Dear Dr. Truthslayer

Dear Dr. Truthslayer,

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.

Affectionately yours

Dr Truthslayer

    Who knows, maybe John MacArthur is right and the greatest Greek scholars (Google “Famous Rapture Watchers”), who uniformly said that Rev. 3:10 means PRESERVATION THROUGH, were wrong. But John has a conflict. On the one hand, since he knows that all Christian theology and organized churches before 1830 believed the church would be on earth during the tribulation, he would like to be seen as one who stands with the great Reformers. On the other hand, if you have a warehouse of unsold pretrib rapture material, and if you want to have “security” for your retirement years and hope that the big California quake won’t louse up your plans, you have a decided conflict of interest – right, John? Maybe the Lord will have to help strip off the layers of his seared conscience which have grown for years in order to please his parents and his supporters – who knows? One thing is for sure: pretrib is truly a house of cards and is so fragile that if a person removes just one card from the TOP of the pile, the whole thing can collapse. Which is why pretrib teachers don’t dare to even suggest they could be wrong on even one little subpoint! Don’t you feel sorry for the straitjacket they are in? While you’re mulling all this over, Google “Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty” for a rare behind-the-scenes look at the same 179-year-old fantasy.
