"S P I R I T U A L   D E C E P T I O N   I N   T H E   H I G H E S T"

We have studied the work of Westcott and Hort. It's time to look at these men, personally.

Quotes from the two men that wrote the corrupted Westcott & Hort Greek text from which all modern Bible versions were written.

H O R T

"Hort did not believe in the authority of the Bible. While mocking an Evangelical, Hort is quoted as saying: "[There are] SERIOUS differences between us on the subject of authority, and ESPECIALLY on the AUTHORITY of the bible" [S3P627-8]."

"Hort did not believe in Eden. His quote follows: "I am inclined to think NO SUCH STATE as 'Eden' ... EVER EXISTED ..." [S2P280]."

W E S T C O T T

"Westcott did not believe the first 3 chapters of Genesis. He said: "NO ONE now, I suppose, holds that the first three chapters of Genesis ... give a LITERAL history ..." [S2P280]."

"Westcott did not believe in Jesus' miracles; of them, he said: "I never read an account of a miracle, but I seem instinctively to feel its IMPROBABILITY ..." [S1P132]."

"Westcott was NOT concerned about Hell. Westcott said Hell is: "not the place of punishment of the guilty" [S3P296]."

"As a Cambridge undergraduate, Westcott organized a club and chose for its name 'Hermes'. The designation is derived from 'the god of magic ... and occult wisdom, the conductor of Souls to Hades, ... Lord of Death ... cunning and trickery". [S3P400]."

NEW  .......Defending The King James Bible

The words "groves" and "grove" are found in 41 verses in the King James Bible describing the trees that pagans used to worship their deities.

These words are not found in the same 41 verses in modern Bible versions, NIV, NKJV, NASB, and essentially all modern Bibles.

Al Maxey's web site says the King James Bible "blundered" when it used the word "groves"

Let's see if Al Maxey's web site is right.

"S P I R I T U A L   D E C E P T I O N   I N   T H E   H I G H E S T"

In the last chapter, we learned 'Codex Vaticanus' and 'Codex Sinaiticus' are two manuscripts from the corrupted minority of Greek texts.

'Vaticanus' was found in the Vatican library. 'Sinaiticus' was found in a Mt. Sinai trash can.

We also know these 2 manuscripts form the basis for the Westcott and Hort Greek text. And, the corrupt Westcott and Hort Greek text forms the basis for 'modern' versions of the Bible.

In this chapter Westcott and Hort use the Vaticanus and Sinaiticus manuscripts to make their 'own' Greek text. This they submit to a Bible translation committee. The result will be the "English Revised Version of 1881". Later on, other 'modern versions' will follow the W&H text.

We pick up the history of the Bible, in England, in 1870.

What Does God Think About Christmas Trees?


NEW  ....... Book By Wayne Coats

Lynn Anderson wrote the book on changing the Church of Christ.
.....Wayne Coats wrote the review.

Read the review and forget about the book!

"Our brother Lynn has actually "cooked up" a strategy of change which is to "weave." That weaving means to, "Alternate between safety and disequilibrium." It means when your church is, "approaching the limits of tolerance back off." "Talk about familiar and safe things for a while." ?Weave out and in?weave out? weave back in? weave out again? weave back? Weave. Two steps froward and one step back.? Such insane ideas have no place among decent people. How any man who claims to be a gospel preacher could print such sick ideas is beyond me. And to think that brother Anderson wrote on pages 230-234 about honesty, strength and integrity. Good Lord please help."

Of those 110 versions only the King James Version (Authorized) is translated from the Received Text (Textus Receptus). All the others, even though no two of them agree with each other, were translated from another source. That other source is the Misters Westcott and Hort Text" [S14P3-4].

Subject:   .....A Special Report - The Hegelian Dialectic at Madison
New This Week
At ConcernedMembers.com

NEW  ...........Below, Paul's Proctor's Latest Article On The Hegelian Dialectic


The Hegelian Dialectic Turned Loose At Madison

It can go by any number of names. "Hegelian Dialectic", "Consensus Process", "Diaprax", or even the "Delphi Technique. They are all derived from the "Hegelian Dialectic".

"Rand Corporation developed the ?Delphi Technique? in the early ?60s for the purpose of maneuvering segments of the public into accepting pre-determined government policies. Based in the Hegelian Principle 1. In the ?70s & ?80s, it was used to convince land owners of the merits of accepting general land use planning maps. (Ithaca). ."

"The goal of the Delphi technique is to lead a targeted group of people to a pre-determined outcome, while giving the illusion of taking public input under the pretext of being accountable to the public." (Becraft)

"For the Delphi to work, it is critical that the targeted group be kept away from knowledgeable people who could lead them away from the Delphier's predetermined outcome."

Do you remember when the one of the Elders at Madison brought in a team of people from Pepperdine University to meet with the Elders.

This was a Hegelian Dialectic technique!

They divided the Elders up into small groups. Each of these groups had a professional "facilitator" to lead the group to a predetermined outcome. The Elders could not talk to others outside the group. They had to agree to keep what they were discussing secret.

Do you remember when this same facilitator team sent home with the members a survey? They then requested that the members meet in a number of small groups to discuss the problems at Madison.

This was the Hegelian Dialectic at work. And even more insulting, probably paid for with Church funds?

A technique developed by a German athiest in the late 19th century. It's now being used by Churches, corporations, schools, and governments to take you where you don't want to go, and to weave paganism, occultism, and homosexuality into all aspects of our society.

Even the children are being indoctrinated at the Church camp with seamingly harmeless bonding games.

Who brought this Unholy practice to Madison? Who turned this loose on their own unsuspecting members? Is this person still an Elder at Madison?

The people that purpetrate these practices have no excuse to deceive, and work in the cloak of secrecy against their own members even as governemnts by the people and for the people have no right to trick the people.

Just think. Anyone that would bring this practice into a Church, would have no problem using it in a government.

Your only protection is knowledge.

In the last chapter we learned that:

"... The KJV reverberates with ETERNAL FAMILIARITY ... Priests, atheists, skeptics, devotees, agnostics, and evangelists, are generally agreed that the Authorized version of the English Bible is the BEST EXAMPLE OF ENGLISH LITERATURE that the world HAS EVER SEEN ... Ivy league scholars have selected the King James Bible as ONE OF THE FINEST SAMPLES OF WRITING STYLES IN EXISTENCE ... The KJV ... has proven itself for almost 400 years, it is the MOST BEAUTIFUL, it BEARS THE MOST FRUIT, it produces SPIRITUAL REVIVAL, it is the EASIEST TO MEMORIZE ... the version of 1611 ... is probably the BEST version EVER MADE ... etc. etc. etc.

Their training would require fourteen years of testing and trials designed to leave them with no will at all. They were to learn to be obedient. Loyola taught that their only desire was to serve the Pope" [S1P88].

In chapter 7 of his book: "An Understandable History Of The Bible", Reverend Gipp gives us some insight into the Roman Catholic 'Church'. He first begins with a contrast:

"It is necessary to salvation that every man should submit to the Pope." (Boniface VIII Unum Sanctum, 1303.) [S1P80].

"FOR BY GRACE ARE YE SAVED THROUGH FAITH; AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD: NOT OF WORKS LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST." (Ephesians 2:8-9) [S1P80].

As Reverend Gipp says: "Here lie two totally contradictory statements. They cannot both be correct. The one which you believe will depend on the authority you accept" [S1P80].

"Once the "ice cream" store is opened, it's just a matter of time before one flavor is not enough. Churches bringing in "Praise Teams" should be aware that the next move is a gradual shift toward full musical instrumentation. The Elders uniformly cover their words by saying, "our intent is not to have instruments".

Then, eventially they determine, as in this Farmers Branch document, that instruments are Ok."

"Oh, Be Careful Little Ears" by Kimberly Smith (WinePress Publishing)

The subtitle is "Contemporary Christian Music...Is THAT in the Bible?" Kimberly Smith, a church organist and classically trained pianist, can be likened to a modern-day Dr. Van Helsing in pursuit of the fiendish "undead." Armed with the Word of God, she triumphantly impales "Christian" rock music, the most carnal and prevalent style of contemporary Christian music (CCM) today.

"Let Those Who Have Ears to Hear" by Kimberly Smith (WinePress Publishing)

The subtitle is "If They Took Away the Music...Would You STILL Follow Jesus?"
In this sequel to "Oh, Be Careful Little Ears," Smith further impales the heart of contemporary Christian music, then twists the stake. In a broader crusade against the worldly appeal of Christian rock and other "carnal" music, she makes this observation: Churches that embrace contemporary music are far more likely to develop casual attitudes about God and worship. Accordingly in such churches, a worship service is really no different from hanging out at the local mall, where slovenly dressed people can meet with friends to have some laughs and hear some tunes.

Throughout history the Roman Catholic Church has 'stonewalled' efforts to give God's Holy Word to the common person.

But a man named Tyndale would champion the cause of the common man.

At the 1999 annual meeting of The World Economic Forum, an international think-tank of political, business and academic leaders held in Davos, Switzerland, Dominic Peccoud, Advisor for Socio-Religious Affairs at the International Labour Office (ILO) in Geneva, speaking on the topic ?Religion as a Global Phenomenon for the New Millennium,? asserted, ?Fundamentalism is a worldwide threat.? The way it has to be countered, he maintained, is ?to change the view that salvation depends on playing by certain religious rules: everyone is saved.

Starting Chapter 11 of

"S P I R I T U A L    D E C E P T I O N    I N    T H E    H I G H E S T"

For almost 1,000 years ( 476 A.D. - 1453 A.D. ), the world went through a time of spiritual darkness.

Also, in the last chapter we learned that: "spiritual darkness and apostasy ... begin with false notions concerning faith" [S8P55] and "reformation and revival ... require the correction of these errors ..." [S8P55].

God moved in a mighty way and the 'Dark Ages' ended in 1453. Then, 1 year later in 1454, printing with movable type was invented.

Movable type printing, along with revival, spread God's Word quickly.

CHURCH MEMBERSHIP COVENANTS

"Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Community Church in Lake Forest, California recently came out with an article in the Baptist Press recommending pastors and congregations adopt church membership covenants as a way of compelling their flock to become more involved in and committed to the ministry of their church. Although, on the surface such covenants might seem practical, here?s what Jesus Christ had to say about making covenants with men."

In this chapter we will break from our historical study and look at the personal side of the struggle for God's Word. We will look at a group of people, within the 'true Church', called the Waldenses.

The Waldenses, of the Italian Church, are trying to pass on God's original Bible.

Their's is an interesting story. Let's review the role they played in history.

To attack God's true Word, Satan had to come up with a corruption.

Around the year 200 A.D. a man named Clement:

"... founded the 'Catechetical School' at Alexandria. He brought the wisdom of the world into the teachings of the Christian faith and began to collect a group of corrupt manuscripts" [S7P8]. "Clement expressly tells us that he would not hand down Christian teachings, pure and unmixed, but rather clothed with precepts of pagan philosophy" [S2P191].

For this report I will be use the term 'Traditional Majority Text' to describe the text which underlies the King James Bible.

"MANY PEOPLE ASSUME THAT MODERN VERSIONS ARE SIMPLY WORDING 'UPDATES' TO THE SAME HEBREW AND GREEK TEXTS (i.e. updates to the Massoretic Text and updates to the Textus Receptus). This is what I thought. To me, this was a logical assumption.

But, I found out there was a problem with my assumption; it was wrong!
