a proper understanding of justification destroys their claim that death was not defeated until AD70 Continue reading “Sharon Nichols: Spurgeon, Justification and Full Preterism”
The similarities between Josephus’ writing and the Apostolic testimony are remarkable. It appears that the apostolic teaching accords closely with the Pharisaical doctrine on the resurrection. Continue reading “Marcus Booker: The Resurrection: What and When? (2004)”
The confusion is that for the Reformed the “covenant of works,” contrary to what one might naturally think, is not synonymous with the old covenant. Conversely, the “covenant of grace” is not synonymous with the new. Continue reading “Marcus Booker: Federal Doctrine: Adam and Christ as Covenant Representatives (2003)”
When RJ Rushdoony, the grandpapa of theonomy, died, the movement ended. One of his students, Andrew Sandlin, declared the end of it. It was a good thing to declare. Preterism, however, is a different story. Continue reading “Russell Warren: Reflections on the End of Movements (2007)”
Many have benefited from this in seeing the orthodox view compared to Preston’s. For that I will continue to engage in this venue of writing responses (to which there appears to be no end in sight). Continue reading “Sam Frost: Update on the Informal Debate with Preston (2017)”
Preterism has a long history of adherents who recanted. Here the works of three prominent men who embraced preterist or hyperpreterist views, but later recanted, are examined. Continue reading “Doug Cox: Recanting (Full) Preterism: Abauzit, Townley, Desprez (2011)”
By making the assumption that Jesus is only taking about the physical generation of the first century, one misses the exact point Paul was making about the allegorical things it represented.

I suppose that Hymeneus and Philetus had been with Paul long enough to know — in outline, at least — what he taught regarding the resurrection. It is certain that they must have known one predominant fact: that the resurrection would only occur at the parousia of Christ. Continue reading “Brian Simmons: Hymeneus and Philetus (2010)”
Satan was free during the entire 40-year period that Hyper-Preterists call the Millennium. Let us look at some key texts in their chronological order, and we’ll see that all throughout this period, Satan was very much “in commission.” Continue reading “Brian Simmons: Was Satan Really Destroyed in AD70? (2010)”
Preterism is gaining a foothold among scholars and laypeople, but some are getting worried that some adherents are taking it to unbiblical extremes. Sam Frost went there and back.

I would suggest that Preterism provides the context for the beginning of the Thousand Years. The Thousand Years provides a template for the Church in our present time. There are many theological issues that go along with all of that. Continue reading “William Vincent: Propositions of Preterist-Amillennialism (2017)”
Sam, I see that you are “kicking against the goads” as you are trying to disprove Kingism and Prestonism. I think that you are missing a healthy Preterism that sees much of what you currently see as the same truths. Continue reading “Eckhart-Frost: Preterist Perspectives Discussion & Debate (2017)”
Two well-known men who have abandoned the full preterist label and adopted the preterist-idealist label are John Noe and Todd Dennis. Both of these men are outstanding scholars. The perspectives of these men differ, and we will attempt to highlight how each sees eschatology.
The next stop after full preterism is varied, but many people once they have spent time passionately believing and espousing full preterism and then leave it are never really the same. How could they be, after all they were so certain they finally found the truth. Continue reading “Roderick Edwards: Life After Full Preterism (2013)”
He, a man, a priest, a king and Lord entered into the Most Holy Place and redeemed his people. That he, a man, is also, God, the Logos, the Son, the Second Person of the Trinity, two natures, One Person. Continue reading “Sam Frost: Taking on Don K. Preston’s Jesus (2017)”
