What Makes The Millennium A Failure?

Q.  Re: Your study on Dispensationalism.  What makes the Millennium end in failure and judgment?  I’ve always thought it was our Lord’s final triumph over evil–when he briefly looses them to send them into everlasting punishment.  Please enlighten me as to what I have missed here.

What’s Happened To The Preaching?

Q.   Does the Bible address the problem of so many preachers not preaching the Bible as they used to?  A lot of the scriptures seem to get twisted and give the wrong view.  It’s getting harder and harder to find good Bible based preaching.
