John MacArthur Blasts The Gospel Coalition: “Woke,” “Useless Entity,” “Like Christianity Astray”

We at The Dissenter have been warning about The Gospel Coalition (TGC) and its clones like Together for the Gospel (T4G) for years and years upon years ago, we concluded that these organizations were compromised in such a way that they shouldn’t even be called “Christian.” Yet, Evangelical churches around the globe still flocked to these organizations because of the notoriety of those involved in them. Names like Tim Keller, Don Carson, Al Mohler, Russell Moore, etc., are like Apostles in the eyes of today’s compromised church leadership.

However, in a recent Q&A, John MacArthur poured a little bit of water on that fire by calling out these woke institutions for what they are. When asked by a member about these organizations, he said that when they started out, they seemed to have noble intentions to bring people together and unite them around the gospel. He said that when they “bought into the deceptiveness of the woke movement and the racial baiting that was going on a couple of years ago,” that it “quickly put them out of business.”

He also blasted T4G for honoring Martin Luther King alongside R.C. Sproul a few years ago:

I was thinking the other day how interesting it was that the last panel discussion that I was on at a T4G event was to honor R .C. Sproul who had died. And I spoke at his funeral, that this was, I think, 2017 or 2018.

So the T4G guys wanted to honor him with a panel, and we spent an hour and 15 minutes. And it was just beautiful tributes to R .C. from all of us who knew him so very, very well. And the strange irony was a year later they did the same thing for Martin Luther King, who was not a Christian at all, whose life was immoral.

I’m not saying he didn’t do some social good, and I’ve always been glad that he was a pacifist, or he could have started a real revolution. But you don’t honor a non-believer who misrepresented everything about Christ and the gospel in an organization alongside honoring somebody like R .C. Sproul.

He said that when TGC reached out to him a few years ago wanting to hold a conference at his church, he agreed. But when he saw the list of speakers, he backed out, noting that some of the speakers at the conference were incompatible with their mission.

And so we said, well, we’ll certainly consider that, send us the program that you would like to have here. And I remember they sent us a program of speakers that we would never, ever, ever have here, dealing with issues of gender and all that kind of thing.

He concluded by stating that these “amorphous evangelical organizations without diligent, fastidious, vigilant leadership to keep them faithful to the truth of Scripture, just wander off into everything and they become, I guess in a sense, useless as an entity,” and compared them to the organization Christianity Today, calling them “Christianity Astray.”

Unfortunately, John MacArthur was a little weaker in his condemnation of TGC contributor, Alistair Begg’s approval of homosexual weddings than we would have liked for him to be. But we’re still grateful that he has a clear head on The Gospel Coalition and these dangerous organizations.
