Mormons Love John MacArthur And Promote Him
Because They Share The Same False Lordship Gospel

By David J. Stewart | October 2018

 Acts 15:1, “And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.”

       Kindly, Dr. John MacArthur is a deceiver and is himself deceived. 2nd Timothy 3:13, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” In other words, put one way, in the last days false prophets will expose false prophets! Mr. MacArthur refutes Mormonism as a religious cult, and yet he has been deceived himself by a false Gospel!

In his YouTube video sermon titled, “Is Faith + Works a False Gospel?,” Pastor John MacArthur says:

“Recently I had an interesting meeting. I had a meeting with the two leading theologians of Mormonism. They came down under the authority of the Seven Apostles of Mormonism from BYU [Brigham Young University]. Their trip was funded by BYU to meet with me. And the reason they wanted to meet with me, is they had been reading my books, and they find many things in my books that intrigue them, that help them understand the Bible, and with which they agree. Well, I was really kind of peaked about this meeting and I thought it's pretty curious to have the Mormons come and meet with you, and say they agree with your theology! ...They came and they said, 'We want to tell you, we've read your books, and we've even taken one of your books—Faith Works (The most definitive work that I've ever written on the issue of salvation)—And we've made it a text at BYU.' And I was pretty shocked by all of this, and so we began to talk a little bit, and they told me about all the things they agree with and the LORDSHIP OF CHRIST!...” [emphasis added]

SOURCE: Dr. John MacArthur; “Is Faith + Works a False Gospel?

If you listen to the entire sermon, you'll hear Mr. MacArthur say that he told these two leading Mormon theologians that they differ on three major issues: They have another God, another Christ, and another Gospel. Yes, that is true! However, Mr. MacArthur himself also has another “another Gospel,” which is why the Mormons agree with his false views on the role of the Lordship of Christ in salvation.

Interestingly, MacArthur exposes the pseudo-Christian cults, while being a cult leader himself! Talk about Satan casting out Satan! Mr. MacArthur's Lordship Salvation is a perverse Gospel. The Devil doesn't care if people believe the Mormon's perverse Gospel, or John MacArthur's perverse Gospel, just so long as they don't believe THE GOSPEL!

In his disturbing book, “HARD TO BELIEVE,” Dr. MacArthur says:

Don’t believe anyone who says it’s easy to become a Christian. Salvation for sinners cost God His own Son; it cost God’s Son His life, and it’ll cost you the same thing...” [emphasis added]

Cost? Where in the Holy Bible are we taught that the gift of eternal life will cost us anything? Mormons share a similar view as MacArthur on repentance...

“To repent we need to recognize and feel sorry for what we’ve done wrong, do whatever is possible to repair the damage it may have caused, and to leave our sinful behavior behind. Repentance can be difficult and requires a lot of honesty, but the joy and freedom we feel when we turn away from our sins are well worth the effort. Because Christ suffered for our sins, we can be forgiven when we repent. That’s why the Atonement is so important to all of us.”

SOURCE: Jesus Christ |

That is NOT what “repentance” means in the Scriptures. Bible repentance is simply “a change of mind,” period. Mormons errantly embellish repentance to mean being sorry, and making an effort (works) to repair the damage our sins have caused, and to forsake our sinful behavior (works). According to Mormon theology, God will only save you if you make an effort to cease from sinning.

Ray Comfort and Mormons Agree On Repentance

This heresy is exactly what Evangelist Ray Comfort teaches, who actually uses the phrase “LIVING A LIFESTYLE” while witnessing to a woman passenger on an airplane. In the following YouTube video clip, look at the BIG LIE Evangelist Ray Comfort tells this poor deceived woman. Tragically, like the Mormons do, Ray says that “repentance” means “LIVING A LIFESTYLE THAT PROVES THE REALITY OF YOUR REPENTANCE!” And then he adds, “IT'S A CONTINUAL THING!” Read for yourself what Mr. Comfort horribly teaches this woman, in this transcript from the Living Waters video...

“So if the plane goes down, you'd end up in Hell! There are two things you have to do to be saved. Do you remember what they are? I told you what they are—You've got to repent and trust the Savior! ... God's offering you everlasting life upon your repentance and faith in Christ. Who in his right mind wouldn't say, 'Whoa! That's a good offer!' (The curious woman asks what it means to “repent”?)... Have you ever said you're sorry to someone you did something wrong to? That's all repentance is—You've sinned against God; it's a matter of saying, 'God, I'm sorry,' and then LIVING A LIFESTYLE that proves the reality of your repentance. That's what repentance is, it's a continual thing! God, 'I'm sorry, but I'm not going going to lie or steal or blaspheme Your name ever again. It has that attitude! And the second thing—trust in Jesus!” [emphasis added]

SOURCE: Evangelist Ray Comfort, I've never killed anyone” (MP3 clip from video).

Dear reader, I triple-dog dare you to show me even one verse from the Holy Bible that teaches that “LIVING A LIFESTYLE” is required as part of being saved. You cannot! Now my friend, “a double-dog dare” is serious business, but a triple-dog dare is something you don't want to mess around with! I triple-dog dare you to show me even one Bible verse that agrees with these false statements by Ray Comfort.

Notice that Mormons say “repentance can be difficult,” just as John MacArthur's book titled “HARD TO BELIEVE.” In sharp contrast, the Hold Bible teaches in 2nd Corinthians 11:3, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRIST.” The Bible teaches that salvation is simple in Christ. Mormons preach ANOTHER JESUS, ANOTHER GOSPEL AND ANOTHER SPIRIT that are all of the Devil. Matthew 11:28-30, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” I find nothing in the Scriptures that even remotely suggests salvation is hard. Salvation is simple. It is free! It is easy and offered to “whosoever will.” Revelation 22;17, “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Men complicate things, but God does not! If you want to be saved, you may this moment by freely placing your trust, Oh sinner!, in the Good News of Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day. Jesus did that FOR YOU my friend, to pay for your debt of sin, so that you could be forgiven and have eternal life through faith in His precious blood!!! The choice is yours alone to make. Most men reject Him, but won't you receive the name of Jesus now, and be one of the few?

Ephesians 2:8, “For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.”

Interestingly, John MacArthur does a good job of exposing the satanic cult of Roman Catholicism, Mormonism and other false religions. Unfortunately, he is guilty himself of adding works to grace and corrupting the Gospel of free grace. Our text verse from Acts 15:1 says a group of false prophets came to Jerusalem preaching faith plus works. Acts 15:1, “And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.” That is a false Gospel. No where in the Scriptures are we taught that we cannot be saved unless we get circumcised. Likewise, no where in the Scriptures are we taught that we cannot be saved unless we turn from our sins (which is effectively trying to keep the law to be saved). Paul Washer, Ray Comfort, John MacArthur, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, Jon Piper, Billy Graham, Jimmy Swaggart, Beth Moore, John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Kirk Cameron, Chip Ingram, William Lane Craig, Jack Chick, Keith Gomez, Charles Lawson and countless other preachers all ADD turning away from sins as a requirement to be saved, which is a false Gospel. The desire to turn from sin to please God is a “fruit” of the indwelling Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), and not a result of manmade reformation.

Chicago Pastor Aiden Tozer (1897-1963) made some heretical statements about salvation. Mr. Tozer errantly states:

“In the Bible the offer of pardon on the part of God is conditioned upon intention to reform on the part of man. There can be no spiritual regeneration till there has been a moral reformation.” [emphasis added]

SOURCE: The Best of A.W. Tozer, Book 2, pg. 115-117; Compiled by Warren W. Wiersbe.

Wrong! Salvation is receiving, not giving. Salvation is the gift of God, and a gift cannot have stipulations. If Mr. Tozer is correct that salvation is conditioned upon a willingness to turn from sins, then eternal life CANNOT be a gift. Think about it! A gift by every definition is completely free, with no strings attached! If I buy you a birthday gift, but first require you to change some behavior, then it cannot truly be a gift. Banks often falsely advertise giving a “gift” to people who open a new account. It cannot be a gift, because you are required to open a new account to receive it. That is a reward, not a gift. Salvation is not a reward. It is not a contract, where you must meet certain obligations to get it and keep it! Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Nothing in life is free! That is what is meant by “the gift of God is eternal life THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD”! Jesus paid our sin debt!

Mr. Tozer requires sinners to “reform” themselves before they can be saved. This goes totally contrary to the plainest teaching in the Bible. Romans 4:5, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” Mr. Tozer is teaching works salvation!!! Salvation is a free gift, freely given and freely received. The Lord only justifies “THE UNGODLY,” not the ungodly who have intentions of no longer being ungodly, but the ungodly, just as they are! Religion is the worst thing that ever happened to this sin-cursed world! Religion wants to fit us with glasses, but the Lord wants to open our eyes!

May I remind you of the precious Words our Lord spoke in John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” Believe and the work is done! BELIEVE AND THE WORK IS DONE!!! We are saved by believing, not by repenting, but no one has ever believed who didn't also repent, which is simply a change of mind unto the Gospel itself.

“That payment that Christ made, He put it to your account... Do you realize the opportunity that God has given to us, to be able to 'GO INTO ALL THE WORLD.' And the thing that bothers people, is this thing about sin, because of the guilt that it brings, and all the wickedness that it brings; and you and I are the ONLY hope the people in this world—God has left us here and we are their only hope, if we don't explain the Gospel and make it clear!” —Pastor Ralph “Yankee” Arnold; a quote from his sermon, “A Study of Romans Chapter 10.”

“And brother, any time anybody ever casts any reflection upon the accuracy and the inspiration—verbal inspiration—of this Bible, I'll guarantee you he was inspired by the demons. I'll guarantee you! I don't care if he's got a 'reverend' in front of his name. I don't care if he has a clerical collar on. I don't care what school he's been to. He's of the Devil if he says that the Bible is not verbally inspired by God! —Dr. Jack Hyles, a great quote from the awesome MP3 sermon titled, “Satan's masterpiece.”

BATTLE OF THE AGES (MP3 by Dr. Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)

“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.” ―Elie Wiesel

I am appalled at the indifference amongst professed Christians today concerning the corrupting of God's Word. They just don't care which Bible is God's Word. I'm talking about thousands of shameful apostate religious colleges today, that are INDIFFERENT toward the hundreds of perverted English Bibles, all of which are the Devil's way of depriving people of the true and pure Word of God. Consequently, there are many false plans of salvations being taught in the churches today, mainly the heresy of manmade repentance, aka, Lordship Salvation. Here is a truthful quote from Pastor Jack Hyles...

“God has a special rebuke, again and again and again in the Bible,
toward those people who keep their neutrality in the work of God!”
—SOURCE: Dr. Jack Hyles, a quote from the great MP3 sermon, “Where Were You In The Battle?

“The Lord gave the word: great was the company
of those that published it.”
—Psalms 68:11

“How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
—Psalms 119:103

3rd John 1:8, “We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth.”

“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places
