In Episode 108 I discuss a rather unfortunate comment made by Mark Driscoll several years ago about some of his hearers being matchsticks. I then examine writings of Martin Luther and John Calvin that could have contributed to Mark’s thought process. Finally, I examine how the idea of unconditional election played a role in shaping the Puritan’s views and treatment of Native Americans. You can hear Driscoll’s comment on human matchsticks on the podcast, The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill by Christianity Today.
