  1. We so desperately need to remember why we have received grace, what true grace accomplishes in the life of a believer.
    And that God in all His love, all His mercy, all His patience, He has never changed for He changes not. And He remains even today a consuming fire.
    We want fear returned to the Church, then we must remember grace is for walking in and not trampling upon, that we might serve Him acceptably as He is worthy of!

    "Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire."
    (Hebrews 12:28-29)

  2. I appreciate Mark's ministry. I believe he preaches solid doctrine and that he is a Brother in Christ.

    There are areas we can show grace to fellow forgiven sinners.

    If he was out of line I think he should be counseled and forgiven.

    I personally don't believe that we can compare Driscoll's situation to the crooks who preach a false gospel and heretics like T.D. Jakes.

    I've been truly blessed and have learned allot from Driscoll recently through the Mars Hill phone application.
