The Question Pyromaniacs Fear to Answer
Updated: 10/23/2013: None of John MacArthur’s fan boys will answer this Church edifying question which I asked publicly on June 12, 2012 . I don’t think it’s because they are scared. The reason they will not answer has nothing to do with integrity, spiritual maturity, or “being the better man” either. Why not a dialogue gentlemen?
The reason they (Dan Phillips, Phil Johnson and yes, even Frank Turk) won’t answer is because they cannot without indicting themselves as guilty in opposing the Word of God, and if they were truly honest, would destroy their premillennial dispensational love-fest and place their loyalty to God’s Word squarely in opposition to John MacArthur (the coat-tail of whom they are clinging). Here is an opportunity to edify the Church at large, so why the silence?
Update: 10/23/2012 I’m still hoping that Dan will offer an edifying response.
Update: 6/14/2012 My attempt to open up a dialogue with Dan Phillips of ‘Teampyro’ on a salvific issue has been unsuccessful. Dan thinks my sincere question a ‘waste of time’. He’s wrong. It should be discussed. – JT
Dan, you are dispensationalist. I think we both would agree to that. You are a member of ‘TeamPyro’, obvious. Phil’s gone, Frank remains silent on the subject (because he’s Amill and reluctant to speak with me or anyone else on the matter, for obvious reasons), so, I’m asking you to edify the Church by answering this question.
God Almighty, in His infallible, inerrant, written Word has declared before all men that Christ Jesus will not return to this earth to deal with sin in any way other than judgment.
And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him. – Hebrews 9:27-28 (emphasis mine)
As a dispensationalist, you say He will deal with the sin of geo-political Israel and agree with MacArthur in regards to the alleged future salvation of a people who currently despise and hate Christ, the Messiah, yet you claim will one day have opportunity for repentance and salvation when Christ returns.
Given Hebrews 9:27, 28, you stand in opposition to the Word of God.
Your answer brother?
