Salvation by Grace Through Faith - Always
Richard T. Ritenbaugh
Given 04-Nov-06; Sermon #799s; 17 minutes
Richard Ritenbaugh suggests that the churches of God do not follow the nefarious Protestant doctrine of dispensationalism—an era of time during which man is tested against an aspect of God's judgment. Each dispensation or era allows people to be saved by different criteria. The doctrine suggests that Moses and his followers were saved by the law and Abraham was saved by faith, while today people are supposedly justified only by grace. If this doctrine is true, God is made to look inconsistent and arbitrary through history. In I Peter 1:10-12, Peter said the prophets were saved by grace.
