This Week's Sermon: "When a Lover of Good Thinks About Evil"

This Week's Sermon: "When a Lover of Good Thinks About Evil"

"It is predominantly bleak and ugly," says John Piper on 2 Timothy 3:1–13. The apostle Paul tells us we need to know evil and then lays out nineteen descriptions of it.

How we approach the Bible is vital to how we understand this text. These are not mere descriptions. They are descriptions given to the church for our holiness and maturity. They describe the last days in which we live and remind us that the ugliness of evil is real — and that we dare not be ignorant of it.
