Sir, there is a difference between a false teacher, and a True minister who makes a minor error in doctrine.

I just randomly came across your site and thought it was legitimate because I saw the name of truly false, demonic teachers who are propagating damnable doctrines in the world today.

But I was suddenly very disappointed when I saw the names of many true Ministers of the gospel, you called false

Charles Stanley and John MacArthur? Really? That made me laugh, you must either be really oppressed and deceived by the devil or probably not saved at all

John MacArthur is probably one of the most faithful Ministers of the gospel in our Churches today; and you dare ignore all his biblically sound teachings and faithfulness to the word of GOD to concentrate on his specific interpretation of Paul’s thorn in the flesh.

My friend, I exhort you to examine yourself and change your path. You are rather insulting the majesty of our LORD by being deceived to fight against the true false teachers who have crept into our Churches (Jude 4), and with self-righteous, poor discernment calling GOD’S True Ministers false

I advice you to take your website down and seek the LORD to learn to walk in discernment to HIS Light. 

Learn to test the fruit of the Spirit in a very loving and submissive heart (1John 4:1)

Remain Blessed

So murder and blasphemy are “minor errors in doctrine,” Toche? Or did you miss this part in the MacArthur writing? 

However, I also see MacArthur suffering the traits of his mentor. John MacArthur believes John Calvin’s doctrine (read The Fruit of Cain Multiplied: The Murderer John Calvin). MacArthur and Calvin believe God deliberately predestined multitudes, likely the vast majority of mankind, to eternal torment.

Yes, you heard that right. They believe that before God even created man, He planned to torment souls forever and ever. They would have no choice in the matter. They would live out their terms on earth and go to everlasting torment, in which they would suffer constant unspeakable horrors and never be destroyed, redeemed, or put out of their intense misery.

Others, far less in number, the chosen few, God would select to live with Him in bliss for all eternity. These have no choice, either. No matter how wicked and ungodly their lives might be on earth, their destiny was certain.

John MacArthur believes in the doctrine of a liar and murderer, a venerated blasphemer called a “reformer” and “great theologian.” MacArthur trusts in the Scripture interpretations and doctrines of a man who personally, with great relish, condemned true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ to slow, agonizing death at the burning stake of green faggots, simply because they believed the truth and tried to reason with Calvin about his error (Servetus was one such martyr). Being true believers, these saints didn’t persecute Calvin, but he, a certain devil, persecuted them (read The Persecutors and Persecuted). That fact in itself tells the good from the evil.

John Calvin was demonic. Those who believe and follow him do so only because they themselves don’t have the Spirit of God. They could only believe such horrific lies if deceived. So how shall John MacArthur understand the Scriptures and the heart and spirit of our beloved brother in Christ, the apostle Paul? There’s no way.

Or how about teaching people that there’s no relief from sin in this life? Is that minor, too, or did you miss this part as well? 

I could go through the remainder of MacArthur’s sermon we’ve discussed and point out so much more error, but know I’ve said enough for those with a heart of truth and some understanding and discernment. Need I say more? If so, let me know, and Lord willing, we’ll see what we can do for you.

I’ve also examined MacArthur’s Doctrinal Statement and could point out so much more claptrap – blatant lies that altogether contradict the Scriptures he presumes to preach. For example, it is stated, concerning sanctification:

In this respect, we teach that every saved person is involved in a daily conflict—the new creation in Christ doing battle against the flesh—but adequate provision is made for victory through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. The struggle nevertheless stays with the believer all through this earthly life and is never completely ended. All claims to the eradication of sin in this life are unscriptural. Eradication of sin is not possible, but the Holy Spirit does provide for victory over sin (Galatians 5:16 25; Ephesians 4:22 24; Philippians 3:12; Colossians 3:9 10; 1 Peter 1:14 16; 1 John 3:5 9).

So the Holy Spirit leads us into all truth (John 16:13), Jesus says, “Go and sin no more,” and, “Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect,” but you can’t do as He says? The apostle John says:

1 John 3:8-10 MKJV

(8) He who practices sin is of the Devil, for the Devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was revealed, that He might undo the works of the Devil.
(9) Everyone who has been born of God does not commit sin, because His seed remains in him, and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.
(10) In this the children of God are revealed, and the children of the Devil: everyone not practicing righteousness is not of God, also he who does not love his brother.

MacArthur even gives verse nine as a defense of his doctrine. The problem is there is no acknowledgment of the truth of God’s perfect work and complete deliverance from the power of sin in this world. It is unbelief. His speech tells us he doesn’t understand the things of the Spirit.

Yes, Christians can sin, but let’s understand better and give true hope for those seeking to be free of sin. Read Diabolical Doctrine: It’s Impossible Not to Sin and Do Christians Sin?

While Christian John says there’s no place for sinning, with His wonderful grace granted to deliver from all sin, Calvin John and MacArthur John say otherwise. Whom shall you believe, God or men? The apostle Paul, a man the two lesser Johns can’t understand with their carnal minds, gives the answer:

“Let it not be! But let God be true, and every man a liar; as it is written, ‘That You might be justified in Your sayings, and will overcome when You are judged’” (Romans 3:4 MKJV).

MacArthur says, “Eradication of sin is not possible, but the Holy Spirit does provide for victory over sin.” What kind of victory is that? He says that sin is overcome when we don’t sin, but sin still prevails over us? Calvinists mislead people with diabolical doctrines.

God has shown us the way He has made for us and that is to be without sin by the power of His life, even as He was the Pattern Son on earth. Will He, then, lead us to an “almost there” state in this world and not be the Omega of our salvation? Says who? Says those who have never known the Lord, that’s who. They’ve never known the right way, the impossible way, which only God can make known and apply to those He calls and chooses and makes faithful. Amen!

John MacArthur is yet another false teacher, a Calvinist disciple, who is impressive and quite capable of deceiving many simple and unstable souls. Our part is to shine the light and warn all of prevailing error, illuminating their path and steering them clear of the pitfalls in their spiritual pilgrimage.

If these things are minor to you, they’re not to our God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. So go you way with your gods and false prophets, proud mocker.

As you condescendingly advise us, “Learn to test the fruit of the Spirit in a very loving and submissive heart (1John 4:1),” have YOU learned to do so? Really?

Self-Righteousness Leading to Negativity Against Others
From: Matt To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, January 18, 2016 2:16 PM Subject: advice There is a lot of drama in the local church. I dont find too many serious enough to leave religion or politics to follow Christ. I've been doing ministry for almost 11 years now. I still do my own bible study. Some preachers frown and look down on me for not being a church member. I do what I can right caring for an elderly widow. That's a 365 day , 7 days a week job. A local preacher and his church have been friendly and helpful. Yet I don't agree entirely with how the local church pastor keeps preaching ecclesiastical yet still remains in a physical church. I've done some blogs and shared some truth and it helped some. Seems like this church craze is an obsession for some tied to a physical place for weekly Sunday worship. I been visiting a website truth central.info , it is interesting what this guy teaches. Politics controls many local churches. I came out from among them a long time ago. Local college professors are way off base calling Christianity a creed. I keep asking God to help me to focus on Him and not give in to pressures of local denominations. Baptists, Catholics and Jehovah witnesses control a lot of speech here.

Eternal Life is Quality, Not Quantity
From: Charles To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, January 08, 2016, 10:00 PM Subject: Eternal or Everlasting I saw your discussion about eternal hell in the title "The True Meaning of Forever, Everlasting and Hell. In it you make attempts at proving that everlasting does not mean forever and ever.  So tell me what to make of Jesus' words in John 3:16 when he says God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him has eternal life.  If eternal does not mean forever and ever then what exactly is Jesus saying in this verse. Are you saying when scripture talks of punishment for eternity it doesn't mean that but that when we read about eternal life we can beleieve that means forever and ever?  I am quite confused by what you write. Charles From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Charles Sent: Monday, January 18, 2016 6:56 AM Subject: Re: Eternal or Everlasting “Eternal life,” Charles, is a quality of life, not quantity. Notice that there’s no such thing as “eternal death” in the Scriptures.  The Lord said to one man, “Follow Me; and let the dead bury their dead” (Matthew 8:22). There are those living in this world who are dead because they don’t have eternal life. They are dead to God. That’s you; you’re dead, and that’s why you don’t understand these things. You’ve been born of the flesh, but not of the Spirit: John 3:1-6 MKJV (1)  And there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. ...
