Wow, that's a disturbing read--does anyone think Jesus would domineer and brow-beat people like that? What should anyone expect to find at Mars Hill--grace, compassion, understanding, personal meaning, or humanness--but is that for 'wusses'? The more I read and watch Driscoll's sermons, the more I see a focus on "doctrine", that is simply one perspective on scripture. Church has become like a passive TV show, where people sit, get "fed" by doctrine, and believe it will somehow work its way into their lives. It certainly does have its effect--it makes people passive, gullible, indoctrinated, and starved of their souls--the very place God wants to touch us. Don't check out at the door of a church--go where you'll engage your heart and mind, where people listen as much as talk. God doesn't expect the conversation to be one-way.
