Charismatic worship leads to charismatic theology?
I’m really looking forward to listening to some of the audio from John MacArthur’s Strange Fire Conference and reading the upcoming book.
I’ve just been told that MacArthur has made a point several times to specifically critique charismatic worship and to condemn charismatic music. Looking forward to reading those comments, although I do wonder about consistency within MacArthur’s own ministry on that point.
In the meantime, however, I thought I’d link to my recent article on the subject of the influence of charismatic theology on worship and music:
