I'm a born-again Christian, active member of the body of Christ, husband and father, and Bible teacher. I love to study Scripture, and firmly believe it is the only credible standard for truth.

Aside from my devotion to God, His people, and His word, I don't really have any loyalty to a particular doctrine or creed.

You've got me curious now... which hermeneutics class are you in, if you don't mind me asking? If you don't want to say which school specifically, could you tell me whether it's undergrad or graduate, and what branch of the church it is associated with?

comment Concealing & revealing in Proverbs 25:2
Hi Paul, thanks for the answer and welcome to the site. My concern with this answer is that it primarily reasons from New Testament passages without demonstrating that they are on the same topic as the proverb. I'm also still not clear why the proverb would specify "kings" in this view. Why not "the glory of men is to search out a matter"?

comment Was Elijah REALLY taken to Heaven?
Great question. Some factors to explore: (A) Does "ascended" have the idea of "returned" here? (B) Does "ει μαι" mean "if not" ("unless") here? (C) Does 2 Chronicles refer to the same "Elijah"? (D) Did 2 Chronicles 21 definitely take place after Elijah's death? (E) There is another NT passage that suggests Elijah was "transferred"; does the Hebrew actually mean that he "ascended" in the way Jesus did? ...anyway, I haven't studied this particular question in depth (yet), but these are some of the things I would look at before drawing conclusions.

This isn't a complete answer, but hopefully it is helpful in pointing you in the right direction.

You don't have to entertain the Mormon doctrine of people living on the sun in order to explain their teaching on it. Same with Preterism. I agree it's a flawed system, but I still think this question is interesting -- and useful. Maherlalhashbaz came before Christ, Antiochus Epiphanes before Antichrist, etc. Preterists tend to be good at the "local fulfillment".

comment Does Isaiah 11:3 involve smelling?
I think your answer is based on a strawman. The idea of "smelling" does not come from Christian theology, it comes from reading the Hebrew. "Delight" is an odd rendition of the word, but both Christians and non agree it fits better. That is why the Christian translations read that way. The question is how people (Christian and non) get "delight" from the Hebrew word for "smelling".

comment Does Isaiah 11:3 involve smelling?
You have said quite a bit about why you think Christians are wrong to take this as a prophecy about Jesus, but I don't see an answer to the actual question. What Hebrew word is used there, and what is the correct understanding of its usage? -1 for now.

I don't disagree, but that comment would be a more relevant answer than what you posted. Just wanted to explain my down vote so you weren't wondering.

comment Is “revile the gods” (KJV) an accurate translation in Exo. 22:28?
@JimThio is that your down vote? (If this info wasn't useful to you I'll delete the answer; I might have misunderstood what you were looking for.)

This does not answer the actual question. It's just a teaching on your perspective on the verse... The OP specifically asked about how Preterists would explain it.
