May it never be! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written: “So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge.” (Ro 3:4)

Doug Pagitt Is Absolutely Right

HT: Ken Silva posted this on his blog.
Doug Pagitt scolds John MacArthur. Pagitt writes,

I think it might give you a more full understanding of the gospel than the one perverted by the likes of John MacArthur. I do not say “perverted” lightly, either. I really think what he communicates is so distant from the message of the Bible that it is dangerously harmful to people.

I find myself fully agreeing with Pagitt. John MacArthur is in fact preaching a perverted emergent gospel that is incongruent with the emergent beliefs. This is to be expected since MacArthur worships a different God than the god of Pagitt. MacArthur preaches a gospel that gives reverence and sovereignty to God, our Heavenly Father, Creator and Savior. Pagitt preaches a gospel where his god is a chick, and the atonement of Jesus is akin to cosmic child abuse. So I agree with Doug Pagitt 100% that MacArthur is preaching a pervert emergent gospel.
