More "wisdom" from Mark Driscoll from the most recent issue of Relevant Magazine:

Relevant: What trends in church and worship styles do you see? Are they positive or negative?

Driscoll: I'll be happy when we have more than just prom songs to Jesus sung by some effeminate guy on an acoustic guitar offered as mainstream worship music.

Relevant: What is a negative tendency of this generation as it relates to the faith?

Driscoll: This generation can be a whiny bunch of idealists getting together in small groups to complain about megachurches and the religious right rather than doing something.

Relevant: What do you see as the greatest challenge for young Christians in the next 10 years?

Driscoll: There is a strong drift toward the hard theological left. Some emergent types want to recast Jesus as a limp-wristed hippie in a dress with a lot of product in His hair, who drank decaf and made pithy Zen statements about life while shopping for the perfect pair of shoes. In Revelation, Jesus is a pride fighter with a tattoo down His leg, a sword in His hand and the commitment to make someone bleed. That is a guy I can worship. I cannot worship the hippie, diaper, halo Christ because I cannot worship a guy I can beat up. I fear some are becoming more cultural than Christian, and without a big Jesus who has authority and hates sin as revealed in the Bible, we will have less and less Christians, and more and more confused, spiritually self-righteous blogger critics of Christianity.
