01f4d8a89c32954bcd3d637b2774e991_dominique_alexanderSince Donald Trump’s presidential victory on November 8, 2016, rioters have taken to the streets to protest a democratically elected president. Although the liberal media claims these are “peaceful” protests, there have been numerous death threats against Donald Trump, calls from celebrities for his assassination, signs demanding that Melania Trump be raped, and recently, an ambulance was delayed due to protesters blocking traffic resulting in the death of the father of a 4 year old girl.

The protests continued this week at First Baptist Church, home of Pastor Robert Jeffress, led by Next Generation Action activist, Dominique Alexander. Alexander has an extensive criminal record and organized the Dallas protest that led to the shooting deaths of 5 police officers. Dallas news also reports that Alexander had been implicated in causing several bodily injury to a 2 year old child.

In video footage obtained by FOX news, Alexander is heard telling supporters that First Baptist Church is the “Mother Mecca” of all racist churches. Did you catch that. The M-O-T-H-E-R  M-E-C-C-A of racist churches. For those uninformed about Islam, Mecca is considered the holiest site among Islamic adherents.

The irony of this is that Trump and his supporters have been repeatedly accused-ad nauseam-of being “Islamophobic”. Yet somehow, this usage of an Islamic “holy” site is acceptable rhetoric in attempting to vilify a Baptist church? Imagine how CNN, New York Times, Huff Post, and all the-to borrow from Michael Savage-Press Klux Klan media would have reacted if Donald Trump had stood in front of any church, and called it the “Mother Mecca” of churches. Obama, Hillary, the DNC, Southern Poverty Law Center, the NAACP, CAIR, et al, would have all called for his resignation (and likely his head-literally).

Jeffress is an outspoken Trump supporter, and the narrative that liberal media has attempted to create (unsuccessfully) is that anyone who voted for Trump is a racist. And why is Trump racist? Because they say so (classic circular reasoning and political correctness vitriol abound among their greatest arguments). Never mind that Hillary Clinton used racial slurs (“N” word) around her chef, or the Clinton Foundation’s defrauding of millions of blacks in Haiti, or Bill Clinton, with Hillary’s acquiescence, snubbing his black son, Danney Williams, or that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Trump Riots are funded by George Soros, a known Nazi collaborator. But Robert Jeffress? Seriously? I have my disagreements with Jeffress on a few doctrinal issues, but Jeffress? a racist? Never mind that his staff is comprised of African-Americans (Jephte Fanor, Pastoral Care Associate) and Hispanics (Kevin Batista, Minister of Missions and Evangelism). This accusation is a gross defamation of a good man, and is irresponsible, reckless, callous, and hateful. But it’s what we’ve come to expect from chronic fabricators among the Left, desperate enough to create the most elaborate Stephen King style narratives necessary for their “cause”.

Furthermore, it is also obvious that Alexander is attempting to associate “hate” and “racism” against ALL churches to minimize the influence of churches throughout the country. A “guilt-by-association” tactic: if you attend a gospel preaching, Bible-believing church with a white pastor, you’re a racist. It’s worth noting that neither Alexander nor any of the Trump rioters are protesting in front of BLACK churches who voted for Trump.

It is beyond ironic that the Left has resorted to such insipid gutter-ball tactics. But the fact that the Alt-Leftists have consistently couched their ad hominem attacks in “Islamophobic” rhetoric, while at the same time freely using Islamic sites as analogies to smear churches is the height of hypocrisy…and quite racist.

NOTE: THIS IS THE ROUGH DRAFT (Without conclusion or closing statements) OF MY PETITION TO THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE: PLEASE SUBMIT SUGGESTIONS, COMMENTS AS I WILL BE EDITING AND SUBMITTING THIS BY NOVEMBER 14, 2016. (Spelling & Grammar check has not been done yet for the Grammar Nazi’s on the Left, whose comments will be ignored and labeled spam)

 

Democrats are petitioning the Electoral College Commission to disregard the Electoral Vote that made Donald Trump President-Elect. Their grounds are based on false charges against the lawfully elected president. Most of these false charges were discovered through Wikileaks revelations where Democrat strategists conspired to accuse Trump of racism, sexism, homophobia, and xenophobia (not to mention that they also conspired against Democrat Nominee, Bernie Sanders).

The United States of America is a REPUBLIC, and as such, the Electoral College has been defended by the Supreme Court of the United States (Ray v. Blair, 343 U.S. 214 [1951])and is based on a CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT (US Const Amend XII).  Petitions that have been submitted by Hillary Clinton supporters are based solely on emotional reasons: i.e., they didn’t like the result, yet no distinct challenges have been raised against the constitutionality of the Electoral College process. Even if such challenges were raised, it would be fundamentally unfair to visit such issues AFTER a presidential election has already been decided. This is not the first election decided by Electoral College, a process known to Democrats prior to the election. Democrats can not simply offer a challenge now to the results of the election when they failed to raise the issue prior to the election.

The reasons that Trump should remain President-Elect are as follows:

1. The Electorate provides a fair balance against corruption. For example. During this campaign, President Obama encourage illegal aliens to vote to become citizens. ICE agents arrested numerous illegal aliens who rebutted their arrests by claiming that Obama promised they would become citizens if they voted. This caused an influx of votes likely not caught by thousands of illegal aliens who had no right to vote.

Furthermore, the majority of cities wherein Hillary Clinton has derived her popular vote are within large cities with millions of citizens, such as Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Miami, Boston, Ann Arbor, etc…all of which traditionally vote Democrat (and DID vote Democrat in the current election). By analogy, if one city in California had 50 million Democrats, while the rest of the country had 49 million Republicans, this would have the effect of the entire country’s fate being dictated by a single geographical location. This is one of the reasons why the Electoral College was implemented in the first place. Moreover, it is well known that certain cities (like Chicago) have been gerrymandered to include a larger portion of known Democratic supporters.

2. When Hillary Clinton conceded the election, she in fact did NOT have the popular vote. The additional votes she gained came several hours after she conceded the election, and ALL of them were coming from “Blue” counties that were still at 76% -95% of a complete vote count.

3. Evidence of election fraud attempts were found all over the country, particularly in Philadelphia where voting machines were converting votes for Donald Trump/Mike Pence into votes for Hillary Clinton. Moreover, Hillary Clinton was known to have met in private with the Elections Director of the Broward County Polling Division in Broward County, Florida, just weeks before the election.

4. Project Veritas uncovered even more evidence of election fraud, capturing on video Democrats inciting riots at Trump rallies, staging false accusations, and bragging about “bussing” in repeat voters in multiple districts.

5. During the debates for presidency, Wikileaks uncovered numerous occasions where Democratic members leaked debate questions to debate moderators (i.e., Donna Brazile) giving Hillary Clinton an unfair advantage in debates that helped shape public opinion on who the better candidate was for the presidency.

Based on the foregoing factors, there is no way to determine honestly and accurately whether or not votes for Hillary were legally submitted and acquired.

 Hillary Clinton should have never been permitted to run for president.

6. Hillary Clinton was the first presidential candidate be under FBI investigation for corruption: TWICE. Hillary Clinton deleted several thousand emails AFTER receiving an order from Congress to produce emails containing classified information on a private server.

7. The Clinton Foundation is still under FBI investigation. http://www.breitbart.com/2016-presidential-race/2016/11/06/fbi-still-investigating-clinton-foundation/

8. The Clinton Foundation has been determined through investigations to have defrauded the people of Haiti by promising funds to restore their country through charity (see Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer).

9. Recent evidence has also uncovered potential involvement by Democrats in a large pedophile ring. (See Pizza Gate, https://dcpizzagate.wordpress.com/2016/11/07/first-blog-post/ )

10. Hillary Clinton has claimed be the champion of women’s rights, but there is documented evidence that she intimidated and threatened sex abuse victims of Bill Clinton (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jan/14/hillary-clinton-haunted-by-efforts-to-destroy-bill/, and http://www.dailywire.com/news/9585/9-times-hillary-clinton-threatened-smeared-or-amanda-prestigiacomo ). Furthermore, there are victims that have claimed that Hillary herself had raped them (Cathy O’Brien, Personal Testimony, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pzp6VR7zJ8)

11. Hillary Clinton assisted in the overthrow of a democratically elected president in Honduras which led to the assassination of an activist, Berta Caceres, who was outspoken against Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the coup. http://www.democracynow.org/2016/3/11/before_her_assassination_berta_caceres_singled

If I have a job that is 30 miles away, having a car is not optional. My town may have only one mechanic. However, he’s a foul mouth jerk. I have no other choice but to sit through his diatribes and complain about his language, and even his sexist remarks. I explain I’m a Christian, and his language is offensive. Nevertheless, his record for fixing cars is impeccable. Nobody in town disputes that. He replies that I can take my car some where else. But, if I don’t get to work, I will lose my job and be unable to support my family.

I’m going to keep voicing my complaints about his attitude, but since he’s the only choice I have that I know can fix the car, I’m stuck. Allowing him to fix my car is not an endorsement of his behavior, but I have to weigh options against less than favorable alternatives.

This is how I feel about Donald Trump*. The recent release of an audio of him degrading women is despicable. There’s no excuse for it. It is offensive to me as a Christian, as a husband, and as a father. However, at this point, it’s Hillary or Trump, and in spite of Trump’s immoral rhetoric, he’s on the right track politically to getting America back in the right direction. Furthermore, Trump has a Godly running mate in Mike Pence, who I hope can be a good influence on Trump. Christians keep losing ground every four years, and our choices keep getting worse. Perhaps, if Trump wins, and the church does OUR job, the future candidates will give us greater options.

Liberal Logic Fail:

All immoral people should not be president

Clintons & Trump are immoral

Ergo Trump should not be president

What liberals and the Gestapo Media want from these Trump Tapes, is to make this the standard on which the election should be decided. However, the liberals ignore Bill Clinton’s track record of raping women, and Hillary Clinton intimidating them into silence and laughing about the victim of child rape she attacked on behalf of her client in 1975. To further explicate their hypocrisy, these liberals recently made a spectacle out of Trump with a naked statute placed all over the country (it was a trending topic on Twitter called #NakedTrump), which are now being sold on E-Bay as miniature figures. The double standards of the far left are astounding, and yet they expect us to drop support of Trump over an asinine comment he made 11 years ago while virtually silent on these scandals surrounding the Clinton Crime Syndicate.

Moreover, we are on the brink of an INEVITABLE nuclear war with Russia thanks to Hillary & Obama. Hillary even helped Russia get the fuel for the war. Recent email leaks have tied Hillary to using the Clinton Foundation to secure uranium for Russia (for ignorant liberals, uranium is used to make nuclear weapons).

Leaks have also exposed Hillary staff rigging the election that knocked her Democratic opponent, Bernie Sanders, out of the race: which subsequently lead to the deaths of several DNC staff. And the DNC debacle isn’t the only deadly statistic surrounding the “Clinton Body Count”.

The Clinton’s talk of supporting the black community is a joke. Hillary ridiculed the disparate sentencing schemes that she claims unduly subject blacks to harsher sentences under mandatory drug laws. Perhaps it is her failing health that provoked a bout of amnesia since it was her husband that passed the mandatory sentences for those crimes in the mid-late 1990’s. Hillary opined that blacks were “super-predators” that should be “made to heal [like a dog]”. (That preceding link is from a source very antagonistic to Donald Trump. Thus any Black Lives Matter advocates reading this have no grounds for claiming bias.). Hillary considered a Grand Wizard of the KKK , Robert Byrd, (The KKK endorses Hillary) a great man and hero, which was defended by Bill Clinton because “he was just trying to get elected”.

Hillary helped stage a coup in Honduras, overthrowing a democratically elected leader, and leading to the assassination of a political activist that opposed Hillary’s involvement. Of course, the model for Hillary’s actions are based on a Satanic socialist she calls a hero named, Saul Alinsky. In fact, Hillary’s college thesis was written on Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals”. Is it any wonder that the terrorist group, TALIBAN, has now also endorsed Hillary?

When the Clinton’s left the White House, they reported that they were “dead broke“. Since then, they have acquired literally millions upon millions of dollars through defrauding Blacks and Latinos (see Clinton Cash) and by accepting foreign donations from terrorist countries, while keeping 96% of the profits through their various foundations.

foreign-country-donations-to-the-clinton-foundation

Wikileaks has also release a series of new documents further exposing the Clinton’s scandalous empire to mandate open borders and ignore terrorist threats.

Hillary has made this a political issue in the same manner she did with comments about a Mrs. Universe contestant. Though shortly after politicizing the issue with a “Mr. Trump, Words Matter” campaign, email leaks revealed she attempted to have the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, killed by a drone strike. Keep in mind, her “words matter” slogan was to convince America that Trump shouldn’t be around nuclear codes because of a ridiculous comment he allegedly made about “Miss Piggy”, which is clearly far more dangerous than threatening to drone-strike your nemesis.

I could write more, but I’d like to post this before the election. The list is virtually endless. The Hillary campaign is an extension of the massive globalist agenda propagated by Obama (although it certainly wasn’t started by him) that is deliberately designed to bring all Americans “to heal” to the ruling elite of the world. Hillary & Obama, with the help of George Soros, are bent on destroying what’s left of Godly American values and culture, and enslaving ever color and creed in America under the umbrella of a United Nations dictatorship. And according to brainwashed liberals, we should just let them do it, because even if Trump is the only mechanic competent enough to fix the American “car”, he said some rotten words 11 years ago. I won’t excuse Trump’s comment, and neither should any of his supporters. Neither must we remain silent on issues that we are still in disagreement with him over while continuing to support his campaign. But those who think Hillary should win by default because Trump didn’t have a filter towards women 11 years ago are in dire need of a thorough brain x-ray. We are not minimizing the severity and crudeness of Trump’s comment. But good night, if Bill & Hillary can get away with murder, treason, rape, leaking classified emails, and then hiding the evidence by hiring a specialist after staff were ordered to destroy their phones with hammers why on earth SHOULD we “dump Trump”??

I personally think Billy Bush saved this audio for a “rainy day”.  The video shows that the microphone belonged to him. He asked for it back when they parted on the Days of Our Lives set. It would be too risky to bribe Trump with it. So I believe he sat on it for several years and when the 2016 debates came around, opportunity knocked, and he was paid a hefty sum of money by a media outlet who knew it would be critical in the election. Again, I haven’t looked at all the facts yet, and this is my opinion, but Billy Bush is related to George Bush, who has recently supported Hillary Clinton. It was his mic, and this information has been held for 11 years, and released within one month of the election. Billy has recently been added to the Today Show. His net worth is reportedly around 9$M, but we know that’s chump-change compared to the wealth of the Clintons and Bushes. Thus knowing what the leak would do to his own reputation, the pay off would have to be worth it. But I seriously doubt liberals will expect as much from Billy Bush, as they expect from Donald Trump. None of the liberals on social media are calling on Billy to step down from any of his television engagements. Only Trump is being eviscerated. Enough said.

When the infamous DNC Leaks hit the presses, one of the first accusations made by Hillary Clinton and her henchmen (and I mean, “henchmen”, given that 4 people are now dead linked to the DNC Leaks) shouted was that Russia was involved to help rig the election for Donald Trump (even though US intelligence as well as Israeli intelligence have debunked that theory).

However, this is not new news. What IS interesting is that Hillary is being investigated over the emails on her personal server, a Russian took credit for hacking it, and Crooked Hillary immediately denounced him as a lying criminal. Revealed in the DNC Leaks is this gem:

Hillary Clinton’s team quickly shot down a claim from a Romanian hacker that he had breached her private email server while she was secretary of State. “There is absolutely no basis to believe the claims made by this criminal from his prison cell. In addition to the fact he offers no proof to support his claims, his descriptions of Secretary Clinton’s server are inaccurate. It is unfathomable that he would have gained access to her emails and not leaked them the way he did to his other victims,” the Clinton camp wrote in a statement. Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, known as “Guccifer,” told several news outlets that he had easily hacked into her email server on more than one occasion. His hack into the email account of a close Clinton ally first brought her private email to light. Clinton has claimed throughout the investigations into her use of a private server that it was never infiltrated by foreign hackers as critics accuse her of putting confidential materials at risk. Lazar was recently extradited to the United States and is currently in prison in Alexandria, Va., facing other cybercrime charges. (Link)

So why was Team Hillary so adamant about rejecting the notion of Russian involvement over her private emails, and qualifying that “he offers no proof to support his claims”, when she immediately accused Russia without any “proof to support” such claims after the DNC Leak? Post DNC Leak, there was absolutely nothing offered by the DNC in the manner of “proof to support” their claims, it was mere speculation, yet over the personal email server, even after a confession by a hacker, the claim of Russian involvement was brushed off.

It seems Team Clinton is fond of using capricious tactics when it suits them. Given how the DNC stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders, nothing is much of a surprise when it comes to the dishonesty and underhanded scheming of Team Hillary.

Prince was a part of the most destructive times of my life. As a teenager and in my early adult years as a guitar player and vocalist for several rock bands, Prince embodied everything I wanted to be as a rock star musician. I had watched Purple Rain probably 20 or so times. Along with Dream Theater (John Petrucci), Yngwie Malmsteen, Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Nuno Bettencourt, Ritchie Kotzen, Vinnie Moore, Michael Angelo Batio, et al, Prince had an enormous influence on my guitar playing as a teenager. As a troubled teen, I was obsessed with guitar and singing. I mastered all of the “shredders”, and learned to sing like Sebastian Bach from Skid Row, and “Mili” from Steelheart. I was in several different bands, ran karaoke as a DJ, and partied like it was 1999. My life revolved around drugs, alcohol, fornication, and the dream of living like a rock star.

In the early 1990’s, I felt empty. My father had led me to Christ at a young age, and my grandparents were devout Bible believers, and I knew that the life I was leading was going nowhere fast. A few friends of mine invited me to a charismatic church, and I was introduced to bands like Stryper, Petra, Deliverance and Angelica. I had no idea that Christians could “shred” like Oz Fox and Dennis Cameron, and that “Christian” singers like Michael Sweet and John Schlitt could wail like Mili. However, my experience eventually became no different from when I played in the secular bands, so I went from an Assembly of God church to a more conservative church- the United Pentacostal Church. I never did speak in tongues, and that caused me to quit church because obviously God didn’t want me, and I apparently didn’t “have enough faith”.

Then I was invited to a youth conference in Michigan where I met Peter Ruckman. The “chalk talk” was about the Devil’s attempt to strike out Christians. I thought I was the only one in the audience and Ruckman had someone who’d followed me around and gave him fodder on me for his sermon. I wasn’t about to get struck out, so I started reading Ruckman books, learned the truth about the charismatic movement and tongues, Christian Rock, and went to an independent Baptist church where I eventually surrendered to ministry under the preaching of Dr. Joe Miller.

I have had a rough road since those days, and had backslidden a few times, and in between went to a few Bible colleges and law school, and just recently-and FINALLY-earned a PhD from Calvary Christian College & Seminary. I’ve been active in ministering to homeless people, prisoners, and passing out tracts almost every day of the week. My drive to seek the lost, study and memorize the Scripture, was mostly a result of talking to Dr. Ruckman at that youth conference.

Prince led a life of debauchery, drugs, promiscuity, and thought he was a god. Prince will answer for the lives he helped destroy by his influence. On the same day Prince died, Peter Ruckman also passed away at 94 years old. Ruckman trusted in the finished work of Christ, and even at 93 years old, in poor health, was in the streets preaching about the cross, and about the real Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6), the Lord Jesus Christ.

Say what you will about Ruckman, his “weird doctrines” (often a misrepresentation and distortion of things he actually said and wrote), his crude speech, or accuse him of claiming the KJV replaced the so-called originals and was a “reinspired translation”, what you can not do is negate the passion he had for lost people, and for his defense of the Bible. I have never seen a man more wrongfully criticized, misquoted, unfairly vilified, and misrepresented than Dr. Peter Ruckman, even by some of my favorite Baptist preachers. Nevertheless, Ruckman stood strong, he never retired, and kept fighting for the fundamentals of the faith, for the integrity of the King James Bible, and the battle for the souls of people like Prince on their way to hell up to his last dying breath.

Ruckman is one of the reasons that I chose to follow Christ and walk away from a destructive life that in part was influenced by men like Prince. I never agreed with Ruckman on everything, but he will be one of the influences in my life that I will be eager to meet in heaven.

I don’t know how Prince spent the last hours of his life, but I hope anyone reading this that was a fan of his doesn’t spend their last days in rejection of Christ. I would like to leave off here with a sermon by brother Ruckman on “Things You Can Lose”  and read the tract at the top of our website, “You Die, Then What?”

Peter Ruckman Obituary

In Memory of

Dr. Peter S. Ruckman

November 19, 1921 – April 21, 2016
Obituary
Peter Sturges Ruckman, November 19, 1921 – April 21, 2016 Matthew 25:21, “His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Dr. Ruckman is survived by his wife Pamela Ruckman, married 27 years, Pensacola, FL; and ten children; Diana Walker, Alabama; Priscilla and Michael Thornton, Pensacola, FL; David Ruckman, Pensacola, FL; Mike and Lynette Ruckman, Pensacola, FL; Peter Jr. and Heidi Ruckman, Chicago, IL; Jeremy and Valerie Huggins, Wichita, KS; Bryan Huggins, Ft. Walton Beach, FL; Michael and Lydia Huggins, Pensacola, FL; Laura Ruckman; Rachel Ruckman; 18 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by John Hamilton Ruckman, father; Mary Armstrong-Ruckman, mother; Marion Ruckman, sister; and John Ruckman, brother. Peter Sturges Ruckman was born physically on November 19, 1921, to John and Mary Ruckman in Wilmington, Delaware.
At a young age the family moved to Topeka, Kansas, where he grew up while going back to Wilmington during the summertime. He had a brother, Johnny, and a sister, Marion. Coming from a long line of military men, he followed in their footsteps by enlisting in the Army and served in World War II as a DI in hand-to-hand combat in the Philippines and spent time in Japan monitoring the radio broadcasts at Radio Tokyo. But at the age of 29 years old, he enlisted in a different Army. A spiritual Army. On March 14, 1949, Dr. Ruckman signed up in the Lord’s Army by accepting Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at the radio station in Pensacola, Florida. He was lead to the Lord by a Baptist preacher, Bro. Hugh Pyle. At one time he wanted to be a “30 year man” and retire from the Army. He now has done over two “30 year hitches” in the Lord’s Army, the “right” Army.
Through the 67 years he has served the Lord, his vision and his burden was to reach lost souls for Jesus Christ and to teach people that we have a Bible that is perfect and infallible, that you can hold in your hands – the Authorized King James 1611 Version. He had a burden especially to reach young men for Christ and get them rooted and grounded in the Word of God so they would be equipped to defend that Book against the agnostic scholars who try to rob you of your faith in your King James Bible. From this desire, Pensacola Bible Institute was started. It continues today from Dr. Ruckman prayerfully and wisely choosing a man, Brian Donovan, to train and equip to carry on the work of the school and church after he has gone on to Glory. Dr. Ruckman had pastored for well over 50 years; including a church in Bay Minette, AL, Brent Baptist Church, and Bible Baptist Church in Pensacola since 1973. He also was the Founder and President of Pensacola Bible Institute which was started in September of 1965. Dr. Ruckman was a man of many talents. He was a Preacher, Teacher, Street Preacher, Artist, Writer, played the tuba and the harmonica, had studied the Oriental religions, studied martial arts – Taekwondo and Aikido, and started playing hockey as a goalie at 68 years old with his last game being on his 84th birthday. He also played racquetball, enjoyed mullet fishing, was an avid reader, liked to garden and had a small “truck farm” as he called it, and was still swimming “laps” with a snorkel at 93. He had a profound knowledge of the Scripture and its correlation with History. God gave him a special gift to be able to tie in world events and History to the Bible. And, then, of course, he dearly loved “kids” and “dogs” (especially German Shepherds!). He loved to have them running all around the place. He loved to see them play and laugh. His special treat was to give the kids gummy bears at each service. And if he ran out (to moms’ horror), he would give them strawberry Twizzlers – or – chocolate!
One of the things dearest to Dr. Ruckman’s heart was his burden and love for doing the Prison Ministry. He looked forward to each time he had an opportunity to go into the jails and minister to the men and women there, especially the yearly 2-week long summer “junkets.” That was his “Christmas.” Words cannot express the appreciation and gratitude for all the love, support, friendship and prayers of so many saints through all the years; some for many years and some just a few. Through many dangers, toils, and snares he has already come. After a fall in 2015 and many months of declining health, he is now at HOME with his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
God gave him a “Full Cup.” Arrangements under the direction of Eastern Gate Memorial Funeral Home, Pensacola, FL.

On March 8, 2016, in a blatantly dishonest diatribe against me, James White labeled King James Only advocates as “cultists”. What was his premise? That the King James doesn’t follow the erroneous Granville Sharp rule (“GSR”), which even Dan Wallace admitted is inconsistently applied throughout the NT, and can really be narrowed down to 2 passages (Titus 2:13, and 2 Peter 1:1). Essentially, James White accused the KJV of diminishing the deity of Christ based on these two passages (which he is wrong about anyway even IF he was right about the GSR, which he’s not) Now I have a ton of arguments against this view alone, but only one is necessary to completely blow White’s theory out of the water, and expose him for the dishonest hypocrite that he is.

Here is the most simple, common sense rebuttal to White’s blathering. In numerous responses to KJV advocates who point out that modern versions alter dozens of passages that eliminate the deity of Christ (John 1:18, 1 Tim 3:16, Rom 9:5, 1 Cor 10:9, 1 John 5:7-8, Dan 3:25, etc…), modern versionists like White claim we are mistaken to allege modern versions attack the deity of Christ IF THE DEITY OF CHRIST CAN BE ESTABLISHED BY OTHER PASSAGES. In other words, to White, it is irrelevant that even if KJVO advocates were right about those verses, it doesn’t matter because the charge can not be substantiated that modern versions alter the deity of Christ if His deity can be shown elsewhere.

Now here’s the kicker for that kind of defense against someone who in the same breath accuses KJVO advocates of being “cultists”. Let’s assume for argument’s sake White is right about the GSR in the KJV. IF THE KJV CAN SHOW THE DEITY OF CHRIST CAN BE PROVEN FROM OTHER PASSAGES, THEN WHITE CAN’T REALLY CRITICIZE KJVOS FOR BEING “CULTISTS” NOW CAN HE!! White always claims “inconsistency is the sign of a failed argument”, but he refuses to apply his own rules consistently. If the ability to show the deity of Christ in other places among modern versions vindicates THOSE versions, then how is it that the same analysis doesn’t vindicate the KJV if the deity of Christ can be shown in other passages if White is right about 2 passages where he [erroneously] contends the GSR proves it diminishes the deity of Christ? The deity of Christ in the KJV can be established in John 1:1, John 1:18, Romans 9:5, Matt 1:23, Isaiah 7:4, 9:6, Mark 2:7-10, John 8:58, John 10:31-35, Phil 2:6, Matt 19:6, Col 2:9-10, Heb 1:8, John 20:28, John 8:24, 1 John 5:7-8, 1 Tim 3:16 and a plethora of other OT and NT passages.

White uses equivocation and a special pleading fallacy of applying a rule to vindicate his modern version onlyism on the same grounds that he labels KJVO advocates cultists for. If the existence of the deity of Christ can be found outside of the verses that KJVOs attack modern versions over, then why doesn’t that same rule apply to White’s attacks against the KJV even if he was right about the GSR rule? The answer to that is simple, White knows that KJVOs have a better case against him, and to keep listeners from fairly judging both sides of the issue, he tries to put Bible believing Christians in the same category as other cultists like the Watchtower (in spite of the fact that some of the most aggressive defenders of the King James Bible are 1689 LBC Calvinists, like him). Ironically, the men behind White’s modern version onlyism were avid occultists and rationalists who did not believe in the inerrancy of Scripture (See, Heretics Behind Modern Bible Versions Supported By James White).

Regarding White’s charge about Titus 2:13, the result of White’s absurd assessment is that God permitted the Roman Catholic church to have the accurate readings (stored on library shelves, no less) while the rest of the church “erroneously” relied on these verses to support the Trinity for 1800 years. White claims that it “wasn’t the King James translators faults”, which means that not only were the King James translators ignorant of a 19th century Greek grammar rule in the 17th century, but so, too, was every Bible believing Christian that was martyred over these texts who translated it the same way until a bunch of rationalists decided it should be interpreted differently, rationalists that now include James White and his ilk. Anti King James Only advocates frequently ask us the dumbest question ever, “Where was the Bible before 1611?”, but if you look at their position, NONE OF US HAD IT BEFORE THE “BEST” and “OLDEST” MANUSCRIPTS WERE FOUND BETWEEN 1840-1881.

By James A, ThM,

[Updated below with how James White aids a fake Muslim]

 

On March 8, 2016, “Dr” James White of Alpha & Omega ministries (which is kind of an ironic name for a ministry who endorses a Bible [NASB] that removes “Alpha and Omega” from Revelation 1:11. Revelation 1:11 KJV, Revelation 1:11, NASB) performed a character assassination ritual on his Dividing Line show attacking yours truly, kind of (beginning that the 29:00 mark). His aim was at Dr. James Ach, who has not been at Do Right Christians for nearly a year now (a fact that has been well-known) and thus it is already clear that White didn’t do even the least bit of homework before putting on his papal mitre. White lied several times, used unconfirmed gossip, and blatantly slandered me. This has been par for the course for White, and virtually none of his followers bothered to fact check his assertions (one who tried to, “Jonathon”, was yelled at during the show which you’ll see if you watch it at the 44:50 mark).

I’m going to go point by point and shred White’s bogus diatribe against me which all started over a screenshot I posted about his bogus bike riding stats, which he never adequately answered, and even lied about. But think about this. White has ignored our Twitter account for 3 years. Of all the things he chose to respond to: not Calvinism, not King James Only, not amillennialism, or any of the other things we’ve challenged him on, he chose to get angry over what we posted about his bike riding stats! And this guy calls ME unstable? Matt Estes was right, I DID post it as a joke even though the numbers were actually off, it was White that took it to an entirely different level.

“Big Brother”

White starts off with accusing me of cooperating with “Big Brother” because I reported 2 tweets of his to Twitter API. They suspended his account because they confirmed my allegations that White was publicly accusing me of a crime, the crime of stalking. In White’s world, accusing someone of a crime is not a big deal. In the real world, false allegations of criminal activity can have real consequences to those of us who live in the real world. If anyone was attempting to get “Big Brother” involved in getting a Christian in trouble with the government, it was White, not me.

Secondly, since when did Twitter become a government agency? Is White and his followers so incompetent that they don’t know who “Big Brother” is? White even stated my actions would set a bad precedent that allows government to attack other Christians. This is a major category fallacy since Twitter is a privately owned social media engine, and not an agency of the government. Twitter has some dubious policies, and are especially biased against conservatives, but far from being the FBI, CIA, NSA, State Police, Obama Administration, Department of Justice, local police, Homeland Security, et al. THOSE are Big Brother agencies, NOT TWITTER. It takes the most gullible sycophant to swallow this charismatically emotional driven complaint from White.

Furthermore, White claimed that his “freedom of speech” and First Amendment was infringed upon. I’m sorry, what? Again, a category error where Twitter is not the government of which the First Amendment is directed at (federal, and states through the 14th Amendment). Restrictions or liberties are not enforced by Twitter, they are the responsibilities of governments. Furthermore, First Amendment protections to not protect persons from yelling fire in a movie theater. Free speech does not entitle people to cause riots. If free speech were a carte blanche to say whatever you wanted without exception, there would be no such thing as defamation laws (the legal term that incorporates both slander and libel). White demonstrates he is completely ignorant of law.

Finally, I reported ONLY the tweet that falsely accused me of a criminal act. I did NOT report the vile tweets that ridiculed or vilified me. I reported ONLY the tweets that he posted for Big Brother to see that were false accusations of criminal acts. What White DIDN’T show his followers were the other tweets that were still left on his page, including the ones he sent me calling me evil (yet if I tweet HIM, it’s stalking). Twitter did not delete his comments because I was “afraid” of being “exposed”, but because White made false criminal accusations. Period. White tries to convince others it was based on his content of “exposing” someone, which clearly was not the case.

[We won’t say how White went to “Big Brother” Youtube to get videos of him removed]

Mother’s Basement

At 31:34, White says I’m an anonymous troll (which I have all  my information except my full last name for personal reasons because of something that has happened to my children of which police have yet to do anything about). My college is listed which can be verified, and I have talked with numerous friends on Twitter at length over the phone who know exactly who I am, where I live, what church I go to, etc… Funny however, that White used an anonymous person, “Hakim”, to get most of the dirt he got on Ergun Caner, and endorses several other another anonymous accounts ( one who’s actually an attorney out of Georgia).

But living in my mother’s basement? Seriously? What kind of adult says something like that? And what kind of followers listen to such a childish, immature comment and claps? I thought the days of the ‘your mama” jokes were over.

White continues I am in my mid 30s (I am 43) and never worked a job (even though profile says I have a ThM [recently finished my PhD but thesis hasn’t been graded] and am paralegal). Of course, White here is fishing for information, but he’s still making false assumptions which shows how bad of a psychic he is.

Do Nothing But Attack People

White says I do “nothing but attack people”. He’s an “apologist”. Apologists by nature attack people all day long. White attacks King James Only advocates all the time (even accuses us of being a cult) and non Calvinists whom he claims have “Anti Calvinist Derangement Syndrome”. Do you really think that those of us who believe the deity of Christ, the Trinity, the virgin birth, the death burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, creation, cessation, salvation by grace through faith, are going to quietly sit by and NOT say something when White travels the world referring to us in the same vernacular he uses to describe Jehovah’s Witnesses? Are you kidding me? We defend ourselves from HIS ATTACKS, and we KJVOS are the ones stalking HIM?

But if James White hounds someone like William Lane Craig, who refuses to debate him because he’s a jerk, then for White, it’s OK.

whitetrolling - Copy

James White also chased Ergun Caner for about ten years.

Now I don’t have a problem with White chasing anyone because he’s doing what he thinks is his duty as an apologist to do (for argument’s sake, not that he’s right about the content of what he’s attacking them over). But what I write about White is based on the exact same conviction, yet he applies a different standard for himself. White’s doctrine’s are heretical, dangerous, and misleading Christians all over the world, and I have the same right to call him out as he believes he does to me. But only one of us is accusing the other of “stalking”.

“He Doesn’t Go Out There And Do Debates”

No, I don’t. I go into the highways and hedges and compel them to come (Luke 14:23) because the Bible admonishes that kind of soul winning (Acts 5:42) instead of debating people (Isaiah 58:4, Romans 1:29, Titus 3:10). Soul winning IS a form of debating, but White has people convinced that formal debates are a Biblical standard and a measure of success which is the furthest from the truth. There are a number of reasons why debates are not always successful (which I will explain another time). White, however, uses debates as a rhetorical rebuttal to those who argue with him on any given matter. For example, when White “debated” Chris Pinto, when others ask about the fraudulent Codex Sinaiticus, instead of White (or his followers) answering simple questions in follow up to additional information that has come out, White simply responds, “I debated that subject” and, bam, case closed, don’t question me no more, bro. White points to his debates and declares that he won, and that is supposed to just end the discussion.

Frankly, all of White’s debates are irrelevant because the bulk of the debate is what he says AFTER the debate, and that’s how he designs his debates. This is why White would never win a debate with William Lane Craig because Craig knows how to exploit his many logical fallacies, and why White only challenged Craig on Twitter, instead of calling him or his staff where he knew he could have had a formal discussion about a debate. Craig had to hear about White’s challenge second hand. But White’s followers heard it long enough on his Twitter and his DL show that it was enough for his followers to help his ego by declaring “Looky, Looky, Craig won’t debate White, he’s skeered”. That’s really just how dishonest and egotistical this tyrant is.

Cooperating With Muslims, Atheists, Catholics, Oh My!

This one was particularly rib-tickling. At 32:20, White claims that I follow around URLS where his name is mentioned “anywhere on the internet”, and jump in the conversations to help Muslims, atheists, Catholics, “he don’t care”. Wow. Any proof of that? Of course not. Was there a screenshot? Nope. You mean to tell me White took the time the screenshot my comments about his bike riding stats, but didn’t gather evidence to show how I’m cooperating with Muslims and Catholics? Again, more blatant outright fabrications. Anyone that follows me knows that I have 4 major issues with White: Anti King James, Hyper Calvinism, Amillennialism, and threatening a rape victim.

In fact, I have even AGREED with James White on certain modern day issues like the gay agenda, and EVEN ENDORSED HIS BOOK on the subject. I don’t disagree with White about EVERYTHING and have no problem giving others credit for the things that they get right. Do you think White would have that same sentiment toward me? Of course not. I am mature enough to take the high road when it comes to certain conflicts even though I know my theological adversaries won’t always give me that same courtesy (like White).

Interestingly enough, James White endorses an anonymous account named “Hakim Ramallah”. Hakim, or rather, Jonathan Autry, gives the impression that he is either Muslim or former Muslim-which would make sense given that he was the one Ergun Caner sued because he was one of the anonymous sources James White was using for information on Ergun Caner during the time White was pursuing Caner for claiming to be an ex-Jihadist (and for the record, I don’t believe Caner’s story, either).

So why is White endorsing a fake Muslim Twitter account, particularly after he spent so many years attacking Caner for the same thing, not mention having the gall to accuse me of “supporting Muslims”. What a hypocrite. (Yes, Yes, White trolls, I know, “Hakim’s” level of fakeness isn’t nearly what Caner did. It’s too bad I even have to express that disclaimer since White’s followers don’t appear to see the irony and hypocrisy in just the smallest appearance of evil here).

The Gospel Is Irrelevant to “These People”

By “these people” White is referring to all King James Only advocates, which is kind of ironic considering that one of the most aggressive King James Only advocates that has written extensively about White’s erroneous anti KJVO views is a guy named Will Kinney-A CALVINIST. So while White condemns all KJVO advocates as cultists, one of the rebuttals I have to him and even challenged him to debate with me was proving that KJVOs are cultists when there are many among his own Calvinist brethren who are KJVO. So if all KJVOS are Christ denying, gospel rejecting heretics, that would include 1689 LBC Calvinist confessionalists like Kinney and scores of others (Brandenberg, Pinto etc…)

Independent Fundamental Baptists care far more about the gospel than White, we take it to the streets on a daily basis. It is White who makes it hard for us by criticizing our Bible, our methods, our sincerity, our heritage, and our message (which can be seen in the About Us section, and the above gospel tab, You Die, Then What? By the way, we have a gospel message on our website, where is White’s on his?)

Why Was I Going To Do This In The First Place

White asks a good question, why is he even responding to my graphic about the bike? His harsh reaction is what made it appear he had something to hide. Most narcissists react that way when you call them out over little things.

At first, White accused me of COMPRESSING the graphic. He later accused me of ALTERING it.

whitegraph

Of course, once White tried to explain the numbers, he had to back peddle a little, and lie. The stats I pointed out and deduced were from ONLY the bike riding stats. I was well aware of the other rowing and granny exercises that were part of the chart, and White knows that, it said so on the very graph he used. But that’s a common trick, show your viewer the graphic in plain sight and hope they ignore the noise. White’s numbers were still wrong. But think about it, if White had accused me of ALTERING THE GRAPHIC AT FIRST, why didn’t he attempt to prove the altering he accused me of, instead of crunching the numbers differently?

Oh wait, he did prove one point: that a circle became on oval because I had to make it smaller to fit the entire page with the other graphics. None of his followers blinked an eye at this. The evidence that I altered the graph (remember, he said compressed at first on Twitter) was that the circles were different sizes? Are you kidding me? How does anyone take this guy seriously?

And yes, White was right that the Gran Fonda was cumulative, BUT NOT FOR THAT DAY and he knew exactly what I was talking about. Although the stats were cumulative, I was referring to requirements for a one day event, and included those stats for the week. White even admitted that I was right about the weekly and monthly stats, but he attempted to confuse his readers about the total. I even had bikers messaging me telling me it was weird and that I was right.

But considering that one of White’s tools in his polemics trick bag is to insult people over the grammar or spelling (I don’t use spell checker on EVERY document I post, or 140 character Tweets), if he can dish out petty insults about silly stuff, then why can’t I! The bike issue was not that big of a deal to me. For goodness sake he posts the stuff every day and brags about it. He even spent about 5 minutes ranting about it in the middle of insulting me.

No Accomplishments 45:25

Well there’s a catch 22. If I defend myself from the accusation that I haven’t accomplished anything, then I’ll be accused of bragging about my accomplishments. Apparently, White sees treasures stored on earth as proof of accomplishment. So guess what, White can have that one, because I’d rather be last on earth for Christ than first in my own cause to be seen of men. I spend my days witnessing to people in nursing homes, and passing out tracts throughout Illinois.

This shows that White values earthly success over spiritual rewards. And if that’s the standard of Godliness, that I haven’t written as many books, or engaged in debates, then guilty as charged. I’ll stack the souls I’ve led to Christ against White’s debates, and let God determine who was more “successful”.

I Saved Lives Through Bike Riding

White claims that several people said he saved their lives by inspiring them to work out. This is an emotional argument against what the Bible says about bodily exercise profiting little. Note that I NEVER said that exercise is bad. I work out several times a week, but no more than an hour. Why? Because it’s all that is needed to stay healthy enough to be effective for God, and that is precisely what Paul was talking about in Timothy. James White like every other important verse in the Bible, he just cuts 1 Tim 4:8 right out of the Bible.

James White’s actually setting a BAD example that could RUIN others’ health. I’m not going to take up this response to show the bad effects of lactic acid build up, creatine and glutamine depletion, muscle, joint and lung damage that can occur by over doing what White does. You don’t burn thousands of calories like that without knowing how to manage your diet and supplements (and frankly, White doesn’t look like someone who’s burning up as many calories as he says he is, unless he is a very reckless eater: maybe he can do another show about THAT).

SNUGGLING UP TO “POLEMICIST”

This was an obvious snub at JD Hall of Pulpit and Pen. Now what White didn’t tell his viewers (which I only later found out myself) was that this information came from Tom Buck. The accusation is that JD Hall and I were conspiring together (how about q-ing that conspiracy music White references a few minutes prior!) to “take down” other people. JD Hall and I have never talked, and I have sent him probably a few messages from Twitter about links to SBC issues. JD Hall and I are as different as night and day on a lot of issues, but I agree with his position on the Southern Baptist Convention. Because I have retweeted some of Hall’s articles on gay affirming, abortion isn’t murder defending SBCers that Hall has exposed, I’m now “yoking” with “a certain polemicist”.

However, all that White accused me of came from a second hand source that provided no proof. When I asked Tom Buck to show proof on Twitter, he simply said “God knows and you know”. That’s the age-old “you know what you did” tactic when you know you can’t prove what you said. Yet White ran with it anyway.

I AM DOING THIS BECAUSE MY TWITTER WAS SUSPENDED” 51:-00

Now White followers,  THINK THIS THROUGH FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE. If White is accusing me of having his Twitter account suspended BECAUSE of his tweet threatening to expose me, THEN HIS PROGRAM COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BASED ON THE TWITTER SUSPENSION OVER SOMETHING HE’D ALREADY THREATENED TO DO ANYWAY!!!! Do you folks get that? White had already posted that he was going to do a live show attacking me on March 8, which he posted on March 6. But at 51:00, he says that the REASON he is doing the show is because I got his Twitter account suspended, which didn’t happen until March 9, his threats were March 6.

Unbelievable how none of his followers caught that.

VILE THINGS ON HIS TWITTER FEED

If White has us blocked, then what “vile things” on my Twitter feed is he referring to? Screenshot? Proof? Reference? Example? Link? Nothing. He and his followers accused me with absolutely nothing to show for it.

The only thing that White has ever specifically mentioned as being “vile” is our posting of what his own sister, Patty Bonds, accused him of, which was that he was aggressive and threatening to her when she exposed their father for molesting her. Below is the screenshot we took of her comments on her blog, Abbas Little Girl, before she locked it after James White basically accused her of making the story up as part of a Catholic conspiracy against him. In other words, because she’s now a Catholic, she deserved to be raped. (And yes, this is a very personal issue with me).

pattybonds

White can not argue that a person deserves to get raped because it’s part of his theology (God ordains rape of children):

White threatens his own sister over exposing a pedophile and WE are the “vile” ones?

GEORGE B WINER ISSUE

This is the real issue. White uses every opportunity he can to vilify King James Only advocates by making us look like extremists. By the time you get to the real story, he has you hating me so much you believe anything he says when he gets to his contention.

whiterobertsonblunder

White NEVER ANSWERED THE ANACHRONISM. He simply backed up, and said in a very general way, “well back 3 pages, it’s talking about Titus 2:13 [I know] and anyone who reads this knows what it’s talking about”. Hello? Anybody home? That’s not an answer. The problem is White has misquoted Robertson and laid the blame for the King James translators on their mistranslating Titus 2:13 (and other places where the GSR rule “applies”. It’s actually used quite randomly, and there’s places where modern versions don’t apply it consistently themselves, but White ignorantly uses the GSR to claim that the KJV undermines the deity of Christ, when it’s clearly the other way around and he knows it. If you believe White’s tripe about the GSR, then God allowed the church to misrepresent the deity of Christ in Titus 2:13 for 1800 years). White knows he goofed. White even defended his comment within the comment itself by claiming that “scholars did not want to fly in HIS FACE”. Again, how could the King James translators, and even up the the 1769 Blayney edition of the 1611 AV (which is the standard now), flown in the face of a man who wasn’t even born until 1789?? WHITE NEVER ANSWERED THIS but did his typical politician song and dance. White knows full well that the last edition of the KJV, and the very edition he attacks most is the 1769 Blayney edition, so he couldn’t have been referring to any AV scholars after 1769. Yet his implication is that all scholars from 1611-1769 were afraid to fly in the face of a man that wasn’t even born yet. Instead of admitting his research was sloppy, or he simply made a mistake, he dodged it. However, this is the same criteria of which he attacked Gail Riplinger on. If her mistakes make her unreliable, then so should White’s.

 

Part 2 Later This Week

 

By the way, the day before White’s show, we posted exactly what he was going to say before he said it. He didn’t disappoint!

James A. ThM

One of the most disturbing trends behind the defense of modern “Bible” versions by “scholars” and “apologists” like James White, Daniel Wallace, Bruce Metzger, Norman Geisler, and their ilk is the deliberate omissions in their writings of the rationalists and occultists that laid the foundations for destructive textual criticism. The sycophants of James White often embrace his gibberish about Bible versions without ever bothering to study both sides of the issue, and White uses such vitriolic ad hominem attacks against King James Only Bible believers that he leaves his followers in the dark about the truth behind his influences.

Paul advised Timothy of the importance of knowing who is behind the teachings you embrace: “But continue thou in the things which thou has learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them” (2 Timothy 3:14). Any honest person should be horrified about the men who James White and his ilk endorse to support their attacks on the King James Bible and defense of their Roman Catholic texts.*

Here we will list** just a few of those heretics that James White wants you to trust when he excuses the fact that he can’t point you to a single book on earth or heaven that he can actually say IS the Bible, all the while claiming that he believes in something he calls “THE” Bible-he just can’t tell YOU where you can get your own copy.

Johann Jacob Griesbach (1745-1812)

Griesbach was influenced by a German Rationalist named Johann Semler. Semler did not believe that the entire canon of the Bible was inspired. He promoted the “accommodation theory” that holds one can give a person limited information about the truth because they presently lack the capacity to understand it. Semler taught that the New Testament writers’ miracles were fictitious and only written to appease certain needs of the followers of the apostles. He rejected the inspiration of Revelation calling it “the production of an extravagant dreamer”.

Bruce Metzger claimed that Westcott & Hort never collated any manuscripts, but simply “refined the critical methodology developed by Griesbach, Lachmann, and others, and applied it rigorously” (Metzger, Text of the New Testament, p. 129).

George Vance Smith (1816-1902), Westcott & Hort Revision Committee

Smith was a Unitarian that denied the deity of Christ and the blood atonement, the personality of the Holy Spirit, and the doctrine of the Trinity altogether. Smith did not believe in the inspiration of Scripture. Thousands of clergy protested Smith’s appointment to the revision committee of Westcott and Hort who threatened to quit if Smith was not allowed to remain on the committee.

Ezra Abbot (1819-1884)

Abbot was behind the American Standard Version (ASV) of 1901. He claimed that Christ should not be worshiped. He wrote in a footnote in John 9:3 of the 1901 ASV that Christ was a created being, and made a distinction between Christ (created) and God (Creator).

Eberhard Nestle (1851-1913)

Nestle, of the popular Nestle-Aland Greek New Testament (nearly 30 different editions now), rejected the infallibility of the Bible, and believed it was no more than a normal piece of literature. He claimed that authors of the New Testament never expected their writings to be read by others let alone be taken as the authoritative word of God.

United Bible Society (UBS) Greek New Testament

The UBS, which is highly recommended by James White (along with NA 28, and Westcott & Hort’s critical Greek apparatus), is partnered with the Pontifical Biblical Institute of Rome. One of its leading editors added in 1967 (1967-2002) was a Jesuit priest, Carlo M. Martini. Martini believed in evolution, that the Bible was ordinary literature and embraced numerous New Age philosophies.

The UBS 5 was recently endorsed by Pope Francis. Imagine that! James White and Pope Francis both endorse the 5th edition of the UBS Greek New Testament.

Kurt and Barbara Aland

Partner with Eberhard Nestle (above), he and his wife are also contributors the UBS. Aland does not believe in verbal inspiration of the Bible, and that the Old Testament and the gospels are full of myths that were not inspired by God but merely a naturalistic process. Kurt Aland does not believe that the canon of Scripture is complete or settled.

Bruce Metzger (1914-2007)

Plagiarist Bruce Metzger also denies the infallibility of the Bible. In his notes on the Reader’s Digest Condensed Bible, he rejected the authorship, dates, and supernatural inspiration of books written by Moses, Daniel, Paul, James and Peter. In the 1962 New Oxford Annotated Bible RSV, Metzger opined that the Old Testament is “a matrix of myth, legend and history”. He rejected the flood of Genesis, and said that Isaiah was written by two other authors, and the story of Jonah was a fairytale.

Westcott & Hort

Westcott & Hort led the committee that created a never-before-seen Greek New Testament. They used as their exemplar, the Codex Vaticanus, an abandoned and dusty ms from the shelf of a Vatican library in 1475, “rediscoverd” in the late 1800s (ironically, shortly after the “discovery” of the Codex Sinaiticus), and the Codex Sinaiticus, a forged document by a Greek paleographer named Constantine Simonides in 1840, stolen from the trash room of a Catholic/Muslim*** monastery in Egypt (St. Catherine’s) by Constantine Tischendorf who was wined and dined by Rome for his endeavors. Both are missing entire books of the Bible and have been deliberate altered in thousands of places. Neither of them believed in the infallibility of the Bible.

They belonged to several occult societies and socialist groups, and had an affinity for the Mary of the Catholic. Arthur Westcott writes that upon the finding of a pieta (Roman Catholic statute of Mary holding the dead body of Christ), that BF Westcott stated, “Had I been there alone I could have knelt for hours”. Life and Letters of Brooke Foss Westcott, Vol I, p 81 (1903).

Although much has been written about these men, their greatest influence on the revision committee was the Genealogical Method and Lucian Recension. (For a thorough take down of these two methods, see Wilbur Pickering’s Identity of the New Testament, II, chapter 3) There is no historical evidence to support either one, and Westcott & Hort themselves never applied the genealogical method to their own New Testament. It was only used to attack the Greek Textus Receptus. Not even modern scholars use the method, and yet it, as well as the ghost theory of the Lucian Recension are touted as justifications for the hatchet job that Westcott & Hort presented in 1881 as the “best and oldest” manuscripts.
If taking James White and his ilk seriously, we are to believe that the transmission of the Textus Receptus which was maintained by faithful, persecuted Christians since the inception of the church, was full of errors, mistakes, and deliberate alterations (like those in the Lucian recension which James White rejected my challenge to debate proof for), and was preserved by God through Christ denying heretics who didn’t believe the Bible was infallible or inspired, and who persecuted those who did. We are also led to believe that the church was kept in the dark until 1881 when Tischendorf “discovered” the “oldest” and “best” manuscripts.

KJVO critics often ask the dumbest question ever: “where was the Bible before 1611?”, which we have answered ad nauseum, and it wasn’t sitting on a shelf in a Vatican library collecting dust. But modern version onlyists never answer that same question: where was the Bible before 1881? Did God sandbag the church by hiding the best and oldest manuscripts from the entire church for 1800 years only to cause them to be found by heretics and rationalists on a dusty shelf and a library shared with Muslims in Egypt?

Those of you defending James White who believe his absurd rhetoric about King James Only”ism” need a serious reality check.

________________________________________________

*James White will often punt to his “debates” with Roman Catholics as proof that he does not support the Catholic church, but he never calls them to leave the Roman Catholic Church, he never refers to it as a cult (which it is)-of course while referring to King James Only advocates as cultists (many of whom are Calvinists like James White)- he has defended Pope Francis’ statement that Jesus death on the cross was a failure, and he is a staunch advocate for the two Roman Catholic manuscripts that underlie all of the modern Bible versions. James White is also an amillennialist which is the same eschatological heresy taught by the Catholic church. White ignores prophecy debates even though he claims to be an “apologist”. Any apologist who neglects the defense of over half of the Bible is no real apologist (Acts 20:27).

The subtlety of the devil and of the Jesuits is permitting just enough truth to appear orthodox, but leaving out enough that a person is never actually called to repentance and belief of the truth. Catholics frankly don’t care that White “debates” them, so long as White never encourages and of them to LEAVE even though he claims to believe in repentance. And as long as he endorses their Bibles, no honest critic of Catholicism could ever take him seriously that they have a common theological enemy.

** The outline follows chapter 2 of David Cloud’s exhaustive and excellent expose of this subject in For the Love of the Bible. WayofLife.Org

*** It is well known that St. Catherine’s was a Catholic monastery. What modern versionists do NOT tell you is that it was also shared with Egyptian Muslims who had numerous Islamic relics and writings stored there. This probably explains the reason why a 12th Islamic prophecy is scrawled in Arabic on the footnote of Revelation 7-8 on the Codex Sinaiticus. How 12th century Islamic prophecies using 18th Century Arabic writing style ended up on a supposed 4th century ms is an anomaly that James White has continually dodged, telling his followers that I and Dr. James Ach are “the biggest trolls on the internet”, and “beneath contempt

 

James A, Th.M

It must be nice to be an apologist that gets to write your own rules as to how Christians should conduct themselves amongst each other, and arbitrarily follow those standards yourself. That is James White. I’ll go into a little bit of detail later on because I want to include detailed links, but needed to respond to a Facebook post White posted where he referenced JD Hall and myself*

The melee started with Jordon Cooper’s wife and several of White’s followers complaining that JD didn’t properly cite the author of an article written by someone else, although anyone exercising even a mild modicum of diligence can see the author cited at the bottom of the article, which is how Hall stamps even his own articles.  Hall recently noted that Karen Swallow Prior’s  article claiming abortion wasn’t murder-then it was-then it wasn’t-then it was (after 2 or 3 edits) that KSP, being a communications expert, shouldn’t need to constantly revise her published articles to clarify her nuances. It is obvious that those trolling Hall over this signature issue are attempting to use Hall’s logic against KSP (a grammarian needing to edit her article) against him for exercising poor grammar. Hall’s critics were playing a game by attempting to compare content to form, Hall complained about KSP’s content (whether it’s unchristlike to call abortion murder), and her defenders complained about his format (who signed the dotted line on the article). I know right! Silly. Childish. Petty.

Cooper’s wife chimed in, and Hall mentioned that she was “loud”. James White got tagged in the conversation and accused Hall of “going after someone’s wife” (ignoring the fact this wasn’t her first attack on Hall, and that she commented about him first). In response to White, I posted a Youtube video where James White and his sidekick, Dick Pierce, were making fun of Mormon and Russian women (which he conveniently left out), so White hardly had grounds for falsely accusing someone of “going after someone’s wife”.

Short story done, now to White’s ridiculous and childish Facebook post.

So a bit later I am informed that a certain well known theonomist in a certain well known Reformed area of Facebook responded to my tweet by posting a wild-eyed Muslim’s video about my comments about…Brigham Young’s wives. Now, if that isn’t nutty enough, a while later I am informed that the King of All Internet Trolls, a KJVO of the looniest order, likewise tweeted the same Muslim’s video (and come to think of it, I have never seen the theonomist and the KJVO troll in the same room at the same time!). You just can’t make this stuff up, can you?

First of all, I am not James Ach (there are 2 James A’s on here, I am a graduate of PMI Ministries, Ivy Tech, Blackstone School of Law, and Grace College and currently working on a PhD through PMI).* Nevertheless, I am sick to death of White marginalizing people like this when he preaches to everyone else not to do it. He has chastised all Christians about treating Muslims with respect and not marginalizing all Muslims, and yet he constantly insults those on this website every chance he gets, and anyone who disagrees with him (about anything from Bible versions, to rowing~seriously). White can attack anyone he wants to and it’s apologetics. But you challenge him and it’s “trolling”. White accuses Leighton Flowers of http://www.Soteriology101.com of chasing him to debate Calvinism as a trolling attempt to get notoriety, but when White did the same thing to William Lane Craig and Norman Geisler (and I have over 30 screenshots to prove it) it’s “ministry”.

Second, White did not simply attack Mormon women. He attacked Russian women in general as well with Dick Pierce saying that “Russian women look like Russian men” (35 second mark). However, notice how White shifts the focus with a genetic fallacy (dismissing content solely because of its source regardless of whether it’s true). So I’m KJVO and “nutty” (whatever that means). What does that have to do with White’s own comments posted on Youtube? Nothing. It’s typical White-style marginalization (Funny my last article showing where White is wrong about Islam I stated that White would pull the KJVO card if he read it, so no surprise he did it here.)

Third, I am not a theonomist. Considering that most theonomists are Calvinists (and I don’t know a single one that isn’t- and White, being an amillennialist, isn’t much different) and White knows we are opposed to Calvinism, White’s hints that I am this theonomist is pretty comical (and I’m not even sure White knows what theonomy is). However, so far nobody has been able to find any Facebook post by this “theonomist” that was posted before my post on Twitter. Yet White is giving the impression that the theonomist and I are the same person. Conspiracy theory much, Mr. White? White is also equating when he found out about the posts with the timing they were actually posted, so he doesn’t have enough sense to know that just because he heard about my post later, that my post on Twitter could have been posted first before the “theonomist” posted it on Facebook. And White calls me nutty!

Now, I should point out that, of course, pointing out the objective fact that polygamy in Utah was a real mess, and, that Brigham Young married a number of very homely women, has nothing whatsoever to do with the modern situation. In case no one noticed, Brigham Young, and all of Brigham Young’s wives, are deceased. Dead. Long gone.

Now if he would only use that standard for those who criticize John Calvin’s treatment of Servetus (and the 47 other people Calvin had killed). If it’s OK to talk about people who are dead and gone, then White shouldn’t have any more issues when others criticize his dead heroes. Nevertheless, as was already noted, it wasn’t just the Mormon women being referred to, it was also Russian women in general, and I never heard where White was referring to any “dead and gone” Russian women.

It doesn’t matter if they were dead, he was referring to their appearances as women, not merely Mormon women. It was a degrading and insulting comment about women, period. White repeatedly tells others that it’s wrong to insult Mohammad, but why not? He’s dead and gone! According to White’s brilliant logic, it should be “game on”, right?

So the theonomist either proved himself really bad at that logic thing, or, more likely, was just goofing around, and proved himself bad at the humor thing. It had never even crossed my mind to wonder if the Lutheran fellow was married

So it never crossed White’s mind whether this Lutheran fellow was married, and yet White stated emphatically that Hall went after his WIFE. Who’s the one with a logic problem again?

White closes with this genius excuse,

If there are no homely women, there are no beautiful women, either. Just that simple. And now for the documentation:

So I guess someone has to be ugly, right! Without ugly women, there’d be no beautiful women. Apparently, God elected some women to be ugly so there’d be an elect class of beautiful women, heh! That’s one of the worst contrasting either/or fallacies I’ve ever read. In fact, White even posted pictures of his contentions to double down on his comments from the Youtube video.

The bottom line is that while White preaches that “inconsistency is the sign of a failed argument”, he demonstrates over and over (and over, and over, and over, and over) that he’s perfectly OK with being consistently inconsistent. White lashes out the most at those who consistently call him out on it.**

If you’re going to be a jerk, then at least be a consistent one, and stop telling others not to do what you do so freely on a daily basis.

 


*Regardless of the issues I have with Dr James Ach, White doesn’t hold a candle to that man’s knowledge of manuscript issues, Hebrew and Greek languages (even correcting White once on a mistranslated Hebraism), and in fact, posed questions to White about Codex Sinaiticus that White to this day has never answered, nor has White ever responded to the anachronisms that Ach pointed out in his KJVO Controversy book. So White has a vested interest in preventing people from reading anything written by Ach or any of the rest of us because Ach repeatedly put him in his place on both the KJVO issues and Calvinism.

**Of course, JD Hall and I don’t agree theologically anymore than James White and Michael Brown do. But it’s OK for White to have agreement with Brown on social and/or political issues, but wrong for me to agree with JD Hall on social issues in the SBC where you would expect White to have more discernment against their support of feminism, Catholicism, animal rights activism; where Hall has nailed it, and White has coddled Hall’s antagonists, and for the most part remained silent since his initial post about Karen Swallow Prior (which to White’s credit, was brilliant). Once he realized that he had a large amount of followers (like Tom Buck and Frank Turk) that also like KSP and refuse to call her to repentance, White threw Hall under the bus.
