Commendable Perspectives

Filed under: Bibliophilia, Destined to get me in trouble

As you loyal readers (both of you) know, I haven’t written much lately, whether on this site or any other. The reason is that I have discovered that many of the things I would say are very often better said by other people, and my greatest service to you would be to direct you to them. When John the Baptist instructed his followers to follow Jesus instead, he was doing them the greater service than if he had merely tried to poach Jesus’ sermons and pass them off as his own.

With that in mind, I commend to you Tom Chantry’s blog, chantrynotes. He writes from a Reformed Baptist perspective, and as a Baptist myself, I find his critiques and observations especially apt. As I always say, I never give an unqualified endorsement; but Chantry usually does a good job.

In particular, I commend this particular article, where the author rightly points out that John Piper’s evident lack of stability and consistency is symptomatic of an utter lack of discernment. He has no ability to tell the moral worth of anything beyond the theological categories yucky and yummy. Chantry has it right.
