This video clip was posted on Mark Driscoll’s blog and it’s actually pretty funny…for all the wrong reasons. This may be a nitpick on my part (and I am a musician so cut me some slack) you gotta give it up to whoever came up with the music. It’s such a beautifully bad version of a drunk Metallica cover band…awesome. And it just gets worse…..or….i mean if you are a bad-ass warrior for Jesus….it gets totally more kick ass! In addition to the music, it’s interesting that, as Bill Hybells pointed out, judging by this video clip, women are strangely not welcome in the effort to plant churches (especially if you are a tambourine player). Judging by Driscoll’s attitude towards women in this video, they seem to only be side notes in the “war” of church planting. And can someone please clue me in on how having sex with your wife “at least once a day” is in any way relevant to being a church planter? Bizarre. I thought only Wednesday night was the night to make love? (Conditions are perfect…..) And is it me or is repeatedly referencing a “body count” while walking amongst the graves of fallen soldiers a little thoughtless?
I guess if they can get past the machismo, bad music, and the non-stop war metaphors (soldier, body count, war, boot camp, battle, hold your ground, fight, etc…), then this video will work wonders for all the wimpy chair-folding, church planting chumps out there. 😉
