*I misspelled "obviously" at the end.*
The following is an email received from a person who contacted Pagitt after seeing the telecast. The person warned Pagitt about Jeremiah 17:9 ("The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it?") The writer shared how this verse was instrumental to their own conversion. Here is Pagitt's reply:
"I must say that I see the gospel totally differently than what you conveyed in your e-mail. I was not converted by a verse but always loved and changed (even ongoing) by a fully-participating God who created me in his image. I would strongly encourage you to have a much more full and biblical understanding of the gospel, and not form a faith based on any interpretation of one verse.
I'm not sure you'd be interested in this, but I have just finished a book somewhat on this topic. ***I think it might give you a more full understanding of the gospel than the one perverted by the likes of John MacArthur. I do not say "perverted" lightly, either.*** I really think what he communicates is so distant from the message of the Bible that it is dangerously harmful to people. If you heard the interview and his comments about a God who is "above us," I certainly hope you would see this."

This clip is the video debate on CNN between Pagitt and the Bible really, but the two people are John MacArthur and Doug Pagitt. At the end of this clip is an interesting audio clip from Pagitt's podcast recorded after his visit to CNN. It is very revealing...
