"[Roderick] is trying to strip away the very thing from them that allows [full preterists] to START. He wants some vague “God sustains” axiom."
Well, Sam partially seems to understand it. I'm trying to get hyperpreterists to tell me 3 things:
1. WHAT IS THE BIBLE? (why 66 books and no more or less)
2. WHY IS THE BIBLE THE BIBLE? (and not just any text)
3. HOW IS THE BIBLE THE BIBLE? (where did the Bible come from)
Indeed I AM fully admitting that I am trying to STRIP AWAY the false use of the Bible by the hyperpreterists. Frost and his fellow Clarkians approach the Bible as if it was a logician primer text rather than the SUSTAINED Word of God. The axiom that God Sustains is not vague. If God doesn't sustain basic truth and the basic understanding of truth then all the Clarkian propositions in the world aren't going to help anyone.
