Gary DeMar must be a bitter and small minded man if he feels the need to ceaselessly harp on this topic.

The fundamentalist lust to predict the future is the canary under the carpet, the problem that just won't go away, no matter how many careers are wrecked and lives are short-changed by those who proclaim as absolute truth the notion that God has already decided to take a dive.

If God Himself has ordained the global triumph of evil, then who are we to resist?

The traffic seems to be going two ways: some pre-mil evangelicals, like Bart Ehrlman, jump ship and become atheists. Those who retain their integrity, common sense, and fidelity to the Lord and the Bible, grow into the mature eschatology that proclaims the universal lordship of Jesus Christ, and the certainty of the gospel's victory within history. I don't know of any evangelical post-mils who run up the white flag and make haste to cower and cringe with the pre-mils.

“The fundamentalist lust to predict the future is the canary under the carpet,”

The fundamentalist desire to see Christ return as he promised is the dynamic of their faith. Much like the early Christians, “They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath. “

“and the certainty of the gospel’s victory within history.”

Sounds like you’ve chosen to take your seat with the Christians-Socialists of last century’s Europe.

Good luck with that Pollyanna!
