Why can't these people appreciate what God gives & stop all the criticizing?
And that goes for anyone who has judgmental remarks; pastors, preachers, bible studiers, etc.
Remember that anyone who talks against His own, is not with God....and God knows who you are. I don't see anything wrong with Arnold Murray's teaching, word for word bible study, in fact he is a very smart teacher and I don't care what degree he ever held. I worked with many who have Doctorate degrees and they are not as competent in the bible.

 So what do you think of the way Arnold Murray is always criticizing other  people?  Generally, I find that his students are perfectly willing to  justify Arnold Murray's very negative commentaries against other Christians.  I think that  is hypocrisy, what is your opinion?

You may not see anything wrong with Arnold Murray's teaching, and I'm not  going to speculate about that because I do not know you.  But I do see many  things wrong with it and since I was once a student of the Chapel I feel obligated to speak up.  Moreover the bible calls us to "mark"  false teachers.
I do not think it is a sin for him to go around saying that everyone who  teaches the rapture is deceived, and neither is it a sin for me to say that  anyone who believes in the serpent seed is deceived.
Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, MARK THEM which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
You don't have a problem with his teachings  As far as I am concerned, that is YOUR problem.  I do not expect you to bow to my judgments, so do not expect me to bow to yours.  But I have the right to speak up and anyone who reads my page has the right to decide for themselves.
Your letter is the most common kind of letter I receive.  The guy puts  himself out in the public eye and he sticks his face on TV all over the nation and he does not want to be criticized so he teaches people that it is wrong to be critical of "other ministries"  even though that is his BREAD and BUTTER.  He loves to be critical of other Christians, he mocks them and calls them names,  I don't approve of the name-calling but I do not see anything wrong with defending what you believe to be the truth by attacking error.

Arnold Murray does not listen to rebuke, so he is subject to public censure.  No one has to listen to me, and plenty do not.  I do not regard Arnold  Murray as a Christian brother, our versions of Christian teaching and faith are so different so as to make the differences irreconcilable.
