Driscoll on Nightline Debate

As many of you are aware, Pastor Mark Driscoll (Mars Hill Church - Seattle, WA) was on Nightline last evening. He was there as part of a debate in Nightline's Face Off series—the entire series, so far, has covered religious topics. Although advertised as a debate about Satan, it really became more a debate about the credibility of the Bible, or more specially, about epistemology and truth. You can view the entire debate on the Nightline website >>>

Amy Letinsky, a member of Mars Hill offers an interesting perspective as she blogs (Twitters?) from the actual event. You can read her thoughts here >>>

If you didn't see it, I encourage you to take a look. Moreover, I suspect there will be a bunch of stuff in the Christian blogosphere about it over the next few days. If you see anything, link it through the COMMENT tool below, and feel free to offer your perspective as well.

My quick (very biased) take: Driscoll is at his best in this type of thing. Between him and Annie Lobert, the Gospel is clearly presented. Bishop Pearson comes across as a victim of total undiscerning syncretism, and Dr. Deepak Chopra, well, was Deepak—a walking talking billboard of sophisticated sounding but meaningless postmodernist philosophical balderdash.

In the end, further proof that only “the truth will [can] set you free” (John 8:32).
