I am not one to use my blog to stir up controversy…at least not on purpose. You’ll find cakes, cute stories about my kids, and my own random musings, but you will not find me intentionally being controversial.
When I recommended Dr. Piper’s article yesterday, it wasn’t so much to draw attention to the end of the article with his comments of concern with regard to something written about discerning the “voice of God”. I recommended it because of the compelling way with which he describes his encounter in God’s Word. It simply left me wanting to read scripture like he reads scripture. It gave me fresh faith for reading God’s Word.
I have no idea what the other guy said (beyond what was quoted) or even whether or not I agree or disagree (I never read his full article). So when I recommended Piper’s writing, please know that it was in no way a “stance” on an issue concerning how we hear God speak today. I hope we all agree that it is absolutely stunning that God would make Himself known to us through His infallible Word, and we have access to “His voice” every single day. Amazing. That’s all I meant by recommending the article.
