In this article, Clint Archer tells an interestingly humorous story of his encounter with John Piper when he asked him about his relationship with both John MacArthur and Mark Driscoll.
Now these guys do not get along. MacArthur has publicly blasted Driscoll for his unconventional approach to pastoring. Both men are in in completely different regions culturally, and reflect identifiably unique generations.
I love Piper’s response in this story. I wish I had his wisdom and ability to see the good in people.
