I think Pastor HAN just has a preference for the esoteric, versus what we consider the plain obvious truth of revelation’s prophecy. also, I don’t think we should question the salvation of believers who have this almost natural tendency to gravitate towards what might be called esoteric views. Clearly the “stridence” of language and methods for considering various viewpoints has been overdone on both sides of the argument. Maybe this open debate helped tone the rhetoric down so to speak, at least among these scholars and pastors. Now if only this had migrated to the various forums/discussion boards!

I have only watched two of the three videos so far, but here are three observations:


  1. Hanegraaff unwittingly revealed his real reason for desiring an early dating of the writing of the Book of Revelation when he attacked the pre-tribulation Rapture in a response when that was not even a debate point at the time.

  2. Jan Markel has played an audio clip of Hanegraaf telling a caller that the pre-tribulation Rapture is not in the Scriptures, it is a "19th century invention", and therefore people who espouse a pre-tribulation viewpoint are deceiving people (all of these are either mischaracterizations or outright falsehoods)

  3. There are many points that Christians can politely "agree to disagree." The problem with what Hanegraaff "The Bible…

It is true I believe Dr. Hitchcock had the upper hand in the entirety of the debate. I personally believe that Mr. Hanegraaf is a true believer but ultimately God will be the judge of his heart not I.

It is important that unless one is spouting outright heresies we should be gracious in our debates and at times I think Dr. Hitchcock could have done better in that regard. Let us search diligently the Scriptures to be able to give to every one an account of why we believe what we believe. All of that s…

Thanks for posting the debate. I found it very interesting. Here are my comments: 1. I do not believe that Mr. Hanegraaf is a false prophet. I do not doubt his salvation. He sincerely believes in his view but can be sincerely wrong, just like all who read your articles can also be sincerely wrong. The debate has nothing to do with salvation. 2. Regarding the date of the writing of Revelations, it could have been written in 65AD or 95 AD, again this does not affect our salvation but does affect our actions. If you believe most or all prophesy ended at the destruction of the temple, then we will not care about any prophetic books. If, however, we bel…

Yeah, Hitchcock wiped the floor with him in his quite way. I have never been a fan of Hanegraaf. He just explains away so much scripture for my taste.
