Christian Theologian John Piper: The Newtown Murders Are a Warning from God to See Our Souls as Depraved

Here’s Christian theologian John Piper talking out of his ass about the Newtown shootings:

the murders of Newtown are a warning to me — and you. Not a warning to see our schools as defenseless, but to see our souls as depraved. To see our need for a Savior. To humble ourselves in repentance for the God-diminishing bitterness of our hearts. To turn to Christ in desperate need, and to treasure his forgiveness, his transforming, and his friendship.

What did the rest of us take away from the massacre? We should let our friends and family members know that we love them because life is short and anything could happen. We need stricter gun control laws in our country. We live in a country full of people who will use even the cruelest of tragedies to advance their religious/political beliefs.

What did Piper take away from all this? We need more Jesus in our lives.
