John Piper On Marriage
According to Piper, marriage is not mainly about financial prosperity; instead, it is about demonstrating the covenant of keeping love between Christ and his church. Earning a living is less important than having to know Christ.
It is more crucial to treasure Christ than to bear children. Sincerely uniting with Christ is a more powerful source of marital success than great sex and multiple income riches.
John Piper On Fasting
Fasting in the Bible is described as refraining from food for spiritual purposes. Going without meals just because it is unavailable or for health reasons is not biblical fasting. To meet the criteria of Scriptural your fasting must have a spiritual motive.
Piper states in his book titled “Hunger for God” that Christian fasting emerges from a yearning for God. It is not just the natural result of supreme satisfaction in God; it is also a chosen weapon against every power in the world that would deny that pleasure.
John Piper Church
In 1980, Piper was appointed pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and on March 31, 2013, he delivered his last sermon as the church’s pastor at the service of that Easter Sunday.
He informed the congregation in an official statement that he and his family would be relocating to Tennessee for at least a year in order to give the church’s new leadership the time and space they needed to establish their strategic plan. He is a pastor emeritus who continues to attend services but holds no official position in the church’s governing body.
