From Premillenniali...

Nearly two years ago I wrote a post entitled, “Amillennialism: Rethinking and Critiquing my Eschatology After Five Years.” In that post I analyzed an earlier blog post I wrote back in 2007 called, “How I Became An Amillennialist.” Two years ago I concluded that I was...

‘The Telos of ...

I met up with some friends from secondary school last night. I have known all of them for at least 13 years now, some of whom for over 20 years. It was an odd thing to think about time in such a way. Of all of us, I am the only one still studying, the only one without a real job. And I guess,...

Why I don’t Be...

I should admit from the outset that my own convictions concerning end-times events is pretty unformed. That being said, I have become unconvinced that what has become known as “the Rapture” is actually found in the Bible, at least in the way that I was taught growing up. In other...

Sex and Eschatology ...

In August of 2011 I wrote a post entitled, “Sex and Eschatology.” In that post I essentially tried to articulate that sex is a biblical type. It functions typologically as a pointer to the eschatological joy of believers. If you are interested in how I articulated this check out...

The Parable of the J...

Last week I discussed the implications that Jesus’ resurrection has for the animal kingdom. I concluded that the animals that lived on this earth will be in the new earth and will experience a resurrection just like all of mankind. If you are curious as to how I came to these conclusions...

Amillennialism, Two ...

If, therefore, the whole church comes together and all bring their eschatology charts, and outsiders or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are out of your minds? Eschatology is a bizarre thing. I have to confess that I even find some of the discussions to be somewhat kooky, if not...

All Dogs Do Go To He...

The end of Lent is nearly a week away and Easter is quickly approaching.  AND did you know that last week – March 23, 2012 – the world celebrated National Puppy Day?  Now I know what you’re thinking, what does Easter have to do with puppies?  The simple answer: all dogs go to...

Amillennialism, Two ...

A few weeks back, my fellow blogger, John Dunne, posted an article in which he critiqued his Amillenial[1] beliefs. I too am an Amillenialist and became one around the same time as John. I think we both read the same book (A Case for Amillenialism by Kim Riddlebarger) within a few months of...

Amillennialism: Reth...

Back in May 2007 I posted a little blurb on my silly little blog (Dunne’s Discourses) about how I had become an Amillennialist. The main person responsible for my conversion was Pastor Kim Riddlebarger of Christ Reformed Church in Anaheim, CA. His book A Case for Amillennialism is one...

Changing the World

“Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world.” This quote, posted by Mark Zuckerberg in tribute to Steve Jobs on the day of his passing last week, makes a pretty incredible statement: Steve Jobs qualifies to be remembered as a person of such influence, that he can go down...

Sex & Eschatolo...

I remember when I was younger being told that Jesus could come back at any moment.  Instead of erupting in joy at such a statement I would often think that Jesus should wait, perhaps until I have at least been married and had sex first.  Now, I’m fairly confident that I’m not in...
