5 Key Errors of Preterism

Church in fogA glance at the title of this article may cause you to wonder why I am writing about such a topic. Isn’t this just inflaming disagreement on something that doesn’t matter? Am I not just stirring up divisions?

Before I answer these questions, let me share with you the basics of what preterists believe. They teach that all biblical prophecy has been fulfilled; this includes Matthew 24 as well as the entire book of Revelation. They claim all these things happened before and during AD 70 when Titus and the Romans destroyed Jerusalem. They believe Jesus returned as the city fell thus fulfilling His promise to return to the earth.

Despite the fact that these teachings seem far out of the mainstream, this view of fulfilled prophecy continues to grow rapidly in popularity. Raptureless, a book by Jonathan Welton promoting the teachings of the preterists, remains a bestseller in its third printing.

So why am I writing about preterism? It’s my passion to warn believers about false teachings related to future things as well as to draw the attention of the saints to Jesus’ appearing. Because I see preterism as a serious threat, I want to describe what I believe are 5 key errors of this flawed teaching.

1. Preterism Diminishes the Glory of Jesus

In Matthew 24:29-31, Jesus describes His glorious return at which time everyone on earth will mourn as they see “the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” We see this magnificent display of dazzling supremacy recounted again in Revelation 19:11-20:6.
