Open Letter to Certain Critics
Open Letter to those who disagree and criticize John MacArthur for Publishing a MacArthur Study Bible using the New International Version translation (NIV)
This is my first ever open letter to anyone. Well, maybe it isn't a letter, it's more like a note.
Well, maybe it isn't it a note, it's more like a paragraph.
That's it, my first ever open paragraph!
For the record I do not like the NIV anymore than you do. However, who are you to criticize, condemn, or charge MacArthur with improper motives? So, I say to you:
When you pastor a single church for over 40 years, serve as an exemplary president of a bible college and seminary, teach the word of God expositionally for over 40 years, raise 4 children who love and serve the Lord, and maintain a pure and devoted marriage, without a hint of scandal, then you can do the following two things:
1) Criticize him
2) Publish your own Study Bible using the translation of your choice
