"Saddened" by Piper Article
I love John Piper. I love him as a brother in Christ, and I love his ministry and his effort at helping us understand the greatness and grace of our mighty, glorious, just, loving, merciful, constant, sovereign and holy God. But I lost a little bit of respect for him today. Read the article he wrote which was published in today's Christianity Today newsletter to see why. You can read the plethora of responses, including mine (the majority of which also express "sadness") below the article, which elaborate on the disappointment incited by the article. If Dr. Piper was so humble and Christ-like as to submit a written apology available to the readers of his original article, a measure of respect will be restored. He has, however, unfortunately revealed a piece of his theology which is nevertheless troublesome.
