Macarthur Says The Bible Uses The Word Slave To Describe Christians

12.09.10 | Sarah Harnisch

   Pastor John Macarthur is out with a new book. In this one, he says a single mistranslated word in the New Testament has changed the meaning of our entire relationship to Christ. Macarthur says the word "slave" was in the original Greek translation 124 times, but it's been replaced with the softer word "servant." He says the gospel isn't simply an invitation to be Christ's friend, but a mandate to be his devoted slave. The book, called "Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ" is out now.
