The Lord’s Supper within
a Preterist’s mindset
Within the Preterist view, either full or partial, if you see the coming of the Lord as purely the 70 ad judgement, does that mean you do not partake in communion?
1 Corinthians 11:26 ” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.” Continue reading
The following question was asked of Dave Hunt on his Berean Call website:
Question: You have criticized preterism and amillennial teaching as being unbiblical, but teachers such as R. C. Sproul present what clearly are reasoned conclusions for their positions. What do you say? Continue reading

Why isn’t New Orleans under water
since it’s below sea level?
St. Petersburg, Florida
Strange, but true: the Big Easy is, on average, eight feet below sea level. Tall levees to the north and south keep the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain from pouring into the center of the city. And an intricate system of pumping stations and canals keep the land dry, even after heavy rainfall.
Without this drainage system, much of the city would be engulfed in water. New Orleans occupies swampland created by millions of years’ worth of silt deposits from the Mississippi River. As a result, the ground is wet and spongy, and prone to flooding from rainfall and hurricanes.
Ironically, all the pumps, canals, and levees that work so hard to keep New Orleans above water are actually causing the city to sink at a rate of three feet per century. Some scientists predict that by the year 2100, the “City That Care Forgot” will be under water. Does New Orleans have a deep-sea Mardi Gras in its future? Scuba gear or not, it’s interesting to ponder.

ACTS i. 11. -’ This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go unto heaven.’
Without any doubt, when you engage in serious discussions of the A.D. 70 Parousia of Christ, those in opposition will quickly appeal to Acts 1:9-11 as their “definitive proof” that Jesus did not return in A.D. 70. The argument goes something like this:
- Fact: Jesus left visibly in a physical body.
- Fact: The angel told the disciples Jesus would return “in like manner” as they had seen him go.
- Conclusion: Jesus must return visibly, in a physical body.
In this brief article we hope to demonstrate some of the logical problems with this argument. Our main focus will be to examine Acts chapter 1 in light of other passages that the opponents of Covenant Eschatology also appeal to as descriptions of Christ’s Second Coming. Space prevents us from examining the Greek term translated as “in like manner” to show that it is most often used of a metaphoric likeness, and not a specific literal likeness.1 Instead, we want to examine Jesus’ coming in light of the Transfiguration as well as Revelation, and compare it to this passage in Acts chapter 1. We hope to demonstrate that those who so vehemently insist that Christ is coming back exactly as he left, are, to say the very least, totally inconsistent.

In this article I am going to write not really a rebuttal but a deeper understanding upon how the Preterist who holds to IBM, Immortal Body Now, is seeming to be accused upon being labeled a Hyper-Preterist or some how tied into Universalism which is not true in the least. Continue reading
The Devil’s Horns or is it something else?
R.J. Dio – “I doubt very much if I would be the first one who ever did that. That’s like saying I invented the wheel, I’m sure someone did that at some other point. I think you’d have to say that I made it fashionable. I used it so much and all the time and it had become my trademark until the Britney Spears audience decided to do it as well. So it kind of lost its meaning with that. But it was…I was in Sabbath at the time. It was symbol that I thought was reflective of what that band was supposed to be all about. It’s NOT the devil’s sign like we’re here with the devil. It’s an Italian thing I got from my Grandmother called the ‘Malocchio‘. It’s to ward off the Evil Eye or to give the Evil Eye, depending on which way you do it. It’s just a symbol but it had magical incantations and attitudes to it and I felt it worked very well with Sabbath. So I became very noted for it and then everybody else started to pick up on it and away it went. But I would never say I take credit for being the first to do it. I say because I did it so much that it became the symbol of rock and roll of some kind.”

Straw Man in Eschatology – How to deal with it?
In the Preterist view, God has canceled every covenant with Israel. There is no future or significance for the Jewish people or Israel as a nation. There is no fulfillment of the Davidic covenant. There is no reign of Messiah from a throne in Jerusalem. All of God’s promises to Israel have been nullified. Israel has been replaced by the church. Continue reading
