There is 'Hope',my friend. And 'He' will descend from the heavens one Day in great power and glory,with angels and saints accompanying Him,before a convicted world.

Gee...no wonder we dream of an armegeddon - being human IS VERY miserable. I see why our species has such a death wish.
You bible beaters have helped make the world a hellish place to live in, with all your own infighting and division that will bring on the very armegeddon you're crying about!
SMH...humans.
No moron, by the hands of Obama. And being human is not miserable, just being you is.

That's another side of this. You have ministries seeking to relocate Jews to Israel to 'hasten' the apocalypse(and thereby rapture- how selfish)- and only for those Jews to perish in the "Ultimate Holocaust"("Yeah, but they had it comin' to 'em" -some wag will say!). Height of antisemitism.

To answer your first question, according to the Dispensationalist(futurist view), I understand what is being promoted, but do not agree with it scripturally. I once held to a pre-tribulation rapture view, in a Darby-ist tradition, but do no longer. Do you realise where this view came from and how it was formulated?

Now ,the rest of your statement you seem to personalise, I realise you started this thread but all statements are not personally direct at you, so ,no offence meant. Threads really all become 'open forums'(for better or worse) as you've seen, there's no real 'monitor'. It's one reason I like blogging or content related forums.

So on that note I wasn't seeking your thoughts on a particular subject, but you can share them at will, it's all part of dialog.

So, again , if you'd like ,share them, anyone can do the same:)

Is Dispensationalism biblical?

According to influential author Charles Ryrie, whose views are perhaps the most representative of popular Dispensationalism, there are three “sine qua non,”(i.e. non-negotiables) of what constitutes Dispensationalism: a doxological view of history (i.e., with the ultimate purpose of glorifying God), a literal hermeneutic (i.e. method of interpreting the bible), and an ongoing distinction between the two peoples of God, Israel and the Church. A doxological purpose for all of history is certainly not unique to Dispensationalism, however, and is affirmed by many non-Dispensational theologians; so the question of whether or not Dispensationalism is biblical must hinge on what the bible says about the latter two points: its “literal” way of understanding the bible, particularly as it relates to Old Testament prophecies; and its insistence on two peoples of God.

Fortunately, the biblical evidence is not lacking for either of these questions: Dispensationalism teaches that all the promises made to Israel in the Old Testament must be fulfilled to ethnic Israel, in a literal way, that is, in a way that mandates the continuation of all the Old Testament types, regardless of whether or not the anti-types, or ultimate fulfillment of those types have come: for example, the physical land of Palestine must belong by divine right to the ethnic Jews, who will one day possess all its geographical borders in fulfillment of the prophecy of Israel's restoration. However, the bible explicitly declares that all those prophecies have already been fulfilled in the coming of Christ, and are for all who believe in Christ; the land promise made to Abraham is now too great to be fulfilled in the Middle East alone, and so Romans 4:13 says that he was promised to inherit the whole world; and his offspring who inherit it with him are not just believing ethnic Jews, but also his Gentile children by faith (Romans 4:11-17); in fact, all the promises made to Abraham (and to every Old Testament saint) were ultimately fulfilled in Christ, the true Seed of Abraham (2 Cor. 1:20; Gal. 3:16), and so they belong to all who are in Christ, and therefore a part of Abraham's seed (Gal.3:26-29). Further examples of how the New Testament interprets prophecies made to Israel, showing beyond doubt that they are now being fulfilled in the Church, include Acts 15:14-17; Hebrews 8; 10:14-18.

The second “sine qua non” of Dispensationalism, that there is an ongoing distinction between Israel and the Church, is likewise argued against throughout the New Testament, even as was anticipated in the Old Testament. To cite one of many possible examples, in Isaiah 66:18-24, the prophet looks ahead to a time when God would choose people from every nation, and make them his true priests and Levites; and in the New Testament, we find proof that this time has come. The New Testament passages that indicate that Christians are true Jews (some of them very explicitly) include these: Romans 2:28-29; 4:11-17; 9:6-8; Galatians 3:6-9, 26-29; 4:21-31; 6:16; Ephesians 2:11-22; 3:6; Phil. 3:3; 1 Pet. 2:9-10; Rev. 2:9. So then, these “sine qua non” of Dispensationalism prove to be utterly unbiblical and are explicitly argued against in the scriptures.

Precisely,we cannot 'play' the Holy Spirit, but must allow His working through us. We're only a messenger, He does the work in the hearts and lives of others. Too many believers I see trying to force a commitment from another. I don't accuse you of such, you are measured and tactful from what I've seen at places like WINLAC,Kudos.

I have found it even more impossible to post on Christian Forums and threads as it is nothing but a Atheist troll firing squad. Although I need not post on religious sites exclusively, it is my desire as it sharpens one's skills and knowledge and leads to further studies.
This is exactly to what I previously referred:
2 Cor. 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
and
Col. 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
and
1 Tim. 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
That was my meaning, o brother.
I agree with the Word, and I hope we have a better understanding of one another(smiles).

*SL - No, I don't do that either. With that being said, no one has to guess what path 'I've' chosen...
Sen -Who did Jesus rub shoulders with the most?
*SL -Exactly, that's why most Christians are here...
Sen-Com'on Angel, what are you here for? Do you think what goes on at WINLAC is REALLY doing anything to advance the Gospel, really now?
*SL said -Yes I do... & that's the main reason I am here... Just maybe, there is one lost lonely soul out here that could really use a friend, not just gather nuts for the winter... Don't think me so naive. I know the difference...
Sen-With guys claiming Christ asking women if they shave their pubic
region or have an 'air-strip', and other sexual laced innuendos?
*SL said- I see that being posted, even some to me. No, it's not right, and if I don't engage, it might be an example to other's of how a Christian is supposed to act.
Sen -Look, "End Times" -ahem- Eschatology is NOT cast in stone.
*SL said- I beg to differ. I do believe it is written in stone...We just don't know when it will happen...
Sen-Not looking to have contention,
*SL said- Agreed, civil is good, not circles...
Sen -but this is a personal interest of mine , the main reason I came to Topix some 4 yrs ago now(to dispel Harold Camping's date setting)
*SL said- Ya think... He's a coo-coo bird...NO ONE CAN PREDICT THE DATE OF GODS RETURN...
By the way, I do know that some are friends on WINLAC, and that they do talk behind the scenes. As it should be. I Might be young, but I'm not naive...
I also like to post to most of them regardless of their faith, or lack thereof. The men are funny, and most of the ladies are sweet. I have many, many Atheist friends... We laugh at each other, and can all learn from each other, as well. I don't blast them for what they say, even though the trolls will hang on to each, and every word. Lol..
At times some posts sounds a little bizarre, but then again, maybe what I say sounds bizarre to them...
Sen-If you'd like to dialog about it I'm more than will, and enjoy it:)
*SL said - Sure, a civil non-circling dialog is great. But if you partial post what 'I' post to fit your agenda... I won't reply...
*SL -ps.. Just so you know, there are a couple that do talk to me behind the scenes as you put it, and want to know more about GOD. This is why I am here, it's not to win a popularity contest. I am a messenger from God, and not ashamed to say it.
*SL -One day, God will let me know my mission here is finished... Then you wont have to worry about being challenged by this silly little Christian girl...:) Love in the Lord to you!
Sincerely,*Daughter of the Most High God Almighty! In Jesus Name, Amen... SL
Angel, I wish you'd just be direct, instead of choosing a passive-aggressive route. You well understand what I meant, but spin to your favour.

If you have ought with a brother/sister in Christ, what's the proper prescription in settling the issue,really?
Matthew wrote:
<quoted text>
"If one of my followers sins against you, go and point out what was wrong. But do it in private, just between the two of you. If that person listens, you have won back a follower.

But if that one refuses to listen, take along one or two others. The Scriptures teach that every complaint must be proven true by two or more witnesses.

If the follower refuses to listen to them, report the matter to the church. Anyone who refuses to listen to the church must be treated like an unbeliever or a tax collector."
I'll just leave it at that, I have no ill will towards you,

Have a blest day...
