 Re:

Reply to axe1338: Axe-actly right! Ephesians 2:11-18 is the answer to those who would split the body "asunder." If you disagree with them they accuse of being a preterist (I don't know what that is either) but they (preterists) don't believe in the 1000 year reign of Christ, so I know that I don't belong in that camp! When St.Paul talks about the temple of God, does he ever call it a building? They even have animals killed and offered in the Kingdom Age, I just haven't quitebeen able to swa1low that yet, especially since God was already sick of them all the back in Isa. 1:11/Hebrews 10:6, He can do it if He likes, I just think that it is a thing of the past, and the animals in the kingdom age are all tame. God will sort it out. Tractsman

 Re:

Thank you for the feedback brothers, I just would like to add that there are many great bible teachers who hold to a dispensational view. So we can't throw out the baby with the bath water.

 Re:

Yet Another question someone might help me with was Watchman Nee and Witness Nee dispentationalism. I ordered a bible New Testament only for Free from a website because who can turn down a free bible right? It's call the recovery version if anyone is curious, but it has charts of the different dispensations and what not and has tons of study notes, the reason I ask about Watchman Nee and Witness Nee is because Witness Nee seems to be the founder of this version or at least he is the one that explains it in the beginning of the bible. Any help on this would be appreciated THANKS!

God Bless,
Matthew

 Re:

I say this in all seriousness brother, but you should burn that copy of the Bible. Witness Lee is one of the greatest heretics of our generation.

 Re:

Wow burning a bible that is pretty serious brother, I will take your advice though what made me leary of the whole thing was it seems Witness Nee's words and study notes were more than the very Word of God.

 Re:

Witness Lee has practically deified himself in his teachings, and has created a church that centers itself around him, and Watchman Nee. Watchman Nee needs to be read with a grain of salt. Witness Lee needs to be avoided altogether.

Quote:
Each of the times that the term dispensation is used scripturally it is the greek oikonomia which does not mean a division or special period of time in which God deals one way or another, but rather speaks of stewardship or administration of a particular thing that God has entrusted one with.



I have often thought of dispensation when I hear Americans refer to Kennedy Adminstration, or the Obama Administration. That is a pretty good use of the idea of oikonomia.

The BlueLetterBible shows the use of oikonomia, literally house-rule, in

Quote:
but to me one can simply study the Word of God in prayer and take it for what it simply says without the philosophical constructs that various theological points of view bring to the table. It is meant to be a life giving word. I think theologians often turn it into a dead academic study. So in the literal interpretation aspect I probably fall more in the dispensational camp.



This is exactly what some who are called 'theologians' do.

In fact, no one is absolutely 100% literal in their interpretation. It is all a matter of degree.

and BTW for many years I was a card-carrying Scofield-ite. I used my loose-leaf Scofield Reference Bible right through 3 years of Bible College. (and I still have it here, right in front of me, on my Bible Bookshelf!) I was reckoned something of a specialist on the Pre-Trib, Pre-Mill model. At a time in my life I began to read my Scofield more carefully and found myself saying... but I'm not convinced. That's where I stand in relation to most eschatology time schedules... but I'm not convinced.

I am in the exact same boat...same story.
