Strong words from Mark Driscoll - but he certainly has a way with them!

Mark Driscoll is a controversial pastor at times but I have to say, he says what he means and doesn't mince words. Read the following to see:

Self-righteousness has so seeped into American Christianity that being a missionary to one’s neighbors is easily overlooked because of the sickness of our faith. How sick are we when the most popular books among American Christians are about how to get blessed by praying a small section of the Old Testament Scripture like a pagan mantra, and about the Rapture, as if the goal of the Christian life were to get more junk and leave this trailer park of a planet before God’s tornado touches down on all the sinners? Only through repentant eyes will we see that God has a plan, by the power of the Gospel of Grace, to build a community of transformed people.

— Mark Driscoll, The Radical Reformission, p. 78
