If you’ve followed John MacArthur’s teaching for any length of time, you know he rarely says much about politics, culture, or society.
It’s not that he’s uninformed on those topics. It’s that they’re often an intrusion upon the teaching of God’s Word. Evangelical Christians are already too easily distracted from the Great Commission in order to engage in partisan politics. Our corrupt culture will not be transformed for the better by political movements or pop culture anyway. That is the work of God′s Word—the gospel in particular. That′s what our ministry is devoted to (cf. 1 Corinthians 2:1-5).
In this current campaign season, however, politicians have stepped—overstepped—into spiritual and moral areas, promoting horrific wickedness and blasphemous immorality.
As John MacArthur made clear on a recent Sunday morning, these are not areas where God’s Word is silent or ambiguous. Here’s an excerpt:
That’s a brief clip from John’s message “Abortion and the Campaign for Immorality,” the first of two sermons on the spiritual and moral decline being championed by our country’s leaders. The following week, he expanded on the topic in “Homosexuality and the Campaign for Immorality.”
Both of these timely, landmark messages are available for free download. We know they will be a blessing and an encouragement to you, helping you cultivate a biblical perspective on some cultural hot buttons.
