Dispensationalism is Not New (Anybody Else? #1)
This is the first of a new series (seriously). Do you really need an introduction to it? I didn’t think so. – JT
Claim: Dispensationalism is not new, it’s been around forever.
Response: Throughout the history of Christian thinking since the Apostles, redemption by faith alone has never had as its foundation that God was pursuing two distinct purposes in history – until J.N. Darby.
Given the 2000+ years of Christian history, and J.N. Darby introducing this distinction between Israel and the Church in the early 1800’s, I’d say that’s pretty new. If it’s new, it ain’t biblical.
