Salvation Through the Ages, Chap. 9, Conclusion
Salvation through the ages has always had at its core the restoration of the relationship between people and their Creator. This restoration is necessary if one wishes to spend eternity with God, of course. But the conditions under which this happens has changed in the past and will change again. We need to guard against applying the parameters for one age onto another, so that we don't misapply teachings or prophecies. Failure to recognize these differences has led to many needless and heated divisions among believers.
