Controversies

  • How his church handled the matter of Covid 19. refused to cancel service, county and church lawsuit, the county paid the church for interfering with freedom of region.
  • The handling of the issue of domestic violence. Several women victims of domestic violence were supposedly asked to return to their abusive husbands.
  • Comments regarding Steve Furtick and Beth Moore. In 2012 at the annual Shepherd conference he made a remark when Steve’s name was mentioned, “unqualified”. While in 2019 at the Truth Matters Conference when Beth Moore name was mentioned he said ” go home”

I am not sure if some of the issues deserve the term controversies. Some are not proved conclusively, or rather I believe giving some benefit of time the issues will be handled. But also with many diverse yet biblical theological positions held by the body of Christ issues are bound to rise.

Reflections and Prayers

John MacArthur has had tremendous influence on Christianity today. He has stood with his convictions even against big oppositions that could have cost his a lot.

I pray that God will continue using him for his glory.

Rising concern that many of the believers who go to his church have found it hard to be part of other churches, their hearts as many say is that they are so cold. Lets pray for forbearance and oneness in the body as we seek to encourage and serve one another in our pursuit of God.
