A press release for Pastor Mark Driscoll‘s new book contains this laughable passage:
… the outspoken pastor from Seattle issues a prophetic warning to the church that “dark days are ahead” if we don’t stop the in-fighting and refocus our efforts on preaching the gospel immediately.
“We’re approaching a cliff,” writes Driscoll. “Many Evangelicals are oblivious to the fact that Christendom is dead and real Christianity is in serious decline. As long as we see Christmas trees on government property and hear public figures talk about ‘faith,’ many Christians naively assume that real Christianity is alive and well. That’s an illusion.”
The bad news is that Christians don’t even get it, according to Driscoll — they’re stuck in their cul-de-sacs. Christians are isolated in “tribes” on the internet, and they spend too much time lobbing e-bombs at each other in cyberspace.
