Mark Driscoll: Deceived and/or Deceiver?

Last night, I had trouble sleeping as I reviewed this part of yesterday's post


"Without blushing, Paul is simply stating that when it comes to leading in the church, women are unfit because they are more gullible and easier to deceive than men.  Before you get all emotional like a woman in hearing this, please consider the content of the women's magazines at your local grocery store that encourages liberated women in our day to watch porno with their boyfriends, master oral sex for men who have no intention of marrying them, pay for their own dates in the name of equality, spend an average of three-fourths of their childbearing years having sex but trying not to get pregnant, and abort 1/3 of all babies – and ask yourself if it doesn’t look like the Serpent is still trolling the garden and that the daughters of Eve aren’t gullible in pronouncing progress, liberation, and equality.”


I have one thing to ask. What in the world are the sons of Adam doing while their womenfolk are having sex, oral or otherwise and watching porno with someone. With who? Demons?  Driscoll, in his poorly exegeted pronouncement demonstrates quite clearly that women are not the only ones who are deceived. Good flaming night! What are they teaching in seminary these days?

    I had a similar thoughts after reading yesterday’s post. 1) as a believer, I am not picking up the magazine at the grocery checkout for instructions on how to “walk in a manner worthy.” 2) the bible says I have been given everything I need for life and godliness, the power to not be deceived, and 3) at least the womens’ magazines can be presented in the checkout line, how about those gentleman’s magazines? Please consider the content of those magazines, Mr. Driscoll.

    i would guess – from the quote above – that he thinks it’s OK for husbands and wives to watch porn together, though he hasn’t publicly said so (to my knowledge, at least).

    Talk about being beaten over the head with a demeaning message! I think he’s at the top of the list re. misogyny. (And yes, I’m a feminist, though not the kind that guys like Driscoll rant about. ;))

    Glad to hear your response. Why? I think that many people, upon hearing this man, feel that way but stuff it because he is supposed to be cool and is endorsed by some the supposed Reformission “leaders” so he must be OK, right?

    What a shame. I hope his wife has SOMEONE who is really looking out for her safety. Driving all that way just because she forgot to call him? She should have called the police. Sounds like stalking to me!

    Someone should do an intervention with this ‘pastor’. He’s dangerous, un-Christlike, and quite frightening.

    It sure sounds like that to me. But, I’m just a woman, what do I know?

    I’ll bet Grace called her parents to let them know that she arrived at the university safely. Maybe Driscoll should have checked with them before acting like a maniac.

    YOu know what the worst part of this message really is? Driscoll does not believe in the power of the Cross for women. It was not enough to overcome what he claims is inherent deception and gullibility in females.

    What a tiny God he believes in. And why not? Men are the gods for women.

    Conversely, he must admit that Adam sinned with his eyes wide open and on purpose. So, this must mean Driscoll believes these are bettter inherent character traits for leadership.

    Driscoll not only fits the profile of a narcissist, he also fits the profile of a typical school yard bully.

    Hey ladies,

    Maybe we should boycott grocery shopping since we are so gullible and easily deceived that we will be jaded by the trashy offerings at the checkout stand. I certainly hope Mark is doing all the grocery shopping for the family. It would make sense since he feels the need to screen all her e-mails.

    Too funny. I was just telling my husband this morning that it’s too bad he thinks so highly of me and my abilities. Otherwise, I’d figure out how to convince him I wasn’t capable of grocery shopping, housework, laundry, etc. and he’d have to do it all for me. The unfortunate thing is that most husbands with over the top interpretations of gender roles are probably harsh bordering on abusive, if not outright abusive, if their wives don’t fulfill their roles the way their husband’s expect them to.

    I guess I’ll have to forbid my daughters (ages 18 and 21) from shopping, too, since they are so easily deceived (being the weaker sex). 🙁 I guess all the effort I put into raising them to be godly young ladies just doesn’t count.

    Since you are fairly new to TWW, you might be interested in a post I wrote about two years ago when Mark Driscoll came and spoke to my older daughter’s college ministry group. By the way, I am still VERY MAD about Driscoll’s corrupting influence on that wonderful group of students (and probably countless others all over the country). And he thinks minds are being perverted by the secular world?

    Parents, please read my post… You will be absolutely SHOCKED at what Driscoll is sharing with our sons and daughters right under our noses.

    He’s welcome to buy my groceries if he fancies paying for them too!

    Come to think of it, I’m feeling particularly susceptible right now and could do with a new laptop. Perhaps I should shoot him an email and ask him to sort it out for me because left to my own devices I’d probably just buy a lipstick or something by mistake.

    I would ask my other half but he’s got this weird idea in his head about me being able to handle my own life. I feel so unprotected! 🙁

    ..shaking my head in bewilderment ..
    last time I looked (which isn’t very often) the contents of women’s magazines was a LOT more innocuous than the contents of men’s magazines.
    I think it’s Mr. Driscoll who’s under major deception and showing lack of discernment.

    Does he monitor his wife’s reading too? I’m getting really bad vibes about how much he controls her life.

    BTW, I’m happy to buy my own groceries, but I think he’d better come and do my cleaning. How can I possibly discern where the dirt is?

  15. Notice: Undefined variable: button in /home/guswo2wr8yyv/public_html/tww2/wp-content/plugins/quote-comments/quote-comments.php on line 127

    Shouldn’t it go something like this:

    Eve was deceived = all women are gullible

    Adam was a poor leader who let Eve be deceived = all men are poor leaders


    In all honesty we lean towards the complementarian view ourselves, but there seem to be lots of people, especially famous pastors, applying it in extreme and unbiblical ways.

    Or, maybe Driscoll’s right and all of us satanic busybodies should get off the internet and go cook dinner or something.

    Just finished with dinner, and now I’m multi-tasking — watching NCIS with my hubby and surfing the net…

    Here’s my question. How can a Christian woman who is being led by the Holy Spirit be gullible and easily deceived?

    Since Mark speaks so “knowledgeable” about those ” women’s magazines at your local grocery store that encourages liberated women” to……..My guess is that Mark reads those “Garbage magazine too” and begs his wife to read them to him before he goes nighty – night – otherwise How would HE know?

    Dr Who,

    I cringe to think about what Mark Driscoll must be reading… Maybe that’s why he interprets the Song of Songs in such a twisted way. He’s definitely tickling the ears of his male sycophants, and he knows it! I feel sorry for the women who attend Mars Hill Church.

  20. Notice: Undefined variable: button in /home/guswo2wr8yyv/public_html/tww2/wp-content/plugins/quote-comments/quote-comments.php on line 127

    Think about it, the man is twisted.

    He uses a book of the bible like other men use their hand and a magazine.

    Sick puppy.

    Why is this attractive to anyone?

    Just like pornography corrupts the mind, so do sick jokes. I believe Almighty God will hold Mark Driscoll accountable for corrupting the meaning of Ecclesiastes 9:10 before a watching world. Unfortunately for Driscoll, he doesn’t seem to comprehend the seriousness of his sin.

    Maybe Driscoll thinks the women don’t get as big of a dose of the Spirit and that’s why they need a man. Either get married or be a Return of the Daughters girl for life baby!

    I wonder what his sermons geared towards men sound like. Besides raunchy that is. I already know they’re sure to sound raunchy.

    This (I believe) is a result of biblicism.

    Instead of taking a text and lifting out of it the gospel, they (biblicists) use their ‘law lens’ to parse it out like a bunch of Jewish rabbis.

    There is so much biblicism in the church today that it makes you want to gag.

    Well stated. I remember someone telling me that I shouldn’t read so much about the Bible because the Bible can explain itself. Well, there are one too many pastors out there who disagree with one another on many points. If it was so gosh darn easy, why is that the case?

    Too many stick to a wooden, literal translation and miss the deeper meaning of many passages. Although, I do find it funny how these folks skip over things like wearing a head covering and lots of jewelry. Fashion trumps literalism any day of the week.

    Someone should go to Mark’s church some Sunday and read this list out loud from the pulpit and then at the end ask if ANYONE would really want to live in a world where all of these women simply stayed home, had babies and catered to their husband’s desires.

    I can add 2 more:

    1. Catherine Bushnell: Missionary and Bible Scholar. Wrote God’s Word to Women about translation.

    2. Joanna, wife of Chuza, in Luke 8

    “Why is this attractive to anyone?”

    “Why is this attractive to anyone?”

    It’s attractive to people who still suffer from old-wineskinism. They think the old wine of male dominance and privilege is better than the new wine of liberty and justice for all, including the womenfolk. They are under a romantic delusion based on fairy tales and half truths.

    Here is a movie based on the true story of a woman during the time of English patriarchy in the not so distant past. There is no Jane Austen fantasy here, but rather the hard cold facts of men owning all the power and money and women just having to deal with it even underneath the glamour of the very rich.

    Women are more easily deceived?

    What about Brooksley Born, Chairperson of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), who warned about the dangers of derivatives and predicted a meltdown because of them. Alan Greenspan and others totally blew her off, shut her up, and shut her work down. They accused her of being “irrascible, difficult, stubborn, unreasonable.” In hindsight, of course, she was a prophet.

    What about Sherron Watkins, the whistleblower and VP of Enron who warned Kenneth Lay and others about the accounting irregularities and foretold the Enron financial disaster. She has received numerous awards for her courage to speak the truth about the corruption there.

    What about Elizabeth Warren, who (in addition to being a Sunday School teacher, BTW) has been warning for years about the way credit card companies and other institutions prey on vulnerable Americans. Her discernment is so respected that she’s been on the short list for appointment as a Supreme Court Justice, and is now head of the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

    I wonder what Driscoll thinks of women like these.

    I must really be letting the male gender down. My wife goes to the store alone. I didn’t know I was not supposed to allow that. I guess if she is buying salacious magazines she must be hiding them because I haven’t seen any. I admit I wasn’t aware of some of the things being said by Mark. It is hard for me to believe that the pulpit can become so, in my opinion, so degraded. The equal amazement is how jaded ppl can become and think because a pastor says something they are obligated to practice it. I guess I misinterpreted what Paul meant when He wrote “there is neither male nor female in Christ”. Of course i am sure we should be guided more by the Driscoll doctrine I conclude facetiously.

    I apologize ahead of time to all the good men who comment here. Consider yourselves exempt from this comment.

    Well if women are gullible according to scripture, then we need to take the whole counsel of Scripture and declare that all men are liars.

    Psalm 116:11 I said in my alarm, “All men are liars.”

    Psalm 62:9 Men of low degree are only vanity, and men of rank are a lie; In the balances they go up; They are together lighter than breath.

    Romans 3:4 May it never be! Rather, let God be found true, though every man be found a liar.

    Now don’t get all emotional like a man jacked up on testosterone and go on an angry tirade, Driscoll. If the hairs on the back of your head are standing on end, that just proves what I’m saying is true. The scripture clearly, in three places mind you, declares you are a liar. You are not fit to lead because you cannot be trusted to even tell the truth. And we know this is so with all men because of the stories men tell about the fish they catch or exaggerations concerning their sexual conquests.
    And we know in particular about how you lie about scripture and twist it to say things it doesn’t say in order to control and maniputlate women. I’m especially disgusted with your flat out, blatant, and unholy lies concerning the Song of Solomon. You ought to be ashamed of yourself for all your lies.

    Oops. Sorry folks. I just meant to share those scriptures in order to show how anyone can use scripture to beat down anyone else and got a bit carried away. Well, okay. Not sorry. I rather enjoyed myself.

    Oh that Driscoll would read what you have written! However, he probably would read it and not get it because he appears to be self-absorbed.

    I tried to limit the list to women that have actually improved and made contributions to our society .. hence no Sarah Palin. 🙁

    Karlton, I know that!
    Hence the apology to all you fellas before I started on my little rant.

    Neither are all women gullible. Just because ol’MarkyMark finds some scripture he likes that seems to support his prejudices against women, it doesn’t make it so.

    I was simply dishing out to him what he feels he can freely dish out against women and pointing out that He so freakingly wrongly divides the word of truth, he ought to be a laughing stock. It’s unbelieveable that he’s considered a respected man of God. Unbelieveable.

    Oh no-I like Palin. I am just another one of those dadblasted conservative water carriers. She is a strong, Alaskan woman who doesn’t play well to “sophisticates” on the east and west coast.

    It’s astounding to me that MD is given a platform from which to spew his nonsense. I simply don’t understand why any serious Christian leader gives this idiot the time of day.

    Mark Driscoll in “Pastor Dad” e-book — What thinkest thou? As for me, I am looking for a place to wretch… Might the wife have a real reason to be disgruntled and he just hasn’t been liistening?

    “Proverbs 19:13 further stresses the correlation between the type of mother you choose for your children and the kind of children you will have, saying, “A foolish son is ruin to his father, and a wife’s quarreling is a continual dripping of rain.” These two miseries simply go together. If a wife is a nag who disrespects her husband by chirping at him all the time, then the children in that home will follow her example and become fools who ruin their lives by similarly disobeying and dishonoring their dad. Wicked women not only fail to restrain their tongues in front of their children, but often intentionally attack their husbands in an effort to get their children’s allegiance, undermine the authority of their father, and bring anarchy to the home. Proverbs rightly calls this rottenness in the bones. By the way, this is how we have arrived at our present culture. Carolyn Graglia, the author of Domestic Tranquility, writes that in the 1950s, men were not doing a good job of leading and loving their families, but that the wives did not have the power and authority to overthrow their husbands and rule the families as they desired. So the wives simply recruited their children as allies against their husbands. If they could undermine the father’s authority and respect in the home, then the wife and children could control and manipulate and drive out the husbands and rule over the family. Brilliantly, Proverbs 19:13 explains how we got from the 1950s to the anarchy of the 1960s—namely, foolish men married godless women who recruited their own children to overthrow their fathers and usher in anarchy. Anyone doubting this descent would be well served to simply watch one of the innumerable popular sitcoms on television where the husband is an idiot and the wife trash-talks him in front of the children, and ask themselves why anyone finds that funny. Whose responsibility is it? Ultimately, it is men who are responsible because they chose their wives, they let them continue in sin, and they let them destroy their children. Hence, it is important that a man first love God and then seek a woman who loves God and will respect him and love his children, because he is ultimately responsible as the head of his home. Does this mean that the wife can never speak to her husband honestly? No, but if she is angry or the conversation will be tense, she should speak to her husband privately and respectfully and not in front of his children. This does not mean that the parents never disagree or resolve conflict in front of the children. The children need to see their parents resolve their differences, and this should be done in a godly way in front of the children and taken in private if things are not being handled well. Some of you grew up in homes where mom continually cut the knees off of dad right in front of you. And you learned to dishonor your father. Wise men seek to avoid this at all costs by marrying wisely.”

    If my husband scanned my emails and decided which ones i could read, I would know that I did not marry wisely. In fact, I might have married a “wicked” man. So only a man should marry wisely?

    His stuff is asinine. Only a man choses in marriage? What about a woman? Does she sit around, waiting to be chosen?

    Actually, I have a different take on the 1950s. The reason for the anarchy is the fact that the families were preaching one thing and living another. It was the superficiality that the 1960s revolted against. And the superficiality was as much the fault of men as well as women.

    Driscoll is starting to sound like a nut job.

    This is so interesting, along with kooky, we may use it as a blog post There is something going on with Driscoll. Once again, I predict that something weird is going to happen with him and it will be quite newsworthy.

    Just *starting* to sound like a nut job? 🙂 I first read this a few years ago, when I still had favorable impressions of Driscoll because of my limited on-line exposure. But this just sits really wrong with me. It’s all the wife’s fault, except that he should have known she was wicked from the start. No matter if he has been driving her crazy by not listenening to her quieter entreaties. How about, “Honey, I understand that I must have deeply offended you. How can I make it right?” That’s more like real leadership. But nope, the little woman just has to keep chirping away… How do the women in his church stand it? We switched churches last year, and though there is an Acts 29 church nearby, I refused to even consider visiting there. It woulda been like jumping from the frying pan into the fire.

    BTW, if you want to see the whole e-book, here is the link.

    I believe this “wicked woman” stuff will eventually backfire on some of these guys. Over time, the women will get tired of it as well. The only women who will put up with this for years are poor women who already have seriously low self esteem. We all need to keep speaking out.

    Some of these male pastors seriously underestimate women. That will be to their detriment when women get tired of being called gullible and easily deceived-another Driscoll belief. There are quite a few men who fall into that category-Driscoll being one of them.
