Preterism & The Problem Of Evil

Man needs to be saved not only from SIN, but from his SINS. This will require a change in his very nature. It is through Christ’s work on the cross alone that this salvation is effected. Although “salvation” is an all-inclusive word that embraces every redemptive process from regeneration to eventual glorification, the end result…

The Bar-Cocheba Incident

Preterists generally don’t like hearing anything about Simon Bar Cocheba, the Jewish revolter who took back the city of the Jerusalem circa 132 A.D. before being finally crushed by the Romans.
