Hebrews 13:15 – From Type To Reality – To Shadows Again! – A Look At Modern Dominionism In Light of Hebrews – #5

Hebrews 13:15 – From TypeTo Reality , To Shadows Again! – A Look At Modern Dominionism In Light of Hebrews In addition to positing the fulfillment of the Zion promises, McDurmon (an advocate of Dominionism) went so far as to say that the resurrection prophecy of 1 Corinthians 15 and Revelation 20 had “a fulfillment” in AD 70.

Then Comes The End – But, What End? #5

In this series, we have been examining the doctrine of “the end” as used by Paul in 1 Corinthians 15, where he said “the end” comes at the resurrection. It is taken for granted by all futurists that Paul had in mind “the end” of the Christian age, or the end of time. This is pure speculation based on a…

A Dominionist Hermeneutic That Leads To Covenant Eschatology!

We often encounter comments and writings by futurists that, when applied consistently, those comments lead inexorably to the full preterist view of eschatology. This is extremely common, especially when one reads the writings of the popular postmillennialists (Dominionists) of the day. Whether one reads Gentry, Mathison, Sandlin, Leithart, McDurmon or DeMar, you will find such comments. I personally hear from…

A Fatally Flawed Hermeneutic – #4

Inconsistent? To say the very least!   See the previous articles in this series  #1 – #2 – #3. The Dominionists condemn the Dispensationalists for arguing that since the…

A Fatally Flawed Hermeneutic – #3

In our first two articles #1 #2 on this issue we have noted how futurists argue with one another and seek to condemn each other by appealing to a fatal hermeneutic. A brief refresher. The Dispensationalists claim that since the word “church” is not found in Revelation 4-22 that these chapters must be dealing with Israel and not the church.…

A Fatally Flawed Hermeneutic- #2

In our first article on this issue, I shared how Amillennialists, Postmillennialists and Dispensationalists all resort to what is commonly called an argument from silence. To illustrate, the Dispensationalists claims that because the word “church” is not found in Revelation 4-22 that the subject cannot be there. In response, Dominionists such as Kenneth Gentry, Gary DeMar and others (seemingly) reject…

A Fatally Flawed Hermeneutic

Hermeneutic is, to make an understatement, the key to proper understanding the Bible, or any piece of literature. If one utilizes a flawed hermeneutic, interpretive system, paradigm, or principle, then his interpretation of Scripture is inherently flawed. To illustrate with a true story, some years ago I encountered a man that claimed that the Spirit had revealed to him that…
