Who Said That?

question%20mark.jpg"For the believer of Reformed convictions, there is a strong allegiance to historical roots and continuity, especially insofar as the historic Reformation is concerned, distinctly emanating from Wittenberg, Geneva, and  Westminster. . . . Such claims call for a response that clearly exposes the shameful legacy of historic amillennialism,  which  is really the eschatology of Roman Catholicism."

I was thinking John MacArthur, too. Shepherd's conference?

I think I remember this from last year. Big Mac. Shame, Shame, Shame.

An embarassing statement from Johnny Mac.

Rome believes in the Trinity too. Didn't hear MacArthur call for a re-evaluation of this?

It could be any number of dispensationalists, but the consensus is so firm I won't even comment. Did he play the antisemitic trump card? Blame it on Augustine or Origen?

I had to check the source for myself because of the overwhelming guess consensus, which I did not easily accept. I have to chuckle at the idea that people overwhelmingly think it's one man with many Reformed friends, and who himself shares some Reformed convictions. I truly doubt Pastor MacArthur would say this.

Johnny Mac has been dogging almills for a long time. Don't be so naive.

Check out the link you'll see how he says the errors of amillennialism led to the errors in Roman Catholicism.

I would have almost guessed Tim LaHaye, except that the reflects some THOUGHT, however errant. After reading the other comments, I see who it probably was.

Let's not forget, though, in pointing out errors or differences in understanding, that we know and prophesy in part, and most of our fellow Believers are not setting out to teach, speak or write incorrect things (i.e. to deceive).

First of all, I don't think I am all that naive. I know about the whole controversy about Pastor MacArthur's comments on amillenialism.

Secondly, the "flavor" I got from the short quote did not sound like MacArthur to me, especially due to the first half of the quote.

Thirdly, I think some people at times react with a moblike mentality on blogs. People like MacArthur are mentioned and everyone starts to speak against the man. Personally, I find this troubling.

Fourthly, the link which I was given provides no audio or direct quote from MacArthur. Its the author of the blog who says, "And towards the end of the speech, Dr. MacArthur said that Augustine is responsible for the Dark Ages and Amil theology is responsible for the errors of Roman Catholicism." Perhaps I missed something in the blog, but I'm not so concerned with reviewing it once more. If you want to show someone what MacArthur has said, why don't you point towards his audio or writings? I don't really care about someone's blog to decide for me if something that was said was wrong. I can judge MacArthur for myself. But don't bother giving me any sources, this is not an issue which I care to look into deeply. I have more important schoolwork to do. Perhaps I should not comment anymore.

And last of all, I do know that Dr. MacArthur and other Dispensationalist go too far with some of their comments. But still, I'm quite sure it was not MacArthur who said this.

Readers, please forgive me for this long post, ignore it if you read this one sentence. I won't write anything else on this subject.

I almost feel like I am cheating by answering but since anyone who attended or listened to your last Academy session would have heard the answer I will go ahead.

My guess was Johnny Mac, but my point wasn't to prove he said "the" quote. The point was and the link was to show how he has dogged almills in the past, which you seemed to deny.

Thanks Justin for clearin' that up.
