Does Pre-millennialism cause an outworking of non inclusiveness?Posted: November 7, 2010
I had a discussion last night with a very dear friend who is holds to a Premillennialist point of view and why I am more of a Amillennialist… For my non Christian readers these are fancy terms which denote a particular belief system and interpretation of the Bible about end times.
One of the questions I asked was, “Why is it that those who hold to the Premill position are so motivated to the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple….when Scripture clearly shows that we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit?”
It also appears to me that those who hold a Pre-mill position are less likely to be concerned about the state and welfare of all people in the east and rather focus solely on that of the welfare of the Jewish nation.
If the Gospel clearly calls for a unity, peace and equality between all nations, class and gender…it appears to me that a Pre-mill position by default makes one take a different stance to which the Gospel calls the church to take.
