There seems to be a smell coming from this coalition and it is emanating from the area of Mark Driscoll. I know that there are many who support Mark and his filthiness, and that is O.K., that is their prerogative, but it is also the prerogative of others to warn the “unsuspecting” away from the filth. It also says much about those who associate with the man. What does the purity and cleanliness of the Gospel have to do with filth, can both filth and living water come from the same well or Gospel Coalition? The Gospel has been wrapped in many different outfits in the past by those who would try and make it into something other than what it is. Is this really that hard for people to see? This is the obvious stuff. There is no deception here, this is blatant rebellion, and accepted by the others attending this “coalition.” I find it hard to believe that these other “preachers” are not picking up the smell. This truly is the end times.
The definition of coalition:
- An organization of people (or countries) involved in a pact or treaty.
- The state of being combined into one body.
- The union of diverse things into one body or form or group; the growing together of parts.
Maybe we need to look closer at the definition to try and get an understanding of what is going on in the minds of those involved. Could it be that it really is the “union of diverse things.” So much is being said about unity these day; look at those giving the invocation at the inauguration of Obama. The whole pot is getting stirred up together, why, no one will be able to tell the difference, and really I am beginning to think that no one really even cares. Yet, all these preachers will come away preaching the Gospel, and maybe shaking their foot because of something they stepped in. Seriously, I think you have to be spiritually numb not to pick up on this one. Are we suppose to take them serious?
Let the Mark Driscoll supporters come, and I know they will, just don’t step on the carpet.
I also find it amusing that Mark is the only one in the line-up that is not smiling, could this be a “tell?”
