      That was well done. The pain in her voice was heartbreaking. I do agree with Winkin he should have used scripture as well.

        Very moving. I loved it. Dr. MacArthur did mention Romans 7 directly, and alluded to John 21 and other chapters and verses. Considering the nature of her questions, as well her obvious emotional state, I'm certain that someone from the congregation followed up with her before she left church to make sure any remaining questions she might have had were answered.

          My thoughts: If Dr. MacArthur blasted her with the machine gun style Scripture approach she probably would have been more bewildered. If she was Scripturally informed she wouldn't be asking these questions.
