Exclusive Interview With Phil Johnson (Part 2) - The Five Heresies Of History

During my visit to the USA earlier this year I had the great priveledge of interviewing Phil Johnson. For those of you who don't know, Phil is a thundering preacher with a sharp satirical wit who serves alongside John Macarthur at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. This satirical wit gets ably demonstrated on his immensly popular blog - Pyromaniacs - which is a rich blend of satire and reformed theology. Phil is also one of the world's foremost authorities on the great 19th century preacher Charles Spurgeon and runs the online Spurgeon Archive which contains almost anything and everything regarding the "prince of preachers". Phil Johnson is an outstanding and well researched Christian apologist and I was thrilled at the opportunity to ask him some questions.

In the second part of this interview I asked Phil Johnson about the major heresies that have been fought throughout church history. Phil points out that there have really been only five major heresies and they tend to get recycled through the centuries. Watch this video to find out what these five heresies are and see how they manifest themselves alive and well in the 21st century.

Thanks Phil for a great reminder that so many of the "new innovations" we see today are really repackaged old heresies. Spurgeon said "what's true isn't new and what's new isn't true".
