I don't know what it is about Greg Boyd but every time I read his blogs or papers, the guy seems to have a liberal slant. While I agree with him in part about the tornado and the ELCA, I noticed that Boyd spoke on poverty (as if Piper and his ministry does not reach out to the poor or that Piper is unaware of poverty in our world). Boyd enjoyes taking liberal positions on such things as poverty, global warming, etc. To me, Boyd has moved from evangelical to open theist to progressive (liberal) theology. I don't have much respect for him for this.

And that's my two cents worth!

Piper is stuck in a timewarp with regard to his mindset. He should have learned something from the Englightenment.
