Mark Driscoll Worships Demons
Let me first say that I’m not out to ‘bash’ Mark, but he is the head of a very large church and he keeps posting these videos online that people send me, and I cannot help at the end of these videos thinking to myself, “Why the Sheol would anyone go listen to such ignorance and foolishness on a weekly basis.”
Some time back I wrote on Mark Driscoll as scholar and exegete after his ham-fisted abuse of Targum Neofiti in a talk we shall loosely describe as a sermon. My issue with this video was that it demonstrated a serious lack of critical thinking skills and (intentionally?) misrepresented the issue for apologetic purposes.
Then pastor Mark suggested Avatar is the most satanic film he has ever seen.
From this Mark stated that a demon began Mormonism, wrote the Twilight novels, and some demons authored other books for teens.
Well the demons are at it again. This time they’re trying to get you to do yoga… and wait for it… put on your surprise face… they created yoga as well!
I’m not sure where Mark got his conception of demons, but they sound like some erudite dudes. Let’s see: film maker? check? Novelist? Check? Religion maker? Check? Physical trainer? Check.
Producer, writer, spiritualist, and trainer… is there anything these awesome demons can’t do? Maybe they invented coffee, tea, homeopathy (just the evil kind that doesn’t work), push-ups (because you should only prostrate yourself before the Lord!), and Scrabble.
In Christian theology there is a saying “The God of the gaps.” By this it is meant that God is used to explain areas of scientific knowledge that are currently unexplained. Mark Driscoll has a demons of the gap. If he doesn’t like it or understand it you can make a pretty good guess where he thinks it might have come from. Can you imagine being around his house? “Dad, where does the water go when I flush the toilet?” “Demons, take it to hell honey.” “Dad, can you help me with my Algebra?” “Demons, created math honey to take your focus off of God.”
Think much about demons much ? Much too much, Mark, much too much…
“That’s trying to treat the name of Jesus like a little magic formula that you sprinkle over the demonic.”
“Master,” said John, “we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us.”“Do not stop him,” Jesus said, “for whoever is not against you is for you.”
“Yoga is a worship act…”
This is really getting so stupid… why am I not pressing stop on the video button. Obviously, this guy doesn’t even know what Yoga is, or has seen it practiced.
“Exercise that is ‘biblical'”
Now the stupid is actually starting to kill brain cells…
“Satan doesn’t care if you stretch as long as you go to hell…”
Mark claims to know a lot of what Satan thinks and cares about in these videos, but really, are there any theologians in the house? The atonement doesn’t work if you go to Yoga?
Yoga trumps the cross? Stretching trumps the cross?
Wow. So not only does this guy have a love affair with literate, erudite, intelligent, productive, creative demons, now he thinks they are so awesome that doing their Yoga will send you to hell. There’s little doubt: Mark worships demons.
