Yesterday at 01:43 AM Jonathan Edwards Question by Tom
I have been doing a bit of study on eschatology, especially where it comes to the views of Reformed theologians such as Jonathan Edwards. It is no secret that Jonathan Edwards was Postmil in his eschatology. He actually wrote only one commentary on the Bible and that was on the book of Revelation.
I was researching this subject and came across an old thread on the subject and was attracted to something J_Edwards said, which can be found at:

Newton, Sir Issac: The Prophecies of Daniel & the Aopcalypse. 1733.
Torrey, R. A. The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge: Old Tappan, NJ.: Fleming H. Revell (Historical premillennialist)
Spurgeon, C H is classified as a Historicist: Keep this in mind when reading his sermons on the Revelation
Wesley, John.
Whitefield, George

I was sharing this with a good friend of mine and this is the answer at got back.

How could Edwards be both a Historicist and Postmillennial?

Seeing this is not my area of specialty, I thought I would put out his question to the board.

Please note, I have done a little additional research and many of the sites I have gone through, have people like Edwards and Spurgeon as either Preterists, or Partial Preterists.

Yesterday at 12:13 AM Should a Muslim be able to hold office? by Tom
Here is a question I am struggling with.
I am hearing a lot of Christians saying that in the USA no Muslim should be allowed to hold political office.
Yet, is this in keeping with the constitution of the United States?

In case you don't know, there is a movement in the USA that believes Christians should not be allowed to hold office. I believe Senator Bernie Sanders would support the later.


What do you think about this issue?

Sun Jun 25, 2017 1:05 PM Levirate Marriage by Johan
Can anyone perhaps help me with what the meaning of the levirate marriage was (Deuteronomy 25:5 - 10). I've read somewhere that it was an ancient Middle-Eastern custom but then why was it taken up in Scripture?

Wed Jun 21, 2017 4:21 PM Peter Enns by AJ Castellitto
My pastor Lane Tipton was talking about how Enns, who I had never heard of, almost took down Westminster....he also talked about the danger of Seminaries in a broader general sense .... In the desire of many to make them appeal to potential candidates. And the danger of compromising the true mission ...... Any thoughts?

Wed Jun 21, 2017 4:08 PM Noteriety, Purity and In Between by AJ Castellitto
I noticed in Reformed history preachers and theologians garnered lots of noteriety....it is the same today but with that comes extra scrutiny, purity tests and the need to stay on the straight narrow..... Looking at guys like Beeke and Piper, along with Keller, etc. there comes a time where they may somehow intersect with less faithful movements..... Can we separate guilt by association from getting the word out to the heretical sects..... I know even Washer has preached to some tough crowds risking a non invite in the future.... Any thoughts, I'm kinda thinking out loud here..... I do see pca is in some big trouble, so all pastors and denominations must remain on guard
