You don’t have to look around the Church very far these days to discover trends happening in millions of hearts. For the past 10-15 years, reformed theology, known to some as Calvinism, has been a growing trend gaining strength. Along with this return to a robust historic doctrine, facial hair has also been a growing (no pun intended) trend alongside it. Books seem to stack up around beards in our churches these days. For me, the former is a glorious movement of God bringing more and more hearts into a deeper intellectual and inspirational faith while the latter is awesome as well though not joined by me due to God’s gift of a facial hair free face. Oh well, I guess I can love deep theology pointing me to Christ even though I have a clean face, right? Haha!
Enjoy this video below, it is wonderful, deeply intellectual, and inspiring to go after the heart of Christ in all of life. It is 4 minutes long and it is called “The Calvinist.” Written by John Piper, read by him and more of our favorite reformed friends around the world.
