John MacArthur vs. Mark Driscoll: Megachurch pastors clash over charismatic theology
Megachurch pastor Mark Driscoll claims that his books were confiscated at the Strange Fire conference put on by another megachurch pastor John MacArthur.

Driscoll, who pastors Mars Hill Church in Seattle, is a reformed pastor who is more open to charismatic theology. MacArthur, who pastors Grace Community Church in southern California and has been named in the top 10 most influential pastors in a survey by LifeWay Research, has long criticized the charismatic movement, calling it “a farce and a scam.” ...

Let's not lose sight of how dangerous Charismatic theology can be, especially for new believers who don't know their Bible well. John MacArthur is one of the Bible teachers the good Lord used to deliver me from wacky Charismatic teachings over 15 years ago. Mark Driscoll would do well to read MacArthur's books and repent of his wrong teaching and practices.

John MacArthur, sadly, believes and teaches a pre tribulation rapture with its baggage of false doctrines.

If you had ever read any of the crude, vulgar, blasphemous stuff that comes out of deranged mind of Driscoll, you would understand MacArthur not wanting this false prophet's literature at his conference. Mark Driscoll has no fear of God and anyone who promotes his trash should be suspect such as the likes of John Piper. Piper has tolerated and defended Driscoll's ungodly attitude, speech and behaviour, while MacArthur took him to task for his mocking of sin and potty mouth preaching. There is a great sermon by Laurence Justice on Driscoll which I highly recommend. There is also on the internet an article by Cathy Mickels in which she furnishes various quotes by Driscoll which show him to be the charlatan that he is. Strange Fire indeed!!!

A conference held to promote John MacArthur's new book is crashed by a pastor promoting his new book. Without getting the official imprimatur of MacArthur's organization, the conference crasher is escorted out. The absurdity of this situation, and the idea of MacArthur requiring an official imprimatur to distribute literature at his conference, is making me reconsider buying his book. At least the Charismatic movement, as far as I know, has never required an imprimatur to distribute a book. (Creflo Dollar, for example, applauds the dedication of picketers at his church and encourages his congregation to learn from their example.)

Subliminal sanctification and the Charismatic movement seem to be good partners; they fit together perfectly. From the very beginning Charismatic movements, whichever of them, have promised primarily shortcuts to spiritual maturity. One of the greatest attractions of the Charismatic movement has always been that it offers believers "Power, Understanding, and Spirituality" immediately through some kind of experience; and if you just have the experience--you've got it without the time, without the pain, without the progress, without the struggle that's natural to any growth process.---John MacArthur excerpt from "What is true spirituality?"

you will find more comments about the Holy Spirit itself, at the end of the John MacArthur piece. Please do read the entire article itself that the excerpt that SA printed here came from.
