ELDONA's Wiki Entry Has Serious Errors of Omission. Their Videos Are Fake History
Pastor Heiser admitted to learning how the evil of Objective Justification in 2000, when he admired and sold Thy Strong Word on his website. We often talked about OJ, which he certainly knew, because he supported OJ at the earlier independent church conference he attended in Norfolk, Nebraska. Heiser's comment about Balmer at the conference was, "He denies Objective Justification!"
2006 A.D. - ELDONA was founded, after Heiser was vested in his LCMS retirement fund. I had asked him if anything was going on, a handy honesty test. He said "No," but I had already found his new domain - eldona.org - on one of my searches. Nothing was going on, but he registered a domain name of his nascent archdiocese.
All the ELDONA pastors (except one) were graduates of Ft. Wayne, an OJ seminary. They adored the ravings of David Scaer, the avid castigator of Justification by Faith and the Walter A. Maier patriarchs, I, II, and III.
As I wrote before, at some point Heiser was deliriously happy about fellowship with the Rolf Preus Synod, comprised of Rolf plus a few pastors also kicked out of the Little Sect on the Prairie, united by a common dislike of Pope John the Malefactor. When Heiser made it clear that he had no problems with OJ, I gave up on him. Likewise, he stopped phoning me for advice, money-raising help. book-selling, etc.
|Heiser posed with Rolf's OJ posse for his Salem, Malone and ELDONA group. He said they would get rid of Rolf in time, and they did.|
2013 A.D. - ELDONA had a sudden and convenient passion for Justification by Faith - after Pastor Paul Rydecki found his mind clarified by discussions among the WELSian Intrepid Lutherans. The Rolf Synod angrily responded and left the alliance. One ELDONUT was angry with me about the sudden change of doctrine, which is odd, given the shun button pushed by Heiser years earlier.
2019 A.D. - As a group, ELDONA has videotaped themselves lying about their doctrinal history.
The Right Reverend Bishop James Milhouse Heiser was not "fully cognizant of the extent of this heresy OJ being taught - until Rydecki was kicked out of WELS for denying it. (16.57)
Orwell's 1984 - ATP, aka The ELDONA Ministry of Truth - is busy manufacturing its history, just as the Walther Perryville cult did - after they robbed and kicked out their bishop.
Once the senior generation dies off or becomes equally forgetful, the residue can build some shrines to The Great Heiser.
Heiser spoke at Higher Things, the OJ Jungendbund of the LCMS. Klemet Preus (RIP) was president of that group - and was known for his OJ fanaticism, no less than his brothers Rolf and Dan Preus.
