Dispensational Prophecy Myths Busted

Gary DeMar recently debated Jim Fletcher, author of It’s the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine) and director of Prophecy Matters, on whether or not modern Israel is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy. In preparation for this debate, Gary wrote a new book titled 10 Popular Prophecy Myths Exposed. This book lays out some of the most popular dispensational teachings and refutes them from God’s Word.

    Gary, Can you tell us more about your latest book? What is its full title, and can it be ordered on That's where I buy books. In Erie Scott R. Harrington

    Friends, My mistake. It was Greg Bahnsen and Kenneth L. Gentry's book, "House Divided: The Break-up of Dispensational Theology", that I was thinking of. Not a book by Gary DeMar. DeMar's book on End Times FIction is good reading, though. In Erie PA Scott R. Harrington

  3. Scott R. Harrington says:

    Dear friends, It seems clear from the books I have read regarding dispensationalism from a non-dispensationalist perspective, that dispensationalism is an error. It may not be the worst heresy, but it is a heresy. I think Gary DeMar's book "House Divided: The Break-up of Dispensational Theology" illustrates this well, and offers a better view of eschatology than the dispensationalists do. Take care.

    Friends, For those of you who used to believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, what made you believe that doctrine? Were you persuaded by Hal Lindsey's book "The Late Great Planet Earth", and other pre-tribulation rapture books? What verse or verses in the New Testament persuaded you that the rapture will not be pre-tribulation, but after the tribulation? In Erie PA Scott R. Harrington

  5. Scott R. Harrington says:

    Dear Friends, I learned a lot about what the Bible actually means and teaches by reading Gary DeMar's and Kenneth L. Gentry's books (some of them). I think the jury is still out regarding whether or not all of the New Testament books were written before 70 A.D. The Bible refutes any form of false futurism, such as Dispensationalism and Premillennialism, as Chiliasm was banned forever and for everyone Christian by the Second Ecumenical Council of 381 AD. But a false preterism will not do, either. Christ has not returned to earth yet. (Ed Stevens of Bradford, PA, disagrees, and he teaches that Christ returned in 70 A.D.). It is true, as "Dora" wrote, there will be no "rapture" (that is word Christians should not use in their theology), but there will be a catching up in the clouds to meet the LORD in the air when Christ returns to earth IN THE FUTURE. Dispensational views of the FUTURE are false; but CHRIST'S SECOND COMING IS STILL A FUTURE, COMING EVENT. In Erie, PA Scott R. Harrington

  6. Dora says:

    In the last days there will be MANY FALSE prophets. Anyone needs to go by the BIBLE. Some are teaching there will be NO RAPTURE. The Bible does not say the word rapture but there is a catching away of God's people and to me that is "rapture". Don't take ANY ONE's word. READ the Bible and discern for yourself what is going to happen in the end time.

    I got all excited but the book shows backordered ? When will it be out ?

    Dear Brother Gary, Peace.

    Please use your videos to give new info, not to repeat what you have written in your promo.

  9. As a youth I got caught up in Dispensational thought without knowing it, by reading the New Scofield Reference Bible. Later in life I was mercifully introduced to a covenantal (Biblical) understanding, and now the pieces fit much better and it positively affected my whole life to be more Christ centered and expectant of building Christian civilization this side of eternity by God's grace. Gary has rendered a real service for the Christian community and we are appreciative.

  10. R. T. Tidwell says:

    I remain somewhat on the fence aboput dispensationalism, which is apparently indicated by my use of "somewhat!" However, I think dispensationalism lays out a good determination of the characteristics of each age. It is not an egregious form of Bible interpretation. To some who scoff at it, it is probably a case for exxagerated humor. But, I will be open to reading TGary's book and see what he says.

  11. Carrie says:

    Is the debate available for purchase as well? Thank you.

      It will be as soon as AV's crack audio and video department can get to it. I think you will find it very enlightening.
