Is Pastor/Teacher Charles e Whisnant a Dispensationalist?


I grew up believing in the term dispensations, which to me meant that there were seven periods of history in which God dealt with men in different ways.  To me they were just period of times in which history was divided.

Now I will admit that the idea that God dealt with men in different ways in the sense of presenting salvation I believed.  My thought was that God saying to Adam and Eve and Cain and Able about what they need to do  to go to heaven or been saved, or receiving salvation was different than what Noah hear or even Abraham.

So how did Adam present to his family the means whereby they were going to be come a “Christian” in our term today?

So how did Noah preach for 120 years  while he was  building the Ark  about how to enter into the Ark for salvation?

So how did Abraham tell his family how God wanted them to believe and have faith in God to become a new creature in Christ?

So how did Moses and Aaron tell the people about God’s saving redemption?

I was  taught too that there would be a future time in which Jesus would be coming back and the Christians would be raptured out of the earth and would go to heaven.  Then there would be a period of Tribulation of seven years.  And at the end of that time there would be a 1000 year Kingdom of God.  Then there would be the New Earth and the New Heaven.



  • is an evangelical, futurist, Biblical interpretation that understands God to have related to human beings in different ways under different Biblical covenants in a series of “dispensations,” or periods in history.  Wikipedia
  • The theology of dispensationalism consists of a distinctive eschatological end times perspective, as all dispensationalists hold to

premillennialism and most hold to a pretribulation rapture. Dispensationalists believe that the nation of Israel is distinct from the Christian Church,] and that God has yet to fulfill his promises to national Israel. These promises include the land promises, which in the future world to come result in a millennial kingdom and Third Temple where Christ, upon his return, will rule the world from Jerusalem for a thousand years. In other areas of theology, dispensationalists hold to a wide range of beliefs within the evangelical and fundamentalist spectrum.

Well if this is what is meant by the term than I am one:Charles 11 10 13
