Thoughts about things on the web

I guess it isn’t surprising that any action brings about a reaction!

Pastor Rick Warren at Saddleback Church.

Here I’m thinking of Rick Warren and his “feel good” and purposeful Christianity bringing about this kind of reaction:

Yet his (Mark Driscoll) message seems radically unfashionable, even un-American: you are not captain of your soul or master of your fate but a depraved worm whose hard work and good deeds will get you nowhere, because God marked you for heaven or condemned you to hell before the beginning of time.

Here is how the headline reads in the NY Magazine section this morning:

Who Would Jesus Smack Down?

Mark Driscoll whom conservatives call “the cussing pastor.”

Gosh, I prefer my own beliefs without any religious notions or convictions, as in “Buddhism without beliefs” by Stephan Batchelor. They can keep Driscoll. I don’t buy any part of his hard nosed message!
