In the video above from December 2009, John Piper appeared to take a firm stand against the heretical teachings of the Roman Catholic false Church.
However, in a recent blog entry Mr Piper attempts to [retract] "clarify" what he means when he calls the RCC's teachings on justification "heresy."
In his article he leaves things less than clear, even going as far as calling the pope a "teacher of the Church" for instance.
And in light of his previous endorsements and associations namely; Rick Warren, Mark Driscoll and Beth Moore I'm going to stick my neck out here and say that John the pied Piper sounds like someone who is about to/or already has, swum the Tiber.
Here is Mr Piper's article (emphasis mine in red) :
A few years ago, I was asked on camera what I would say to the Pope if I had two minutes with him. I said I would ask him what he believed about justification. The video ended with me putting the question to the Pope and then responding as follows:“Do you teach that we should rely entirely on the righteousness of Christ imputed to us by faith alone as the ground of God being 100% for us, after which necessary sanctification comes? Do you teach that?”And if he said, “No, we don’t,” then I’d say, “I think that right at the core of Roman Catholic theology is a heresy,” or something like that. Amen! well done.
