Driscoll Sermon: God is Creator

I have found pastor and author, Mark Driscoll of Seattle, WA an insightful voice in modern Evangelicalism.  Though he is controversial (and at times wrongly so), I find many of his writings and sermons very helpful and needed to be heard.  His series on Doctrine is an important series.  The third installment of that series regards creation.  This upcoming Sunday we will discuss and look at God as Creator and why it matters.  So in preparation consider some of the things presented in this sermon by Driscoll.

Here is the audio:

I will add to all of this that I am personally a young earth creationists ("I knew it, he was one of those!").  Driscoll and I disagree on this issue, but I will agree with Driscoll that one does not have to affirm young earth creationism (that the earth and universe is no more than 10,000 years old) to be a believer and affirm the gospel, but I would say that many of the other options (and Driscoll mentions many of them) are antithetical to the gospel.
