« Effective leadership: not something you'll hear on TED | Main | Twilight, hermeneutical »


I was fed this stuff in an Evangelical boarding school in the 60s, and I never thought it was a plausible reading of scripture. But they managed to get some blinders on me, and convinced me that "amillenial" means "Jesus isn't really coming again," and I didn't believe THAT.
Mid-70s, I discovered that vast swaths of the Protestant world don't even believe it.
Rule of Thumb: If you can't find anyone who believed doctrine X before the Second Great Awakening, doctrine X is, er, baloney.

Excellent, Father. Right to the point.
