I am just a Christian with preteristic and somewhat other unorthodox beliefs. I like to claim to be a fully consistent preterist, especially as concerns the resurrection and God's own indwelling presence with and in us, here and now. I have been made perfect in my imperfection ( Hebrews 10:12 )
p.s. I fellowship with a Baptist congregation, and am married to a Baptist; so please forgive me if I get a little longwinded or defensive on certain subjects.
Heya Charles, I surely appreciate your taking the time to post. It is great to hear from you. Regarding the content, I certainly believed much along that exact line as well years ago (it has now been three years since I repented of promoting full preterism. Amazing how time flies!).. but no longer do so. There are really good biblical reasons too, but would take too much text to write out here. How about we hook up on Paltalk some night and talk about it? I find that a good charitable discussion "face to face" is the best way to figure out another person's objections to our landmarks. I've written some material on many of the issues your bring up, however, including (if not especially) Matthew 16:27-28. Just seeing the shift in that one verse has been enough to open the entire hermeneutical approach I am suggesting to full preterists. Blessings!
