    So is it logical to conclude that just because SOME Messianic prophecies have been fulfilled, then ALL Messianic prophecies have been fulfilled? In my opinion, that qualifies as logical fallacy otherwise known as an overgeneralization. Just because Jesus entered Jerusalem riding on a donkey does not negate other scripture which states that he will return to the earth on a white horse. Thanks for the discussion.

    I know. That's what I posted (that you do not believe the millennium began in 70 AD).

    No. That's not what I'm suggesting. I'm trying to relay to you that a "partial preterist" is one that believes that SOME (not all) prophecies are in the past. That's it. That's all there is to it.

    I think you're having difficulty understanding my view, because you're making assumptions about what I believe based on what you've heard/read about a person that believes one thing similar to me (but that doesn't mean that my other views line up with that person or group). That's [part of] the trouble with presumptions.

    The problem is that partial preterism means different things to different people. It's impossible for me to presume, when you don't totally lay out what you believe to be literal and what is figurative in your estimation. One partial preterist may take something be literal while another partial preterist may take it as symbolic. That is the reason why I believe partial preterism is a flawed hermeneutic. Certainly not the method I learned in seminary. Thanks for the discuss and we'll just have to leave it at that.

    Well...that's been my point. We don't all fit into a box (but I've also tried to explain that -against your resistance to believe it- you are also a preterist if you only believe Jesus was the Messiah prophesied about in the Old Testament). To be fair, though.....you HAVE made a few presumptions in this thread.

    I haven't attended seminary - but I still don't think you're understanding what basic preterism is.


    You're probably correct.

    It isn't! We will be caught up to the Jesus on the last day! Note that this happens the same day that he wicked are caught up.

    Where are you getting this idea from in Scripture?

    All men will be judged by God, therefore the wicked will be taken up to a judgement of death.

    Rapture spelled backwards is Eruption misspelled.

    That doesn't answer my question as to where that idea was coming from in Scripture....but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I will answer you after you correctly answer my question! Where is the Denominational style of the rapture in the N.T.?
