How ‘Progressive’ Can One Get and Still Be Considered a Christian?
Obviously, there’s a kind of progress (penicillin, air conditioning) that’s good. But as John Piper says in a new podcast, it’s not good to “progress” away from the truth and toward error. It’s not good to “progress” away from holiness and toward immorality.
“There is a line that a person may cross that puts him in a position of rightly being considered a non-Christian,” Piper says, “because of some unrepentant behavior or some belief that the Bible itself shows to undermine salvation.”
