Pastor Michael Miano who is pastor of The Blue Point Bible Church and holds to a view of “FULFILLED ESCHATOLOGY” (otherwise known as FULL PRETERISM) and he is looking to debate a ‘Christian leader” who serves in the pastorate or is an apologist and whom holds to the “FUTURIST VIEW” (that is, that the end times described in Scripture are still in the future).
The date is set for March 19th, 2016- at the annual “Bible Conference” held by the Blue Point Bible Church (www.bluepointbiblechurch.org). The conference has a host of speakers, video presentations, interactive debates and more set to happen March 18-20, 2016.
The proposed format for the debate is as follows:
Both ‘debaters’ will choose an AFFIRMATIVE & a NEGATIVE. The options are:
AFFIRM that we are living in the ‘end times’ described in the Bible. 20
AFFIRM that the ‘end times’ described in the Bible are in the past. 20
NEGATE that the FUTURIST VIEW enables the ‘Body of Christ’ to “walk worthy” in these times. 20
NEGATE that the PRETERIST VIEW enables the ‘Body of Christ’ to “walk worthy” in these times. 20
There will also be a 20 minute time of CROSS-EXAMINATION, followed by 20 minutes of Q&A from the audience.
Each ‘debater’ will have 5 minutes to make CLOSING REMARKS.
CROSS-EXAMINATION 10 MINUTES EACH
The concept of this year’s ‘Bible Conference’ is “Walking Worthy of What We Now Know” which goes along with the B.P.B.C. 2016 – “BPBC: Conversations & Environments That Bear Fruit for God”.
Pastor Miano has been clear regarding his view that “The ‘CHRISTIAN’ who understands Bible prophecy to be fulfilled in the ‘FUTURE’ & the ‘CHRISTIAN who understands Bible prophecy to be fulfilled in the ‘PAST’ have different solutions to the world’s issues. One view is very wrong and is detrimental to the Christian faith.” He has also noted that while the ‘Historic Church’ has held to a “yet future” end times and accomoplished much for the glory of God, it’s way past time that Christians “walk worthy” of the ‘fulfilled worldview’ that is offered through a proper contextual view of Scripture. Besides the fact, it’s just an honest handling of the Word of God.
Preterism, it’s about time.
As mentioned at the beginning of this ‘press release’, a ‘debater’ who is a ‘Christian leader” who serves in the pastorate or is an apologist and whom holds to the “FUTURIST VIEW” (that is, that the end times described in Scripture are still in the future) is still being sought out to participate in this event.
