Douglas Wilson on Postmillennialism

heaven-misplaced-christs-kingdom-on-earth-douglas-wilson-paperback-cover-artWhile I have my disagreements with both Douglas Wilson and the Postmillennial eschatological position, I still found this blog post by Wilson very interesting. Wilson shares with his readers how he came to embrace the postmillennial eschatological position. It’s very interesting how he links together the various people and theologies that had influenced him to embrace his “optmillennial” understanding of scripture. He does make the point at the end of the post that all eschatological positions can be both optimistic or pessimistic. The label of prophetic pessimism has been used in the past by many postmillennialist as a sort of caricature of other millennial positions. I appreciate Wilson’s honesty on this one. Enjoy!
