Mike Vlach on the Continuity of Dispensationalism

Michael Vlach has written an excellent outline of the continuity of the Old Testament in the New Testament within Dispensational theology. It is worth the read. There is nothing here that I would disagree with him on in this particular article. I would add, however, that Vlach comes from a modified classical view of dispensationalism, […]

Pretrib Obsession with Words, not Meaning…

I would rather spend my time responding to the few scholarly arguments that pretribs adduce. But we all know that pop-surface-level arguments work well on the pretrib masses.

More Evidence That We Will Soon Have to Go Underground With House Churches

Last week, I wrote on the Homosexual Gestapo. I said, “I can now see within two years that a Bible-Believing church will not be allowed to meet publicly for worship.
