The other day John Piper tweeted,

“God does not punish innocent children for the sins of guilty parents. There are no innocent children. (Deuteronomy 5:9; Ezekiel 18:20).”

Well, that just screamed for a cartoon. I drew a similar one to this years ago, but I redrew it with John Piper present.

This sinful baby just confirmed his theology. So Piper will probably appreciate this cartoon as an excellent illustration of his view.

    Am I guessing that he believes in the ‘sin of Adam’ is inborn/placed upon all humans?…. or similar?

    But why, if that is his belief, did Piper then tie a theological statement into a statement on punishment? Is this another “God always carries anger towards all people – because the death of Christ was not enough to divert His anger.”

    “For God was so angry at the world, that he gave Jesus as a partial gift, that whosoever believes in him may be punished more lightly.” ?? John 3:16ish?

    I have reached a point in life where I commonly refer to people of the John Piper belief system as Fucktards.

    With affection of course. 😉

  3. I like your version of John 3:16 Caryn.

    Gary… appropriate label.
