My main criticism of Driscolls' comments come from his attitude towards single men. You get the impression that he feels that if you're not married by about 22, you're automatically a slacker along the lines of a Seth Rogan. I find this both inaccurate & insulting.

I also believe that the way that he explains away Paul's teaching re singleness in 1 Corinthians 7 - that it was situation specific due to the persecution the Corinthian church was under, is wrong. There is no evidence from either 1 or 2 Corinthians or Acts 18 that the Corinthian church was under persecution at the time that Paul wrote his letters. I'm thus forced to conclude that Driscoll's teaching of singleness has come not from the Bible, but from trying to sanctify his own experience.
