#282 Desiring God’s Works Salvation and Racist Identity Politics with Lecrae

On tonight’s programme we look at the mounting evidence against John Piper and Desiring God with the recently published article by desiringGod.org writer Greg Morse, which declares: “But what about being saved by faith alone? You’re not.” When it was posted on twitter it included the note: “You’re not saved through faith alone. Be killing your sin.” We also look at Lecrae and Piper’s Racial Identity Politics. Does it divide the Church?

#281 John Piper’s Corruption of the Gospel

In a recent article John Piper stated: “we should not speak of getting to heaven by faith alone in the same way we are justified by faith alone.” Has he compromised the gospel? Is it similar to the errors of Norman Shepherd? What did godly Reformed men of the past say on the error taught by Shepherd, and what should be the message to Piper and others like him today? What are the consequences of the Reformed community ignoring modern errors on justification by faith alone?

#279 More Rick Warren Ecumenism with Rome and Modern Protestantism’s Anti-Reformation Theology

Recently Crux, a Roman Catholic website, interviewed both Rick Warren and Roman Catholic Bishop Kevin Vann of Orange County, California. What did the interview reveal? Should we be concerned over Rick Warren? Do respected pastors see him as a faithful preacher of the Word of God? We also take a brief look at the ‘Reforming Catholic Confession’ which was signed by over 250 professing Protestant leaders. What does the document, and the men involved, tell us about how the Reformation is viewed some 500 years later?

#204 Are You a Calvinist in Theory, but an Arminian in Practice?

Are we consistent with our profession of the Reformed Faith? Is the New Calvinism of men like John Piper helping the spread of Reformed Theology, or hindering it? Why do so many Reformed Baptists look to an Arminian like Michael Brown who led the so-called Brownsville Revival? Are the New Calvinists abusing Christian Liberty? What is Christian Liberty? Should we every joke about predestination, or things pertaining to the providence of God? Where does the modern professing Reformed movement need to repent?
