Ur Video: Mark Driscoll says "God Hates You"
Does the church need more fire and brimstone preaching today?
This clip of a sermon by Mark Driscoll has been getting a lot of play. Never mistaken for being soft or indirect, Driscoll shares his concern that too many people are editing God by picking which of his attributes they like and which they'd prefer to discard. "I love you," he says, "and I have to tell you the truth." The real fireworks begin at the 4:30 mark on the video.
It appears the original clip posted by Mars Hill was pulled and replaced by a clip from the same sermon offering more context for Driscoll's statement. You can watch that video about the wrath of God here.
What do you make of Driscoll's approach? Do we need more fire and brimstone preaching today?
