John Macarthur's Demystifies the Blood of Jesus
For more than 30 years John Macarthur has been consistent in teaching that there is no saving power in the blood of Jesus Christ. In 1976, John Macarthur said in an article he wrote entitled, "Not His Bleeding But His Dying": [i]
"It was His death that was efficacious... not His blood ...Christ did not bleed to death. The shedding of blood has nothing to do with bleeding...it simply means death...violent sacrificial death... Nothing in His human blood saves ..." (John Macarthur and the Blood of Christ). (The 3 dots between phrases are how Macarthur was quoted and it doesn't represent something I left out.)
In a letter dated August 29, 1986 Macarthur said, "The blood of Christ is precious-but as precious as it is, His physical blood could not save." (John Macarthur and the Blood of Christ).
MacArthur Minimizes the Blood
The April 1986 edition of Faith For The Family quotes him as saying in a 1976 article entitled, "Not His Bleeding But His Dying:" "It was His death that was efficacious. . not His blood . . . Christ did not bleed to death. The shedding of blood had nothing to do with bleeding . . . it simply means death. ..Nothing in His human blood saves . . . It is not His blood that I love... it is Him. It is not His bleeding that saved me, but His dying." It is incredible to me, that a Christian minister would make such statements.
