Captain Marvel: A Response to Desiring God

Site Logo

Today we will inaugurate a man to the presidency of the United States who is morally unqualified to be there. This is important to say just now because not to see it and feel it will add to the collapsing vision of leadership that enabled him to be nominated and elected.

Not only that, but if we do not see and feel the nature and weight of this sorrow, we will not know how to pray for his presidency or speak as sojourners and exiles whose pattern of life is defined in heaven, not by the mood of the culture.

So was Hillary Clinton because she approves of killing unborn children. Wayne Grudem, who finally advocated voting for Trump, wrote in October ,. There is no morally good presidential candidate in this election. It was his immoral action asserted in the talk. As I understand the role of leadership in high public office, these impenitent and boasted acts of immorality disqualify a person from office. A leader should lead. That is, he should set the pace, define the path, embody the vision and inspire emulation.

He himself should be what he is calling others to be. That is what it means to lead. Donald Trump is not such an embodiment of what we want the citizens of America to be.

In important ways, he is the opposite. A leader should be dependable, trustworthy, reliable. To invest someone with leadership is a trust. But Donald Trump treats language—the medium of truth—as a wax nose to be bent and molded to create a desired outcome, whether it corresponds to the truth or not. But where truth is treated with such indifference or contempt, the foundations of justice are crumbling.

There is no recourse for the poor if the powerful say that truth is what they say it is. A leader should be a good example for our young people in matters of character and moral uprightness and civility. Few parents would say to their young people: Strive to be like Donald Trump. That is a great sadness. A leader should not model the success of immoral behavior , and thus further destigmatize and normalize evils which, if spread, will bring discredit and ruin to our nation. A leader should be known for the virtues that make a republican form of government possible.

Virtually all the founding fathers agreed that without a virtuous people, the rule of law and of representative self-government will not survive. Because I regard these as qualifying marks of leadership in public office, I regard Donald Trump as not qualified for the presidency. This is not surprising from a Christian point of view. The Christian faith was born, and has flourished, under regimes less qualified to lead than Donald Trump.

The murderous Herod Matthew The movement that Jesus Christ unleashed in the world, when he died and rose again, does not depend on qualified human government for its existence or power. The linking of the Christian church with the ruling political regime is not essential to the life and fruitfulness of Christian faith. On the contrary, such linking has more often proven to corrupt the essential spirit of Christ, who typically uses the weak things of the world to shame the strong 1 Corinthians , and whose life-saving weapons do not consist in media monopolies, commanding wealth or civil laws.

Followers of Christ are not Americans first. Our first allegiance is to Jesus, and then to the God-inspired word of Scripture, the Bible. This is our charter, not the U. Let us pray that God would grant the gift of repentance 2 Timothy to Donald Trump and all those in authority.

Let us worship together in beautiful diversity and harmony with reverence and awe Hebrews And let us work with all our might 1 Corinthians Let us not exhaust ourselves bemoaning a Trump presidency. There are peoples whose privileges of prosperity and possibility are vastly inferior to ours. Having been so loved by God to receive the gospel, we are debtors to them Romans Do not think of the molehill of moral and social disadvantages of a Trump presidency.

Think of the Himalayan mountain range of blessings we have in Christ. Let this put fire in our bones for what matters most: the salvation of the world. Sign in. Log into your account.

John Piper: How to Live Under a Trump Presidency

Today we will inaugurate a man to the presidency of the United States who is morally unqualified to be there. This is important to say just now because not to see it and feel it will add to the collapsing vision of leadership that enabled him to be nominated and elected. Not only that, but if we do not see and feel the nature and weight of this sorrow, we will not know how to pray for his presidency or speak as sojourners and exiles whose pattern of life is defined in heaven, not by the mood of the culture.

We want to provide valuable resources for you to grow deeper in your walk with the Lord. We pray that these books, blogs, podcasts, lock screens and other resources are a blessing to you in your relationship with the Lord. We were created to be well-watered women who live the abundant life Christ came to give us Isaiah , John

After seeing the argument, I put out a call on Twitter to the men of the Christian faith to name the women who have led and theologically shaped them throughout their lives. I expected a handful of men to respond, but the outpouring of examples of godly women was overwhelming. At every single crossroad of my life, I've had a woman there walking me through it. Every single time I've hit the depths I've had gracious leaders helping me find clarity.

Should Women Preach? – A Response to John Piper’s “Desiring God” Blog

She is not a prostitute. She doesn't have a shady past. Yet when millions of Christians listen to her story this coming Sunday in church, they are likely to hear their preachers describe her in just those terms. Her story is told in the fourth chapter of the Gospel According to John. She is a Samaritan woman who Jesus encounters by a well. Jews and Samaritans don't get along, and women and men in this culture generally keep a safe social distance from each other. So she is doubly surprised when Jesus asks her for a drink. When she makes a remark to that effect, he offers her living water.

Misogyny, Moralism and the Woman at the Well

Last week, the newest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Captain Marvel came out in theaters — there are no spoilers in this post. We see a powerful woman performing heroic acts who eventually becomes known as the most powerful superhero in the MCU — even more powerful than Thor, Iron Man, and Black Panther.

Women preachers and apostles have been the popular topic of Christian debate for centuries.

Morse writes:. The alternative universe where an accident infuses the heroine with superhuman powers, however, seems to stand as a reasonable apologetic for the feminist agenda. This is a classic strawman argument: studies say that men and women are not exactly the same.

Though weary and thirsty Himself, Jesus spoke to her about the greater well which gives the greater water in v We saw that this greater and living water is meant to be an image of what the ministry of the Holy Spirit is like in the soul of man. It brings life, vibrancy, satisfaction, and vitality to us.
