COMENTS ABOUT JOHN DARBY Date: 01 Sep 2003 Time: 08:52:26 Comments Darby was, of course a spiritual moron. But the important spiritual truths that dispensationalists fail to recognize are also unrecognized by preterists. Theologians of every stripe appear incapable of understanding the two most important facts of the Bible, namely, that the hopelessly fallen natural nation of Israel was spiritually regenerated in the moment of Christ's resurrection in the spring of AD 30, when the new and spiritual and eternal Israel appeared, and that the hopelessly fallen natural world was spiritually regenerated in the moment of the resurrection of the dead in Christ at his parousia at the end of the true first century (in autumn of AD 96), when the new and spiritual and eternal world of Rev. 21 and 22 appeared. The spiritual judgment of the world at the end of the first century fulfilled the natural judgment of the world by the flood at the end of Noah's last 100 pre-flood years. Unfortunately, spiritual regeneration holds no appeal for the natural mind of the scholar.
Date: 12 Sep 2003 Time: 10:22:08 Comments I find the post above dated "01 Sep 2003" and stating "Darby was, of course a spiritual moron" demonstrates the true character of thought that is typical of spiritualizers. This vain impression of one's own "spiritual" insights into things is the "puffing up" and "vain philosophies" that Paul warns us about. Paul tells us to hold to sound doctrine, doctrine is derived from study and study is at the heart of scholarship. It is sad that what is passing for spirituality today finds no value scholarship. Judging from this person's disparaging characterization of "the scholar" (i.e. Darby) and subsequent launch into subjective and unverifiable claims about the “spiritual” fulfillment of all things, it is no wonder that he/she thinks of Darby as a moron.
Date: 23 Sep 2003 Time: 20:11:33 Comments "Sound doctrine is derived from study," says he/she. But study of what? The lies of Darby and Scofield and their present-day successors? Sound doctrine is derived ONLY from an understanding of complete and consistent typology. Everything else is subjective. Without any supporting evidence, Scofield blatantly claimed that only the first four of the seven feasts of Lev. 23 were fulfilled in the first century. That's false, Christ-demeaning and terribly harmful. All seven of the feasts were fulfilled in the first century. But dispensationalists have no interest in studying those matters. They read "The Late Great Planet Earth" and some of the notes that Scofield had the nerve to print on the pages of the Bible and they become instant experts on the Bible. Sounds spiritually moronic to me.

There is nothing in heaven your (adamic) nature would like."....... "The cross of Christ has closed the history of the old man, and of all its associations." Now beloved friends, are your hearts ready to accept such a Chistianity? The flesh clings to what the flesh likes--clings to the world and that which Satan has power over us by,...
