Phoenix and the determination of Mark Driscoll
"Determinator" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
The controversial pastor Mark Driscoll has announced
that he's planting a church in Phoenix.
He IS determined!
Why is everyone so shocked?
Some are shocked that he never mentioned his controversial past with Mars Hill. Of course not! For one thing, he probably doesn't think he did anything wrong. And secondly, he probably wants to start with a clean slate.
He's not accountable to anyone. He can do whatever he wants. And his followers can do whatever they want. I bet he's already got the money flowing in. And I bet there are already hundreds if not thousands chomping at the bit for him to announce its opening.
I could go out right now and start a church in my area. Nothing's stopping me. I could call it The Naked Church and I'm the nakedpastor. Then I would start demanding tithes immediately and with just ten people I would already be earning¬†the average income of the congregation. Right?
He's guaranteed success, really. Don't you think?
(Have you noticed I don't have ads on my site? Basically, my nakedpastor site makes no income. I do sell some art, a few books, and facilitate an online community. But my cartoons essentially bring no income. I would really appreciate it if you would consider becoming a patron. I have 13 so far that supports me with a total income of $97/month. Every little bit helps. Thanks in advance my friends!)
