The Fast Change of Doctrine At Grace Community Church
***UPDATE at the bottom***
I'm so old that I remember when MacArthur taught & wrote against evolution and for Creation in 6 literal days by God's Word.
I'm so old that I remember when MacArthur spoke and wrote against looking to politics to change a culture.
I'm so old that I remember when MacArthur honored law enforcement at GCC & taught on the honor and respect needed toward our government as Scripture dictates.
I'm so old that I remember when MacArthur wrote that down through the ages in all of Scripture (Law, Prophets, the Gospels & Epistles) God condemns homosexuality.
I'm so old that I remember when MacArthur taught against the RCC.
I'm so old that I remember when MacArthur and GCC taught against the Charismatic Movement and had an entire conference and book against it.
Yet TGC promotes evolution, social justice, Marxism, Black Liberation theology, sodomy, Catholicism and more.

One of the scheduled TGC speakers is Jamin Groogin, co- author of "The Way of the Dragon or the Way of the Lamb". His book’s acknowledgements include two mystics Eugene Peterson (“The Message” book) and Dallas Willard (spiritual formation). Jean Vanier, who is a Roman Catholic philosopher and theologian. John Perkins is a social justice activist. These men cannot be labeled as being faitihful to the King's way of biblical Christianity since they incorporate things of the world as well as demons (mysticism is demonic).
GCC has since, removed the tweet from their Twitter account. Below is the update. John MacArthur is still speaking at TGC, which shows GCC is still approving of the ministry. TGC is an entire unit and body. It stands for something and against something. Perfect agreement is not the issue, but its foundation, founders, associations, content, over time reveals if the ministry or person is of Christ. Because of TGC's founder Tim Keller and because of it's doctrinal triage we're seeing the bad fruit. TGC is waxing worse because its root is wicked.
Previously it was announced that The Gospel Coalition and Grace Community Church were partnering together on a TGC 2018 West Coast Conference this October 16–18.
While both of our organizations give thanks for the good work the other is doing for the cause of Christ, we have reached the mutual decision that it is best to host the conference at another venue.
Over the past two weeks, because of some administrative misunderstandings and some differences in ministry emphasis and approach, it has become clear that the best way forward for all involved is to move the conference to another location in the Los Angeles area. The conversations leading to this conclusion have been gracious and friendly. We gladly recognize the fruitfulness and faithfulness in each other’s ministries.
Finally, it should be noted that the conference is still happening during the original dates, and we are pleased to report that John MacArthur will still be a featured speaker. More information about a new location will be released as soon as plans are finalized.
