In what appears as another wave of controversy to sweep the Western Evangelical church, both Wright and Driscoll are again making headlines.
Wright: According to Adrian, the Presbyterian Church in America have recently concluded that Wright is Wrong, primarily because what he is suggesting is contrary to the Westminster Confession of Faith. To those that have read Wright, this comes as no real surprise. Wright is arguing for the reformed church to be always reforming, and if you reform something, its clearly not going to fit into what came before.
Driscoll is another chap that would repeat the mantra of Semper Reformanda, although perhaps he would see this reformission more in terms of methodology than theology. However, Mark has been causing waves again, this time by releasing a controversial and subsequently "banned" church planting video to be shown at the National New Church Conference (Florida, USA). According to Mark: "Apparently the video was shown at the event, was well received by the attendees, and then criticized by Bill Hybels from the stage.". Check out Mark's take on it, and be sure to watch the video! For an alternative view on the issue, check out Ben Arment's blog.
