Why Am I A Dispensationalist? | Chris Giles

  Chris Giles is a layman living in Forney, Texas with his wife, Fran, and their four children. I am nothing more than a layman who has spent the majority of his life in church. Although I was raised a Catholic, I was always an outsider. I never quite fit in to the ritual, the liturgy, or the rites of the Catholic church. I found the Bible to be interesting and would read the large picture Bible that I had [...]

A Primer on Dispensational and Covenant Theology

Dwight Oswald "Distinguish the ages, and the Scriptures will harmonize." – Augustine (Caveat: Sadly, Augustine was not consistent in applying the sound hermeneutic of  a literal/normal principle of interpretation resulting in faulty conclusions.) 2 Timothy 2:15 (NKJV) Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (emphasis mine) A FEW QUALIFIERS I am a dispensationalist! As I address errors and concerns regarding Covenant theology I speak in general terms. In [...]

English Grammar for Bible Students | Sentence Structure

Dr. Randy White Language plays a powerful role in the study and interpretation of God’s word. Since most students of the Word do not have a functional knowledge of Greek or Hebrew, it is essential that they do have a working knowledge of English. In order to achieve the most accurate reading of scripture, the ability to analyze the grammar of the English language is one of the most important skills to master as a student of the Word. In order to [...]

The New Testament Chapter by Chapter | 1 Timothy 2

Daniel Goepfrich 1 Timothy 2 begins the actual instructions or clarifications that Timothy needed to finish his task. “First of all,” he needed to make sure that the local assemblies prayed for “all people, even for kings and all who are in authority” (1 Timothy 2:1-8). These prayers had two goals. First, praying for the authorities would affect how the believers lived, leading to a more “peaceful and quiet life.” Second, praying for all people would result in people coming to believe in [...]

Why Am I A Dispensationalist? | Paul Miles

Paul Miles Paul and Lena Miles “Why am I a dispensationalist?” For me, a better question might be, “Why am I still a dispensationalist?” But, let me start from the beginning. I grew up in the Bible Belt of East Texas, in a youth group that was more fun and games than Bible study. I wanted to know more about the Bible, but as Milton said, “The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed.” I soon concluded that Christianity [...]

The New Testament Chapter by Chapter | 1 Timothy | Introduction & Chapter 1

Why Am I A Dispensationalist? | Jim Lilley

Jim Lilley Pastor Jim Lilley and his wife, Bonnie I was reared in a Southern Baptist Church where the Second Coming was never once mentioned. In fact, as a  young man I went to my pastor and asked him about the book of The Revelation. He responded that it was a "closed book," and he only preached from one verse in the book (Revelation 3:20). However, from time to time I would hear Dr. J. Harold Smith preach on the [...]
