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!

    You guys seem to be entertaining theories hundreds of years after the fact.

      Truth does not change. If you know the basis for Catholic doctrines, you can see the Antichrist Papacy still sits in the Temple of God in at least two ways, and possibly three. Chances are, you believe those doctrines too and don't know it.

        Whatever floats your boat.

          You need to make sure you are not under his influence.

            Not sure what you mean by "his," but I base my eschatological analysis on the earliest Christian sources, not sources from hundreds of years later. Jesuits is the 16th century. Darby is the 19th century. Neither of those have anything to do with Christianity of the first two centuries.

            But, like I said, if that's what you want to believe, more power to you.

              Are you Premillennial? The early creeds condemn this as heresy and promote Amillennialism. BTW, Jesus taught Amillennialism against the Pharisee's premillennialism.

                Ditching Premillennialism did free me up from time wasting Eschatological prediction stuff. I am now an Amillenialist.

                  And so now you're free to "waste your time" promoting Amillennialism in an Eschatological forum. Awesome.
