Why I changed eschatology

I used to hold to theonomic postmillennialism. Recently, I have come to embrace historic premillennialism. (For the record, my views on theonomy haven't changed all that much). What made me change? I might do a series of posts on why I changed my eschatological positions.

I don't know, but you may have already run across "Pretrib Rapture Diehards" while Googling. If so, you know that the ballyhooed pretrib view has more spots than a leopard colony! Thanks for your good comments. M.E.

I shall look forward to it. My dad is historic premil. I read Revelation for the first time as an adult (having been terrified of it for many years: the tribulation period was a major influence on my childhood) and without knowing there even was such a thing, became an amillenalist. Pre trib seems to take what sounds an archetypal fairytale and translate it into bad sci-fi... not of course my only objection but the views of my childhood seem so far removed from the reality of what I actually read in Revelation itself. However I'm sure you'll put things in a challenging way, and look forward to thinking more about it.
