Scofield Reference Bible

For some reason, I just felt the desire to have a copy of the Scofield Reference Bible, the historic study Bible of Dispensationalism. I did a quick search and found the 1917 verion available for free use online at www.StudyLight.org.

Are you dispensationalist? Interesting. I used to be a fundamentalist pretribulationist rapturist, but left that approach like 15 yrs ago. Emergents don't endorse normally this eschatologic approach, that's why i found it "interesting" that it is a "post-methodist" who brings-up the issue.

Be blessed

Hi Armando. I would not call myself a Dispensationalist. I am a posttribulational premillenialist though. This week at least ;)

Jason, please explain to me in simple language what a "posttribulational premillenialist" is. I have never heard the term. Thanks.

I am firmly a pan-milleniest!

It means that the Church will be on earth when the Great Tribulation takes place, and that when Christ comes he will reign for a literal thousand years on earth from Jerusalem before the Final Judgment, which will followed by the New Heavens and the New Earth.

Some additional information for armchair theologians. (I believe ever beliver who ever asks questions about God, Jesus, sin, judgement, heaven, hell, etc. has become a theologian wheter they like it or not!)

Armando,

As a fundamentalist, it is really hard to stick with a theology without starting to learn Hebrew and Greek.

I'm not a professional clergy just a layman (sometimes an immature one at that).

Most emergents do not have a defined systematic or pratical theology that I can embrace with heart and mind.

Sometimes after studying theology, mathematics, or philosophy I remember that I must become like a like child to receive Jesus and his kingdon.
