Growing Up: How to Listen Like a Man
From MacArthur's Blog:

Before we put up John MacArthur’s second post in the series—what amounts to some fatherly advice to the Young, Restless, and Reformed folks—I’d like to interject a few thoughts for your consideration.

I’ve been watching the comments here and there in the blogosphere, and I’m mostly encouraged. Most people have been saying, “I appreciate John MacArthur. I don’t always agree with him, but I realize I need to set my disagreements aside to hear what the man has to say.” Bravo. I totally applaud that attitude, and I appreciate Tim Challies for encouraging us in that direction.

But I’ve also read posts that represent the sentiment Tim cautioned against. I appreciate the concerns some have raised, and I’d like to speak to some of that now. In fact, to keep you from having to wade through it all, here are a few of the criticisms (in my own words).

Almost Catholic
What about it?

Infinitely better than listening to Catholic theologians (and if you don't comprehend what and who you are listening to in a Roman Catholic theologian/apologist you've got big problems) is to listen first and foremost to the Word of God like your life depends upon what God Himself says NOT what some celebrity religious scholar says about what God Himself says and teaches us in the Bible.

Psalm 1

1 Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so,

This is a little hard to take from Mr. J-Mac.

Why do celebrity preachers get away with this kind of thing? One moment they say one thing, and the next they undermine it.

Have a look at John McAuthor's rap video, all in fun I am sure...

Is this how to listen like a man? Look like a hood and talk like a fool who cannot speak English?

(ya his name is Johnny-Mac and he knows he is fresh)

This is fresh all right...
