At least two more Christian publishers are investigating concerns of plagiarism regarding Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle.
Crossway, which published Driscollâ€™s Death by Love, issued a statement saying, â€śWe are in touch with Mars Hill and are conducting an internal review to ensure that our books published by Mark Driscoll have proper citation and documentation.â€ť Crossway publicist Janni Firestone added, â€śAs of right now, weâ€™re not sure when the internal review will be complete.â€ť
Driscoll has published nine books with Crossway....
As for Mac's blood "heresy".....if it is only Christ's blood that saves, and not His death, then I guess John Yurich is the only one here who will be in heaven, as the rcc are the ones who claim to actually have a vial of His blood. Now John just has to figure out how to get his hands on it.
I said it before and I'll say it again. Mark Driscoll needs to be avoided like the plague. For all those who continue to defend him, I guess blaspheming the Lord Jesus Christ with references to sodomy is not enough to show that Driscoll has no fear of God, no reverence, no sense of the holy and the profane, no true love for God and His people. What does it take for this guy to reveal his true heart before he is seen as the wolf that he is? He thinks he is cute, but he is nothing but a false teacher leading astray those who follow him. Do your homework. He is unfit for the ministry and his own books prove it. His jokes about Jesus are not even to be repeated, they are so vile! Driscoll is digusting and his attitude is devilish!!! Earthly, sensual, and devilish!!!
Chewing out? LoL any man with a backbone can handle and give a sound rebuke. This is a time for those men. We are at war with false, spiritually damaging teaching and if you are not on the frontline you are on the other side. Please reconsider your comments about "chewing him out". It's not about him, it's about the Church, Christ's bride being taken advantage of and poisoned by men with no business in the pulpit. Jesus needs soldiers in his kingdom, nothing more, nothing less. Take up your arms, O Christian soldier! Take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God and wrestle no longer between His everlasting kingdom and this decaying world. Praise God in Christ Jesus! Praise The Lord for the Gospel, more powerful than any destructive force in mans arsenal! Praise God!
yes, I too read GS's link.... it is very concerning. how can we teach the true loving nature of marriage and respecting the "natural use" with the filthy stuff and links to weird sites? I think this reflects society's removal of distinction between profane and sanctified, but where is the repentance?
For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
1 I have done investigating on driscoll. So have many others. Go to pyromaniacs, apprising, Phil Johnson, GTY and on and on. He has never repented.
2 then please read 1 timothy again.
3 he affirmed both. TD is a modalist. Modalism is heresy, very serious.
4 since she presented FACTS (notice he didn't dispute) and he claimed this man to be his friend, maybe he would have been embarrased, heartbroken, sad, repentant? Maybe?
5 when you said you were just showing only Jesus was good. You should have originally said that but you called Abraham a liar. We have proof Abraham lied but God declared him righteous and anointed him.
6 yes you were and I acknowledged it but I also saw strawmen all over so I was weary especially in reference to comparison to myself and Calvin.

I second that G's. Earlier I was going to ask what Driscoll's appeal is with the YRR crowd... based on the comments, I cab see it's partly due to his rebellious and irreverent attitude. And we know what Scripture thinks of rebels.
