    And here I am wondering how I’m gonna pay medical bills. Guess he’d refer to me as a “broke-ass dad” too. Scum

  2. Em says:

    Well well
    Don’t think God approves og what’s coming out of Driscolls mouth….
    My reading schedule had me in the first chapter of Nahum this AM…. I dont think today’s “Christian” appreciates what an absolute Holy God is. ..
    CK, you are in my prayers always…. You, Michael and some others here also are going through real testing……
    God keeo

    Back when James Duncan was in court with Perry Noble, email exchanged between Noble and Driscoll revealed that Driscoll advised Noble to use this against Duncan. There was no case that Newspring could possibly win, and Driscoll didn’t even pretend that was the point. His entire advice was to keep Duncan wrapped up in court until, financially, he could no longer continue. This was about 2008 or 2009.

    CK,

    Consider it a badge of honor…and we’re praying God will meet all your needs…

  5. Michael says:

    Josh,

    I remember that now…and I remember where Driscoll learned the system…

  6. Steve says:

    I read online that Driscoll was a founding member of the gospel coalition. Did he get removed from that org?. I always felt they were fairly decent from a reformed perspective but if Driscoll is any way associated with them now or getting any royalties from them, I’ll think twice.

  7. Pineapple Head says:

    I once was on staff with a pastor who was so competitive, he never knew when to turn if off. Every life situation was about someone winning and someone losing. Male, female, young, old, it didn’t matter. He was constantly gaming whatever came into his life, even though such an aggressive approach to life began to destroy many of his relationships. To me, it was a mark of great immaturity.

  8. Michael says:

    Steve,

    Driscoll was a founder of Acts 29.
    TGC has cut him loose…

  9. Michael says:

    PH,

    It’s immaturity…and occasionally sociopathy…

  10. josh hamrick says:

    A29 cut him loos too. Replaced with Matt Chandler.

  11. Pineapple Head says:

    Yes, Michael, totally agree on the sociopathy. One clue that it’s more than immaturity is a lack of regret or repentance. The person who keeps doing the same thing over and over again, without any reflection or reconciliation reveals the sickness runs deep. It’s sad…and its dangerous.

  12. richard says:

    do you think he really has that much moola ?
    even if it’s a quarter of that, his disposable savings is most likely more than 80% of pastors worldwide, and more importantly, contrary to instructions given to christians by Jesus Himself.

  13. Michael says:

    Richard,

    That’s just one fund…my guess is that the benevolence fund is smaller…

  14. CM says:

    At the rate Driscoll is going, he will cross the _wrong_ person. And end up disappearing and having his body dissolved like what happened in Breaking Bad.

  15. Captain Kevin says:

    Thank you, Em and Michael.

  16. Em says:

    Sociopath pastors? Beyond sad AND very dangerous for the Church! ! !
    Most religions are mam made and dangerous, but The Faith construsted in The Book is uplifting and constructive …. IMHO

  17. WenatcheeTheHatchet says:

    well … if the fund exists someone learned the worldliest possible lesson from being a named defendant in a civil RICO suit

  18. Jlo says:

    What a piece of trash.

  19. The New Victor says:

    CM, what’s up with advocating or wishing for death and murder, yet again? Driscoll, the SBC like Gotham City by ninja assassins (which implies SBC laity, the other thread), Trumpsters (previous threads that I can remember)…

    What I don’t get is this. If you are a born again believer, even if you fell, this music would grieve your spirit.

  21. UnCCed says:

    I don’t mean to sound like a Pharisee praying “thanks for not making me that guy,” but I can’t imagine how one could turn-out like Mark Driscoll.
    I could nothing but kick puppies for the rest of my life and not be nearly as convicted as I would think he should be.
    At least with the fallen ones (Coy) it makes sense, but to keep studying, teaching, etc, AND be a monster, that’s a spirit I’ve never met!
    I impact about 10 people on a regular basis and my convictions would make you laugh.
    I just don’t get it.

  22. CM says:

    TNV,

    Think of the Assyrians and Israel. Maybe the destruction of the SBC as an organization (and American Christianity) is the _only_ way to get the point across.

    I am sure the ancient Israelis expressed the same sentiment as you when the various prophets warned them similarly. I bet you thought they were too harsh and “inflammatory” as well.

  23. CM says:

    TNV,

    Oh, and I am sure there were a number of faithful Israelites who served God faithfully and were no part of the corrupt system at the time. Yet the hammer of the Assyrians still fell on them. Something amount sins of omission come to mind as well. Those SBC laity who don’t want to rock the boat, not make waves, etc.

  24. justme says:

    The corrupt American church is why we’re being judged. While Kenny Copeland gathered his millions the USA went gay. While the wolves grew rich, and the sheep enabled them to, the country went transgender.

  25. Muff Potter says:

    Why do people follow men like this?
    What’s the draw?

  26. Michael says:

    That wasn’t bad music…a little blues, a little funk…not bad at all…

  27. josh hamrick says:

    “What I don’t get is this. If you are a born again believer, even if you fell, this music would grieve your spirit.”

    *trying not to laugh*

    Yes, amatuer jazz / blues music is very grieving to the spirit.

    This is the complaint against Bob Coy, and we wonder what is wrong with the American Church.

  28. Michael says:

    Josh and I were typing at the same time…

  29. JD says:

    That band sucks worse than any churchyanity “worship”. Coy reminds me of the prodigal feeding with the pigs.

  30. JD says:

    My prayer is that Bob like the prodigal will come to his senses.
    Driscoll on the other hand seems to be a personification of evil. Exorcism anyone?
