John MacArthur – How did God Guide the Biblical Writers?

Robots. To the unilluminated mind, that’s what we are under the control of a sovereign God—just mindless automatons executing divine orders for His pleasure. And while the Lord could control and direct His creations that way, He doesn’t—instead He works through our wills, our intellects, and our personalities to accomplish His sovereign ends.

John MacArthur – How Did God Inspire His Word?

Have you ever watched an athlete or musician give “an inspired performance”? Have you ever heard your pastor preach what might be called “an inspired sermon”? Most of us have heard the word “inspired” used in those ways, but frankly I question that kind of terminology. If people give inspired performances or preach inspired sermons, …

John MacArthur – Calling the Church to Repent (Part 1)

John MacArthur – Why Integrity Matters

John MacArthur – A Challenge for Christian Communicators

Importance of Clear Communication No preacher likes the feeling of being tongue-tied — especially when it happens in the pulpit. Those awkward moments when his brain gets stuck in neutral and his mouth continues to rev are the nightmare of every preacher. It can be especially dangerous when everything he says is taped. A few …

John MacArthur – God’s Word on Homosexuality: The Truth About Sin and the Reality of Forgiveness

“All you need is love.” So said the Beatles. If they had been singing about God’s love, the statement would have a grain of truth in it. But what usually goes by the name love in popular culture is not authentic love at all; it is actually a deadly fraud. Far from being “all you …
