Once more Mr. L. W. of Spokane raises further questions and offers criticisms the esteemed editor and undersigned deem worthy of answer. But as Mr. W.’s letter is rather lengthy for the Question Box, brief excerpts will be taken from it with answer made as concisely as possible. It had been said (TSB, Mar. 15, 1967, P. 287), “the historic creeds and theological systems contain nothing of” Dispensationalism.

What we have been maintaining, according to Scripture, is that God has but one people in all dispensations, and that therefore, O. and N.T. saints are identified by the same name. This is borne out in the following. “One shall say, ‘I am the Lord’s’; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob, and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and surname himself by the name of Israel.” (Isa.

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrine of devils” (v. 1). Or the words may be rendered, “Now the Spirit speaks distinctly that in the later times some will apostatize from the faith, holding the mind toward deceitful spirits and doctrines from demons.” We live in days of departure and defection from right. Men are prone to the left, to the evil, corrupt and dishonest.

“Turn off the main highway at Morganstown or Hickory, if you plan to visit Valdese. Take the road down into the valley. The little North Carolina town, as you approach it, looks for all the world like a picture of northern Italy. There are the white houses, the red tiled roofs; the rolling vineyards. But it is an American town, too, with prosperous farms, commercial bakeries and a thriving hosiery industry.”¹ There are also Waldensian colonies, about 20,000 strong, in Uruguay and Argentina. Especially are these Valdese people, as they are known, to be found in the Piedmont Valley of...

This is the theme of Psalm 1191152 where we read,Concerning Thy testimonies, I have known of old that Thou hast founded them forever. Here we have, I. Principle Truth, II. Permanent Foundation, and III. Personal Experience. These words appear in the nineteenth of the twenty-two octrains of Psalm 119, that section in which each of its eight verses begins with the Hebrew letter qÅ쳌th.

“For so spoke Jehovah unto me in the being strong of the hand (of God impelling me) and dissuaded (disciplined) me from going in the way of this people, saying, ‘Do not call conspiracy (treason) everything which this people shall call conspiracy (treason), and its fear fear ye not, nor be awed (by their line). Jehovah Tsebhaoth himself sanctify ye, as He (is) your fear, and He your terror” (v. 11-13).

Already we have made a rather lengthy appraisal of five articles on the Campus Crusade for Christ in TSB, Vol. 45, pp. 68, 89, 132, 152, 189. But since there are so many other similar organizations, some brief attention may be given them. They are not any more based on the primitive and reformed faith of the church of all ages than the one referred to above, but must be put down as based on the semi-Pelagian and Arminian philosophies. For example, this goes for theYouth-for-Christ movement. Billy Graham (see TSB, Vol. 42, pp.

The undersigned was born, baptized and raised in a Presbyterian church where Dispensationalism had crept in and imbued him with its teaching. By it he became acquainted with a certain class of “Bible teachers” who boast that they understand, interpret and teach the Bible literally. They emphasize this in such a way as to give the impression that they especially for this reason meet one of the principal tests of orthodoxy.

Our last installment provided evidence that Billy Graham loves to be a great mixer with modernists and ecclesiastical liberals, in fact, that he himself disclaims. Fundamentalism and insists he is a Liberal. The emphasis of the previous article was primarily on the ministry of Graham, while his doctrine was not particularly pin-pointed. Most of Graham’s’ critics take him to task chiefly for his methods, rather than for his teaching: Fundamentalists contend that Graham is wrong in the former; but right in the latter. He is basically right and scriptural in doctrine, they say.
