I currently just finished my first semester at The Master's College and I absolutely love the place. I transferred there and have two years left. Over that past six months I have come to the Biblical conclusion that dispensationalism is an erroneous system. I love John MacArthur, and the gospel preached at Grace Community Church, but I think it right to find a reformed church. I love the Master's College, but I no longer hold to their dispensational beliefs. I thought it would be smart to find a reformed church in order to grow in the faith, and find men who can teach me the reformed faith more properly, and most importantly grow in the knowledge of Christ. Scripture has become so much more clear after having the veil lifted off, and I thank God for this website, along with monergism, and most importantly His Word.
It is sort of funny how this all started, but I can thank John MacArthur for preaching a message that led me to question, and now disagree with dispensationalism. My journey started not only over the past six months, but a while before that. I was reading MacArthur's message on, "Why Every Calvinist should be a Pre-mil Dispensationalist." I read it about ten times. He made the comment that if Calvin were alive today He would be on his side (J-mac's). That led to the conclusion that Calvin disagreed, which in turn led to me to do some research. I read Kim Riddlebarger's response to that sermon, and was baffled. That little response to MacArthur was absolutely Biblical. I agreed more with Dr. Riddlebarger than I did with Dr. MacArthur. This fueled my study, and obviously this is why I wrote this post.
I need some suggestions about finding/attending a reformed church in So Cal which would be awesome. The school I attend is in Santa Clarita, CA (northern LA area). I am going to finish my degree at Master's, but Lord willing I will go to a seminary, and at that a reformed one. The Master's Seminary just would not fit because of the dispensationalism taught there. Thanks for reading, and any suggestions would be wonderful. I know CRC is in Anaheim, but it is 1 hour and 15 minutes away, and I don't have the money (college student) to drive there every Sunday.
