In short, if one cannot present a clear, consistent argument from all of the relevant material, then one begins to make a series of exceptions in order to excuse away the apparent inconsistencies. Such a way of argument is the stuff of politicians. Continue reading “Sam Frost: Critique of Stevens’ View of Resurrection (2018)”
there is, indeed, an historical connection between full Preterism and Universalism. (But then this is true of every other sect as well.) The historical connection between Preterism and Universalism has now been documented by Todd Dennis Continue reading “Kurt Simmons: The Attack on Full Preterism, Death was Destroyed in AD70? (2007)”
the disciples in Matthew 24.3 are essentially asking Jesus, what is the sign that you are the son of man in Daniel 7.13, 14? Continue reading “Sam Frost: The Parousia of Jesus (2017)”
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 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.

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)”
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)”
Lightfoot understood, in his commentaries, that Luke was addressing the Destruction of Jerusalem. How could Lightfoot affirm, on the one hand, the Confession, and yet, on the other, not use the Scriptures proofs provided? This is easy to answer. Continue reading “Sam Frost: Bishop John Lightfoot, Preterism and the Westminster Confession of Faith (2013)”
Supposedly, these verses go a long way in demonstrating the Hyper Preterist contention that all prophecy was fulfilled in AD 70… However, if it is conceded that these verses do, in fact, teach the idea that the Son of Man’s “coming in his kingdom” is to be related solely, that is, exclusively to the razing of Jerusalem in the Jewish War of 66-70 AD, then the Hyper Preterist thinks he or she has virtually demonstrated the point that all prophecy was fulfilled by this time. Continue reading “Sam Frost: Matthew 17:27-28, with Responses (2012)”
“Jesus is trumping that time, saying that the coming desolation of the Temple in A.D. 70 will be worse, and he is using the language of Daniel. He is not, then, saying, “this is that”, but “this will be worse than that.” ”Great tribulation” is a term, interestingly enough, that is related throughout Israel’s history. In Judges 2:15; 10:9; Nehemiah 9:37 we find the same phrase ” Continue reading “Sam Frost: Daniel 12:2 (2012)”
This is far more acceptable in “explaining” what appears to some as a unsteady stream of Church History. There is a steady stream. It didn’t start in AD 70. It started with the arrival of Messiah; with his pouring out the Spirit. Continue reading “Sam Frost: Scholar, Philip Mauro (2012)”
What Isaiah is saying is not that death, sinners and accusedness will still be around in the new heavens and the new earth, but that, in contrast to the sixth century B.C.E. setting, where Israel is being torn apart and ravaged, Continue reading “Sam Frost: New Heavens/New Earth (2011)”
PAROUSIA never indicates the act of coming or the arrival of a person, but denotes the presence of one who has already arrived. Continue reading “Ken Palmer: The misapplication of “coming” from full preterism to premillenialism (2011)”
Among scholars there is no debate about the expectations that existed in the audiences concomitant with the prophetic utterances and traditions, but to my knowledge no FP’s affirm that timing determines mode of fulfillment for those OT prophecies.
I’ve been reading Samuel Frost’s articles lately as he, as a Full Preterist, is trying to persuade his fellow-FPs that “infinite procreation” is bad theology. He has been pointing out to his FP colleagues that FP needs to add a “consummation doctrine” or FP theology is not going to survive. He argues that FP begins with assuming a paradox and that is not a good way for a theological system to begin. LOL – I agree.
