I would not call him "anti-Holy Spirit". He just has a different perspective than some. Even if someone doesn't agree with his views it is still valuable to understand what he is saying. If I only chose to only have Logos resources that aligned with my beliefs my library would be a lot smaller.

Thanks Paul. I missed that. I checked Logos but forgot to check Vyrso. Actually I wish that there was a way to search both Logos and Vyrso at the same time but that is another topic.

In a nutshell, what does your comment reference? Is there a particular book of his that you have in mind?

Oh, sorry...posted before checking the link...I assume you are referring to the Strange Fire book. Anything else in mind?

Ah, one of the few of his I don't seem to have, though I've heard of it.

So, Superman...he's super. Superman becomes weak and defenseless in the presence of krypton. Have I now denied Superman, because I identified a characteristic that is not-so-super? Have I insulted him? Haven't I just spoken truth? Is he now non-existent? Isn't he still capable of super deeds, once the krypton goes away? Can't he still save the day?

Perhaps abuses of charismatic gifts is kryptonite for MacArthur Hmm

I don't agree with all he says, but he has been gifted by God.

In Him,

The reason why I am so strong against this author is because he criticizes the whole denomination based on some flaws which happens in some churches And among well known preachers  

imagine if the Corinthian church would be in the 21st century, where the gifts of Holy Sprit were manifested and at the same time lots of flaws: some members are sleeping with parents, adultery, and other works of the flesh. MacArthur would defenetly say that it's a strange fire and the work of Holy Spirit cannot be present there. It would be included in his book. That's why I call him "anti-Holy Spirit", looking at the flaws he can easily replace the work of Holy Spirit a with strange fire. 

PS: I do not want theological debate, I just wanted to express my opinion about the author. Sorry if I crossed the line

Thanks for explaining your position. I think that it is fine to express our opinions but characterizing him as being "anti-Holy Spirit" was certainly an invitation to others to respond. Have you actually read this book?

No, and most likely I wont, but I watched his videos to learn his stand point, where he criticises the whole denomination.

I'm with you on this one Wild Eagle, and I did watch this video. I'm doing my best to restrain myself from responding, because these forums are not the place to debate this, or any theological point--not even views I strongly disagree with, nor arguments that seem easy to address.

Not to be pedantic, but which 'denomination' is he criticizing? The term charismatic is a catch-all (perhaps unfairly) used to denote a certain set of beliefs and practices. 

I know quite a few Pentecostals who would not describe themselves as charismatic, for example

I just watched the example you gave. Maybe I missed it. What "whole denomination" does he criticize? I hear him mention several denominations (Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, Episcopalian) and movements (Third Wave, Charismatic movement), but I must be missing "the whole denomination" to which you refer.

Just to prove I haven't "drunk the Kool-Aid" and accept everything he says, I disagree with Johnny Mac's use of 1 Cor 13 to indicate cessation of tongues because I disagree with his understanding of "that which is perfect".

EDIT: Geo and I seem to have cross posted.

I should use "Charismatic Movement" instead of denomination. It slipped my mind that it involves different denominations and is not considered as one denomination. Thanks for the correction 

EDIT: According to dictionary:

"Christianity any of various groups, within existing denominations, that emphasize communal prayer and the charismatic gifts of speaking in tongues,
healing, etc"
