Grotesque or Gracious? It's Your Choice1
I recently read that Lady Gaga has over 32 million followers on Twitter. Justin Bieber has around 31 million. John Piper has a mere 450,000 or so. I seriously doubt that anything of value has ever come out of the mouth of Lady Gaga, yet such is our world today that her pathetic drivel is considerably more appealing than the wisdom of Piper. Of young Bieber I’ll refrain from saying anything.
“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. . . . Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving” (Ephesians 4:29; 5:4).
