John Piper Doesn't Want Us to Read Doug Wilson's Black And Tan Anymore

SOOOOOOO STAHP IT YOU GUYS!!!!! JUST STAHP IT!!!!!! DON’T LET THE TRUTH OR FACTS GET IN THE WAY OF CALLING OUT “PALEOCONFEDERATE” BIGOTRY!

I just find it so funny that it was just last year Wilson invited everyone to get a free pdf copy of his book, and decide for themselves, but now, Pastor John Piper is urging (more likely his white evangelical followers) people to STAHP reading Black And Tan, , formerly known as “Slavery As It Was.” The original title proves that John Piper lied on the video linked to protect Doug Wilson.  The book was not about abortion, only mentions abortion once; it’s a defense of the Confederacy, and the enslavement of African bodies, a defense justified by Wilson’s biblical hermeneutic and his version of Calvinist theology (what Piper refers to as “The Gospel“).

 

Okay, John Piper, and Doug Wilson, I thank you for the invitation. I am going to re-read Black And Tan all over again, and live-tweet, and live-tumblr, and blog on every single line that’s racist [hint: the entire book], and I am not gonna be merciful or kind in the hopes of persuading Wilson’s followers; whoever endorses this man, yes this means you, Christianity Today, is too far gone to begin with, too emotionally invested to for “holy confrontation.”

It’ may not be this month, but I am re-reading Black and Tan, and making it an event.

    Christians are getting mowed down in churches by black African Islamists in Nigeria. They’re being killed in their homes in Pakistan, imprisoned and persecuted the globe over … and it’s John Piper’s Calvinism (or his white evangelical followers) that outrages you? If another Christian’s faults, or his race are what’s tweaking your ‘injustice meter’, brother, in light of the greater injustices in the world you seem to be ignoring – you had better get your ‘injustice meter’ checked.

    Romans 14:5-10 says – “One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who observes the day, observes it in honour of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honour of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honour of the Lord and gives thanks to God. For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end the Anointed One died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living. Why do you pass judgement on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgement seat of God;

    Wake up to the fact that there are worse things in the world than conservative white Christian Americans that refuse to embrace globalism or one-world government. Some of these ‘worse things’ are a far bigger threat to the faith you claim to profess than the things you write about here.

    From what you present to the public, it seems you mistake the gospel for your own propaganda based on pseudo-scholarship and misinformation.

      T. Brown,

      Surely there are more important things to worry about than a black Christian blogger’s comments. I mean, are they that threatening to your faith? Or is it REALLY important that Piper and Wilson continue to spread the Gospel of White Supremacy?

    The man has a right to speak up. Support him or forever hold your peace. Slavery is a DISGUSTING HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE AND IT’S A JOLLY GOOD THING IT’S DEAD AND GONE IN THE WEST. WILBERFORCE WOULD ABHOR THE CHRISTIANS OF TODAY FOR PROMOTING IT.

    There’s a real hero for you. Go and read about William Wilberforce. The kind of man I’d like to have as MY FRIEND!!
