IF YOU LIVE IN SEATTLE, STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING. GO TO THIS CHURCH AND TELL ME STORIES.
Personally, I don’t get Calvinism. Why would anyone join a religion that believes you’re either predetermined for heaven or hell, there’s nothing you can do to change that, but you STILL need to adhere to rigorous puritanical
Still, I’d go to this guy’s sermon’s just to see him lay the smackdown on modern Christian culture. As you can see, this guy owns:
The mainstream church, Driscoll has written, has transformed Jesus into “a Richard Simmons, hippie, queer Christ,” a “neutered and limp-wristed popular Sky Fairy of pop culture that . . . would never talk about sin or send anyone to hell.”.
Driscoll disdains the prohibitions of traditional evangelical Christianity. Taboos on alcohol, smoking, swearing and violent movies have done much to shape American Protestant culture – a culture that he has called the domain of “chicks and some chickified dudes with limp wrists.”
And my favorite:
Driscoll is adamantly not the “weepy worship dude” he associates with liberal and mainstream evangelical churches, “singing prom songs to a Jesus who is presented as a wuss who took a beating and spent a lot of time putting product in his long hair.
There’s just something appealing about someone called “the cussing pastor”. I wonder if you’re allowed to bring popcorn? If they say anything you could just say it was “predetermined”.
