Paul's Passing Thoughts

John MacArthur and Al Mohler: Their Hearts are Revealed by Their Endorsement of CJ Mahaney

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on January 22, 2013

ppt-jpeg4“MacArthur’s hypocrisy is sickening. While calling Osteen demon possessed for propagating positive visualization, he himself propagates gospel contemplationism via Mahaney’s Reformed assertion that gospel manifestations occur as a result of contemplating the five-word gospel: ‘Christ died for our sins’ and looking for it in every verse of the Bible. MacArthur has bought into this Reformed mysticism lock, stock, and barrel.”

John MacArthur looks good and sounds good. I was never that impressed with Al Mohler, but was a rabid follower of John MacArthur for years. My present and merited complete disrespect for MacArthur was a long, slow, and painful process.

Sorting out truth can often be a laborious affair, and Bible authors promised us that false teachers are able to present themselves as angels of light. In other words, they will not be wearing cheap costumes. So, Jesus gave us a really easy way to know who the false teachers are: “By their fruits you will know them.”

Regardless of what the Bible plainly states in regard to the qualifications of elders, John MacArthur, while spending time fustigating Joel Osteen, has consistently endorsed CJ Mahaney by appearing with him at several conferences and inviting him to conferences directly hosted by the church he pastors.

I have news for MacArthur, the sins of CJ Mahaney have never once been named in Osteen’s camp and I seriously doubt they ever will be. MacArthur’s hypocrisy is sickening. While calling Osteen demon possessed for propagating positive visualization, he himself propagates gospel contemplationism via Mahaney’s Reformed assertion that gospel manifestations occur as a result of contemplating the five-word gospel: “Christ died for our sins” and looking for it in every verse of the Bible. MacArthur has bought into this Reformed mysticism lock, stock, and barrel.

I thank Julie Anne Smith and her investigative reporting at Spiritual Sounding board .com. Please go there and get up to speed on what is being revealed about the ministry that CJ Mahaney is president of, Sovereign Grace Ministries (SGM). This is what MacArthur endorses. “But he didn’t know.”

Boloney, if a housewife from Oregon knew, MacArthur knew. And now we know that truth and justice really doesn’t matter to Mac. These guys make their own rules; like when Calvin had Michael Servetus executed when heresy wasn’t on the books as a capital offence.

This is their proud heritage, and the student always ends up like the teacher.

    Yes, I would have expected it from Mohler, Piper, Duncan, etc., but not from MacArthur, who at least has called out Driscoll. Even if he’s waiting for the end of the trial, which will be in about a year, to write something definitive, he could at least break the deafening silence from the Big Boys about something so serious.

    I know MacArthur will be deeply disturbed to learn you disapprove of him.

      Jimmy,
      Your sarcasm is the point. Little guys like me don’t matter. Your absolutely right, MacArthur is completely indifferent to fellow Christians that are of the lower class.

    Did not Jesus prefer to hang out with the lower class? If Sunday School serves me well, I would say the disciples were also not quite the upper crust of society. I think Paul you are in good company.

    MacArthur certainly does not believe in mysticism or endorse that, which is clear by him hosting the Strange Fire Conference this week and the book where he writes an appeal to his charismatic friends, imploring them to think through their doctrine and its implications. And he would certainly not endorse sex abuse – I am guessing he is waiting to see what results from the case, if there is even enough convincing evidence at that point. Truth be known, we may not know what truly happened this side of eternity.

      MacArthur has become confused about many things. He is one of many pastors I know and know of that has been deceived by the New Calvinist Movement.
