John MacArthur has created a new controversy.
https://www.gracechurch.org/news/posts/3982

Many Christians who were huge MacArthur fans now are saying that
they will no longer follow him.

I find this interesting, isn’t what he said in keeping with Nouthetic counseling and the teaching Dr. Jay Adams taught?

Read the entire article, albeit quickly and found MacArthur's counseling parameters consistent with Adam's "Nouthetic Counseling" methodology. More importantly, it sure seemed to be consistent with biblical teaching concerning sin and the fallen nature of man and it's remedy.

Regardless of what other issues some might have with MacArthur; after reading the full article.
I do not have a problem with it.

This is however something that is making Reformed Christians condemn him.
If there is one thing I do appreciate about John MacArthur is his not caring what
others think, when he believes something is biblical.

scratch1 "Reformed Christians" condemn MacArthur because he is relying upon the inspired Word of God to deal with the problems that people have in this life? MacArthur recognizes, as did Adams, that there are legitimate physiological causes for wrong behavior. Adams related a pericope from his experience dealing with a young man who did little else but sit on his mother's couch and watch TV. When asked what his problem was, he told Adams that his "therapist" told him that he had mental illness. Adams continued to ask him what "mental illness" his therapist told him he was afflicted with. Continuing the conversation it was revealed this young had no physical problems and he himself was the problem; he was sinning for not working and earning an income to support himself and contribute to his mother for the upkeep she provided him. Adam's concluded with telling the young man that he had no "mental illness" at all, but if he was to "part his hair with a crowbar", he would indeed have "mental illness". Adams and I am confident that MacArthur would strongly recommend that any person he counseled for "problematic behavior", to get a physical examination to determine if there was some physiological issue and then determine how to proceed to help the individual's problem. Today's clowns who are psychiatrists who prescribe all manner of drugs to correct behavioral and/or emotional disorders, so called don't have a clue about dealing with the fallen nature of man. igiveup
