An honest look at the Prusit of Joy

From: John Piper on happiness, Christianity in America and fasting from preaching Here are 2 quotes of John’s in this article that are especially encouraging to me: “Christians care about all suffering, especially eternal suffering” …[Christians] should not define happiness as the kind of breezy, light, superficial, smiley-faced, praise-God-anyhow, that gives the impression to others that they don’t know suffering, and that they are hypocritical and superficial.  That is the danger I fear when you ask it, should they be a happy person.  I would want to say they should be the person who looked like they maintain a sweet contented disposition when

Hardly a year goes by without some conference on the future of the evangelical church somewhere having at least one speaker, or sometimes even a slate of speakers, who arguably represent precisely the kind of theology that has emptied pews, castrated preaching, and disemboweled commitment to the gospel. He goes on to give several

God’s Ultimate Motivation

I really enjoyed meditating on God’s ultimate motivation this morning from Justin Taylor’s blog. For my name’s sake I defer my anger, for the sake of my praise I restrain it for you, that I may not cut you off. Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for my own sake, I do it, for how should my name be profaned? My glory I will not give to another. —Isaiah 48:9-11 see also
