Q142 : John Piper’s Views on Salvation

Dr. Woods,

Our church has decided to use John Piper's material for our children’s Sunday morning Bible study material. I know he is not dispensational but covenant theology. My question concerns Piper's view on salvation. I know he is a very strong Calvinist. I recently read his book, “Desiring God” but it is somewhat confusing trying to decipher if he means two different things between salvation and conversion. I know this is way off track from our church’s doctrinal position and just need some insight on Piper’s theology as it pertains to salvation if you have the time.

A142 : by Andy Woods

Here is my understanding: Piper's Soteriology is not Chaferian but Reformed.

Justification for him does not just consist of belief in Christ alone for salvation (John 3:16; Acts 16:31) but rather submission of every area of one's life to Christ's lordship. The best thing I could recommend to you on this is Fred Lybrand's recent book Back to Faitha (published by Xulon Press). In chapter 7, Lybrand provides documentation exposing Piper's Lordship salvation and Reformed Soteriology.
