In other words this forum is intended to primarily discuss dispensationalism from the perspective that it is the correct biblical view. That does not mean that the view cannot be questioned or debated, instead it simply means this forum will not be a place for those that disagree to grandstand or monopolize the forum or mock the position that this forum represents.
If a person is not following the above stated rules they will be removed from the Theology Club and will no longer be able to make posts in this forum.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation. :up:
Yes you were.
It is a wonderful feeling, isn't it!!!
I remember when it happened. Was reading, and struggling, with Stam, THINGS THAT DIFFER. I'd been told to feel free to bleed red ink all over it, and I had. After reading it, I told my wife "I will NEVER believe what these people believe." (that was a true IFB talking). But there was something to it I couldn't put my finger on, something I recognized as true that, I confess, I wanted to be able to refute but couldn't yet, so I was being a stubborn bulldog about it.
Was on break at work, sitting outside on a bench as the sun was setting. Was reading BAPTISM AND THE BIBLE and some point he made hit me between the eyes and it's literally like a light came on. And here I am.
There's a lot of material out there that can help someone access the Mystery if they're looking into it seriously...even to disprove it, but also if they're honest with themselves about actually considering what they're reading. Some are better, some too dense for a newcomer. The one that sticks in my mind that I later read, which I said, "THIS is something to help someone else," was Bob Hill's little booklet on the Rapture. That was before I'd even heard of the Open view but I don't think there was anything from that angle in that book. Anyway, even for someone who already was MAD, it was eye-opening (obviously it likely wouldn't help anyone who didn't already believe in the Rapture). I gave away my one copy long ago and wish I had more. No idea if they're still available somewhere. Darkish cover, cheaply printed, but worth its weight in gold.
