Dr. MacArthur & Government

Recently, John came under attack for his views on government that prompted me to ask some questions.

“By the way folks…there’s no such thing as a Christian [family.]”

I would like to hear your thoughts on this.

I love Dr. MacArthur but if we talk about the family like he talks about the government we expose a serious problem afflicting and threatening all of our Christian organizations with the fall of this nation. Where will missionaries be trained when we are gone? God created government with the same intention He created family and the Church; He created them all for our good.

Is the only thing Dr. MacArthur wants from families babies and houses? Why does he favor two of the institutions (family and church) God gave over the third (government)? Is that wise? If the church is all there is then can we downplay all the family and children’s ministries too? Can we say it like he says it?

  • Do “we get diverted into the illusion that we can change our country by affecting changes in the [family]”?
  • “The reason I don’t [have a family] is because I’m not willing to alienate all the [single people.] What do I gain by that because [family] isn’t the issue?”
  • “By the way folks…there’s no such thing as a Christian [family.]”
  • “I don’t expect [family] to act in a Christian way. They have nothing to do with the church.”
  • Let’s berate this idea: “If we’re going to reach the world we’ve got to have a Christian [father] a Christian [mother] …that has nothing to do with the kingdom of God. And what you do in terms of social change lobbying hard and fast [in your family] for [family integrity] and giving too much of your time to that uh has nothing to do with the kingdom of God. That’s why Paul said we preached Christ and Him crucified. There’s a singularity in our focus; we do it with love and compassion [by taking the three talents God has given us (family, government, and church ) and we burying one of them.]

I would like to hear your thoughts on this.
