Description

The charismatic movement of the past quarter-century has made an impact on the church unparalleled in history. But one legacy of the movement is confusion and mushy thinking. In Charismatic Chaos, John F. MacArthur calls for biblical evaluation and analyzes the doctrinal differences between charismatics and non-charismatics in the light of Scripture. "My principal concern," writes John MacArthur, "is to call the church to a firm commitment to the purity and authority of the Scriptures, and thereby to strengthen the unity of the true church." To tough questions that seem to divide, Charismatic Chaos provides tougher answers that strive to unite. This book tackles such questions as - Is experience a valid test of truth? - Does God still give revelation? - Prophets, fanatics, or heretics? - Does God still heal? - What should we think of the Signs and Wonders movement? - Does the Bible promise health and wealth?show more

Our customer reviews

this book is surprisingly very thorough and the author has left no question unanswered. If you are a non-charismatic wanting to sharpen your stance, or perhaps someone who is in, or coming out of the charismatic church confused and perplexed with lots of unanswered questions, this book will be VERY helpful. It talks about many many issues with the charismatic sect and movement. It goes through subjects like speaking in tongues, healing, experiential Christianity, the importance of exergesis, modern praise and worship and its purpose etc etc, and explains errors and misunderstandings that Charismatics have on these subjects, via thorough and careful presentation of a proper look into scripture for each of them. As a believer who has escaped the chaos, its good to now have a full understanding of what I came out of. Very very recommended book. U will need your bible and a teachable heart to go with it.show more
