Mark Driscoll has gone viral this year for his sermon series on Elijah which emphasizes that the demons in the Old Testament, namely the spirits of Jezebel and Ahab are active in present day. The Jezebel spirit as Driscoll teaches is sensual, domineering, and emasculating. The Ahab spirit is tolerant, passive, and weak in the face of evil. Mark Driscoll has written a book on his sermon series. On Sunday, Mark Driscoll announced that the book had been suspended from Amazon.

I co-wrote a book that called for treating the Covid criminals like we treated the Nazis at Nuremberg, and that didn't even get censored by Amazon.
