Announcing an Up Coming Formal Debate On YouTube !
I am thrilled to announce that we have confirmation for a formal YouTube debate between myself and my friend Himie Pickett. This will be a two hour formal debate, carried live on YouTube– perhaps also on Google Hangout.
In addition to this debate, Himie Pickett has graciously invited me to speak at a symposium in Washington DC, in March of 2017. I am very excited about both of these events!
My proposition for the debate will be:
Resolved: The Bible teaches that the salvation of Israel at the coming of the Lord – as foretold in Romans 11:25-27 was fulfilled at the time of the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70.
Don K. Preston Affirms
Himie Pickett Denies
Himie Pickett will affirm the following proposition:
Resolved: The Bible teaches that at the Second Coming of Christ, as foretold in Romans 11:25-27 – God will rapture the church, and He will place His emphasis back on ethnic Israel.
Affirm: Himie Pickett
Deny: Don K. Preston
Note: Himie Picket is a Progressive Dispensationalist, not a traditional Dispensationalist. He does believe in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the church, the rapture of the church, and a literal millennium, but, there are some important nuances to Progressive Dispensationalism that set it apart.
This promises to be an excellent, lively, cordial discussion so you don’t want to miss it! Projected date is for the first week in November of this year (2016), tentatively set at this time for a Thursday. We will be sure to post the specific times later.
