No date setting for the Second Coming and/or the Rapture.
Only God the Father knows when this is.
MT 24:36 "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
NOTE "Date setting" refers to a specific date, not the season.
"next week", "on on December 21, or specifically in 2012" is considered date setting.
"I believe it will happen soon", "during my lifetime" is not considered date setting.
We do not allow speculation as to whether a specific, real person is the Anti-Christ or related eschatological figurees/figurines. This applies mainly to living people....but could be extended.......
The teaching of 'Full Preterism' is not allowed to be advanced in ETC.
(also called Hyper-Preterism, and Hymenean-Preterism).
Similarly, this is the view that all prophecy was concluded by 70 AD, and that the 2nd Coming occurred in 70 AD, and all 'end time events' were fulfilled by 70 AD.

We do not allow advancing, linking to websites (linking in general is fine but not for this purpose), cross-posting, or any form of proselytizing for Modern-Day Prophets and/or their predictions (Divine Revelation, Bible Codes, etc).
Also, please be charitable to people, whether living or dead; who are not members of this forum; and who are not present to be involved in the discussion. Going into 'witch-hunts' against Mr. Fred Bozo because he is a famous teacher of the demon-clown doctrine, should be avoided. Referencing other 3rd-party people is necessary at times, but taking out assault rifles and going after them Chuck-Norris and Rambo-Style should be avoided. Discuss with one another, and give those absent from our membership a break froim undue criticism and attack.
