The most effective LIE is the HALF-TRUTH, because in part it can be defended with incontestable logic! For example: The official 9/11 story (concerning the New York World Trade Center attacks in 2001) is a half-truth! The part that is true is that two planes were deliberately crashed into buildings 1 and 2. The part that is false is that those planes caused the buildings to crumble to the ground. In truth (as dozens of firefighters at Ground Zero later testified), is that buildings 1, 2 and 7 were all brought down by BOMBS in the buildings!!! A demolition company (that younger brother Marvin Bush administrated) planted those explosives in the months prior to 9-11. The truth is that 911 WAS AN INSIDE JOB!!!

Likewise, the modern Bible versions are a HALF-TRUTH! The part that is true is that many Scripture passages have been made easier to understand (that is, the ones which haven't been horribly corrupted). The part that is false is the corruption of hundreds of key Scripture passages concerning Christ's deity, character and preeminence (i.e., the doctrine of Christ). Since some passages are made simpler for the reader to comprehend (especially bilingual speaking people), they buy into the HALF-TRUTH. The truthful part of the half-truth (i.e., that some Bible verses are made easier to understand), can be defended with incontestable logic. Who can argue with that logic? This is how Bible college professors, evangelists and church pastors are woefully deceived by Satan! The deadly LIE is that the Gospel has been corrupted—because the meaning of repentance has been corrupted, and because the way of salvation has been corrupted, Christ's deity has been corrupted, the blood has been corrupted, the Godhead has been corrupted—All in the modern Alexandrian-based Bible PERversions!!! If you have an NIV, ERV, ESV, NASB, RSV, NKJV, HCSB, LB, or some other modern polluted translation, you have a HALF-TRUTH (which is the most effective lie Satan has to offer, because it sells)!!!

Thankfully, Dr. Peter S. Ruckman fought against the same exact Bob Jones University camp that I am today! I had no idea of the magnitude of this battle until Harvest Baptist Church (all BJU graduates) forced the issue on me in 2014. I hadn't a clue! What they meant for evil, God meant for good (Genesis 50:20). I am not kidding, and you couldn't make this stuff up, Harvest's slogan for the year (with a big banner hanging up in the church auditorium for the entire year I was there) read, “God meant it for good - Genesis 50:20.” I cannot help but see the humor in all this. God is so amazing! I love the folks at Harvest, truly, so much, and I care about people; but they really deserve the knuckleheads of the year award over there! It came as an encouraging surprise to me to learn that Dr. Ruckman had paved the way before me to fight this very same noble battle over the inspiration of the Word of God. THERE IS NOT A MORE WORTHY FIGHT TODAY!

Satan tries to redefine the term “radical”

I am a soldier for the Lord Jesus Christ. 2nd Timothy 2:3-4, “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” My wife divorced me in 2006 against my will. That's okay, I'll live alone and serve God by myself. I underwent two major neck surgeries in 2010 and 2011 with no one by my side. I wanted to die, but God's love kept me going. I wanted to do what Ben Fieldhouse did, but thankfully didn't. Ben Fieldhouse was a member of HBC who went and commit suicide in 2010 (about the same time I almost did too). Harvest Baptist Church kicked me out and refused to let me return. That's okay, I'll be lonely and have no social life, but I WILL STAND FOR THE TRUTH!!! I'll continue to stand alone, living alone if that is God's will for me, but I WILL STAND!!!
