Mark Driscoll doesn’t listen to anyone. Never has, and I sadly think he never will.
It shouldn’t surprise us that Noble’s idea of an excellent leader includes someone who has been demonstrated to engage in plagiarism, misappropriation of Church funds, misappropriation of designated funds, pornographic visionary experiences, and who was convicted by his own elder board of disqualifying traits. Beyond that, Driscoll and Mars Hill under his leadership was kicked out of Acts29… which he founded, and has never publicly repented in a way that didn’t paint him as the victim (In one instance, calling himself the struck shepherd of Zechariah 13, in another saying his Elders were participating in a deceptive trap).
Mark Driscoll doesn’t belong anywhere, except under the disciplinary supervision of a local church.
If you’re Reformed and reading this, I know Mark was one of us. He had an impact on a lot of us, myself included. Please, I know this is going to make you mad, but for Mark’s sake, we need to call him to account and stop pretending like everything is fine. It isn’t fine.
