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.”
We pray that we and you will be of the same mind in the truth that is in Christ Jesus.
