Thank God for steadfast men of the Gospel like John MacArthur. His wisdom and discernment cut through today's "hip" manipulation and marketing tactics of the seeker-driven churches and remind us to be careful of fads and gimmicks. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of salvation and the dilution of that truth is often hidden behind visual aids, ridiculous secular-like dramas, sermon series based on "my favorite movies" and...well, you get the picture. Sometimes I've felt so out of place in church watching a drama with references to "Will and Grace", and other absurdities. I am not ashamed of the Gospel and I am reassured by both Scripture and authors like MacArthur and Charles Stanley, that it's okay to crave expository Bible preaching instead of drive-thru sermonettes and other gimmicks of so many churches of today.
