Was the primary message of Jesus an answer to the question: “How to get to heaven?”
Is it really “silly” (MacArthur’s words, not mine) to expect Jesus to fix the petty problems in our lives?
Is this a “straw man” argument — or is MacArthur truly hitting McLaren on the nose?
Also, is “the truth” of the Bible always and readily clear? Are Emergent folks rejecting the Word because it’s not clear and they don’t like what it says?
Interesting perspective on things… Be sure to check out TallSkinnyKiwi’s take on MacArthur’s book (mentioned in the video), I believe he’s fair in his critique of what is going on in America.
