Mark Driscolls sermons are mostly too racy to post on GodTube, the evangelical Christian family friendly video-posting Web site. With titles like Biblical Oral Sex and Pleasuring Your Spouse, his clips do not stand a chance against the sites content filters. No matter: YouTube is where Driscoll, the pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, would rather be. Unsuspecting sinners who type in popular keywords may suddenly find themselves face to face with a husky-voiced preacher in a black skateboarders jacket and skull T-shirt. An Under 17 Requires Adult Permission warning flashes before the video cuts to evening services at Mars Hill, where an anonymous audience member has just text-messaged a question to the screen onstage: Pastor Mark, is masturbation a valid form of birth control?

marvel ye that, having once rebelled, protestantism veereth into all manner of perversion?
I’m familiar with Driscoll. He is far from perverted. Frank at times, certainly, but that is the worst that can be said about him.
TV evangelists. He told me so this morning.
I believe it's generally 100% effective.
Note his answer (which was not included in the excerpt) - no.
Who Would Jesus Smack Down?
Everybody gets smacked. Some just a lot harder than others. And for still others it’s more like a tag between teamates at a WWE event. ;)
Ahh. Well, then there's the correct definition of "perverse" to consider.
Depends on what you’re masturbating into.
Seriously, folks, I think there’s an answer on that exact point in the Gospels.
Lol, I’m still laughing.
I was pre-destined to reject Calvinism. But when the Master knocks, I’ll open the door anytime.
This is one CRUDE church.
Yeah. This one:
Next Pastor Mark is warning them about lust and exalting the confines of marriage, one hand jammed in his jeans pocket while the other waves his Bible.
His style turns some people off. His teaching, however, is unquestionably orthodox.
Ezekiel and Hosea and Song of Solomon offend your dainty sensibilities too.
Who wants Jack Daniel's?
Heck... I DO ;-)
No, but Driscol is no Christian.
He's crude and need of attention. I wouldn't be caught dead in his church or near someone like that. He gives Christianity a foul name.
Driscoll doesnt miss a beat:
I had one guy quote Ecclesiastes 9:10, which says, Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.
The audience bursts out laughing.
Next Pastor Mark is warning them about lust and exalting the confines of marriage, one hand jammed in his jeans pocket while the other waves his Bible. Even the skeptical viewer must admit that whatever Driscolls opinion of certain recreational activities, he has the coolest style and foulest mouth of any preacher youve ever seen.”
His foul mouth and crudness makes him the kind of person Christ would “smack down”. He is disgusting.
I'm sure you came to that conclusion after extensive study. Especially since you couldn't be bothered to spell his name correctly.
He's crude and need of attention.
Being "crude" is hardly a disqualifier. Re-read Ezekiel 20, and get back to me about Driscoll's alleged "crude"ness.
