I think Driscoll has a point, but honestly I wish men would be willing to speak plainly, much less speak with pointed vituperation. One reason why the prophets could speak with force was because the possessed the truth, but I fear that many men who would speak with force may bluster in ignorance and lose the Biblical point.

In other words, in matters where the truth is plain, let us speak plainly, and in the face of obstinacy, speak with vituperation. But if we speak not from faith and firm conviction in the truth, our words are best made in humility.

I wonder if Driscoll will contextualize the issue with regard to knowledge?
