Study to show thyself approved unto God" (2 Tim. 2:15a).
There is as much error produced in failing to divide the Word at all, as there is in wrongly dividing it.
"Covenant Theology, at the utmost, is forgiveness of sins and divine favor enjoyed; and all that concerns their position in the Lord Jesus is ignored, or alas! guarded against as dangerous. Men are placed under the New Covenant which does not go beyond remission of sins and the law written in the heart. But being in Christ, and knowing it by the Holy Spirit, and what it involves now has dropped out of their creed altogether."
"We are come to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant' (Heb. 12:24). We are not come to the new covenant, but to Jesus the Mediator of it. I am associated with Him who is the Mediator; that is a much higher position than if we merely come to the covenant. He will make this new covenant with Israel on the millennial earth." -H.S.
"Non-dispensational teachers have endeavored to bring over the many promises of the physical and material aspects of kingdom salvation into the present dispensation, giving hope of material prosperity and physical health, as well as political peace. Failure to realize these promised goals has caused many to lose faith and to become bitter toward God Himself. The failure, of course, is not of God, but of teachers who have refused to rightly divide the Word of Truth."
"Calvin attempted by discipline of Church and State to make everyone live like a Christian - as did the Puritans as a result. This effort resulted in the need to use the Old Testament rather than the New as an ethical guide."
"A workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth" (2 Tim. 2:15b)
