John MacArthur on Desiring Spiritual Gifts

"The Corinthians were to stop seeking gifts because to do so is both persumptious and purposeless".

John MacArthur - "The MacArthur New Testament Commentary - 1 Corinthians" - Moody Bible Institute, Chicago (1984) - (p326).

1 Corinthians 14:1, "Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy."

Dr. MacArthur has a lot of knowledge. But I really wish he would stop quenching the Spirit, both in himself and in others, with some of his teachings. :(

The devil has an interesting way of diverting people from the supernatural: either by getting believers to snuff such things out completely, or to put WAY too much focus on it instead of the Gospel of God's sovereign grace.
