If you haven’t yet heard this audio clip from Fighting for the Faith you need to. It is possibly the most disturbing thing I’ve ever heard come out of a pastor’s mouth. Mark Driscoll talks about “blessed subtraction” and running people over with the Mars Hill bus.
Here is just a brief excerpt of what you’ll hear:
“Here’s what I’ve learned. You cast vision for your mission, and if people don’t sign up, you move on. You move on. There are people that are gonna die in the wilderness, and there are people that are gonna take the hill. That’s just how it is. Too many guys waste too much time trying to move stiff necked, stubborn, obstinate people. I am all about blessed subtraction. There is a pile of dead bodies behind the Mars Hill bus (chuckle), and by God’s grace, it’ll be a mountain by the time we’re done…. You either get on the bus, or you get run over by the bus. Those are the options.”
