One Perfect Life - A Christmas Special Message with John MacArthur
Friday, December 9, 2016
We need to begin by saying thank you. The response to last week’s series on The Gospel According to Hillsong was explosive, far exceeding our expectations. We’re thankful to everyone who read it, shared it with others, and commented—even those of you who ultimately disagreed with us. It’s a privilege to do what we do—one we don’t take lightly. And we’re grateful for all the feedback we received.

Few issues vex the Christian like the matter of eternal security. It confuses many believers and haunts them with unresolved questions. Can I be sure that I won’t lose my salvation? What if a sin is committed that’s too big to be ignored by an all-seeing God? Is it possible that I might arrive at the great day of judgment only to find my name crossed out of the Book of Life?

The heart of the human problem is the human heart. Therapy can’t change it. Self-help gurus can’t fix it. Positive confession can’t conceal it. And self-esteem can’t convert it. Sinners cannot be persuaded into the kingdom of God. Salvation is not achieved through mental assent or emotional responses.

Truth matters, especially when it comes to worship. That ought to be obvious; you can’t properly praise the Lord if you don’t know who He is. Christ Himself was unequivocal on that point—He said true worshippers “must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:24, emphasis added).

Hillsong’s philosophy fits well with the zeitgeist of our day. The social scientists now tell us that morality is subjective, gender is fluid, and truth is an illusion. Clearly, the precise theology espoused in ancient hymns won’t get the job done anymore.

Your family probably has some kind of Thanksgiving tradition. Maybe it has to do with the food you eat or the games you play—whatever the case, you likely have holiday habits that are special to you and your family.

If you told your best friend that you hated his wife do you think he’d still be your friend? Nonetheless, there are many professing Christians who effectively tell Jesus the same thing: “I love Jesus but I can’t stand the church” (Christ’s bride as depicted in Revelation 21:9). We hear that sentiment a lot these days with growing numbers of people choosing to pursue Jesus while shunning His bride—the church.

It’s easy to find a bad church. It’s much harder to find a good church. And some believers are exhausted and disheartened by the search, while others give up altogether. But God’s people must not forsake the fellowship found only in the Body of Christ.

Consider for a moment some of the tremendous privileges and blessings the Internet and technology affords believers these days. Today we have the easiest and freest access to faithful Bible teaching that the church has ever enjoyed.

We know our limitations. Grace to You is not a local church, nor can we function in its place. We can’t offer the face-to-face fellowship you’ll find in a church. We can’t provide pastoral care, counseling, or visitations. And we can’t perform church discipline on those who are straying from the faith. Our ministry is meant to be a supplement to the local church—not a substitute for it.

How can we reconcile the evil world we live in with the good God who made it? Most of us have wrestled with that question at some point, usually when faced with an unexplainable tragedy. We can’t make the problem of evil vanish by ignoring it—it is ubiquitous. None of us will make it through life unscathed.

It should not surprise us that the world hates authority. It’s not a shock when unrepentant sinners disrespect and disregard leaders and other people in positions over them, or seek to discredit that authority altogether. That’s simply a function of their inherent rebelliousness—the same sinful self-interest and pride common to us all apart from Christ.

Many Christians have understandably looked ahead to today’s election with serious concerns, dreading the results regardless of the outcome. In light of those concerns, we asked John MacArthur to help us get some perspective on the election, and the state of the world in general.

The church in America sees what little cultural influence it has fading fast. What should believers do? How do we make sense of a world—and in particular, a government—that appears to be overtly aligned against us?

Theological trends in America almost always end up reverberating around the world. And sometimes the ripple effect becomes a full-blown tsunami by the time it reaches distant shores. Today’s featured sermon offers us a rare glimpse into the actual effects charismatic theology has had on the African continent.

The literary response to John MacArthur's book, Strange Fire, was both vigorous and rapid. Critics called on John MacArthur to tone down his rhetoric. Some responses, as in the case of R.T. Kendall, were even pre-emptive.
