Prof. Stanley Hauerwas, from Duke Divinity School was succinct about his opinion of Furtick’s house. He told The Huffington Post, “It’s just vulgar. It’s an offense to the Gospel.”
I’ll say it: I’ve got a suspicion that when they asked Hauerwas for a quote about Furtick, he probably cursed a bit more than what they have here. I’m thinking he might have said something along the lines of, “that’s a load of shit,” or “that guy’s a piece of shit,” or “what an asshole.”
If you weren’t aware, Stanley Hauerwas likes to curse during lectures and interviews, and it’s something I love about him.
Because I do, it can be found here in his post entitled “The Sticky Issue of Moses’ Authorship.” Just when I think Driscoll can’t surprise me anymore, he pulls stuff like this.
“Man is not a being isolated from the rest of creation; by his very nature he is bound up with the whole of the universe… In his way to union with God, man in no way leaves creatures aside, but gathers together in his love the whole cosmos disordered by sin, that it may be transfigured by grace”
— St Maximus the Confessor
Beautiful words from the lectionary this week.
