I was thinking the same thing!

Fathers, don’t get drunk. Because your daughters will have sex with you, and you WILL die.

I feel like this is the start of a new meme: IT CAN HAPPEN AGAIN.

For example:

“Tobias was so eager to come into his wife’s bedchamber, that he smoked fish liver to scare the demon out of her naughty bits. (Tobit 8: 1-14) IT CAN HAPPEN AGAIN.”

If it happens again, wasn’t it predestined to happen again Mr. Piper?

    yes it is predestined to happen, so if he does this, it is almost like a combination of a preemptive apology and a “i told you so”

Piper is EASILY the creepiest complementarian I follow on Twitter, and I follow Driscoll and Al Mohler. And Doug Wilson. His tweets are so incredibly creepy I can’t even explain.

        Driscoll has said a lot of creepy things in other contexts. One thing that immediately comes to mind is the second half of this clip on how he “protects” his wife. Danni Moss a good job of explaining why Driscoll’s comments here are troubling.

        Or the stuff he says about how the bible tells women to perform oral sex on their husbands 0_o

Another implausible bible story.
Lot was able to have an erection while drunk? Twice?
Lot‘s sperm count recovered in 24 hours?
The true propose of the story may have been to justify the Israelite genocide against the Moabites and the Ammonite since according to the bible, those to ethnic groups would not have existed without the incestuous relationship.

    Charlie, I like your posts usually, but I’d like to ask you to refrain from using such language as your only comment. I don’t normally “police” people’s language, but that is one word that, to me, is the equivalent of saying “How n-word” or something. So, please.

        No problem. It’s just that I have a bro who’s disabled, and he means the world to me, so I get a bit of a shock when I see otherwise great people using that word. No hard feelings at all. :)

    They pre-meditated it actually.

    Our father is old and there is not a man in the land to have relations with us according to the way of the whole earth. Come, let us give our father wine to drink and let us lie down with him and preserve offspring from our father.”—Gen. 19:31, 32.

      Obviously there’s a lot of this story we’ll never know, but their time in Sodom could have corrupted them so that they rationalised this; and that Lot let himself behave like that even in a drunken stupor.

Ah, Mr. Piper, when will you learn that huge theological concepts – especially when you’re using them as proclamations about something you’ve never experienced or will experience – do not do well when they are whittled down to 140 characters?
