The Full Preterist view of the “End Times” has caused so much of a challenge to “Christian thought”, that now local Christian leaders across the United States, especially here on Long Island are avoiding having to deal with the details.
The “End Times” of Bible prophecy has been in the media a lot lately, as some Christians have posited the ‘end of the world’ is near, especially regarding the “blood moons” and “the rapture”. As of today, 9/25/2015, we can all say we survived yet again another false end time prediction.
Full Preterism has a lot to say about this, instead of constant false prediction after prediction, the Full Preterist view of Bible prophecy gives evidence that these events are in the past, specifically regarding the events of the Roman-Jewish War of A.D. 64-70.
Pastor Michael Miano, of the Blue Point Bible Church (which is a local church that adheres to the “Full Preterist View”), has continually affirmed and defended that the Biblical “end times” are indeed in the past.
Pastor Miano debated Pastor Bruce Bennett, of the Word of Truth Church, in 2013 regarding the “end times”, a Youtube video of that debate has reached over 11,000 views. You can view that debate by copy & pasting the following link into your browser:
Ironically, Pastor Bruce Bennett is hosting an examination of different views of the “end times” next week, October 2nd-3rd, and did not invite the “Full Preterist” view to be represented. He may claim this is because he does not feel the need to have it represented, however Pastor Miano notes this is because Pastor Bennett knows that Full Preterism cannot be refuted, especially when compared with other confusing “Futurist views” of the “end times”. (Futurism means that the “end times” are in the future, where as “Preterism” asserts the “end times” in the past).
Pastor Bruce Bennett’s dishonest look at the “End Times” will be October 2nd-3rd, 2015 at Word of Truth Church- and on, Sunday, October 4th, Pastor Miano will begin a series explaining the Book of Revelation from a Full Preterist view- the end times completed in the first century, not in our future…and ultimately, what that means for us today- at The Blue Point Bible Church.
Also, a recent broadcast of ‘Iron sharpens Iron’ hosted by Mr. Christopher Arnzen hosted an interview with a supposed “former” Full Preterist, who spoke about a bunch of questions that need to be asked of the “full preterist”, yet Pastor Miano has noted that public engagements are rarely opened up to responses from proponents of Full Preterism.
This is all nothing short of dishonesty.
Pastor Michael Miano has asserted that Full Preterism Has Answers (which is the title of a new Youtube series he is hosting) and has challenged any local pastors on Long Island to show him where he is wrong. He has opened up a public debate setting, at The Blue Point Bible Church, in March of each year to further show that it is the “Futurist view” of Bible prophecy that cannot be held up to Biblical examination, not the “Preterist View”.
Furthermore, Pastor Miano has invited any pastor to debate the “Resurrection of the Dead” in March 2016 (which the opponents keep saying in what proves “Full Preterism” wrong). Will anyone answer the call?
