  1. Dear Michael:

    I just listened to your podcast about Mark Driscoll and some of the comments I have made concerning him. Though I like much of what Mark does and he is a gifted communicator, there are some valid issues that need to be addressed.

    I do have an idea for you if you would so consider: I do believe in good, sound dialogue and interaction between those of varying opinion within evangelicalism. We all don’t talk enough with and to each other in differing Christian circles. In that spirit and to start to close the gulf that exists between many of us, would you be interested to interview me for one of your podcast broadcasts so that we can converse about some of these things and the questions you have raised?

    I certainly haven’t arrived in my walk with the Lord; I am teachable and do appreciate hearing someone else’s side of this issue and if I am wrong, I would gladly repent of anything that I have said that is not consistent with the Word of God or truthful about another.

    I do thank you in advance for your kind consideration to the above request and may the Lord continue to honor your faithfulness to Christ and His truth.

    Grace and peace,
    Steve Camp
    2 Cor. 4:5-7

  2. Steve,

    Thanks for your gracious reply. I don’t have the ability to do phone interviews on my podcast.

    I will offer you either of the following response options.

    1) I’ll be happy to print an unedited post from you at IM. (A 3 page limit would be fair.)

    or

    2) If you would like to send me an mp3 of you responding, I’ll be happy to run it on my podcast. 10-15 minutes would be fair.

    Thanks again. As I said in the podcast, I have great respect for you and your ministry. Our disagreements would pale in comparison to what we both find and believe in Jesus.

  3. With all the mud slinging that seems so prevalent in the blogdom it really does my heart good to see these comments. Michael the last sentence in your comment sums it up the best, it’s just a shame that all too often we focus on the differences instead of the similarities. I understand that this is a simplistic view, but still, how much more would we glorify Our God if we were to find unity with one another.

    Romans 15:5May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, 6so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  4. Excellent podcast Michael. In this instance, I think Steve Camp should “shut up and sing”. I don’t know if it’s jealousy or simple self-righteousness, but it’s a sad commentary on us when we get so upset about simple language. Steve, if it makes you feel uncomfortable to use the same language as Mark Driscoll, don’t use it, but for God’s sake, have some respect and can the critical spirit. Who cares if you think he is the premire youth pastor in the U.S. I was a youth pastor for 15 years and happen to believe some of the finest kingdom work is accomplished through some edgy youth pastors. Steve, let it go, he’s not your servant and he doesn’t answer to you! Please let his elders do the rebuking, no one gave you that job!

    I have always respected Steve Camp, and still do, but I think he’s way off on this one! Now, I am going to go and crack open a fine Northwest Hoppy Ale and drink to both Steve Camp’s and Mark Driscoll’s continued kingdom work!

  5. “Steve Camp should “shut up and sing”… jealousy or simple self-righteousness… Steve, let it go, he’s not your servant and he doesn’t answer to you! Please let his elders do the rebuking, no one gave you that job!”

    Now, I ask you, just WHO is it that needs to “can the critical spirit”?

  6. If you have your doctrine straight, and you’re preaching the Gospel, I’m going to support you.

    Isn’t that kinda what Paul was saying in 1 Corinthians 3 ?
