In Strange Fire, bestselling author and pastor John MacArthur chronicles the unsavory history behind the modern Charismatic movement.
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, MacArthur lays out a chilling case against the modern Charismatic movement that includes:
Rejecting its false prophets.Speaking out against their errors.Showing true reverence to the Holy Spirit.Clinging to the Bible as the inerrant, authoritative Word of God and the one true standard by which all truth claims must be tested.
EXCELLENT! 5 STARS for STRANGE FIRE!
I LOVED listening to this Book on AudioBooks! The narrator did a nice job.. & John MacArthur did a grrreat job with this book.. Such in-depth research was done on this Book. JMac gave sooo many examples and quotes too from the various False Teachers. I bought the book on iBooks as well.. and also have the Paper version..Was so glad they came our with the Audio version right away.. It saved me so much time having the audio version so I could get things done around the house, etc. This Book is a MUST read PLUS it's definitely a CLASSIC on this most important topic.. Whether you Love-John-MacArthur-or-not you will not regret buying this book or audiobook called "STRANGE FIRE".. It will challenge you to read Gods Word.. Believe it.. And Obey it VS all these MANY so-called visions & spiritual experiences & false teachers who have may have seemingly nice personalities on TV but are doing & saying things contrary to Gods Word! // :)
$21.00 for an audio book? No thanks. To bad this is such a great book. But wont pay that for it. Thus the low rating. The book is 5 stars. But this price is a rip off. Almost twicw what he book cost.
