As an LU graduate I cannot believe what I have read and heard over the events of the past few days concerning Mark Driscoll and his invite to speak at LU.
How in the world did Driscoll get an invite? His potty mouth in the pulpit and his latest book on marriage which advocates wives doing things to their husbands that are disgusting, along with other perverted things should have been enough to give the leaders that be at LU to pass on Driscoll. Johnnie Moore, please tell me this is all a mistake.
My disgust for this scenerio has nothing to do with his theology. I supported Glenn Beck speaking at Graduation. But this is Convo and Driscoll. I do not care that he is reformed. I care that he is promoting filth!
Where are they? There are many Godly people serving LU as Trustees. Surely they can do something. Have they read Driscolls book?
Thomas Road Leaders:
Please tell me that you have spoken to Jerry Jr and begged for this to cease!
The Falwell Brothers:
Do you really want your wives being taught marriage specifics as described in Driscolls book? Do you want the young ladies of LU to advocate such in their own marriages? Would you let your children read such a book and put into practice the details contained?
Training Champions for Christ is still the mantra on the web site. But the same web site is defending and promoting the coming event later this month. The mantra and this decision do not fit. Nor do the tweets and emails coming out of LU.
This is one alum who is grieved over what I am seeing and reading. My have times changed. Yet we all know, God has not. Driscoll is dangerous for young people and for marriages. This is NOT the training that Dr. Falwell and all those who started this institution intended nor would have allowed. More yet, this is NOT of God. And that alone should settle it!
I am one graduate looking at my class ring and asking "what in the world has happened!"
