John MacArthur: Christianity that’s inoffensive is not Christianity

John MacArthur recently said that while his views on hot-button issues like homosexuality are controversial, his goal as a pastor is to “offend everyone” because any brand of Christianity that is “inoffensive” isn’t Christianity at all.

During an interview, author and conservative personality Ben Shapiro asked MacArthur how he addresses certain “difficult Scriptures,” pointing in particular to passages addressing homosexuality.

MacArthur, who is leader of Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, California, and president of The Master's College and Seminary, said that while there's “no getting around” the fact that the Bible clearly identifies homosexuality as a sin, it’s important to understand it’s “not some kind of sin that leads the parade and is separated by light years from all other sins.” ...

I don’t know, I’m not making the claim that he is, you are. Not to be rude, but do you know how to give documentation to back up your assertions?

Penny, here’s what you said,

“didn't he just have to step down from the college?...

did not some of these same gentlemen tell a generation to remain politically silent?

what really goes on behind the scenes?

how much of what we hear is through the careful eyes of a lawyer team?”

Accusations:

1. Stepping down from the college.

2. Telling men to remain politically quiet.

3. Things go on behind the scenes.

4. The whole lawyer thing.

And now you’re trying to shift the burden of proof. I’m not to try to find out if they said it, you are to provide evidence. If you accuse someone of something you should have the integrity to provide proof...

No problem, DJ, and apology accepted—but I do wish you’d come up with a handle that doesn’t cause confusion. How about Just a Backwoods Turkey Farmer from Wales, Texas? NO!!!!! Just kidding! And don’t go calling yourself Christopher001 or Connor8 either.

I apologize Dr. Tim, I didn’t mean “gotcha” in that way, but as a lighthearted “ok”. I also didn’t mean for people to actually think I was you. Just having fun

Yes, “Dr. Jim,” you really did. And just to make sure no one else mistakenly thinks one of your posts is mine, as has already happened, I’ll be bowing out for now. Enjoy.

How many of you have watched the interview? How many of you have listened to pastor MacArthur stand on the authority of the scripture? I’m 30min in watching it, and all I see is a preacher standing on the authority of scripture.
And penny, you made some grave accusations and that demands credible documentation, and I’ll say it again, it demands documentation, you are making accusations against men in ministry and that is no joking matter. So can you provide us with documentation?
You can google what Penny has said. Info is available. What is true and not true I have no idea based on official documents I screened. I am neither a member or student at Pastor Mac's church and college. His church can investigate and decide what actions to take if any. I have a pastor at the church where I am a member in good standing. I don't need to spend a lot of time and effort figuring something out I can't nor care about.

I think what MacArthur is saying, and I’m still watching the interview is not that Christians need to not be political but rather to be an example for Christ and to allow his spirit to guide you in your ability to build community. But morality is political, especially today.
As Christian parents, we’ve been inundated with the terrible messages that it’s all about your children or marriage. It’s about Christ and quite honestly if your family rejects Christ, or your children reject Christ, you are not responsible for their decision after raising them in a Christian home. They are answerable to God as we all are.

Just a quick note to say that I’m using my old moniker again. This is to avoid confusion as some nickname nabber has all but hijacked Plain Old Tim. And Christopher, if you say one word I’m spraying your park bench with wino repellent and taking the “Will work for Mogen David” sign off of your shopping cart.
