John Piper Responds!

May 20, 2009

Interesting is the only word I can find. I’ve read MacArthur’s perspective. I understand it. I have heard Piper’s response.  I understand it. Where do I stand? (Like it matters.) I’m taking a middle ground. I think Driscoll should publically repent of doing a few things. By that I mean stand in the pulpit and appolgize for his lack of holiness in preaching and HSAT dust off and move on with more respect to the power of language. Abdicate the pulpit? Perhaps temporarily to wrestle with the Lord in the matters of the tongue.

Let me say. I am not perfect. I let drop words unbecoming of a Christian more often than I like in my personal life. I see the plank in my own eye and am praying and working for growth.

HSAT myself…

HERE is where the audio can be found.

There is no danger of irrelevant doctrine; the real threat is an undoctrinal attempt at relevance.

Most people lack true repentance. They lack the true contrition, the true brokenness. They are void of urgent desperation. They don’t have a true relationship to Jesus Christ. They just “hang around” Jesus… And they do not know what it means to bow to that which is eternal. To be concerned about that.
They want a gospel that doesn’t ask for repentance. They want a gospel that has no threats. They want a gospel that allows them to have some superficial attachment to Jesus, but not a bowing to His absolute sovereignty at any cost. They want a gospel that fixes them in this world to make them more comfortable. That’s not it. And that’s not what Jesus offers.
