John Hagee: Jesus is Messiah, After All

I've been quite critical of John Hagee's hyper-dispensationalism, especially after reading through chapter ten of his book In Defense of Israel. Recently, however, it has come to my attention that he has written a clarification entitled A Special Message from Pastor John Hagee Regarding His Book In Defense of Israel. Apparently, he states that he does believe in Jesus as Messiah after all, even though he gave the impression that he denied it in some of the statements he made in his book.

I guess that's what happens when you try to follow dispensational/zionist views to quickly: You walk the fine line between orthodoxy and heresy. Anyway, there are some less than helpful statements in there, such as his rejection of what he deems to be "replacement theology," so he's still not completely off the hook, in my opinion.

Maybe if he would just drop all of his unhelpful dispensationalist views, his view on the relationship between the two covenants would become much clearer.
