Amillenialism verses premillenial dispensationalism
This is probably going to open up a can of worms but I wanted to hear what the opinions of different denominations have on the idea of the millenium as presented in the book of Revelation. The idea that there would be a literal millenium has been around since Justin Martyr but there were other church fathers like Origen and Augustine who took it metaphorically rather than literally. Most evangelicals hold the former view while Catholics and Orthodox (and Lutherans I think) hold the latter. Either one can be backed up with references from scripture but which idea is more scripturally sound?
Is dispensationalism or the idea of a rapture any older than 200 years? I've found no evidence that it is.
