    Mark Driscoll takes on Jehovah Witnesses and Spark Plugs…

    I'm not sure which is funnier. Mark's reaction to Jehovah Witness, or the fact that he didn't have time to change his clothes after a long hard day working at the spark plug factory...

      Are you making fun of Mark? I can’t tell.

      What’s with Driscoll going all, “friendship evangelism,” on this?  I think that’s what’s making me scratch my head more than the spark plug logo on his shirt.

      At the beginning of this clip I was encouraged to hear Mark speak so highly of the importance of evangelism but that excitement quickly waned.  Good ‘ole “friendship” or “relationship” evangelism.  What a sham and what a shame!  If you had the opportunity to go back in time to September 10, 2001 and could stand in front of the twin towers knowing full well what was going to happen the next day…would you spend time trying to “build a relationship” with everyone who worked inside those buildings?  Or, would you plead with everyone of them to flee from the impending danger that will meet them in the morning? The sad thing about it all is that the mormons and the jehovah’s witnesses do a better job at sharing their faith than do the Christians in America.  They have nothing but a lie yet they are faithful to make sure they get in front of a lot of people to share it.  We have the TRUTH and won’t give it away.  When was the last time a Christian approached you in public or knocked on your door to share the Gospel?  Then ask yourself when was the last time a mormon or a jw approached you or knocked on your door?

      Jesus suffered an excruciating punishment and then died for our salvation.  Can’t we return the favor by at least telling others how they can have eternal life? Does the fate of the lost stir up compassion in our hearts to try to save them from the fire or are we like survivors of the Titantic, tucked away in our rescue boats and singing Jesus songs while countless others are drowning around us?  Wake up Christians and get to work!!  Mark should have taken the time (and I am sure he did)  to sit with these men and open the Scriptures and show them the truth instead of complaining that they are knocking on his door. How often does a lost person knock on your door giving you the opportunity to share the Truth?  But in an effort to entertain, he is teaching his congregation that these people are nothing more than an interruption and a nuisance.  It’s really sad because we know what is the fate of their eternal soul.

      The great commission in a spark plug jacket.  I love it.

      I like Mark more all the time.

      Yes, it is sad to see Mark on the “friendship evangelism” train( or stock car). Or should I say, “trainwreck”.   I thought he was about biblical evangelism and not the worldly stuff.  Even though he mocks it, he must be all about church growth.  Which is perfect, as an emergent type of guy.
