Driscoll on Nightline

Ok, I know a few folks who don’t like this guy, but I discovered Mark Driscoll 3 years ago when I was stuck in a cubicle in Memphis. So, I have a soft place in my heart for this guy, even though he would be insulted by that because he is a manly man. Just a heads up, some of the material in this story is intended for mature audiences.

The Galatians Class


Next Thursday night, Grace Foothills is offering a class on Galatians, a letter that the Apostle Paul wrote a group of 1st century Christians who confused religion with the gospel.  It will be an awesome class!

“When, from time to time, someone appeared who understood and proclaimed the genuine message of Galatians, he was liable to be denounced as a subversive character—as, indeed, Paul was in his own day. But the letter to the Galatians, with its trumpet call to Christian freedom, has time and again released the true gospel from the bonds in which well-meaning but misguided people have confined it so that it can once more exert its emancipating power in the life of mankind, empowering those who receive it to stand fast in the freedom with which Christ has set them free.”
-F.F. Bruce
