That was for the "e-pub" book. E-pub books are not compatible with Kindles.

My thread is for all of us Kindle Readers. :-)

Commentary by Sproul the Preterist? Throw it in the garbage, in my view, his preterism has ruined his reputation, it poisons everything he writes.

What level of preterism does he espouse?

My 40 year journey as a committed pre-millennial dispensationalist was struck in the face yesterday by the cold hard fact that Israeli nation, God's supossed chosen people, chose to make taxpayer paid Abortion on demand available to all.

I have now come to question whether or the the Nation of Israel, as it exists today, is really the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, or just another Socialist wart on Mother Earth's terrestrial backside.

One might say that I am currently in an eschatological flux.

And does that require an eschatological flux capacitor?

(Is it Friday?)

Nothing like hijacking my own thread.

Go for it.

Seems to me that, looking back to the good old days, all that lived in Israel were not true Jews. Many true Jews lived in exile. So the question is this: Is Israel a location or a relationship with God?

Not advocating one position over the other. Lots of folks back then didn’t see Jesus when he walked among them. I don’t wanbt to miss Him this time around, granted He will be hard to miss. I just pray “Come Lord Jesus.”

Back to the Future Friday

And HOW APPROPRIATE

Since preterism says the future is past!

Jesus has more patience than I do.

I remember an old bumper sticker that put me in stitches back in the Jesus Movement days:

“JESUS IS COMING, AND BOY IS HE P!$$&D”

That was back before Roe v. Wade.

Partial, hardly any difference from the full preterists. Is there such a thing as partial pregnant?

I’m a Historic Premill, I agree with your assessment of Zionism.

Historic Premill is the alternative you should consider. Most of the Preterist/Amillennialist view point out the errors of dispensationalism, then falsely presenting their view as the only alternative.

Hardly any difference, except a belief in a literal resurrection and a literal Second Coming. But why let that get in your way?

Yeah, but the full preterists are “fullish”.

We all are a little partial in terms of things fulfilled. To be fair, though, even the partial preterists go way too far in their finding of things fulfilled.

I choke, though, at the 70 AD return of Christ. Gotta admit, that one is too big to swallow. :>)

I think the fulls are correct in calling the partials “inconsistent” preterists. At least the fulls are consistent.

Both interpret the Olivet discourse (Matthew and Mark), and the whole of Revelation as already fulfilled in the past. That’s where they, partials and fulls, have gone around the bend, in my view.

Despite the fact that the resurrection and 2nd coming are intrinsic to the Olivet discourse (conflating the Thessalonian epistles with it), the partials caught so much heat they opted to remove both from the standard “this generation shall not pass” scenario. I think they were inconsistent, and dishonest, in doing it.

If you are going to use “this generation shall not pass” as preterists, partial and full, apply it to the Olivet discourse, then, to be consistent, the resurrection and 2nd coming had to have taken place in 70 AD.

Yeah, I choke with you, and so did the partials. See my last post.
