It would seem to me that any church post-Apostolic (i.e. not the
Inspired Word of God) has no more bearing than current believers.
Proximity in time has no meaning--just read 1 and 2 Timothy, Jude,
Peter, and in fact Christ's warnings! (Oh, and Galatians, 1
Corinthians, etc.) Theological error is no greater nor less than it
was at any other time in the history of this world. We have one
standard--God's Word, and I don't care who else says it, if it doesn't
match God's Word, then it's wrong-Calvin, Luther, Augustine--Rick
Warren--anybody and everybody. I haven't watched this, but so-called
"dispensationalism" if properly understood, is _not_ a system of
interpretation, but dispensations are merely descriptive of how God
revealed Himself, and His will, and the plan of salvation through the
ages. God's plan didn't/doesn't change, only how much people knew or
understood of it. Salvation/belief has not changed at all.

Sadly, however, I find that most people want to argue their system,
and all-too-frequently, appeal to authority--an authority that does
not rest on sola scripture, but on teachers/church fathers (early
church?). Sorry, but that doesn't hold water with God, as Paul so
severely proclaimed in Galatians 1.
