John MacArthur Set to Step Down as The Master's University President
For 33 years, since 1985, I have had the rare and enriching privilege of serving The Master‚Äôs University and Seminary as president.
However, with the growth of the University and Seminary, demanding more leadership now and in the future, the time has come for me to transition to the position of Chancellor of the University and President of the Seminary.
The transition will provide for a new president for the university. This will occur over the next 18 months.
I rejoice in the 91-year impact of this institution, because of its faithfulness to the Bible, to the glorious Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and His beloved church....
Dr. John MacArthur wrote: .... The history of the school therefore often reads like a sad chronicle of controversy and doctrinal decline. Is intellectual and academic respectability a worthy goal? Not if the world sets the standards that determine what is acceptable and what is not. ‚ÄúLet no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become foolish that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God‚ÄĚ (1 Cor.3:18-19,...).
It is folly to seek the approval of human wisdom; the goal itself is incompatible with biblical integrrity.
