"it is a travesty to make snfuil people comfortable in a church.I like MacArthur's theology for the most part, but this is just dumb. One might as well tell Jesus He shouldn't have comforted anyone.The point of real seeker sensitivity is not to water down the Gospel, as all the critics assume we do. It is to remove all the man-made barriers to the Gospel.The only thing that should offend a seeker's sensibilities (and our own) is the scandal of the cross our sin in the light of God's sacrifice and holiness.Lo and behold, here's John MacArthur saying almost the same thing!Wow, you found two people who agree with each other!MacArthur took a stance against the modern seeker-friendly movement, which he said is often guilty of exchanging biblical exposition for cleverly crafted yet shallow messages, omitting potentially offending truths and conforming itself to resemble a lost world.This is a blanket characterization based on the abuses of a few. I don't doubt some modern churches do this, but I've never personally enountered any. It's bad form to ascribe the sins of a few to the movement as a whole. I may as well impugn the traditional church for the hypocrisy, arrogance, and other sins found in many.People should walk into church, and it should be nothing like the worldHe must have the most sinless church in the world. The very place for sinners is the church. Maybe in his church you can't get in until your life is all nice and neat and put together, but in mine, we are very much like the world full of hurting and imperfect people hopeful and desperately needing the love and grace of God.The truth, I think, is not that these critics really think seeker churches are compromising, but that they have a distaste for anything different. But these folks are just as devoted to churchy traditions as seeker churches are to reaching the lost.On both sides, some churches are guilty of asking people to come to Christ on man's terms seeker churches sometimes on the sinner's terms, traditional churches sometimes on the church's terms.Both could benefit from adopting God's terms, which have little to nothing to do with what kind of music you play, what style of sermon the preacher preaches, whether you stand or sit during certain songs or prayers, whether you have pews or chairs or steeples or stained glass.I can't get beyond how horrible it seems to some people for a church to make evangelism a priority, rather than some side ministry some do on Monday nights or something."

"A Scottish or Irish surname meaning "son of Arthur", a novel way to honour an ancestor with a name mostly associated with his own generation." May. 27, 2008:
