Great Sermon! HEY WINSTON: YOUR BLAMING THE MESSENGER AND NOT THE MESSAGE!! WHY ARE YOU UPSET WITH MS. MEDFORD????? WHY ARE YOU NOT UPSET WITH DRISCOLL??????? WHY AREN'T YOU UPSET WITH THE PEOPLE WHO MADE HER TAKE THE MESSAGE OFF??? DON'T YOU GET IT?
Heart breaking I am disappointed with Meford that she has to compromise her christian principles because of the legal system and pressure from her company. It makes me respect her less. But i still erespect her. I think in her position i wld bow down to external pressure too for fear of losing my only income n go thru the rigmorale of looking for anothervjob.
Big concern Sadly the christian Kumbaya with Mormons started over 10 years ago with Fuller theology president Richard Mauw condoning Mormons as Christian! I even got banned 10 years ago from my own church for trying to witness to Mormons who were allowed to park on my churches parking lot while they went to a mormon temple just down the street! Totally sad!
The Truth Reavealed It would seem that the receipt and credit card statement are proof enough of the hoax. One often wonders why people pull stunts like this, not that the answer would be satisfactory. This is further proof that we all are wretched sinners in need our Savior, Jesus Christ. People will continue to attack one another and those engaged in the homosexual lifestyle and agreeing with the choice of homosexual behavior have purposed to normalize this behavior and have it accepted by all. Christians must stand firm in a loving way.
Meford's right Meford is right when she said if a book is in public domain, it can be publicly talked about. I can't understand why, as a believer, Driscoll cannot take the criticism. When i was studying n writing essays n dissertations, i was scared stiff of plagarism. I had to ensure everything was acknowledged n claerly denoted. And that's in a private setting. In a public setting, acknowledgement of sources becomes even more crucial. And yes, christians should check themselves 1st before preaching to others. So what if it's a 'famous' person. Christ is no respecter of persons. Finally i'm sure, Trevor, u wld have loved to interview Driscoll n call him out on this issue :)
Great Sermon! Your presentations are always outstanding and informative.
As far as Mark Driscoll and plagiarism goes, if he in fact used others' ideas, he should 'man up.' One of the problems here is that church leaders and members may not understand plagiarism as an issue of character as it is more and more common for clergy to use those pre-packaged sermon plans, curricula and may treat such teaching as 'share ware.' This is not the only area in which the church infringes copyright; eg. the area of worship music. Pastor Driscoll was also brought up in another sermon as far as selling out on the Doctrine of the Trinity--- embracing sebellianism or modalism.
