    Blight? Having poor judgement on methods and losing sight of priorities is a natural consequence of being a flawed human tasked with a calling such as pastoring. As the grandson of a pastor, I understand what it is to know the man behind the pulpit and seeing him stumble with the load at times. It is a heavy charge and we as his family had to bear the burden at times too.

    I never heard him pervert the Gospel like Bell, Osteen, Dollar, etc. He has been deferential to Jesus throughout the years. There are years’ worth of sermons on the website and you will not find another idol in place of Jesus in any one of them. Unorthodox? Yes. Controversial? For some, yes. Doctrine, style and methods will always be debated. Lapses in judgement are bigger and louder when you’re center stage.

    He will indeed stand before God and give an accounting, but so will the stone throwers and busybodies, whose deeds will pale in comparison to his, even counting his foul-ups. Those who have no ministry to mind will be busy attacking him, while digging their own graves, and that is just as sad as the original situation.

    It’s possible and you could argue evident he got his priorities messed up and got careless. This is exactly why the bible shows us the unvarnished truth of its characters. God works through flawed vessels regardless of failures. There are no heroes to be found but God Himself.

    Yes you missed something. He hired a firm to help publicize the book (not uncommon), but he was careless and did not check into which methods they implemented to help the book get out there. Turns out, this firm used shady tactics to increase the book’s ratings.

    Maybe this incident was an early indication as to the kinds of threats they would be getting. If they’ve had to move three times, then that’s taking measures. He says he was not happy with the idea, but trying to preserve some kind of normalcy for your children through a tough time I can understand.

    Lastly I have a hard time believing that the people he offended in his church are now dedicating their lives to taking revenge with violence. These are crimes of opportunity from people who are joining the “hate Mark Driscoll” bandwagon that has come as a result of the media circus that has formed around this issue by other opportunists in the media.

    Normal, sane, socially functional people would settle differences and resolve these issues with communication and understanding that is directed towards reconciliation and healing. People who have been directly affected by this situation would preferably be getting counseling and addressing the issue through the appropriate accountability channels and then moving on, possibly to another church, etc. Not airing their dirty laundry out to whoever wants a juicy headline, and definitely not throwing rocks, spreading rusty nails, or phoning in threats. Scumbags do that.

    C’mon, it’s not necessarily political correctness. It appears to be consistency with their values, like a Christian baker not wanting to bake a cake for a homosexual couple’s wedding if the baker opposes homosexuality. We don’t want them shouted down for sticking to their principles at a significant cost to them, do we? So why shout down CVS for doing the same? Maybe they’ll be doing the same for alcohol to, in due time. So what? Stumble up to the 7-Eleven to booze up, and you’ll be fine and happy. Let’s be consistency in this idea of choice and people will embrace the idea of freedom.

    The sheer ignorance of comments from patriots at every article with the word “drone” in it is astounding. The technology itself is not the problem. In fact, it has great potential to help in many aspects of modern life. It’s the people that are entrusted with the technology that are the problem. Basically we have a lack of understanding on the one side, and lack of integrity on the other side.

    So let me propose a strictly rhetorical argument here. If someone were to walk up to him and stab him dead, is he dead when the stabber thinks he’s dead? Or maybe when the coroner gets to the scene and declare him dead? How does that one work?

    If the media had any guts they would ask the President why someone who thinks we have a “liberal democracy” instead of a constitutional republic should represent us at the U.N.

    It seems that way initially, but when you study the scriptures you will find that Jesus had no human control of many of the events in his life and death that were predicted in Jeremiah, Isaiah, etc. Like being spit on, beaten, crucified. There are many more examples of this.

    Proverbs 26:25-27 (New International Version)

    25 Though their speech is charming, do not believe them,
    for seven abominations fill their hearts.
    26 Their malice may be concealed by deception,
    but their wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
    27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it;
    if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them.

    Stood next to her at Orlando airport the other day and I wanted to recommend she get another makeover like the one she got last year so she wouldn’t look nearly as repulsive.

    We gotta be careful with that one. Looney libs might want to argue that they only survived because he only had 10 shots, because of course that 11th shot was the one that was going to do the trick.

    Look, liberal humanist. To Christians the word of God is not a dying fad. It is more alive than you are and when it condemns something it does so because it rebels against God’s established order. And He’s not a politician to change His mind either.

    That’s my alma mater! It must be one of the newer dorms, which are quite nice. I hope it doesn’t blow up. If they’re evacuating the whole dorm that’s going to be at least 300 students. Fortunately, if there is one thing UCF has is buildings. We joked back then that UCF stands for Under Construction Forever, so there’s plenty of real estate there.

    He must have snuck in an “assault rifle” quite stealthily. Those dorms are well lit 24/7. I wonder what his major was and how the “IED” came to be.

    Right on, Colion! I particularly liked his video on gun store employees. Look it up and you’ll agree. Looking forward to seeing what he’ll do with the NRA.

    Anybody seen what the meteorite at the corner of the kaaba looks like? Check it out and judge for yourself.

    Look it up if you want more pictures and info. This is what they walk around and worship during the hadj (pilgrimage to Mecca).

    At the risk of excessively mincing the humor, what’s funny is her expression and the quickness of the whole event. What’s not funny is hitting her head. Also not funny is everything else that many women go through when they’re pregnant. I’m glad my wife hasn’t passed out like this, but this pregnancy has not been fun for her at all.

    I thought the same thing. A retreat to gradualism to achieve long-term radical objectives.

    I’ve struggled with this myself. I recently came to realize that my gun safe had become a sort of altar that I was in awe of every time I opened it. Pondering on it I came to the conclusion that there are many conservatives who are “nominal Christians” and put just as much, if not more, faith in their own abilities and tools than on God, and how close I was to being one of them. As much as I have loved going to the gun show and “gearing up”, I have become increasingly uncomfortable seeing the extreme fascination and flat out idolatrous relationship many good Americans have come to have with their guns, almost as an article of the “conservative faith”. I still love taking my Glock and AR out to the range and carrying, etc. , but I have to heart-check myself regularly to make sure they have not become my counterfeit gods again.

    For Christians, where you put your money and time a reflection of your heart. I think a good test is seeing if your guns are worth more than a year’s tithes. When I realized that, I started selling some gear. Had to part with a few toys I really enjoyed. If you drill dry-fires and holster draws more often than you pick up your bible at home, time for a heart check.

    They’ll just replace her with another virus. The conga line of commies just dances right on. After doing plenty of damage to the country at the administration and seeing the administration’s popularity drop, they move on to academia where they can continue to slowly destroy the country by infecting young, impressionable minds with their repackaged communism presented as ecology or social justice.

    I hear the guillotine is quick and 100% successful, if done right.

    Yes, I was just reading about McChrystal the other day. Too bad our heroes have to put their butts on the line twice to defend our freedoms. They’re at risk in the battlefield, then at risk at home when speaking out against becoming political tools.

    I’m torn about the book coming out in September. I’m naturally curious to get a first-hand account of what happened, but his fellow warriors seem to be devastated that he was eager to write the book, for whatever reason. They are probably interested in keeping the way of the silent warrior intact and to avoid politicizing what they do, more than they are concerned about secrets spilling out, because he probably knows a thing or two about OPSEC.

    I’m interested in the appropriate amount of sanitation necessary to protect military sensitive information. It seemed initially that he did that to the satisfaction of his discretion, but maybe not necessarily to the satisfaction of the chain of command, so from that perspective I wish he would have had the book reviewed by the Pentagon. But maybe he recognized the risk of political sanitation taking place, and that’s why he took the chance to go without official review.
