Strange Fire: The Danger of Offending the Holy Spirit With Counterfeit Worship

John Macarthur

Strange Fire: The Danger of Offending the Holy Spirit With Counterfeit Worship

John Macarthur

$19.99

Paperback

What would God say about those who blatantly misrepresent His Holy Spirit; who exchange true worship for chaotic fits of mindless ecstasy; who replace the biblical gospel with vain illusions of health and wealth; who claim to prophesy in His name yet speak errors; and who sell false hope to desperate people for millions of dollars?

The charismatic movement has always been a breeding-ground for scandal, greed, bad doctrine, and all kinds of spiritual chicanery. As a movement, it is clearly headed the wrong direction. And it is growing at an unprecedented rate.

From the Word of Faith to the New Apostolic Reformation, the Charismatic movement is being consumed by the empty promises of the prosperity gospel. Too many charismatic celebrities promote a ?Christianity? without Christ, a Holy Spirit without holiness. And their teaching is having a disastrous influence on a grand scale, as large television networks broadcast their heresies to every part of the world.

In Strange Fire, bestselling author and pastor John MacArthur chronicles the unsavory history behind the modern Charismatic movement. He lays out a chilling case for rejecting its false prophets, speaking out against their errors, showing true reverence to the Holy Spirit, and above all clinging to the Bible as the inerrant, authoritative Word of God and the one true standard by which all truth claims must be tested.

4 stars By Raj, Jul 05 2017
Macarthur methodically breaks down the Charismatic position. Thankfully, his appeal is less to history and tradition, and more to scripture exposited with good hermeneutic. Included are plenty of quotes from Charismatic proponents exposing further the lack of biblical understanding in that position. His approach is rather straight to the point so it will be difficult to read without wanting to defend oneself, however it's important that this view is considered due to it's desire to first be biblically faithful and please Christ.
