BTW I hope I'm being clear that I am not intending to accuse you of 'heresy' or 'heterodoxy' or anything like that at all. There is no defined dogma on the subject, and certainly with a book as obscure as the Book of Revelation can be, a variety of approaches to interpretation is to be expected and is legitimate. My objection is to the notion that the premillennial view is the correct interpretation, which I don't think has been established - plenty of competent scholars of the Book of Revelation are not premillennialists - and it is indeed a minority view, for whatever that's worth. In any case, it is, or at least I see it as, an issue of interpretation about which reasonable people can disagree, rather than a moral issue or a question of 'orthodoxy'. I'm sorry if I did not make that clear in my earlier comments.
