Piper has a lot of good orthodox teaching. Not heretical by any means and I wanted to leave him off the watch list as so many people I know follow him. However, if they thoughtfully reviewed this information they might turn elsewhere. Christianity is head, heart, and hands. Piper is all heart. His head decisions have not been the best. His advice on how to approach the culture has impacted the church’s ability to impact it.
Pipers charismatic leanings have him go sideways on his decision making. I am with Justin Peters on this one. He has staunchly defended false teachers such as Rick Warren and Mark Driscoll. The movement that has gripped his ministry is known as New Calvinism. New Calvinism is a form of seeker-friendly semi-reformed theology.
Piper is also an anti-Trumper. Christians hear me, vote for the President that best protects the right to freedom of religion. Between Trump and Biden there simply is no comparison to their religious freedom position. Biden is an anti Christian apostate and Piper pushed Christian votes toward that. One of the most short sighted things I have ever seen by a Christian in my entire life. I understand Trump had a false word of faith spiritual advisor. But c’mon as we look at Trump’s 4 years, without a doubt America was better off not only as a country, but the protection of religious liberty was increased.
For me, there are so many good Christian resources that don’t make these egregious leadership mistakes that I stopped listening to Piper.
