Mark Driscoll's Disturbing Rap Sheet

Once again as previously posted I will share once again our concerns about Driscoll (not an exhaustive list):

Things you should know about Mark Driscoll (please pray he will repent of these ungodly/unbiblical things)

: The following excerpts contain sexually explicit language

1.) Obsession with sex (we are warned about this stuff 2 Peter 2:18-19)

2.) He has some very alarming audio: The pornographic vision and his talking to demons, listen to audio "click here".

3.) Mark Driscoll's Death bus

4.)  He totally distorts scripture by allowing his Calvinistic views to say that Noah was not a righteous man and calls it a false Gospel, even though God is very clear in Genesis 7:1 "Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation." I stick with God's word over Driscoll's:

5.) John MacArthur's response to Mark Driscoll's teaching on "Song of Solomon/ Songs":

"The Rape of Solomon's Song, Part 1-4"

6.) Mark Driscoll on Loveline (Full Episode):

7.) A few disturbing quotes from Driscoll (not an exhaustive list):

"Incredibly, he has built a ministry, in large part, by preaching and teaching about sex, and by using crude language. He is skilled in mixing the holy and profane—in his book, Confessions of a Reformission Rev (2006), he explains his technique for achieving church growth: ‘I assumed the students and singles were all pretty horny, so I went out on a limb and preached through the Song of Songs in the fall… Each week I extolled the virtues of marriage, foreplay, oral sex, sacred stripping and sex outdoors, just as the book teaches, because all Scripture is indeed profitable.’ [pp 94, 96]."

(Dr ES Williams, The Mark Driscoll Controversy,

"Roughly two thousand years ago, Jesus was born in a dumpy, rural, hick town, not unlike those today where guys change their oil, think pro wrestling is real, find women who chew tobacco sexy, and eat a lot of Hot Pockets with their uncle-daddy. Jesus’ mom was a poor, unwed teenage girl who was mocked for claiming she conceived via the Holy Spirit. Most people thought she concocted a crazy story to cover the “fact” that she was knocking boots with some guy in the backseat of the car at the prom. Jesus was adopted by a simple carpenter named Joseph and spent the first thirty years of his life in obscurity, swinging a hammer with his dad." (Vintage Jesus, p. 11)"

(Dr ES Williams,"Driscoll’s supporters: The danger of false teaching",

"In his book Radical Reformission (2004), he writes of Adam and Eve: “The Bible could end right there [in Genesis], after only two chapters, with the man and woman naked, eating fruit, and trying to fill the earth all by their happy, horny, holy selves… God also works through a cowardly old man named Abraham, who is happy to whore out his loving and beautiful antique of a wife to avoid conflict. God also chooses to work through a guy name Jacob, even through he’s a trickster and a con man. Later God raised up a stuttering murderer named Moses to lead his people.” (p28-29)

(Dr ES Williams,"Driscoll’s supporters: The danger of false teaching",

"His crudeness is also sexual. In Confessions he refers to intercourse as “banging (p.128).” On the same page he admits to being burned out in the ministry due to “an unspectacular sex life,” and he makes a reference to a woman being “hot like hell.” On page 96, when admitting that he isn’t like most pastors, jokes about using words in sermons like a term to refer to the male reproductive organ, as well as having “an aluminum pole in the bedroom.” Some of those “sermons on sex were R-rated (p.134).”

One of those R-rated sermons was when he gave all the guys two stones to symbolize what they needed in order to be real men (p.129). His lingo was cruder.

In Radical he says that Adam and Eve were “horny (p.28—on that page he also uses a crude term for a prostitute)” and he makes a joke about a gay orgy on page 33. He makes wisecracks about people using Viagra on pages 75 and 165. There is also a joke about a vasectomy on page 76.

Driscoll talks frankly about a threesome on page 92, and about girls’ tight pants making their backsides look big on page 95, about a girl having “junk in her trunk” on page 119.  On page 187 he references a man’s genitals, and on 185 he brags about teaching on subjects like the different ways that a woman can climax.

In Vintage Jesus he refers to intercourse as “knocking boots (p.11) and “shagging (p.41).” While attending a Monday Night Football game, he writes that “half-naked young women provide eye candy (p.164).”

On page 169 he says that our culture worships “good old-fashioned naked crazy-making” and he makes yet another reference to eating Viagra on page 183.

He also makes references to graphic sexual practices that take place, both as couples and alone, dozens of times. Not only does he talk about these topics that shouldn’t be mentioned, he does it in such a crass way. These references do not include his forthcoming book which will deal with these topics and much more (

But the worst of all of his crude comments comes in a conversation he felt the need to include in Confessions when a member of his church called him during the night crying, and told him that he had just watched a dirty movie. Driscoll asked him, “Was it a good porno?” When the young man asked for prayer, this is the prayer that Driscoll records: “Jesus, thank you for not killing him for being a pervert. Amen.” Driscoll then told the man not to call him at night when he is sleeping, and said he didn’t have time to be his accountability partner.

But it gets worse. When the man asked for advice, here is Drsicoll’s reply: “You need to stop watching porno and crying like a baby afterwards…a naked lady is good to look at, so get a job, get a wife, ask her to get naked, and look at her instead (p.60).”

Not exactly a good leadership technique."

(Tommy Mann,"Mark Driscoll: A Leader We Shouldn't Follow",

Please pray for Mark Driscoll to repent of these things. Also pray for those who are following Driscoll that the Lord will open their eyes to the dangers of Driscoll. Our heart is that Driscoll will repent and until that happens we will be faithful to warn our Lord's precious sheep about men like Driscoll so they will not be led astray.

"For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.20 For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. 21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.22 But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own vomit,” and,“a sow, having washed, to  her wallowing in the mire.”
