Quote:To Chafer DTS: Walvoord is totally different from Camping, who says don't go to church.So, Camping might not be the best representative of Amillenialism.
That debate took place in 1980. That was before Camping went in to his date setting and other errors relating to not go to Church . But at the time of that debate he had with Dr. John Walvoord , Mr Camping did present the standard Amillennial position in it. Other Amillennial scholars were requested to debate Dr. John Walvoord but turned it down. But Dr. John Walvoord in his books did interact with top Amillennial scholars such as Dr. B.B. Warfield [ Warfield's position combines elements of Amillennialism and Postmillennialism ] , Arthur Pink, Albertus Pieters, Dr. Oswald Allis , Dr. Louis Berkhof and many others in his book The Millennial Kingdom. He dealt with their specific arguments againist the dispensational & premillennial position.
Quote:The term "pet theory" is unscholarly prejorative language. I have chosen not to turn it back on you.
I used that term because I believe that Amillennialism in it's 3 variations are utterly false based on an honest reading of Scripture. I base this on my own personal study of their writings found in their systematic theology sets and commentaries on Scripture.
