Dispensational, Cessasionist View of the Spirit's Work Oct 23, 2005
Dr. Charles Ryrie's book THE HOLY SPIRIT was a standard text at Dallas Theological Seminary for many years along with the works of former president John Walvoord. Since Ryrie is no longer with DTS, the school has moved on to other theological works on the Spirit but Ryrie's work remains an important part of the DTS library.
Ryrie's study of the person and work of the Holy Spirit begins with a study of who the Spirit is. Ryrie then leads us through the Bible to show the Holy Spirit and His various ministries both under the Old Covenant and the New.
The positives of Ryrie's work are that Ryris is a scholar. He remains committed to an orthodox view of the Holy Spirit. Ryrie also uses the Scriptures to teach on the Holy Spirit and does not spend page after page giving us personal, subjective experiences as often seen in many charismatic works on the subject of the Holy Spirit. Ryrie's outlines are easy to follow and generally Ryrie stays on track throughout his book so that the reader has a biblical view of the Holy Spirit in the end.
The negative side of the work is twofold for me. First, Ryrie remains committed to his cessasionist views. While I differ with him in this regard, Ryrie does disagree with non-cessasionist with much grace. Secondly, Ryrie takes a bizarre view of the security of the believer and sanctification to an extreme found with many DTS graduates and like-minded leaders such as Charles Stanley or Tony Evans. Ryrie's view is that a believer is once saved, always saved no matter what! The security of the Spirit is so strong that a person only must believe in Jesus once for a moment and then become an atheist but their salvation remains secure. His dispensational view of the age of grace (the Church age) no doubt has this effect upon his theology.
Overall I can only give Ryrie's work a three star mainly to his eternal security view. This one doctrine effects his views on the conviction of the Spirit (John 16:8), intercession (Romans 8:26-27) and sanctification (2 Thess. 2:13-14). While Ryrie remains committed to a biblical view of the person of the Spirit, he falls short in his teaching on the work of the Spirit in the life of the disciple.
