(On Matthew 22:7 ; The Parable of the Marriage Supper)
"This parable seems to show the cause or reason of the ruin, rejection, and utter destruction of the Jewish nation, and the city Jerusalem ; or what was the cause why wrath came upon them to the uttermost ?" (Expositions, p. 543)

"This no doubt containeth a prophesy of the Roman armies, who made such a fearful slaughter of the Jews, which fell out about fifty years after the death of our blessed Lord ; and by this city is meant Jerusalem, which was burnt and consumed to ashes, as also was the holy temple." (Expositions, p. 545)

(On Matthew 24:20)
"But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, nor on the sabbath day." The disciples are commanded, with respect to the dreadfulness and peril of the siege of Jerusalem, to do those things which belonged to the Jews, who thought that it was not lawful for them on the sabbath to go above 1000 greater (or 2000 lesser) paces; and therefore they ought to pray, that they may not be necessitated to fly on the sabbath, because the accustomed sabbath-day's journey would not be enough to convey them beyond the danger of the Roman soldiers. And by this the grievousness of the calamity is indicated." (p. 28-29)

(On Revelation 14:4)
"These are they that have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins," Rev. xiv. 4. Virgins are chaste and not defiled. So the members of the true visible church are not defiled with idolatry, not popish, nor any other superstitions, they hate spiritual fornication. Idolatry is often in the scripture called whoredom, adultery, and fornication. Hence in Israel such who kept themselves pure from idolatry, were called the virgin daughter of Sion." (Expositions, p. 647)

The following is from "The Glory of a True Church, And its Discipline display’d" By Benjamin Keach: under the heading "Of dealing with Hereticks and Blasphemers" the article is posted at: I believe it cast much gospel light on Preterism.

"AS TOUCHING HERETICKS OR HERESY, the same Censure, when they are convicted, ought to pass against them; HERESY IS COMMONLY RESTRAINED TO SIGNIFY ANY PERVERSE OPINION OR ERROR IN A FUNDAMENTAL POINT OF RELIGION, as to deny the Being of God, or the Deity of Christ, or his Satisfaction, and Justification alone by his Righteousness, OR TO DENY THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODY, or eternal Judgment, or the like…..SUCH THAT ARE GUILTY OF SCHISM OR DIVISIONS IN THE CHURCH, OUGHT TO BE EXCOMMUNICATED ALSO. Heresies are called Damnable by the Apostle Peter; without Repentance such cannot be saved, as bring in Damnable Heresies, denying the Lord that bought them.

Two things render a Man an Heretick according to the common signification of the Word. 1. An Error in matters of Faith, Fundamental or Essential to Salvation. 2. Stubbornness and Contumacy in holding and maintaining it. A Man that is an Heretick, after the first and second Admonition reject. Now that this Rejection is all one with Excommunication, appears by what Paul speaks, I Tim. 1: 20. Of whom is Hymeneus and Alexander, whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to Blaspheme. THEIR HERESY, OR BLASPHEMY WAS IN SAYING THE RESURRECTION WAS PAST." [emphasis added]

These statements speak for themselves. Brother Keach addressess the FULL PRETERIST view and classifies those who hold to the view as "Hereticks". He believed that these heretics should be excluded from the Lord's church and that if they remained unrepentant that is proved that they were not saved.

Now, what do you think?
