Eschatology 201 Guidelines

This area of the forum is primarily for Christian theists to discuss orthodox views of Eschatology. Other theist participation is welcome within that framework, but only within orthodoxy. Posts from nontheists that do not promote atheism or seek to undermine the faith of others will be permitted at the Moderator's discretion - such posters should contact the area moderators before posting.


Without turning this forum into a 'hill of foreskins' (Joshua 5:3), I believe we can still have fun with this 'sensitive' topic.

However, don't be misled, dispensationalism has only partly to do with circumcision issues. So, let's not forget about Innocence, Conscience, Promises, Kingdoms and so on.

End time -isms within orthodox Christianity also discussed here. Clearly unorthodox doctrines, such as those advocating "pantelism/full preterism/Neo-Hymenaeanism" or the denial of any essential of the historic Christian faith are not permitted in this section but can be discussed in Comparative Religions 101 without restriction. Any such threads, as well as any that within the moderator's discretions fall outside mainstream evangelical belief, will be moved to the appropriate area.

Millennialism- post-, pre- a-

Futurism, Historicism, Idealism, and Preterism, or just your garden variety Zionism.

From the tribulation to the anichrist. Whether your tastes run from Gary DeMar to Tim LaHaye or anywhere in between, your input is welcome here.

OK folks, let's roll!

  • Apocalypse Past

    It seemed that through 2015 and 2016, there was a real rise in Apocalypse feelings. Several stations had shows like "How the World Ends" or about preppers.

    Now this year, they're gone.

    Was it just a fad reflecting our anxiety on the presidential election? Or is this a lull so we don't know the day or the hour?

    I think it could be either one. Honestly the apocalypse genre is in a sense escapism.

      Seems like there were considerably more as 2000 approached as well as 2012.

      I'm always still in trouble again

          So an outbreak of apocalyptic thinking probably correlates to a rise in anxiety in society. I can handle that.

          Nevertheless, let us keep looking for the return of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.

            The world, having ended on April 23 2018, will also end on June 24 2018: https://www.unilad.co.uk/news/the-bi...une-24th-2018/

            If I were the world, I would want a lie-down after ending so frequently.
