By BEN FELLER, Associated Press Writer Ben Feller, Associated Press Writer 1 hr 51 mins ago
WASHINGTON – A "substantial" number of the roughly 100,000 U.S. combat troops to be pulled out of Iraq by Aug. 31, 2010, will remain in the war zone through at least the end of this year to ensure national elections there go smoothly, senior Obama administration… Continue

I like following Gary Demar's works and just read his recent article on his site americanvision.org. Gary shows in detail of how the dominant premill eschatological view has affected our worldview and efforts in the political arena and minimized our voice. For many, the overall problems have become so overwhelming and far reaching, the mindset has become to simply do nothing and remain silent since Jesus will come back to fix all. In defense of the Gospel in such trying times, I think it is… Continue

The Meeting in the Air - I Thessalonians 4:17
By Dr. Randall E. Otto
"The Meeting in the Air (1 Thess 4:17)," Horizons in Biblical Theology 19 (1997):192-212,
The Pauline assertion that those who are alive at the parousia will be caught up with the dead in Christ "to meet the Lord in the air" (1 Thess 4:17) is a unique eschatological depiction. This is "the only place where a `rapture' of God's people is associated with the parousia." 1 That Paul should set forth this… Continue

2. Matt 24:3 records the disciples of Jesus clearly associating the destruction of the temple as the end of the Mosaic age and an event that would reveal the presence (or… Continue

Hymenaeus and Philetus
For years futurist eschatologist have been saying Hymenaeus and Philetus were attempting to
overthrow the faith of the disciples in a "FUTURE PHYSICAL" resurrection . (2 Tim 2:18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.)
However if you continue to read the whole context of what is being said all the way through 2 Tim chapter 2 and 3 up to chapter 4:1, you will see that… Continue

I think this personal correspondence might prove to be helpful to other members here. I removed all the names to keep my friend anonymous.
I've known this individual for about 15 years. He was instrumental in shaping my theological formation as I cannot think of any one teacher from whom I learned more theology. He challenged me to go beyond the mild partial preterism of Ken Gentry that I held when I first met him. He also introduced me to Milton Terry. That means I am probably a… Continue
