Mark Driscoll gets some added criticism

Apparently Driscoll got in a bit of hot water over this video. Mostly, it was his "man" talk and his apparent dismissal of women in ministry. What do you think?

I didn't mind Driscoll's comments... they didn't seem dismissive of women at all. What I did sense was a call for men to step up to the plate and be men and be leaders. I'm preaching through 1 and 2 Timothy right now and we need faithful men. Besides, the debate is still on in the church as to the role of women in ministry. From what Driscoll said, I couldn't have made a call as to his beliefs in that area. But since when have we silenced people for a more conservative interpretation in this area anyway? Are they heretics now, people who don't have a voice? There is a terrible lack of strong men with backbone these days. Let's get it right. J Adams

I thought it was a great video. Sounds like someone was being a little too PC and was afraid to distribute the CDs. Too bad they aren't as discerning with bad doctrine!

I agree with both comments. I also hope Driscoll and his team are reimbursed(I think this is the correct spelling) for the expense of producing the video. I also think that those who accuse Driscoll of demeaning women in this particular case should heed I Cor 13:5,where Paul tells us that love thinks no evil.

Driscoll's words ring true- But are we too late?

I am not familiar with either Mark Driscoll or Bill Hybel.

I would like to know how appearently one criticism from Mr. Bill Hybels can change the course of an entire convention.

Perhaps I don't have the complete story.

I thought the final edited version of the video was well thought out. Good, strong message with plenty of conviction.

Mark didn't call for the dismissal of women from the ministry. Not sure what that is about. Can someone explain?

Getting this on YouTube was ingenious. Good use of internet distribution while the convention people figure out what they want to do.

But in the long run, I am hoping this controversy doesn't place this message into the "good for ratings and entertainment" category.

We are getting into more serious times when God's chosen will be called to stand up. Mark seems frustrated, and he should. We all should.
