John Macarthur's Ministry Partners with a Member of the World Council of Churches

John Macarthur's international ministry is called The Masters Academy International (TMAI). The TMAI Mexico center is called Word of Grace Biblical Seminary. If one goes to the TMAI Mexico webpage [this webpage no longer exists click here for new TMAI webpage] then one will see that a pastors’ conference in El Salvador is highlighted. On Sept. 6-7, 2007, Word of Grace Biblical Seminary led a conference in El Salvador called Basics of Leadership (This conference has also been called “Basics of Biblical Leadership” and “Leadership Basics”). According to the TMAI website, “This conference was organized by the Baptist Association of El Salvador and the Word of Grace Biblical Seminary…” This means that TMAI Mexico was working in partnership or in cooperation with the Baptist Association of El Salvador. Why is this noteworthy?

The Baptist Association of El Salvador is not only a member of the Baptist World Alliance, a UN-NGO, but it is also a member of the World Council of Churches (WCC). The Baptist Association of El Salvador’s WCC membership can be seen here.

In 1993, Joseph A. Harriss wrote an article, “The Gospel According to Marx.” Within this article, Rachel Tingle, Director of London’s Christian Studies Centre, states regarding the WCC: “The council has jettisoned traditional Christian missionary activity and substituted political action designed to establish a new kind of world order.”

According to another article titled, Baptists and Liberation Theology, “In 1975, the Baptist Association of El Salvador founded a theological school in Santa Ana…which created…an openness to both sides of the war and to cooperation with Catholics for the public good.” Three decades ago, the Baptist Association of El Salvador was finding common ground with Catholics for the public good. True Christians are to separate from evil. They are not to cooperate with evil for the “public good.”
