And finally…

Mark Driscoll: if you happen to be reading these posts late night or whenever, I encourage you to resign. If you haven’t figured it out yet, it’s completely gotten away from you. Sooner or later, it will all come crashing down, big time. Your excruciatingly public projections of your significant sexual obsessions and problems has just gotten really old. Sooner or later, you might be in your 50s or 60s, but you will flame out – the writing is so on the wall. Reading this http://pastormark.tv/2012/01/31/10-refle… gives me a sense maybe you have some glimmers of self awareness. You are way too hardened up and it’s time to ease out. You should drop out, and start over doing something that sounds good, maybe some deep sea fishing, cross country motorcycling, body building, running a gym or machine shop – I mean this seriously. You are no pastor. Man up, it’s over, get out. You’re just running a program of enslavement lite.

Other church leaders (and I’m not talking about Mars Hill, I’m talking about all the other Christians throughout the area): It is an embarrassment to the Church generally that the biggest entity to confront Driscoll is The Stranger. Come on, there’s thousands of churches, several Christian universities, even a couple of divinity schools for God’s sake – it’s time. Woman and man up and get rid of this guy. No more hand wringing.

Sooner or later, it will all come crashing down, big time. Your excrutiatingly public working out of whatever sexual obsessions or problems you have (and yes, you really do have them if you think about sex as much as you talk about it) is ridiculous. This will catch up with you ultimately - you may be in your 50s or 60s, but it will happen.

Sooner or later, it will all come crashing down, big time. Your overwrought, extremely public playing out of whatever sexual problems and obsessions you have will catch up with you sooner or later - maybe best to ease out quietly and deal with those issues in a more humble and effective fashion.

My last comment was a bit tongue in cheek. This is more from the heart.

I have been a Christian for most of my life, but have taken a lot of twists and turns (born again; Young Life; Campus Crusade;divinity school; the evangelical world; and for the last while a sense that somehow that world bears little relationship to the larger Spirit of God through now and through time). As I get older it feels ironically and quite sadly that one of the main impediments to people's experience of and belief in God is the Church itself, in all its forms. For me, Christian culture is a human construct that can't escape itself. Whether it's fundamentalist, Catholic, evangelical, liberal, mainline, whatever, at the end of the day, churches have pretty heavy normative behavior, language, expectations, etc. Just try being a fundamentalist at an "open and affirming" church - there's no escaping it.

That being said, Mark Driscoll crossed the far too long ago.

At least Mars Hill and The Stranger have one thing in common: an unhealthy obsession with sex.

What is that thing they taught in high school civics - that at the ends of any spectrum there is usually some sort of weird connection of the extremes?
