Today worldwide there is this fanatical eschatological focus on the Nation of Israel mainly from the heretical Dispensational Premillennialists, with John Hagee being at the top of their heretical mountain. However, all premillennialists are to be faulted in their misunderstanding of the role and purpose of National Israel in the Old Covenant and how their purpose was fulfilled and finally put to an end when Christ arrived on the scene, died, buried, rose again, and gave the promise of the Holy Spirit as a sign and seal of this fulfillment.
The purpose of this article is not to discuss the different eschatological views that are with us today, but rather to show the effects of an ultimate hardening of a people by God. ...

Reality CheckFrom the current dialogue and responses from some who participate on this website, there seems to be quite an objection to the Eternal Justification view, with all its natural soteriological implications.
These objections however stem from how one determines reality. There are two basic foundational views. Of course there are off shoots and extremes to each of these two views, however to keep it simple for now, I will only discuss the two basics.
Objectivism vs. Subjectivism
The Objective View -A Short Definition
Objectivism, or metaphysical objectivism, is the view that there is a reality or realm of objects and facts existing wholly independent of the mind. Stronger versions of this claim might hold that there is only one correct description of this reality; they may or may not hold that we have any knowledge of it. If it is true (and I believe it is) that reality is independent of the mind, the reality of objectivism is thus inclusive of objects which one may not know about and are not the intended objects of mental acts. ...
Predestinarian Network Audio ConferencesBetween June 2008, and January 2009, we here at Predestinarian Network had many internet conferences where Nicholas and Bob brought a lot of teaching in the form of audio. We're including them once again for your enjoyment and study purposes. We hope that they are of use to you.
We'll try to get better descriptions to all of these soon. Feel free to add your comments or descriptions.

The Rock of The Scriptures : Jesus Christ or Peter?All to often in Christian circles, the issue of Authority is raised as to WHO is the head of the Body of Christ. Is it Peter the Apostle along with the line of successive popes, as Rome contends from Augustines writings ? Or is it Jesus Christ, the God-Man and Savior, as the scriptures and Apostles of Christ attest to all true Christians who are able to believe ?
To answer this, we must appeal to the final authority, which is the Word of God , the Holy Scriptures. 2 Ti.3:16-17 states....."All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."
Jesus Christ our Lord stated in the Gospel of John 5:39.."Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." And after our Lords resurrection, on the road to Emmaus, speaking to Cleopas, Lukes Gospel states in 24:27, "And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself." ...
The Augustinian Captivity of the Reformed ChurchIt is always interesting when I converse with reformed protestants that live in my community. Although they would say they disagree with most teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, they hold up and lend credence to Augustine of Hippo as if he was some great Protestant reformer. How naive they have become! Have they even considered what Augustine believed to be true? Have they ever done any research? When I state to them that Augustine never believed or taught the Pauline doctrine of Justification by Grace Alone, through Faith Alone, in the Imputed merits of Christ Alone, they recoil and tell me, My reverend pastor never said what you are saying They also tell me that R.C. Sproul, J.I. Packer, and many other reformed scholars speak very highly of Augustine
These types of statements from the Laos are proof that they have been misled and deceived from those (Clergy) they have been conditioned (from baby sprinkling or Baptism and indoctrination in their church) to trust and follow. This new wave of Protestant cult obedience to their Clergy makes Roman prelates proud of them, for they are no different than their whore mother church. ...
"And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more of grace: otherwise work is no more work". - Romans 11.6Brothers and sisters in Christ,.........It is with sincere desire to present this body of work to the audience of this forum. Again I will attempt to show how the Grace of justification is antithetical to ALL works. There can never be a synthesis of these two ideas. Any addition to Grace or a synthesis of Law and Gospel (Grace), would render Pauls doctrine of Justification null and void. Many religious churchman however, have taught the synthesis, making faith and works one cohesive unit, along with rendering good works,( the fruit of faith), as a ground, basis, and proof of justification. If good works can be seen (by men) as a bonafide proof of Justification, then we must ask two basic questions. 1. What is the numerical quantity of good works that would prove an individual to be Justified? 2. What degree of substantive quality must these good works possess? ...
