60 Minutes last night was really disappointing — they basically equated evangelicals with people who believe in the Rapture. In other words, evangelical = fundamental dispensationalist. I mean seriously, who really believes in the Rapture? You know who? People (men) who stand to make a lot of money by selling books or running churches that cater to afraid people.
Where’s the hope in that? Where’s the anticipation of God’s New Creation. Peter Gomes of Harvard did a fine job, but he didn’t show how dispensationalism is misguided — and it’s not that hard to show that very thing.
