hello whispering grace, i have listened to and learned much from Driscoll and have found that many of these types of claims have been very misleading and paint Driscoll to be something he is not. I would humbly ask that you visit his website at www.marshillchurch.org and listen to a few of his sermons yourself (a good one is the newest one, Trial and Sin) and then decide if what is reported about him is actually true.
it is very sad to see these kind of accusatory claims when i have sat under and learned so much from mark about Jesus and repentance and be willing to be persecuted for our faith.
as i said, and this goes for all, please watch at least 5 of mark driscolls sermons for yourself, and then come to your conclusion, rather than just going along with a website article. I am confident that you will see a man who loves Jesus who is being unfairly drawn as a villian in Christianity.
Mark walks a fine line between what is biblically acceptable and culturally relevant. I admit that occasionaly he sometimes goes to far but as i said for the most part he keeps it apporpriate. Sites like laodecia pick out and magnify all his worst moments and ignore his great contribution to thousands coming to know and love christ as lord and savior. Mark has openly admitted that he has said things he shouldnt have and has been progressively getting better at controlling his tounge. Much of the sex comments come from his preaching through the book of Song of Songs. However, prior to that, he preached through books such as revelations, genesis, corinthians, ephesians, john etc and many more. All he did was preach about what was written in Song of Songs, since no one else wanted to preach on it, and since American Christians had tons of questions on sex in the Christians life. Sex is a gift from God that we are to enjoy, and Mark went into detailed discussion on the subject, which i thank him for. it is very sad imo to see all those who would like to ignore Song of Songs to then come and accuse him of being a "rated R" preacher and all these things. He simply preaches the Bible. Song of Songs is a rated R book. Hebrew children where not even allowed to read it until they were older in Jewish times. The fact is, Mark has already finished that series and is now in 1st peter and people are still angry about the Song of Songs series
