Bam!! Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, just kinda opened a big can of whup ass on the American mainline church denominations on his personal blog. I have to say that I kinda get what he’s saying but in the end I have to reject it. I don’t reject it because it’s a really dumb rant. I reject it because it’s simply not manly enough. I sorta hear what Driscoll is getting at, but he simply lacks the volume and bravado that I need from a pastor in order to fully accept what’s being said. It gets back to the details really. If only his truck was a ’73 Ford, a much more studly year and make than his girly ’78 Chevy. If only he would have headbutted his son rather than taking his more passive approach with the “knuckle-to-knuckle handshake”. If our young reformed believers are really taking thier faith seriously, can’t they take a little headbutt every once in a while? Also, that picture he uses of Jesus on this post almost looks like a girl! What’s up with that, Driscoll? Where’s the Jesus that’s leaning out of a window of a monster truck going 90 MPH firing an assault rifle into the air and screaming “WoooHoooo!!”?
Until Mark Driscoll can step it up and bring us the “shock and awe” that I know is deep down inside of his studly soul, I’m gonna have to wait it out while I listen to my Ted Nugent records.
