Following John Piper’s return from sabbatical two weeks ago (080606) he preached this message on Luke 18.
Piper passionately takes aim at the increasingly popular trend in evangelicalism to abandon the necessity of the righteousness of Christ. He concludes that if you abandon Christ’s righteousness and truly believe this theology then you are going to hell. I highly recommend that you listen.
This is a passionate and biblical sermon from a guy who loves Jesus and his cross work. It sounds like Piper has been holding his breath for 10 weeks only to exhale during the sermon.
A couple of great sound bytes:
“You must read the gospels backwards”
“Every command of Jesus has blood all over it”
“That ought to scare the hell out of you…literally!”
