SHOULD KENNETH GENTRY, GARY DEMAR, AND KEITH MATHISON'S PROGRESSIVE PARTIAL PRETERISM BE JUDGED BY THE SAME MEASURE THAT THEY HAVE JUDGED PROGRESSIVE DISPENSATIONALISTS? A “FITTING” RESPONSE IS REQUESTED

In 1989 Greg Bahnsen, Kenneth Gentry, Gary DeMar and Gary North produced House Divided the Break-up of Dispensational Theology which sought to answer their dispensational critics when it came to theonomy and their eschatology – postmillennial partial preterism.   Gary DeMar suggested the title of the book and its apologetic strategy was to “reformulate” Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 12:25 into this,…

A FULL PRETERIST RESPONSE TO GARY DEMAR'S ARTICLE "ANTI-POSTMILLENNIALIST MAKES WEAK CASE" – ARE POSTMILLENNIALISTS WINNING THE DEBATE ON ESCHATOLOGY WHEN THEY STEAL OUR AD 30 – AD 70 JUDGMENT AND RESURRECTION OF THE LIVING AND DEAD VIEW?!?

I have been a full preterist now for well over 20 years and have been following Gary DeMar and American Vision’s (AV) writings the entire time.  And there is nothing more upsetting to me than to watch DeMar and AV make these kind of claims: DeMar and his postmillennial partial preterist colleagues are allegedly winning the debate on eschatology. Full preterism is…

TLB Show Matthew 24:35-36ff. End of Planet Earth Change of Subject? "Heaven and earth will pass away…" "But of that day and hour…"

Most agree that Matthew 24:1-34 contain the fall of Jerusalem, but do verses 35-36ff. indicate a change of subject to another coming of Christ to end and renew planet earth?  We and other Partial Preterists such as Gary DeMar, Joel McDurmon and Keith Mathison argue “no.”  But then does it follow from these Partial Preterists that Jesus didn’t have much…

Mike Sullivan and William Bell wrap up their series on what theologians have called, “The Big Three” (Matt. 10:22-23; 16:27-28; 24:34).  Did Jesus in fact predict that His Second Coming, end of the age, de-creation and resurrection would occur within some of the lifetimes of His contemporary audience or in their “this generation”?  Tune in and you be a Beren…

The Living Body Show: The Significance of Matt. 24-25 And It's Development Within The NT

Since so many agree (not just Full Preterists) that one’s interpretation of Matthew 24-25 affects how they will see the rest of eschatology played out in the NT a crucial understanding of Jesus’ teaching here is crucial.  Myself and William Bell tackle this alleged “difficult” passage that “scholars have disagreed on” with clarity and sound exegesis all the while demonstrating…

The Living Body Show – Exposing Sam Frost's "Exegesis" of Matt. 16:27-28 & Rev. 5 – Christ "Coming" in AD 30 or AD 66 – 70?

Sam Frost continues to try and convince people that he is some kind of eschatological expert in refuting Full Preterism and yet as this show demonstrates (and articles here on this site) he cannot deal with the basic fundamental Full Preterist exegetical arguments of Matt. 16:27-28 let alone how John Calvin and the Reformed Church understands such passages as Matt.…
