why are we surprised?

Bob Bixby thinks he is disappointed with John MacArthur, but he hopes not. Why?

Because John MacArthur is going to preach at the Billy Graham Pastors Institute at the Cove in North Carolina. Bob is surprised, disappointed, but holds out some hope…

Will MacArthur’s visit be affirming to the BGEA? Of course. Unless, of course, John gets prophetic as he is sometimes known to do.

If God has written Ichabod over the door of a house, John, why enter it unless you’re going there to preach in such a way that you will be absolutely sure that you are never invited again?

If possible, I’ll order the recording just to see.

Don’t bother, Bob, if you’ll check the rest of the schedule, you’ll see your hopes are unlikely.

You see, the next three day’s following the Pastor’s Institute, MacA will be teaching a seminar on the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the lost son at the Cove. Entitled “The Great Joy of Jesus” this seminar will give you “a fascinating look into the heart of the Good Shepherd” as the promo says.

Given that fact, how prophetic do you think MacA will be on the first day of his visit?

I wouldn’t be holding my breath for it, but then I am just a cynical and jaded narrow-minded bigot fundamentalist.
