SPURGEON SPEAKS AGAINST DISPENSATIONALISM

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), a contemporary of John Nelson Darby (1800-1882), spoke against the Dispensationalism taught by Darby…

“Distinctions have been drawn by certain exceedingly wise men (measured by their own estimate of themselves), between the people of God who lived before the coming of Christ, and those who lived afterwards. We have even heard it asserted that those who lived before the coming of Christ do not belong to the church of God!

We never know what we shall hear next, and perhaps it is a mercy that these absurdities are revealed at one time, in order that we may be able to endure their stupidity without dying of amazement. Why, every child of God in every place stands on the same footing; the Lord has not some children best beloved, some second-rate offspring, and others whom he hardly cares about.

These who saw Christ’s day before it came, had a great difference as to what they knew, and perhaps in the same measure a difference as to what they enjoyed while on earth meditating upon Christ; but they were all washed in the same blood, all redeemed with the same ransom price, and made members of the same body.

Israel in the covenant of grace is not natural Israel, but all believers in all ages. Before the first advent, all the types and shadows all pointed one way —they pointed to Christ, and to him all the saints looked with hope. Those who lived before Christ were not saved with a different salvation to that which shall come to us. They exercised faith as we must; that faith struggled as ours struggles, and that faith obtained its reward as ours shall”.

Charles Suprgeon

    Excellent…I wish more knew and understood about this. Thank you.

    This serious error must be corrected with direct teaching from God’s word for all of the believers caught up in Dispensationalism that believe its a true interpretation of Scripture. Most people who consider themselves as Evangelical Christians believe this system, because its all they’ve ever learned in their churches from their equally deceived pastors, who they think are godly and trustworthy. Compounding the issue are Reformed Christians/pastors who know the problem, but don’t want to fully contend for the faith; that this systematic error somehow doesn’t have many implications for much more error which keeps getting propagated in every generation.

    Let’s pray that the Lord will help His sheep see clearly and that He will raise up courageous and compassionate teachers who are not afraid to stir things up by challenging Dispensationalism from the Scriptures, as well as its own history and origins.

      Dispensational teaching has taken over the Evangelical church. I began studyiing this topic many years ago because of a relative who embraced Dispensationalism to it’s extreme (hyper-dispensationalism). Dispensationalism and the Ecumenism of embracing Roman Catholicism as genuine Christianity are two great heresies of our time.
