    John MacArthur, a Calvinist, believes that Jesus' death saved us, not His physical blood. Is that wrong doctrine?

    John MacArthur beleives that the spilling of Christ's blood was nesscary, but that there was nothing in and of itself special in Christ's blood. There is ntohing wrong with his belief.

    MacArthur's is the orthodox position (remember, the wages of sin is _______ -- you fill in the blank and you will the see the answer to your question). He does not deny the necessity of bloodshed.

    However, this is a discussion that belongs elsewhere, so I will move it there for it to continue.
