The Death of Biblical Christianity: New Age Versions given by inspiration of Devils
The book New Age Bible Versions by G. A. Riplinger has been attacked by many who claim a profession of Christ.
The Blind Leading The Blind
The "profitcy" teachers listed below are bitter critics of Gail Riplinger's outstanding expose book, New Age Bible Versions. Yet, as they themselves have admitted, they never read the book! These men should be told that the Bible has a lot to say about bearing false witness. Here's a collection of actual quotes by these "learned men":
"I have not read Gail Riplinger's book."— Dave Hunt, The Berean Call.
"I have not read Riplinger's book, but I trust Dave Hunt, and he says it is inaccurate."— Peter Lalonde, This Week in Bible Prophecy.
"I have not read her book but Dave Hunt has told me that Gail Riplinger lies and cannot be trusted." — Arno Froese, Midnight Call.
"I have not read Riplinger's stupid book, but I know it's full of errors."— Hal Lindsey. Week in Review.
"Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." (Matthew 15:14)
—FLASHPOINT, Special Edition, p.3
Gail Riplinger's Response to James White's Critique of New Age Bible Versions [ Part 1 ] [ Part 2] [ Part 3 ] [ Part 4 ] [Part 5 ] [ Part 6 ] [ Part 7 ] Gail Riplinger "answers" James White's Critique of New Age Bible Versions in the book The King James Bible Controversy. From the book Blind Guides by G.A. Riplinger. Clearly exposes the hypocrisy and lies of the King James Bible Correctors.
But, as many of us know we are told within our Bible that, "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;" (1 Timothy 4:1). Do you really believe what you just read? We find in the book New Age Bible Versions:
"The author of The Aquarian Gospel says: "[M]en of this new age...message bear of the Spirit age... take up our pen and write." 28 Unitarian editor of the 'New' Greek Text, Vance Smith heeds the call and urges new versions to replace the 'Holy Ghost' with 'the Spirit'.29 The changes arise from 'ecumenical' pressures not from Greek manuscript evidence." page 383
Now, take and think upon what you have just read? In the King James Bible we find ONLY one Holy Ghost but many evil spirits. The "newer bibles" have replaced the third Person of the Godhead, the Holy Ghost with an evil spirit that is known in this world as the Spirit or the One!
1851 The Ghost Society at Cambridge, England.
1851 The Ghost Club Society founded in
Cambridge. Members include E. W. Benson, later Archbishop of Canterbury and
Arthur Balfour, later Prime Minister.
The thesis of the book New Age Bible Versions is simple, the Greek text of Westcott and Hort, the lexicons and dictionaries which are used to translate the NIV, NASB and many other modern versions are the direct result of being given by inspiration of devils! That a "new" Christianity is emerging from these new versions which is bringing about world wide apostasy, setting up the throne for the Antichrist and his One World "New" Christian Order.
We are told that Westcott and Hort started in 1871 their revision of the Greek Text of the New Testament. We are told that their membership in the Ghost Society "was short lived ...when they were still students at the University of Cambridge." But, like many things about this subject this is simply not true.
1851 Dec. 29,30th "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", Hort, A.F., Life and Letters of Fenton J.A. Hort, MacMillan and Co., London, 1896, vols. I, p.211
1851 The Ghost Society is founded in Cambridge by Rev. B. F. Westcott. We know that Westcott was an active member for at least 10 years, which during this time he and Hort was working on their Greek text.
1853 Westcott and Hort begin their work on their revision of the Greek Text of the New Testament to overthrow the " vile Textus Receptus".
1853 Apr. 19th "He (Westcott) and I are going to edit a Greek text of the New Testament some two or three years hence, if possible." Hort, A.F., Life and Letters of Fenton J.A. Hort, MacMillan and Co., London, 1896, vols. I, p. 250
By rejecting the truth of the King James Bible, those of the Ghost Club Society seek after a false inspiration of devils to give the world a bible which will be used to bring in the coming New Age of the Devil.
"Some twenty-five years before our Society was founded a few of the younger Fellows of Trinity College, Cambridge, chief of whom was Mr. B. F. Westcott - afterwards the famous Bishop of Durham - started a 'Ghost Society' very much on the lines of our SPR. In our Journal for April last year I gave the object and the brief history of this Society, which included among its members several Cambridge graduates - who subsequently became eminent, such as Archbishop Benson, Prof. Henry Sidgwick, and others. I will hand over for preservation among the archives of our Society the original document of the 'Cambridge Ghost Club' (as it was called), given to me by my friend the Archdeacon of Dublin."

Edward White BENSON 1877-1883
The actual scanned of page 98 and 99, vol.1 of The Life of Edward White Benson Sometime Archbishop of Canterbury
by his son Arthur Christopher Benson of Eton College, in two volumes, London 1899
Notice, on page 98, "Among my father's diversions at Cambridge was the foundation of a "Ghost" Society, the forerunner of the Psychical Society, for the investigation of the supernatural. Lightfoot, Westcott and Hort were among the members." Than it goes on to explain a dream of a murder his father had...
There are two very important points to make here:
1) The ""Ghost" Society, the forerunner of the Psychical Society". That is the Society for Psychical Research founded in 1882 also at Cambridge.
2) The members of this Society who are named here are: "my father's (Benson), Lightfoot, Westcott, and Hort.
If we go to the Society for Psychical Society website we are told:
The principal areas of study of psychical research concern exchanges between minds, or between minds and the environment, which are not dealt with by current, orthodox science. This is a large area, incorporating such topics as extrasensory perception (telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition and retrocognition), psychokinesis (paranormal effects on physical objects, including poltergeist phenomena), near-death and out-of-the-body experiences, apparitions, hauntings, hypnotic regression and paranormal healing. One of the Society's aims has been to examine the question of whether we survive bodily death, by evaluating the evidence provided by mediumship, apparitions of the dead and reincarnation studies. http://www.spr.ac.uk/index.php3?page=activities
Notice, "One of the Society's aims has been to examine the question of whether we survive bodily death", that is "Do you believe in ghosts?
The "principal areas of study of psychical research" is in direct contradiction to the Bible:
Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God. (Leviticus 19:31)
And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. (Leviticus 20:6)
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. (Deuteronomy 18:10,11)
The two important points to make here:
1) The ""Ghost" Society, the forerunner of the Psychical Society". That is the Society for Psychical Research founded in 1882 in direct contradiction to the Bible finds its roots with The Ghost Club Society of 1851 founded also at Cambridge.
2) The members of this Society who are named here are: "my father's (Benson), Lightfoot, Westcott, and Hort.
Popular superstitions, and the truth contained therein, with an account of mesmerism. By Herbert Mayo. From the 3d London edition.
Publication date: 1852., page 73
Notice from above, just one year after 1851 we find in a book published in 1852 "at Cambridge, he was secretary to a ghost society formed..."
The history of the supernatural in all ages and nations, and in all churches, Christian and pagan: demonstrating a universal faith. By William Howitt., Howitt, William, (1792-1879), Publication date: 1863, page 185, 186
Notice from above, on pages 185, and 186 in a book published in 1863, that "the Cambridge Spiritual Association, called in jest the Cambridge Ghost Club, and including many of the most distinguished members of that university, clergymen and professors of high note, and one or more bishops, has been established to enquire into the existence of spiritual phenomena, and has already decided on the reality of apparitions. The distinguished men who constitute this society give weight to their decisions, and form a pleasant contrast to the more recent outbreak of German Rationalism in the Church. They are signs of life remaining in the old iron-bound stump in the grass. Still more encouraging is the fact that various clergymen have earnestly examined the claims of Spiritualism, and embraced it as a great truth." We are told here that members of the Cambridge Ghost Club "Spiritualism, and embraced it as a great truth." That is, according to this book members of the Cambridge Ghost Club embraced paganism as a universal faith! Now if you did not get it the first time.
Notice from above, on page 458 of the same book, that we are told again, "The Cambridge Association for Spiritual Enquiry, familiarly called the Ghost Club, consisting of eminent members of the university, have stated that their carefully conducted researches on the subject of apparitions have led them to regard such appearances as a settled fact. A member of this association informed Mr. Dale Owen that he had collected 2,000 cases of apparitions; and Dr. Garth Wilkinson says truly, in his'Life of Swedenborg,"" Why, Swedenborg's (see Modern Spiritualism), is said to be the father of Spiritualism. That is, the belief that the dead communicate with the living! Why, does not Robert L. Sumner know these facts ? Is Robert L. Sumner blinded by a seducing spirit (1 Timothy 4:1 KJV) ?
In yet another book, Planchette; or, The despair of science. Being a full account of modern spiritualism, its phenomena, and the various theories regarding it. With a survey of French spiritism., by Sargent, Epes, 1813-1880., Publication date: 1869, on page 203 in the above, we are told in this book in 1869 that "the Ghost Club" by than believed that "apparitions" were "a settled fact".
Notice, in this same book (Planchette; or, The despair of science. Being a full account of modern spiritualism, its phenomena, and the various theories regarding it. With a survey of French spiritism., by Sargent, Epes, 1813-1880., Publication date: 1869,) on the very next page 204 after we are told on page 203 in the above, that "the Ghost Club" by than believed that "apparitions" were "a settled fact", we find the father of Spiritualism Swedenborg again associated with Westcott's Ghost Club (see Modern Spiritualism).
The above facts are belittled by Robert L. Sumner in his article, Were Westcott & Hort Members of a Ghost Society?
We are told in the article,
To get at the TRUTH, note the following —
(1) The Guild was not formed (Westcott's association was short lived, as we assume was Hort's) when the two were mature biblicists seeking to restore the New Testament Greek text, but when they were still students at the University of Cambridge.
I find this interesting, seeing that this "Guild" can be trace from 1851 up to the present day! "Westcott's association was short lived" ? What do you mean by "short lived"? Westcott was an active member from 1851 to 1862.
Life and Letters of Brooke Foss Westcott, by his son Arthur Westcott, vol. I pages 117, 118, 119
Westcott's son Arthur wrote approximately 940 pages about his father's life. The Life and Letters of Brooke Foss Westcott is a two-volume work. These books contain many reproductions of letters written by the elder Westcott.
According to Robert L. Sumner in his article, Were Westcott & Hort Members of a Ghost Society? "Westcott's association was short lived" therefore "when the two were mature biblicists seeking to restore the New Testament Greek text" they were no longer "students at the University of Cambridge" and members of the Ghost Society. But, we find Robert L. Sumner statement to be in direct contradiction to the above scanned page from the Biographical Dictionary, published by Oxford University. Note, Westcott & Hort did NOT begin working on their Greek Texts in 1871, when they were so-called no longer members of the Ghost Society. The Revision Committee began its work in 1871, not Westcott and Hort. Westcott & Hort began working on their Greek test only one year after their Ghost Club Society in 1852.
Robert L. Sumner in his article, Were Westcott & Hort Members of a Ghost Society?
We are told in the article,
(2) The author of the article above erred in the name. It was not the "Ghost Society," but the "Ghostlie Guild." In short, it seems to have been exactly the kind of humorous name a bunch of college kids would give such a society. While an error in the name is not of earth-shaking import, it does show the inattention to detail of which these heresy hunters are often guilty.
The history of the supernatural in all ages and nations, and in all churches, Christian and pagan: demonstrating a universal faith. By William Howitt., Howitt, William, (1792-1879), Publication date: 1863, page 185
Notice from above, on page 185, that the actual name is "the Cambridge Spiritual Association" which was "called in jest the Cambridge Ghost Club" . In jest it has been called "Ghost Club", Ghost Society", "Ghostlie Guild", even "Ghost Club Society" as well as many other names. But the official name was "the Cambridge Spiritual Association" .
Erred in name? Not according to Dr. Peter Underwood, the President of today's "Ghost Club Society". If one can't even research the subject matter long enough to discern when one is jesting, how are we to take them serious.
(3) The Guild was not formed so that its members could communicate with ghosts. Quite the contrary, it was intended as a scientific society "established for the investigation of all supernatural appearances and effects." Its members were to collect all such accounts possible, investigate them, discard those obviously false, and seek to document any that might be true. Members were instructed, in dealing with alleged accounts, to "request written communications, with full details of persons, times, and places," although the informers' names would not be used "without special permission." Still, a guild member "making any communication should be acquainted with the names, and knowledge or conviction." Even as college kids, then, Westcott and Hort were not participating in "seances," playing with ouija boards, becoming involved in "crystal-gazing," or sampling any other form of phenomenon of the spirit world.
The above is not what we are told by those who are current members of the "Ghost Club Society". I am thinking that no time was made in looking at this subject, to over look its name and its activity ! Yes they were in the study of necromancy look at the scanned pages above !
The above scanned page is from The Hour Of Our Death, by Philippe Aries, translated from the French by Helen Weaver, Barnes & Noble edition, 2000. Notice, again; we have in direct contradiction to Dr. Robert L. Sumner's statements in his article attacking the King James Bible; that " in 1882, this Ghost Society adopted the definitive name by which it is know throughout the would, the Society for Psychical Research, or SPR..." Did you also noticed, that the Ghost Society was trying to communicate with the dead? Thus, the jesting of calling it the: "Ghost Society! Do you not find it strange that the members of the Ghost Club Society from 1851 to the present day all claim to be trying to speak with the dead ? Dr. Robert L. Sumner would have us believe that the very members themselves were lying about their use of necromancy.
Robert L. Sumner in his article, Were Westcott & Hort Members of a Ghost Society?
We are told in the article,
(4) One could not doubt the reality of some of these apparitions and spectacles without denying the existence of biblical demons. We refuse to do that.
You seem to have refused to take a look at the subject as a whole! To have made fundamental mistakes in your reply to Jack Chick's article is well not surprising if you are already in the same camp as Westcott and Hort!
(5) Perhaps the most blatant misrepresentation in the entire Battle Cry article was in the opening sentence of paragraph one (see above). Here is what Arthur Westcott actually wrote about his father: "What happened to this Guild in the end I have not discovered. My father ceased to interest himself in these matters, not altogether, I believe, from want of faith in what, for lack of a better name, one must call Spiritualism, but because he was seriously convinced that such investigations led to no good."
Perhaps those who would attack the word Of God for the English people, the King James Bible, should spend more time on this subject!!!
1862 The London Ghost Club. Members include the Hon. A.Gordon, Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick: a Canon of Westminster and the Registrar of Cambridge University.
The above scanned page is from A Short History of The Ghost Club Society, by Peter Underwood. The same Peter Underwood who has in his possession the original records from Westcott's 1851 Ghost Club Society. It is important to notice that:
1) Peter Underwood is the current President of the "Ghost Club Society". Therefore, not only is it the forerunner of the Society for Psychical Research, but, it is alive and well today!
2) Peter Underwood states in the above, that "Rev. B. F. Westcott afterwards Bishop of Durham" was the founder of "the Ghost Society" in 1851. And in direct contradiction to Dr. Robert L. Sumner's statement "Westcott's association was short lived, as we assume was Hort's" in his article attacking the King James Bible; we have Peter Underwood in the above saying that Rev. B. F. Westcott was still with the "Ghost Club Society" when it "resurfaced" in 1862. Almost 10 years after "Rev. B. F. Westcott" founded the society, we are told he is still an active member!
Why would the translators of the newer versions of the English Bible use a Greek text which come from those who were using necromancy ?
Why would those who attack the King James Bible believer be so ignorant to the fact that the Greek text of Westcott and Hort was by inspiration of devils ?
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils."

"Finally, in 1882, a committee was formed with Sidgwick as the president, which became the Society for Psychical Research. The initial membership was mostly made up of Spiritualists and friends of the Sidgwick group like Lewis Carroll, Mark Twain and William Gladstone. They formed six research committees to investigate hypnotism and clairvoyance; telepathy; sensitives; mediums; ghosts and hauntings; and records and archives."

Foundation of the Society for Psychical Research
Some twenty-five years before our Society was founded a few of the younger Fellows of Trinity College, Cambridge, chief of whom was Mr. B. F. Westcott - afterwards the famous Bishop of Durham - started a 'Ghost Society' very much on the lines of our S.P.R. In our Journal for April last year I gave the object and the brief history of this Society, which included among its members several Cambridge graduates - who subsequently became eminent, such as Archbishop Benson, Prof. Henry Sidgwick, and others. I will hand over for preservation among the archives of our Society the original document of the 'Cambridge Ghost Club' (as it was called), given to me by my friend the Archdeacon of Dublin.
As regards the foundation of our own Society, I have corrected elsewhere the misunderstanding which Prof. Richet and others have fallen into;(1) and also I wrote, by request, a fuller account of the early history of our Society.(2) Though it is true I happened to be the chief instrument in the foundation of our Society in 1882 - and of kindred societies in Canada and the United States in 1884 - yet the high position and respect the S.P.R. has won is chiefly due to Sidgwick, Myers, and Gurney, the three great pillars upon which the edifice of our Society was originally built. These eminent men were unlike in many ways: Sidgwick by his adhesion to the S.P.R. greatly impressed the academic world, for his influence, wisdom, and caution were widely recognized; Myers by his enthusiasm, brilliant talents, and profound intuition, was the corner stone of the S.P.R. till his death in 1901: Gurney with his industry and immense range of knowledge was essential to the early progress and stability of our Society.

A Very Brief History of the Ghost Club
by Alan Murdie
Updated with information from "The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits" by Rosemary Ellen Guiley
"The club has its roots in Cambridge when in 1855 fellows at Trinity College began to discuss ghosts and psychic phenomena. Formally launched in London in 1862 (attracting some light hearted ridicule in "The Times"), it counted amongst its early members Charles Dickens and Cambridge academics and clergymen.
This group undertook practical investigations of spiritualist phenomena, which was then much in vogue and would meet and discuss ghostly subjects. The Ghost Club seems to have dissolved in the 1870s following the death of Dickens but it was relaunched in 1882 simultaneously with the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) with whom there was an initial overlap of members.
The Ghost Club was revived on All Saints Day 1882 by A.A.Watts and a famous contemporary medium, the Reverend Stainton Moses. Whilst the SPR was a body devoted to scientific study the Club remained a selective and secretive organisation of convinced believers for whom psychic phenomena were an established fact. Stainton Moses resigned from the vice presidency of the SPR in 1886 and thereafter devoted himself to the Club which met monthly, with attendance being considered obligatory except for the most pressing reasons. Membership was small - 82 members over 54 years - but during this period the Club attracted some of the most original - and controversial minds in psychical research, serving almost as a place of refuge for those who were unable to pursue activities elsewhere. These included Sir William Crookes who attracted scandal after investigation into Florence Cook, a medium.
At this stage of its existence the Ghost Club might possibly be viewed as a Victorian occult or spiritualist society celebrating November 2nd, the feast of All Souls. The archives of the Club reveal that the names of members - both living and dead were solemnly recited each November 2nd. Each individual, living or dead, was
recognized as still being a member of the Club. On more than one occasion deceased members were believed to have made their presence felt!
On the earthly plane, meetings discussed topics as diverse as Egyptian magic and second sight. The Principal of Jesus College, Cambridge, Arthur Grey was later to fictionalized the Ghost Club in 1919 as "The Everlasting Club" of Jesus College - a famous Cambridge ghost story that many still believe to be true.
Into this circle the poet W.B.Yeats (joined 1911) and later Frederick Bligh Bond (joined 1925) who became infamous with his obsessive investigations into spiritualism at Glastonbury. Bligh Bond later left the country and later became active in the American Society for Psychical Research and was ordained into the Old Catholic Church, rejoining the Ghost Club on his return to Britain in 1935.
However. at the Ghost Club attendance dwindled and the change in the 20th century from séance room investigation to laboratory based research meant that the Ghost Club was becoming out of touch with contemporary psychic research or parapsychology as it became known in the 1930s. Harry Price, world famous in the 1930s as a psychic researcher and for his investigation into Borley Rectory joined as a member in 1927 as did psychologist Dr.Nandor Fodor who represented the changing approach to psychical research taking place. With attendance falling, Price, Bligh Bond and a handful of surviving members agreed to wind up the Club in 1936 after 485 meetings, and this took place on November 2nd 1936. The Ghost Club records narrowly escaped being destroyed because of their confidential nature but were deposited in the British Museum under the proviso that they would be closed until 1962.
However these events proved only a temporary suspension for within 18 months Price had re-launched the Ghost Club as a society dining event where psychic researchers and mediums delivered after dinner talks. Among members in this period were Dr.C.E.M.Joad, Sir Julian Huxley and Kathleen Goldney.
Following Price's death in 1948 activities lapsed but the Club was again re-launched by members of the committee, Philip Paul and Peter Underwood. From 1962 author Peter Underwood served as President and many account of Club activities are found in his books. Tom Perrott joined the club in 1967 and served as Chairman from 1971 to 1993. In 1993, however, the club underwent a period of internal disruption. Peter Underwood left to become Life President of another society, taking some of the club members with him. During this period, Tom Perrott resigned due to the political turmoil, but was invited to return to the Ghost Club as chairman, which he accepted. With this turmoil behind the club, it was decided to implement a more democratic feel to proceedings, to abolish the "invite only" clause in its membership policy, to absorb the role of Chairman and President into one post, and to allow 'ordinary' members to have their say in council meetings, and encouraging them to become more involved in club affairs. During this period the Ghost Club also expanded its remit to take in the study of UFOs, dowsing, crypto zoology, etc. In 1998, Perrott resigned as Chairman (although he is still active in club affairs), and barrister Alan Murdie was elected as his successor."
1938 -1947 Second revival. With Harry Price as Chairman. Members include Lord Amwell, Algernon Blackwood, Mrs K. M. (Mollie Goldney, Sir Ernest Jelf, K. E. Shelley QC, Sir Osbert Sitwell, Dr Paul Tabori and Peter Underwood.
1954 -1993 Third revival. With Peter Underwood as President. Members K. E. Shelley QC, Dr Christabel Nicholson,Dr Paul Tabori, Donald Campbell MBE, Peter Sellers,Dennis Wheatley, Dr George Owen, Lord Dowding, Ena Twigg and Sir Julian Huxley. The Ghost Club Society. With Peter Underwood as Life President and Colin Wilson as vice-President.
1994 - present
Peter Underwood is no longer
having founded his own society in 1994. It is Peter Underwood who has in
his possession the original records from Westcott's 1851 Ghost Club Society. The name of this new society and
its website is
The Ghost Club Society. A very interesting note that we find on their
website is that, "The
Ghost Club Society is the oldest society dedicated to the paranormal in the UK.
Founded in 1851 by a small group of gentlemen the club has since grown and developed
over the years. Mr Peter Underwood is the current life president of the
society." So, we now have in the year 2005 those claiming to have it's
roots not only to 1862, back all the way back to 1851 with Westcott and Hort. Their
address is- Mr Trevor Kenward, Pine Trees, 26 Dewlands Rd, Verwood.

Note, two subjects keep appearing within our research on the Ghost Club Society: that of homosexual and vampirism of so-called professing "Christians" who drink actual human blood.. As we continual to bring you information on Westcott and Hort, we will now begin to develop the Ghost Club Society association with homosexuality and vampirism. The degree if any that Westcott and Hort and the other original members of the Ghost Club in 1851 were involved in homosexual and vampirism is at this time unknown. Yes, we understand that as if the involvement of necromancy to bring about an revision of the Greek Text of the New Testament was not bad enough, we now must also deal with the subjects of homosexuality and vampirism in relationship to bible translations! We have documented the involvement of Ghost Club members in homosexual and vampirism back to 1882. May the God of the Bible have mercy on our souls. We apologize beforehand for our feeble attempt to bring you this information. The hour of our Lord and Saviour's return draweth near!

The Teen Study Bible gives a standard dictionary definition, but the "alternative definition" is disgusting. Remember this is aimed directly at impressionable Christian teenagers. The "alternate definition" (1993 edition) for "sex" is "—another fun thing mean adults tell teenagers to keep away from."

THE CHRONOLOGY OF BIBLE REVISION "Popular literature in defense of the Authorised Version has created the universal impression that revision of the Bible began with B.F. Westcott and F.J.A. Hort, who compiled the New Greek Text, and the English Revision Committee which produced the 1881 English Revised Version (ERV). However, fully one half of the Bible revision story has been suppressed. Christians may be surprised to discover that Baptists in the United States actually initiated the process of Bible revision. In 1850, one year before Westcott and Hort embarked on their thirty year mission, and twenty years before the English Revision Committee convened for the first time, the American Bible Union, comprised primarily of Baptists, was organized for the express purpose of revising the English Bible. During production of the ERV, the English Committee personally collaborated with members of the American Bible Union and regularly consulted the revised version it had produced in 1865. Serving on the American revision committee were Philip Schaff, future Chairman for the American Standard Version (1901), and Timothy Dwight, a member of the Order of Skull and Bones and future President of Yale University."

THE CHRISTAQUARIANS? A SOCIOLOGY OF CHRISTIANS IN THE NEW AGE "This thesis poses the hypothesis that there exists an identifiable group of New Age Christians who occupy the crossover between Christianity and the New Age movement. These people are given the name, ‘The Christaquarians’. Who are the Christaquarians? What do they believe? How do they differ from Christians and how similar are they to Aquarians – to New Agers? These are some of the questions this thesis seeks to answer."
THE THINKING, THEORIES AND THEOLOGY OF DRS. WESTCOTT AND HORT "In reading various articles and books which concern themselves with the great Bible version controversy of our day, the reader cannot help but be impressed with the fact that a multitude of scholars affirm variously that, “Westcott and Hort slew the Textus Receptus. They furnished the death blow to the Textus Receptus.” There seems to be a special emphasis on the part played by Fenton John Anthony Hort in this apparent triumph of Codex B. and its Allies, over the Textus Receptus. For this reason the present paper will deal primarily with the THINKING, THEORIES, AND THEOLOGY of Dr. Hort.
WESTCOTT & HORT-- WERE THEY MEMBERS OF A "GHOST SOCIETY" ? by Dr. ROBERT SUMNER "There is a "KJV-Only" network of publications that, by quoting each other, are mass instigators of misinformation..." Dr. Sumner's hatred for the King James Bible can only be explain as "giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils"
