(Annoying News: a ministry of disseminating misinformation, lies and slander while apprising everyone to follow only the cults of celebrity in the Discernmentalist World )– Normally we are against all things Roman Catholic except in special circumstances ie. our dependence on Saint Augustine’s interpretation of Aristotelian philosophy or R. C. Sproul’s love of Aquinas. This is one of those times when these special circumstances may be applied against our normative Absolute Rules. After Discernmentalists declared John MacArthur 100% infallible by a voting margin of 100-0 this Jan., it was proclaimed that the logical conclusion of this recent event was to elect MacArthur the first ever Discernmentalist Pope.
Ken Silva reports: “Indeed the word infallible applied to any person can only signify that one has elicited the status of Pope-hood other than that infallibility must only be applied to our Holy Inerrant Bible—the Only True Word of God.”
Vicki, a typical McArthurite reacts to the news of the election of MacArthur as the first Discernmentalist Pope ever:
Anyone who disagrees with John MacArthur on any point of Doctrine is just full of arrogance and condensation.
My understanding of the doctrine of election is not at all sinful–John MacArthur told me so.
Trusting too much to history and too little to the teaching of scripture would have left us in Rome–John MacArthur told me so.
There is a price a godly man must pay to be heard, that price is humility and respect.
If a man wants an audience to listen to his doctrine-he would do well to heed the following!
” Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.”
Titus 3:1-3 (ESV).— (Source).
Ken Silva asked Phil Johnson aka Pastor Hugh Jass or Spurgeon’s clone, MacArthur’s flunky lacky hindquarters right-hand man about his boss’s election to Discernmentalist Pope-hood. Phil responded: “Deep down I always knew that this day would come when he (MacArthur) would be elected Pope over all Discernmentalists and the Truth Wars as the #1 Truth Truth Warrior of Absolute Truth. I wholeheartedly support the recent vote on the infallibility of my boss and his election to the office of Discernmentalist Pope.”
Ken Silva pressed the rest of the fine, outstanding, Discernmentalist-minded and Biblically based Pyromaniacs crew: Frank Turk and Dan Phillips et al. on their thoughts but they were unavailable to comment.

When he is not discernmentalizing the 99% of humanity who do not agree with him, you can usually find him preaching to the choir of the small Southern Baptist Church of 8 members that he pastors. Sometimes he uses a Truth Rod–although this may just be a rumor.
