Mark Driscoll is an alright guy. Or at least he seems like he’s an alright guy. According to his Wikipedia page, he was born in North Dakota, a state that I honestly can’t say anything bad about. Of course, I can’t say anything good about it either. In fact, I can’t really say anything about it besides that Mark Driscoll was born there. Mark Driscoll is also a Christian and he is the “Preaching Pastor” of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, which is a place I can say all kinds of good things about.
So thats really all you need to know about Mark Driscoll. But why did I decide to start a blog about the man? Really for one reason only. Because as a Roman Catholic who has friends who attend the Church, I can’t stand to listen to how he misrepresents my Church. His people at Mars Hill deserve a pastor who is going to take seriously what the largest Christian Church in the world believes, not ridicule them and misrepresent them with straw man arguments.
So here is what I plan to do. I plan to go through all content that Pastor Driscoll has written or said about the Catholic Church and explain why he has misrepresented it. I will then attempt to explain all the doctrines with the seriousness that they deserve (and maybe I’ll even point out a thing or two he says that I like!). I do not wish to do this all alone, and hope I can convince a few of my friends to join me.
I’d like to make a special invitation to any Mars Hill Church members to comment and ask questions about this site. I hope to answer any questions you may have about the Church that Jesus Christ himself started. I love Jesus Christ, I love that he gave me a Church that gave me so much, and I don’t want to hog it all for myself. There is plenty here for everybody, and I pray for the day when we will all be united in truth, worship, and action that our Lord wants from us.
God Bless you all, and enjoy!
