By Samuel M. Frost, Th.M.
State Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is increasingly coming under fire for her opinions on matters concerning politics. That’s a “no, no” these days unless, of course, you express solely the ideas espoused by the Regime. I like Greene, who hails from Georgia (14th District). She is a strong Conservative Christian. She doesn’t mince words, either (something Republicans could learn). Well, if your sole source of “news” is CNN and YAHOO News!, then Greene is akin to a White Supremacist (aren’t all white people?), a conspiracy kook, and someone who advocates the murder of Democrats. Of course, none of this is true.
The controversy with Greene is that she has some videos out there from her past that advocates what we now call, Q Anon, a rather bizarre internet experiment by computer nerds that took on a life of its own, and became something of which its original progenitors had no clue of foreseeing. Regardless, people want to believe in UFO’s, or Kennedy Assassination theories, or that one really crazy conspiracy theory Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Chuck Schumer endorsed: Trump was a Russian spy sent to infiltrate the American Electoral process and bring the Kremlin to the White House Oval office, are free to do so. Last I checked.
Now, recently, Cori Bush, Representative from Missouri, has moved her office from Greene’s because Bush, an ordained pastor (of all things), said some rather bizarre things about something Greene said. I see a good old fashioned cat fight (I know, I know….that’s pejorative and misogynistic). Bush, a Member of the Black Lives Matter chapter in Missouri (more about them in a second) said that Greene “berated her” in the hallways (sounds like school). However, reporters for Yahoo News!, Rebecca Shabad and Alex Moe, wrote “It’s unclear when the incident occurred or what was said by Greene, also a freshman, and her staff.” Wow. Here’s a case where these reporters are not automatically assuming that Bush is right. In fact, Greene has issued a statement saying that Bush is “lying” and that Bush, in fact, berated her.
Greene has trumpeted the idea that there were massive irregularities in the 2020 Election (an idea I still would like to see investigated, as would 70 million plus Americans and a good number of GOP members). I remain skeptical as to a Biden “win”. That is, I am “not convinced” that this was an Election that held to the standards of Elections in the past. But, that’s another story. The point here is that you are not allowed to say this in this country; and the Dems would like to make it against the law to have this opinion. No joke. Currently, there is an effort, with Bush included, to remove from office all of the Republicans that objected to the Electoral certifications, or that wish to call for an investigation on such matters. Why? Because, as “crazy” Alexandria Cortez has recently stated about Ted Cruz, such people are out to kill, literally, the Democrats. You heard me.
Now, Greene “liked” some posts, supposedly, on Facebook that intimated killing Nancy Pelosi by hanging. But, again, rhetoric in political-speak is one thing, actual intention and willingness through covert planning and preparation is another; so says the law (12 Angry Men cover this, a great movie). Political speak, “we are going to kill them at the polls!” is one thing. “Take our country back!” “Hit them where it hurts!” “Give me liberty, or give me death!” (well, Pat Henry meant that). I have a book in my library that shows amazingly crass cartoons of the past eras published in the New York Times, or Boston Herald that would not, could not be fit for print these days. But, no one took it serious in terms of legally serious (well, maybe John Boothe did). It’s political speak. Kill or be killed.
In another post, apparently Greene espoused the idea that the Parkland School shooting was a “false flag”, has questioned Clinton’s involvement in possible murder conspiracy, etc., etc. Verifying some of these claims you hear (or read) is not the easiest thing to do since many of the so called “posts” have been removed. Not to mention the fact that most were posted in 2018, 2019, before she ran for Congress (2020). And won. My point is, who cares what her opinion is on these matters?
Reporter for GAIA, Tasha Shayne wrote, “Here we are, only a few years after Aguilera’s media debacle, and even the big hitters on the American political scene are fessing up to their feelings and experiences with UFOs. A number of political candidates running for the 2020 election, and politicians in general, have been commenting on the possibility of UFOs and alien visitations. Among them are Amy Klobuchar, William Weld, Michael Bennet, Eric Swalwell, and Pete Buttigieg (to name a few)” (Jan. 22nd, 2021). Do you realize the implications this has? Of course, Mitt Romney is a Mormon, and Mormonism’s early history is filled with conspiracy, murder, mayhem and at one time a threat of war between the US and Utah. Oh well. Mitt’s entitled to his opinion, no matter how kooky I think Joseph Smith meeting with an angel named, Moroni, is. See, this isn’t about opinions anymore: it’s about removal from office all of those Republicans that don’t fall in line with the Democrat Regime and power grab. Never forget that. They cannot have even the remote possibility that Joey “Corn Pop” Biden may have “won” by a massive train wreck concerning “mail in” ballots. Not even a hint. That has to be clamped down shut! Second, the Democrat Regime cannot have any toleration or appreciation of former President Donald Trump. At all. Not even a hint. And if you are a Dem, or lean left, and can’t see this: then you are as blind as a bat. Fact check it. You are blind. As a bat. It’s a fact.
I personally don’t mind that Mitt Romney believes that he will one day have sex with a Virgin and populate his own planet as a God (this is Mormon Doctrine). It’s a stupid idea. But, he can believe it all that he wants to. My question is, does this mean he can’t do his job? Adam “crazy eyes” Schiff is convinced that Trump is a secret double agent for the Soviet…er, for Russia. He told us he has “absolute proof” to that effect. Of course, we have not seen that yet. But the claim is made nonetheless. And yet there he is, still in office. I remember watching live when Hillary famously said on the Today! Show that the allegations against Billy was a “vast, right wing conspiracy theory”. Turns out, it wasn’t. Billy did indeed “have sexual relations with that woman” (he lied to us, on air, remember?). And, yet, Slick Willy is admired by the Dems. Fawned over. One of the greatest Presidents of all time, ever. Right? Billy left a trail of women and out of the way hotels from Arkansas to the White House. And that can be proven. It’s become part of his charisma and charm. O’ Bill, you womanizer, you!
And, we still have the extremely “on record” verifications of Tara Reid, who stated that Joey “you ain’t black” Biden did some horrible things to her in the halls of the sacred Capitol Building. Shame! But, there he is: President of these old United States of ‘Merica. So, does Greene really want Dems to hang like Jeffrey Dahmer eyeballed his next prey at a gay bar in Milwaukee? No. Does she have some maybe rather bizarre ideas about certain subjects? I suppose so. Who cares? Since when has a person’s opinion on a cultural controversy been reason for “removal” from office? I thought you had to, like, break the law or something. You know, like James Comey or Hillary Clinton did. In my prediction: Greene isn’t going anywhere. And I say, also: hang in there, Marj! Fight like hell.
Oh, the fact that Cori Bush is a Member of Black Lives Matter, a soft “terrorist” group (in my opinion), matters not. The one good thing in all of this: Greene actually video of the hallway encounter with Bush:
Author: Samuel M. Frost, Th.D.
Samuel M. Frost has gained the recognition of his family, peers, colleagues, church members, and local community as a teacher and leader. Samuel was raised in the Foursquare Gospel tradition and continued in the rising Charismatic Movement of the early 1980’s. While serving in local congregations he was admitted to Liberty Christian College in Pensacola, Florida where he lived on campus for four years earning his Bachelor’s of Theology degree. It was there under the tutelage of Dr. Dow Robinson (Summer Institutes of Linguistics), and Dr. Frank Longino (Dallas Theological Seminary) that he was motivated to pursue a career in Theology. Dr. Robinson wrote two books on Linguistics, Workbook on Phonological Analysis (SIL, 1970) and Manuel for Bilingual Dictionaries: Textbook (SIL, 1969). It was under these teachers’ guidance that Frost entered into his Master’s studies, being granted a scholarship for Greek I and II at Pentecostal Theological Seminary, accredited, in Cleveland, Tennessee (adjunct of Lee University). Frost completed his study under Dr. French Arrington (The Ministry of Reconciliation, Baker Books, 1980), who used the text of J. Gresham Machen, New Testament Greek for Beginners.
Frost studied Hebrew for two years under Dr. Mark Futato (author, Beginning Biblical Hebrew, Eisenbrauns, 2003) and Dr. Bruce K. Waltke (author, An Introduction to Biblical Hebrew Syntax, Eisenbrauns, 1990) at Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida. With combined credits from PTS and RTS, Samuel completed his Master of Arts in Christian Studies and Master of Arts in Religion from Whitefield Theological Seminary in Lakeland, Florida under the direct tutelage of Dr. Kenneth G. Talbot, co-author of the well reviewed work, Hyper-Calvinism and Arminianism (Whitefield Media, 2005) with Dr. Gary Crampton (and Foreword by the late, Dr. D. James Kennedy). Dr. Talbot also oversaw Samuel’s Dissertation, From the First Adam to the Second and Last Adam (2012) earning him the Magister Theologiae (Th.M.) degree. He also helped put together A Student’s Hebrew Primer for WTS, designed and graded exams for their Hebrew Languages course.
Samuel’s studies lead him into an issue in the field of Eschatology where his scholarship and unique approach in Hermeneutics garnered him recognition. Because of the controversial nature of some of his conclusions, scholars were sharp in their disagreement with him. Frost’s initial work, Misplaced Hope: The Origins of First and Second Century Eschatology (2002, Second Edition, 2006 Bi-Millennial Publishing), sold over four thousand units. While arguing for the Reformation understanding of sola Scriptura as defined by the Westminster Confession of Faith, Frost’s book launched a heavily footnoted argument for a total reassessment of the doctrine known as the Second Coming of Christ. The conclusion was that the events of the war of the Jewish nation against their Roman overlords in 66-70 C.E. formed the New Testament authors’ eschatological outlook, and went no further than their own first century generation; a view otherwise known as “full” or "hyper" Preterism. Internationally recognized Evangelical author and speaker, Steve Wohlberg remarked, ‘On the “preterist” side today…we have such influential leaders as Gary DeMar, Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., David Chilton, R.C. Sproul, Max King, James Stuart Russell, Samuel M. Frost, and John Noe. To these scholars…the beast is not on the horizon, he’s dead” (Italics, his)” (End Time Delusions, Destiny Image Publishers, 2004, page 133). It should be noted that only Noe, King and Frost supported the “full” Preterist position.
Thomas Ice and co-author of the best selling Left Behind series, Tim LaHaye, quote Frost’s work, Misplaced Hope, as well in their book, The End Times Controversy: The Second Coming under Attack (Harvest House Publishers, 2003, page 40). Dr. Jay E. Adams, who single handedly launched “a revolution” in Christian Counseling with his work, Competent to Counsel: An Introduction to Nouthetic Counseling, (1970, Zondervan), also wrote an analysis of Frost’s work in Preterism: Orthodox or Unorthodox? (Ministry Monographs for Modern Times, INS Publishing, 2004). Adams wrote of Misplaced Hope as a "useful, scholarly work" (p.6 - though he disagreed with the overall thesis). Dr. Charles E. Hill, Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, wrote of Misplaced Hope that Frost, “attacks the problem of the early church in a much more thoroughgoing way than I have seen” (When Shall These Things Be? A Reformed Response to Hyper Preterism, Ed. Keith Mathison, Presbyterian & Reformed Publishing, 2003, ‘Eschatology in the Wake of Jerusalem’s Fall’ p. 110-ff.). There were several other works as well that took the scholarship of Frost seriously, like Ergun Caner in The Return of Christ: A Premillennial Perspective, Eds., Steve W. Lemke and David L. Allen (B&H Publishing, 2011).
Because of the controversial nature of Frost’s conclusions on these matters, it was difficult to find a denomination within the Church-at-Large to work in terms of pastoral ministry. That situation changed when Samuel was called by a Bible study group in Saint Petersburg, Florida to found a congregation. Christ Covenant Church was established in 2002 operating under the principles outlined by Presbyterian historian James Bannerman’s work, The Church of Christ: A Treatise on the Nature, Powers, Ordinances, Discipline, and Government of the Christian Church (Banner of Truth Trust, 1974, original, 1869). By-Laws and a Constitution were drawn up in the strictest manner for what was considered an “Independent” establishment of a Presbyterian Church, granted that a “call” was received and recognized by Presiding Elders duly ordained from existing and recognized denominations. Two Elders, one ordained in the Reformed Presbyterian Church (Mike Delores), and another ordained in the Presbyterian Church of America (Dr. Kelly N. Birks, now deceased) tested and reviewed the call, ordaining Samuel on October 20th, 2002, the Twenty Second Sunday after Trinity. Proper forms were submitted to Tallahassee, Florida with the stamp of a Notary Public Witness. Christ Covenant Church (CCC) functioned as a local church for five years with a congregation as large as 30 members. Frost was gaining recognition after Misplaced Hope had been published in January of that year, and conferences were hosted that included debates with another prominent "full" Preterist educator, Don K. Preston. CCC hosted best-selling authors, Thomas Ice, and Mark Hitchcock from Dallas Theological Seminary; and Dr. James B. Jordan (Westminster Theological Seminary), well-known author/pastor in Reformed theological circles. Frost was invited for the next several years to speak at over 25 conferences nation-wide, was featured in articles and an appearance on local news in Tampa for one of CCC’s conferences. The Evangelical Theological Society also invited Samuel to speak at the Philadelphia conference (Frost is currently a Member of ETS as well as Society of Biblical Literature).
During this time Samuel had submitted one more book, Exegetical Essays on the Resurrection of the Dead (TruthVoice, 2008; repr. JaDon Publishing, 2010); and co-wrote, House Divided: A Reformed Response to When Shall These Things Be? (Vision International, 2010). Frost also wrote several Forewords for up and coming authors who were influenced by his teaching materials, as well as cited many times in books, lectures and academic papers. However, because of certain aspects of Hermeneutics and Frost’s undaunted commitment to scholarship (with always a strong emphasis on the personal nature of devotional living to Christ), several challenges to the "hyper" Preterist view he espoused finally gave way, largely due to the unwavering commitment to Samuel by the Dean of Whitefield Theological Seminary, Dr. Kenneth G. Talbot, who continually challenged him. In what shocked the "hyper" Preterist world, Samuel announced after the Summer of 2010 that he was in serious error, and departed the movement as a whole, along with Jason Bradfield, now Assistant Pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church, Lakeland, Florida . Christ Covenant Church had dissolved after 2007 while Samuel continued as a public speaker and writer, largely due to reasons that would unravel Frost’s commitment to "hyper" Preterism as a whole.
The documentation of Frost’s departure was published by American Vision’s Founder, Gary DeMar, with a Foreword by Dr. Kenneth L. Gentry. Why I Left Full Preterism (AV Publishing, 2012) quickly ran through its first run. The book was later republished under the arm of Dr. Kenneth L. Gentry and is sold today (GoodBirth Ministries Publishing, 2019; though still available in Kindle form from American Vision). Dr. Gentry also gave mention to Frost in his book, Have We Missed the Second Coming: A Critique of Hyper Preterism (Victorious Hope Publishing, 2016), noting him as "one of the most prominent" teachers within Full Preterism (135). Dr. Keith Mathison, Professor of Systematic Theology at Reformation Bible College in Sanford, Florida, endorsed the book as well. Samuel has gone on to write, Daniel: Unplugged (McGahan Publishing House, 2021); The Parousia of the Son of Man (Lulu Publishing, 2019); God: As Bill Wilson Understood Him, A Theological Analysis of Alcoholics Anonymous (Lulu Publishing, 2017). He is also active as a certified Chaplain with the Henry County Sheriff’s Department, Indiana, and enrolled with ICAADA (Indiana Counselor’s Association on Alcohol and Drug Abuse), and worked directly under Dr. Dennis Greene, Founder of Christian Counseling and Addictions Services, Inc., for a year. Frost’s passion is in the education of the local church on various issues and occasionally works with Pastor Alan McCraine with the First Presbyterian Church in Lewisville, Indiana, and Bethel Presbyterian Church, Knightstown, Indiana, where he periodically is called upon to give the sermon. Samuel, with his wife, Kimberly, helped to establish Heaven’s Bread Basket food pantry that donates food items to local families in need once a month – a ministry of the Session of First Presbyterian Church, Lewisville, Indiana.
Samuel also works part time at Ace Hardware in New Castle, Indiana for several years. He has a solid, family reputation in the community, and has performed local marriages and funerals. He also sits on the Board of the Historical Preservation Committee in New Castle. Recently, he has completed his two year quest for a Th.D from Christian Life School of Theology Global, Georgia.
