Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

Loyal leadership

This is from 'holding forth His word'....



While reading 1 Samuel chapter 15, I was struck with the similarities between King Saul of Israel and today’s leaders in the church.  The leaders I am here referring to aren’t from the obviously apostate denominations, but those who are extolled and embraced by the evangelical church.  The correspondence between King Saul and evangelical church leaders can be seen in the incomplete obedience rendered to God by both.  On the part of Saul that incomplete obedience was his failure to completely annihilate the Amalekites and their livestock.   He and his men saved the best of the livestock to offer to God, and spared the life of Agag the king.  It was shortly after Saul’s disobedience that the Lord came to Samuel.

One doesn't have to go very far to find blatant hypocrisy and lies coming from John MacArthur's mouth. Not only does JM cite and praise an avowed occultist heretic (CS Lewis), but then demands that a "conscience faith in Christ" is necessary for salvation. It is, that is for everyone except John MacArthur. Somehow, JM claims he has been given some "special grace" by which he somehow was allowed to avoid repentance and then states that he "has always believed" and that "there was never a time when he did not believe". Wow! we just don't understand how very special you must be in the eyes and favor of the Lord Jesus. Let me fully understand this: You have always believed, there was never a time when you did not 'believe' and there was no need for repentance for John MacArthur to claim to be saved. Got it! [somehow, at least in his own mind, JM has been allowed to ooze his way into the kingdom in a manner totally foreign to Scripture and the experience of those truly born again].

Hard to fathom??? Hear John MacArthur say all of this and more straight from his own mouth at gty.org and find sermon # 80-33, easily located on the "contact page".

I too have read his 'testimony' Darrel, and my jaw dropped. It was so troubling - he 'always' believed, so he had no need to repent? So, he doesn't repent of sin daily like the rest of us?!? Amazing indeed. His 'fans' will continue to support his lavish salary and defend his erroneous teachings. What they forget is this- Christ warns of wolves. A wolf looks and acts JUST LIKE a sheep - very hard to distinguish. You really have to dissect a wolf before you can see them for what they are.
