Participated in the Code Orange Revival in 2012. This “revival” included a bevy of false teachers that no one with discernment should have joined with! This article also points out other problems with MacDonald, including his endorsing false teachers like Beth Moore!
Then there was the Elephant Room 2, where MacDonald defended T.D. Jakes’ Word of Faith and anti-Trinitarian teachings, and thought he was an excellent teacher! Many sites exposed this situation, the Cripplegate being one of them, which had an excellent report of other issues with MacDonald.
MacDonald helped heretic T.D. Jakes celebrate 35 years of heretical ministry. He did this along with many other false teachers and celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey. Does he really thing God approved of this promotion of heresy?
MacDonald demonstrated his immaturity and need to be relevant by getting a tattoo, as well as buddying up with another “pastor” like himself, Mark Driscoll. (The comment string in the linked article is also quite enlightening as to MacDonald’s ideology.)
Well, all these things are just tips of the many icebergs at Harvest Bible Chapel under the leadership of James MacDonald. Some solid reporting from someone who attended HBC for many years can be found at Mary Dalke’s blog. Her examinations are thorough, and should demonstrate conclusively why James MacDonald should not be trusted to teach the Word of God. (And you’ll get to read about many of the false teachers promoted by MacDonald in some way or another!)
