Justin Taylor on Good Advice for Controlling Leaders

"'Because I said so' is not very persuasive to five-year old children throwing a temper tantrum and 'because I said so' is not very effective with twenty-five year old college students in bed with one another. What is needed in it's place is a worldview built around the proposition that God said so. Our calling is not merely to parrot those words, but to sert forth a biblical theology that takes seriously the gracious prescriptions and the gracious prohibitions of our holy, loving Creator".

Justin Taylor - "Introduction" in "Sex and the Supremacy of Christ" (Piper, John and Taylor, Justin - editors) - Crossway Books (2006) - (p15).
