Mark Driscoll, Carl Trueman and the Pope walk into a bar...

...someone is going to have to explain every part of this to me:

Please contact me when you have an explanation.

It's the Seattle version of "here I am Lord, Send Me."

Seattle by way of Rome, of course.

For starters, @CarlTruemanSpeaks ain't Carl Trueman.

A priest, a rabbi and a pastor walk into a bar. Suddenly, the priest stops the rabbi and says, "Hey, is this some kind of joke?"

Thank you Tom Chandry for the clarification! I did not know it was not the real Trueman. =)

Driscoll has a man crush on the pope?

1) As said, not the real Truman, just someone who thinks his wisdom and quotable quotables need to be disseminated via additional media. Possibly he's re-tweeting that because he thinks Trueman would hold it up as an example of things he's been warning about, such as celebrity pastors and empty-headed ecumenism.

2) It's also possible that it's just retweeted because it's Driscoll, and he could fart into a speech-to-text iPhone, tweet it, and it would get 35,000 retweets and 26,000 favorites. He may also have a new book out, although oddly nobody seems to mention that.

3) As to what the tweet from the pope means, maybe it's an expression of humility. You know, from a guy who claims final authority over the eternal state of countless souls, who pretends he can command Christ to be re-sacrificed at his whim, and who imagines his words to be authoritative over the word of God.

4) As to why Driscoll would retweet something like that - because the pope has a bigger church, so he's obviously fruitful, and Driscoll may be able to learn something from him. Duh.

Well... now that you explain it, it's so obvious.

LOL on #4, Trogdor.

Trogdor,

You've now shown us who can make the list for ER3, should i ever happen. Maybe they can get the current prophet for the LDS, too.
