Praise God for Fundamentalists :: Desiring God Blog

In 2005, the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship passed a resolution “On the Ministry of John Piper.” Earlier today, Dr. Piper posted a response entitled “Praise God for Fundamentalists.” While conceding that many of the charges in the FBF resolution are correctly stated, he is convinced of some contrary positions, such as his noncessationist view of the miraculous spiritual gifts (in-the-whatever-it-is-worth category, DBTS’s articles of faith, article 10, on spiritual gifts is the most biblically consistent view). However, he concludes with this: “So I thank God for fundamentalism, and I think that some of the whining about its ill effects would have to also be directed against the black-and-white bluntness of Jesus.”

This brief article is worth noting and may I say “Amen” to Dr. Piper’s conclusions.
