John MacArthur

I post these YouTube videos of John MacArthur not because I agree with him a 100% but he has something to say to the Christian evangelical world. I have not read books by John MacArthur in many years. I did read his book "Charismatic Chaos" [Signs & Wonders, Speaking In Tongues, Health, Wealth, & Prosperity, Charismatic Televangelism, Does God Still Speak Today?] by John MacArthur. I also have read these other books by MacArthur-

"The Gospel According To Jesus: What Does Jesus Mean When He Says "Follow Me"?" by John MacArthur

"Our Sufficiency In Christ: Three Deadly Influences That Undermine Your Spiritual Life" by John MacArthur

I might have other books by John MacArthur in our library. I do not know. In these videos MacArthur mentions John Piper. I use to read books by Piper but no longer do.

"God's Passion for His Glory: Living The Vision Of Jonathan Edwards With The Complete Text of "The End For Which God Created The World"" by John Piper

"The Supremacy Of God In Preaching" by John Piper

"Future Grace: The Purifying Power Of Living By Faith In. . ." by John Piper

"Desiring God: Meditations Of A Christian Hedonist" by John Piper

Desiring God

When I hear John MacArthur's lectures what comes to my mind is Reformed Scholasticism, which is not bad. Check out this book, "Introduction To Reformed Scholasticism" by Willem J. Van Asselt. John MacArthur mentioned in the video the name Carl R. Trueman. Check out this book edited by Carl R. Trueman and R. S. Clark, "Protestant Scholasticism: Essays in Reassessment". I also like this book by Carl R. Trueman, "The Claims of Truth: John Owen's Trinitarian Theology".

Like I have written in the Past I left the Charismatic movement back in 1975 when I started reading the 17th century English Puritans. The Puritans wrote massive books on the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit, which I urge you to check out. For example the 17th cent. Puritan John Owen wrote a massive two volume work on the Holy Spirit that has been reprinted by the Banner of Truth Trust.

Well more could be written but later.
