Edit: I just found John Piper’s personal reaction to the video in question. For those of you who were offended by it, I have been told that part of your reasoning was that it disrespected a godly man and did nothing to point us to the gospel. Because most of you still have not contacted me personally, I cannot interact with you personally about it. However, I would like to post John Piper’s personal reaction from his own website to the video here. Just so you know, they do play an audio clip of the video in this mp3 file.
Since we have had a few recent articles on sin, I thought you would all enjoy this video called, “John Piper Is Bad.”
Even though this video is humorous, it is a healthy reminder that none of us are righteous in and of ourselves. We are all basically bad. But God chooses to declare us righteous by the merits of Christ. During this week of thanksgiving, let’s remember what we should ultimately be thankful for–the gospel of Christ that declares sinners righteous.
