Dispensationalism Described

Posted in Dictionary,Dispensationalism by wandren on 4 September 2007

From Wikipedia, Dispensationalism is described as “a form of premillennialism which teaches biblical history as a number of successive “economies” or “administrations”, called “dispensations”, each of which emphasizes the discontinuity of the Old Testament covenants God made with His various peoples,” which is held by many Protestant and Conservative Christian groups.

“Dispensationalism seeks to address what many see as opposing theologies between the Old Testament and New Testament. Its name comes from the fact that it sees biblical history as best understood in light of a series of dispensations in the Bible.

“Dispensationalist beliefs often underlie the religious and political movement of Christian Zionism… Some dispensationalists teach that churches that do not insist on Biblical literalism as they deem appropriate are in fact part of the Great Apostasy.”
