History of Biblical Dispensationalism & GREAT MUSIC

Found a very informative message about Dispensationalism, which, to me, is the sane and intelligent person’s interpretation of the Bible. The video is embedded below. I love messages from Sugar Land Bible Church in Sugar Land, Texas. This church has some great teachers! Love to hear Dr. Andy Woods and his fellow minister Dr. Jim McGowan. My husband Brent Spiner attends Dallas Theological Seminary and my favorite teachers are often graduates of this school or associated with Dallas Theological Seminary.

My Christian views and tastes are very eclectic and I just personally think out all I believe and come to my own conclusions after weighing the evidence from various sources. For this reason, my views do not totally align with any particular Christian group, with the exception of Church of Gail where my husband Brent Spiner is the pastor. So, though I love Chris Tomlin’s song “The Wonderful Cross”, it does not mean I love all his songs, or that I necessarily agree with all he believes. In fact, many of his views are very different from Dr. Andy Woods. I feel that as a musician Chris is very talented and good. But when it comes to theology and Bible teaching, I love Andy Woods, especially in regards to Bible prophecy. As Christians we are gifted in different areas and I believe in appreciating the entire body of Christ, encouraging all believers to use the unique gifts God has given them. Because we are all different, we will evolve as believers in different ways (and may end up on different paths), but as long as we are living our Christian lives out in love, we should encourage and embrace our differences as a way to make the world a more beautiful and interesting place. This may reflect on the fact that I am an INFP (Myers-Briggs): https://www.16personalities.com/articles/religion-and-personality-type

Also, I love the music in the end credits to Final, the Rapture and worked long and hard to get it. This is some really awesome Christian music. Check it out! Chris Tomlin is the songwriter behind this and the song is based on a song from this album I believe: https://amzn.to/2TjgmFO

A great version of the Christian song “The Wonderful Cross”.

When I survey the wondrous Cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain, I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

See from His head, His hands, His feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did ever such love and sorrow meet?
Or thorns compose, so rich a crown

Oh the wonderful Cross, oh the wonderful Cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
Oh the wonderful Cross, oh the wonderful Cross
All who gather here by grace, draw near and bless Your name

Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all

Oh the wonderful Cross, oh the wonderful Cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
Oh the wonderful Cross, oh the wonderful Cross
All who gather here by grace, draw near and bless Your name

Oh the wonderful Cross, oh the wonderful Cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live

Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all

It’s the beauty and the shame
It’s the glory and the name
Wonderful Cross

Oh the wonderful Cross, oh the wonderful Cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
Oh the wonderful Cross, oh the wonderful Cross
All who gather here by grace, draw near and bless Your name

Oh the wonderful Cross, oh the wonderful Cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
