As he’s now telling them to stay off the internet… doubtless to protect them from such nasty things as the facts and the truth about him and his ‘ministry’. So, really, how long before he completely plunges into insanity and, like Jim Jones, urges his followers to some unimaginable self destructive behavior?
From Mark Driscoll’s sermon dated June 8 on the Mars Hill Church website:
Now, some of you may have heard we’re a Reformed church. Don’t Google it, don’t blow your head up. We love Jesus, read your Bible, stay off the Internet. It’s all shenanigans anyways.
Admittedly, this is a very short part of a very long sermon but I am starting to wonder if this represents a more significant development at Mars Hill Church.
Over the weekend, and then again today, I have heard from sources near Mars Hill that some in the congregation are being warned to avoid blogs and media that have carried articles deemed to be critical of Mars Hill.
One source (6/17, now multiple sources) told me that the accuracy of information is being questioned and false information is being told about me and others.
How long, then, before Driscoll strives to control everything the cult, erm, ‘church’ reads? And what greater indication that Mars Hill is a cult than the fact that its leader is telling folk to stay away from X? (where x = anything Driscoll finds discomfiting).
