    Since we are already talking about this issue, I thought we would do a poll to see where everyone on PB stands on this issue.

    Post Mil and Amil are close depending on whether or not you are an optimistic Amil or not and whether or not you hold to a literal 1000 year reign or not from the Post Mil position.

    I believe that only the faithful baptist churches get raptured and then a 7yr tribulation for non baptist churches and non believers and then for a 1000 years Jesus will be in Jerusalem finally as King.

    ....

    Yes folks, that is actually a belief, though of course I don't believe that, Post-Mill-Powers-Activate

    Responding to Richard's suggestion on a similar thread that Amills are Postmills that lost their nerve, I say Amills are realistic Postmills. ;)

    Yes, the Lord is gathering His Church, but the world still lies in the power of the evil one 1 John 5:19, and only when Christ returns then definitely things will really get better!

    Not to mention that the Premills may be Historical - more likely the ones here on the PB - or Dispensational Premills.

    On another thread there were also the Pan-Mills, the Saw-mills, the Other-Mills, etc....

    I moved from Pretrib Premil => Prewrath Premil => Historic Premil => Amil. After being frustrated with doing my best to justify a Premil understanding I set aside the study of eschatology altogether. About a year latter while discussing the Premil coming of Christ with someone I realized the position just didn't make all that much sense.

    Amil. Premil for most of my life; Amil last several years. Sortof when I became a man, I put away . . . Oh, never mind!

    Nevertheless, it must be admitted that Premils (at least of the dispensational kind) have all the cool charts, graphics, novels, stacks of totally certain books, exacting calendars, and scary movies. What do Amils have . . . nerdy seminary professors with European family names and a lot of "I don't knows." Man, what a ripoff.

    :lol:

    I have previously said to my Premill brethren that the only advantage I can see of the Premill view is that it gives the church another 1000 years to baptise all the Paedobaptists before we all enter heaven. :lol: :lol:

    You mean that it will give the credos 1000 yrs. to repent of denying the covenant sign to their children before we all enter heaven. ;)

    It's helpful to divide premillennialism into:

    1) classical premillennialism
    2) modern dispensational premillennialism

    Wow! Only 2 premillennial people on the whole board after two days of this thread being open!

    If I had known that I would have never posted a thread asking for premillennial resources. I apologize. I didn't know ya'll were so anti premill. I certainly wasn't trying to start a stink. I honestly thought there were a lot of premil people here as well as the other views.

    This is obviously not a forum for me to discuss eschatology in so I will refrain from that forever more on the PB and stick to things we have in common. I am interested in eschatology so I will discuss it in other places with premillennial people so I can grow in that area though.

    I don't mind discussing and debating, in fact I enjoy it. You just have to keep in mind that most people are going to disagree with you about eschatology on the PB.
     
  28. Osage Bluestem

    Osage Bluestem Puritan Board Junior

    Thanks. I understand. However, I'm not really in a position to really debate eschatology as I haven't spent as much time in it as I should, so in that thread I was actually just looking for older and wiser premils to give me some resources.

    I think debate is great and healty for christians as long as it is understood to be constructive and not combative.

    No stink is taken, it is a touchy subject sometimes.

    A good question would be how many former pre-mills are now amill.
     
  30. Bill The Baptist

    Bill The Baptist Puritan Board Senior

    Let's face it, Dispensationalism has ruined the premillennial view. Many people may still lean towards a premill understanding, but they are so embarrased by the Dispy crowd that they have moved to amillenialism out of pure shame. ;)
