John MacArthur has been one of the few glimmers of light as a biblical shepherd during the coronavirus pandemic. As most churches are caving to the demands of the state to shutdown or limit worship, MacArthur has declared that his church will obey God rather than man.

MacArthur has been under fire from the governments who continue to threaten to shut down his church or take other actions such as shutting off the utilities to his church — which have already happened — but he’s also been under fire from those whom he’s called friends. Namely, other church leaders.

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Southern Baptist president, JD Greear has now proclaimed that his church will be dismantled until at least January, prompting a response from MacArthur and his staff. One of MacArthur’s elders, Phil Johnson, appeared to imply that JD Greear was a wolf in sheep’s clothing for doing so.

MacArthur released a video statement last night explaining his strong stance for continuing to keep his church open and then declared that those who refuse to do so, mentioning those leaders (JD Greear) who have shut down their churches until January, either don’t know what a church is or don’t know how to shepherd their people.

We’ll pick it up where we left off last time where I burned up my uncle’s kitchen, drunk in the morning, left an apology note and ran away. I was 17 years old at that time, BTW. I just couldn’t face him. I pretty much just found someplace to sleep outside every night...
