Mark Driscoll Resigns From Mars Hill

Mark Driscoll, infamous for his impurity and irreverence has decided to step down. Blessedly the Lord is causing this man's empire (the very antithesis of what he stood for as an Emergent in the late 90's and early 2000's) to implode. 

Excerpts from RNS state:

“We concluded that Pastor Mark has, at times, been guilty of arrogance, responding to conflict with a quick temper and harsh speech, and leading the staff and elders in a domineering manner. While we believe Mark needs to continue to address these areas in his life and leadership, we do not believe him to be disqualified from pastoral ministry.” 

~ WRONG ANSWER. "At times"? No, that is his very character.

"“Pastor Mark has never been charged with any immorality, illegality or heresy. Most of the charges involved attitudes and behaviors reflected by a domineering style of leadership.”"

~WRONG: the way he has perverted Song of Solomon, talks about sex, and speaks about Christ IS immoral and impure.

"A front-page story in The New York Times on Aug. 23 had suggested that Driscoll’s empire was “imploding.”"

~WELL yeah, that's what I said a while ago. GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED.

Here's the continuing leadership problem at MH:

 "During Driscoll’s planned sabbatical, elders within his own church asked him to step down from all aspects of ministry. All nine elders who signed the letter resigned or were laid off."
