MACARTHUR: How ‘Evangelical’ Is The Evangelical Movement?
What denominational label would best describe the following person’s religious beliefs?

He claims to be a committed, born-again Christian but isn’t sure that Jesus is truly God incarnate. He isn’t convinced that God has infallible knowledge of (much less sovereign control over) the future. He doesn’t believe the Bible is truth without any mixture of error. He doesn’t believe what the Bible says about how the universe was created. He doesn’t believe people must acknowledge Christ as Lord and Savior—or even know anything about him—in order to have God’s favor. He doesn’t believe Satan is literally real. He doesn’t believe God is full of wrath against sin. And he certainly doesn’t believe in eternal punishment. In fact, he doesn’t particularly care for words like sin, atonement, repentance, expiation, or propitiation. He dismisses such terminology as useless religious jargon that fails to communicate ...

I find it depressing when a pope thinks, and acts better than many evangelical Christians

Now Jim, you know fibbing isn’t Christian. That you agree with this particular pope is expected. He’s on your political wavelength. That you post his opinion is evidence.

Governments have made great efforts to put the well-being of their people first, acting decisively to protect health and to save lives ...Yet some groups protested, refusing to keep their distance, marching against travel restrictions — as if measures that governments must impose for the good of their people constitute some kind of political assault on autonomy or personal freedom! Looking to the common good is much more than the sum of what is good for individuals.

It is all too easy for some to take an idea — in this case, for example, personal freedom — and turn it into an ideology, creating a prism through which they judge everything. ---Pope Francis

Good points, accept the part about baptism because without baptism a person does not have Christ and therefore would not be saved.

What about the thief on the cross? Surely the baptism that is required is of the Holy Spirit and not water baptism. Many will have water baptism and yet not be saved Acts 8:13-21

I take it you still believe in the only valid baptism being the baptism with the Spirit? And that water baptism is not biblical? So that the baptisms you mention in your post are all Spirit baptisms not water baptisms?

There are those who base their hope of eternal life on the fact that they “grew up in the church,” but there are multitudes of mice and cockroaches that grew up in the church, and none of them are saved. The Bible says “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” It doesn’t say he that speaks in tongues, or he that joins the church, or he that has been baptized, or he that has “always been a Christian” has eternal life, but only HE THAT HATH THE SON. It behooves each and every one of us to ask ourselves, “Do I have the Son?”
Absolutely right. Many call themselves Christian, but they will find out on that day, that the Lord Jesus "never knew them".

Amen Watcher, very wise comment.
Thanks for the information! Sounds like the apostate Charismatics/Pentecostals. My mom went to a tent meeting once and they said that anyone who was saved spoke in tongues as a sign. Anyway, she went up front and nothing was happening. Then someone came up to her and told her to just start mumbling and it would come to her.
The above groups either consider you to be not saved or a second class Christian if you haven’t spoken in tongues.
I only attended catholic churches as a child, so I consider myself to have been unchurched. Praise the Lord, I didn't have to unlearn much if anything.
Sounds so familiar with me and my wife. Just mumble...say anything and it'll come!😭

I did grow up in a Catholic household but gravitated to a Pentecostal/Word of Faith background until I was biblically saved and had my eyes opened to it all. Thank God.

The harm these churches inflict on children when they put them through this sort of rubbish. Instead of focusing on discipleship, all they want are numbers.

I think MacArthur was completely wrong about taking the mark of the beast and then being forgiven. And I think he is also on record for saying he doesn’t remember being saved. I think he said that he was raised in a Christian family and he never felt unsaved or something like that.

Indeed I heard the very same things. When I was in school ("Christian-based"), they brought in a couple that was bound and determined to get us all saved. They had us all up at the front of our chapel and were getting everyone to speak in tongues, etc., and then they confirmed that I was finally saved and was able to speak in tongues with the rest. A great success in their eyes, but wholly foolish in God's. They ended up telling my parents that I was saved and they responded by saying that I was always saved. I grew up in a so-called Christian home and was always saved. Obviously, if you knew me as a child, you would have known the work of Grace was as far from me as from hell itself. Just because you are raised in a Christian home doesn't make you a Christian any more than being raised in a garage, makes you a car.

But, I have learned much from his ministry and teachings. I have never listened to any pastor or theologian and agreed with everything they believe or teach.

But, we all draw lines in the sand and drawing lines is a good thing.

He dismisses such terminology as useless religious jargon that fails to communicate anything to normal people. But in reality, what he despises most of all about those words is the underlying doctrine of substitutionary atonement, which he also doesn’t believe in. He is convinced that God will forgive without demanding any payment for guilt.

The above is from the article.

These folks are simply cultural christians like most in the U.S. who use His name.

The Wokest of the woke are Russell Moore, JD Greear and sadly... Al Mohler. When confronted, they dodge, when called out right for marginalizing the gospel, they take a tight grip of their pedestal and pronounce anyone critical of them as being counter revolutionary.. I mean, breaking fellowship.
The Baptist version of evangelism faded after the commercialization of music and bible sales and translations became more important the preaching the Word of God.

while when you reject God's Word (King James Bible) and are steeped in calvinism I guess that happens. (or predestined to happen)

Quite so Adriel. I am evangelical and I know what the expression means. It comes from a greek word, and it involves preaching the gospel, which of course all true churches ought to be doing.

“”Recent surveys reveal that a large percentage of people who self-identify as “evangelical” do not understand even the most basic principles of gospel truth.””

In a fallen world which thinks that Roman Catholics and Episcopalians are real Christians, terms like evangelical will go right over their heads.

For decades now the word evangelical has been applied by false witnesses to themselves. When it is clear that they are no more Christian than a plastic duck.

But deception has been the work of Satan and his demonic forces since the beginning. Raising the false church and false religions is one of Satan’s classic deceits in the fallen world. Even fast talking used car salesmen have been identified by the term evangelical.

Changing the definition of words is another deceit in society we have observed. All we have to do to make abominations acceptable to the ignorant is call them “gay”
Thus one little three letter word enables the reprobates to ditch the Bible. THAT is where we find society today.

Many churches today use the religion of PC Liberalism so they can be nice to the sodomites and embrace them into what the describe as “church” — And the world loves them for it.

Words with double meaning help Satan to deceive mankind.
