Interview With The Orange Mailman

In this 53-minute podcast, Brian Simmons interviews Darrin (The Orange Mailman) on Preterism, the Great Tribulation, and the endtimes. Various topics are discussed including the applicability of the Olivet Discourse to A.D. 70, the literal fulfillment of prophecy, and the futuricity of events surrounding Jesus Christ’s second advent.

“The Time Is Short”

   One of the many “timing texts” which Preterists employ is Paul’s statement in 1 Corinthians 7: 29 that “the time is short.” Preterists apparently believe that this points to the destruction of Jerusalem. But as with other timing texts, this is one is wrenched completely from its chronological and historical bearings, and placed in a…

Luke 21: 22 Not a Hyper-Preterist Proof-Text

   Another one of the common proof-texts used by Hyper-Preterists in support of their view that Jesus Christ “returned” in A.D. 70, is Luke 21: 22. Speaking of the siege of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, Jesus says, “For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.” This verse…

The Unbelief of Preterism

    As a follow-up to my article, The Infidelity of Preterism, I thought it well to further explore the kind of rationalism and unbelief on which Preterist theology bases its claims. While systematic Preterism has little historical support, there are a number of writings documented throughout church history that contain key concepts espoused by Preterism….

   During the past few decades, there has been a significant increase of Preterism among liberal academic circles. While the majority within the Christian church have repudiated the notion that “all things were fulfilled in A.D. 70,” the intellectuals have insisted that they know not the truth; and therefore, a widescale push has been launched…

Preterist Scholar Inadvertently Supports the Pre-Mil View of Daniel’s 70 Weeks

  Here is a very interesting quote from “Modern Preterist” Samuel Lee (1783-1852), which shows that Preterists have not always historically held the view which places Christ’s crucifixion in the midst of Daniel’s 70th week.  Lee assures the reader that the “cutting off” of the Messiah occurred at the end of the sixty-ninth week.  But his interpretation places…

The Orange Mailman- Me? A Preterist? No, No, No.

Me? A Preterist? No, No, No. After my posts on Preterism a while back, I had some mixed reactions.  My posts were aimed at proving that the Futurist position is the superior one.  In a nutshell, I was striving to show that the things that were fulfilled in 70 A.D. were a literal fulfillment of…
