A Primer on Amillenialism

Check out this post by Kim Riddlebarger. He makes an excellent case for "amillenialsim." Actually, amillenialism is a poor name because it implies that those who hold to the historic doctrine do not believe in Christ's reign. Clearly, this is not true. However, it is a clear departure from what has been the majority view of preachers over the last 50 years or so (premillenial dispensationalism).

Actually, the vast majority of Christians- Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Lutherans and Calvinists- are Amillenialists. It's the only position that doesn't go beyond Scripture and make the text say more than it does on its own terms.
