Mark Driscoll: Bullies Keep Bullying (LSP #200)
Reading Time: 8 minutes None of us thought Mark Driscoll would learn a thing after losing Mars Hill and Acts 29, the church-planting umbrella group he helped create, back in 2014. And nope, he sure hasn’t.
Lord Snow Presides… Over a “Love Quiz” that Mark Driscoll Fails Miserably. (#21)
Reading Time: 11 minutes I just can’t stop laughing today over Mark Driscoll’s current post. It’s about a Love Quiz that he presents to his readers that he himself could not pass in a million years. Today we’ll be fisking that quiz–with links demonstrating that Mark Driscoll himself is not qualified to tell anybody else how to be loving. Today Lord Snow Presides over Mark Driscoll and his hypocritical Love Quiz.
Lord Snow Presides #16: Mark Driscoll Can’t Stop the Signal.

Reading Time: 11 minutes I noticed Jefferson Bethke’s video making the rounds again, so I wanted to talk about it today. I don’t think it’s nearly as impressive as he–and his many fans–think it is.
Seventy Times Seven.
Reading Time: 10 minutes Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to […]
Consolidation and the Dwindling of Belief
Reading Time: 9 minutes I saw this really interesting piece about “church cannibalism” and it ties into something else I was reading about the dwindling of religious belief in America. What these two stories tell me is that Americans are steadily becoming less religiously observant over time, but huge megachurches are growing in membership and numbers. But I’m not […]
It’s Okay If You’re a Christian.
Reading Time: 12 minutes Today we’re going to talk about how, to toxic Christians, the only moral lie is their lie. I’ve said before that Christians–especially the toxic sort we discuss often on this blog (btw, for the persecution-fantasizing Christians at the national-level Republican Party’s Twitter feed who got upset with me last time I used that term, here’s […]
