OUT FROM HER
A talk by the late Dr. Frank Logsdon reveals that the critical text that underlies almost all modern Bible versions is based on manuscripts that came out of the Roman Catholic institution. He notes that--1. Almost all modern Bible versions are based on two Greek manuscripts--
- the Codex Sinaiticus and
- the Codex Vaticanus.
2. The Codex Sinaiticus and the Codex Vaticanus were found in the bosom of the Roman Catholic institution.
- The Codex Sinaiticus was "found" at St. Catherine's Monastery at (what many people consider) Mount Sinai in 1844 and in 1859. (ref. http://www.1611kingjamesbible.com/codex_sinaiticus.html/)
- The Codex Vaticanus was "found" in 1481 in the Vatican library in Rome where it is currently held, and from whence it received its name (ref. http://www.1611kingjamesbible.com/codex_vaticanus.html/).
[Note: From what I've read, it appears that some may take exception to some of the points of Dr. Logsdon's talk; however, in this discussion, we are concerned with these two big facts--(1) Many modern Bibles are based on two Greek manuscripts; and, (2) These two Greek manuscripts were found in the bosom of the Roman Catholic institution.]
***** A LITTLE BACKGROUND ON THE SIGNIFICANCE OF "THE GREEK" *****
- The New Testament was written in Greek.
- The originals are all gone, no one has them. But there are over 5,300 extant (existing) Greek manuscripts of the New Testament available. About 95-97% of them agree together. They are called the Majority Text.
- The remaining 3-5% disagree with the majority of manuscripts.
- A man named Erasmus, a brilliant Dutch scholar and reformer in his own right, examined a collection of Majority Text Greek manuscripts. He compiled them into a Greek New Testament based on the readings that the true church has accepted throughout the centuries. His compilation came to be known as the Textus Receptus or the Received Text. The Authorized Version of 1611 is based on the Greek text found in the Textus Receptus.
- The new Bible versions are not based on Erasmus' Textus Receptus. They are based on the Greek New Testament compiled by a couple of heretic blasphemers named Westcott and Hort (see their words for yourself at his link. A look at their letters reveal their "leanings" toward Romanism. ). Westcott and Hort published their, "The New Testament in the Original Greek" in 1881.
***** WESTCOTT AND HORT'S GREEK TEXT RELIES HEAVILY ON THE CORRUPTED GREEK TEXTS FOUND IN THE BOSOM OF ROME *****
Westcott and Hort's Greek New Testament is the "source text" for many of today's modern Bible translations. According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_New_Testament_in_the_Original_Greek--The New Testament in the Original Greek is the name of a Greek language version of the New Testament published in 1881. It is also known as the Westcott and Hort text, after its editors Brooke Foss Westcott (1825-1901) and Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892). It is a critical text*....
Two manuscripts were FAVOURED by Westcott and Hort: VATICANUS AND SINAITICUS.*[our note: People who use the critical method blasphemously take it on themselves to "correct" the Bible to the get the "original" or "real" meaning or intent like in literary criticism when the stance is taken that the writer meant something more than what they expressly said.]
Let's take a look back to Deception 42 [emphases ours]--
Let's go back to a Roman Catholic Jesuit quote from Deception XXXV:"Then THE BIBLE, THAT SERPENT which with head erect and eyes flashing, threatens us [the Jesuits] with its venom while it trails along the ground, SHALL BE CHANGED into a rod AS SOON AS WE [the Jesuits] ARE ABLE TO SEIZE IT... for three centuries past THIS CRUEL ASP has left us no repose. YOU WELL KNOW WITH WHAT FOLDS IT ENTWINES US AND WITH WHAT FANGS IT GNAWS US." (The Jesuits in History, Hector Macpherson, Ozark Book Publishers, 1997, Appendix 1). [emphases ours]
Now, a quote from Fenton Hort, one of the two infidels that compiled the Greek New Testament that the modern "Bible" versions are based on. The new Bible versions are based on a few Johnny-come-lately minority texts which are touted as being older (some doubt the veracity of this). Look at Hort's words about the Textus Receptus--1851 Dec. 29,30th - Hort: "I had no idea till the last few weeks of the importance of texts, having read so little Greek Testament, and dragged on with the VILLAINOUS TEXTUS RECEPTUS. Think of that VILE TEXTUS RECEPTUS leaning entirely on late MSS.; it is a blessing there are such early ones" (Life, Vol.I, p.211). [emphases ours]
Why would any normal translator have such rabid feelings against the Textus Receptus? These infidels, Wescott and Hort, were supposedly Protestant churchmen...but did they have anything to say that might make us believe that they were otherwise? In their extant letters and writings we get a glimpse as to who these blaspheming, scorning, mocking, infidels were--Oct. 17, 1865 - Hort: "I have been persuaded for many years that 'MARY'-WORSHIP AND 'JESUS'-WORSHIP HAVE VERY MUCH IN COMMON IN THEIR CAUSES AND THEIR RESULTS." (Life, Vol.II, p.50).
Jan., 2nd Sunday after Epiphany, 1847 - Westcott: "After leaving the monastery we shaped our course to a little oratory...It is very small, with one kneeling-place; and behind a screen was a 'Pieta' the size of life (i.e. a Virgin and dead Christ)...I COULD NOT HELP THINKING ON THE GRANDEUR OF THE ROMISH CHURCH, ON HER ZEAL EVEN IN ERROR, ON HER EARNESTNESS AND SELF-DEVOTION, WHICH WE MIGHT, with nobler views and a purer end, STRIVE TO IMITATE. Had I been alone I COULD HAVE KNELT THERE FOR HOURS." (Life, Vol.I, p.81). [emphases ours]
When was the Congress of Vienna? 1815. When was Codex Sinaiticus found? 1844 and 1859. When was the Westcott and Hort "New Testament in the Original Greek" published? 1881. When did the Revised Standard Version come out? 1881 (New Testament) - 1885 (Old Testament) How about the American Standard Version? 1901. These things were happening at warp speed.
***** I USED TO WONDER *****
I used to wonder why so many errors and cults rose up and made it into lasting prominence in the 1800s...
- Karl Marx and Communism,
- Darwinian evolution and the feeding frenzy it spawned--Hebert Spencer and sociology, John Dewey and progressive education, Thomas Huxley (aka Darwin's bulldog) who propagated evolution and spawned notable sons to include Aldous Huxley (author of Brave New World).
- Booker T. Washington, in one of his books (I think it was "My Larger Education"), told about how the black masons of his time did not readily receive non-masons--note that Mr. Washington had been a slave--how did black masonic movements arise so quickly corralling black men and making them men of influence in the black community? Who started and funded black masonic organizations? Who defined them and set the agendas for what the would do and believe? [note: the movement has continued to the current day. One of the strangest things I've ever read was a short email forwarded to me written from one mason to another about "the lodge" but I do not remember the details, only that it was that quick way of darkness, of the serpent, where few couched words quickly arrive at great evil.] How did they rise up so fast after slavery?
...Masons...The following quotes are taken from a powerpoint presentation entitled, "The Society of Jesus -- The Company of Jesus Con Con 2008" --"Hold Freemasonry up to the light and you cannot help but see the black papacy's watermark. Isn't it reasonable, given the circumstances, that the 'G' in the center of the familiar Masonic emblem represents the initial of 'Gesu,' the residence of the black popes at the Jesuits' world headquarters at Number 5, Borgo Sancto Spiritu in Rome? Freemasons wouldn't suspect this, nor would Jesuits." Rulers of Evil: Useful Knowledge About Governing Bodies, F. Tupper Saussy, (New York: Harper Collins Publishers, 2001) p. 120.
". . . if you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top, head Mason of the World, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus are one and the same person!" The Life of Horace Greeley, James Parton, (New York: Mason Brothers, 1855) p. 68.
"The truth is, the Jesuits of Rome have perfected Freemasonry to be their most magnificent and effective tool, accomplishing their purposes among Protestants, yet remaining completely hidden and unknown." The Grand Design Exposed, John Daniel, (Middleton, Ohio: CHJ Publishing, 1999) p. 302.
There have been agitations from within the bowels this nation. Look at the labour unions. A search on "labor unions and Roman Catholic church" will reveal a relationship of which one Catholic source said it was proud. If you look up Labor Day (like we did in order to understand where the holiday came from) you may not get a straight answer as to where it came from--not even online from the Department of Labor--but an older encyclopedia may yield an answer closer to the truth. The Encyclopedia Americana (1971) entry for Labor Day includes the following--..The celebration of this day was inaugurated by the Knights of Labor (q.v.) who held a parade in New York City in 1882, in 1883, and in 1884. In the last year a resolution by one of the knights, George R. Lloyd, was passed, recommending that parades be held on Labor Day. According to an article published by the United States Department of labor (Bulletin No. 29, July 1900), Oregon was the first state to legislate for general observance of Labor Day as a legal holiday. This law, enacted Feb. 21, 1887, specified the first Saturday in June as Labor Day; but in 1893 the day of observance was changed to the first Monday in September. In March, April, and May of 1887, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts passed similar legislation, all setting the first Monday of September as the holiday, and in 1894 Congress declared it to be a national holiday.
In Europe the celebration of Labor Day on May Day (May 1) was begun in the 1890s and has persisted to the present time. The holiday is also celebrated on this date and with great gusto in the Soviet Union and other Communist-ruled countries. [emphases ours]
How did Labor Day get enacted in all of these places? From what little I know, the labor unions have a history of agitation (not just in America) and today wield considerable political influence. Within the past year, I read the cover of a Whistleblower magazine. It said, "Obama's Army -- How America's largest labor unions serve as ground troops for the radical left." As with most things, I did not read the entire article (I may have read a line or a paragraph but I do not remember), the title said it all. Like most people, I previously believed labor unions to be organizations formed to ensure that working people were not mistreated, but over the past few years a different picture has emerged...
- Agitations, movements quickly beginning and spreading...
- In the 1800s, cults rose up like the Russellism (today Russellites are call themselves, "Jehovah's Witnesses")--founder Charles Taze Russell; Seventh Day Adventism--founder Ellen White; the Campbellites (Church of Christ)--founder Alexander Campbell; Mormonism--founder Joseph Smith, Christian Science--founder Mary Baker Eddy, etc. As I recall, I used to think of it like Legion being let loose...These and other errors came on the scene and gained strength and power, and lasted even unto the current day.
- Continuing on, psychology would soon come raging on the scene to eradicate the concept of right and wrong and to perform experiments in order to guide the future of the "human race" with its tricks and deceits in order to control people's minds.
- School became compulsory,
- Dress hems got shorter, hair got chopped off, "morals" went out the window and the "roaring twenties" took flight and women started rising up,
- World Wars broke out causing some women to go to work--afterwards many decided that they wanted to continue working--they left their homes, their husbands, and their children whom they had placed in the hands of the State.
- The movies and television kicked in, rock and roll brought its corrupting influence, Billy Graham rose up to "stardom" and at some point his "ministry" even started making movies--disturbing ones--I saw many of them at a certain period of my Christian walk (all long-discarded). The visible church continued its ride on the "let's have a good time" bandwagon. It had its "ice cream socials" and picnics and lemonade and Sister Leila's fried chicken. The black gospel groups travelled from place to place mixing the blues sound with religious sounding words--sometimes making sense and sometimes not.
***** A TSUNAMI *****
In looking back at what was let loose on America, it was like a tidal wave, a tsunami. It would not have been possible if the American people had clung to the Authorized Version and obeyed it, but this they did not do. The preachers were enjoying the times, too. Consequently, it did not take long to bring us Americans to our knees and turn us inside out. All of our foundations were thrown out of course--but there was one thing that was not thrown out of course and cannot be thrown out of course--the Authorised Version of the Bible. If we sinners could just get to it we could be free.
We live in a time of deep deception and much evil. After eighteen to twenty-six years of television and education (those two great weapons of mass destruction), the system spits us out after grinding up our minds and bodies like hamburger meat. Stableness and maturity of mind are not ours, we are weak--and the weakening increases with every generation. We bear practically no resemblance to our forefathers. We cannot do what they did, we lack the skills. We do not know how to suffer. We do not possess their way of thinking and considering. We lack mentally.
From what I can see, the last generation of "real" parents were born in the 1940s. Their parents were ignorant and unlearned people who worked hard and lived independently and sent their children to school so that their children could have a "better" life. Those children then went to school and had skills but when they grew up they chose not to use them and chose not to teach them to their children--they assumed that education would ensure those children the opportunity to earn the funds necessary to buy what they needed and desired. In actually, though, their children didn't know what to do with the funds they earned and did not know how to cook the food they bought. Those children, with no real skills and a superfluity of sins and shocks in their wake (an idle mind seeks for things to do), make horrible husbands and wives--they've been through too much and seen too much--and they marry other disfunctional individuals just like them. The family unit, the basic unit of any society, is all but destroyed.
Even with all of the grocery store foods and modern conveniences, many of us can hardly do the basic things of life like build a house, cook from scratch, and run a family. I'm still trying to figure things out, by God's grace. May God help us and help us to help somebody else. Only a concerted effort to teach the scriptures and the useful, work lifestyle that the scriptures require and reveal (e.g., 2 Thessalonians 3:10, 1 Timothy 5:14) will:
- stem the tsunami tide as we consciously seek to live as men--doing the things that men have done from the beginning--e.g., building (even if only on a small scale), labouring, cooking, and sewing; and,
- set us on the course back toward normalcy and ensure that our children are better off than we are (...for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children 2 Corinthians 12:14).
And may we teach our children that there is yet more work to be done in any succeeding generations to get back to normalcy as the world continues in the downward spiral. THIS MUST BE ARTICULATED AND REALIZED IN THE CONSCIOUS MIND GENERATION AFTER GENERATION SO THAT EACH GENERATION IMPROVES AND IS NOT CAUGHT IN THE WEB AGAIN. HEREIN WE CAN SEE ONE OF THE POWERS OF THE MULTIGENERATIONAL LIBRARY compiled by the Christian for himself and his posterity to include--
- The Authorised (King James) Version of the scriptures (Pure Cambridge Edition); and,
- choice volumes--including homemade volumes on important subjects, artifacts, articles, etc. If articles are in a binder, the pages can be numbered by hand and a handwritten Table of Contents can be placed in the front of the binder. Binders are sold that have a plastic covering so that one can make a cover and spine for the binder.
The television and the school system are the two great weapons of mass destruction in America,
they are the processing plants destroying the souls of men by a law from their youth up.
The children are disintegrating right in front of their parents' faces.
The two ubiquitous mechanisms (television and the school system) are in place
and they are designed to reach and program every child unto corruption, uselessness, and deep deception.
Even if what we call "television" changes name or form--like being displayed on a computer or handheld screen or holograph, etc.--
it still will be telling a vision, it still will be programming and the people will still crave the sin that it delivers into their minds;
therefore, the people will continue to be deceived, even unto the worship of the beast and the dragon himself.
***** TOUCH NOT THE UNCLEAN THING *****
2 CORINTHIANS 6
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

I do not agree with Mr. Phelps' racialist views, but he is on-target concerning Rome--and in many ways concerning the situation with Black Americans--I am a Black American married to a Black American and am in no way prejudiced against myself or people of any race--Black, white, Native American, Jewish, Japanese, Italian, Greek, Samoan, Nigerian, Kenyan, Philippino, etc. I have known and enjoyed the fellowship of people of many different races. Mr. Phelps' massive tome (book), Vatican Assassins, includes some of his racialist views in the introductory materials, but the book is enlightening although it is too much for me to handle at one time. It has a lot of facts in it but it is written in a highly readable style. Somehow at various seasons, I have glanced at it and important pieces of the puzzle have come together for me. Vatican Assassins comes in hardcopy and on CD. I would think that those who are already aware of MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH would only consider such a volume if they felt a need to do research or perhaps to include it in the history section of their library (on the other hand, one can find articles that detail the major issues and bind them for their multi-generational library). I am personally glad to possess a copy of Vatican Assassins....
