This is on the right track in my opinion. I would go further and say that before “Preterism” was used as a term for a hermeneutical tool to see some passages as fulfilled in the past a hermeneutical tool was already in place and used to see these passages as fulfilled in the Historical Grammitcal method.

Fortunately, I was able to demonstrate that I am fully orthodox. But this experience showed me the danger of accidental false associations.

This will surprise some of my readers, but I would like to state…
