This should be shouted from every pulpit....it's the number one problem in American evangelicalism, IMO.
I must of missed it from you first posting - first time I've seen it. Not too many persons speaking with conviction nowadays. Looks like evangelical's are loosening up as well. Piper using the word 'crap' was a bit surprising to this 'old' person (I'm in my forties). But that is what the prosperity gospel is, crap.
I try to imagine what it would have been like for Paul when he was in prison and chained to Roman guards. That is when you would really know that God is sufficient. But I give God glory for our soft lifestyle here in the U.S. I'm praising God that I can enjoy the good things He showers on me every day--food, clothing, shelter, no war going on in my neighborhood. We can learn to be content no matter what our circumstances.
Tony, I'm in my 50's and I LOVE IT that Piper said "crap".
