Mark Driscoll on Revelation

'Sadly the book of Revelation has become the fishing pond for Christian wingnuts with an affinity for goofy charts and endless debates about the mark of the beast, who the Antichrist is, and whether or not locusts are really codeword for Blackhawk helicopters. Such people need new hobbies and the right medication. Revelation is a book about Jesus and emphatically declares that in the opening line of the book'. Vintage Jesus, p150.

This statement brought a smile to my face ...
