Standing Up for Truth

John MacArthur was recently on the Larry King Live show again. (I cannot imagine the difficulty of this task; being accurate and winsome in a sound byte culture. All with Larry having the authority to interrupt or change the subject on a whim!)

At one point, the gentleman on the right responds to MacArthur:

Reverend, as a Catholic I'm really offended listening to you. You're so busy looking for specific words in the Bible that you actually miss the message of the gospel. We're supposed to love each ourselves and love each other. And you're really missing the core mission of the gospel.

Click this link to see MacArthur's gracious and accurate response. I praise God that while King had him on the show for a political issue, MacArthur is clear from out of the gate that his concerns are not political in nature.

You and I will never appear on Larry King Live, but oh that we would seek every opportunity to proclaim the message of our Glorious Savior!

Is that the official flower of the log cabin republicans?
