Jeremiah ch.5 v 26 reads thus, “For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares;they set a trap, they catch men. Jeremiah further reads in verse 30 of the same chapter, “A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land;….”
The names of Mark Driscoll and Ed Young should be synonymous with profanity and irreverence. In fact, for these two men (and others of their ilk ), reverence is irrelevant and purity is pre-modern (as opposed to post-modern), as they are driven to “contextualise” the Gospel i.e make it appear “cool” and “trendy” and not “counter-cultural.” Mr.Driscoll is perhaps the worst offender due to his obsession with “filthiness and foolish talking” (see Ephesians ch.5 v 4) .
These “Pastors” are exploiting the world’s obsession with sex to draw the crowds and gain “converts” by giving them what they want e.g. sex-talk (Mark Driscoll), gimmicks involving sex (e.g.Ed Young’s Sexperiment),and a dirty book about marriage (Mark Driscoll).
These Pastors may or may not know that their methods bear a striking resemblance to the proselytising activities of a cult known as The Church of God (The Family). They engaged in “flirty fishing” to gain converts. Now, in Driscoll and Co. we have the “Christian” version of flirty fishing !!!!
