John Piper twist Scriptures

Here is a clearly a twisting of Scriptures by John Piper. Within just a few moments John changes "the Word of God" to a witness.

Yes, you heard it right, John says faith comes by a witness.

Read now The Word of God - Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Bro. Hallmark,
The video you referenced is only part of a sermon. The whole sermon can be found here:

In the context of the gospel of John where he is preaching from, Piper is talking about the coming of John the Baptist as a witness to Christ. One of the points in Piper's sermon is the necessity of witnesses.

I really don't think Piper is trying to twist scripture. I think Piper is focusing in on the fact that most of the time when faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, the listener is hearing the Word of God by the means of a human person witnessing to them. The content of what they witness to is from the Word of God.

I think Piper re-worded it to put the emphasis on the human witness part, not to try to slip something over the head of anyone.
