Thought Number 275... A Chair Analogy

This analogy came to me from the late D James Kennedy by way of RC
Sproul in a recent podcast:

Consider a sturdy wooden chair on the floor in front of you.

Now. Do you believe it is a chair? Good, you do well.

Do you believe it is capable of supporting your weight? Excellent.
You are on the right track.

Now ask yourself: Is the chair supporting your weight? No? Why not?
It is because you are not sitting in the chair.

In the same way, it is one thing to acknowledge that God exists. It is
another thing to affirm that Jesus is God and is able to save you. But
these affirmations do not save you. You are only saved when you have
cast yourself upon Christ and his work, giving your life over to him
for your entire support.

You are not saved until you are in Christ.

God is God... Get used to it.

  1. Dear Concerned Christian,

    James Macdonald leads a denomination of 69 churches. It is called the Harvest Bible Fellowship. Each church in this denomination operates with the same template. They are all called "churches of life groups." (If you aren't in a life group, then they don't want you in one of their churches.) What is a "life group"? The life groups are all facilitator-led groups. They exist for the purpose of group mind control. Harvest Bible Fellowship is a highly sophisticated mind control operation under a Christian covering.

    Who is the director of operations of Harvest Bible Fellowship? Bill Molinari, who also sits on the board of John Macarthur's GTY and Macarthur's international ministry, TMAI. Who else supports this abomination? John Macarthur's TMS advertizes this "church" to their grads and promotes their Harvest Training School to their grads. Several TMS grads are now leading these "churches of life groups" as other TMS grads are enrolled in the Harvest School obligated to plant more of these churches in the future. (When I contacted R Mayhue, the director of TMS, to ask why he advertizes this "church" and its training school to his seminary grads I received no reply.)

    John Macarthur considers James Macdonald to be a "close friend" and he fully supports Macdonald's Harvest Fellowship as he annually attends Macdonald's "Straight Up" conferences. "Christians" leading these "Churches of Life Groups" aren't following God's Word; they are actually following the Jewish Kabbalah.

    Fun Fact: John Macarthur's mentor at Talbot Theological Seminary was an orthodox Jewish Rabbi who often quoted from the Jewish Talmud in his writings. Macarthur has stated that the sole reason he attended this seminary was to be mentored by this rabbi.
