John Piper and masculine Christianity

Simone has sparked a fascinating discussion on John Piper's talk, “The Frank and Manly Mr. Ryle” — The Value of a Masculine Ministry.

You can find Simone's post here, but do read Piper's original before drawing conclusions.

It is good to see a thoughtful defence of some of Piper's ideas and expressions in the comments to Simone's post. Not that Piper needs others to defend him, but it is likely that he would have his hands well and truly full if he weighed in to every discussion that referenced his original address.

I think it was a pity that people were commenting on a distortion of what John Piper had said, and not on his words in the context in which he said them.

Piper's talk had a lot of helpful and biblical teaching, though I think he went a bit further than Scripture goes.

I liked what Simone said and don't think Pastor Piper would disagree with that, either.
