THE LAST DAYS FULFILLED

Bless me, Father, for I have...  

not blogged in six months!!!

So goes my (formerly) Roman Catholic confession of blogospheric negligence. I am guilty as charged, and fully prepared to do penance right now. So today, I have decided to post about my recent excursions into preterism, also known as "fulfilled" or "covenant eschatology."

Why would I pursue so lofty a goal as understanding the Second Coming of Christ (with other various and sundry "last things" to be studied) you may ask? I am glad you asked. I really am.

Yesterday, I discovered an excellent series of YouTube videos on the subject of the "last days" published on the Heart of the Matter channel. My favorite preterist/evangelist for Christ, Dr Don Preston, has once again proven his genuine mettle for leading the charge against evangelical far-sightedness (futurism) in eschatology, or the study of last things. A great topic for our times, right? Always.



Suffice it to say, after having watched this debate and lecture series from Dr Preston in its entirety, I feel more confident than ever in the Bible. But more importantly, it has reinforced my persuasion toward the preterist viewpoint -- not as a replacement for the historic Christian faith, but as a supplement to it. Perhaps another Reformation is in order.

All good Christians want reformation, right? Of course we do! The hardest part of admitting to this is coming to grips with our own personal need for it. Ouch! Not always fun, but always beneficial. I hope to spark a micro-Reformation of sorts with this particular blog post, as part of a greater Reformation already happening, Lord willing.

That reformation should include eschatology, in my opinion.
