John MacArthur on Measuring Oral Roberts’ Influence

December 30, 2009

Two weeks ago John MacArthur on his Grace To You blog wrote about Oral Roberts’ influence on christianity and I must say that he could not have been more right with his assessment. MacArthur’s words are true not only about Oral Roberts but true about all teachers of these heretical doctrines (Prosperity and Word of Faith Theology). Pastor John MacArthur’s constinency on speaking out against heresy is exemplatory and courageous. His dedication and love for God and the Word has been a tremendous influence on me. If anyone wants more information on MacArthur speaking out against these movements, I would recommend his book I just recently finished Charismatic Chaos. I encourage the reading of this blog about Oral Roberts, here is the link:

    John MacArthur & Pretrib Rapture

    Who knows, maybe John (Reformedispy) 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 John has a warehouse of unsold pretrib rapture material, and if he wants to have “security” for his retirement years and hopes that the big California quake won’t louse up his plans, he has a decided conflict of interest. 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 180-year-old fantasy.
