Mark Driscoll (A.K.A. the cussing pastor) is the Senior Pastor at Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Washington. Have I ever hear him cuss? No. But he does have a reputation for, at times, seriously lacking in tactfulness. Mark is known as a cutting edge Pastor who represents a conservative wing of today’s postmodern church movement. He is most recently famous for a public backlash against other postmodern leaders who have forsaken Biblical inerrancy and embraced liberal stands on issues such as egalitarianism and homosexuality.
The reason I am writing this post is to recommend his churches vodcast, which is a video version of podcasts. Once a week the most recent message video goes online and automatically transfers to my itunes. Like any Bible teacher, his views need to be listened to with discernment, but I just finished the second message in his 1 Corinthians series “Christians Gone Wild” and I must say that I have been quite impressed. He teaches with an “in your face” style that is refreshing and quite challenging. He is also not afraid to grapple with some very difficult issues. Take a look and let me know what you think!
DIRECTIONS: In itunes, go to the advanced option on the menubar and select, “subscribe to podcast.” At that point you can enter the address at the bottom of this post. Once a message has downloaded you can view it in the podcast link on the left menu bar of your itunes. CAUTION: This is only an option for people with high-speed internet. Dial-up users will require 8+ hours of download time per message, sorry.
