On the third question above, are you a pre-millennialist or a post-millennialist or an a-millennialst? Are you a rapturist? An Israelist? A dispensationalist? A preterist?
I have a new friend who uses a term I haven’t heard before. I like this term. I’m going to start using it myself. When considering what happens at the end, like my new friend, I am an I-don’t-care-ist. (I’m a closet or not-so-closeted I-don’t-care-ist about the other questions above, too.)
There is another person at our church who interprets eschatological scripture differently. I take him to be sincere, honest, and a lover of God. When it comes to these passages, I don’t understand how he supports his ideas, and I don’t think he’s accurate in certain literal readings of some passages. I think his position on certain eschatological matters is rife with inconsistency. I’m not even sure why he cares so much. (But, again, I take him to be sincere.)
About these things, I simply don’t care. I am an I-don’t-care-ist!
