Mark Dever has recently been preaching through the book of Revelation. This past Sunday, while preaching on Revelation 20 he made a statement during that sermon that some may find rather provocative. Speaking to pastors in particular he said, "You are in sin if you lead your congregation to have a statement of faith that requires a particular millennial view". The question then seems to be, are millennial views essential? Should we be dogmatic or require a certain eschatological position for membership in the church? Should we exercise ecclesiastical separation from groups that hold differing eschatological positions?
