More On Don Preston's Butchery Of ????? with the Infinitive

Howard Denham
October 23, 2014

More Greek grammarians on the use of μελλω with the infinitive:

(1)   Alpheus Crosby– “583. III. A future action may be represented more expressly as on the point of accomplishment, or as connected with destiny, necessity, will, purpose, & c., by the verbs μελλω, εθελωor θελω…with the Inf. [infinitive, HDD].” (A Grammar of the Greek Language, Boston, MA:Crosby & Nichols, 1862, p. 366.)

[NOTE: This is stated in his grammar on Classical Greek, wherein μελλω often was attached to the idea of imminence, but even then, as Crosby’s notation implies, such was not its sole meaning or use. Often it merely indicated that the future action was determined by Divine will or some other factor as necessarily having to occur or having been ordained. Markopoulos, as we have shown, has demonstrated that the idea of intention (which he cites as the oldest idea of the term) and also that of imminence receded in the Koine period to be replaced as having a dual modality primarily with the idea of certainty.]

What Is Obvious To Most Is Missed By Hyper-Preterists, Steve Baisden, Don Preston, Scott Klaft, Holger Neubauer, & William Bell

Howard Denham

October 23, 2014

These "gentlemen" are unable to grasp a very simple concept relative to the nature of the scope of a prophecy — i.e. what all is entailed within the fulfillment of the prophecy itself, its range, and specified results. Most everyone else gets it, but so as to lay it more plainly, here is a precisely stated, formally valid syllogism:
Major Premise: If it is the case that it is the case that there is a prophecy in the New Testament that teaches that an action or state entailed in the fulfillment of the prophecy is an ongoing action or state, then it must be the case that the ongoing nature of the action or state is part of that prophecy and its fulfillment.

Scott Klaft's Shameless Attempt To Co-Opt Foy E. Wallace Jr. Into His A.D. 70 Heresy

October 1, 2014
Howard Denham

Scott Klaft posted the follwoing self-serving piece: 

"If we learn anything from the study of church history, it's that it is unsafe to rely on what mere men have taught us, and that those with whom we disagree may try to bully us into holding their traditions, once by the power of State-run religion and the threat of civil punishment. But then God made the Restoration possible by giving us a chance to live in a nation that believed in the freedom of religion.

The Restoration spirit is one that questions, and puts to the test everything our religious forefathers believed and practiced. This goes beyond baptism and the mechanical instrument. Every single time some subject has been found wanting in the church, there has been a fight, and people who try to bully others into holding the long-held tradition.
