What Did Grand Rapids Do To John Piper?
Prominent pastor and Reformed theology meister John Piper recently was quoted in Christianity Today (Sept. 2006) as saying, "I think the criticism of Reformed theology is being silenced by the mission and justice and evangelism and worship and counseling. . . . We're not off in a Grand Rapids ghetto crossing our t's and dotting our i's and telling the world to get their act together."
Hmmm. . . . I work in a Grand Rapids ghetto. I mostly cross my t's and dot my i's, but am occasionally careless in this regard. BUT I don't tell the world to get its act together. Unless I'm driving. So what does that make me? Am I Reformable?
