Piper agrees that the narrative story must be read alongside Paul

It was only last Monday 3rd of March that I posted about Paul and the Narrative story. There I wrote about how Luke was a contemporary of Paul and was a bit like his biographer and to get a true understanding of Paul's theology we had to read him alongside the narrative story. I argued that it was wrong for scholars to say that we cannot use narrative / Acts for doctrinal purposes.

Adrian Warnock has just posted regarding the experience of the baptism of the Holy Spirit quoting John Piper's sermon regarding What does it mean to receive the Holy Spirit.

Here John Piper argues exactly what I wrote here about there being two workings of the Holy Spirit and that indeed the receiving of the Holy Spirit is experiential and not just a rational intellectual belief.
