I listened, I basically enjoyed. You may recall the review of Vlach's book on dispensationalism here. My thoughts about the talk are similar to the book: it was helpful, but I would have liked an aggressive job of making the case for dispensationalism, rather than simply a "here is what they believe, and if you believe it, you're one of them." But since many still are unclear as to what dispensationalism is, except that, like Christianity in Rome, "everywhere it is spoken against" (Acts 28:22), there doubtless is a need for such a talk.
Vlach (pronounced Vlock) takes 15+ minutes actually to get into the substance of his talk, time I would have preferred to see devoted to more development of the topic. His reading of part of Gentry's mocking list was funnier; I would link, but his site is offline.)
Perhaps the best part is Vlach's conclusion, in which the good doctor gives his own serious...
You might be a dispensationalist if....
- ...you believe that the primary meaning of Old Testament passages is found in the Old Testament passages themselves.
- ...you believe that national Israel is not a type that finds its significance ended with the Church.
- ...you reject replacement theology.
- ...you believe that Jews and Gentiles can be unified in salvation and there is a future for the nation Israel.
- ...you believe that the nation Israel will be saved and restored with a role of blessing to the nations after the second coming.
- ...you believe that believing Gentiles can be the "seed of Abraham" without becoming spiritual Jews or part of Israel.
