Men with the Master

Hello men!

We are discussing the book “The Gospel According to Jesus” on Tuesday Nights at GCC.
“In The Gospel According to Jesus, MacArthur tackles the idea of ‘easy believism,’ challenging Christians to re-evaluate their commitment to Christ by examining their fruits. MacArthur asks, ‘What does it really mean to be saved?’ He urges readers to understand that their conversion was more than a mere point in time, that, by definition, it includes a lifetime of obediently walking with Jesus as Lord.

P.S. The ladies will be continuing a Bible study on 1 Peter with Susan Heck during the same timeframe.

One thought on “Men with the Master

  1. Hello David,

    First and foremost, none within our congregation are angry or even bitter. The Strange Fire Conference by John MacArthur was not meant to seen as angry and neither can I say that it was. However, you as well should know that these gifts have been taken out of context and used for personal gain (ex: TBN, Kenneth Copeland and others like them). We are indeed Cessationist, but we do believe that God still conducts miracles and heals people by HIs sovereign will. We believe that the Apostolic sign gifts have ceased and are no longer in operation. Even the Apostle Paul mentioned they would come to cease. However, there are those that are cautious but open to them still in operation today ( such as Piper and Matt Chandler). And for the record, no one has “slammed” another church, not here within this congregation and not even John MacArthur. The problem is that we need to call out the fake ones for what they are and call out those by name that deceive, not slam as you say.

    If one thinks they need “signs and wonders” for people to get saved, then they are gravely mistaken. The Gospel has the power to save a person. If you read scripture and read the passages where the Lord did miracles, you will notice not all people believed, even eye witnessing the miracles. God is Sovereign and He heals and remains to do miracles this day by His will.

    Thank you for the question.

    Stephen
