my Critique of Dispensationalism (7)

Last time we began our analysis of the apostle Paul’s “allegorizing” of the factual story of Hagar, Sarah’s maid, from whom Abraham begat Ishmael (Genesis 16). Although God told both Abraham and Hagar, He would make a great nation of Ishmael (21:13, 18), which is a promise, He did not establish His covenant with him. […]

To conclude our discussion about Irenaeus and why dispensationalists want to call upon him, let us say that they are going through great pains to build up his stature in that regard. For instance, Jeffrey L. Edwards wrote a ninety-two-page research paper in 2013 at Baptist Bible Seminary titled: Irenaeus, Is He a Second Century […]

My Critique of dispensationalism (3)

In my last article, I stated that dispensationalists do not present an honest argument supporting their interpretation system. In doing so, I cited Gregory Peterson, defending dispensationalism, who cited Mark Hitchcock, the writer of a doctoral dissertation favoring the late date of Revelation (A.D. 95).

In addition, they believe in a literal hermeneutic, saying they employ literalism unless it makes no sense.

Now/Not Yet? Not!

There are several degrees of time tenses in the Greek language, but they are all nuances of the three we are all familiar with: past, present, and future. If something is in the past, it is history; in the present, it is now; in the future, not yet. It is really rather simple. However, Biblical […]

Finally! Revelation

The apostle Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, said that we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).  We have also fallen short in our failure to carry out our mandate in what Christ commissioned us to do. If we can lead just one person to Christ […]
