When you say "progressive dispensationalism" what do you mean? I pretty well go along with what has been taught as dispensationalsim over the year by Clarence Larkin and C.I. Scofield.

If ya'll want some good and easy to understand thoughts about dispensationalism read Kevin J. Conner's books (he is against dispensationalism). He really brings out some arguments that I have never heard stumped.

A_PoMo that is one thing that I didn't like about my MDIV expereince. I had to read books by people who made things too complicated. It's like Tozer once said, "If your straining and sweating while your analyzing the Word your most likely doing it through the flesh and not in the Spirit."

Finished that last night. Time to start on something new.

I'll check out Conner. I have questions about dispensationalism.

Yeah, I figure the more complicated and convoluted the explanation the bigger the holes in the argument tend to be. At least that's what I keep telling myself. That way I don't feel nearly as dumb as I look. :)

The idea behind dispensationalism is that God always has had one way to be approached. That way is by faith. However, that faith may have been expressed in different ways at different times. At one time circumcision was a visible sign of the covenant but it no longer is. At one time animals were sacrificed but no longer are.

Conner presents that all are saved by the blood of the Lamb.

Jim thanks for the Magee book. It is good. I would have liked it better if he would not have used the word person (Reeves has spoiled me).

Yes, Jesus is the lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
All before His death looked forward to it for salvation.
All after His death look back to it for salvation.
That's why some dispensationalists have no problem saying that when the animal sacrifices are reinstated in the future kingdom age they are done as a memorial to the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.

Jim my man -- You come from a Scoffield generation. I own a Scoffield Bible, but I haven't used it in about 10 yrs.

My prof, a staunch dispensationalist (not hyper-disp though), says that of all arguments against disp. this is the one that has the longest legs. He argued against it, but said it was debatable.
