WHATCHU TALKIN BOUT WILLIS?

I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

Driscoll Knows How to Make His Point, Huh?


There is a strong drift toward the hard theological left. Some emergent types [want] to recast Jesus as a limp-wrist hippie in a dress with a lot of product in His hair, who drank decaf and made pithy Zen statements about life while shopping for the perfect pair of shoes. In Revelation, Jesus is a prize fighter with a tattoo down His leg, a sword in His hand and the commitment to make someone bleed. That is a guy I can worship. I cannot worship the hippie, diaper, halo Christ because I cannot worship a guy I can beat up. I fear some are
becoming more cultural than Christian, and without a big Jesus who has authority and hates sin as revealed in the Bible, we will have less and less Christians,
and more and more confused, spiritually self-righteous blogger critics of Christianity.
—Mark Driscoll (from Relevant Magazine)

Thats what im talking about...im tired of the Church conforming to the culture. Man i read nothing but theological bologna in the Christian Standard and it makes me wanna puke. I wish people would realize the REAL JESUS, like the one who cleansed the Temple, the one who has testicular fortitude. Thats right i said it

Testicular fortitude... nice. I would have just said that Jesus had balls (is that allowed on this blog?).

I definitely like Driscoll's refreshing bluntness. He's also pretty solid in surprisng ways = elder led, weekly communion, male leadership, etc. He's pushing the envelope - no doubt, but he knows his audience well. I wish he'd lose the Calvinism, but that's highly unlikeiy.
