The roots of dispensationalism are found in works of the British clergyman, John Nelson Darby (1800-82), whose teaching greatly influenced Cyrus I. Scofield, an American. Scofield was so impressed with Darby’s doctrine that he developed his own reference Bible (The Scofield Reference Bible) in 1909 (revised 1917) using Darby’s notes on the same pages as the Biblical text.

Believers, on the other hand, receive the word of God as their truth (Matthew 13:23). Understanding the word, they allow the truth to mold their behavior in life. In other words, believers are changed by the word of God in an effort to establish the reign of God, but unbelievers change the word of God in an effort to establish their own reign in the presence of God.
