After publicly criticizing the ministry of megachurch pastor Joel Osteen, former Mars Hill Church lead pastor Mark Driscoll says the Lord has convicted him about his "sin" against the popular preacher and he's now seeking to make amends.
Driscoll, who resigned from the leadership of the Seattle-based Mars Hill Church last October amid controversy over his leadership style, was tackled about his criticism of Osteen during a recent interview with Hillsong Church's Brian Houston.
"I always had a huge personal problem with people doing that. People criticizing other pastors even though we are different on some issues. And Joel Osteen is a personal friend of mine and so again, one of the first things I knew about you was that you talked about Joel publicly. So when I first met you I was paranoid because the last thing I wanted was [inaudible] you speaking against me publicly," said Houston to a penitent Driscoll during the interview. more >>
