Progressive dispensationalism In Evangelical Christian theology, progressive dispensationalism is a variation of traditional dispensationalism. All dispensationalists view the dispensations as chronologically successive. Progressive dispensationalists, in addition to viewing the dispensations as chronologically successive, also view the dispensations as progressive stages in salvation history. The term "progressive" comes from the concept of an interrelationship or progression between the dispensations. Progressive dispensationalism is not related to any social or political use of the term progressive, such as progressive Christianity.

Not all chronic diseases are progressive: a chronic, non-progressive disease may be referred to as a "static" condition.

As varying interpretations and practices made evaluation of progressive reforms more difficult to assess, critics began to propose alternative approaches.
