Mark Driscoll on Sin and Repentance
I really was challenged watching a recent video podcast from Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill, Seattle. In his message "John The Baptizer - Part 2" he says this, "Our sin is worse than we think. It is so bad that God, Jesus, had to die for it. If it was important enough for Jesus to die for it then we need to put it to death...If Jesus died for that sin, then that sin must die. Can't just wound it. Have to kill it. Repentance is the putting to death of sin...Because it killed Jesus."
You don't hear a lot of Christian leaders making such biblical statements anymore. Thank God for Pastor Mark.
