Mark Driscoll, while being hammered by Baptists Press for his use of "Vulgarity" was shown on CNN with DL Hughley. The segment is short, and Mark doesn't get to share as much about Christ as I'm sure he would have liked. but he is able to 1. Share the importance of sex within marriage 2. Tell DL that pornography is not God honoring 3. Explain how and why he discusses sex with his congregants 4. Use scripture to answer Hughley's question 5. Get the chance to respond to Ingrid's comment on Driscoll 6. Begin to explain the Gopsel to DL
While Mark's response to DL's last question could have been expounded more than "Dig Jesus" I think that is because of time constraints. I do wonder how much CNN edited the video for time, and what else Mark shared with DL. I cant help but think at the end of the day DL walked away with a new respect for Driscoll and his church.
I live and work at HoneyRock camp in Three Lakes, WI where I am a part of an experiential learning program through Wheaton College. I love spending time with my beautiful wife Courtney.I am passionate about theology and sharing the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. This blog is to reflect upon my learning experiences within the framework of Christianity, Culture and life, and how the three relate to one another.
