New Piper

So, my Dad bought me the new Piper book, "Finally Alive." So far the intro has been awesome. Piper after giving some stats from the Barna Group about the indistinguishableness of non-christians from "born again" Christians says,
"I want to say loud and clear that when the Barna Group uses the term born again to describe American church-goers whose lives are indistinguishable from the world and who sin as much as the world, and sacrifice for others as little as the world, and embrace injustice as readily as the world, and covet things as greedily as the world, and enjoy God-ignoring entertainment as enthusiastically as the world-when the term born again is used to describe these professing christians, the Barna Group is making a profound mistake."

Time to self-examine.
