Mark Driscoll Needs a Long, Long Sabbatical

October 14, 2011

The Mark Driscoll train is clearly going off of the crazy rails. He obviously needs a very long break. I think maybe a Jubilee for Mark would be a nice biblical solution–as in he goes away for a Jubilee period of time. You pick: either 49 years or 50 years. I don’t really care as long as he goes away, rests up, doesn’t speak or write, and leaves everyone alone for that long.

We already knew that Mark Driscoll was kind of a delusional pervert.

He claimed to see visions of a floating TV where he would see disturbing sexual images:

And sometimes I see things too. I see things too. I’ve seen women raped. I’ve seen children molested. I’ve seen people abused. I’ve seen people beaten. I’ve seen horrible things done. Horrible things done. I’ve seen children dedicated in occultic groups and demons come upon them as an infant by invitation. And I wasn’t present for any of it, but I’ve seen it visibly.

And just as disturbing from his marriage ‘counseling’ sessions:

There was one woman I dealt with, she’d never told her husband that she had committed adultery on him early in the relationship. I said, “You know,” (she’s sitting there with her husband) I said, “You know, I think the root of all this, I think Satan has a foothold in your life ’cause you’ve never told your husband about that really tall blond guy that you met at the bar, and then you went back to the hotel, and you laid on your back, and you undressed yourself, and he climbed on top of you, and you had sex with him, and snuggled up with him for a while, and deep down in your heart, even though you had just met him, you desired him because secretly he is the fantasy body type.” I said, “You remember that place: it was that cheap hotel with that certain colored bedspread. You did it, you had sex with the light on because you weren’t ashamed and you wanted him to see you, and you wanted to see him.” She was just looking at me like [throws hands in air]. I said, “You know, it was about ten years ago?”

I see everything [makes TV square with hands].

I’m convinced that if Mark were to have a psychological evaluation they would medicate him and put him away as a narcissistic, delusional person (he speaks ‘for’ god and sees disturbing rape and sexual visions = scary-time!).

Unfortunately, Mark’s perversions do not stop at his so called ‘visions’: from his booklet Porn-Again Christian: A Frank Discussion on Pornography & Masturbation for God’s Men:

First, masturbation can be a form of homosexuality because it is a sexual act that does not involve a woman. If a man were to masturbate while engaged in other forms of sexual intimacy with his wife then he would not be doing so in a homosexual way. However, any man who does so without his wife in the room is bordering on homosexuality activity, particularly if he’s watching himself in a mirror and being turned on by his own male body.

Uh… er… when talking of masturbation… is there anybody here, anyone, if pressed to talk about masturbation in a pastorly role, who would discuss masturbating in a mirror and being turned on by their own body and homosexual acts?

How is it that this even comes in a person’s mind I wonder? Mark, methinks you may reveal too much personal information…

I think I need to go take a shower to wash the creepy off after a few minutes of his sharing his perversions. I’ll be the guy in the corner after trying to claw my mind’s eye out so that I can forget this.

    Oh that pamphlet has been around for years. I think I saw some of John MacArthur’s fans ripping on it because “Porn Again” was considered an offensive pun on “born again”. I suppose one slippery slope deserves another … wait … you could go all sorts of bad places with that remark, couldn’t you?

    Well if you haven’t heard his sermons from Song of Songs do yourself the favor of not listening to them. 🙂 I know some single people here in Seattle who have not quite detoxed from three months of “Peasant Princess” sermons three years later. Nothing makes unmarried, divorced, widowed or prepubescent church attenders feel quite so welcome as eleven sermons about oral sex in marriage because Song of Songs 2:3 says so. It sounds like all Driscoll did was recycle his 1999 sermons and expand on them for a 2008 rerun.

      Does this sound like Obsession and Projection to you?

    That kind of reminds me of the one joke Seth Macfarlane made at the Trump roast: “When Trump bangs a supermodel, he closes his eyes and imagines he’s jerking off.”

    That’s all he had? Sounds like Macfarlane.TV could lose both The Simpsons and Family Guy at this point and nothing would be lost.

      Couldn’t agree with you more! However it seems that both shows are set to be with us for the foreseeable future. On the other hand, the last couple of South Park episodes have really been killing it IMHO.

        I haven’t felt that recent South Park episodes have been as good as their peak years (seasons 4 through 10). There’s been some great stuff in seasons 11-13 but I haven’t been watching it consistently since I got laid off and have been job-hunting the last two years. I think the last episodes I saw were “Fishsticks” and “Margaritaville” (which was brilliant).

        If the Simpsons cast hold out for more money that show could end. Animation work isn’t necessarily in the same union as regular SGA and related work so cartoons can keep plugging along despite writer strikes (which is the subtext of “Canada on Strike”, I think). Even South Park feels like it’s slipped a bit over fifteen years but at least I can say about them that sometimes I want to see what they’re doing.

    I’ve seen horrible things done. Horrible things done. I’ve seen children dedicated in occultic groups and demons come upon them as an infant by invitation. And I wasn’t present for any of it, but I’ve seen it visibly.

    Does this mean “Spectral Evidence” as per Salem 1692?

    After all, “occultic groups and demons” mean WITCHCRAFT!!!!!

    Wow, we are living in scary times. Mark is truly a delusional pervert. To think that some so called Christians are falling for this garbage. Sounds like many are drinking this poisonous kool-aid. Many want to listen to what they want to here…..the Bible warns us of these seducing spirits. This is cultish to me and to subject women into that form of sexual abuse that they are to serve and submit to their husband to this twisted Biblical oral sex. This guy is INSANE. God created sex solely for marriage and that celebrated in intimacy and priivacy of your sacred bedroom.
