Charismatics brace for Heat-seeking Missives

According to counter-discernmentalists the Pope of the Truth War (PBUH) fired heat-seeking missives in Charismatic congregations in order to spread Operation Chaos—in our fight in this War against for Truth. Quote:

I thought MacArthur’s Charismatic Chaos sent a heat-seeking missile into the Charismatic movement. MacArthur himself, though, does not separate from well-known Charismatic, C. J. Mahaney. He has had Mahaney preach at his own church a few times and also speaks with Mahaney in many places all over the country, cooperating with him in ministry and worship. The Bible doesn’t teach anywhere to write a book about false doctrine and practice, but God’s Word does tell us to separate from it. You might not sell as many books if you practice separation. This is the kind of self-denial that Jesus called for in His presentation of the gospel….John MacArthur writes a book, Ashamed of the Gospel, and his church shows shame for biblical methods that depend on God for growth. He writes Hard to Believe, but his church wants to make it easier for the singles and youth to believe by giving them the fleshly lusts of the world. He authors Our Sufficiency in Christ, but his church puts confidence in the worldly methods to draw in new people.

Why write books that admonish everyone else about it when you are going to do it yourself? Why? People like it and it works. It doesn’t glorify the Lord, but people get what they want. Why follow anything John MacArthur has written if it isn’t good enough for him? It’s a blatant double standard.

I can already hear the defenses. I’ve read them over at Pyromaniacs among other Grace Community and MacArthur apologists. The defenses are very similar to those offered in revivalist fundamentalism. The one criticizing us “has a small group of supporters.” “He’s a hyper fundamentalist.” He’s one of those “King James Only types.” In other words, no substantial defense, just name-calling and blatant arrogance. There ought to be soul searching, but there is circle-the-wagons, close ranks, and often say whatever is necessary to deflect from what this is really about. These groups and their methods disobey Biblical methods, corrupt Scriptural worship, and diminish the true means of change in people’s lives. They are a worldly attraction that sends the wrong message about the purpose of the church. (The Truth War in a nutshell).

Know what? God is our Judge. What I’ve written is lightweight compared to what the Lord already knows. When there is no Scriptural defense, there should be confession and repentance. May God then have mercy on their souls.
