Mark Driscoll: 'The Church is Dying'

Outspoken pastor Mark Driscoll says Christians need to be of stronger resolve because of "darker" days, and argues that "the church is dying," in a promotional letter for an upcoming leadership conference in Seattle.

"Four years ago, Newsweek magazine proclaimed 'The Decline and Fall of Christian America,'" Driscoll writes in the letter addressed to "Christian" on the 2013 Resurgence Conference website. "Their words, written on the cover in the shape of a cross, ring disturbingly true today."

"Christians are being ostracized, gay marriage is being legalized, the bandwagon has stopped carrying us and has started running over us," he continues in the letter. "The church is dying and no one is noticing because we're wasting time criticizing rather than evangelizing. ...

No the Church is not dying. It is shrinking which is a whole different ball game. These times are going to be difficult and are going to put us through more intense tribulations as time goes on. But the Church cannot die since its life is in Christ and always has been. As for the obvious diminishing of numbers - together with the reduction in true Bible preaching these are signs of the end times and we are getting closer to that final event. When we read of the decline and eventual death of Sodom and Gomorrah we see that God protects even the smallest of numbers of believers thus the smallest church, then when there are no Christians left the end is brought about by God Himself. There still is a true Church preaching the true message of Christ Jesus today so we will continue for a while yet, praise be to God. Amen.

Daniel 7:21 sounds like the church will indeed "lose"--if you can call it that--at least for a time; but Christ's return will insure it's ultimate revival/glorification.

Yes, the visible churches have no life in them. Driscoll is right, and he is part of the problem. His 'new calvinistic/mysticism type' beliefs are the reason churches are dying. The power of God only lies in the true preaching of His word. Believers flourish in churches where truth is still heard. Sadly, those type of churches are few and far between. The visible churches are riddled with control freaks, power hungry pastors who abuse the flock, or WOF pastors who fleece the flock. God's people are suffering from a famine of truth in the land, because men love the praises of men rather than trembling at God's word.

The bride of Christ is not dying, she is growing in the grace and knowledge of her Lord, in spite of the train wreck that calls itself 'church'. The Lord protects His own, His little flock. All those outside Christ will continue to build the apostate church; Driscoll is a huge contributor to this apostate church.

I agree with these posts!

Truly encouraging.

RWar, what is he going to do next? He was making the churches of Africa the local depots for the globalist agenda while bringing in these strange philosophies into the churches of america, when the elders of the churches were questioning things, they were called resistors and manipulated out the back door. This happened in many places. His son dies and he blames it on some guy in California?? I'm sorry to be so personal, but he put everything personal right there on the screen.

Of course these gentlemen are going to lead the way for pastors to be encouraged during changing times... but into what? I'd rather see our pastors praying with their own people and letting the Spirit of God prepare them to be set apart.

Bring in our old German, Romanian, Chinese brethren who walked through Communism and learned how to suffer for Christ and keep their testimony, this is what the people need to hear, not some steroid pumped up message about telling everyone about Jesus so that we can get our voting block back.

The fake church is dying while Driscoll has the leader of the dying church, Warren, at a "conference". The gospel doesn't need a few famous speakers, it demands an army of red hot disciples who shun the spirits of the age and live unto Christ and His word. Anecdotal sermonizing from a hipster Powerpoint presentation will not "save" the church.

Precisely GS Texas!

But it still could do with the revival fires to make it glow brightly as it should do. On Tuesday at the Indoor Market where I try to sell paintings, a friend leant me two tiny spotlamps, battery powered with LED lights. When shone on two of my paintings, they shone out so much that they could be noticed at the other end of the hall, and looked amazing. My guess is that if our Lord was to revive his church, it would have a similar effect, and people would be forced to take notice of our presence, and see our joyfulness, peace and holy life, by his grace and the power of the Holy Spirit.
