Sola Sisters: John MacArthur Affirming Dallas Willard & Spiritual Disciplines? All Right, Let's Just Take a Breath....

Thank you Sola Sisters! This is a terrific article. I really respect this discernment blog for their sensible analysis. Too many "discernment" blogs are quick to jump the gun and publically accuse brothers and sisters without proper research. Many parrot other "discernment" blog posts.

Case and point:

"A recent article by Lighthouse Trails blog (John MacArthur Broadcast Favorably Quotes Dallas Willard – Why This is a Bad Move) noted that a sermon by John MacArthur of Grace To You had rather favorably quoted Dallas Willard. For those who don't know who that is, before his recent death Willard became one of the founders of the Spiritual Formation/Spiritual Disciplines/Contemplative Prayer movement which is widely taught today in churches and seminaries, but which includes teachings from Roman Catholic monastic mystics" 

Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.” John 7:24

"So let's go over the facts, and see if we can make sense of Dr. MacArthur quoting from Dallas Willard." Full article here.
