Which view of the bible is more comforting for someone in pain, suffering a loss or needing comfort for some reason. If you didn’t know the difference between a preterist view and a futurists view of the bible and were starting fresh which view of the bible would be more comforting—Preterism. In a futurists view you have to change the meaning of works like “coming soon” and “this generation” to mean things that are uncommon, not used anywhere else, and if you don’t know the futurists code to understand these words it makes no sense whatsoever. On the other hand in the preterist’s view you can use the normal everyday meaning of the words just as you would anywhere else and you understand their meaning. Further if you needed comfort and wanted to feel like you could put your trust in what the bible says which is more comforting to see Christ promise to come back soon and still be waiting 2,000 later or realize he came back in 70 AD and kept his promise to come back soon. A promise made and a promise kept is far more reassuring than a promise with no fulfillment. Preterism is a far more understandable and comforting view of the bible than futurism to someone who needs comfort, reassurance, and something concrete to hold on to in times of stress.
