Hyper-Dispensationalism doctrine teaches the exclusivity of a mental assent to 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 for salvation. This teaching denies the new birth. According to Hyper-Dispensational teaching, the new birth, the Gospels, and the words of Jesus Christ were not for the church, but only for the Jews. This is only a small glimpse of the many nefarious teachings of Hyper-Dispensationalism. Dispensational doctrine was first introduced in the 1800’s by John Nelson Darby and was further propagated by Cyrus I. Scofield in the Scofield Study Bible.
In the words of evangelist George Mueller… “My brother, I am a constant reader of my Bible, and I soon found that what I was taught to believe (by Darby’s doctrine) did not always agree with what my Bible said. I came to see that I must either part company with John Darby, or my precious Bible, and I chose to cling to my Bible and part from Mr. Darby.” – George Mueller
This Bible says…
AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
John 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Faith lies in the name of the person on whom we believe; the uttered name contains the whole confession of faith.
The name itself, moreover, is no other than that of the historically manifested Logos.
Believers, from their knowledge of God in Christ (John 17:3), become children of God, by being born of God (comp. John 3:3; 1 John 3:9), i.e. through the moral transformation and renewal of their entire spiritual nature by the Holy Ghost;
Believing in his Name…
The Name here especially present to the writer is the Logos, the full revelation of the essence, character, and activity, of God.
To believe in, or on, is more than mere acceptance of a statement.
John 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
All – John The Baptist took up the work of the prophets, as respects their preparation for the universal extension of the divine call (Isaiah 49:6). His message was to men, without regard to nation, sect, descent, or other considerations.
