  1. Why is this only addressed to those against dispensational hermeneutics?

    Do you think that only dispensational hermeneutics has an answer?

  2. How is Darby/Larkin Dispensationalism the key to unlocking this passage? I have zero problem understanding this passage without that particular framework. However, I would love for this who ARE Dip’s (just too long to spell…I promise) to explain if Jesus and Paul taught about two separate Kingdoms. Also, why does Stephen mention the Ekklesia in the wilderness during the days of Moses?
    I have tons more questions, but I’d love to hear the answers for those two to start with.

  3. I would agree. I don’t. See hoe dispensationist understanding are of any point here. glGod always has a d always will call those his whose confession include at least trying to do what pleased him rather than yourselves. just like a child strive to please their parent.

  4. I’m neither dispensationalist nor covenant theologian; like a dispy I see that God has two distinct peoples, so He gives different commands for Israel and a “new Covenant” which is “not the same” as the old one.

  5. God has the seed of Abraham. The seed of David his earthly elect people. The seed of Abraham inclusive of also those of the faith of Abraham. There is the newly created people of God in the Old Testament, Israel. There is the newly created people of God in the New Testament, the Church. The difference is of form and function. The city if the New Jerusalem 12 apostles 12 tribes = 24 elders. I believe in the unity of God’s elect. The organism of organic unity is expressed in the different forms and functions Israel takes on itself in theocratically distinct functions from the New Testament Church. I am a Reformed, Covenantal, Dispensational Premillennialist.

  6. please lets stick to the original question: Could those who are against dispensational hermeneutics explain 1Samuel 15:3
    Now go and smite Amalek and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass

  7. Ok… Samuel told Saul that the Lord said for him(Saul) to go and strike Amelek and devote to destruction all that they have etc.

    I don’t see a problem for anyone outside or inside of dispensational theology to answer that, but it seems to obvious an answer.
