Postmillennialism: Answering Contrary Texts

Here I will pose some counterarguments to the most commonly heard “contrary texts” that supposedly refute postmillennialism. I do not deny that there are difficulties in every eschatological system. The difficulty in reconciling our doctrine with all Scripture is the reason for our differences. However, there are the fewest difficulties with postmillennialism as the objections can be boiled down to a handful of categories. Of course, there are more scriptures than the ones I list here. However, other examples will be similar to the contrary texts I have listed below and a similar counterargument will be sufficient to answer each of these.

QAnon's "Great Awakening"

A lot of Christians who dove head-long into conspiracy theories have had their faith broken. QAnon spoke in spiritual terms of a Great Awakening that would come in 2021. This has an appeal to Christians, but I am afraid that in the final analysis that it was a hoped for political victory, rather than Christ’s victorious kingdom.

Even so, Christian dominion does not come without setbacks.
