Although preterist believers and futurist believers disagree on a lot of things and unfortunately it can get heated at times.
But we agree on a lot of things and have a lot in common:-
- We believe in One God the Father who created all things and loves us.
- We believe that we need salvation from our sins
- We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who did not sin
- We believe that Jesus died for our sins
- We believe that Jesus was buried and was raised on the third day
- We have a common hope that when all believers die, we will be with the Lord Jesus Christ
- We believe in loving one another
- We believe that salvation is only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from works
- We believe that universalism is a false message
- We believe that Israel-only is a false message
- We only disagree on the timing/nature of the 2nd coming but we actually both believe that Jesus has a 2nd coming.
- We believe in the resurrection of the believer and judgment of the unbeliever.
- So you see, we have so much in common!
