As I have mentioned before, I believe in the principals of dispensationalism, but I also believe that those principals are taken too far by many King James Bible Believers. One example of this is the classification of a book of the Bible to be not dispensational for us based on poor contextual evidence. In these cases, the main evidence is usually the fact that the book was written to the Jews, and that it contains information that does not line up with a doctrine the classifying individual holds to be true. This, however, is a backwards formula for classifying a book dispensationally. One cannot classify scripture based on presumed doctrine. The individual then runs the risk of validating false doctrine by twisting scripture. Instead, a thorough study of the book’s context should be conducted, comparing it to other portions of scripture.
I have deeply studied this topic before forming the beliefs that I am presenting today. To prove that I am not ignorant on the topic of dispensationalism, I will be quoting from Dr. Douglas D. Stauffer’s book, One Book Rightly Divided while presenting my case. This is not the only book I have read on this topic, but it is one that is accepted by many advocates of dispensationalism (and it serves as a good example for the points I would like to make).
In this video, I will be examining what Dr. Stauffer believes about the application of faith across different dispensations. I will be comparing what is stated in his book against the truth of the word of God. Then, in a future video, I will also examine what Dr. Stauffer says about the dispensational classification of the book of Hebrews (and how that lines up with the truth found in the word of God). Please join me in the video to learn more on this topic.
