I see the first installment of what will be a lengthy refutation of the dangerous theological position known as Full or Hyper Preterism has been the subject of much discussion over at SGP. Speculation and assumptions are running rampant over there in SGP land. I think now would be a good time to wake up some of SGP’s chest thumpers prior to continuing this series.
I just LOVED this statement from leader Mr. Sam Frost; (source)
NOW, that’s the article. And, no, Phil, I won’t “come there” and “try.” I don’t write on websites that have a double standard when it comes to publically humiliating people, sorry. I don’t recommend anyone else going to that site, either. Now, watch the numbers plummet. Preterist roadkill always brings an audience, but once its cleaned up no one has a real reason to stand around..unless they want to be bored to death with theology today. Okay….anyone care to list the massive errors in this piece?
I have to wonder if Sam laughed out loud when he wrote that? I know I did. Considering the subsequent comments were nothing but childish attempts at public humiliation I have this question for Mr. Frost:
Why do you write on a website that has a double standard when it comes to publicly humiliating people?
The “preterist road kill” is starting to reek of hypocrisy. I think Sam is correct. It’s time to clean up the mess and he should begin in his own backyard don’t you think?
Sam’s assumption that when (if) those within the community stop visiting Theology Today “numbers would plummet” appears to be quite arrogant don’t you think? I’m really not that interested in numbers but from the increase in emails I would have to say Mr. Frost has made a terribly wrong assumption.
Of the 39 comments (thus far) on this posting this one struck me as odd and very telling;
I agree with Eric most:). But I pray for them as well. Fruitless yet theologically sound lives give God no glory or pleasure and are ultimately without purpose.
“Fruitless” is an assumption on the commenters part. Just how would this individual know about the fruits of Theology Today? This arrogant rascal doesn’t know a THING about this site other then what he’s read regarding Hyper Preterism and I can assure him there is far more on this site then eschatology. FAR MORE.
While we’re on the subject of “fruit” care to explain why an UNREPENTENT Michael Bennett is still allowed to post articles on a supposedly “Christian” website? I’m reminded of what Paul told the Corinthians;
1Corinthians 15:33-34 NKJV
Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.”Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.
I’m surprised the folks over at SGP missed that as it comes right before the eschatology stuff they deem so important. Putting milk before the meat seems to be status quo around those parts. Looks like Roderick Edwards was right again. Bad character DOES affect ones theology.
I’m starting to think continuing this series would be against what Jesus taught;
Matthew 7:6 NKJV
“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.
Someone want to convince me that we should?
