Beware False Teachers with Good Doctrine and Bad ... | Christianity Today  The author of this article says that Mark Driscoll “denies the full humanity of women in both word and deed, advocates for profane views of gender and sex, rages with unrepentant pride, engages in habitual self-promotion, and manipulates and abuses others. Why, then, for so long was he able to avoid being denounced as a false teacher?  My answer: because maybe he doesn’t really do any of that stuff.  Actually read his books and watch his videos and not just take a few items of context.  Christianity Today is wobbly at best in being conservative.  Frequently it is just downright liberal.
