John Piper is founder and teacher of desiring and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary.For 33 years, he served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota.From John's site: I received the following entertaining e-mail from a close source who wishes to remain anonymous.
After 12 hours the Baptist Guy was starting to wonder if she would pass, but sure enough she comes out and says “Whew, I made it.” The Calvinist confidently walks into the room and shuts the door behind him. The Calvinist is crushed and walks back to crossroads where the two signs are.
You may ask, why do we have Calvinist jokes on a Yankee Joke site? Finally, after the six hours, the Baptist comes out and goes “Whew, I made it.” Still, nervous the Pentecostal Lady takes her turn and goes in. The Calvinist answers, “there were two signs and I chose the one that says predestination. ” “Well then, you can’t come in” And he slams the door shut.
The Pentecostal lady knows that if the Baptist man is having this hard of a time she really must be in trouble. They walk by this group of people hanging out with the Virgin Mary and a couple of saints. He knocks and an an angel opens the door and asks “what brings you to my door”?
This comes from a friend with whom I regularly correspond, so don't get any funny ideas about sending me hilarious rants.
I wanted to email you anyway, so I thought I'd use a slice of the Calvinist dating service as a segue.
