14 Nov Dispensational Eschatology and Politics
There’s a pretty good post on how various eschatological perspectives have influenced American foreign policy decisions over at the New Jerusalem Community Blog. Though not exactly precise in terminology (identifying “premillennial” with “dispensational” when the former does not necessarily imply the latter), the blog is an excellent read about how certain end times theologies have impacted political decisions (and continue to do so). Thanks to Joel Watts for pointing the way to the link. It’s well worth a look—it’s amazing how much such a young (and, um, flawed) theological system has managed to influence so many major decisions and policies.
