Dr. John MacArthur and Think Tanks

Some Christians believe that Bible teacher Dr. John MacArthur is one of the only teachers that is left to trust. Some question his belief in Calvinism, his stand on the pre-tribulation rapture theory, and his undying support of the government of Israel. Others question the esoteric use of the sunrise in his ministry logo - but have nothing else to call him out on. Well, this bit of information will take care of that.

The Master's College joined with the think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) from Washington, D.C. to co-host its first joint forum in Nov. 2010. The event featured a discussion with Dr. Arthur Brooks, president of AEI, and Dr. John MacArthur, president of The Master's College. This event is part of a new initiative focusing on Biblical values and economics. (The video) It should be pointed out that both Dr. MacArthur and Dr. Brooks noted that the Bible does not support collectivism. The Bible clearly states that individual enterprise in the spirit of proper stewardship should be the basis of an economic system.

The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research is a private, non-profit think tank dedicated to research and education on issues of governance, international relations, the environment, defense policy, economics, and social welfare.[1] It was founded in 1938, and is often cited as a right-leaning counterpart to the left-leaning Brookings Institution. AEI is the most prominent think tank associated with American neoconservatism, in both the domestic and international policy arenas. [2]

AEI was founded by a group of New York businessmen led by Lewis H. Brown. Its founders included executives from Eli Lilly, General Mills, Bristol-Myers, Chemical Bank, Chrysler, and Paine Webber, many of which were Nazi sympathizers. During WWII, the Rockefeller family had an alliance with the German chemical company IG Farben (Bayer). Auschwitz, the largest extermination camp in human history, was a 100% subsidiary of IG Farben.[3] Essentially, they benefited from both sides of the war front.

 Lewis H. Brown made it to the cover of Time on April 3, 1939.

According to SourceWatch, after World War II, I.G. Farben was dismantled but later emerged as separate corporations within the Rockefeller "Drug Trust" alliance. The companies from the list of AEI founders are General Mills and Bristol-Myers. [4][5]

It seems unlikely that General Mills could merge with the assets of a pharmaceutical company like I.G. Farben, but the food industry uses food chemistry all the time. As you will see in this 1943 ad, pharmaceutical companies also deal in vitamins.

Among the prominent former government officials now affiliated with AEI are former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton, now an AEI senior fellow; former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities Lynne Cheney, a longtime AEI senior fellow; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, now an AEI senior fellow; former Dutch member of parliament Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an AEI visiting fellow; and former deputy secretary of defense Paul Wolfowitz, now an AEI visiting scholar.[6][7]

The point most Americans are missing is that the Democracy being advocated, is the foundation of world government. This move toward world democracy is Communitarianism - a combination of communism and capitalism - The Third Way.

Dr. John MacArthur is an intelligent man, and I suspect he knows exactly what he is doing. He graduated at the top of his class when he received his Masters of Divinity from Biola University's Talbot Theological Seminary, which has a Reconstructionist background. If he doesn't realize he was brainwashed, he comes by it honestly.
