Rather than step in and suggest Driscoll re-think real marriage, as he did when he called Pastor Mark to account for his use of expletives, Piper chooses rather to manufacture a foundation for Driscoll’s MMA vision of Jesus for modern Christianity. Who will hold Piper to account for sloppy theology?
I first read of Piper’s words while traveling. My schedule did not allow time to put together my own thoughts. Maybe I will get to it this week. However, I may not be able to surpass Emily’s attention to Piper’s premises (Part 2). Rachel Held Evans has already put together her favorite responses by male bloggers.
You can be sure once a person or persons believe they have reached a particular status in Christendom they will happily hold others to account. But, again, who will hold them to account for sloppy theology?
