TODAY’S BLOG ENTRY - © - NOVEMBER 21, 2017  

      In the first 400 years after the Lord Jesus Christ resurrected with victory over death, hell and the grave, the Scriptures had already been translated into more than 500 languages and dialects.  By 400AD the wicked Roman Catholic Church required that the Bible only be translated into Latin.  The Pope was elevated to being God’s agent on the earth and his power was not to be questioned.  The great proliferation of Scriptures of the first 400 years after the resurrection would be followed by 1000 years of Papal domination and darkness.

       In the midst of that darkness, to this day referred to as the Dark Ages, there were instances of illumination.

       Columba in 563AD started a Bible college. In Glastonbury, Northern Scotland, the Culdees, known as a secret society, protected Scriptures that were not the Pope’s Latin Text.  While there were many other sects and societies such as the Waldensians, it was from the Culdees that John Wycliffe emerged.

       In 1379 Wycliffe began his translation of the Bible into English.  There was no printing press and so hand written copies of Scripture portions were sent out by Wycliffe through missionaries who volunteered for the task.  There was John Huss who was burned at the stake for his trouble July 6, 1415, and Jerome of Prague who was burned at the stake in 1416.

        It was in 1408 that the Archbishop of York declared “We therefore decree and ordain, that from hence forth no unauthorized person shall translate any part of the Holy Scripture into English or any other language, under any for of book of treatise.

        John Wycliffe had died in 1384 but his work had gone on without him, which so angered the Pope that 44 years after his death, his bones were dug up and burned so as to “stamp out his unsavory memory.”  His Bible had already been banned in 1408, some copies were burned, and yet Roman Catholicism knows it is at its strongest in an authoritarian vacuum.

        Today’s church-goers know nothing of the bloody history of Romanism and as a result they accept Bibles based on the Roman Catholic texts. Rome wins: the unsavory memory of Bible-believing martyrs has been lost in the onset of these modern Dark Ages.

MOST RECENT RADIO BROADCASTS

Make arrangements with your local station to air this program in your area.
This program has seen souls saved and saints edified since 1980.




It was back in September 1980 that I produced my first radio program on a reel-to-reel recorder that stood eight feet tall.  The mechanics have changed, but radio remains a most effective means by which to speak to people as if it were one-on-one. Over the 37 years of broadcasting the results have always been there, perhaps because my program is very different from any and all the other Christian programming out there: give it a try!!

Today's McNuggett: As this series of blogs dealing with my most remarkable Bible collection winds down, a sense of sadness prevails: fundamentalism has died and the Evangelical infidenl is dancing on its grave.

  It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is written, but of whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, co17nsidering what goeth before and what followeth after.   Miles Coverdale
