Major Radio / Internet Debate Coming Up!
The Hosts of Covenant Radio, Jeffrey McCormack and William F. Hill, are glad to announce a major upcoming major radio / Internet debate. The discussion will be between Brian Schwertley, Pastor, Westminster Presbyterian Church of Waupaca County, WI. (Westminster Presbyterian Church in the United States), and Don K. Preston, President, Preterist Research Institute (www.eschatology.org).
The date for the discussion is September 25, at 7 PM. You can listen to the debate live at www.CovenantRadio.com
Mr. Schwertly is a partial preterist, but futurist, lecturer and author. He has written at least 10 books and several smaller works, in addition to numerous articles. His website is: http://www.reformedonline.com/view/reformedonline/s36p93.htm.
Mr. Schwertly has also written against Covenant Eschatology, and is quite out-spoken in opposition to this view, calling it hyper-preterism, "a lie of the devil", "doctrinally perverse", and a host of other less than complimentary terms. Mr. Schwertly is on record as promising that there will be "fireworks" in this discussion, since, in his view, Don K. Preston "got away with" far too much in his debate with Greg Strawbridge. That debate was also hosted by Covenant Radio, and MP3s are available from Don K. Preston (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are not aware of any radio debates or formal debates that Mr. Schwertley has engaged in.
Don K. Preston is also an author, having written 15 books on eschatology, including a brand new book, He Came As A Thief. Mr. Preston is president of Preterist Research Institute, a non profit organization dedicated to the promotion of Covenant Eschatology. His website is www.eschatology.org. Mr. Preston conducts seminars around the world, and engages in numerous debates, on radio, the Internet, and in formal settings.
The proposition that will be discussed in this discussion is:
Resolved: The Bible teaches that the resurrection of the dead– the physical raising of the glorified physical bodies of all of the dead who have ever lived– is yet future, and will occur at the end of the current Christian Age.
