Pastor James MacDonald of Harvest Bible Chapel in the Chicago, IL area recently uploaded a sermon to YouTube entitled “Beware of DOGS.” Pastor James MacDonald’s self-righteousness and greed, has caused him to become so spiritually blind, he doesn’t even realize that his own sermon is describing himself. Pastor James, as the profit Nathan would say in 2 Samuel 12:7 and 9; “YOU ARE THAT MAN!…Why did you despise the word of the LORD by doing what is evil in his eyes?”
The Chicago based mega-church’s pastor is so prideful he doesn’t even see his own sin. The sermon on YouTube was posted on September 7, 2018. A week after James MacDonald and Harvest Bible Chapel filed their 1st unbiblical lawsuit, which was over money, and James and the elders hid from their members. That sermon was published just a mere few weeks before they filed their 2nd unbiblical lawsuit against former members which is also about money. God’s word (the gospel) clearly states that believers should not sue other believers. In fact, about a year and a half ago, Pastor James MacDonald gave a sermon where he discussed not suing others unless it was breaking a contract. He gave an example where a contractor of his made a mistake in building Pastor James’ new home. James MacDonald discussed how it was ok to sue over a breach of contract. Neither the lawsuit Harvest filed against the Evangelical Christian Credit Union, nor the lawsuit Pastor James MacDonald filed against the former Harvest members are about a breach of contract. They are about money.
To make matters worse, Pastor James MacDonald took his distortion of the Bible to a whole new level when he posted an article in Christianity Today where James said it is ok to sue people for libel. No where in the Bible does it say it is ok to sue for libel. James is distorting the Bible to get what he wants. He has twisted God’s word to get what he wants. This sermon spells it out perfectly; “Beware of Dogs… Men whose teachings distort the Bible.” James MacDonald’s is a dog according to his own sermon. He has lost it. He needs to resign. As do every single one of the elders at Harvest that allowed these false teachings of God’s word and the lawsuits.
