Laughing at the Sober Confession of Sin

As I type this I am absolutely flabbergasted and really do not know what to say (or type).

Recently, John Piper spoke at the American Association of Christian Counselors and began his message confessing the reality of his own sinfulness and his insecurities.  To my shock (and to Piper’s) the audience burst into laughter again and again.  When I played the clip to my wife it took much convincing for her to finally accept that this wasn’t an edited clip.

You can listen to the recording here, or you can read some further reflections and quotations supplied by Justin Taylor.
