Hey, just wanted to see how some of you view Dispensationalism. I am studying it at present. Am reading Larkin's book "Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth" I do not subscribe completely to Dispensationalism. While I see some of its tenets as true I believe that alot of words have been taken incorrectly and a system of theology built on a false foundation of that interpretation of scripture. However, I do not call Dispensationalists false teachers, heretics and will certainly not separate from them in fellowship. As a matter of fact that church I go to is Dispensational. The spirt there is one of love and understanding and that is why I enjoy it so much. My reading of the scriptures and understanding of it allows me to avoid some of the pitfalls of Dispensationalism. I also understand the intent of Dispensationalists and its not to intentionally cause folks to be deceived about the coming of the Lord. Thus so much for wolves in sheep's clothing mentality that some take about Dispensationalists. I would like hear from you folks on this system of theology. Its definitely a system and like any system I think that it has some fatal flaws. Larkin believed in the Gap Theory for instance but my church doesnt not fully support that position. Thus learn this rule - Dispensationalists are not in complete agreement on scripture (noone is right?) and thus there is no ONE and ONLY version of it out there to be had. Again, a loving caring attitude is the key to dealing with anyone that you dont agree with. I am thankful for the many examples of kindness that have been shown by my pastors, past and present that have shown me how to deal with those that do not take the same position as myself. I beleive that reacting incorrectly to another person's position is often as wrong as those the hold a incorrect position! Christ taught us to love one another, to rebuke when needed but in trying to help someone to understand a position we take the kind road is much preferable to the "RIGHT" road. It is possible to be both right and firmly rebuke at the same time but with the right spirit at that same time. I believe that Jesus showed us that in dealing with the Pharisees.
