Defending Our Father

In World Magazine John Piper writes: "Father's Day gives me a fitting opportunity to defend my Father's wrath against me before I was adopted. He does not need my defense. But I believe He would be honored by it. And He commanded us, 'Honor your father' (Exodus 20:12)." He goes on to interact with Steve Chalke's repulsion at substitutionary atonement, or what Chalke terms "cosmic child abuse."
