Listen to Mark Driscoll explain why he needs Jesus.
Oh dear! What a poor misguided soul. But it is true that this form of theology causes and has caused untold unnecessary damage. Personally I think Mahatma Gandhi is closer to the truth (and if you don´t understand why I believe that, I am confident that God does!)
Sounded pretty solid to me. We are all sinners that deserve eternal punishment for our transgressions against God. We are zombies, walking corpses with scales over our eyes. Jesus saves who he wants to, by removing those scales and regenerating the heart and mind of the sinner, calling them to repentance and submission to their King. God's love is displayed gloriously both in the saving and transformation of the sinner as well as the just punishment and wrath poured out upon the unrepentant sinner.I strongly encourage anyone who finds themself in disagreement with what Mark is preaching here to read God's word in the Bible to see what He says about Himself. Romans, Ephesians, and Revelation would be a great start.Anonymous: this theology was very damaging to me. It damaged my pride, broke my selfish will, and called me to repentance. The true reading of God's Word repeatedly damages me, and then transforms me. Jesus says in John 14:6 'I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to father except through me.'Gandhi for all of the good he may have done for people didn't know Christ and therefore didn't know truth. In Gandhi's own words: "as a martyr, an embodiment of sacrifice, and a divine teacher, but not as the most perfect man ever born. His death on the Cross was a great example to the world, but that there was anything like a mysterious or miraculous virtue in it, my heart could not accept."
I would agree with contend for the faith.What Mark says is not evil, sin and sinners are evil
