(ChurchLeaders) Costi Hinn weighed in yesterday on pastor Mark Driscoll, who has been in the news again recently due to allegations of toxic leadership. Hinn, himself a pastor and ministry leader, pulled no punches in his comments, using words like “tyrant” and “abusive” in his description of Driscoll’s behavior.
“The human ego has an appetite like nothing else,” said Hinn in a Twitter thread on Aug. 11. “It doesn’t matter what theological camp it’s fed in, it wants to believe that it is the ‘best’ or ‘most’ of anything. Sometimes it’s loud and aggressive like Driscoll, & sometimes it’s quiet and passive. But the monster must eat.”
