Dr. Kelly Nelson Birks
Dear Dr. Spargamino:
This is Dr. Kelly Nelson Birks. I am the pastor of Messiah Reformed Church in Omaha Nebraska. I am a Preterist. I am what you referred to today on the radio as an "Extreme Preterist."
With all due respect, according to what I heard on the show today, I do not believe that you are able to defend your futurist view against a real Preterist. Therefore in the interest of glorifying the Lord Jesus by rightly dividing the word of truth, and to offer a better explanation on what the Bible teaches regarding eschatology, I would like to invite you sir to a public debate on the subject of "What did Jesus teach regarding the timing of the Parousia?"
I am open to see this debate conducted "live" on the radio, or possibly if it can be arranged, in person at an agreed upon venue. I am the host of a weekly one hour radio teaching show here in Omaha on am 660 KCRO. We can do the debate on that show if you would like. I would very much appreciate a positive response to my challenge as many men that i have challenged to debate on the subject (Keith Mathison, Andrew Sandlin, Gary Hedrick), have all refused citing numerous excuses. I believe that they refuse to publicly debate me because they do not want to take the chance of being put on the spot in an open forum. I hope that your response to my challenge will not be like theirs.
I appreciate the fact that on the radio show today (Wednesday, 5/ 23) you did not condemn Preterists to Hell or say that they are in some way in an unsaved condition because of our eschatology. I am a regenerate believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, depending upon his grace alone to save me. I confess with my mouth, "Jesus is Lord, and believe in my heart that God raised him from dead." I know that I have everlasting life because of Christ's statement in John 6: 47, "He that believeth on me has everlasting life." I am saved by grace through faith and that not of myself it is the gift of God.
I wanted you to understand that you are not responding to someone outside of the faith of Christ.
I look forward to your response.
Sincerely in Christ,
Kelly Birks, Ph.D
