Product Description

Offending the Holy Spirit is no laughing matter---but Pastor MacArthur believes that millions do it every day. In this sobering book, he draws lessons from the biblical accounts of Nadab, Abihu, Ananias, Sapphira, and the Pharisees, and cautions against contemporary charismatic "false worship practices" such as barking, laughing, inaccurate prophecies, and extrabiblical revelation. 240 pages, hardcover from Nelson.

Publisher's Description

What would God say about those who blatantly misrepresent His Holy Spirit; who exchange true worship for chaotic fits of mindless ecstasy; who replace the biblical gospel with vain illusions of health and wealth; who claim to prophesy in His name yet speak errors; and who sell false hope to desperate people for millions of dollars?

The charismatic movement has always been a breeding-ground for scandal, greed, bad doctrine, and all kinds of spiritual chicanery. As a movement, it is clearly headed the wrong direction. And it is growing at an unprecedented rate.

From the Word of Faith to the New Apostolic Reformation, the Charismatic movement is being consumed by the empty promises of the prosperity gospel. Too many charismatic celebrities promote a "Christianity" without Christ, a Holy Spirit without holiness. And their teaching is having a disastrous influence on a grand scale, as large television networks broadcast their heresies to every part of the world.

In Strange Fire, bestselling author and pastor John MacArthur chronicles the unsavory history behind the modern Charismatic movement. He lays out a chilling case for rejecting its false prophets, speaking out against their errors, showing true reverence to the Holy Spirit, and above all clinging to the Bible as the inerrant, authoritative Word of God and the one true standard by which all truth claims must be tested.

Author Bio

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 Master’s 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 Twelve Ordinary Men, and One Perfect Life.

    John MacArthur mixing naturalism with the bible

    As one who was previously burned by a charismatic church and who has seen first-hand the destruction of using the gifts immaturely, even inappropriately, I know exactly what it means for the wrong fire to be a foul offering. However, I'm very concerned to see how MacArthur condemns something encouraged in scripture, if indeed, God is changeless. You see, church history shows the church has an awful habit of mixing cultural beliefs with church practice. And I'm afraid MacArthur, a true man of God, has been influenced by the scientific naturalism prevalent in our western beliefs and culture and trusted by the western church. The problem with this is, naturalism is at odds with Jesus, the apostles, church history, and our Eastern brothers a sisters. Eastern Christians (China, Middle East, India, etc.) who are persecuted by their governments and families are also facing persecution from their Western brethren for something the West doesn't understand because it doesn't fit into our framework or understanding. But in cultures where the supernatural is everywhere and the worship of false gods is real, these gifts are not only normal, they are needed to distinguish the one true God. What would you say to these persecuted believers who heal in Jesus name and God is glorified? Who cast out demons and set people free from Satan? Who supernaturally communicate the gospel across language barriers? What would you say to the Corinthian church who were using gifts of the Holy Spirit immaturely, even wrongly but still was powered by God? Will you still condemn the gift if God is glorified? Because a house divided cannot stand. And should you implicate such things are not of the origin of God but of Satan when God is glorified, be careful: "If I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your own exorcists cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. 28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come to you. 29 Or how can one enter a strong mans house and plunder his property, without first tying up the strong man? Then indeed the house can be plundered. 30 Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. 31 Therefore I tell you, people will be forgiven for every sin and blasphemy, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven." John Macarthur you are a man of intelligence, don't drink the cool-aid of naturalism from the western gods and mix it against the word of God.

    I won't bore you with repeating all the reviews listed here. It was well written, documented, and forthright. And yes, it was a bit strident. We aren't used to people naming names. I for one appreciate it. Why not. What I am amazed by is that a Jehovah's witness left a review (negative of course) and SIX people, so far, found it helpful. For those really ignorant in their theology, the JW's are a heretical non-Christian religion. They deny virtually every cardinal Christian doctrine there is. And yet six people found the review helpful. Please John, don't insult the charismatics? Perhaps if believers would actually study their scriptures John wouldn't have so much work to do. Swallow a camel and choke on a gnat for sure. Wake up people. Buy the book. Ignore the tone. Learn something and leave your emotions on the nightstand. Blessings

    This book was very well written. I felt I was becoming lax in how I looked at things and this author made me see the truth. Every Christian in our world today should read this book. I love how the author states exactly what he thinks and backs it up with scripture.

    This is the worst reading experience I have ever had. --- I do not recommend this reading. The author condemns ALL charismatic movements, period. --- The Holy Spirit provide gifts to everyone and is except to you to use it well. If he consider himself gifted in the knowledge of the word of God, he failed to show that the Holy Spirit corrects, is counselor, a guide and encourage others. When you move in the Holy Spirit you do not demonize your fellow christians, neither send them to hell. Instead, you instruct with love and kindness to encourage change and spiritual growth. I think the author need time in prayer and fasting before he commits to talk about the Holy Spirit. I do not watch TV, but the rare times I have watched some TV christian programing I have found some not to benefit the gospel of Jesus Christ and I do agree that there are things thats needs correction. But to go as far as saying ALL pentecostals, and ALL charismatic movement is erroneous, I must say the author has failed to have reasonable judgement.
