The Shock Jock of the Evangelical World

In light of Mark Driscoll's recent sexual innuendos in his series on The Song of Songs titled The Peasant Princess, I have been pondering if Driscoll is the Howard Stern of the Evangelical world.


  1. So, Mars Hill is essentially satellite radio?

  2. Chris,

    I never thought of that, but it may be.

  3. Let's examine our criticism. Does it have grace? Does it lead to repentance? Does it exhibit any of the fruits of the Spirit?

    Or does it jump alongside the devil and shoot another flaming arrow? I have made that error countless times, not worth it. I hope your pondering of Driscoll will end at the cross, where Jesus died for sinners such as you, I, and Driscoll.

    A.W. Tozer spoke concerning this matter

    "Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander,
    as well as all types of malicious behavior." Ephesians 4:31-32

    Dispositional sins are fully as injurious to the Christian cause
    as the more overt acts of wickedness. These sins are as many
    as the various facets of human nature. Just so there may be
    no misunderstanding, let us list a few of them: sensitiveness,
    irritability, churlishness, faultfinding, peevishness, temper,
    resentfulness, cruelty, uncharitable attitudes; and of course
    there are many more. These kill the spirit of the church and
    mar the witness of the church in the community. Many unsaved
    people have been turned away and embittered by manifestations
    of ugly dispositional flaws in the lives of the very people who
    were trying to win them.

    Unsaintly Saints are the tragedy of Christianity!

    "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
    goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." Gal. 5:22-23

  4. And yet, K.J. Dunn, the disturbing fact remains for many that Driscoll appears to use all sorts of topics, words and themes simply for their shock value. Whether that is his intent or not, even the secular world has noticed his penchant for what would seem to be less-than-holy speech and conduct.
