dispensationalism, a false teaching that arrived on the scene in the last 100 plus years ago, yet was never a teaching of the church prior.
I was unaware that recentness assigned a doctrine as heretical. (think Justification by faith alone in the 1500s). I thought the test was 'is it Scriptural?' Also, what is wrong with a literal approach to Scripture and seeing the Church as separate in God's dealings from Israel

At what point do you realize, that you pocess an inability to articulate, study, approve, edify and take the word of God seriously? I’ll give you a hint......when your ego gets in the way and you abandon self control, puffed up as though you were given something special, and treat the word as though it were a football team...You need discernment not only in scripture, but discernment in how you treat others
Rightlydivided, I don't know whether you have noticed, or not, but I refuse to comment to preacher4truth, because he is really not a preacher for TRUTH even though he went to PREACHER'S SCHOOL. I quit commenting to him because of his inhumane way he attacks people and applies demeaning names to them. I apologized to him for some revengeful things I said to him and ask for his apology with his remark being that he had nothing to apologize for.
No, you falsely and purposefully misinterprete myself and others, in whom Jesus has taught through the Holy Spirit....This is one of the reasons Grace through faith without works, is a beautiful thing...it applies to, “you” for boasting of your works and supposed wisdom, which is folly. Your personal interpretation of scripture has already shown to be not of the spirit “today” and purely flesh as you berate others. I am guilty of improperly conducting myself in the past also, but I am not afraid to admit it, that is the difference between you and me.(and I am admittedly nothing!!).that is because the Holy Spirit holds me accountable when I am not humble, and insists I be a better example to my family, friends, brethren, those in opposition to what I believe, and you alike.
I know that we interpret the scriptures differently, but I hope I never come across as hateful as preacher4truth. I apologized to him saying that the scripture says that I should defend the gospel in meekness and in truth, which he scoffed at.

Aside from His inner circle and Nicodemus, can someone show me where Jesus presented THE Gospel to the Jewish Nation?
He came unto his own and his own received him not. A profit is not accepted in his own town, or something like that. My bible study computer is broken down and I am bad about remembering where scripture is located.

If not all will obey, why is “all” used? Like in Timothy?
I'm going with 'all' rather than many. I don't see any reason why 'many' can't mean everyone. For example, there is one person in the world that received salvation. Then another, now a 'couple'. Still another, a 'few', all the billions born since, thus "many'. Something like that. This is one possible explanation to the seemingly contradiction.

Aside from His inner circle and Nicodemus, can someone show me where Jesus presented THE Gospel to the Jewish Nation?
Mat_4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
Mat_9:35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
Mat_11:5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

Mar_1:14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
Mar_1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
Mar_8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.

Mar_13:10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
Mar_14:9 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.
Mar_16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

etc etc. That was just a sample.

Granted all the above are meaningless if one holds to the "two gospels" theory. Or however many they come up with in the future. Look. If gospel of the kingdom and gospel of grace are different, then we need to add "Gospel of peace" and "gospel of God" and "gospel of Christ" too. ALL THESE are different gospels...... NO, there is only ONE GOSPEL, its the same thing, good news about Christ, no need to over complicate things

Romans 2:16 King James Version (KJV)
16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Nothing to see here folks....carry on

It states in the bible that it is God's will and desire that all should be saved. Seems strange to think that God is unable to fulfil His own will and desire to accomplish this.
Yes, I’m certain he could have, I think he wanted to be with those that chose him, free will.

Of course the test is if it's Scriptural, when I mentioned it being new and not found, I am speaking of among Biblical scholarly works, in other words via "Scriptural" means. Can we be on the same page here, and you just give the benefit of the doubt that I believe the test is with Scripture, without the assertions otherwise? The fact remains it is new, so beware.

Recent doctrines fall under the if it's new it isn't true; Dispensationalism, Open Theism, Hyper-Grace, Universalism, Hyper-Calvinism, Full Preterism/Preterism, Easy-Believe-ism, Believe-ism (in other words anti-Lordship teachings) &c. For the record, being a former IFB pastor, I was immersed in the errors of Dispensationalism from DTS, Ryrie, Chafer, Scofield, Irving, Hodges, Swindoll &c. It was what was taught along with if anyone held other views they were heretical. That's pretty arrogant concerning the teachings are new themselves.

The church knew nothing of this new error for some 1800 years. What does that tell you, brother? How long has this teaching been around? Since Clarence Larkin, John Darby, C I Scofield? Show me where their teachings were prior to them bringing it into fundamentalist Baptist churches, not that premillenialism was being taught but where Dispensationalism was being taught. Please show us the Dispensational view held by church fathers that proponents of the error hold to today. Not that they used the word "dispensation" in church history. Dispensationalsim itself.

There is safety in counsel from others; Dispensational teachings do not pass Biblical or historical test. It is not mentioned in works of the church, theologies, history, or by any godly men of the past in their works.

I'd dare say that none of these newer teachers were anywhere close to the scholarly level as others in the past, just read them and see. You'd know this simply by picking up some older works and reading them. You'd also note a vast difference in the Gospel as well, from then to today. That is what is really at stake here, by the way.

One problem of Dispensationalism is that it views others as heretical if they do not embrace their new views. Another issue is it assumes that God came up with "plan B" after the Jews rejected their Messiah. That is pure bovine scatology. Your'e aware of this, correct? It is an attack on the nature and attributes of God. God has had plan A from the beginning of time, to say otherwise is frankly foolish. The cross was not plan B, it was the original plan.

Yet another issue is with Dispensationalist soteriology. I'd advise you to look into the teachings of Zane Hodges on this soteriology, and how the church has embraced his teachings at least to some level. Still another is the treatment of Jewish people as if they are saved no matter what simply because they are Jews. None of these views are Biblical, and Dispensationalism doesn't pass the test against Scripture.

All of God's people, no matter the age, have been dealt with in the same manner concerning eternal salvation. There is not one plan for the Jew, and then another for the Gentile. This is proven by the fact that Paul preached the same message to the Jew that he did to the Gentile, so there is one Gospel to all. God doesn't have a backup plan, he has one plan. There is one covenant, not two. I see both Jew and Gentile as one body, not as 2 differing groups, and more importantly, it's Biblical;

11Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— 12remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. 17And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. 18For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19So then you are no longer strangers and aliens,d but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God bye the Spirit. -- Ephesians 2:11-22.

Now onto this that you brought up: Justification by faith alone was always the Gospel, just because Luther was made aware of this didn't mean it was new it just meant he was converted. Romans 4 teaches this as do the epistles, the OT, and Christ. Some Dispensationalists teach salvation in the old covenant was by obedience to the Law. This is utterly false, and it came from Darby and was passed along to others.

Nevertheless your Luther example falls quite a bit short of being evidence or proof of your argument. Did you really think this thing of justification by faith alone was "new" with Luther? It appears the answer is yes. If not, what then is you argument? That argument of yours right there is filled so full of problems and loaded with issues its remarkable. Really? That was something new, brother??? Wow.

Not sure where the question of "what is wrong with a literal approach to Scripture" came from? Where did I imply it was wrong? Are you accusing me of not believing in a literal interpretation? Just because I'm not a Dispensationalist doesn't mean I reject a literal interpretation of Scripture. But then again, many things in Scripture are figurative as well. Please keep the assertions truthful brother; don't make baseless false assertions.

My advice to you would be for you to read some older works to get a sense of the true Gospel, attributes of God &c because you're making some serious fundamental and classic mistakes as seen in your arguments and stance.

THIS is THE Gospel unto Salvation.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 King James Version (KJV)15 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Now I ask again, besides His inner circle and Nicodemus, when did Jesus preach THAT Gospel to the Jewish Nation?
The word Gospel, simply means "Good News". IF the Jews had accepted Him that WAS Good News to them.

But please answer. When did Jesus preach to the Nation that He was going to be crucified and die for their sin? I guess we COULD say this passage qualifies maybe:

The Scribes and Pharisees Ask for a Sign
38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.”

39 But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it,because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here.

I'd tend to agree with being wary about 'newness' but I tend to be wary of 'oldness' as well without Scriptural backing (think infant baptism).

Recent doctrines fall under the if it's new it isn't true; Dispensationalism, Open Theism, Hyper-Grace, Universalism, Hyper-Calvinism, Full Preterism/Preterism, Easy-Believe-ism, Believe-ism (in other words anti-Lordship teachings) &c.

It was what was taught along with if anyone held other views they were heretical. That's pretty arrogant concerning the teachings are new themselves.
I also agree that the hyper dispensationals can be quite arrogant (at least that has been my experience). I'll be interested to know your view on similar subjects. Are you of MacArthur's persuasion when it comes to Lordship salvation? (although he is also Dispensational).

The church knew nothing of this new error for some 1800 years. What does that tell you, brother? How long has this teaching been around? Since Clarence Larkin, John Darby, C I Scofield? Show me where their teachings were prior to them bringing it into fundamentalist Baptist churches, not that premillenialism was being taught but where Dispensationalism was being taught. Please show us the Dispensational view held by church fathers that proponents of the error hold to today. Not that they used the word "dispensation" in church history. Dispensationalsim itself.
Like I said, my criteria for accepting/rejecting a doctrine is not if it is old/new but if it is true to Scripture or runs contrary.

There is safety in counsel from others; Dispensational teachings do not pass Biblical or historical test. It is not mentioned in works of the church, theologies, history, or by any godly men of the past in their works.
So you hold to Infant Baptism? That passes the history test.

My advice to you would be for you to read some older works to get a sense of the true Gospel, attributes of God &c because you're making some serious fundamental and classic mistakes as seen in your arguments and stance.
I skimmed down and noticed this. I'm sorry but I don't care conversing with those that assume ignorance to their readers. You have no idea what I have read, what I know, what Churches I have attended. It really was a condescending and arrogant stroke on your part. And you claim to have been a pastor? Oy Vey.

Or you could just read the truth:

Does Paul’s gospel exist? Of course, Christ showed him directly

Romans 2:16 King James Version (KJV)
16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Interesting, according to who?

Again...

Romans 16:25 King James Version (KJV)
25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

Who’s gospel? Kept secret since when? Revealed when????

Peter preached the resurrection of Christ “before” Paul was saved, so how could Paul say this?

2 Timothy 2:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:

Who’s gospel?

NO ONE ELSE EVER CLAIMED “my gospel”

I also agree that the hyper dispensationals can be quite arrogant (at least that has been my experience). I'll be interested to know your view on similar subjects. Are you of MacArthur's persuasion when it comes to Lordship salvation? (although he is also Dispensational).



Like I said, my criteria for accepting/rejecting a doctrine is not if it is old/new but if it is true to Scripture or runs contrary.



So you hold to Infant Baptism? That passes the history test.



I skimmed down and noticed this. I'm sorry but I don't care conversing with those that assume ignorance to their readers. You have no idea what I have read, what I know, what Churches I have attended. It really was a condescending and arrogant stroke on your part. And you claim to have been a pastor? Oy Vey.
More false assertions? Nowhere did I remotely suggest I believe in infant baptism, lol!!!!

You didn't "skim" you "skipped" past where I showed your error. But of course you'd skip right past your erroneous "new" teaching of Luther, right? Why not address your absurd evidence that falls short? Because you can't stand correction?

How convenient of you, and how wrong you are: Justification by faith wasn't a new teaching, that you've implied it was shows you don't know much and/or just made a serious error. This is why I conclude you haven't read much because that much is seemingly apparent. Then the name calling and ridicule on your part affirms it and is always the ploy of those who've lost an argument. You really should not have gone there brother.

I get it, you can't prove dispy leanings by any scholarly church teachings because it's not biblical, nor that Luther's teaching was new, so you resort to ad hominem tactics. Hmmmm. How sad. Anyhow, get your last word in, I'm done here.

If you do not learn to empty your cup, and get off of that horse, especially when your speaking to people (humans), your future in evangelism will not profit you much. What is your issue?

Experience on Forums have taught me that I am wasting my time responding to those who continually assume wrong things about me. Such as this of yours...
My advice to you would be for you to read some older works to get a sense of the true Gospel, attributes of God &c because you're making some serious fundamental and classic mistakes as seen in your arguments and stance.
It is usually a reflection of how they got into wrong doctrine in the first place.

btw, I ASKED if you held to infant baptism, I did not charge you with it. (another assumption) I asked, because it is an example of an ancient Church doctrine that many scholars hold, that's all.
