(Capstone Report) Did I promote blasphemy when I voted for Mitt Romney?

Did I promote divorce when I supported Ronald Reagan?

Evangelical Elites have a new standard in their attempt to keep conservative voters at home: to vote for Donald Trump is to endorse his immorality, they claim. All of it.

John Piper is the latest preacher to show a lack of moral judgment. He opined against developing a moral calculus that one party might be better than another party.

He writes, “I will not develop some calculus to determine which path of destruction I will support. That is not my duty. My calling is to…

  1. Just another example of an insufferable modern elitist evangelical High Priest. The oligarchs know that it is the evangelicals that give Trump his edge in the elections, and by weakening that base just a little, the country can be safely in the hands of the pro-death and anti-freedom technocrats. What men like Piper are doing here is insiduously evil.

  2. I can’t help but think that there’s some personal reason or sin in Piper’s background or life that cause men like this and other compromisers to want to subject our country to more authoritarian rule than we have been subjected to since last spring, especially in states like California, Michigan, Illinois, and New York — all Democrat-controlled states that will overwhelmingly vote for Joe Biden.

    If Piper believes he has to pay a penance, then he should go join the Roman church since he has already made some pronouncements that make it seem like he does believe in mixing works with grace, yet claims to be reformed.

    The Democrats are so bold that they tell us what they’re going to do to us and yet people apparently want it and apparently don’t want to have the responsibility that comes with freedom.

    That’s why I think sometimes that we essentially are slaves and remain so. It all depends on who are master is. The Bible certainly gives credence to this given the sinful nature we’re born into.

    I recall the old Bob Dylan song from 1979 called “you Gotta serve somebody.” The famous line from it is:” it might be the devil or it might be the Lord, but you gotta serve somebody.”

  3. Hey Piper, we’re electing a president, not a Pope or spiritual guide, and one candidate clearly promotes a more biblical worldview much more than the other.
    Your lack of discernment – or even common sense – is alarming.

  4. If one is given to believe what Yehovah God say’s in His Holy Word on the matter. It does not matter if one ‘votes’ or not as pertaining to who will be put in the seat of power.

    Dan 4:17 This matter [is] by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.
    Key point ……BASEST of men!!!

  5. Anyone remember when Piper was a fan of foul mouthed, pompous, at -that- time Reformed preacher called Driscoll?

    1. Trump has his faults, but he is preferable over the other candidate.

      If you intend to prevent the worst from happening, abstaining from voting is not an option, when you recall that during the 2012 presidential elections, many Republicans were not happy with Mitt Romney and simply did not vote at all, which in turn simply lead to a default victory for Obama then.

      1. You would be correct, I will not be voting.
        Lu 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

        1. The fact of the matter is, at a practical level, not voting effectively means supporting whoever the majority else wants as leader.

          And as far as I can recall, whilst God is sovereign, at some level there is always human responsibility to do the right thing. The two go together (or meant to be) in the Bible. If I recall correctly:
          1. In the Bible, it was God’s desire for the Israelites to settle in ancient Israel, but first the Israelites will have to fight off the existing inhabitants of the land and when they refused, God had no other choice but to banish them to the wilderness for forty years.
          2. In the book of Judges, God has to rescue the Israelites from their own apostasy and enemy attacks multiple times, but He had to do it with human leaders such as Ehud, Gideon etc. Suppose Ehud and co. were not interested?
          3. Most recently, you may recall the successful release of Pastor Brunson from Turkish incarceration. Whilst on one level that would be an answer to concern Christians’ prayers and God’s act, it was also undoubtedly the result of negotiations between Turkey and the Trump administration, human-level activities in other words.

      2. Dan 4:17 This matter [is] by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.
        Key point ……BASEST of men!!!

      3. Jer 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed [be] the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.

  6. Piper’s book Christian Hedonism was first published in 1986 That is 34 years ago. That is how long he has been writing and preaching false doctrines. Yet, all this while, he’s had a free passes from the evangelical world. People fawn over him; practically hang on his every word. The word for this is idolatry. It’s a personality worship. Piper speaks from the sides of his mouth. At least now he’s coming out into the open, and not just he. Many others are declaring their hands, and the discerning are being vindicated after many years and decades of having to just suck it up and be labelled divisive or judgmental. I’ve never bought into Piper’s vain philosophies. I marked and avoided him long ago.
