Exposing Mark Driscoll
Mark Driscoll is a Calvinist and like others he teaches a license to sin! He does this various ways and seemingly pleases his professing Christian audience as it is done! How does Mark Driscoll do it? One of the ways is he maintains that the Prodigal in Jesus’ teaching (Luke 15:11-32) always remained saved, even though he strayed into wild living, which included sexual immorality with prostitutes! Dan Corner exposed his heretical views during a radio debate they had together. Because Mark Driscoll teaches once saved always saved, he must (like all other such teachers) declare such a false grace message to be consistent. By teaching the prodigal remain saved while in sexual sin, he indirectly taught there are sexually immoral Christians, which is grossly contradictory to the Scriptures. The clearest passages which say there is no such thing as a sexually immoral Christian are 1 Cor. 6:9,10; Rev. 21:8; Gal. 5:19-21; etc., but once saved always saved teachers must misinterpret them to allow for such under Calvinism. Hence, the Calvinists will always make such VILE allowances for backsliders. The saddest part of the whole message he proclaims is, he is assuring backslidden people who were once saved that they do NOT have to repent for salvation sake since he is telling them they never lost it and will never lose it under any circumstances.
Driscoll’s Blasphemy Exposed
The shocking way Mark Driscoll blasphemes the Lord Jesus is most disturbing. He is open and bold in his insults and sacrilege. How could any God fearing person just sit back and listen to such talk without being totally repulsed is beyond me! That implies some idea of the spirituality of his following. Folks, that is the precious and sinless Lord Jesus, who is also God in the flesh who he is blaspheming. The Lord of Glory is the one who is getting blasphemed! Yet Mark Driscoll’s heart and his doctrine allow for such wickedness. His supporters are sharing in his bad “fruit”! Mark Driscoll was already exposed by Dan Corner as a false teacher and now his behavior (according to Jude) is not out of the norm for the grace changers, which he is part of. Mark Driscoll is Biblically disqualified over his doctrine and ungodly character (Titus 1:6-9; 1 Tim. 3:1-12). In spite of this nothing changes in our apostate day. His popularity and message aren’t hurt! The harm he is doing to SOULS is beyond measure, but because his influence is so great it has to be vast! When will church people learn that popularity is not a sign of soundness. Though Driscoll might have charisma in the eyes of some, he is a terrible spiritual failure to the well versed Christians.
