"Join me today in fasting and prayer for the 115 Cardinals seeking God's Will in a new leader."

I consider Piper to be the spiritual twin of Warren. Both see Rome the same way, both went to Fuller Theological Seminary which is VERY liberal, both were on committees of the Lausanne Congress.
Consider that Piper claims to be a Reformer. But also consider that Piper loves Roman Catholic philosopher GK Chesterton. This is why Piper must be rejected: he believes a false religion with a blasphemous leader can be a reformer of a dead church full of dead people. He sees legitimacy in Rome. Piper continues to bear bad fruit that can't be excused or justified. He's not a novice. He's not ignorant. He's well read, well educated, and claims to be a fan of the Puritans and Reformers, even claiming to be Reformed himself. If he believed in Total Depravity (T of the TULIP), then he would know that dead men are dead and lifeless and cannot change. Moreover a church of dead people is a dead church. And an anti-Christ blasphemer against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. He sided with the enemy in that post. But he's done this continually through the years, not the least of which is with Rick Warren, Mark Driscoll, and Doug Wilson.
