Well, I should have known better. John Piper backpedaled so fast on his statement concerning the Roman Catholic Church that he could be a new source of energy. He backpedaled so fast that he could have won the Tour de France on a unicycle.
Apparently he is trying to preempt a possible or expected incoming attack on his use of the word “heresy.” Blaming the fluidity of the definition of heresy and the possibility of God being able to save individuals with a skewed or errant view of salvation, he is making room for the salvation of Roman Catholics within their own doctrinal scheme.
I probably should not have quoted Piper in yesterday’s post. Over the last two or three years I have become increasingly skeptical of Piper as a valid scriptural precisionist. I have come to remove any reference of him and his works from my blog and no longer recommend him as a source of valid theology.
So, dear readers, please accept my apology for including Piper as a source for yesterday’s post. I shall not make that mistake again, Lord willing. I should have quoted Al Mohler.
