Driscoll Insults a Country

Open mouth insert foot.

Some people get it when they do it, are sorry for it, apologize, learn from their mistakes, and move on.

Others are ignorant of their foot-in-mouth disease.

Driscoll is ignorant.

Here are only some of the things he said:

And instead of the apology that he owes to British Christians, here is his sorry attempt at damage control:

Someone please deliver us from this man and his ego.

Wow. This brings back so many memories. This is just the way the church leaders acted, in the group I once belonged to.

Sometimes it's hard, when sitting under the preaching of an overwhelming arrogance like this, to see what "stardom Christianity" is really all about. You're dazzled-- because that's what you're meant to be. It's all about a man on a platform, showing off to look good. Sometimes it takes getting burned by it to see it for what it is.

I suspect that's where the young people in this guy's church are right now. Dazzled. But they'll learn. It's sad, but they will.

Yeah, and it is really hard for those of us to watch what these young people are going through.

You wish that they would listen to you, that they would realize that we aren't speaking against this because we are jealous of Driscoll's popularity or coolness or great communication or teaching ability (puke icon here).

We've see this before. We've been through this kind of train wreck and everything that leads up to it. There is nothing but a horrible end in store for this situation. And we can't stop it.

And neither will we be able to say, "I told you so," on the other side because the spiritual carnage will be so overwhelming.

So we try to do what we can now to get as many as possible to jump off. And so many of them just laugh at us as they barrel on to their doom.

God help them.
