Again, Confirmation that John Piper Is A Cancer for Christianity

Joh 7:24 Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment."

At this year's Desiring-I-Don't-Know-What-Kind-of-God Conference will be none other than the heretical Douglas Wilson. He's the one who teaches Federal Vision heresy. Piper continues to befriend and defend the enemy of the Gospel of Christ Jesus.

Trinity Foundation states about Federal Vision:

....The Federal Vision brazenly defends justification by works; universal covenant grace to every child of believing parents, if not to every person sprinkled with water in the name of the triune God; an election unto grace that fails to save; baptismal regeneration; and the falling away of many who were once united to Christ. Among the authors are Steve Wilkins, John Barach, Rich Lusk, Peter J. Leithart, Steve Schlissel, James Jordan, and Douglas Wilson.

The movement that calls itself the “federal vision” teaches justification by the obedience of the sinner. “The presuppositions undergirding Paul’s statement [in Romans 2:13] include the facts that the Law is ‘obeyable,’ that truly responding to the Law (the Word) in faith does justify” (Schlissel, 260).

The “federal vision” teaches that the saving grace of God in Christ is universal within the sphere of the covenant, but that this grace can be resisted and lost. Everyone who is baptized, particularly every child of believing parents who is baptized, is savingly united to Christ, although many later fall away and perish....

The movement teaches baptismal regeneration. The ceremony of sprinkling with water in the name of the triune God effects the temporary regeneration and salvation of everyone baptized.

The heresy of the “federal vision” is deep and broad. It penetrates to the heart of the Gospel, and it extends to all the doctrines of grace. It can be refuted and rooted out only by the doctrine of a covenant of unconditional, particular grace. And this is why the Presbyterian and Reformed churches where the heresy is boldly taught are both unwilling and unable to resist it.

End quote.

In the recent past, Piper has had cussing and foul-mouthed "pastors" like Mark Driscoll and Paul Tripp also at the DIDKWKOG Conference. All of this is, I believe, the fruit of Piper's "hedonistic Christianity" and its bearing putrid and poisonous fruit.

Biblical doctrine is optional, like: no cussing, no course jesting and sexual talk, justification by faith alone, believer's baptism, just to name a few. No folks, to Piper and most self-proclaimed Reformers, its all just optional. And with Piper being the Pied Piper, his fans follow in his footsteps, linking to these men he bodly offers them.

I know of but ONE WAY to be justified and ONE WAY to be saved: by grace through faith in Christ alone. Any other way is damnable. But apparently, to so many Reformers, its just a matter of personal opinion, which is why they are embracing Federal Visionism and Romanism (FV is a form of Romanism). Such people are going back to their mother, the Roman Catholic Church, which was NEVER reformed (how can you reform that which is dead?).

Eph 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not become partners with them;

Is. 8 20 To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.

Do not be deceived: "Bad company ruins good morals." (1Co 15:33)

2Jo 1:7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8 Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward.

Allow me to end with a quote from Spurgeon (whom these Reformers love to claim):

Excerpts from Spurgeon's "War! War! War!" : (You won't hear the likes of Piper, Driscoll, Sproul, or any of the other Reformers say such things about the RCC):

"I am astonished, and yet more astonished when I come to turn it over, at the want of earnestness that there is in the Protestantism of the present age. How do you imagine that Cardinal Wiseman pays for all his splendours, and that the Romish church is supported? Fools and slow of heart, ye find them much of their wealth. If he is to preach in any place, who is it that crowds the chapel full, and pays for admission? The Protestants; and the Protestantism of England is the pay-master of the Pope. I am ashamed that sons of the Reformers who have Smithfield still in their midst unbuilt upon, should bow themselves before the beast, and give so much as a single farthing to the shrine of the devil's firstborn son. Take heed to yourselves, ye Protestants, lest ye be partakers of her plagues; touch her not, lest ye be defiled. Give a drachm to her, or a grain of incense to her censors, ye shall be partakers of her adulteries and partakers of her plagues. Every time you pass the house of Popery let a curse light upon her head: Thus saith the Lord:—"Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities."

I've watched a couple videos of Piper and didn't like him ... don't know why? Maybe doctrine?

While I guess Piper is right on some doctrine, what bothers me is that he seems man-centered and seems to go by emotions and relationships rather than Truth (his defense of his buddies like Driscoll, Tripp, and Wilson). So things he SAYS he holds to, doesn't hold much water since his ACTIONS speak louder than his words. Maybe "hypocrisy" is the thing that causes us to be uncomfortable....

Wow, "cancer for Christianity", "enemy of the Gospel of Christ Jesus"? Won't there be some shock when God tells them "Well done, my good and faithful servant."

Then He'll look at you and say, "Get over it. Are you coming in or not?"

Colin,

"Pastors" who invite the wolves into the sheep pen are cancerous; they are siding with the enemy and not protecting the sheep. Instead, they are erroding the faith of some by exposing them to such deadly error. False doctrine IS deadly, and woe to the pastor through whom it comes.

Mat 18:6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.

Rom 16:17 I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. Rom 16:18 For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.



Jud 1:4 For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.


2Jo 1:9 Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 2Jo 1:10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, 2Jo 1:11 for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.
