How stark is the contrast between John Piper and the sin-enabling pastors of the ELCA, UCC, and United Methodist snyods/churches who oppose the marriage amendment and approve gay marriage.
Piper concluded by saying, "If the whole counsel of God is preached with power week in and week out, Christians who are citizens of heaven and citizens of this democratic order will be energized as they ought to speak and act for the common good."
If this is what "opting out of the marriage fight" looks like, let's hope and pray that countless pastors across the country opt out as John Piper has.

Thanks for posting this article. The original news left me very disheartened.
I’m happy to find out they were lying through their teeth.

Wow! Pastor Piper’s language sounds so strange because nearly all of us have been immersed in the unavoidable culture of political correctness to some degree for so long.
It almost sound like a foreign tongue, but a beautiful one.
