Stop Talking About Jesus

I read this story today on the blog of Seattle’s Mars Hill Church. The hurt is so real, but likewise the need for Jesus and the need for preaching the gospel is so real.

It reminds me of a quote from John Piper, who said, “The biblical perspective is that the cross is a witness to the infinite worth of God’s glory and a witness to the immensity of the sin of my pride […] The cross has brought together the two sides of preaching: (a) the vindication and exaltation of God’s glory; (b) the hope and joy and gladness of sinful man”
