Mark Driscoll “God Hates You”

Wow!!! I almost speechless right now.  Mark Driscoll has always been the type of preacher that tells it like it is (or at least what he thinks it is) but this time he’s gone way beyond that.  Near the beginning of this video he says…

“What people like to do is take one of God’s attributes, elevate it above the rest and/or ignore the totality of what the Bible says about God.  So it says God is love, I like that one I don’t like all the rest.  How about I ignore those.”

Now I don’t know about you but when I think of God, love is the first thing that comes to mind.  Elevating “love” above other attributes is a lot better than elevating “wrath” and “hate” like Driscoll is doing in this video.  But that’s not the worst.  Near the end of the video he says something that is utterly unbelievable…

“Some of you, God hates you. Some of you, God is sick of you. God is frustrated with you. God is wearied by you. God has suffered long enough with you. He doesn’t think you’re cute. He doesn’t think it’s funny. He doesn’t think your excuse is meritous. He doesn’t care if you compare yourself to someone worse than you, He hates them too. God hates, right now, personally, objectively hates some of you.”

This article HERE does a great job of refuting his supposed “biblical proof” but my favorite part of the article is the last three lines.  “Of course, there is a place for this message that “God hates you.” In fact, their pastor is getting pretty old and I’m sure the church will be in need of a new preacher soon. So, Pastor Mark, if you’re looking for a new church to add to your Mars Hill kingdom, might I suggest Westboro Baptist?” The only thing I can say to that is Amen! Couldn’t have said it better myself.
