Futurism and Preterism Debate : David Norris and Larry Smith

Larry Smith
Around 2002 Larry Smith sent an unsolicited book to many ministers in the UPCI and ALJC. In the book Smith sought to challenge normative views of eschatology held by Oneness Apostolics. Norris notes that Smith saw Revelations 6-19 as referring to past events “leading up to and including the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD.” He also suggests this view sees Revelations 20, where John speaks of the binding of Satan, as referring to the present church age. Matthew 24 is also about the destruction of Jerusalem and “nothing more.” The “coming of the Lord” is not about the Lord’s return for believers but for the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD.

David Norris
Some of the topics explored in the debate are What the early church believed?; The “Premillennial Return of Jesus Christ” in Church History; The Olivet Discourse; The Dating of the Book of Revelation and The Church in Prophecy Today.
