A Doctrinal Crises

Randy White There is a doctrinal crisis in the broader Christian world today. It is a crisis that is seen in Protestant, evangelical, and, to a lesser degree, in fundamentalist circles. It is a crisis that is rampant within denominational churches and a growing menace in independent churches. For several generations, doctrinal teaching has been out of favor. Today, the chickens have come home to roost. As I see it, the doctrinal crises has three roots. Problem 1: doctrine has been boiled [...]

Questioning the Seminary Approach

Dr. Randy White In denominational (and many independent) churches, a master's level seminary education has been the de facto prerequisite for pastoral leadership for decades. Personally, I think it is time to question the assumption. Fallacies of a Master's Level Education A Master of Divinity degree is 90-plus hours of post-collegiate education. On average it costs $14,673 a year.  Surely it equips the best-prepared pastoral candidate, right? Well...not so fast! Fallacy #1: A Master's Level Education Confirms Biblical Knowledge Almost every seminary is accredited by [...]

The Year to Question the Assumptions

Randy White, CEO My own personal mantra has become "Question the Assumptions." In my journey from seminary into the pastorate and then (finally) into Bible study, I began to realize that so much of what I had been taught was simply wrong. For years I thought it was right, that I was preaching Scripture, that my denomination was one of the most conservative, Bible-believing denominations on the planet, and that the "Baptist Faith and Message" was the end of all theological discussions. [...]

Jumpstart: A Dispensational Devotional | Have You Left Your First Love?

By: George Zellar Revelation 2:1-7 Do you remember when you were a brand-new believer? What was it like? Were you thrilled to know Christ, rejoicing that you were saved and had your sins forgiven? Were you eager to tell others about the Lord? Was your time spent in the Bible very precious, as you discovered many life-changing truths? Was prayer a delight? Was it a great blessing to gather with other believers at every opportunity? Was sin especially disturbing to you, so [...]

The New Testament Chapter by Chapter | 1 Peter 4-5

By: Daniel Goepfrich Suffering for Christ Chapter four picks up immediately with the practical application for Christians based on Christ’s suffering: stay focused on God’s will rather than our fleshly desires. Peter’s audience had been saved long enough that their lifestyles should have reflected the life change (1 Peter 4:3-6). Another encouragement to live in a godly manner is that Jesus’ return is imminent. This lifestyle should include prayer, hospitality, and Christian service. 1 Peter 4:11 ends with a benediction leading many [...]

Jumpstart: A Dispensational Devotional | Don’t Be a Dead Sea Christian!

By: George Zellar John 7:37-39 The Dead Sea has various inlets such as the Jordan River from the north, the Arnon River from the east and the Kidron from the west, but it has no outlets. It also has no fishermen (that is, not until the millennium–Ezekiel 47:8-10). No fish survive in this lifeless and heavily-salted body of water. A great deal of water flows into this area, but nothing flows out: “I looked upon a sea and lo! ’Twas Dead, Although by Hermon’s snows [...]

DPH Releases Groundbreaking Historical Work Supporting Dispensational Thinking.

TAOS, N.M.—Dispensational Publishing House, Inc. is honored to have worked with author and long-time Bible teacher James C. Morris to release "Ancient Dispensational Truth: Refuting the Myth that Dispensationalism is New." One of the most common accusations and stereotypes about dispensational thought is that it is new. Proponents of this myth typically claim that John Nelson Darby (1800-1882) was the first to teach the dispensational system of Biblical interpretation. Despite the fact that the accusation is unscholarly and easily refuted, the myth continues. [...]

The New Testament Chapter by Chapter | 1 Peter 2-3

By: Daniel Goepfrich Being Godly in an Ungodly World Chapter two best starts in 1 Peter 2:4. (The first three verses connect to chapter one.) Here Peter laid out the reason to live properly in this world and gave some practical examples of what that should look like. His reason is very simple: our relation to Jesus. Peter portrayed Jesus as a stone lying on the ground. For unbelievers, he is “A STUMBLING-STONE AND A ROCK TO TRIP OVER” (1 Peter 2:8). [...]

Jumpstart: A Dispensational Devotional | Imitating Men of God

By: George Zellar May we be... (1) like Abel, pursuing righteous works: Not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother’s righteous (1 John 3:12). (2) like Enoch, walking in daily fellowship with the Lord: By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had [...]

The New Testament Chapter by Chapter | 1 Peter 1

By: Daniel Goepfrich God's Eternal Protection Chapter one begins with a celebration of our salvation in Christ. Peter called it a “new birth,” a “living hope,” and “an inheritance imperishable, undefiled, and unfading” that “is reserved in heaven for [us]”(1 Peter 1:3-4). Additionally, those who are believers in Christ “are protected” for a deliverance that will come in the future (1 Peter 1:5). It was important that his readers knew of God’s eternal protection because Peter reminded them that it might be necessary [...]
