Some time back, I had the opportunity to interact with some A-Millennialists on the subject of eschatology. I wrote a series entitled Illumination since that was the name of the blog at which Dr. Sam Waldron and others were posting. Because my current series touches on where Pre-Millennialism and A-Millennialism agree and disagree, I thought I would post links to the entire series in one post. For those who want to see how I answer the questions that A-Millennialists pose to me without resorting to dispensational tactics, you may want to check out this series. I feel as if I provided answers for every question they asked me, but I did not receive the same reciprocation. There are many questions that I have for A-Millenialists that remain unanswered.
The one thing that struck me throughout the conversation was how friendly and non-threatening the comments were made. I really have no problem discussing these things and I appreciated the irenic tone of those who responded to and questioned me. I feel this is the way to have meaningful dialogue rather than tearing each other down. Here are the links for those blog posts.
I would point out that I asked quite a few questions that these fellows would not address. On the other hand, I answered every question they asked me. I also took the opportunity to explain my positions in places where they claimed I contradicted scripture or denied the person of Jesus Christ. I still wonder why these A-Millennialists would make this claim that Pre-Millennialists deny the person and work of Jesus Christ in light of the excellent theology that many Pre-Millennialists hold. Is it because they want to shock folks? I don’t know. Anyway, it’s a good read to browse through these articles.
