I was surfing the net and reading up on blogs that I love. Came across this quote on Jonathan Dodsons blog by N. T. Wright, enjoy, be convicted.
The point of of following Jesus isn't simply so that we can be sure of going to a better place than this after we die. Our future beyond death is enormously important, but the future of the Christian hope is such that it plays back into the present life. We’re called, here and now, to be instruments of God’s new creation, the world-put-to-rights which has already been launched in Jesus and of which Jesus’ followers are supposed to be not simply beneficiaries but also agents.

-hey, can anyone summarize for me what the deal is with Piper and N.T and the "new" Pauline epistles? I have just heard mumblings of it down in the Noog.
