I just read this article by Dan Phillips on the Christian academic and the way Christians seem to have placed them outside the reach of biblical standards. I have been thinking much about this whole issue especially with the recent demise of Mark Driscoll. There are so many of these rock star/movie star pastors and scholars around who are living a pretty comfortable life on the backs of the average ordinary Christian and they can do what they want since they have a name attached to their ministry that cannot be questioned.
I would like to hear your thoughts on this subject. Please take the time to read the article and post in our comments section. What kind of witness and effect has the modern day “big name preacher” had on the church as a whole? Is this really what Christianity is about?
