From Liberty to the Captives:
John Nelson Darby: Closet Theosophist?
"John Nelson Darby, the "Father of Dispensationalism," used occult phraseology throughout his doctrinal writings and letters. The majority of them are straight out of Theosophical literature. John Darby learned these esoteric terms somewhere—they are not from the Bible—and he deliberately integrated them into his theological treatises and letters. His merging of Theosophical vocabulary with supposedly biblical teaching is a form of syncretism.
Do you really believe the Holy Spirit led John Nelson Darby and other Brethren leaders to use Luciferian terms to refer to God and teach supposedly "recovered" biblical truths? (1)"
Definitely Darby is not a teacher you can trust, as I have wondered about him and the introduction of false Pre-Trib teachings. Often false teachers will use occult language mixed in with Christian language to deceive and mark themselves. Darby's reference to "god" as "divine energy' and references to "secret wisdom" is disturbing as well as many others of these. Watch out for anyone who refers to 'god" as architect, that is a mark not only of Theosophy but of Freemasonry. I caught one of the Pope's doing it a few years ago:
VATICAN CITY, DEC. 6, 2000 (ZENIT.org).- Every person is called to "collaborate" with the coming of the Kingdom of God, John Paul II said, in an urgent appeal for cooperation between believers and nonbelievers.
In today's general audience address, the Pope said: All the righteous on earth, even those who do not know Christ and his Church and who, under the influence of grace, seek God with a sincere heart, are ..". called to build the Kingdom of God, cooperating with the Lord who is the first and decisive architect ."
Back To Darby, they are on to something over at reformation.org given the HUGE change among Protestants and no longer looking to the Pope as the Antichrist.
Prior to Darby, all Protestant Christians believed that the Pope was Antichrist. They believed that the great falling away happened soon after the end of the apostolic age and that the Papal dynasty answered in every way to the great apostasy or falling away predicted by the Apostle Paul.
Remember Darby is the father of all the evangelical dispensationalism, influencing those like Lindsey, LaHaye, Christian Zionism and more.
