This is the planned introduction to the book version of the material found in this blog. It has been quite a long time since I was first encouraged to take my twenty-four week Sunday School class discussing the various Eschatological views and put them into written form. The series of classes has been available to […]

The Fellowship Hall of the Baptist Church I was raised in grew dark as the lights dimmed. I was seated cross-legged near the front of the hall as a bright light flickered from behind and the clicking noise of a movie projector started with a cough and began a steady chirping. I was seated next […]

Previously we discussed the initial purposes for even discussing eschatology as a subject and why many avoid it all together. The modern Church’s obsession with all things “apocalyptic” has made a more intelligent and doctrinal discussion on the matter more difficult.

With this post we will conclude the general overview of the four views of the Millennium. Greater discussion will follow this post on the very popular Dispensational (Left Behind) view. AMILLENNIALISM With that in mind let us begin our overview of the four Millennial position by describing first, Amillennialism. Each overview will deal with the […]

We learn quite a bit from our past…even when we don’t mean to.   I remember visiting the Youth Group at the Church I was raised in after several months of visiting different churches in the area. The most recent church I had visited was a large Lutheran church in a nearby town that I […]

Don’t Know Much ‘Bout History My favorite subject in school was history. I loved learning about the Pilgrims, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and mad dash of the early settlers to claim land and start new communities in the West. But I wasn’t ready for History as taught in my Freshman College class. The […]
