The Sunday Sound-Bite...
Gospel Driven Disciples includes a weekly component called The Sunday Sound-Bite.
These "sound-bites" will be from various men of God commenting on various topics with the goal of provoking a deeper appreciation of our Lord Jesus Christ and to facilitate obedience to the admonition given in II Peter 3:18 – “grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Savior Jesus Christ.”
There is no excuse for loose, blue, sexual, or bathroom humor in the life of a believer let alone coming from the mouth of a preacher in the pulpit. God does not need us to be hip, on the cutting edge, cultural relevant, or on the level of sinful people in order to effectively share the gospel and teach the word. There is nothing to be admired or emulated in Mark Driscoll and those who lower the sacred status of the pulpit, the Word, and the character of God.
This selection is an excerpt from a sermon at the 2009 Shepherd's Conference hosted by John MacArthur and the Grace Community Church by Phil Johnson, a pastor at Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, CA on "Sound Doctrine, Sound Words."
