Yes, it's true: I am a closet Preterist, with Futurist tendencies.

That's a good thing, right?

I mean, the possibility that I'm wrong about theology is far greater than the possibility that I'm right. And I'd rather admit I was wrong, than go on thinking I was right, when I wasn't. Does that sound crazy?

As long as Scriptures come up that seem to suggest if not mandate a bodily resurrection, I'm not ruling it out. There are plenty of futurists out there who will lend a credible warning to us followers of Christ who think maybe Jesus came in 70 AD as He said he would, that we're not Christians!

I believe in the Second Coming of Christ! I just think He came already. He is here!

Atheists use Jesus' own words "against" Him. They say, oh, He said He would return "soon." Oh well, I guess He forgot to come! Here we are, 2000 years later (almost), and He still hasn't "come again." Then they assert, that's why I'm not a Christian!

Late night musings.

Another Scripture which ruptures my infallible belief in Preterism is Matthew 10:28.

"And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.[f1]"(Matthew 10:28 ESV)

[1] 10:28 Greek Gehenna

Hmmm. "Destroy both soul and body." Sounds like a physical body got thrown into eternal punishment (Gehenna).

I've been seriously looking into this whole preterist thing. I mean, being told I am in heresy, and I am embracing a false (another) gospel is bad, bad, bad. I have done everything in my power to re-educate myself in the ways of futurism, i.e., watched a Greg Laurie sermon on the Second Coming of Christ, and read Calvin's Institutes about the resurrection of the flesh. This, and praying that God would deliver me from false doctrine must be a good start on the road to repentance, recovery, and reform, right?

Well, I guess it's working. Now I'm scared out of my wits to even "go there" anymore. Blood really is thicker than water!

Gosh, now what am I? A confused, recovering (full) Preterist. May the God of the Bible have mercy on me and all those nasty full-preterists out there on the Internet. Aarrrgh!

For those of us who have been monitoring, albeit informally, the progress of the New World Order (a la Alex Jones and others), I happily stumbled upon an article on Townhall by Victor Davis Hansen, the esteemed historian/farmer who can melt petrified wood with his liquid "dulcet-toned" voice on Hugh Hewitt's radio show.

The article, "The New Old World Order," describes a host of problematic tendencies by independent nations to revert to their ancient rivalries and hostilities, in spite of the best intentions of the Bilderberg Group and others who were hoping (and planning) for a nice, clean world takeover.

Oh, well. I guess we will have to reform human nature (wink, wink, nod, nod) before that takes place. Until then, we civilized Christians and others will have to settle for World War III.
