Product Description

Pure Christianity needs no embellishment whatsoever. We find complete sufficiency in Christ and His provision for our needs.

But too many Christians have bought in to the notion that all the spiritual resources we gain at the moment of salvation are not adequate to meet the real needs in today's complex world. So they look for something more---an emotionally exciting and self-edifying experience not found in God's Word. This failure to understand the sufficiency of Christ has opened the door to all kinds of worldly influences, causing many modern believers to mix biblical truths with seemingly helpful man-made methods such as mysticism and psychology. As a result, they wallow in a watered-down, pseudo-Christianity that has been drained of its vitality, effectiveness, and security.

Within these pages, John MacArthur exposes the main ways Christians have displaced their spiritual resources and explains how to avoid making the same error. This book will make you newly aware of how completely God provides---and give you a renewed understanding of what it means to be "complete in Christ."

    MacArthur helps us to understand how corrupt and bankrupt psychology is and how everything we need, we can find in Christ. A fantastic book, I try to read it once a year.

    Not that we are competent of ourselves to claim anything as coming from us; our competence is from God, (2 Corinthians 3:5 RSV)John MacArthur argues that many local churches and Gods followers do not trust in the sufficiency in Christ. The minister believes in theauthority of Gods word; They believe in salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ and as a guide for righteous living. They lose patience in the word and start thinking something else is needed to bring others to Christ. Neither do they trust Gods word in their daily lives: seeking other sources to help themselves and others when misfortune and difficulties come in their lives. Something other then God and His written word is sought. Christian ministers have sought the use of secular psychology to help their flock deal with the daily grind. Accepting the notion scripture does not contain all we need in these complex and sophisticated modern times. pg. 117 It does not end here, but many local bodies seek resources though secular business, the government, politics and entertainment.

    MacArthur has never suffered from shyness when it comes to expressing an opinion and this book is no exception!MacArthur does a powerful job of demonstrating how the modern evangelical movement is looking for lasting solutions in all the wrong places. He neatly dismantles the golden calfs of mysticism and pragmatism and calls Christians to look to God to meet their deepest needs.Although there is occasionally quite a bite in his pen (calling some church service styles "buresque" for instance), that is a comment on style of the book more than substance. The work is solid and the central thesis is depressingly accurate.
