Hyperdispensationalist-Les Feldick

Les Feldick is a hyperdispensationalist from Kinta, Oklahoma.  Les Feldick taught hyperdispensationalism for 19 years on a local TV station in Tulsa, Oklahoma from October 1990 to October 2009.  Hyperdispensationalism takes dispensationalism further than the Bible takes dispensationalism which results in heresy and error in Bible teaching.

Les Feldick is a King James Bible corrector.  The only Bible that teaches dispensationalism is the King James Bible.  The King James Bible is the only Bible that has the command to “rightly dividing the word of truth” in it.  It is strange that hyperdispensationalists like Les Feldick reject the King James Bible as being the perfect word of God, when it is the only one that teaches to “rightly divide.”

2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

The Bible instructs Christians to rightly divide the word of truth in 2 Timothy 2:15.  There are two obvious errors that can be made.  The first error is not to divide the word of truth at all or not enough.  The Covenant Theology crowd make this error by claiming that salvation is all the same in the Bible.  The second error is to divide the word of truth in the wrong places or in too many places.  This is the error of hyperdispensationalists.  An example of this would be to teach that the church started with Paul instead of with Christ as stated in Ephesians 2:16.

1 Corinthians 15:9 (KJV) For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

Galatians 1:13 (KJV) For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:

Philippians 3:6 (KJV) Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

Ephesians 2:16 (KJV) And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

The above verses prove that the church of God was around before Paul was saved, since Paul persecuted the church before he was saved.  Les Feldick tries to make 1 Corinthians 3:9-12 the beginning of the church with Paul.

1 Corinthians 3:9 (KJV) For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
1 Corinthians 3:10 (KJV) According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
1 Corinthians 3:11 (KJV) ¶ For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:12 (KJV) Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
1 Corinthians 3:13 (KJV) Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
1 Corinthians 3:14 (KJV) If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
1 Corinthians 3:15 (KJV) If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Les Feldick tries to make the building in 1 Cor 3:9 the church.  The problem is that 1 Cor 15:9, Gal 1:13, and Phil 3:6 tell us that the church of God existed before Paul.  Therefore, 1 Cor 3 must be speaking about something other than the Church of God.  Paul is explaining that every Christian’s foundation is Jesus Christ.  Then the Christian builds upon that foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, and stubble.  The Christian will appear before the judgment seat of Christ and their works will be tried sometime in the future. The gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay and stubble are a Christian’s work.  This is about the judgment seat of Christ where each individual Christian will give account to Christ of what he has done for Christ.

Romans 14:10 (KJV) But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:10 (KJV) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
