A COVER-UP OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS
Centuries ago, English translators perpetrated a fraud in the New Testament, and its been purposely hidden and covered up ever since. Your own Bible is probably included in the cover-up!
In this book, John MacArthur unveils the essential and clarifying revelation that may be keeping you from a fulfillingand correctrelationship with God. Its powerful. Its controversial. And with new eyes youll see the riches of your salvation in a radically new way.
What does it mean to be a Christian the way Jesus defined it? MacArthur says it all boils down to one word:
We have been bought with a price. We belong to Christ. We are His own possession.
"Dr. John MacArthur is never afraid to tell the truth and in this book he does just that. The Christian's great privilege is to be the slave of Christ. Dr. MacArthur makes it clear that this is one of the Bible's most succinct ways of describing our discipleship. This is a powerful exposition of Scripture, a convincing corrective to shallow Christianity, a masterful work of pastoral encouragement...a devotional classic." â·Dr. R. Albert Mohler, President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"John MacArthur expertly and lucidly explains that Jesus frees us from bondage into a royal slavery that we might be His possession. Those who would be His children must, paradoxically, be willing to be His slaves." â·Dr. R.C. Sproul
"Dr. John MacArthur's teaching on 'slavery' resonates in the deepest recesses of my 'inner-man.' As an African-American pastor, I have been there. That is why the thought of someone writing about slavery as being a 'God-send' was the most ludicrous, unconscionable thing that I could have ever imagined...until I read this book. Now I see that becoming a slave is a biblical command, completely redefining the idea of freedom in Christ. I don't want to simply be a 'follower' or even just a 'servant'...but a 'slave'." â·The Rev. Dr. Dallas H. Wilson, Jr., Vicar, St. John's Episcopal Chapel, Charleston, SC

From its preface to its closing chapter, John MacArthur builds a compelling case in suggesting that translators of English versions of the Bible for centuries have mistakenly mistranslated the Greek word "doulos" and, thereby watered down it meaning. Substituting "servant" for "slave" is to miss the great truth that followers of Jesus Christ are truly those who have surrendered all rights and claims of their own to the Lordship of the Savior. The author makes a number of valid points in support of his argument, including that servants serve by choice but slaves have no choice, thus emphasizing the place of divine sovereignty. He points out that no one ever possesses "absolute freedom" because no one is ever free to do everything they want to do. We are at all times "slaves" to something...namely to sin (before Christ) or to the Lord (following conversion). He also discusses the biblical paradox that freedom is found by becoming a slave to Christ. As the reader progresses through the book, he finds MacArthur unfolding how the Master-slave relationship with Christ actually beautifully coincides with our friendship and sonship in Him. This is a powerfully encouraging book that is extremely well researched and annotated. What it lacks is a bibliography and index, but these are minor drawbacks from a work that goes a long way toward explaining the relationship of the redeemed sinner who has been bought out of the slave market of sin and become a slave of Christ. The Apostle Paul used this imagery on numerous occasions, and MacArthur has done a commendable job in shedding light on those passages.

To see our identity as slave to Master/Lord Jesus, and grasp the weightiness of the analogy is paradoxically true freedom.
