Thread: Pastor Arnold Murray & Shepherd's Chapel

    Re: Pastor Arnold Murray & Shepherd's Chapel

    Who is Arnold Murray?
    by Matt Slick

    Arnold Murray is the "pastor" of a church called the Shepherd's Chapel which is based in Gravette, Ark, with over 200 television stations carrying his ministry. Mr. Murray presents himself as a Christian scholar, calls himself "Dr.", and says he is an ex-marine who served in the Korean War where he was wounded. Unfortunately, proof of his doctorate degree is not available. He also refuses to provide any documentation regarding his scholastic achievements. In fact, getting any information on Mr. Murray is very difficult. He is rather private about his personal history and has refused to provide much biographical information about himself. Also, it isn't necessary to have a doctorate to be a good teacher of the word of God. But since he refers to himself as "Dr.", it would be nice to verify his credentials. No such verification has manifested from him.

    Mr. Murray stated that when he was young he attended many different churches and that he has incorporated some of the teachings of these different churches into his current theology. Again, these different churches are not mentioned anyone on his website. Were any of them non Christian cults? What is their denominational affiliation? We want to know because we want to find out what his theological background is since it might explain where he got some of his aberrant theological ideas.

    Mr. Murray, or Pastor Murray, as his followers call him, teaches a brand of theology that has many problems. Mr. Murray denies the doctrine of the Trinity, denies the existence of hell and the rapture, and states that Eve had sexual relations with the devil and that this union produced Cain.

    When watching his television show it becomes quickly evident that he is a bit condescending to those whom he claims are misled, something that seems to have rubbed off on his followers. He justifies this approach by stating that he was in the Marines and learned how to "teach his troops" with discipline. It seems his approach is lacking the humility and grace of the Holy Spirit which is demonstrated in this brief audio clip where Murray threatens someone with a 9mm handgun. In addition, it seems that he has made a false prophecy as is documented by the Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance, a secular religious analysis organization.

    Mr. Arnold Murray also frequently refers to the Christian identity movement which teaches that the British and, therefore, the Americans and Canadians, are the true descendants of the ancient Israelites the 10 lost tribes. Jews in Israel are really descended from Cain who was the result of sexual intercourse between Eve and Satan. Murray also teaches that all people had a pre-existence in spirit-bodies before they were born here on earth.

    Mr. Murray supports his off-base theological positions by interpreting verses in light of his pre-conceived ideas, sometimes stripping biblical verses of their context. He also selectively appeals to the Strong's concordance, cites what Greek and Hebrew words mean, and weaves his theological positions into the text. In reality, all he has done is justify his ideas through his unsound interpretive techniques.

    I recommend that you stay far away from this man and the Shepherd's Chapel.

    Any pastor who pulls a glock out of his briefcase to protect the flock is worthy of some respect.

    I've attached a recording of this situation to this post.

    In it you can clearly hear Pastor Murray teaching while an audience member screams out "blasphemy!" His two sons, Dennis and David then grab the offender while he blurts out "keep your hands off me!" Murray proceeds to open his briefcase and pulls out a 9mm stating "here - put this 9mm to that boy!"

    Shepherd's Chapel Presents "The MELUNGEONS"

    “The righteous mother of the seven children spake also as follows to her offspring: I was a pure virgin, and went not beyond my father’s house; but I took care of the built-up rib. No destroyer of the desert, or ravisher of the plain, injured me; nor did the destructive, deceitful, snake, make spoil of my chaste virginity; and I remained with my husband during the period of my prime.” (4 Maccabees 18:7-8)

    Re: Pastor Arnold Murray & Shepherd's Chapel

    Special Announcement: We regret to inform the congregation that Pastor Arnold Murray passed away on Wednesday, February 12th. We have no doubt the Lord greeted Pastor Murray with a hardy, "Well done My good and faithful servant."

    Plans for a Memorial Service for Pastor Murray are in progress. Please watch your monthly newsletter for an announcement concerning the Memorial Service, as that will be the means by which we will announce plans as they are finalized.

    Thanks for all your prayers for the family and staff of the Shepherd's Chapel and may God Bless you.

    Re: Pastor Arnold Murray & Shepherd's Chapel

    Your correct, near the end of his teachings..he became more universal in nature. I don't watch his son Dennis on tv, Arnold Murray has a lot of videos on youtube that I watch.

    Re: SHEPARD'S CHAPEL...WHAT HAPPENED?

    Back in the 80s and 90s Pastor Murray would refer to the "kenite" as jews.

    If you look around you might still find some of these older recordings. Why is chose to whitewash his message may never be known but today his program is able to bring new people into CI.

    Shepherd's Chapel may be somewhat milk toast but still teaches the seduction of Eve which eventually leads people here. My opinion is they're fellow workers.

    I get Shepherd's Chapel from midnight to 6 am. It's great to sleep to with the volume lowered. You'd be surprised what you pick up from that broadcast.
