Some Thoughts on Dispensationalism from a Class on Dispensationalism Today we finished a 15-week course on Dispensationalism at The Master’s Seminary. This was a Th.M. course with a roundtable-discussion format (actually our table was rectangular but you get the idea). The students and I worked through several books both pro and con about Dispensationalism. I do not want to speak for everyone in the class but I want to offer some general observations about how the class viewed Dispensationalism. Dispensationalism has undergone significant developments throughout the years but Dispensationalism has a core set of beliefs that have remained stable, namely: (1) historical-grammatical hermeneutics should be applied to all aspects of Scripture including both testaments; (2) the NT does not reinterpret the OT; (3) OT promises and covenants that have not been fulfilled yet must be literally fulfilled in the future; and (4) there will be both a salvation and restoration of the nation Israel in the future.

[NCT] Same as Dispensationalism. *We think some of the old Dispensationalists did believe in a Covenant of Redemption within the Trinity, but we are not sure and I don't know about the new modified Dispensationalists. [CT] The eternal Covenant of Redemption was within the Trinity to effect election. *I don't know if I would agree with that, and this may be a caricature on my part, as I'm not 100% sure about this. [CT] No man has ever been saved by works, but only by grace. Back to Home Page
