The Great Mistake

Everybody makes mistakes. These many not necessarily be the same thing as sins. Commonly defined in the Wesleyan tradition, sin is "a willful transgression of a known law of God."

Mistakes are sometimes the result of ignorance. All Christians need the constant application of the cleansing Blood of Jesus Christ to flow over their souls in this regard.

God's cure for ignorance is enlightenment. Mistakes that are made through ignorance can become stepping stones to better things, when enlightenment comes and is embraced.

The "great mistake" we are talking about here is the rational fallacy of equating modern, popular dispensational premillennial end-time Bible prophecy teachings with one's understanding of what constitutes biblical fundamentalism. It is a great mistake to think that dispensational teaching somehow represents, or equals, a "fundamentalistic" approach to Scrpture.

This popular fallacy rides in on the assumption that dispensationalists interpret the Bible "literally," hence, in the most fundamental manner possible. It is quite easy to prove, however, that the above assumption is totally false.

We have demonstrated over and over again through the many articles published in this newsletter during the past twenty years the utter foolishness of the dispensational claim to a literal interpretation of the Bible. Dispensationalists interpret the Bible literally ONLY when to do so fits the mold of a preconceived theory that is constantly sought to be superimposed upon the Holy Scripture.

That preconceived theory is Sir Robert Anderson's idea of interpreting Daniel's prophecy of the Seventy Weeks. The logic of reality here is incontrovertible: academically block bust SRA's theory of interpreting the Seventy Weeks, and the whole of dispensational teaching is proved a scam.
