Deep Inconsistencies

Resistance involves dealing with both the obvious and the hidden—the “deep inconsistencies” that are often buried beneath years of excuses and a lack of confrontation.

In the following 20-minute “Bloodlines” documentary, John Piper addresses the issue of racism in his own life.

Piper says, “It [racism] was a cesspool of sin, and I was swimming in it…into my life were flowing these contradictory impulses.


“It is fundamentally a Cross issue, a blood issue, a Gospel issue that is at play here. And what’s so amazing is how the Gospel, by faith alone, having our sins forgiven—that Gospel is the key to triumphing over these sins that militate against the advance of racial harmony and racial diversity.” [John Piper]
