I’m cool with the video and find it more helpful than the leadership conferences Hybels hosts with the likes of Jimmy Carter, Colin Powell, and other “leaders”.  With all due respect to such leaders, should I as a pastor turn to them for pastoral insight? Perhaps I could learn some leadership skills, whatever. Sigh. Anyhow, for Bill Hybels to ban the distrbution of this short flick that Driscoll put together as a resource for pastors, after being told to do the job, but on the otherhand for Hybels to have welcomed the likes of Bill Clinton in his pulpit seems to be a bit odd. With all due respect to Bill Hybels, this whole thing is WHACK!!! Disagree with Driscoll, but don’t ban the distribution of a resource that the 1500 in attendance would have actually wanted. I didn’t know that the likes of Hybels contended so vigurously for his theological convictions so as to not let others decide for themselves if they found this video helpful. If only Hybels cared about Christology as much as females in ministry, then maybe he would ban so-called secular “leaders” from his conferences.

    I like what I heard here. I think he’s right that the “war” can not be won without men. Further, shouldn’t we be more concerned about young men falling away from the church only to flounder around in the world – isn’t what Christ offers us superior to what the world offers? Maybe the negative reaction to this video is fueled by fear of asserting male leadership?

    I think it was a strong message. Every preacher has his own style of preaching. I am happy that I have many great pastors to listen to because they all balance me out:) The key is not to take the bait of offense in any one talk. Thank you all, Bill Hybels, Mark Driscoll, Craig Groeschel, Perry Noble and Steve Furtick just to name a few!
