“Sometimes what might appear to be a kind of a one on a scale of 1 to 10 is still an assault on the church and on the truth. So it isn’t that we all of a sudden become courageous when we face some kind of large scale attack, it’s that we just keep doing exactly what we’ve done all along, no matter what comes and what goes.”
(Protestia) During yesterday’s Q&A Chapel service, John MacArthur addressed the question of courage in the face of adversarial circumstances. He utilized the COVID church lockdowns and talked about the flack and pushback he received from 9Marks ministry….
He referred to a July 2020 article by Jonathan Leeman, who cautioned churches not to follow Grace Community Church’s footsteps of insisting that churches remain open.
Specifically, he called out the advice that the Church should not push back so hard and save their ammunition for bigger battles, with MacArthur retorting that every instance that attacks the church is worth going to the mat for.
