Dispensationalism is the theology for Heavy Metal fans
Reformed theology, with its philosophical tendencies tends to appeal to intellectuals, Star Trek fans and people who mostly listen to Classical music.
In contrast, I think Dispensationalism is the theological system for Heavy Metal fans. With its ancient evil going back to pre-creation week ages, battles in heaven between good and bad angels, its expectation of an evil Satanic totalitarian system and a corrupt ecclesiastical system and its cataclysmic judgements, how can Dispensational theology possibly fail to appeal to Heavy Metal fans? Do not the long-haired monsters of Revelation chapter 9 belong on the cover of an Heavy Metal album if one interprets them literally?
I think Heavy Metal can provide an excellent soundtrack for reading books by Clarence Larkin.
Totally awesome, dude.
