This shows how controversial and important issues about the Holy Spirit’s work are.
As reported earlier, Mark Driscoll (a continuationist) decided to crash John Macarthur’s Strange Fire conference to pass out his new book defending continuationism.
Subsequently, Driscoll tweeted that his books were confiscated by church security.
However, others who witnessed the event reported the truth:
Mark Driscoll openly lies about what happened at his publicity stunt at Strange Fire.
The director of the conference explained to Driscoll that those who are distributing books have gone through an extensive process and that they’d like him not to distribute them. After continuing to direct attendees to take the books, security offered to help him take the books back to his car. Driscoll insisted multiple times, “No, they’re my gift to Grace Church. I want you to have them.” After insisting that security not help him with the books back to the car, the conference director accepted the gift and brought them to GCC offices.
That’s what happened. Driscoll’s reporting of it in such a way is nothing short of lying, absolutely shameful, and unbefitting of one who would take upon himself the calling of preaching the Truth.
