Mark Driscoll Central

Posted: September 15, 2011 in blogs, theology

Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle and co-founder of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network, recently launched a brand new website:

The site is a resource hub for all things Driscoll, including a list of his books, tons of teaching content, and some of his recent campaigns.  The site also promises contributions from Driscoll’s wife, Grace, and their teenage daughter.

Driscoll explains the site:

The site will serve to provide more personal information such as what I’m doing with my family and how the Holy Spirit is changing me by the grace of God to be more like Jesus.

I believe this is important. Hebrews 13:7 says, “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.” And 1 Timothy 4:16 commands, “Watch your life and doctrine closely.”

Sure, a face-melting tweet or theologically-precise blog is important. But, so are the practical details of life, such as date night with your spouse and having fun with your kids.

Through various posts, I’ll cover the theological and the practical, doctrine and life, what Christians believe and how Christians behave, and the text of Scripture and context of life. The big idea is that we need both a theology of something (e.g., marriage, parenting, sex, joy, suffering) and a reality of that thing. Theology alone is not enough, as for example, plenty of guys have written marriage books but have miserable wives.
