I enjoyed this analysis of John MacArthur’s preaching. I listen to his Podcast almost every day and learn a lot. I go to a Methodist church but appreciate Reformed preaching as well — I suppose I’m just one of those wacky open-minded religious liberals!
Why do so many people listen to MacArthur, this product of all the wrong schools? How can he pack out a church on Sunday morning in an age in which church attendance has seriously lagged? Here is a preacher who has nothing in the way of a winning personality, good looks, or charm. Here is a preacher who offers us nothing in the way of sophisticated homiletical packaging. No one would suggest that he is a master of the art of oratory. What he seems to have is a witness to true authority. He recognizes in Scripture the Word of God, and when he preaches, it is Scripture that one hears. It is not that the words of John MacArthur are so interesting as it is that the Word of God is of surpassing interest. That is why one listens.

Shocking: Madonna is a sex-selling hypocrite who doesn’t want her daughter to act like she does.
Black conservative Tea Partiers — turns out that they do exist, even though they get savaged with all kinds of pathetic personal attacks for their independent thinking.
AP Notices Black TEA Partiers Called Racist Names, But, It’s Not Racism, Cause They’re Conservatives — That’s the MSM way: Unsubstantiated claims of racism by Tea Partiers = real racism. Substantiated claims of racism by Liberals = not racism.
If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fueling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically-elected governments into submission, then hear this:
We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.
Think you’ll be hearing about these threats of violence on the MSM?
Non-Christian quotes about abortion — nice summary by Reason to Stand. Be sure to check out that blog, it is excellent! I especially liked this quote. Even the world’s bloodiest religion is better grounded on abortion than the Left:
You shall not kill your awlad [born or unborn children] due to fear of poverty. We provide for them, as well as for you. Killing them is a gross offence. Quran 17:31
Dear Liberal friends,
How often did you see this clip of President Obama tripping? How many times would you have seen it if it had been President Bush?
We now conclude this reminder that the MSM is hopelessly biased.
Mormon update: Still nice neighbors and friends. Still not Christians. Same vocabulary, different dictionary. Many Mormons still as un-/mis-educated about their faith as many Christians are about theirs. Seriously, watch the whole thing if you have doubts.
