John MacArthur on Vision Casting

John MacArthur shares his thoughts on the ridiculous - and unbiblical - notion of "vision casting." HT: Grace to You


  1. A vision-casting MacArthur? You had me worried there for a minute -- or 2:33.

  2. Refreshing to hear a voice of sanctified reason in sharp contrast to these wacko charlatans predominately inhibiting the stages of mega entertainment centers.

  3. I try and stay away from anything that looks ahead like that. It is foretelling or fortunetelling to me. Sounds like "vision casting" is just a euphemism for imagination which can lead people down an evil path. I think the word of God has a lot to say that is not good about man using his imagination -Ezekiel 13:2,17.

    2Cr 5:7 "We live by faith, not by sight"

    Pro 27:1 "Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth."

    Jam 4:13 "Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.15 Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that."16 As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil

    thanks to John MacArthur for his wisdom in exposing this in a day where people are being deceived

  4. In commenting on the pastoral style of our pastor at the time, one brother said: "He gets more done by 'accident' than most pastors get done by plan" I think the one thing that pastor impressed upon me was to have a "wait and see" attitude--"wait and see what God's going to do about it".

  5. Can anyone say 50 percent (or more) of Southern Baptist preachers?...following the psychobabble of Bill Hybels and Rick Warren. My former pastor, which is why he is my former pastor, is a vision catcher. The vision usually involves happier lives for all the recipients of the vision. At least that is what they unwittingly (unbiblically) think. All of them are still waiting for a vision about the Gospel.


Please keep it pithy (in other words, if your comment is long enough to be its own blog post, don't bother), pertinent (please don't go off-topic), and respectful (to the author, to the other readers, and to the subject of the post). If you can't do that, your comment will not be posted.
