The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill

posted by on November 30 at 10:03 AM

It appears that the internal dissent at the Mars Hill Church—brought on by the recent firing of two pastors—has prompted a few irate members to take to the blogosphere.

While Mars Hill’s members-only site is still on lockdown, Hillers (Hillees? Martians?) are popping up on The Rise and Fall of Mark Driscoll for lively discussions about Jesus, Driscoll and Chris Rock.

Posts to the blog are a bit infrequent, but it’s worth a look. I’m sure you can get someone to engage you in the comments, if you’re so inclined.

Sweet Jesus, the writing style of the religious folks really drives my crazy. I can only bring myself to read it for short periods of time.

"I pray that you would rethink the path you have chosen and be reconciled to Mars Hill in a manner worthy of Christ."

"That they are is evident and proven by the Word of God even if it is not evident in your experience. "

"I love and wish to obey God I will submit to the elders he has placed over me as long as doing so does not cause me to sin or violate my own conscience"

"Christ did not come for peace in the world but he did expect it within the body of Christ."

"Your exegesis of my comments is spot on though- even if these men were not watching over our souls even then I still believe God has called members of that local body to submit to those elders"
