John Piper’s Unqualified Endorsement of C.J. Mahaney Breaks Hearts
“I am compelled to regard the growing tendency in our day to disregard basic human rights in the interests of an all-powerful state as being at bottom nothing in the world but a reversion to savagery.” -J. Gresham Machen, 1933
I am compelled to regard the growing tendency in our day to disregard any display of concern and compassion for the victims of sexual abuse in our churches by wolves masquerading as Christian leaders as being at bottom nothing in the world but a display of savagery.” -Todd Wilhelm, 2013
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.” (1 Corinthians 13:1-8, ESV)
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.”
