    As know such as even Dr RC Sproul held to a partial view of it!

    I don’t claim to understand it all, but if full preterism means all biblical prophecies have already come true, that seems wrong on its face since the 2nd coming of Christ has clearly not happened.

    peace to you

    I don't believe it right to use the word 'heresy' on a discussion forum. It smacks of racks, thumbscrews and burnings.
    However, to deny the future physical return of Christ (Acts of the Apostles 1:11 etc.) is surely outside of Christian orthodoxy.

    Depends on who you are asking, I suppose. It has been declared so by many, others see it as problematic or neo-theology (perhaps due to its resurgence), and others hold the doctrine.

    What do you think, @Yeshua1 ?

    There are nonBiblical beliefs deemed by a majority to be Christian orthodoxy.

    That may well be true, but it is outside of my control.

    To deny the Second Coming as a future event, and to deny bodily physical resurrection puts one into the camp of heresy in that area of theology!

    And not heretical? I refer to full version, not partial one!

    Doctrines such as infant regeneration and infant baptism for examples?

    That falls into baptismal regeneration. Rather has to do with Christology.

    Such as if eternal subordination occurs, if God is Oneness or Modualism etc?

    Against Preterism,
    2 Timothy 2:16-18, ". . . shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some."

    So do the majority of Christians believe those things?

    depends on the details. To deny the second coming/ second coming has already happened is heresy. Do all Preterists believ this i don't know.

    Christians disagree on subrogation of the Persons who are in the Godhead. The distinct Persons being God there can be no subordination. There is no disagreement In that.
