The Gospel is Relevant

John Piper on gospel relevance: "If you want to be relevant, say, for prostitutes, don’t watch a movie with a lot of tumbles in a brothel. Immerse yourself in the gospel, which is tailor-made for prostitutes; then watch Jesus deal with them in the Bible; then go find a prostitute and talk to her. Listen to her, not the movie. Being entertained by sin does not increase compassion for sinners."

And Sean Green's Chronicles of Reading: "There is loads going on in the town and Christians need to be engaged with it.”
