The James White Cult-Part 1

Posted: September 3, 2017 in Uncategorized

[This is ONLY the rough draft, but I’m publishing some of it early since I said I’d have it by the weekend. There’s just too many screenshots to upload to make this a quick post, but there’s enough below that readers will get the point about why I refer to James White followers as the “James White Cult”. I will add to this post and fix errors later]

Part 1 of this series will focus on the cultic mindset that the worshipful sycophants of James White of Alpha & Omega “Ministries” display in support of him. Scripture tells us that if a ruler hearkens to lies, all his servants are wicked (Proverbs 29:12). This is certainly analogous to the instant case where James White’s followers employ an “any means necessary” strategy to suppress dissent against White, rivaled only by the most vile social justice warriors like Antifa. These Saul Alinsky type tactics are indicative of White’s leadership.

White’s followers are made of mostly anonymous accounts. Those on the Twitter #Oldpaths hashtag are well aware of the years of harassment they’ve experienced from thousands of these accounts. Many of White’s supporters created parody accounts of his detractors to stalk them, and follow their every online move. Most recently, this has been done to me, Pastor Steve Camp, Brannon Howse, and several others who have opposed White’s recent participation in Islamic interfaith dialogues.

Now granted, under most circumstances it would be erroneous and fallacious to attribute to White actions that are merely done on his behalf (a sort of guilt by association). However, White has not only acknowledged these accounts, BUT ACTIVELY ENDORSES AND ENCOURAGES THEM

DrAchMonitor to whom White is responding along with my own Twitter account tagged (DortChristians) is a parody account made by Fred Butler of Grace To You Ministries. Although I have repeatedly emphasized that Dr. James Ach and Dr. James A (me) are not the same, White’s cult has found the accusation a useful gaff in trying to aggravate me. But nevertheless, all references the White cult makes regarding “Ach” are meant to identify me. Why that’s important to them is a mystery, but I digress.

It is also of interest that well it’s perfectly acceptable for White to consult with parody accounts, to point out White’s errors and hypocrisy is “stalking”. How one doesn’t see the irony in praising a parody account while in the same breath denouncing “stalking” is beyond me. But it does show quite a breach in White’s logic, or simply reveals his true motives in the lengths he’s willing to go to discredit his adversaries. But, since White has “single-handedly” saved the Muslim world, there is nothing off limits in protecting your Superman. 

Here are just a few examples of the most vile, vitriolic, nasty, and egregious posts from White’s cult. Once you have read them, you will be able to see right through the Alinsky tactics they use in accusing White’s adversaries of doing the very thing that THEY specialize in. It is ironic that when I opened the door to debate on of these parodies, Calvinist Fish, he would not answer whether or not Jesus is Lord, and I have long suspected that some of White’s most ardent supporters are atheists and Muslims.

First of all, White’s supporters brag out “trolling”. The following is from James White’s daughter’s best friend, Katie Boettcher (“Catbo222”) 

Here is “Pastor” Nick Johnson, making fun of the plight of my minor children. (Screenshot and explanation) It is one thing to point out a minister’s adult child involved in theological error or blatant unbiblical practices (as with James White’s daughter supporting Jesuit teacher and feminist, Karen Swallow Prior-whom James White himself has criticized for using ‘gay affirming’ language, and his daughter’s endorsement of an LGBT musical group, Pentatonix), but quite another to use a tragedy that has occured to your minor children not in your custody against you because you’re not adult enough, or Christian enough, to handle criticism of your favorite religious personality.

Next, we have the White Klan using some course homosexual jokes, and a song about “ding a lings” to describe me, which James White seemed to really appreciate

Of course, “The Monitor” tried to explain away the blatant sexual references of the Chuck Berry song, but any casual perusal of the lyrics can clearly see its not about high school bells.

White’s followers even stooped so low as to try and get my account suspended by saying that I was attacking LGBTs because I was criticizing them 











The Fraudulent Codex Sinaiticus Defended By the James White Cult

Dr. James A., PhD

One of the most damning pieces of evidence against the Codex Sinaiticus is the evidence of its usage of anachronistic etymology that proves it is NOT a 4th or 5th century manuscript as contended by modern Bible “scholars”, but rather a modern forgery written by Constantine Simonides. James White, who defends the Sinaiticus, has never addressed this issue (not even in the debate with Chris Pinto where the White Cult claims victory because Pinto didn’t answer questions to their satisfaction that had nothing to do with the arguments Pinto raised in Tares Among the Wheat. Such red herrings are a standard Whitean debate tactic), so White and his cult who point to the only time in White’s history (the Simonides controversy isn’t argued in White’s book) where the Simonides controversy was ever addressed by White, can not merely point to this “debate” with Pinto as an answer to this charge of anachronisms against the Codex Sinaiticus.

A brief introduction to this controversy is as follows. Constantine Tischendorf, who claimed to have “found” the Sinaiticus touting it as an ancient manuscript, accused Simonides of lying about an ms he’d made known as The Shepherd of Hermas prior to Tischendorf’s publication of Sinaiticus. Long story short, Tischendorf had to retract his accusation and Simonides was exonerated. However, what snagged Tischendorf when he published Sinaiticus was that an exact match of the Shepherd of Hermas was contained in the so-called Codex Sinaiticus. When Constantine published the Sinaiticus, Simonides recognized his own work and markings, and called Tischendorf out on the lie that the Codex Sinaiticus was an ancient manuscript, the earliest among any known extant mss.

Both the Shepherd of Hermas and Sinaiticus contain Greek words that were not in use during the era in which Tischendorf and his ilk claim for the age of the codices (not to mention the sheer coincidence that Codex Sinaiticus just happened to contain the two Greek copies of Hermes and Barnabas known to have been previously attributed to Simonides).

From The Forging of the Sinaiticus, William Cooper, citing Greek scholar, James Donaldson notes,

“The late origin of the Greek is indicated by the occurrence of a great number of words unknown to the classical period, but common in later or modern Greek. Such are Βουνος, συμβιοσ (as wife), με (for μετα), πρωτοκαθεδριεις, ισχυροποιω κατεπιθυμω, ασυγκρασια, καταχυμα, εξακριβαζομαι, and such like. The lateness of the Greek appears also from late forms; such as αγαθωτατης, μεθισταναι, οιδας, αφιουσι (αφινουσιν in Sim. Greek), καπεκοπταν, ενεσκιρωμενοι, επεδιδουν, ετιθουν, beside ετιθεσαν, εσκαν, λημψη, ελπιδαν, τιθω, επεριψας and ηνοιξας, ειπασα, χειραν, απλοτηταν, σαρκαν, συνιω, συνιει; and some modern Greek forms, such as κραταουσα for κρατουσα, have been corrected by the writer of the manuscript. The lateness of the Greek appears also in the absence of the optative and the frequent use of ινα after ερωταν, αξιω, αιτουμαι, εντελλομαι, αξιος, &c., generally with the subjunctive, never with the optative. We also find εαν joined with the indicative. Εις is continually used for εν, as εχουσιν τοτον εις τον πυργον. We have also παρα after comparatives, and peculiar constructions, as περιχαρης του ιδειν, σπουδαιος εις το γνοναι, απεγνωρισθαι απο. And we have a neuter plural joined with a plural verb, κτηνη ερχονται. Most, if not all, of these peculiarities now mentioned, may be found in Hellenistic writings, especially the New Testament; and some of them maybe paralleled even in classical writers. But if we consider that the portion which has now been examined is small, and that every page is filled with these peculiarities, the only conclusion to which we can come is, that the Greek is not the Greek of the at least first five centuries of the Christian era. There is no document written within that period which has half so many neo-Hellenic forms, taken page by page, as this Greek of the Pastor of Hermas.”

To bring this down to laymen’s terms, let’s use a simple analogy. If Pope Gregory XVI (who paid Tischendorf for his endeavors, which is a little odd given that Tischendorf was supposed to be a Protestant, and Pope Gregory is notorious for burning such “heretics” in a dungeon) had written a letter claiming that he never met Tischendorf, and in that letter, said that he was drinking Pepsi when he learned about the Codex Sinaiticus for the first time, we could safely infer that this letter was not really written by the pope given that we know when Pepsi was invented. Rather, the letter would have been written by someone in recent times. The Codex Sinaiticus and Shepherd of Hermas both have “Pepsi” spilled on them (and in many places, the authors had write AROUND the “Pepsi”. More on the “wormhole” problem at a future time).

There is even far greater evidence extant that the Codex Sinaiticus is even more recent than the 5th century, but the standard paradigm that surrounds the modern version controversy rests on whether or not Codex Sinaiticus is a 4th or 5th century production. If it is not-and it isn’t-every modern version onlyist is defending a lie when they point to the so-called “oldest and best” manuscripts in support of their Westcott & Hort Onlyism defense of modern translations, and their attacks against the King James Bible.

The anachronisms contained in both the Codex Sinaiticus and Shepherd of Hermes give not only credibility to Simonides claim of authorship, but at most, prove that both manuscripts were not/are not early manuscripts as claimed by modern version onlyist “scholars”, but rather a modern hoax. The entire modern version debate builds its house of cards on the Codex Sinaiticus. With the foundation being built on a lie, every manuscript that bootstraps its relevance to the Sinaiticus falls, and thus the question James White asks in his book, The King James Only Controversy, “Can You Trust the Modern Translations?” is a resounding “absolutely NOT!”.
