Say it John

John Piper with characteristic eye-opening and linguistically simple theology:

I believe that if we are God-centered simply because we consciously or unconsciously believe God is man-centered, then our God-centeredness is in reality man-centeredness. Teaching God’s God-centeredness forces this issue of whether we treasure God because of his excellence or mainly because he endorses ours.

Found at Why God is Not A Megalomaniac In Demanding To Be Worshiped. The post contains 7 theses for those who ask "Why Is John Piper On the Planet?"
