I am continuing my series in challenging to debate and giving a response to James White, Shabir Ally (Muslim), Sam Shamoun, and Anthony Rogers concerning the Islamic charge that Jesus was a “false prophet” in that He allegedly taught that His Second Coming connected to “the end of the world” would take place in some… Read More »

PART 1 – JAMES WHITE’S EMBARRASSING FAILURE TO ADDRESS MATT. 16:27-28/MATT. 24/1 THESS. 4:16-17 IN HIS DEBATE WITH SHABIR ALLY AND MY PUBLIC CHALLENGE TO DEBATE AND RESPONSES TO: SHABIR ALLY, JAMES WHITE, SAM SHAMOUN, AND ANTHONY ROGERS (MATT. 16:27-28).
Introduction: In my studies of Islam I have been focusing in on arguments coming from such men as Shabir Ally whom allege that one of the reasons that “prove” Christians have a corrupted NT is that it depicts a Jesus that was a “false prophet.” For Shabir, the NT cannot be trusted in its revelation… Read More »
A FULL PRETERIST REFUTATION OF THE WATCH TOWER/JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES – SECOND COMING/PAROUSIA’S FULFILLMENT IN THE 1874 – 1914 & COUNTING “THIS GENERATION” OR THE AD 30 – AD 70 “THIS GENERATION”?
It is my purpose in this article to put something together so that when I meet and interact with Jehovah’s Witnesses in person and or on the Internet, I can give them something concrete and personal as to why I reject their view of the parousia taking place in 1874/1914 and their views on Jesus… Read More »
ANSWERING ISLAMIC AND MORMON ARGUMENTS ON THE FAILED PROMISES OF THEIR “PROPHETS” AND HOW THEY DEAL WITH NT IMMINENCE
I remember many years ago at The Master’s College one of our instructors invited a Mormon apologist to a class so that he could answer questions and challenges from the students. I had just become a Full Preterist not long before he arrived and was pleasantly surprised that the Lord opened an immediate door for me with… Read More »
A FULL PRETERIST EXAMINATION OF THE “END TIME” “HOLY LAND” “HOLY WAR” ESCHATOLOGY OF ISLAM, JUDAISM, AND DISPENSATIONAL ZIONISM
Introduction “The War of Ideas” Everyone looking at the conflict in the Middle East (and U.S. policy affecting that area) realizes that while engaging militarily at times is necessary, the ultimate solution will have to come from another area. Therefore, many see the various conflicting religious theologies/eschatologies fueling these areas as being solved ultimately through… Read More »
AN EXEGESIS OF MATTHEW 3:2-12 AND RELATED TEXTS – JOHN THE BAPTIST’S ESCHATOLOGY “THE WAY” TO THE “KINGDOM” (THROUGH THE SECOND COMING) WAS “AT HAND” IN AD 70
“In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, 2 and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” (Matt. 3:2). When it comes to the Kingdom of heaven or Kingdom of God the NT teaches three aspects of fulfillment – 1. the “already” 2. the “receiving” and 3. the… Read More »

Here is the short version: The Lord providentially guided me and opened my eyes to Full Preterism by allowing me to first experience the frustration, confusion and errors of Dispensationalism and then later seeing that a synthesis between the classic Amillennial view and the Partial Preterist view seemed more exegetical and Biblical (ie. Full Preterism… Read More »
“CHRISTIAN” DISPENSATIONAL ZIONISM AND JOHN HAGEE’S 10 SIGNS REFUTED – ALL THE PROMISES OF GOD FULFILLED “IN CHRIST” NOT “IN THE LAND”!
(This is an excerpt taken from a much larger article/book I have been working on over the last 5 months. It has not been edited yet, but still will benefit those that are studying this subject and are open to an honest and exegetical critique. Enjoy!) 3. The Eschatology of “Christian” Dispensational Zionism: Introduction: The modern day Christian Zionist… Read More »
IS JESUS STILL IN A PHYSICAL BODY POST AD 30? IF JESUS DIDN’T COME BACK LITERALLY AND THERE WAS NO LITERAL RESURRECTION IN AD 70 DOES THAT MEAN FULL PRETERISM IS FALSE? CAN SOULS BE RAISED? ARE DEAD CHRISTIANS “SUB-HUMAN” WITHOUT THEIR PHYSICAL BODIES? IF SO WAS JESUS “SUB-HUMAN” FOR THREE DAYS AND NIGHTS?
By: Michael J. Sullivan & David A. Green In the second edition of our book, “House Divided Bridging the Gap in Reformed Eschatology…” we thoroughly responded to Futurist critics that have attempted to refute Full Preterism with such objections as these: Jesus’s Second Coming couldn’t have occurred in AD 70, because He didn’t literally or… Read More »
