4 thoughts on “Three Ways the Gospel Overcomes Online Temptations

  1. Not a bad thing having Don Carson plugging Covenant Eyes, eh?

    I noticed in this brief few minutes that John Piper seemed about to say something, or had a look on his face that said to the other two, “something is still missing here” – if that’s true I wonder what it was…

    Still, it’s great to see these three lions getting together and talking about the issue that is affecting so many men. I like what they’re saying about “costly grace”, those two sides of justification, but alongside what Jesus saved us from there is what He saved us to – to be caught up in and experience the larger story of living for His glory.

    • @Brian – If I was to wager a guess, I believe Piper was about to develop his thought on what it means to fight lust with “a centering” on the gospel. Keller touches on this theme some when he mentions how the love of God fills the void that we try to fill with the false intimacy of pornography. If you watch Part 7 I think you see Piper jump in on this full-steam. He says, “One of the things the gospel-centered accountability partner will do…is so magnify the beauty of Christ, the glory of Christ, the wonders of Christ, that the heart—the hungry heart of the porn-prone person—is gradually satisfied by something far superior, so that he is, in a positive way, weaned off of this.” If I recall, he really develops this in his message, “Battling the Unbelief of Lust.” Gotta love Piper.
