So why does the Christian Post? And why is the headline indicative of the notion that Driscoll has written the piece when the by-line shows otherwise?
Here’s the headline: Does Hollywood’s ‘Noah’ Miss the Point? Mark Driscoll Explains What That Point Is.
This raises the immediate response- so what? He’s not a biblical scholar by any measurement so who cares and who can care what he thinks of the subject? Besides, that is, the Christian Post (which for all appearances seems to be serving as little more than a platform for Driscoll).
Here’s the by-line: BY ANUGRAH KUMAR, CHRISTIAN POST CONTRIBUTOR
I wonder how many of the Christian Post’s readers read by-lines and how many recognize this as nothing more than a cover for Driscoll.
As the $125-million blockbuster “Noah” hit theaters Friday, Pastor Mark Driscoll sought to enlighten readers on what the biblical story of Noah is about and to apparently help Christians better decide if the Hollywood film misses the point. Biblically faithful Christians would be quick to point out that popular depictions of Noah “inevitably miss the point entirely,” Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Wash., says in a blog post on the Resurgence website.
Again, why does the Christian Post care and why would its readers? Is the Christian Post owned by Mars Hill?
