"Problems with Premillennialism"

Between Two Worlds has problems with premillennialism. Admittedly I have never had enough interest in [or knowledge about] the subject to develop a strong opinion, but this is interesting and the reactions will be too.
For those interested in studying eschatology - and who are open to considering an articulate case on behalf of amillenialism - check out this series of studies by Sam Storms. (Sorry, the link won't work in Firefox, you have to use Explorer.)

I recently read Storms's overview on Problems with Premillennialism, which shows why premillennialism can't be squared with passages like 1 Cor. 15:22-28; 1 Cor. 15:50-57; Rom. 8:18-23; 2 Pet. 3:8-13; Matt. 25:31-46; 2 Thess. 1:5-10; and John 5:28-29.

In my (hopefully humble) opinion, these passages are clear that when Christ comes, it's "curtains" on sin and death. There will be a final judgment and a final resurrection, with a new heaven and a new earth.
More at Between Two Worlds [3/14]:
...[B]ecause so few have been able to access Sam Storms's article successfully, I thought it'd be worth making available in a different way. As it turns out, Storms has expanded the article into a chapter for a forthcoming book on eschatology. ...

So here it is: Sam Storms on Problems with Premillennialism.
