Tomorrow morning I’ll be teaching the morning class at church. The subject will be eschatology (yikes!), specifically teaching about the four major views: amillennialism, postmillennialism, historic premillennialism, and dispensational premillennialism. I have my own views and opinions certainly, but the only view I’m going to pick on is going to be the last one–dispensationalism–because it’s inconsistent with Scripture as well as our confession of faith. Indeed, dispensationalism departs from the other three views in that it’s not covenantal.
I pray that I do a good job tomorrow. I hope that I’ll have enough material to cover all of this. Of course I anticipate that there is going to be a lot of discussion on this topic, so I’ll probably play the role of moderator to some extent. And that’s not a bad thing. Even though I take the amillennial position, I’ll do my best to be impartial with respect to the other covenantal views. When it comes to eschatology, I try to be flexible and I’m open to hearing other points of view (so long as they stay within the bounds of orthodoxy).
I’ll bring my digital voice recorder with me, so I’ll probably have this posted on here soon enough. Stay tuned!
