John Piper and affections

leave a comment »

We previously mentioned Paul Helm’s recent articles on Jonathan Edwards and religious affections. In a new article, Helm connects some of the same critiques to John Piper and his doctrine of “Christian hedonism.” Sometimes Calvinistic Christians can be tempted to accept everything they hear from their “Young, Restless, Reformed” celebrities. Helm sounds an important warning. Find his article here.

More on revival

leave a comment »

D.G. Hart states more succinctly some of the concerns expressed in the previous post. Here’s the link to the full article.

Here are his main points:

1. Revivalism is anti-formal.
2. Revivalists disregard the importance of the sacraments.
3. Revivalism cultivates an appetite for the extraordinary in matters of devotion.
4. Revivalists don’t know what to do with the children of the covenant.
