Understanding how God equipped ancient believers, we will understand how God can outfit us. "Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.
Some people, however, were so offended by Driscoll’s sermon that they sent a CD copy to Rev John Mac Arthur in the USA.
Mac Arthur responded in a series entitled ‘The Rape of Solomon’s Song’ (2009), in which he deals with Driscoll’s flawed interpretation of Scripture.
Some of these pages figure prominently in various controversies involving Driscoll.
For instance, the page on Driscoll’s study guide on Peter is now missing. During a 2007 sermon, Driscoll famously wished he could “go Old Testament” on a couple of elders.
And third, do you agree with the decisions of Christian bookstores that have decided to pull Mark Driscoll’s books off shelves? He certainly gave me more time and counsel than I deserved. So there was a mutuality about this and I felt loved by Mark and I wanted to love him in return. When they said he had a demon, he didn’t have a demon. As soon as I could I put in place at Bethlehem a leadership structure that gave me one vote, first among 20, then among 30, then among 40. I had one voted, which means I could be voted down easily.
n recent weeks, many of Mark Driscoll’s sermons have disappeared from the Mars Hill Church website.
Many people have this material archived so I don’t know what Mars Hill Church hopes to accomplish.Below is an abstract from the introduction to Driscoll’s sermon in a church in Edinburgh—he offered the congregation a choice of three sermons, and asked them to choose. Here, also, are lessons for Christians when they become cold or backslidden, showing the way to recover Christ’s presence in their lives. Or third, I can talk about sexuality and cover the most exciting parts of the book of the Song of Solomon. So everyone gets to vote, and then I’ll teach on whatever it is you want. A more traditional interpretation of the Song of Solomon is provided by Dr Peter Masters of the Metropolitan Tabernancle in London.He is author of more than 50 books, including Reading the Bible Supernaturally.For 33 years, he served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Sometimes you can see what others are saying, pointing out to you about yourself and sometimes you can’t.However, this does seem like standard operating procedure when troubling content comes to light.
