End Times Questions for the Left-Behinders, Part 1

| May 27, 2008

Okay, I admit it — I’ve worded this post for the search engines. Many of you know that I don’t like ANY of the contemporary views of eschatology (end times); they all cheat. The only reason that they appear coherent is that their articulators make certain presuppositional decisions on key ideas and questions and then […]
