For a fuller explanation of what this is about, go HERE. Basically, I am choosing to say something GOOD about a subject or people when it’s normally easy pickings for criticism. My aim is also to choose “opposites” on a given day. This is a personal project because I can be an “equal opportunity offender.” My goal now is to be an equal opportunity LIKER.
Rob Bell, emergent pastor.
John Piper, Reformed pastor.
Talk about two opposites! When just the clip of a video by Rob Bell promoting his new book Love Wins came out, John Piper tweeted: “Farewell, Rob Bell.” So, here we go.
Rob Bell is passionate about Jesus and compassionate toward people. I have watched several of his Nooma videos and I love his communication style. His heart for God really comes across in these videos.
John Piper is passionate about the glory of God. His book, Desiring God, is a top ten book of mine. The out and out zeal he has for proclaiming the glory of God is contagious.
These are just two things I LIKE about two very opposite men.
