View Full Version : Jesuit Futurism
09-02-2007, 02:21 PM
While surfing, found a term I had not heard before: Jesuit Futurism.
The basic idea?? The rapture idea was basically a takeoff from a Jesuit idea launched to counter the reformation. For those interested in looking, the author was a jesuit named Ribera.
* Preterism and futurism, as shown by many examples in the writings of the Church Fathers, were not>invented by 16th century Jesuits in an attempt to smokescreen 1260 year historicism.
* The 1260 year /day principle, upon which the anti-Catholic (and Adventist) view rests, was not proposed until the 12th century be Joachim of Flora.
* Even John Calvin himself exhibits some preterist thoughts in his commentaries on Daniel.
A challenge would be nice someday.

This site shows some interesting history, if true, about this "futurism" being the basis of the Bretheren belief in the rapture, the route of which would probably horrify most of them!!

Coming from the guy who Aydelooof has to follow around in here to clean up his messes and attempt damage control for your pathetic attempts at apologetics.
