Introducing NCT

Exploring Examining Discussing Discovering

We are wanting this site to be a place where NCT can be explored, examined and discussed here in the U.K. especially.

It is important for those who are newcomers to this subject to realise from the start that NCT is NOT a fixed Systematic Theology – but rather, an understanding of the Scriptures (especially the relationship between the Old and New Covenants) that is IN PROCESS. We are still endeavouring to learn together

We welcome all contributions and responses that are made in a gracious and irenic spirit.

That does not eliminate controversy of course, for NCT is bound to be controversial since it challenges the assumptions and the genuinely  held doctrines of good evangelicals who hold to Dispensational Theology or Covenant Theology or neither.

These latter two are frequently embedded in and are the basis of Statements of Faith in a great number of Churches and are required declarations by their Ministers and often by members too.  Consequently, NCT is more than challenging, it is threatening to those whose very ministries and churches so committed.

I personally have had to face such challenges and the costs involved to me, to my family and church. But it is incumbent upon all who take the label of ‘evangelical Christian’ to respond to this challenge as the Bereans did as recorded in Acts 17:11:
“…. they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
(KJV)
We pray that we and you will be of the same mind in the truth that is in Christ Jesus.

    Amen! I was in a wonderful church that held to the 1689 London Baptist Confession and I taught that to prospective new members and was trained for service as an elder in that church. As I studied the 1689 it became clear to me it was wrong on the Mosaic Law, self contradictory on the Mosaic Law, and too accepting of some presuppositions inherited from the WCF. The elders would not listen to my concerns and they would not consider me for eldership only because I would not claim to “fully subscribe” to the 1689.

    After I was ordained by another church and sent to pastor a small Baptist church in Oklahoma, I was fired from that within 4 weeks because I preached the Bible and taught them things that did not comport with Billy Graham’s pelagianism.

    God is still on His throne ruling the affairs of men – including this wretch who is beloved by the woman God gave him 37 years ago. Blessings in Christ, my brother.
