John Piper Explains Christian Hedonism

Opinion

John Piper covers Christian Hedonism in a response to a question sent by a "Desiring God" radio listener. "'Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.'

"Is it by knowing that the food for that day was provided for me by him and it's OK to enjoy it? Or another example would be happiness when our children do well in school.

In other words, Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2 still bind the consciences of individual Christians. We are to obey our civil authorities as powers that God Himself has ordained," MacArthur wrote.READ MORE
