As I'm basically new here, I wasn't sure where to post this topic, so if it's in the incorrect place, please move it. :type: This is an offshoot from the following thread under "Welcome to Baptist Board", found here: http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?p=1273085#post1273085 and the following link that was posted there: http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/articles/blood.htm The Word of God commands us to test all things, and besides that, we should know that a man is judged and condemned by his very own words. He looks like a sheep, even behaves like a sheep, but his doctrine on the Blood of Christ, his stance on Lordship Salvation, as well as the fact that he's a New Evangelical spell W-O-L-F. It is clear that not only does MacArthur talk out of both sides of his mouth, but he also talks in circles, and it is clear that his belief is in contrast to Leviticus 17:11 - For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Statements taken from MacArthur's own books, which, to date he hasn't recanted/repented: (1) MacArthur's commentary on the Book of Hebrews, published in 1983 by Moody Press: (bold and red emphasis are mine). - (John MacArthur, Hebrews, pp. 236- 238). This book, to my knowledge, by the way is still being published by Moody Press and being sold by MacArthur's ministry to unsuspecting Christians. A biblical refutation of MacArthur's heresy: Blood is not just symbolic for death when referring to Christ's Atonement. God's law demands death and the shedding of blood for remission of sin in Leviticus 17:11, Ezekiel 18:4, Romans 6:23 and Hebrews 9:22. MacArthur is a New Evangelical and what makes his teaching extremely dangerious is because it's so subtle - he teaches a lot of truth, but he mixes it with untruth (leaven) - and scripture tells us that it takes just a little leaven to leaven the entire loaf. It's like the proverbial frog in a pot of water. Christians need to wakel up and start smelling the coffee, the Bible clearly hold a doctrine of end-time apostasy whereby God will hand people over to an even greater delusion because they don't have a love for the truth. I find it rather ironic that the article that can be found here: http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/articles/blood.htm that attempts to justify MacArthur, actually condemns him, because he (MacArthur) clearly states: "It is not the actual liquid that cleanses us from our sins, but the work of redemption Christ accomplished in pouring it out." Now compare this statement to Scripture: Ephesians 2:13 - But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. and Hebrews 10:29 -Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? He accuses Bob Jones university of a smear campaign against him, but what testimony do his words give to others? To my mind, John MacArthur is a typical Christian apostate who tries to cover up his heresies by accusing others of wrongdoing, instead of examining his own beliefs according to the Word of God.
