Sam Storms Quote

imagesMy point, then, is that sound hermeneutical procedure would appear to demand that we interpret the singular and obscure in the light of the plural and explicit. To make the rest of the New Testament (not to mention the Old Testament) bend to the standard of one test in the most controversial, symbolic, and by scholarly consensus most difficult book in the bible, is hardly commendable hereneutical method. The first reason, therefore, for my theological shift to amillennialism is that I can in good conscience no longer allow the apocalyptic tail to wag the epistolary dog. I must not force the whole of Scripture to dance to the tune of Revelation 20. (Kingdom Come Page 143)
