Great quote

Gotta love this one from Mark Driscoll about some branches of the emerging church:

“There is a strong drift toward the hard theological left. Some emergent types [want] to recast Jesus as a limp-wrist hippie in a dress with a lot of product in His hair, who drank decaf and made pithy Zen statements about life while shopping for the perfect pair of shoes. In Revelation, Jesus is a prize fighter with a tattoo down His leg, a sword in His hand and the commitment to make someone bleed. That is a guy I can worship. I cannot worship the hippie, diaper, halo Christ because I cannot worship a guy I can beat up. I fear some are becoming more cultural than Christian, and without a big Jesus who has authority and hates sin as revealed in the Bible, we will have less and less Christians, and more and more confused, spiritually self-righteous blogger critics of Christianity.”

Have you read "Why men hate going to church" by David Murrow? Don't agree with everything in there, but there's a lot that makes you think (in between some of the pop psychology...)

Be interested to know what you think if you have read it...

Nope.did a search..Sounds a lot like what Driscoll is saying.

Interesting though that most ministers are men and yet the Gospel has been somewaht feminised!?
