But I would definitely not argue that every pedobaptist is cut off from God’s blessing!
In it John Mac Arthur accuses the charismatic movement as a whole of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit: Here is a transcript of the relevant portions:“Why don’t evangelical leaders speak against this movement? Look When somebody attacks the person of Christ the Evangelical world rises up and says “no, no, no! This is very serious and concerning since Jesus describes blasphemy against the Holy Spirt as the unforgivable sin (Mark -29).
Christians should not accuse one another lightly of this sin.
I have reviewed the other other media clips by Mac Arthur and in various places he speaks of “aberrations, heresies, terrible manipulation and deception,” claims that in the Charismatic Movement an implanting of the Word of God into people “just doesn’t happen,” and that the movement has a “wrong understanding of Scripture.”Its clear that Mac Arthur is an extreme cessationist as he even states in one of these clips that he believes that we cannot bind Satan, something that I am surprised to hear, since even traditional denominations have exorcism rites.
In the clip “Why is it important to warn people against charismatic error?
I believe that whatever your view on the charismatic issue you should not be called a blasphemer and heretic. UPDATEA reader has kindly pointed us to a previous sermon in which Mac Arthur expands on what he means by charismatics blaspheming the Holy Spirit:“Mostly this comes in the professing church from Pentecostals and Charismatics who feel they have free license to abuse the Holy Spirit and even blaspheme His holy name. Endless human experiences, emotional experiences, bizarre experiences and demonic experiences are said to come from the Holy Spirit…visions, revelations, voices from heaven, messages from the Spirit through transcendental means, dreams, speaking in tongues, prophecies, out of body experiences, trips to heaven, anointings, miracles. The Charismatic Movement has stolen the Holy Spirit and created a golden calf and they’re dancing around the golden calf as if it were the Holy Spirit. They’ve exploited the Holy Spirit and demanded to be able to do that in an uncriticized manner.
