JOHN PIPER ON MINIMIZING DOCTRINE


I think John Piper put it best in his book, Contending For Our All. He wrote:


"To the emerging church that would like to minimize doctrine, Athanasius would say, 'Our young people in Alexandria die for doctrine about Christ. What do your young people die for?' Athanasius would have grieved over statements like 'It is Christ who unites us; it is doctrine that divides.' He would have grieved because he knew this is the very tactic used by Arian bishops to cover the councils with fog so that the word Christ could mean anything. They think they have done something profound and fresh, when they call us away from doctrine. In fact, they have done something very old and worn and deadly."


(John Piper. From a sermon by Mark Connelly, The Deity of Christ, 8/24/2011)
