VFTB at Pikes Peak: Doug Stauffer – Progressive Illumination

Dr. Doug Stauffer

A GROUP of self-anointed “prophets” have gathered quite a following in the modern charismatic movement, declaring that God is revealing new things about His work. On the other side of the spectrum, certain liberal theologians are reinterpreting scripture and doctrine in ways that have never been seen in the history of the Church.

Respected Bible scholar Dr. Doug Stauffer explains the difference between progressive revelation (which, contrary to those who declare that “God is doing a new thing,” ended when the biblical canon was complete) and progressive illumination, which is the ongoing study and understanding of what is in His word. Progressive illumination is a deeper understanding of the Bible; progressive revelation supercedes the Bible. That’s a major distinction.

Doug also shares a number of examples of where scripture gives us pictures of prophecy yet to be fulfilled. This is one of more than a dozen interviews that will be included in the DVD set from the 2014 Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit. For more information and to order, see Prophecy in the News.

Also: Ebola continues to spread, and Houston officials subpoena sermon notes from pastors addressing homosexuality or gay Mayor Annise Parker.
