Mars Hill Pastor to Debate Existence of Satan on ABC[url=http://www.christianpost.com/Education/General/2009/03/mars-hill-pastor-to-debate-existence-of-satan-on-abc-19/index.html]The Christian Post[/url](the first paragraph)Two controversial preachers, a former Las Vegas escort and an author on spirituality have been recruited by ABC to debate the existence of Satan on Friday. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
Arguing that the devil does exist will be Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church and Annie Lobert, founder of Hookers for Jesus.

Sadly this may be my last post here. The pride and disregard for other brothers and sisters is amazing.If you disagree with Driscoll on his ways of doing things, fine, to each their own. But the Christ of the Bible is being proclaimed and that is good.The fact that this will be on national television and that it makes Deepak Chopra look silly should be encouraging to us as well as he has represented himself as a Christian and many have bought into his lies in his books.I cannot believe the smug and arrogant attitude that has come across this place, maybe it was always here and when I was of the same mind, I was blind to it? Greg please check your heart before you spout off about these things. Love should be the primary thing and Driscoll is not a heretic as much as many here would like him to be.God's grace to you all.

Reading the linked article is difficult.How likely is it that the promoters of this show view it any different than as SPORT for financial gain. Who will be the advertisers?Consider that many of the Christian viewers are likely to be young in Christ with real spiritual needs. And for non-Christians, presenting the Christ of the Bible in such an Arena will require great maturity and great Grace.I guess listening to a recent posting on Martyrs in Rome has heightened my awareness of Christ being hated/mocked. I have confidence that God knows what He is doing/allowing to be done in this . (I will not be buying a television to see this.)
