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!

  • No, Trump is not the "antichrist"

    I know that many leftists would love to believe that, but it's not true...

    (an actual book on Amazon)



    IMO, this is analogous to folks that set specific dates on the Lord's return and end up giving Christianity and eschatology a black eye. It's the same exact thing.

    Every president and Pope ever has been speculated as the Antichrist by somebody.

Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

      That still doesn't make it right and should be addressed because it tarnishes serious discussions about eschatology. And I only really recall Obama being dubbed the antichrist by some on the right.

      It's kind unique in regard to Trump, because you have two extremes. You have some Christians who downright adore Trump (arguably to the point of idolatry) and other Christians that apparently believe he's the antichrist. I don't recall a contrast like that before, but I could be wrong.

          I would imagine anything that underscores OMB, they're all in no matter how wild it sounds.

            It’s like how they throw scripture around, always out of context, of course, whenever they think it suits their purposes.

              Obama had the same thing just on the left.

                  I can kind of sort of understand Obama, being how messianic the MSM made him out to be and how mesmerized the masses were when he gave his speeches during his campaign.

                  But even still, we've got to stop this "antichrist" mislabeling, particularly since it's not only hurting Christianity and diluting eschatology, but the descriptive interpretation given to us in Rev 13 & 17 pretty much excludes most people that have been labelled antichrist.

                    Isn't the Antichrist supposed to fool the entire world into following him? Not just US republicans. Trump is one of the most hated men in the world.

                        I agree, things have gotten pretty out of hand with this.

                          I sort of see an argument that Trump is one of the antichrists that come before the Antichrist comes out ( 1 John 2:18 ). I can't see him as the antichrist.

                            I must admit, it's quite the spectacle watching the two extreme sides revolving around Trump. If you're somewhere in the middle, like I am, it's hard to defend Trump because of his extremely flawed characteristics; but at the same time, it's hard not to defend him because of how deranged the left is in their hatred of him. Being that I believe we're in the last days, I don't quite know what to make of that and how this will play out, but it's definitely very unusual.

                              It’s all setting up for the one who will bring a false peace to the world. When there’s peace in Israel, then start paying attention.

                              As a futurist, I believe the church will be removed before the Antichrist comes on the scene. So I’m not concerned about who the Antichrist is. I'm just expecting the Rapture any time now.
