You gotta feel sorry for this movement. It started as an attempt to rescue Christ from the liberals. You see, the liberals stated that Christ was wrong, since he predicted his own return within a generation. Along come the preterists to save Jesus for the liberals. They say that he actually did come. Um, nevermind that none of the events happened, but he still did come. Snicker snicker. Preterism must destroy the rest of the NT to save Jesus from liberals. For example, preterists deny a bodily resurrection of believers. Just get ole grasshopper over here. Consider what Paul said though in Philippians 3: 8 More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, 9 and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; 11 in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead Paul was already saved when he wrote this. He wasn't talking about being saved here. He was talking about sharing in Christ's resurrection when his own body would be raised again. A little help grasshopper. Why don't you explain this away like you do everything else?
