….Mark Driscoll. One guy I don’t write on because, well, I have enough enemies. I know a lot of people who love him, and good for them. I don’t love him and I’m not really interested in going off about all the craziness that I see in the whole “Driscollanity” movement. He’s as theological consistent as an Amish hitman, but he has more than enough critics. I figure I can leave him be.
But, every now and then he just says things that are ignant. If you haven’t heard the news, Mark Driscoll basically thinks that cessationists are atheists…well, at least functionally.
I have nothing to say because Frank Turk says it all for me.
Well, I’ll say something. Exegesis is what makes the difference between personal opinion and biblical conviction. Mark Driscoll, at least on this issue, has nothing but personal opinion and his personal opinion is both misinformed and mistaken. Any guy who goes off that bad on a theological or biblical issue reveals how seriously he takes the scriptures.
That’s why I don’t really take, and have never really took, Mark Driscoll seriously. He is continually writing theological cheques his exegesis cannot cash.
Oh yeah…and Mark Driscoll calls the cessationists worldly?
I don’t even know what to say to that.
Until Next Time,
Lyndon “The Street Theologian” Unger
