I love this author and preacher. However I wonder if he really is a Calvinist. I think (after reading many of his books and hearing him preach many times) he is a cross between both camps. His eschatology is dispensational, and he also favors the sinners prayer (he uses it often). Also some of his views can be quite strange in some areas. I have heard him say on podcast that a christian can fall into new age and still be saved, just unrepentant. MacArthur is all lordship, so he would say he was a false convert or what not. I have hard Lutzer say other strange things in various books. For example on pp 73 of his book The Serpent of Paradise he says the following. This is a very radical statement and I am not sure if its from the Bible, or from a Hollywood movie. Some filmmakers believe that devils can take on the form of a human. In the X-files season 8 there is a episode where a devil takes the form of a young boy. Its a freaky episode and can give anyone the creeps if they analyze it carefully. Also there is a Twilight Zone episode of a devil taking the form of a human that died. This is not as dark, but the theology is warped. Maybe what Lutzer says is correct and devils can take the form of humans that have died. I am not sure that we know for sure 100%. But if so then the X-files maker is correct in his theology even though Chris Carter is not saved. Go watch that episode from X-files season #8 episode Invocation Thoughts?
