Mark Driscoll on Denominations

I have long been aware that we are living in a post-denominational age. I think Driscoll is right and that networks (local or international) have displaced denominational loyalties for many.

Driscoll really bus me. I agree with his assessment that denominational loyalties are in decline, it has been like that for a long while now. But it sounds like he is mourning this and looking to introduce another denominational structure on top to the existing affiliations (networks). The deeper problem is that we don't know how to deal with the tension of diversity, that is a particularily North American problem. We really like to compartmentalize to protect our claims of truth. It isn't surprising that denominations have lost their meaning for us. The problem isn't the liberals holding conservatives hostage - it is that we can't seem to have liberals and conservatives living out of their common love for God.
