John MacArthur publicly shamed and excommunicated a mother for refusing to reconcile with her abusive husband
John MacArthur’s sins are in the news again. And he has not repented. This time he has been exposed for how he and Grace Community Church abused a woman for refusing to reconcile with her abusive husband.
Note: this post has updated by adding extra links in the Further Reading and Viewing section at the bottom of the post.
MacArthur and Grace Community Church ran the entire playbook of the script for how churches can abuse women and children who are victims of domestic abuse.
Trigger warning for the following two articles. I was triggered reading the first article. I had to read it in small doses with breaks in between. My heart goes out to Eileen Gray who was horrendously abused by John MacArthur and his ‘c’hurch.

I don’t have the energy to write more in this post. I just ask my readers to read the two linked articles by Julie Roys from The Roys Report.
To remind people about the history of John MacArthur’s pattern of sins, I’ve given many links in the Further Reading section below.
It is good when lying leaders are exposed as wolves. But it is heavy to see so many church-attending people resist the truth even when the truth is exposed beyond a shadow of a doubt. How much heavier must it have been for our God who has known that all those leaders’ sins were being concealed for so long!
Come quickly Lord Jesus! Please help all true believers to endure to the end.
