This will be brief.
The more just recently I have examined James MacDonald’s eschatology the more I believe he is confused on what prewrath teaches, because he has affirmed certain mid-trib and post-trib statements that contradict prewrath. This has caused confusion with many readers here and understandably why. Prewrath shares some tenets with all the other views, but his statements—which I hardly have the time to detail—are contradictory of prewrath. And this is not merely disagreeing on a few specifics; I have recently determined that it is systemic. I just do not believe he is as informed about prewrath as he should be. I don’t expect prewrath-affirming pastors to understand—nor even agree—with every jot and tittle on prewrath teaching. But they should at least grasp the basic interpretive framework of prewrath. This is, of course, not to say that he does not have beneficial teaching on some issues of Bible prophecy. He does. But I have concluded that his confused views on key issues are confusing readers here at Eschatos Ministries. I don’t mind linking to posttribbers and even pretribbers on issues that I agree with—I have done this quite a bit actually. But there are cases where it is simply not beneficial.
This is not the only factor in my decision. Certain ecclesiastical controversies that he is involved in is disconcerting to me. I am not going to get into that here, so please do not email me and ask me about it.
So that is that. I am moving on from any questions about MacDonald.
