I will start this post with an apology, because I’m bound to upset someone! You know I am not always the biggest fan of what Mark Driscoll has to say, but why is it everyone is having a good old Mark bash again? He has been critical of fellow Christians, so now many Christians are being publicly critical of him. Is this how Jesus would encourage us to handle things? Now there is the “wink” thing going around as well. It all seems really un-Christian and immature to me. I do not condone or agree with what Mark has said about some of the emerging church’s leaders, and I don’t think he should have publicly done this, but maybe we should all just leave him and the people he spoke about to air their issues in private.
I have read about how people feel Mark is quiet about things, then he says stuff to get a reaction. Why do people respond to this? He’s got a reaction again. If people didn’t respond and react to him, then he wouldn’t be in the lime light – folks we’re putting him there (me included by writing this post). I really don’t think we are here to point fingers amongst each other. It is just the enemy’s way of causing disunity amongst Christians – and let’s face it there is enough of that! Let’s leave this to one side now and get on with looking at the important issues in life which we should be tackling and inputting on. Just my $0.02.
