Piper on the Prosperity Gospel

December 22, 2007 — 1 Comment
I’m a huge John Piper fan. In fact I finished his “What Jesus Demands from the World” this past Wednesday – what a wonderful reflection on the words of Jesus in the Gospels. Piper’s passion for Christ is inescapable and God uses his words, more times than not, as a salve for my soul…and at times a scalpel.

Also, in our nation where most think of one church (I’ll let you guess…it’s not hard) when Houston is mentioned, let it be known that most of us haven’t swallowed the “Health & Wealth” Kool-Aid and have warned our flocks of this damning teaching. So while these words stand on their own, you could put my name (and a countless number of H-Town pastors) right there with Piper’s.
