I consider John MacArthur to be an excellent Bible teacher and preacher and I've learned much from him, but is he a good soulwinner? I've listened to him on the radio many times and read some of his books but I've never once heard him offer a call of salvation to the general audience, asking them to accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. I've read that he leans towards Calvinism, which would explain his apparent lack of interest in soulwinning. If one believes that God already pre-ordained certain sinners to be saved then I could understand one not being too aggressive in soulwinning. This is the only problem I might say I have with him, and his preaching is a bit too intellectual at times and seems mainly geared towards mature Christians rather than babes in Christ. Am I missing something here? Does he just edit out the salvation message from his radio program in order to avoid being redundant? What is his stand on this issue? In the end, a Pastor or ministry which is not very interested in winning new souls for Christ, no matter how intelligent or learned, doesn't have much to teach a new Christian.
