Dan Phillips (a great guy who I am coming to admire more and more every day, whom having not seen, I love, and with whom I also agree in his major premise in this post) wrote this today at Pyromaniacs;
“Dispensationalism. (Please read carefully what follows.) A constant criticism is that it is new. Some reject it for that reason alone.
This has always struck me as ironic, coming from Calvinists. Our forefathers met with exactly the same criticism from Romanists, in their day. They responded by citing church fathers who stated or accorded with the same truths, but mostly they responded that Scripture isn’t new, so their (Scriptural) view also is not new.
Reject Dispensationalism if you believe it does not accord with the Bible. Put forth your better, more Biblical view. But don’t reject it solely because you think it is new.”
I think it is new. What do you the rest of you Dispensationalists think and why?
