    Don’t know much about this movie, nor the director, but if the director is to be Jewish, I would feel much more comfortable if I knew Prager was the director. The movie would probably reflect his conservative morality.

    I’ve seen him at several prophecy conferences. I don’t really like his style, but I do appreciate what he is doing here.

    You raise all kinds of questions. Who are you referring to here? This French fellow who pushes the doctrine that the 2nd coming and resurrection took place in 70AD? That's but a "style" to you? And you appreciate what he is doing here? Sounds like you might be preterist yourself.

    Dennis Prager is a fine conservative, he is also Jewish, not Christian, and if you listen to his talk show very long he is going to make sure you are aware of it. I disagree with his basic premise below:

    Having taught the Torah (the Five Books of Moses) from the Hebrew for more than 40 years...I consider the Biblical flood story one of the world’s most profound moral teachings...it means that God cares about goodness more than anything else.

    The New Tesament, which Prager does not believe in, says Jesus Christ, not the law of Moses, is God's eternal purpose, Christ was predestined from the beginning. It teaches man's goodness through the keeping of the Mosaic law counts for nothing without Christ.

    Jews teach the law given to Judaism at Sinai as if it were the sole revelation of God to man. It is not, Jesus Christ is God's revelation to man also, an even greater revelation. The Mosaic law is but a schoolmaster to lead us to Christ, Gal. 3:24.

    There is not the slightest hint in his writings that he had ever heard of any such thing as Preterism, Amillennialism, or Postmillennialism...reason being it hadn't been invented yet.

    I forgot to include Pretrib Dispensationalism, Irenaeus wouldn't have heard of it either, John Darby invented it some 1700 years later.

    You stay out of a lot of trouble by taking that literal-grammatical approach.

    I don't think the ECF would have called it that. Irenaeus eschatological beliefs, for instance, were taught him by Polycarp, who in turn was taught by the apostle John...who wrote the Revelation. His strong Rev. 20 based belief in a future earthly millennium would thus have come down to him (via Polycarp) from John himself. His futurist post-trib premillennialism, he considered apostolic.

    There is not the slightest hint in his writings that he had ever heard of any such thing as Preterism, Amillennialism, or Postmillennialism...reason being it hadn't been invented yet. This stuff Freneau pushes around here, certainly not.

    I’ve actually tried this numerous times on Bible students who have not every heard of such eschatological doctrines as Dispensational Pretrib, Amillennialist, Preterist, and Postmillennialist. I live in a part of the world where this is a very valid test (before the internet)

    I ask them what they come up with on the tribulation, resurrection, second coming, and millennial. Without fail, they come up with the view known today as “Historic Premillennialism, i.e., all these things have not yet happened, they lie in the future, the 1st resurrection and 2nd coming closes out the great tribulation while ushering in the millennial reign of Jesus Christ on this earth. Which, as you might guess, is also what I believe.

    This is the same view we see in the ECF (Early Church Fathers, Justin, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Hippolytus, etc.).
    Now why, we might ask, would these students come up with this view?

    Because that’s the way Matt. 24, Thess. 1 & 2, and the Revelation naturally reads!

    These other doctrines are pure theory read into the word of God. Concocted in the mind of man...a form of humanism. They are not there. Some, especially the Preterists, are the worst at twisting the scripture to make them fit their preconceived theory. Such doctrines had not been invented yet in the time of the ECF.

    It’s really pretty simple, if you believe you are in the millennial of Rev. 20 now, a spiritualized thousand years, then you are an amillennialist.

    If you believe the world is getting better and better (not worse and worse), more and more Christian every day (not more anti-Christian(, you are not in the millennial yet, it will be realized when Christianity has Christianized the world, at the end of which (thousand years) the 2nd coming takes place, then you are a Post-millennialist.

    You can’t be both, either

    you are in the millennial now...

    or you are not in it yet, at the end of which the 2nd coming takes place.

    I repost:

    The rule by Christ and his saints on earth after the 2nd coming is presupposed in the Bible. In the book of Daniel, we see it prophesied in such passages as the following:

    Daniel 2 pictures a succession of earthly kingdoms, the last one crushed by a stone from heaven, after which it becomes a great “mountain” (“mountain” is prophetic scripture signifies a kingdom, or world empire) filling the whole earth. The “stone” from heaven crushing the last kingdom, the kingdom of antichrist, is the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ -

    Dan. 2:35, the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

    Daniel 7 also pictures a succession of earthly kingdoms, the last one cast down and repossessed by the saints of the most High. The last earthly kingdom, that of the “beast” or the antichrist, is taken over by the saints.

    Dan. 7:18, But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

    Dan. 7:22, Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

    Dan. 7:27, And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High

    In Rev. 20, that those of the first resurrection are the ones who rule on earth with Christ should be presupposed by Bible believers - such passages as these above from Daniel, for example. It is only those influenced by some variation of philosophic Gnosticism that see otherwise.

    There is lot of hate and discontent stirred up by the under the law sacred namers on the tetragrammaton and how is should be pronounced, yet where is this controversy in the NT? Under the law sacred namers condemn each other to the lowest infernal regions for the slightest deviation from how they claim it should be pronounced: Yahweh, Yahovah, Jehoveh, Yahuah, Yahoo, and so on.

    Yet when we go to our Strong’s Concordance and try to find “Yahweh” or any of these other names in the NT, they are not to be found. What we do find everywhere in hundreds of places is the name “Jesus” (the English transliteration of the Greek “Ieseus”) This tells me that “Jesus” is the name all the focus should be on - as the New Testament or new covenant name of God.

    If the Jewish writers of the NT were under the law sacred namers, we would expect they would have left the tetragrammaton untranslated in the Greek text, so that great emphasis be put on this. But this we do not find. They simply translated the tetragrammaton as the Greek “Kurios,” our English world “Lord.” The Jewish translaters of the Septuagint did likewise several hundred years before this.

    The Jewish writers of the NT certainly knew this tetragrammaton issue, and the Hebrew and Greek on it, better than any of these modern under the law sacred namers.

    On your point 5, everybody - except our befuddled preterists - knows Revelation was written late in the first century. This gives time for the alleged successors of Peter to have been well known in the churches everywhere. Surely such a successor would have been, at the very least hinted at, in the Lord’s letters to the seven churches. No such hint, no mention. If Jesus Christ knows of no such Petrine succession, neither should we. Romanists know more than Jesus Christ?

    5. Not once in the Lord's own letters to the churches (Rev. 2 & 3) is the pope even mentioned, despite the critiques, commendations and censures.

Is he seeking to “conserve” the Christian heritage of America? Absolutely not. He, thus, is no American conservative.

    Maoist China was founded on atheism, there are “conservatives” there who bemoan the Christian meetings now taking place, who seek to “conserve” that country’s original atheism. Seems to me like Sojac should move to China, his kind of atheist conservatism would fit right in.

    But how do you know the "new testament" has the true and authentic interpretation of the messianic prophecies? THIS is what none of you chrstians ever explain.

    We owe the New Testament (NT) revelation to Jews such as the twelve apostles and Paul, what makes you think you know more than the Jews who gave us the NT?

    Moreover, you are not even a Jew, for heavens sakes, you are but a Gentile from Tennessee claiming your are a Jew, you are but a so called "Noahide."

    What makes you think you are the last word on the Jewish written NT, coming on this Christian forum thinking your anti-Christianism is the last word on the NT?

    What makes you think you know more than the Jews who gave us the NT? Who lived two thousand years closer to the Jewish-Christian milieu that gave us the NT, than you?

    Are you that conceited that you actually think yourself superior to these other Jews (the apostles and Paul)?

    Thanks, Daniel, I notice a place name, “Urkish,” not far from Harran on your map. Maybe traceable back to Abraham’s Ur? If so, it doesn’t look like he made that big of a trip from Urkish to Harran.

    Thought provoking post, daniel. Your map, however, for someone who only knows English, is not very helpful. Where on your map are all these cities mentioned, Haran, Ura, Urfa, Ur Kasdim, and the names of cities “corresponding to Abraham’s relatives: Peleg, Serug, Nahor, and Terah?” All of which are supposed to be nearby to Haran.

  • Jesus Would Not Support Modern Day Socialism

    In reading through this thread, when I came to your posts it came to mind, “this guy is probably an atheist.” It took Ansell to wring it out of you, good for him.

    No wonder your hero is Ayn Rand the atheist.

    I think it sneaky of you, as an atheist, coming on this thread about whether Jesus would support socialism. This is a Conservative Christian site opposed to socialism, you know. Jim Robinson, the owner of this site is neither an atheist or a socialist.
