I listened to a sermon by John MacArthur called The Ambassadors’ Ministry of Reconciliation. Its not bad, but his explanation of the gospel is somewhat modern in take, but yet still helpful. I can’t help but think he sounds pained when he preaches though. Furthermore, how can he preach a sermon on the Ministry of Reconciliation but yet not recant his support for the Iraq War which is clearly non-reconciliatory….indeed, what about his attacks on John Armstrong? Or Brian McLaren? Should he not lead by example?
Thanks for you lack of insight. MacArthur should never be criticized.
John MacArthur does not need to reconcile with apostates like John Armstrong. If Armstrong does not share the same epistemology as MacArthur he is clearly wrong….and in no need of reconciliation. Moreover, Brian McLaren is an apostate – we know so because he has been taken to task in MacArthur’s book Truth Wars. We do not question MacArthur….his book is the Gospel 2.0.
Finally, all good Americans (in fact all good Westerners) need to be FOR the Iraq War. Clearly Iraq was a threat to the USA with their huge war budget surpassing that of Canada (which is a communist country by the way!!!) We must understand that in times of war we set aside the ministry of reconciliation to fully support (uncritically) our country in a time of great need and CRUSH the enemy.
