    What derogatory comments did I make about the futurist view?

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    This was inclusive of his nutty previous thread and his mangling of scripture, taking things out of context, and zombifying the resurrection.

    I am a futurist, and I have to say that I've never seen CP speak derogatorily about it.

    I had thought it was in that thread - but I do recall you commenting that Jim got his theology/doctrine from 'Left Behind' recently. Am I mistaken?

    Very much. And I don't think this is the first time.

    While I generally resist being stuffed into boxes, the futurist view as generally described here is one I actually believe and preach.

    You seem to be a bit quick, of late, to disagree with, or find fault with me. Something I did?

    So, let's be clear -- I'm not disputing at all the resurrection of the saints, or the rapture, or anything of the sort...

    And I'm not trying to nitpick terminology.

    I was genuinely curious, so I asked. When the Lutherans shared our building, I learned a lot of terminology I didn't grow up with, and found it interesting.

    I was simply - as stated in the OP - curious if I could be wrong that we (Christians) don't generally refer to our "going to Heaven" as "ascending".

    JimL's real goof is thinking that heaven is in outer space. But then that is Jimmy.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
