John Piper – The supremacy of Jesus Christ


Seeing and Savoring the Supremacy of Jesus Christ Above All Things.
Passion 2012
January 1, 2012

By faith alone

Justified means that God declares you to be just in His sight by imputing to you the righteousness of Jesus.
And He does that by faith alone: “Since we have been justified by faith.”

Not by works.
Not by tradition.
Not by baptism.
Not by church membership.
Not by piety.
Not by parentage.
But by faith alone.

When we believe in Jesus as the Savior and the Lord and the supreme Treasure of our lives, we are united to Him and His righteousness is counted by God as ours.
We are justified by faith.

John Piper

Joel Osteen vs. Rick Warren on Prosperity Gospel

După Mark Driscoll vs. Joel Osteen  (AICI), în privinţa Evangheliei Prosperităţii, urmează Rick Warren vs. Joel Osteen.

Does God want us to be rich?
When I hear that word rich, I think people say, ‘Well, he’s preaching that everybody’s going to be a millionaire.’
I don’t think that’s it.
I preach that anybody can improve their lives.
I think God wants us to be prosperous.
I think he wants us to be happy. To me, you need to have money to pay your bills.
I think God wants us to send our kids to college.
I think he wants us to be a blessing to other people.
But I don’t think I’d say God wants us to be rich. It’s all relative, isn’t it?
Joel Osteen (Source)

This idea that God wants everybody to be wealthy?
There is a word for that: baloney. It’s creating a false idol.
You don’t measure your self-worth by your net worth.
I can show you millions of faithful followers of Christ who live in poverty.
Why isn’t everyone in the church a millionaire?
Rick Warren (Source)

Doctrine is useless if it is not accompanied by a holy life. It is worse than useless; it does positive harm.
