  5. Eschatology
    • Premillennialism
      • Premillennialism, in Christian eschatology, is the belief that Jesus will physically return to the earth (the Second Coming) before the Millennium, a literal thousand-year golden age of peace.
      • The doctrine is called “premillennialism” because it holds that Jesus’ physical return to earth will occur prior to the inauguration of the Millennium.
      • Premillennialism is based upon a literal interpretation of Revelation 20:1–6 in the New Testament, which describes Jesus’ reign in a period of a thousand years.
    • Amillennial
      • However, the premillennialist view is not shared by all Christians. Mainline denominations such as Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and Catholic are generally amillennial and interpret this passage of Revelation as pertaining to the present time, when Christ reigns in Heaven with the departed saints; such an interpretation views the symbolism of Revelation as referring to a spiritual battle rather than a physical battle on earth. Amillennialists do not view the millennium mentioned in Revelation as pertaining to a literal thousand years, but rather as symbolic, and see the kingdom of Christ as already present in the church beginning with the Pentecost in the first book of Acts.

      • Not just to Church of England

          • I know not a single instance where this controversial spirit did not exist in greater or less force. It is not for me to say that there are no exceptions to this rule; but I do advisedly say, that I am unacquainted with any single case to the contrary. This controversial feeling, often degenerating into something resembling regular quarrels, is the chronic condition of Plymouth Brethrenism.
          • So great, indeed, is their disposition to engage in controversy, often ending in something like a quarrel, that it would be a thing quite new to see two of their number remain together for many minutes without a decided disagreement on some one point or other.
          • A through Pope, though he will not admit it ( Spurgeon in relating to Darby )
          • Plymouth Brethren have no feeling wherever their principles are concerned. I know indeed of no sect or denomination so utterly devoid of kindness of heart. It is the most selfish religious system with which I am acquainted. It is entirely wrapped up in itself.
          • It recognizes no other denomination, whether the Church of England, or either of the Nonconformist denominations, as a church of Christ. Mr. Darby has again and again said in print, as well as written in private, that those who belong to his party in the metropolis, constitute the only church of Christ in London. . . .

    • Robert Cameron
      • Robert Cameron Wrote
        • My brother, I am a constant reader of my Bible, and I soon found that what I was taught to believe 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 Müeller, a contemporary and one-time supporter of Darby quoted by Robert Cameron in his book, Scriptural Truth About the Lord’s Return, pages 146-147
    • Good Point
      • Mueller makes the point
      • And, I think he makes a good point
      • When people start studying the bible on their own, they never find the Dispensationalist system
      • It is a manufactured position
      • It is superimposed on the bible
      • It happened to me
        • The late great planet earth

    • Reason

      • He was unaccountable and unchecked in the use of Power
      • Differing views on non-essentials were not tolerated

      • No Articles of the Christian faith kept the central doctrines in the forefront, or provided a reference point for doctrinal discussions
  15. Dr. Francis Schaeffer
    • Terminal generation
      • This is that fallacy
      • Each event in our time is the fulfillment of that prophecy in the bible
  16. Ronald M. Henzel
    • Books
      • Darby, Dualism, and the decline of Dispensionalism
    • Quotes
      • Probably no Christian thinker in the last 200 years has so affected the way in which the English-speaking Christians view the faith, and yet has received so little recognition as John Nelson Darby
