ABSTRACT:
    PROGRESSIVE DISPENSATIONALISM AND THE DISTINCTIONS OF EARLY
    DISPENSATIONALISTS:

    Early dispensationalism was highly successful in withstanding the attacks of its enemies over
    the last two centuries.  Recently, however, it has been facing attacks unlike any experienced
    before; attacks especially dangerous because they are coming from within the
    dispensational camp itself.  Those on the offense today claim to have the best interests of
    dispensationalism at heart, yet at the same time they strike hammer blows against the very
    foundation on which it rests. Known as progressive dispensationalists, this group insists that
    they are nothing more than the next progressive stage in the gradual development of
    dispensational theology.  

    To prove this assertion, they find within the teachings of some recent dispensationalists the
    ‘missing links’ they need to prove their assertions. This paper will attempt to identify the
    fundamental and foundational elements of dispensational theology (the real sine qua non of
    dispensationalism, if you will), show how early dispensationalists embraced them, note the
    changes more recent dispensationalists have made to them and, lastly, determine the
    validity of what progressive dispensationalists are proposing today.   In light of the goal of
    continuing to reach the multitudes throughout the world with an accessible Bible that reveals
    an accessible God, what we are at risk of loosing is priceless.
