Bullingerism

Interesting how one realises why a certain group of people who perceive themselves as sound fundamental Mid-Acts 9 Dispensationalists, believe what what they do, and who has influenced their beliefs.

Some info relating to Bullinger:

  • The late Ethelbert William Bullinger was an ordained Anglican clergyman.
  • Although he could see the clear errors in the Church of England’s covenant theology, he never separated from them.
  • He believed the earth was flat and was a member of the *Zetetic Society.
  • He held to the Weslyan/Protestant/Reformed view of **common grace.
  • He believed in soul sleep.
  • Bullinger was not clear on the ***final state of the lost, hence many of his followers are annihilationists.
  • The beliefs of the the Plymouth Brethren influenced some of his writings.
  • Bullinger held that the body of Christ began after the end of Acts, which was not revealed until Paul’s prison epistles, (which is Acts 28 theology).

*The modern flat earth society has its roots in the Zetetic society which holds to pseudo-science.

**”Common Grace” is the Wesleyan-Reformed term otherwise known as “Universal Forgiveness” amongst Bullingerites, which is not the same as “Universalism”, which is also known as ” Universal Forgiveness”, where all are universally saved.  Bullingerism subtracts reconciliation from justification with one verse taken out of context: 2 Corinthians 5:19.

***Bullingerites are not very willing to discuss eternal damnation and hell, judgment, God’s wrath nor sin for that matter…

Acts 28 Dispensationalism

Acts 28 Dispensational

  • Believe the church of today did not begin until revealed to the Apostle Paul, but was not made known to him prior to Acts 28.
  • Believe Jesus’ ministry, like Paul’s ministry in the book of Acts was part of Israel’s program.
  • Believe that only after the sign gifts ceased, Paul started preaching the mystery with respect to the church.
  • Believe Paul’s ministry and epistles post Acts 28 is solely for the church today.
  • Believe Paul’s epistles prior to Acts 28 do not include any mystery information.
  • They say Paul was sent to preach two different messages (prophecy and mystery).
  • They therefore believe Paul preached more than one gospel.

These are Acts 28 dispensationalists, or a distorted variety of same.
