Today, we will examine and article post by Joel McDurmon, and his dominion theology on the new heavens and earth of Isaiah 65:17-25. Joel’s dominionist views are closely akin to premillennial dispensationanlist views of the kingdom of God. He sees physical longevity, physical security in physical houses, abundance of natural food, no fear of invaders or war, no more wild beasts but a eutopian peace and harmony.
He surmises this is the new garden we are to dress and keep, that our children wil not face calamity and he claims all of this for those who are the “offspring” of the Lord. Does he follow through on his literalism. Will the Lord Jesus Christ be physically fathering all these babies he sees in his new heaven and earth paradigm? He can’t jumpt to spiritual birth after claiming all of this is physical can he?
He argues that will be a “multi-generational family”? How is that possible if the Lord begets all of them? Why do they even need to be multi-generational?
These are only a few of the problems of McDurmon’s view. We’ll highlight more of them in the broadcast. Join us today.
