Does anyone here have advice on the best and simplest way to correct someone who holds to an Amillennial or preterist view?
My daughter is dating a gentleman who comes from a Baptist background, used to believe pre-trib but has come to the conclusion that The Tribulation has already occured. I'm still trying to get out of him what he actually believes because so far it sounds like a mixed bag of theology. In our short conversations so far, he seems to hold to a form of replacement theology or the Church is spiritual Israel. My first step after prayer has been to listen to him and try to answer questions the best I can. Although I've personally come to the conclusion that R/T is wrong, trying to show others the error is more difficult.
He seems to be well versed, studies scripture daily but so far is having trouble understanding that the Church and Israel are not the same. I believe he is a saved, born again believer but his theology concerns me. My daughter who has only been saved a few years holds to a dispensational pre-trib view but she has been challenged with defending the stance with someone who is well versed but incorrect imo. She has asked for our help and he was eager to speak with me about doctrine so I'm looking for advice from brothers and sisters who have dealt with simular situations.
Where is the best place to start from? My first thought is to start with The Cross and salvation to make sure he has a firm grasp on that (I think he does) but his view on water baptism concerned me a little. What would be the next best place to show that Amillennialism is incorrect?
