- Is experience a valid test of truth?

- Does the Bible promise health and wealth?

The charismatic movement of the past quarter-century has made an impact on the church unparalleled in history. But one legacy of the movement is confusion and mushy thinking. In Charismatic Chaos, John F. MacArthur calls for biblical evaluation and analyzes the doctrinal differences between charismatics and non-charismatics in the light of Scripture. "My principal concern," writes John MacArthur, "is to call the church to a firm commitment to the purity and authority of the Scriptures, and thereby to strengthen the unity of the true church." To tough questions that seem to divide, Charismatic Chaos provides tougher answers that strive to unite. This book tackles such questions as - Is experience a valid test of truth? - Does God still give revelation? - Prophets, fanatics, or heretics? - Does God still heal? - What should we think of the Signs and Wonders movement? - Does the Bible promise health and wealth?
John MacArthur has served as the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, since 1969. His ministry of expository preaching is unparalleled in its breadth and influence; in more than four decades of ministry from the same pulpit, he has preached verse by verse through the entire New Testament (and several key sections of the Old Testament). He is president of the Masters University and Seminary and can be heard daily on the Grace to You radio broadcast (carried on hundreds of radio stations worldwide). He has authored a number of bestselling books, including The MacArthur Study Bible, The Gospel According to Jesus, Twelve Ordinary Men,and One Perfect Life.

otis5 Stars Out Of 5Very good workAugust 3, 2015otisQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a very good book. I'm sure charismatics are not pleased with it, but unlike them, he is using the word of god to back his viewpoints
Michael Goldschmidt5 Stars Out Of 5Charismatic ChaosOctober 25, 2014Michael GoldschmidtMacArthur powerfully shows that the charismatic movement is bad Christianity.
Jerry3 Stars Out Of 5January 27, 2014JerryMacArthur makes many valid points...HOWEVER, he also displays a total ignorance and misunderstanding in many things he says. If I follow him word for word, many of my non-charismatic friends, who are followers of MacArthur would now be considered suspect as trustworthy. It is impossible for MacAuthur to have heard from God on anything he has printed...for basically, he says 'we know longer hear from God by inspiritation etc.' Again, I do agree with him exposing error...but I must also say, he has exposed himself as being in error as well.
My biggest issue is his use of the word: 'all charismatics'...if there is one problem child in his fellowship...then all members of his fellowship should be labeled as 'problem children and unreliable as well.'
Benny MacWyomingAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Biblical TheologyJuly 16, 2011Benny MacWyomingAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Having been raised in a Pentecostal ministering family and experienced most if not all of the subjects MacArthur addresses in Charismatic Chaos I could not recommend a better read, other than God's Word, which he leans on heavily to validate the cessationist view of the gifts of the Spirit he endorses.
Subjective experiences to validate understanding of God is not safe or Biblical. If your desire is to know God as He reveals Himself in His Word but are confused about spiritual experiences and how they relate to your understanding of God this is a must read.
It is written to be understood and carefully respectful of people's feelings. Anyone offended, in my opinion, is not ready for Biblical truth on the matter and has a skewed and man-centered view of the Holy Spirit and His work in the life of the Church. His work is to testify of the Son and Glorify the Father, not man.
