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.

ANYBODY ELSE?
