John MacArthur’s first message at the Shepherds’ Conference set off shock waves throughout the reformed evangelical church by upholding Premillennialism as being the only consistent position for any person who holds to the doctrine of sovereign electing grace. He even went so far as to say that the Amillennial position is more consistent with Arminianism than it is with Calvinism. Before you criticize him, or allow some blogs to sway your opinion, listen to his message before leveling or expressing judgment. There are a great deal of important issues raised for the Amill camp to consider, and they are very relevant in spite of what many bloggers are saying.
In the spirit of MacArthur’s intent, to cause the church to re-examine it’s eschatology, I will be posting links to audio messages that may be of help to the Berean believer who desires to exam these things to see if they are so.
First, listen to MacArthur’s message for yourself. MacArthur also answers questions at the very beginning of the Q&A (General Session #5). So purchase General Sessions #1 and #5.
