Biblical Challenges for Premillennialists by Sam Storms

I too once embraced premillennialisms, bot historic and dispensational.  And I too like Sam Storms renounced premillennialisms.  In my eschatological journey, I didn’t get the chance to read Storms until sometime later.  But when I read him, I was pleased to discover that we shared some of the same conclusions and concerns.  Below, according to Storms, are several things with which premillennialists must reckon:

  • You must necessarily believe that physical death will continue to exist beyond the time of Christ’s second coming.
  • You must necessarily believe that the natural creation will continue, beyond the time of Christ’s second coming, to be subjected to the curse imposed by the Fall of man.
  • You must necessarily believe that the New Heavens and New Earth will not be introduced until 1,000 years subsequent to the return of Christ.
  • You must necessarily believe that unbelieving men and women will still have the opportunity to come to saving faith in Christ for at least 1,000 years subsequent to his return.
  • You must necessarily believe that unbelievers will not be finally resurrected until at least 1,000 years subsequent to the return of Christ.
  • You must necessarily believe that unbelievers will not be finally judged and cast into eternal punishment until at least 1,000 years subsequent to the return of Christ.

You may read more of what Sam Storms has to say here.  It’s a good read, whether you are an Amillennialist or not.

But of course, these matters will not be resolved this side of heaven, so let’s be patient and kind in our dialogues.

    I am interested in reading this book. I am still a dispensationalist…leaning towards the progressive side of things.
