Decided we needed to do a Radio Free Geneva today, and it turned out as a jumbo edition at that! Started off with Showbread’s “Dear John Piper” song, going through the lyrics and identifying the sources that led to this vicious construction of a burning straw man. Then I played a song by Shane and Shane that I had only seen/heard this morning, which happens to include John Piper, that was directly relevant to the topic. Then we made a major transition to teaching mode and spent quite some time discussing hermeneutics, exegesis, the order salutis, etc., looking closely at the constructions in 1 John 2:29, 1 John 4:7, and 1 John 5:1, then looking at comments made by Leighton Flowers attempting to avoid the weight of what 1 John 5:1 teaches about faith and regeneration. Hopefully helpful to all!
