Founder of Young, Restless, and Reformed Movement Trashes Calvinism as ‘Garbage’

One of the most notable problems within the Young, Restless, and Reformed (YRR) New Calvinist movement is the tendency to be tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine. In its endless pursuit of carnality, its adherents seek the applause of men and numbers by any means possible — even if it means denouncing it all together.

That’s exactly what the YRR founder, Mark Driscoll did. Driscoll, who is famous for his Elephant Room affirmation of the Trinity-denying heretic, T.D. Jakes and former council member of The Gospel Coalition (back when those pesky discernment bloggers were warning about him), recently renounced Calvinism, calling it “garbage.”

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore.

I don’t hold to the five points of Calvinism. I think it’s garbage, so blog about that, but anyways, because it’s not biblical.

He also says that Reformed Theology teaches that God is non-relational and “lives far away.” You can listen to his words in the video below:

Mark Driscoll, who spent his life at Mars Hill preaching and defending Calvinism, actually says that he doesn’t hold to the five points of Calvinism because they’re “garbage” and “not biblical.” What’s interesting is that his doctrinal shift (a term that keeps popping up lately) didn’t happen until his fall.

Driscoll was the founder of the megachurch, Mars Hill and after an investigation by the church leadership, it was found that Driscoll had been acting in ways inconsistent with the biblical model of the pastorate. Further, he had been accused of bullying his staff. After the church leadership attempted to implement a restoration plan for Driscoll, Driscoll decided instead to resign from his position and the church closed its doors.

It wasn’t long before Driscoll started making his comeback as he, like most fallen pastors, returned in the charismatic movement. Driscoll is now the pastor of Trinity Church in Phoenix, Arizona. With his face plastered all over the front page of the website, it’s safe to say that just like Mars Hill, once again, this church is all about him.
