John Piper is bad....I don't just do bad things, I am bad. And so are you.
Do you not know that the bad shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God. NASB, but unrighteous replaced with bad
- Paul says that those who are status-bad shall not inherit the kingdom of God
- Paul is clear that the status-bad are those characterised by doing bad things
- Paul is clear that the Christians he writes to are no longer status-bad: they have been washed, they have been sanctified (made holy)
