Eschatology is the doctrine of future things. It includes such things as:
Inaugurated eschatology- Second Coming- Millennial kingdom- Rapture- Heaven- Hell- Final judgment- Resurrection- Glorification
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.
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.
