Now I don't know what to think.
Also, Husbands! Such schmucks, amirite?
Certainly Driscoll is abhorrent and his ultimate point here is no doubt, well, Calvinist in its thinking because Driscoll is a Calvinist and you can expect Calvinism from him because fucking Calvinism is right there on the label dumbass. So yeah. Driscoll = Calvinist. Which part do you not understand?
That said, taking his digs against some wives and pretending he said all wives is just being a dick for the sake of being a dick. You make critics of Mars Hill Church look like haters when you do this kind of infantile shit.
I suppose the answer to my complaint is: Paul Constant = Dick. It's right there on the label. Touche.
He says people misquote him and his teachings by suggesting he doesn't believe in female equality. But then he goes on and on about how women have to respect the husband and SUBMIT to him. If a wife disagrees, she should only express that politely and in private. He says nothing of the sort about the need of husbands to do the same for wives. He is concerned about the children not respecting the father if the wife doesn’t submit. He has no concern about the children disrespecting the mother based on the man’s behavior. It is all one way and the antithesis of equal. It's all about how women can ruin marriage and families by not submitting. Men, he suggests, should merely expect to be submitted to. No respect is expected of them, only for them. Women must give it, never expect to receive it.
Such sexist, hateful ideology. He is harmful. He is poison.
He probably also has a small penis.
But really you're right, "some" women obviously means just the women that Driscoll himself has deemed insufficiently servile. He was simply referring to all married women who don't self-identify as vaginas with housecleaning attachments.
Seriously, it ain't no good without pics.
Mars Hill Church and Mark Driscoll believe in the complete subjugation of women to men. So, you're right, he doesn't believe ALL women are like that, just the uppity ones.
Come on, water torture isn't that bad.

(This Washington, mind you. There are even bigger ones in the other Washington.)
What a douchebag.
intellectually impoverished, unoriginal, and a multitude of other icky things,
personality (the person thing is a bit of a stretch but I'm feeling generous).
I dont think of Driscoll as a Christian, and I say that as one. He drives a mustang. He dresses nice. He HAS A MUSTANG. Any church leader with a fancy car doesn't take what Jesus says about possessions very seriously. His hobbies are all about making himself better, and overpowering others; nothing in there doing the "helping other people" thing.
I went to his church a few times, the one downtown. I walked out after they started talking about how Christians are persecuted in Seattle. I was massively insulted by the flippant use of that very powerful word, and also by the complete ignorance it displayed of the actual suffering many actual souls are going through in this city. I have some awkward conversations because of my faith, but persecuted?!?! I have never EVER worried about being beaten up because of my faith. Gay folks, black folks, etc cant say the same.
My .02, Driscoll isnt a good Christian, doesn't have a soft, warm heart, and needs to get a grip and pray for real.
