Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

The above contention, that Christianity is based on historic, not present experience, requires an explanation as to why the situation of today differs from that of certain other historical epochs.

  1. On the assumption that relevant historical experiences have, in fact, occurred, the traditional explanation for the changed expectation of supernatural events is probably the best; namely, that the periods of "evidential" experience were foundational and, therefore, atypical.
  2. It is, however, one of the contentions1 of Acts 28 Dispensationalism to explain this difference, which is a straightforward deduction from its basic premises.
