I was taking a little time tonight catching up on the many blogs I haven't read for months and was really shocked by this evening's post from Imonk. In it he featured two clips from a recent interview Kirk Cameron had with John MacArthur on TBN. Yes, you heard me right, MacArthur was on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.
I don't share this in order to unfairly disparage TBN, but I do have great concern about the damage some of the teachings on the network has done for the cause of God's Kingdom in the world. MacArthur rightly defends the truth of the Gospel and the lack of prosperity promised in this life for followers of Jesus. More could have been said about the spiritual benefits of our union with Christ, but I appreciate how MacArthur worked very hard to define an understanding that accentuated the need for those in the prosperity camp to question some of the foundational beliefs they have embraced and taught.
