With regard to the cessationist position on biblical
interpretation, as that position is practiced today, I would suggest that
it is rather an extreme form of dispensationalism than a form of
liberalism. But to discuss this, it would be necessary to quite a ways
toward the theological side of the spectrum, so I'll forbear.
