Jerry McDonald says Preston is like Hymenaeaus “those who say the resurrection is past.”
Clearly, Jerry has given little or no thought to his objection!
If the resurrection is what Jerry says, an earth burning, time ending, cosmos destroying event, how could anyone, convince anyone that it had already happened, Jerry?
That would be impossible! All anyone would have to do is say “Look around!” The graveyards are still full!”
This is not how Paul refuted Hymenaeaus, however.
Fact: Daniel said the resurrection would be “when the power of the holy people is completely shattered.”
Jerry has not touched this indisputable fact, top, side or bottom!
Israel’s last days had not ended; her power had not been shattered when Paul wrote!
Of course it was wrong to say it had already happened– before it had happened!
f it was wrong to say it had already happened– before the fact– Is it proper to deny that it has happened when the divinely appointed time for its accomplishment has come and gone?
Scripture: The resurrection would be “when the power of the holy people is completely shattered.”
Jerry McDonald– I deny that the resurrection occurred “when the power of the holy people was completely shattered.”
Jerry explicitly rejects the divinely appointed time of the resurrection
