieval paganism.” Driscoll said that most of what he’s learned from Dr. Jones was acquired in conversations over meals where Driscoll was not taking notes.

“Don’t you think that it’s important when you’re using someone else’s materials that you footnote the person?” Mefferd pressed. ...

If you have occasion to read quotes from Driscoll's book Confessions of a Reformission Rev it is obvious Driscoll has no fear of God. He is a blasphemer, a wolf in sheep's clothing. Avoid him. There are much better teachers around. Don't waste your time with Driscoll.

This is a bit disheartening. The devil is working overtime to create a wedge between believers. I think Ms. Mefferd, as the article points out, was wrong in her accusations and claims that Driscoll hung up on her (which the raw recording proved he did not). With that said, Driscoll himself has not been a humble servant himself, in my view, when it comes to his saturated presence everywhere. He's like the Christian Ryan Seacrest...every time I turn my head he is in the news. Humility is needed for all Christians, but needs to be prayfully and constantly pursued by those in the public arena.
