1925 - By letter, Wyatt Earp beseeches his friend William S. Hart to portray him in a movie, to correct the "lies about me." Hart never did. [story]
Hart-Wyatt Earp


Dr. John MacArthur, who will step aside as president of The Master’s University in Newhall by May 2020, released a statement to students and faculty Monday.

Following a decision Friday by the university’s board of directors, MacArthur will “transition” to Chancellor of the University and President of the Seminary.

MacArthur’s statement follows:

“For 33 years, since 1985, I have had the rare and enriching privilege of serving The Master’s University and Seminary as president.

“I originally signed up for 5 years, thinking I would be able — along with my pastoral ministry at Grace Community Church — to help strengthen the University and Seminary. I underestimated the hold that educating young Christians for gospel influence on the world would have on me.

“Class after class, year after year, as new students arrived, I found it impossible to let go of the opportunity to educate their minds and hearts to take the Light of God’s truth into this dark world. So, I have stayed and loved every day of my service.

“However, with the growth of the University and Seminary, demanding more leadership now and in the future, the time has come for me to transition to the position of Chancellor of the University and President of the Seminary.

“The transition will provide for a new president for the university. This will occur over the next 18 months.

“I rejoice in the 91-year impact of this institution, because of its faithfulness to the Bible, to the glorious Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and His beloved church.

“I am confident of the continuing influence of these schools for the kingdom of our Lord and I look forward to continuing to serve The Master’s University and Seminary in the years ahead.”

John MacArthur

    The number 33 is often emphasized as a code when a person wants to communicate to the “adept” that a particular operation is or has been a Masonic enterprise. Of interest, it’s kept well hidden that John Fullerton Macarthur is named for his great grandfather, Thomas Fullerton, the Grand Master of the Grand Masonic Lodge of Canada.
