I was saved in a dispensational church, and was a member of two of them for 18 years. During that time, I did not once hear taught several of the doctrines that are often said to be widespread in dispensationalism. Recently, I read from several sources that dispensationalism teaches two salvations: one for the gentiles, and a different one for the Jews in Israel. While I'm sure there are some extreme dispensationalists who believe this, I found the idea to be rather shocking, and if true, would likely qualify as heresy. Therefore I purchased the Systematic Theology by Lewis Sperry Chafer, who was the founder of Dallas Theological Seminary, one of the largest seminaries in the world, and the largest one that teaches dispensationalism. DTS graduates somewhere around 600 to 800 people a year, going back some 70 years or so. Chafer's Systemaic Theology has been taught at DTS since it was written over 50 years ago. If anywhere there was "mainstream" teaching of dispensationalism, it would be here. So here are some quotes from Chafer: "the individual Jew is now divinely reckoned to be as much in need of salvation as the individual Gentile (Rom. 3:9). These facts, related as they are to the present age-purpose—the calling out of the Church from both Jews and Gentiles alike (Eph. 3:6)—have no bearing upon the divine purpose for the coming kingdom age when, according to covenant promise, Israel will be saved and dwell safely in her own land (Deut. 30:3–6; Jer. 28:5–6; 33:15–17)." (Vol. 3, Page 105.) "it is also as clearly stated that no blood could ever avail for any remission of sin other than the blood of Christ. We conclude, therefore, that the nation Israel will yet be saved and her sins removed forever through the blood of Christ." (Vol. 3, Page 107.) "God is righteously free to act in behalf of sinners only on the ground of the fact that the Lamb of God has taken away their sins. A major objective in the death of Christ is, therefore, the national salvation of Israel." (Vol. 3, Page 108.) "National election, too often confused with individual election (note the Apostle’s warning to the nation Israel on this point as recorded in Rom. 9:4–13), anticipates no more than the ultimate blessing of Israel as a nation and their national preservation unto that end. Ahab and Jezebel along with Abraham and Sarah, were partakers alike in Israel’s national election. However, a judgment day for Israel is predicted when multitudes will be rejected (Ezek. 20:33–44; Dan. 12:1–3). There is, nonetheless, a recognition in the Bible of a spiritual remnant in all Israel’s generations; but that spiritual group shared no additional covenants, their distinction being due to their willingness to be more faithful to those relations to Jehovah which were the privileges extended to all in Israel. The remnant out of Israel in this age is “a remnant according to the election of grace” (Rom. 11:5), and is composed of those who are saved by faith in Christ, and therefore partake of the heavenly calling which pertains to the Church. It is not until a Deliverer comes out of Zion that all Israel will be saved (Rom. 11:27), and that salvation will not only be unto the realization of all their national, earthly covenants, but also unto the taking away of their sins (cf. Jer. 31:34). In the present time, as above stated, only a remnant out of Israel are being saved as individuals, which is according to the divine election in grace and unto the heavenly glory of the Church." (Vol. 3, Page 189-190.) "The receiving of eternal life will be for Israelites, as it is in the case of the Christian, a feature of salvation itself; and salvation for Israel is, in Romans 11:26–32, declared to be after the present age-purpose of the fulness of the Gentiles which is now accompanied by Israel’s blindness (verse 25), and at the time when “there shall come out of Sion the Deliverer,” who shall “turn away ungodliness from Jacob.” “This,” Jehovah says, “is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.” Isaiah anticipates the same great moment of Israel’s salvation when he predicts that a nation shall be born “at once.”" (Vol. 4, Page 26.) "There is great force added to the whole program of Israel’s regathering, repentance, restoration, salvation, and realization of her covenants, when, by the proper elimination of the present age, these are seen to follow directly upon the rejection of their King." (Vol. 4, Page 321-322.) Again, these quotes are from what could be called the most influential dispensational teacher of the last 100 years. I maintain that this is mainstream dispensationalism, not the extreme views that are sometime painted as dispensational. Putting these quotes together, Chafer is saying that in the future, most of the nation of Israel will repent at once, believe in Christ, and be saved by Jesus' blood. The last quote specifically mentions repentance. Therefore, while I admit there may be some that call themselves dispensational that would hold to two salvations, this does not represent the bulk of dispensational teachings in the last 70 years. Two salvations was never taught by Chafer. I am starting this post with the narrow purpose of defining what was taught about Israel & salvation, not any of the myraid of other things that have been beat to death on here in the past.
