This is somewhat difficult!
We feel we need to be upfront with all of our readers and inform you that we have recently removed videos etc of Mark Driscoll from our site.
We should also be very candid with you and inform you that not everyone on the 'CHRISTIAN FAITH' team has been keen to have Driscoll feature on our site at all! Certainly not for the past few years. There have been worrying signs that all is not as it should be.
If you don't know by now, our Christian brother Mark Driscoll has not been enjoying the best of years - humanly speaking. In fact, this year in particular has been awful - true story!
Allegations of bullying, plagiarism and a lack of accountability has recently seen Driscoll's books removed by a bookselling company; his services as a speaker curtailed and even former colleagues have denounced him on the blogosphere. Driscoll is not the poster boy he once was.
We have been increasingly nervous about recent developments yet we are not sinless either. We run a very responsible website but we are not blameless in all that we do. Suffice to say that it's best (responsible) that we remove Driscoll's published input on our site - whilst he works out how he can best serve the Lord He truly loves. We want only the best for him and also those he has clearly hurt.
