Evil committed suicide.

In quotes, recommendations, theology on October 26, 2008 at 11:17 pm

In his provocatively-titled new book, Spectacular Sins, John Piper intends to show God’s absolute sovereignty over everything, including evil.  This quote has been stuck in my head for days.

“At the all-important pivot of human history, the worst sin ever committed served to show the greatest glory of Christ and obtain the sin-conquering gift of God’s grace.  God did not just overcome evil at the cross.  He made evil serve the overcoming of evil.  He made evil commit suicide in doing its worst evil (pg. 12).”
