why johnny mac loves the church

John MacArthur does his usually excellent job of expositing Scripture in his conclusion of Why I Love The Church. The bottom line - she is an earthly expression of heaven.

Unfortunately he then does his usual poor job of deviating from expositing Scripture to take a poke at 'user-friendly' churches. He rightly notes that it is a "wrong-headed" notion to attempt to make unbelievers comfortable in our fellowships. Unfortunately his charge is a focus on a Sunday-morning-like service which is a wrong-headed notion he holds. He then fails to demonstrate humility by pointing out that in his own fellowship there is also gap in the correlation to heaven on earth.

Too bad he holds so much bitterness towards others. It detracts from an otherwise excellent piece. But it's worth reading nonetheless.
