Dear Fred Butler, is that you up there? Wouldn’t be surprised.
You should be careful of what you ask for, because I am about to answer. You commented on the post of Mike Ratliff - “Lies and Deceit”? Lies and Deceit from me? We don’t think that Mike liked our post on his defense of Mac Arthur! Who would have thunk? Now you expect me to be impressed with your wisdom on the matter? You can find Fred Butler’s wisdom here, apparently a big shot at Mac Arthur’s church! I would like you to pay special attention to the title, “My interview with a crackpot” . Already sounds like a humble servant of God, no wisdom or tactics of the world here, just a fear and trembling that upholds the Lord Jesus and of course not Mac Arthur! Butler goes on:
“My Church is occasionally besieged by a variety of kooks, some more notorious than others, who are troubled by something my pastor said, or taught, or doesn't teach firm enough; or whom he fellowships with or doesn't fellowship with, or refuses to separate from.
Generally these assortment of nuts are lone crusaders, but sometimes there may be two or three. They may picket with ugly, hand made signs expressing their criticisms of why our Church or pastor offends them, but it seems as though all of them hand out literature allegedly "documenting" the "bad" teaching coming from the pulpit.
You know, Fred Butler, maybe these “kooks” as you call it, is just God showing displeasure with Grace to You? Of course you know that’s not the case, it is just the DEVIL, right? Come on guy, you are the one with the horns, the devil is there and present at every meeting of Grace, my guess, the “kooks” on the outside are demonstration of the judgment of God against you and your supreme leader, Mac Arthur! If you truly have the wisdom of God, if you fear and tremble as you read the Word of God, then why do you have to resort to the wisdom of this world, to uphold yourselves? You got to resort to broad - brushing everyone or anyone as, KOOKS - CRACKPOTS - ASSORTMENT OF NUTS - LONE CRUSADERS and so on, that oppose you!?
As I have previously said about you and your kind, you do not have the love of God, just a desire to uphold “YOUR Church, YOUR Pastor (Mac Arthur), you use the wisdom of this world to defame your opponents! You are no different than any wicked group of this world wishing to defame their opponents to cast a better light on themselves! You are just political hacks, doing the work of your father, the devil!
If indeed, Bob Johnson was off up in the clouds (my words), then you, who have the wisdom of God, could have dealt with it, you didn’t because you can’t! Mac Arthur is aligned with and associates with that which brings glory to his own sorry hind, he is a harlot in “Biblical Exegesis Clothes”! He only rebukes that which is so far out there as to bring to himself the praise and adoration of men who are wicked enough themselves to buy into it! If you and your words are the example of the fruit of Mac Arthur we must examine, then we have our proof enough! Where is the wisdom of God that begins with the fear of God? Based on your words, not in you! This sight is not about upholding Bob Johnson nor John Coleman, it is about upholding JESUS CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD!
You have demonstrated to us your lack of Godly wisdom and fear in your defense of Mac Arthur, now why don’t you go laugh it off with your buddies and just call us kooks as well!
