  This morning I was scrolling through my Twitter feed when I was stopped dead in my tracks by a tweet from a prominent Christian website. It made me choke on my coffee. Desiring God is the brainchild of renowned conservative, evangelical preacher John Piper. It’s a website that publishes articles with the stated aim of “helping people everywhere embrace a profound truth that changes everything about life and eternity.” But the offending Tweet that I read from ‘Desiring God’ was neither profound — except in its wrongness — or true, or life-changing for that matter.
