Re: Trump is scaring me

There are much more efficient ways to spend 5.7 billion for border security than Trump's wall (that Mexico, not US taxpayers, was supposed to pay for anyway) However... if wasting 5.7 billion on Trump's vanity project as part of a "Wall for DACA" deal will take care of the Dreamers, then let's do i...

Re: Trump is scaring me

Personally, I don't think the Dems should fund the wall, period. The wall is stupid. I have no problem with funding for border security, though. It's completely reasonable to beef up security at our current points of entry and increase monitoring in areas where nobody lives. Trump is welcome to pre...

Re: Trump is scaring me

I hope Trump takes some constructive steps towards ending the shutdown today. This has gone on waaaaaaaaay too long!! First and foremost we need to let the government workers go back to work (or in many cases get paid for their work they are doing). It is wrong to hold American workers hostage becau...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

Some Thoughts... And here, in Revelation 17, the angel speaks a mystery: 6 And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her, I marveled greatly. 7 But the angel said to me, “Why do you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of ...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

Christians should try to stop trying to figure out the whole "end of times" thing, when and where and all that. I mean, Jesus Himself says to not try to do that. Just to point out... I have not made any claim to know when the Second Coming will take place. As you point out, Jesus tells us that we c...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

DB: However, I do embrace the "already" "not yet" premise on a number of Scriptural topics. I believe that there was one and only one Great Tribulation that resulted in the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple and brought an end to the remnants of the Old Covenant. However, Christians of every a...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

DB, I must say I have really enjoyed this thread, as there is so much to chew on. I have mentioned much on the forum of the problems with the various endtimes views, as they all turn upon currently missing info or assumptions to work - meaning that without the missing info, or if one gets a key var...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

DB, here Hollett is interviewed about why he moved away from Preterism - I'm viewing it now: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QupdjuUEFiU Thanks... I actually found this earlier this evening and watched the first 10 or so minutes. I wanted to see how he dealt with the time frame issue. From what I saw...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

Familiar with this book? I went to Amazon.com to take a quick look at what this book is about. If I understand the reviews of this book correctly, then Hollett is denying that Jesus prophesied the Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. If that is an accurate representation of Hollett's position, then I...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

Familiar with this book? Nope... And I may or may not agree with the basic premise of the book. I don't know if it is challenging Partial Preterism or Full Preterism. As I noted in a previous post I believe that fully realized eschatology (full/hyper Preterism) is unScriptural. The only prophecies ...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

Here's my basic personal outline with references. I don't claim perfect knowledge, but these are key passages for me and represent my current operating model. (Disclaimer... Gentry does not agree with everything I post below) Great Tribulation (66 AD - 70 AD) - Mark 13:14-23 - Matthew 24:15-28 - Luk...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

I can give you my .02... In reading GotQuestions assertions about partial preterism, ( https://www.gotquestions.org/partial-preterism.html ), it confuses me. Here's an outtake: "The partial preterist viewpoint leads to a belief in amillenialism (or post-millenialism) and is associated with covenant ...

Re: The Olivet Discourse

So this Preterminist belief of a first century fulfillment of the tribulation and end also has a variety of beliefs within its camp - as you have the FULL Preterminists and the partial ones - see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preterism There is a biiiig difference between Partial Preterists a...

Re: US Withdrawing from Syria

I was happy to hear a voice of reason coming out of the administration on Syria. Unfortunately voices of reason are often publicly squashed by Trump, even when those voices of reason are top officials in his administration. I hope Bolton is right here. I find it alarming that we're reduced to relyi...
