LA Times Continues to Target John MacArthur’s Church
MacArthur and church attorneys declined to respond to repeated requests for an interview. MacArthur, in the Fox News interview with host Laura Ingraham, stood his ground. “Our church is literally flooded with people. We have them in every nook and cranny jammed together,” he said, saying worshipers are attending “to hear the message of forgiveness and salvation in a time when fear is being propagated on every street.”

Members of the church interviewed by The Times, most of whom declined to provide their full names because of privacy concerns, gave a wide range of reasons for agreeing with the church’s stance.

Lance, 22, a Santa Clarita resident, said “it’s not that dangerous for someone like me,” referring to the lower, but sometimes serious, health risks the virus seems to pose to young people. ...

For those who need an overview of what has been happening between LA county and Grace Community Church, this will give the background at least through September 11th of this year.

"What’s Going On With John MacArthur and Grace Community Church? Must True Believers Vote Republican?"

By the way for you who do not want to use the John MacArthur Study Bible, there is also the Charles Ryrie Study Bible which can also be found with the KJV version, which you can't find with the John MacArthur Study Bible❗

An observation, "L-bug
Refrain your rant please, it is far from edifying. Please abstain from mentioning my name in your posts. This is greatly appreciated.
Thanks" So, when BM posts her accusations about Americans, it's truth, BUT, when SHE is on the other end, it's a rant. That seems to prove my point It would seem the very thing others accuse Americans of, they themselves are filled with. Only God given eyes can see their own sin. Pharisees always point to 'others'.

Well, John, thanks for showing your true colors and proving my point. In one post you say, and I quote, “Whenever the Diotrophean spirit manifests itself on the forum, it will inevitably accuse others, because it is in its own interest to do so.” And what do you do in the very next post? Why, accuse others, of course. You are such a blind hypocrite that I suppose you can’t see that you yourself are guilty of the very thing you charge me with. Anyway, slash on, John Quixote. Your little rubber sword can’t do any damage. I have things to do, and they don’t include chasing after fleas, so you’ll just have to carry on the best you can all by yourself. Adios, amoeba.
Where there is no grace in the exhortation, there is no grace in the exhorter. This applies worldwide, in every country, to every man.

Do the maths, Tim.

Going to ring off for now and go find some sinners to psychologically manipulate with the Bible. 😅
The problem is, Tim, that is exactly what you do. You do not believe that the Spirit of God successfully brings God's elect to faith, and so you have to convince sinners of the gospel yourself, using all sorts of emotional appeals. It is no different to the psychological manipulation used by crusade preachers, with all the "just as I am..." music and soothing tones of the preacher, and the peer pressure [of so-called Christians getting up out of their chair to go to the front, as if they were repenting sinners themselves, thereby trying to encourage others to do the same, not relying on the Spirit of God but manipulation of the mind].

The gospel is the gospel of God's marvellous grace. It is an irresistible grace, and it is amazing grace. And it is for the whole world to hear, and the elect to respond to. The gospel is God calling his elect.

Romans 8:30 KJV
(30)  Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

It amazes me that you can take divine things and laugh about them, as though it is all a big joke.

You can preach it, John, but it’s obvious you can’t practice it. I make a motion that we rename the site John D. (as in Diotrophes) Lee Audio. That way you can have your imperious way without having to deal with us peons.
Whenever the Diotrophean spirit manifests itself on the forum, it will inevitably accuse others, because it is in its own interest to do so. The real Diotrophes is the one who not only does not accept the theology, practice, or posts, of those who disagree with him or her, but makes every effort to sarcastically prevent him or her from posting their thoughts and claims. This is the psychological manipulation and power struggle they are engaged with, which is contrary to Christianity. But there is never any acknowledgment of that, of course not; pride prevents. And so Diotrophes goes on his merry way, even looking to evangelical feminists for support, and all the time, people are put off attending IFB churches and Joyce Meyer concerts.

Now me myself, I am happy to believe in freedom of speech, which the communists and Diotrophes do not believe in, and so they try to prevent me. But they forget I am a freedom fighter, and I will fight for their right to act ungodly like.

I have some fine brothers here, but I seldom use the term because of something noticed over the years. It seems to be used here primarily when a brother agrees with you about something discussed. I don’t expect my brothers in the Lord to always agree with me, nor will I always agree with them. But I will hold them as brothers anyway. We're brothers because of Jesus Christ, not because of side issues, of which most threads should be categorized. But if agreement about Trump or covid or Canada or America makes us brothers, and disagreement makes it too hard to say, then for me the term brother has lost something valuable. There is enough to be sad about. We should remember the narrow road is a bumpy one.

Tim, I believe there's more than one 'accuser of the brethren'. Those who point their self righteous judgmental fingers at others are the accusers, just like Satan. There's a reason Jesus said to remove the LOG from your own eye before attempting to remove the spec from another's eye. When one is guilty of the SAME sin they accuse others of, what do they hope to accomplish? John UK, BMcCausland, and Watcher all display a spirit of haughtiness, above reproach, never wrong, always making excuses why they're right and everyone else is wrong. This is a blatant display of pride, and they do not see it...that is problematic. Referring to you as some hillbilly type of backwoods idiot is inexcusable. Stating Lurker is blind to the truth is inexcusable.
Instead of receiving any correction, the fangs come out and the veins in the neck pop out, 'let's get ready to rrrrrumble!!!'.
What a sad kind of religion that is.
Watcher started all this, "😂😆 Now there's a fairy tale if I ever heard one before. Did you put your hand over your heart when you wrote that? Amazing! You Americans are something else." So, 'Watcher's' educational background on America is the ONLY 'truth', and if you don't agree, then "So be it. Burn some sparklers while you're at it."....

Yep, I am a sinner, not a 'superwoman'. Apparently your 'two cents' are the only ones that count right? You would argue with a sign post, especially if that sign post said you were wrong.
Until God lays you in the dust, you will never know true repentance and humility.It's telling how you and your buddies like to belittle others by claiming some do not know truth, or that they are yee haw fundy types, or that Americans are above correction and reproach- yet you and your buddies show no evidence you receive any correction. The question was asked, what are you trying to accomplish, other than playing the part of the Spirit in convicting according to what you deem as 'sin'. I believe sister MS summed it up nicely,...
So be it. I won't answer any longer, as I know anything I say, even if I copy and paste scripture, will be taken out of context, and misconstrued to fuel the fire.

And Superwoman chimes in with her blessed two cents worth. I was wondering when you would jump on the wagon.

I didn't answer because I'm tired of going around the same corner over and again. It's the same old routine and I'm through with the frustration. I think there's a place on my back that hasn't been pierced with the pitchfork of hypocrisy, go ahead LB, have at 'er.

It appears there is somewhat of a tag team here, this 'team' is claiming how others, particularly 'Americans', are 'this and that'. We have one in particular chime in claiming Americans are above correction, yet HOW MANY TIMES has this SAME PERSON revealed their own haughtiness countless times here?!
It's a sad state when 'professing believers' attack and cause division.. and cannot see their OWN logs protruding extensively from their eyes.
Pride is obviously a sin EVERYONE is guilty of... this thread is a testimony to that. The DIFFERENCE is when it is *recognized* in the mind, then confessed to God. Conviction comes from the Spirit of God in the minds of the elect. IF it isn't recognized, it grows like a cancer, 'I thank you I am NOT LIKE 'others'....
The question has been presented, "What specifically do you disagree with Bro Lurker's example that lead you to think he is blind to the truth?" It has NOT been addressed. Why?
When you fail to see your shortcomings, your OWN pride filled ways, what is that comparable to in God's word? The prayers of the Pharisee reveal much.
ALL have sinned, regardless of geographical location. Being 'saved' does NOT mean you cease from sinning, that's overlooked by some who exalt 'self' over others. True humility is God given.....
