My hermeneutics is when I see verses in Scripture that are “apparent” contradictions – I don’t believe they are contradictions – I believe them both. I believe them both. I believe take up your cross and deny yourself and follow me, and I believe come unto me all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest. They are different sides of the same thing. And I believe the weight of glory is a serious, what I call woe-lo-go text. I saw the Lord seated on His throne and woe is me for I am a man of unclean lips. Lo an angel touched my, and go. The words of cleansing, the word of confession, cleansing and commission. I believe that is part of the glory of God. I also believe what Irenaeus said – the glory of God is a human being fully alive. (Warren)
It is an interesting interview to say the least. Will Piper and Warren join forces? Will Warren become more Reformed? Piper more, um, Warren-like?
