Statement Re: John MacArthur’s IFCA International Membership
In John MacArthur’s recently published book Biblical Doctrine, his position regarding the nature and extent of the Atonement is clearly presented in the section entitled “The Extent of the Atonement” (pages 543-565). This section confirms that he changed from the position he held at the time of his admission into IFCA membership in 1980.
|Dr. Les Lofquist, Executive Director IFCA|
I respectfully requested that Dr. MacArthur withdraw as an individual member of IFCA International, which today he has done.
“I’m happy to withdraw from the IFCA with nothing but gratitude for the fellowship I have enjoyed through the decades. I am grateful for the exemplary faithfulness of the men who stand for the truth without compromise and have been willing to include me. My confidence in those strong men who love the truth, written and incarnate, will continue to make them my friends.”
Dr. John MacArthur
