What makes God look Glorious?
This video clip is John Piper at his God-given best: Strong, profound, pastoral and devastatingly simple.
These three minutes settle the matter for me: I will not give ground to the prosperity gospel, and I will speak openly against it. There is too much at stake. The alternative life (suffering in and for Christ) has a Power that the proponents of the prosperity gospel cannot and will not understand.
(Warning: there is a profoundly sad story mentioned at 1:30, for the sensitive).
