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
Here is an interesting post by Preterist author David Green on another site. He is responding to a another person who wrote to assert a common question/objection about Preterism, namely, why so many early church fathers “missed” prophetic fulfillment for so long.
- If futurism is an error, that doesn’t mean the Spirit “has been a failure in revealing the MEANING/INTERPRETATION of the inspired Word.”
- If futurism is an error, that doesn’t mean the Holy Spirit failed to sustain “the BASIC understanding of Scripture” among the saints throughout time.
- If futurism is an error, that doesn’t mean Jesus and the apostles were “ineffective conveyors/teachers of Scripture.” Continue reading
QUESTION 90: In Heb. 11:5, it says that Enoch “did not see death.” But then in Heb. 11:4-13, it says that Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Sarah “all died in faith.” See the apparent contradiction? Also, Heb. 9:27 says that “it is appointed for men to die once.” (Heb. 9:27) Which is it? Did Enoch not see death? (Heb. 11:5) Or did he die “once” (Heb. 9:27) / die“in faith“? (Heb. 11:13)
Were Elijah and Enoch Raptured to Heaven?
Or did they die like the rest of humanity?
“And no man hath ascended up to heaven,
but he that came down from heaven,
even the Son of man which is in heaven.”
(John 3:13) KJV
In answering the above question, we need first of all to ask whether or not Jesus told the truth when He said,
“And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.” (John 3:13) KJV
Here Jesus said that NO man had ascended up to heaven. So we must believe that at that time no man had ever gone to heaven; no one had ever been there but Jesus Himself.
What then, is the answer in regard to Elijah and Enoch, who are believed by many to have been taken up to heaven? Continue reading

Does Eschatology Matter?
by, David B. Curtis
Osama Bin Laden: “Our terrorism is a good accepted terrorism, because it’s against America, it’s for the purpose of defeating oppression so America would stop supporting Israel, who is killing our children.”
On July 11, I spoke on the subject of how to share the preterist view. In that message I asked the question, “Is eschatology important?” Does it really matter what your view on the second coming is? Will it somehow impact your life? In answer to that question I gave four reasons why your view of eschatology matters. They were:
- Eschatology is a major theological issue in the Scriptures.
- Salvation is tied to eschatology.
- It affects your world view. Continue reading
How to Share the Preterist view of Eschatology
Berean Bible Church
by, David B. Curtis
What verse are we studying today in Colossians? If we were studying Colossians, we would be on 3:18, which basically says, “Wives, submit.” Since so many people are on vacation this week, I thought I’d wait until next week to cover that verse. Continue reading
To all the folks who have walked away from Preterism….. An Open Letter.
Every now and then I get the question: “How is it that after a believer discovers and (apparently) becomes convinced that the bible teaches that Christ’s only Second Coming occurred in Ad 70 at the fall of Jerusalem, that then, after some time (even sometimes after years of believing this), they can just walk away or suddenly announce that they no longer believe in it?” Continue reading
Disputation of NiceneCouncil.com On
The Power and Efficacy of Dispensationalism
The Ninety-Five Theses Against Dispensationalism
What follows should not be interpreted to mean that NiceneCouncil.com nor the historic Bible believing church would place every dispensationalist outside of the Christian faith. We acknowledge that most are dedicated to the foundational orthodox doctrines of Christianity. Unlike the sixteenth century dispute over the doctrine of justification, this is an in-house discussion, a debate among evangelical Christians. We recognize and treasure all born again believers who operate within a dispensational framework as brothers and sisters in Christ. Continue reading
