Are you dogmatic that your views on end times Biblical prophecy is the right view, and all other views are wrong, or are you open to the possibility that nobody(including yourself) has it 100% nailed?
I would say no to the first statement. I don't think anyone has it ALL correct, except God.
I would agree to the last statement. I don't think any one person, or group, for that matter, has it 100% correct. God does, though. I believe He has given us all the correct answers, but being the fallen individuals that we are, we get it wrong sometimes...
In your opinion, does the Bible support a dogmatic view on end times prophesy? Does somebody have it figured out to 100% accuracy?
here is the definition of dogmatism as in websters...
positiveness in assertion of opinion especially when unwarranted or arrogant 2 :
a viewpoint or system of ideas based on insufficiently examined premises
as you can see from these two defs, dogmatism is a negative word.
I say dogmatism on end times prophesy is the wrong stance, what say you?
