WATCH: John Piper on Why Theologians Fall Into Adultery

Why is it that people who have Ph.D.s in theology are fighting "graduate-level sins" with "grammar-school knowledge" of God? 

For Pastor and Theologian John Piper, it boils down to one succinct item: They don't know God.  

If someone was truly in love with the Creator of the universe and not focused on satisfying his or her own needs, he or she wouldn't commit adultery.  

"You can read theology 10 hours a day, 40 years long and not know God is beautiful, all-satisfying, highest treasure of your life. Who cares about knowing God the way the devil knows about God?" he says.  

Watch the video and let us know what you think of his argument.
