Question from Jack Nassar on 08-20-2012:

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

I met many catholic priests and nuns, some of them believe in the dispensational theology and even teach it in their churches and ministries, and others oppose it; and I personally do not know which one is a real Catholic.

Can you please send me the official Catholic position on the Dispensational theology and doctrine? It's an anti-Catholic one? Is it heresy?

Can Catholics believe in it and follow it and still be Catholics, or will they be considered heretics and ex-communicated?

Please send me the official teaching on why is a right or wrong.

Thank you
