Why Does Dispensationalism Get Such a Bad Rap?

Most Christians would agree that the Old Covenant mediated by Moses at Mt. Sinai is different than the New Covenant mediated by Jesus through His death at Calvary. That requires a minimum of two divine administrations or dispensations. And if we assume that the eternal state is different from the present church age, we can postulate a third dispensation. If there is a difference between the eternal state and the Messianic Kingdom, then we have a fourth dispensation. One doesn’t have to embrace the full seven dispensations of the Scofield Study Notes to be a “Dispensationalist.”
