Lots of twists and a major loss of consistency, which is what usually happens after 3 or 4 pages on a thread. It gets too demanding to follow as one wades through. In addition what you have is 1 or a couple of posters that dominate (nothing wrong with that, just saying) the conversation but they take on 2 or 3 other posters and it´s 1 guy arguing with 3 or 4 other guys over 2 or 3 other rabbit trails and the entirety continuity of the thread falls apart.
7 pages ago I asked you Mike where does the JCOC fit. You sort of played the importance of that down as if it really doesn´t matter.
But i does. It matters so much that I have yet to receive an answer form any pre wrath, post trib position to date.
You can´t place it in your scheme as it will demonstrate the fallacy of your position.
So, I still would like an answer.
Or at least encourage you to try to find it for yourself. If you did and do, you will dump the untenable potion you hold.
When does the JCOC occur?
In addition, I have not questioned your Christianity or salvation and neither has any one else here. You suggested that we question your IFB status, your faith etc. None of which is true.
In fact I mad eit a point to say that I don´t question your integrity or character as I do not know you personally and that is and never has been an issue.
I do wonder however why you seek to moderate a board that you are not in agreement with? Pre trib is the stated doctrinal position of this board. I also question why Matt has not weighed in on this obvious conflict of interest.
Pre trib, pre wrath, post trib are by no means tests of fellowship, or a true test of one´s relationship with the Lord.
As a missionary I plant churches, then as they grow, mature and become autonomous I seek God´s will for a replacement of myself to lead the flock. Mike, I don´t care how faithful you might have been to the Lord, how active in the work and what a grand testimony you might have before the brethren. I would not however consider you as a candidate to any church that I have personally planted. How could I? What would that convey to the church I have pastored for x amount of years? Would that not necessarily be a major contradiction of myself before the flock?
Your position by my way of understanding is dead wrong, you haven´t been able to prove anything other than the fact that your ability to distinguish between the church, the Jew and the gentile is faulty. That seems to me to be the major failing of all Rosenthal induced positions, (Yes,... he is the gran daddy of your eschatology boy and girls).
Any one who confuses Matthew 24 with 1 Thess is not a very thorough Bible student.,
