Notice how premils deny both of the essays above, both sides of dominion. They oppose the idea of creating heaven on earth: heaven is not for now, heaven is only for, well, heaven. But they also deny the dominion mandate. Our purpose, they say, is not to get involved in the world, "take dominion," and stuff like that. Our purpose is to be "spiritual" -- "heavenly-minded."

What Makes You Think YOU Get to Go to Heaven?
Those who seek to "bring in the Kingdom of Heaven on earth" are accused of ignoring heaven. How many of those who are pining away for heaven and ignoring earthly duties even have a right to think they're going to heaven when they die? The Bible says some people who expect to go there will be surprised and disappointed.
