A group of Epicurean and Stoic philosophers began to dispute with him. Some of them asked, "What is this babbler trying to say?" Others remarked, "He seems to be advocating foreign gods." They said this because Paul was preaching the good news about Jesus and the resurrection.
Then they took him and brought him to a meeting of the Areopagus, where they said to him, "May we know what this new teaching is that you are presenting? You are bringing some strange ideas to our ears, and we want to know what they mean. (All the Athenians and the foreigners who lived there spent their time doing nothing but talking about and listening to the latest ideas.)
Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: "Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you."
...When they heard about the resurrection of the dead, some of them sneered, but others said, "We want to hear you again on this subject." At that, Paul left the Council. A few men became followers of Paul and believed. Among them was Dionysius, a member of the Areopagus, also a woman named Damaris, and a number of others.

Quick, stop being gay or you'll catch the aids.
Sick Tribal Jesus
Attends. Please explain. I'm not sure the ban you refer to exists. Although I'm sure the judgement does.
They want to make gay people miserable with their Jesus. They can't bear that anyone gay could be happy. So they want to add their special ingredient of shame and guilt. Well, guess what Mars Hill? Come and give your speeches. It's not something we haven't heard a million times before. If it makes you feel superior and holy than fuck you.
In my humble estimation (and I've worked for Lifelong for several years), this statement shows they know little to nothing of the issues they speak of, and they are probably just using this whole thing as a slimy propaganda/culture.war salvo. The whiff of "anti-gay" is all over this.
Fuck off, "Mars Hill". You can't even "interpret" the Bible correctly.
On the other hand, if Mars Hill can provide legions of volunteers to actually staff the kitchen and take food to the sick and homebound that Lifelong serves, that might go a ways to breaking down the homophobe and anti-gay barriers MH has. This could totally blow back in the MH leaders' faces. Lifelong has no place for "ministering", that's for sure.
Time will tell.
I still feel the rock throwing was false flag.
They're not happy he's gay you fucking idiot.
So, I ask for the zillionth time, if Supergenius tattoo is a part of Mars Hill, why do they get so much money from Wildrose-frequenting customers? They hate the gay, they really don't need Cap Hill's business.
Mark Driscoll is about as obvious a closet case as there ever was. Just like Ted Haggard (hiding behind his beard wife & five kids) & George "Lifting My Luggage" Rekers before him, Driscoll incessantly rails against "the gays" & "the gay agenda".
To repeat: No straight man secure in his own sexuality - oddball preacher or not - feels such a need to expend endlessly energy attacking THE GAYS. It is like the old Nazi trick of shooting one of your own to prove you're not one of them.
Is there a smoking gun to prove this; i.e., that Driscoll is secretly gay himself? ...just wait, i don't think it's a coincidence that Mars Hill employs a bunch of cute young guys. How about it Mark? Who have you seduced on your male-only "spiritual retreats"?
Who will be the first to come forward & talk about what this freaky self-promoter does behind closed doors? ...awaiting the inevitable day when Mark's purse falls out of the closet...
"The Areopagus, like most city-state institutions, continued to function in Roman times, and it was then that the Apostle Paul delivered his famous speech about the identity of "the Unknown God." According to the biblical account (Acts 17):
