1. THE 'MILLENNIUM'

"Christian Faith" does not take a set position on the millennium. Therefore, we will direct you to responsible representatives for you to think about these various issues.

Check out THEOPEDIA for a comparison of the various views.

 

AMILLENNIALISM

Kim Riddlebarger is a very competent exponent of Amillennialism. Riddlebarger's mp3 sermons/talks are well worth listening to for a clear defence of his position. He used to be premillenial in his views.

Israel and the Last Days: What Does the Bible Say (mp3 and pdf) by Dr. Kim Riddlebarger. (Senior pastor of Christ Reformed Church in Anaheim, California, and co-host of the popular White Horse Inn radio program).

Sam Storms has written an article: Problems with Premillennialism

David L. White shares 'My Shift to Covenant Theology and Amillennialism'.
