John MacArthur solves the parable of the wheat and the tares conundrum!
In the parable of the wheat and the tares (or the parable of the wheat and the weeds for those who have no idea what tares are and get them confused with tears) in Matthew 13:24-30, Jesus tells us about how the church will contain true Christians (the wheat) and false Christians (the tares or weeds).
However, since wheat and tares are very similar in appearance, the farmer tells his servants not to pull up the weeds before harvest as it would be all too easy to mistakenly pull up wheat instead.
This parable serves as a warning to Christians about judging who is saved before Jesus returns.
Which is rather frustrating, as Christians are desperate to do so.
So it was with great relief that John Macarthur, lead pastor of Grace Community Church in California, finally came up with a foolproof way of telling whether someone is a true believer or not.
On Friday he told President Trump “any real, true believer” of Christianity will be forced to vote for him.
Immediately, Christians took to Twitter to point out that Christians who vote Democrat, third party or don’t vote at all are not actually saved and should repent.
The pastor backs up his claim using Romans 10:9 from the MacArthur study bible:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Trump is President,’ and believe in your heart that God appointed him to Make America Great Again, you will be saved.”
Pastor MacArthur says that this is also the true meaning behind LeBron James’ shirt that said “vote or die!”
“LeBron is correct,” said MacArthur, “those who vote Trump in November 2020 will be on the narrow path heading towards eternal life, whereas those voting Democrat are well on their way to destruction.”
Readers, if you don’t currently vote Trump then we implore you now to get on your knees and repent of your wickedness before it’s too late.
