Mark Driscoll explains the Emerging Church

Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church talks about the Emerging Church. If you are unfamiliar with this terminology this is a good introduction. Basically the Emerging Church is trying to address the glaring need the church has in America to re-reach our culture. Another word you may be hearing is the word “missional”. The underlying assumption is that the American church must evaluate the strategy that we have to be the mission to America. Every believer must see themselves as mission oriented, ie missional if we are to revive the church in America.

  1. The Bible warns us against false prophets and especially in the last days Christians must be careful about who they are following. Do not waste your time listening to those who twist the scripture. Be careful who you are following– Keep your focus on Jesus! Men like Driscoll will be held accountable on judgement day.

  2. When the Bible warns us against false prophets throughout the Pastoral Epistles and the rest of the New Testament, it gives us clear and transparent instruction on how to examine ourselves to ensure sound doctrine. (1 John 4:1) The Bible tells us to examine ourselves to make sure we are in the faith. (1 Corinthians 13:5) The Bible also identifies false prophets as those who preach a different gospel (Galatians 1:6-9) and those who Paul warned Timothy about in his second letter. (2 Timothy 4:3). When you describe Mark Driscoll as one of those who will be accountable on Judgment Day, what different gospel has he preached that would warrant such a statement. He may have been wayward early in his life, as we all were at one point. Lets not forget James 5; 19, 20. Mark runs a very sound ministry which is non-negotiable to the essentials of the Christian faith. Please list before me what is unsound according to the Bible that is propagated from the platform he has been given. We need to make sure that we “stop judging by mere appearance and make a sound judgment” (John7:24) if you are going to call out one of your brethren. For the Word of God is not to divide by vain opposition (ad hominem attacks), it “…is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3; 16, 17)

  3. Unfortunately, both theological camps are so stubborn that thousands of American Christians are forced to chose between EITHER a culturally relevant community w/ PC doctrine ( which is really no doctrine ) or a static and depressing “mechanical worship” format ( Godly attire preferred ) w/ sound biblical sound doctrine.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes.

What is the Church?

I miss going to church on Sunday. Our church has decided to not meet during COVID-19. We are taking what we consider to be the safe, love your neighbor approach.
