PRETERIST UNIVERSALISM | MODERN PRETERISM | PRETERIST IDEALISM

C.I. Scofield
SEMINAL PREMILLENNIAL DISPENSATIONALIST

The Incredible Scofield and His Book - "The Christian Church still awaits a definitive comprehensive study of the entire subject of the second advent of Christ as it is revealed in the New Testament, including a careful investigation of the history of interpretation and the influence of this profound truth in the creeds and literature of the church.."  | BJU faculty member David O. Beale - "There is a spiteful and inadequately documented attack on Scofield's character.. Canfield attempts to discredit the pretribulation rapture, concludes that Scofield possibly was not even a Christian.."

Scofield Reference Bible (1909)
ĎAt handí is never a positive affirmation that the person or thing said to be Ďat handí will immediately appear, but only that no known or predicted event must intervene." ( p. 998, note 3.)

 

(On the Transition Text Theory)
"Two sieges of Jerusalem are in view in that discourse.  Luke 21:20-24 refers to the siege by Titus, A.D. 70, when the city was taken, and verse 24 literally fulfilled.  But that siege and its horrors but adumbrate the final siege at the end of this age, in which the "great tribulation" culminates.  At that time the city will be taken, but delivered by the glorious appearing of the Lord." (Scofield Reference Bible, 1, 106)

(On Dispy Duplication)
"A distinction must be observed between "the last days" when the prediction relates to Israel, and the "last days" when the prediction relates to the church... Also distinguish the expression "the last days" (plural) from "the last day" (singular) ; the latter expression referring to the resurrections and last judgment.. The "last days" as related to the church began with the advent of Christ (Heb. 1:2), but have especial reference to the time of declension and apostasy at the end of this age (2 Tim. 3:1; 4:4).  The "last days" as related to Israel are the days of Israel's exaltation and blessings, and are synonymous with the kingdom-age..  They are "last" not with reference to this dispensation, but with reference to the whole of Israel's history."  (Scofield Reference Bible, 1,151)

(On Acts 1:11)
"The O.T. foreview of the coming Messiah is in two aspects--that of rejection and suffering (as e.g. in Is 53), and that of earthly glory and power (as e.g. In Is 11 Jer 23 Eze 37). Often these two aspects blend in one passage (e.g. Ps 2). The prophets themselves were perplexed by this seeming contradiction 1 Peter 1:10,11. It was solved by partial fulfilment. In due time the Messiah, born of a virgin according to Isaiah, appeared among men and began His ministry by announcing the predicted kingdom as "at hand."  (Here)

If you think about it, this concept of the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man is the central theme of Socialism and Communism. Christianity, if you will think of it apart from merely a church function, is a Thought-theology of government, commerce, and economics, the fruits of which is a nation of liberty, and individual responsibility. About 150 years ago, Massachusetts, especially in the small towns around Boston, became the spawning ground for this Brotherhood of Man Thought-Theology. The new political, social and theological idea was expressed in Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and so important in the minds of these conspirators that every public school child had to be able to recite that: "...All men are created equal" A. Lincoln Isn't that an interesting, loving and humanist idea? Without apology, it is not a Scriptural concept, and anyone with an ounce of gray matter knows that it is just not so. Out of this Massachusetts society came a man, born in Middleton in 1833, named John J. Ingalls. He was a graduate of Williams College, well endowed in those days with the ideas of the Esau Clan. He became a lawyer. He was the spokesman for a Boston group known as "The Secret Six." Mr. Ingalls was sent to Atchison, Kansas and it is enough to say that he associated himself with the young lawyer, Cyrus I. Scofield. Actually, Scofield never attended any college, not even for a day, as a student! However, he fancied himself a lawyer, but had not been admitted to the Bar. Through the influences of the Secret Six men in Kansas, Scofield was admitted to the Bar, with no formal training whatever. He gave himself his theological Doctorate Degree the same way. Scofield went on, with the help of the Secret Six people, to get appointed United States Attorney for Kansas, only to be forced to resign after six months when he and friend Ingalls were caught in a blackmail scheme against the railroads. Some of his other criminal activities have been already mentioned, but what is important here is that the Boston Secret Six, whom he never met and was not their peer, assigned C. I. Scofield the task of translating the Fatherhood of God, Brotherhood of Man concepts into a system of Bible teachings. It was during those long days and nights when he was in prison for forgery, that Scofield had begun studying the unscholarly theological and philosophical ideas of a loser named J. N. Darby, a scatter-brained Englishman. Today, Darby would be called a "hippy" and he looked the part. He was already doing in England what the Secret Six were to assign Scofield to do in the United States. In England, the Brotherhood of Man Thought-theology was boiled down by Darby into a new denomination called The Brethren Movement. The Secret Six were not stupid. They had done their homework. They reasoned, and quite correctly, that America could not be converted from Republic into International Socialism until the vast majority of American Christians could be taught that the church was not to be militant regarding the affairs of state, and that God's Laws, Statutes and Judgments were not valid as a means of governing anything but a theocratic nation. It was necessary to subvert the First Amendment to the Constitution to mean that the Church was to offer no suggestions and to be silent regarding those affairs of state that effect in a vital way every Christian and his way of life. This was quite a project for Mr. Scofield, since God thought so much of righteous governments that He devoted about 80% of Holy Writ to that subject, and made governments one of the Holy Spirit's special Gifts. Now with the Secret Six, Scofield, and some of his associates such as Dwight L. Moody and Arno Clemens Gaebelein, that was going to change. On July 23, 1901, Scofield confided in his friends that he intended to develop a "Reference Bible" that would bring about this "new beginning and new testimony." Of course, such tremendous efforts take plenty of money and a lot of time. Scofield had time, and he needed money. While he was talking like a Christian out of one side of his mouth, he was taking the money and doing the bidding of his financial backers, the subversive Secret Six. In 1901, the author of the Scofield Bible References was admitted into the Lotus Club of New York City, much to the embarrassment of his holier-than-thou Christian brethren. The Lotus Club was restricted to "social intercourse between journalists, artists, musicians, friends of literature, science, and fine arts, etc." Scofield, at this time, was no more than a Kansas con-man with some highly placed financiers. He had no background in fine arts, music or literature. His "Reference Notes" had not been written, much less published, so his qualifications for entrance into this elite and worldly group becomes of particular interest. This club's literary committee, which passed on "Dr." C.I. Scofield, was headed by one Samuel Untermeyer, who at that time was a notorious criminal lawyer. Untermeyer, as his name suggests, was one of those kinfolks of Esau-Edom and his accomplishments on behalf of the socialist and communist causes in America take up two columns in "Who's Who in America." Untermeyer's Thought-theology, as any one might suppose, was far removed from that of any fundamental Bible believer. Scofield was no such believer. He was directed by the Secret Six to the Lotus Club, and their associate Samuel Untermeyer saw to it that he was admitted without credentials. Scofield was not just a "casual member" but listed it as his residence for twenty years until he died. The purpose of Samuel Untermeyer, and those associated with him, was to find a way to get fundamental Christians to have an interest in, and support for, the International Zionist Cause, which had been one of Untermeyer's life long projects. Samuel Untermeyer died in 1941, but the records I have in my office prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he was a dedicated Communist, and worked for Communist causes all of his adult life. Scofield's Reference Bible was simply one of those objectives. In twenty years of membership in the Lotus Club, Scofield with his long association with Untermeyer had to have known about his unAmerican activities and his Synagogue of Satan. The letter, shown here on Lotus Club stationery and signed by Scofield, was sent to the Bible teacher, A. C. Gaebelien, who knew of Scofield's activities but did not disclose it to his fundamentalist friends until it was boastfully published in the Moody Monthly, in 1942. The secular significance of the Lotus Club was not, of course, disclosed to the Moody readers.

I know that some people call dispensationalists "pessimists" because we beleive that the world will wax worse as time moves forward. Some also think we don't care about lost souls because the rapture is going to occur. Well, contrary to this, we believe that the imminent return (rapture) of Jesus Christ compels us to do His work while it is still day which is carrying out the Great Commission. Taking as many people to heaven with us is what I hear among the people I know who believe in dispensationalism. Also, for those out there who believe that the Gospel is going to permiate every corner of the world and then Jesus will return to rule the earth, where is that evidence? I don't see the world getting better. Just look at our country alone, it has changed for the worse since WW2 and is sliding downward more and more every year. I believe Scofield was right on with rightly dividing the Word as there are distinctions between Israel and the church. Israel restored as a nation and the new Temple that is going to be built heavily support "last days" thinking. If not, then why have the Jews come up with the red heifer? Why are they ready to lay a corner stone for the Temple?

Dispensationalism is based on the false premise that Jesus failed to do what he was supposed to do so God had to improvise and come up with a temporary "fix" ("Church age" - present "dispensation") to the inpotent and incompetent "Jesus" problem. Rev. Moon agrees with the failure "Jesus" premise and a "Jesus" who failed to do what he was "supposed" to do (be a carnal Jewish political king) certainly can't be God, so he must be, uhhhh, ... would you believe - Michael the Archangel (Watchtower Society)? Dispensationalism is a counterfeit because like other counterfeits, it has a counterfeit "Jesus." A failed politician wannabe "Jesus" who will "get it right" when he comes back to take his "mulligan." Did Jesus say "I am the way, the truth and the life" or "I am a failed politician wannabe, but I'll get it right the second time." Did Jesus say "My kingdom is not of this world" or did he say "My kingdom was supposed to be of this world, but I royally messed up. I'll get it right the second time." Dispensationalism may tickle carnal ears and sell fiction books, but it isn't scripture and has a counterfeit; failed politician wannabe "Jesus."

My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord !
Those who have denegraded C.I. Scofield must be identified according to their fruit. Let us consider 'spiritual discernment' in all things to be examined before the Lord.

The C.I. Scofield Study Bible has been used by many excellent preachers/teachers of God's Word.
Examine the fruit of Scofield's work and you will recognize that the Holy Spirit was obviously at work.

Satanical attacks about a brother in the Lord are not unusual in any age of time past or present.
Since we are in the last days of the church age, we need to acknowledge what scripture has to say about those false teachers who secrectly introduce destructive heresies. (2Pet. 2)

I recently visited a Bible Book Store looking for a Scofield Study Bible or a KJV version of another Study bible. To my surprise hardly any KJV bibles were available. There were plenty of other versions by the dozens.I fear that something sinister is going on.Is there a conspiracy by Satan to get rid of the KJV? It's getting so the Church can't even read in unison anymore. It sounds like people everywhere in the congegation is speaking in Tongues

The fruits of the marriage of Dispensationalist theology and Zionism are 62 years of division and bloodshed in the Middle East. Perhaps it is unwise to blame or point fingers, but modern Israel and Palestine are not the fruit I would attribute to a loving God.
