What was Wrong with C. I. Scofield?

It is truly astonishing to see many “KJV only” preachers continue to use a Scofield Reference Bible, and to defend his notes & doctrines…

Here is “Point XI” of the Introduction to the Scofield Reference Bible

XI. “After mature reflection it was determined to use the Authorized Version. None of the many Revisions have commended themselves to the people at large. The Revised Version, which has now been before the public for twenty-seven years, gives no indication of becoming in any general sense the people’s Bible of the English-speaking world. The discovery of the Sinaitic MS. and the labours in the field of textual criticism of such scholars as Griesbach, Lachmann, Tischendorf, Tregelles, Winer, Alford, and Westcott and Hort, have cleared the Greek textus receptus of minor inaccuracies, while confirming in a remarkable degree the general accuracy of the Authorized Version of that text. Such emendations of the text as scholarship demands have been placed in the margins of this edition, which therefore combines the dignity, the high religious value, the tender associations of the past, the literary beauty and remarkable general accuracy of the Authorized Version, with the results of the best textual scholarship.”

– C.I. Scofield (January 1, 1909)

Introduction to the Scofield Reference Bible, Point XI – page 3-4

Although many “fundamental” Bible-Believer’s are Baptist, Scofield NEVER was…

Although most “Bible-believers” are opposed to a divorced & remarried man serving in the pulpit, as “pastor”, Scofield WAS divorced-remarried & still pastoring, all at the same time… CI Scofiled 1

In fact, in 1882, while separated from his first wife and daughters, he began pastoring the First Congregational Church of Dallas, TX.  Eventually, C.I. Scofield was officially divorced from his wife in 1883 (for his neglect). Within a few months into 1884, he had married another woman, and all-the-while maintaining his pastoral ministry at the First Congregational Church of Dallas, TX! (Now known as ~ “Scofield Memorial Church”)

Shame on such disobedience to Scripture! Shame on such un-Biblical congregations! If only there had been godly, Biblical men in the congregation, who would have stood up to such arrogant rebellion, there might never have been such a blight on Christianity as the Scofield Reference Bible. (Pastor Furse spends more than one chapter of his book detailing the many errors of this “study-Bible”.)

1Timothy 3:1-7

“This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;  3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;  4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.  7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.” (KJV)

Independent Baptist historian, James Beller, admits, “The honest truth is that we can never know the whole truth about Mr. Scofield. That there are gaps in Scofield’s life there can be no doubt. He is an enigmatic figure.”  (The Soul of St. Louis: A Historical Narrative of Revival in the Gateway City –  Arnold, Miss.: Prairie Fire, 1998, p 145)

And, as author David Lutzweiler noted, “One thing I have to say about Scofield is that his entire life was consistent. That is, it was filled with enigmas from beginning to end, both pre-conversion and post-conversion.”  (The Praise of Folly: The Enigmatic Life & Theology of C.I. Scofield – Lamplighter Educational Services, 2009 [Apologetics Group Media Materials] – p 189)

Scofield claimed that Jesus “adopted” Talmudic teachings! (See for yourself, in the SRB notes on pages 1098-1099 – Luke 16)… The Talmud?? Really?!!

Scofield stated that the “day of Christ” was a “mistranslation” in the King James’ Authorized Version of 2Thessalonians 2:2!!! (His preferred switch to “day of the Lord” creates a BIG ERROR in Eschatology!)

And the “New Scofield Reference Bible” is even worse!

What about G. Campbell Morgan?

G. Campbell Morgan – Baptist Minister, Author, Evangelist

For most of his life G. Campbell Morgan taught the dispensational view on Israel and the Jews, but towards the end of his life he changed his views on the relationship of Israel and The Church —

In 1943, two years before he passed to be with the Lord, G. Campbell Morgan wrote to a correspondent concerning the union of Israel and the church:

“I am quite convinced that all the promises made to Israel are found, are finding, and will find, their perfect fulfillment in the church. It is true that in time past, in my expositions, I gave a definite place to Israel in the purposes of God. I have now come to the conviction, as I have just said, that it is the new and spiritual Israel that is intended.”  

(Letter to Rev. H. F. Wright, New Brunswick, Victoria)

–From A New Heaven and a New Earth, Archibald Hughes, Presbyterian and Reformed Press, Box 185, Nutley, N.J.)

Does the True God of the Bible have a “feminine side”, named “Shekinah”???

Have you ever heard the term “Shekinah” in your local church service?  Did you assume that it was just another name for God, or maybe one of the many Biblical attributes of God?

Think Again!

(“Shekinah” or “Shekhina” appears NOWHERE in the Bible!)  …So, where does it come from?

Answer:  The Talmud, the Kabbalah, & the Scofield Reference Bible

“Shekhinah” is the “feminine attribute of God” — yes, you read that right — God’s “feminine side”!!!

Thanks to the SRB, “Shekhinah” has been welcome in undiscerning congregations for decades!

The most sacred place on earth to the Jew was the temple. The most sacred place in the temple was the holy of holies. Now the building itself was not sacred. It was made so by something within the holy of holies. This was the Shekinah Glory, representing the presence of God with His people. This Glory hovered over the mercy seat.”

“This place was so sacred that no one could look upon it but one man. That one man was the high priest. He, on the seventh month and the tenth day of the month each year, could enter, and only then could he enter if he brought with him the blood of the sacrifice on the day of atonement. This man (the high priest) was chosen by God. Imagine how he felt! Imagine how sacred was his annual entrance through the veil into the very presence of God represented by the Shekinah Glory hovering over the mercy seat! Imagine how honored he felt! He alone was chosen by God to enter into this, the holiest place of all.” ~ SOURCE:  pastor Jack Hyles –  The Holy Spirit And The Opposite Sex(chapter 20) – Meet the Holy Spirit (1982)

(NOTE: it is interesting that Jack Hyles referred to “Shekinah”  when teaching his followers about “the opposite sex”…  Did Hyles invite the spirit of “Shekinah” into his family & his church??? 

…More Accusations & Lawsuits against Hyles

Sadly, the sensual “spirit of Shekinah” was evident in the life of Hyles, his son, and his son-in-law!    — SEE MORE BELOW —


The following link (below) leads to some inappropriate and pornographic images (photos taken by STAR TREK’s Leonard Nimoy — in honor of “Shekhina” — whom Mr. Nimoy refers to as his female god!)  Nimoy was interviewed by the TV show, “Sex + Religion”, and this interview can be viewed in two parts, on this external site (again, we warn you, all of Mr. Nimoy’s “art” is pornographic— but his, and his Rabbi’s explanation of “Shekinah” is VERY informative!)  Click here to view Nimoy’s video interview.  BEWARE!  Graphic Content!

Nimoy’s Rabbi’s explanation of “Shekinah” (as quoted in the book, Who is Israel?) —

Narrator: “John Rosove is Leonard’s Rabbi. [Temple Israel – Hollywood Synagogue] He’s the one who first told Leonard about the Shekhina…”

Nimoy: “… it makes people uncomfortable, the idea that God is a woman…”

Rabbi Rosove: “I have to say this is not a modern concept [that God is a woman—“Shekhina”]… If you read the Bahir and the Kabbalistic literature from the mid-evil period, these Rabbis were ‘right there’— they were very erotically oriented— if you go into a very Hasidic Shul, there is ‘ecstatic’ prayer going on, that verges on the ‘erotic’… The Hasidim – when they’re davening— it’s as though they were ‘making love’…  So, this controversy, I think, is a reflection of a ‘Puritanical-Western-American’ world that needs to ‘get over itself’…”

Nimoy: [in spite of the nudity in his book, “Shekhina”] “…I consider myself to be a good Jew… if you think that you might be offended by what I’m about to show you, do what my father told me to do, [in the synagogue] and don’t look…”


Every Head of State is “expected” to honor the “Shekhinah” at the Wailing Wall!

What’s Wrong with John Hagee??


For more, click on this external resource link:

John Hagee, the Scofield Bible, and “Israel”

What is wrong with John Hagee & CUFI?

John Hagee is the founder of “CUFI” – “Christians United for Israel”…

While that title may sound good, please understand what Hagee actually means:

“…The first rule adopted by Christians United for Israel was that there would be no proselytizing at our events. CUFI exists only to honor and support the Jewish people, never to convert them…” ~ By John C. Hagee, The Forward, May 13, 2010

“It is time for Christians everywhere to recognize that the nation of Israel will never convert to Christianity and join the Baptist church in their town.”  ~ John Hagee, In Defense of Israel, 2011, page 148

If one does not “preach the gospel” to the Jew, then one is guilty of the WORST kind of “hatred” towards the Jew!  How can anyone be more “anti-Semitic” than that?  John Hagee (and others) are NOT “friends of Israel”. They are leading them into the “Broadway” that leads to destruction! [Matthew 7]

Some of the statements of heresy contained in John Hagee’s book, In Defense of Israel:

“The Jews were not rejecting Jesus as Messiah; it was Jesus who was refusing to be the Messiah to the Jews.” ~ In Defense of Israel, 2011, (page 140)

“They wanted Him to be the Messiah, but He flatly refused.” (page 141)

“He refused to be their (Jews’) Messiah, choosing instead to be the Savior of the world.” (page 143)

“In refusing to drink the cup, Jesus rejected to the last detail the role of Messiah in word or deed. The Jews did not reject Jesus as Messiah; it was Jesus who rejected the Jewish desire for him to be their Messiah.” (pages 144-145)

Listen to Pastor Furse’s sermon ~ “God’s Vine & His Vineyard” (click on the link here)

Listen to this young woman’s plea for people to Beware of John Hagee:

What is wrong with John Hagee’s congregation?!!!

As with C. I. Scofield ~  How can a man divorce his wife, marry another woman [from his former church], and continue pastoring at his new church? Shame on that congregation!  [1 Timothy 3]

“In 1975, he (John Hagee) had resigned as pastor of a charismatic church because of his immorality. He then became pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. After his wife divorced him, Hagee married a young woman from the former church (Calvary Contender, June 15, 1994).”

John Hagee

Sam Gipp’s strange dispensationalism

“He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.” ~ John 1:41

“The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.” John 4:25-26

According to the Scriptures, “Christ” means “Messiah”(John 1:41 & 4:25). Is “Jesus Christ” your Christ? If He is not your “Christ”, then how can you call yourself a “Christian”? Seems pretty simple, doesn’t it? If He is one’s “Christ”, then He must also be one’s “Messiah”!

“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” ~ 1John 2:22  [compare with John 1:41, above ~ “Christ” = “Messiah”]

Why does Sam Gipp sound like a heretic?

Sam GippNot only a liberal “neo-evangelical”, like John Hagee, but even Sam Gipp, a well-known, “Independent Baptist”, has succumbed to the silliness of Scofield’s Zionism. Gipp is known as a “Defender of the King James Bible”… Unfortunately, he misrepresents many other “KJV-independent Baptists” (like ourselves) when it comes to Dispensational-Zionism. The following is a direct quote from Sam Gipp, preached in a sermon at the Treasure Valley Baptist Church in Meridian, Idaho (August 2013). Here is what he said:

“…You know what I never call Jesus Christ? I never call Him ‘my Messiah‘. Unless you’re a Jew, He’s not your Messiah. Are you from Gentile stock? We were never promised ‘a Messiah’…”

It needs to be pointed out here, that although Sam Gipp is known for his stance on the KJV, he uses the old “Scofield-Reference-KJV-Bible” (see his YouTube video).  Mr. Gipp, himself, serves as a living demonstration to the powerful influence that even the built-in NOTES in one’s Bible can have. Pastor Furse’s book explains in detail how the “Scofield doctrine” came about.

What’s Wrong with Sam Gipp??

PLEASE NOTE: Pastor Furse privately contacted Sam Gipp (via email) more than once, to ask if he meant what he said, or if he would like to retract his statement concerning Jesus, as his Messiah. To date, he has not…  Instead, Mr. Gipp insulted Matt Furse with name calling, and arrogant innuendoes. (Pastor Furse still has the emails to prove this.) After the M2Z DVD came out, Mr. Gipp made a YouTube video, and in it he continues to call names and make insults against those who made the documentary. He refers to Matt Furse as the “muppet pastor”, as if Pastor Furse were someone’s puppet.

The King James Bible is Always Right.  But sadly, even those who endorse It are capable of gross error.

The Bible teaches that “Christ” = “Messiah” (John 1:41)  False doctrine needs to be exposed, wherever it is found. Wrong is wrong. God’s people must THINK for themselves, using His Word as their final authority. (Acts 17:11)

For Further Bible study:

Compare Paul’s “Gentile” connection to the “Lost Tribes” in Romans 9:25-26 with Hosea 2:23 & 1:10… Paul is including “Gentiles” in his definition of the “lost tribes” of Israel!!! 

Furthermore, in 1Corinthians (written to the Gentile believers at Corinth) Paul addresses them as “brethren”, and he refers to the Old Testament fathers as “our fathers” (both as his fathers AND the Gentile believers‘ fathers!)  Paul considered the Corinthian Gentile believers to be “brethren” and to have shared his same “fathers”!

1Corinthians 10:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.”

Paul also told the Corinthians that these Old Testament stories about “our fathers” are examples (ensamples) for us, today!  Paul “spiritualized” the Old Testament texts!  He reveals them all as examples for us (saved) who are living in the last days!

Listen to Pastor Furse’s sermon – “God’s Vine & His Vineyard” (Click on the Link)

(v6) “Now these things were our examples… (v11) Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”  (1Corinthians 10:6, 11)

Romans 2:28-29 “For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.”

Actual Excerpt from the Sermon:

[NOTE— In his original sermon, Gipp ridiculed two other Baptist preachers from the pulpit, with whom he happened to disagree… Unfortunately for him, he only buried himself even deeper— “Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.” – Proverbs 26:27]

Full Sermon:

And now more recently, Gipp has dug his own pit even deeper! (Proverbs 26:27)

In May of 2017, Sam Gipp was preaching at the Northside Baptist Church in Elgin, Illinois— there, he infers that “Jesus” was NOT the correct name that Joseph & Mary were to give to Christ! He went on to say that “Jesus” is NOT the name that the saved will refer to Him, at His coming!

Apparently, Mr. Gipp forgot about such verses as—

“Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.” (Matthew 1:19-25)

“And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.” (Luke 2:21)

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)

View the following excerpts from Gipp’s “sermons”, as well as the full sermon from May 2017:

WHERE did Sam Gipp get the following doctrine???  “Plan B” ???  Is this fictional “story” not ADDING to the Bible??? (See below, from a sermon in May 2017)

In the video below (the full sermon- preached at Northside Baptist Church/Elgin, Ill), at around minute 48, Sam Gipp suggests that those who believe in “replacement theology” could lose their salvation! He went on to suggest that Israel has never committed Abortion or Sodomy…apparently, he hasn’t read Who is Israel? (see: chapter 5)

At about 1:13 – 1:16 into the (above) video, Gipp LAMELY explains his definition of “Messiah” vs. “Christ”… Sam Gipp says that the word “Messiah” means “deliverer” … but the Bible plainly says—

John 1:41 “He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.”  (in other words, “Messiah” = “Christ”)

John 4:25 “The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.”

At the same church, in Elgin, Ill, IFB Author William Grady, spoke for 50 minutes (promoting his new book, about Israel)… During his 50 minute “book-promoting-sermon”, he made this statement— “It doesn’t even matter whether the Jews WANT Him to save them, …He’s going to do it, anyway…”

(This statement does NOT reflect what Romans 9-11 teaches!)

Listen for yourself…

What’s WRONG with the IFB churches who tolerate this sort of nonsense???


John MacArthur admits the MAIN reason for his clinging to “Dispensationalism”

John MacArthur2John MacArthur3

In certain circles, John MacArthur is revered as an “evangelical” icon. Listen to MacArthur’s own candid confessions (now posted on YouTube/Vimeo/etc.) which reveal the root cause and sole purpose for defending “Dispensationalism”…

“…here’s my dispensationalism, okay? I’ll give it to you in one sentence. There’s a difference between the church and Israel, period. If you understand that, you understand the essence of what I believe is a legitimate Biblical dispensationalism…” ~ John MacArthur

John MacArthur admits that systematic “Dispensationalism” is flawed, and the deeper it goes, the more unBiblical it gets— yet, he admits that he still clings to the theology, due to his allegiance to a “physical Israel”! (listen below)

John MacArthur

John MacArthur says that the Blood of Christ doesn’t save us????

For many, “Dispensationalism” became “fact”, after the advent of “Israel’s return to the Holy Land” in 1948.  No amount of solid Scriptural evidence to the contrary– can seem to sway these sincere, but misguided, people!

David Cloud’s new Ebook concerning “Replacement Theology” – page 75

Author David Cloud likens “Israel’s return” in 1948 to being “as great a miracle as the resurrection from the dead”!!!   (Click Here to read more on David Cloud’s comments on Ezekiel 37)  ————————–>

What About Steven Anderson?

Pastor Matt Furse has been studying Eschatology for over twenty years. A few years ago, he stumbled across a DVD documentary that was about to be released, entitled, “After the Tribulation”. Although Matt did not agree with the entire documentary, he was pleased with the solid emphasis on the King James Bible, as well as the over-all concept and quality of the DVD. It was certainly the first of its kind.

In the summer of 2013, Pastor Furse’s family happened to be vacationing in Arizona, and he made it a point to visit one of the producers of this DVD, Steven Anderson. The Furses attended a Wednesday night church service at the Faithful Word Baptist Church, pastored by Steven Anderson. Afterwards, both pastors visited about their views on end time events, as well as their differences in some of the details. Pastor Furse told Pastor Anderson that, “…the (Pre-Trib; Post Trib) debate will never be resolved until we first answer the question, ‘Who is Israel?’…”  Although they cordially disagreed on some of the details of “Post-Trib, Pre-Wrath”  events, Pastor Furse left, with the feeling that they held a mutual respect concerning the subject of Eschatology & Zionism.

Less than a year later, Pastor Anderson contacted Pastor Furse and asked him if he would like to be interviewed for their new documentary, Marching to Zion”.  Pastor Furse agreed to the interview, and so, he met with the other producer, Paul Wittenberger, and eventually, M2Z”  was produced.

Both Pastor Matt Furse and Pastor Steven Anderson are independent Baptist pastors. The word “independent” means just that— independent.  Neither man answers to the other, nor do they “pastor” each other. They both claim to love the King James Bible, and they both demonstrate a desire to win the lost. It is for certain that they do not agree about everything, and yet— they don’t have to, either! One day, both pastors will have to give an account of themselves, to the Lord (Hebrews 13:17).

Yet, another “Independent Baptist”, itinerant preacher, by the name of Sam Gipp, has tried to refute the “Post-Trib, Pre-Wrath”, end-times theology that both Pastors Furse & Anderson have agreed on.  After M2Z was produced, Gipp made a foolish video of himself (in a nursery setting) attempting to refute the M2Z documentary. In Gipp’s video, one can clearly see that he is using a well-worn Scofield Reference Bible, as his defense.  Sadly, somewhere along the lines of “standing for the Truth”, certain individuals have exchanged the King James Bible for their “pet theology” doctrines and practices (and, in this case, Scofield’s added notes.)  Click here to read more about Pastor Furse’s unfavorable commentary on Sam Gipp.

And now, more recently, another IFB  “itinerant preacher & author”,  David Cloud, has written a booklet about Steven Anderson, in which he refers to Pastor Matt Furse as a “hoodwinked”  Anderson-ite, and “under Anderson’s influence”.  In this Ebook, David Cloud also claims a false critique of Pastor Furse’s book—

“…Matt is the author of Who Is Israel?, which is basically Anderson’s Marching to Zion in print form.”

This is a lie!  Anyone who has read the whole book, Who Is Israel? knows that there is much more content in Furse’s 348 page book, than in the M2Z DVD.  (Not only so, but Anderson & Furse don’t even agree as to whom the “Whore of Babylon” will be—which is a major point in Furse’s book!)  Also in this booklet (supposed to be ‘about Anderson’), David Cloud goes even further in his deception and twisting of Pastor Furse’s own words. Cloud does this by quoting some sensational quotes that Pastor Furse has cited in his book, but Cloud leaves out the original sources (making these sensational quotes read as if they came from Furse, himself— rather than from those cited sources!)  …BEWARE of David Cloud and his “fair research”!   To read of Mr. Cloud’s unbiblical Zionsim, click here

Pastor H. Wayne Williams

An Important Note: David Cloud is wrong to claim that Furse is an “Andersonite”Cloud apparently did not read Pastor Furse’s dedication to Dr. Wayne Williams   — Pastor H. Wayne Williams was Matt Furse’s pastor in high school, as well as his “sending church” pastor when Matt was later ordained into the ministry.  It is Pastor Williams’ influence that led Matt Furse to understand the correct, Biblical view of Eschatology (vs. “Dispensationalism”) — But instead, David Cloud arrives at the erroneous conclusion that Furse is an “Andersonite” — simply because Matt appeared in the M2Z documentary. Yet, never once has Cloud contacted or questioned Furse about any of this. (This is shoddy & deceptive “reporting” to say the least!)  As an “independent” Bible-believer, one must do their own research, rather than lazily letting other men (like Cloud) do it for them!

(Pastor Williams holds an “earned doctorate” for his 101 Thesis, entitled, “God’s Master Plan for the Ages”… however, instead of “Doctor”, he preferred to be called, “Pastor”…  He is now “retired”, but still attends church at Liberty Baptist)

And, interestingly enough, although Sam Gipp and David Cloud are about as far apart in their circles of fellowship & theology as one could possibly get (while still claiming to be “Independent Fundamental Baptists”), they both hold a very high regard for the current, modern state of “Israel”. 

Odd isn’t it?  Both of these men have written & stated negative things about saved, independent Baptist pastors, such as Matt Furse, and they are even willing to separate themselves from “the likes of him”… Yet, they will NOT take a stand against —nor separate themselves from— an unsaved, Christ-rejecting “Israel”???   …Go figure.

Pastor Furse desires to preach the Truth, and he appreciates anyone who will boldly take a stand for the Truth, and say what others will not say.  For far too long, too many, so-called, “Independent Baptists” have done nothing but copy each other’s doctrine, instead of researching the Scriptures, for themselves! For this reason, Pastor Furse was grateful for the M2Z video, that Anderson & Wittenberger had produced. However, since 2013-2014, it has been made known that Pastor Anderson has done and said some things publicly (& over the internet) that Pastor Furse CANNOT agree with… However, this does NOT change Matt Furse’s attitude towards the M2Z video, itself. The general information and argument presented in the Marching to Zion documentary still stands on its own, and it still must be addressed.

As a Bible-believing-Baptist, being “independent” does not mean that one must belong to a denomination of politically correct, “Independent fundamental Baptists”… It simply means that one is independent


Pastor Furse spells “independent” with a lower case, ‘i’… (It’s an adjective, and NOT a Denomination.)

Listen to:  I’m independent ~ by Pastor Matt Furse

“Seed” vs. “Descendants” (is it plural?)

 Who is “Abraham’s Seed”?   To whom belong the promises?

Galatians 3:16 – “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.”

 Does one letter really matter in Scripture? Absolutely! Every “jot and tittle” is inspired and necessary. The Apostle Paul makes a “big deal” of one little letter “s” in the book of Galatians. However, it is interesting to see what the modern versions have done with the doctrine of Paul’s singular “seed” vs. a plural “seeds”. Compare the “seed” vs. “seeds” in the following passages, along with Galatians 3:16(above):

 Should the word “seed” be singular or plural?

The King James Version VS. the Modern Versions

Genesis 12:7 (KJV)

7 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

7 Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the LORD, who had appeared to him. (New KJV)


Genesis 13:14-15 (KJV)

14 ¶ And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: 15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.

 14 ¶ And the LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are-northward, southward, eastward, and westward; 15 “for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. (New KJV)


Genesis 15:17-18 (KJV)

17 ¶ And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. 18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

 17 ¶ And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces. 18 On the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates- (New KJV)


Genesis 17:7 (KJV)

7¶ And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.

 7 ¶ “And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. (New KJV)


Genesis 22:17-18 (KJV)

17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; 18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

17 “blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.  *18 “In your seed [1]  all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” (New KJV)

 [1] *Note: One of the very few times that the “New King James” does not replace “seed” with “descendants”, is in verse 18 of Genesis 22. This is a subtle compromise, as most Dispensational-Zionists wouldn’t care if “seed” was singular in verse 18, as long as verse 17 reads a plural descendants. After twice reading a plural descendants in verse 17, when the reader goes on to verse 18, the brainwashing of “seed” meaning something plural is already complete.

And, in other modern versions the compromise is even worse: New International Version

Genesis 22:17 “…I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, 18 and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.”  (NIV)

 English Standard Version

Geneis 22:17-18 “…I will surely bless you, and I will surely multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven and as the sand that is on the seashore. And your offspring shall possess the gate of his {ESV Footnote:or their”} enemies, 18 and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” (ESV)


Genesis 24:7  (KJV)

7 The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father’s house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.

7 “The LORD God of heaven, who took me from my father’s house and from the land of my family, and who spoke to me and swore to me, saying, ‘To your descendants I give this land,’ He will send His angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. (New KJV)


Did the (SRB) Scofield Reference Bible Notes influence the modern Bible versions?

Are the “thees” and “thous” really that important? Was it really necessary to use “thee” instead of “you” in the old King James Version? Author David W. Daniels makes a very important case for WHY the old King James Bible translators used “thee” and “thou”:

Why Do We Need “Thee” and “Thou”?

In almost every language but modern English, people know whether the speaker is addressing one person or many. In Classical English, if the speaker is talking to one person, he uses “thee” or “thou”. If he is talking to many people, he says “you” or “your”. The King James preserves this. Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Marvel not that I said unto thee (Nicodemus), Ye (all of you people) must be born again.” (John 3:7). Jesus was telling Nicodemus that all people of all times must be born again! A very important doctrine that is lost without “thee” and “thou”.[2]

Noah Webster understood that “thee” meant singular ~ Webster’s original 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language:[3]

[2] The King James Bible Companion – David W. Daniels – Chick Publications, 2000

[3] Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language, Republished in Facsimile Edition by the Foundation for American Christian Education, Rosalie Slater, M.A.;1967, “Thee” & “Thou”

THOU, pron. in the obj. thee. The second personal pronoun, in the singular number…”

THEE, pron. obj. case of thou.”   (bold emphasis mine)

Now, let us examine one of the most misunderstood passages in modern times:

Genesis 12:1-3

“Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

On page 20 of the SRB, Scofield inserts the words, For Abraham and his descendants (emphasis mine) into his notes, below Genesis chapter 12. Although the promise was to Abraham, Scofield includes Abraham’s “descendants” into the promise. Concerning Abraham’s “descendants”, Scofield goes on to add, They became distinctively the heirs of promise…” (emphasis mine) After decades of indoctrination by the notes of the SRB, it is little wonder what influenced the “New King James Version” translators to change the word “seed” to “descendants”, in Scripture passages, as shown previously. And, it is little wonder that devoted dispensationalists, such as David Jeremiah and John MacArthur, have chosen to use the “New King James Version” for their best-selling “study Bibles”.

The Promise was to singular Abraham, and His singular Seed!

“Genesis chapter 12 – v1-3 – God calls Abram, and blesses him with a promise of Christ.” [The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge – RA Torrey]  Hendrickson Publishers, Genesis 12, p7 (R.A. Torrey & Thomas Scott)

 Why did Paul make such a big deal about one small letter “s”?  Because Paul understood that the promise was to the seed — the Lord Jesus Christ! He understood that anyone can be counted as a part of “the seed”, and “the children of promise”, if they are in Christ Jesus” ~

Galatians 3:16 – “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.”

 Galatians 3:26 – “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

 Galatians 3:28 -“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

 Galatians 3:29 – “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

 Galatians 4:5-6 -“To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”

 Galatians 5:1-6 -“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.”

 Galatians 6:15 – “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.”

 2Corinthians 5:17 -“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

 Ephesians 2:13 – “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;”

And so, as one can observe from the examples above, the promise was to singular Abraham, and his singular “seed”. And, NO ONE is counted in the “seed”, unless they are in Christ ~ adapted from  Who is Israel?

True Jewsjewish-porno-chosen-ones

Are these God’s “Chosen People”??

The now infamous, Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood “God” — with whom dozens of women have prostituted themselves, in order to gain “Stardom”— is a Jew— a very powerful Jew. Powerful enough to have had direct access to the Israeli Mossad, and to Presidents/Politicians inside the White House.

What made Harvey Weinstein, “God”? …his money & his powerful connections!

“For the love of money is the root of all evil…” – 1Timothy 6:10 

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” – Ephesians 6:12

How can Bible-believing Christians continue to distinguish the Jews as – “God’s Chosen People”?


Tel Aviv, Israel, was recently voted as the Sodomite capitol of the world!

The pervert & pedophile, Jeffery Epstein, with links to World Leaders—along with his Jewish roots & Mossad connections— are most interesting! (No one believes Epstein committed “suicide”!)

Nobody believes that it was suicide— but it was NOT just another “unfortunate connection” to the Clintons, either— Epstein was connected to very powerful, world leaders—for a REASON…

Why did he die? Search his background, connections, & his loyalties, and you just might find the answer…

Autopsy of an “Epsteined America”  (Kapner)

Gallup Poll 2016 ~

Jews and those with no religious preferences have virtually identical views on the morality of abortion, doctor-assisted suicide, gay-lesbian relations and cloning animals. Jews are somewhat less likely than nonreligious Americans to believe having a baby outside of marriage is moral, 68% to 80%…”

And, here:

Since 1948, abortion has always been a “legal option” for Israeli citizens, and today, virtually ALL of Israel’s abortions are government subsidized!!! (Thus meaning that USA tax-dollars are supporting abortions!!!!)

Without Christ, how can any “flesh & blood” inherit the kingdom of God?

There is only ONE race… the human race!   {see: Acts 17:26}

endless genealogies


“Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.” ~ 1Timothy 1:4 (KJV)

“Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” ~ John 3:7 (KJV)

“For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” ~ Romans 2:28-29 (KJV)


What Exactly is a “Holocaust”??

Are you aware of the Biblical definition of the word, “holocaust”?

Are you aware that a form of the word, “holocaust”, is found in several European translations?

Strong’s #5930 {`olah,  o-law’} = “usually a holocaust (as going up in smoke):–ascent, burnt offering (sacrifice).”

As to the Biblical “burnt offering” and the ‘law of first mention’ in the Scriptures, of the Hebrew word, ‘olah’  {Strong’s #5930} — Consider the following passages —

Genesis 8:20-21 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings {‘olah’} on the altar. 21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. ~ (King James Version)

Genesis 8:20 ¶ Y edificó Noé un altar á Jehová y tomó de todo animal limpio y de toda ave limpia, y ofreció holocausto en el altar. ~ Spanish (Spanish Reina Velera)

Genesis 8:20 ¶ Noé bâtit un autel à l’Éternel; il prit de toutes les bêtes pures et de tous les oiseaux purs, et il offrit des holocaustes sur l’autel. ~ French (Louis Segond French Version -1910)

Genesis 8:20 Edificou Noé um altar ao Senhor; e tomou de todo animal limpo e de toda ave limpa, e ofereceu holocaustos sobre o altar. ~ Portuguese (Portuguese Almeida Atualizada)

Genesis 8:20 ¶ E Noè edificò un altare al Signore; e prese d’ogni specie di animali mondi, e d’ogni specie di uccelli mondi, ed offerse olocausti sopra l’altare. ~ Italian (Italian Giovanni Diodati Bibbia – 1649)

Now, let’s consider the next time & place that this word is used in Scripture — see: Genesis chapter 22

Genesis 22:8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering {‘olah’}: so they went both of them together. (KJV)

Genesis 22:8 Y respondió Abraham: Dios se proveerá de cordero para el holocausto, hijo mío. E iban juntos. ~Spanish (SRV)

Genesis 22:8 Abraham répondit: Mon fils, Dieu se pourvoira lui-même de l’agneau pour l’holocauste. Et ils marchèrent tous deux ensemble. ~ French (LSV-1910)

Genesis 22:8 Respondeu Abraão: Deus proverá para si o cordeiro para o holocausto, meu filho. E os dois iam caminhando juntos. ~ Portuguese (PortAA)

Genesis 22:8 Ed Abrahamo disse: Figliuol mio, Iddio si provvederà d’agnello per l’olocausto. Ed essi se ne andarono amendue insieme. ~ Italian (ItalGDB -1649)

Now, we Bible-believers agree that Jesus Christ was the prophetic “provide[d] lamb for a burnt offering (Genesis 22; Exodus 12:8-10; 1Corinthians. 5:7)… And, as we see (above) in these other translated Bibles (languages of Europe) that the burnt offering” is translated as holocaust”…!!!  

Jesus =’burnt offering’; The Lamb of God is the “holocaust“!

Doesn’t it seem more than just a ‘coincidence’ that a certain group of people (mainly of Europe) would substitute the very term that describes the Sacrifice of the true “Lamb of God”, for their own definition of a “holocaust”?? …Satan is the master counterfeiter, and he has seen fit to remove the Biblical definition of the word “holocaust” = (the “burnt offering” of Christ) from our minds, and he has replaced it with an account that promotes guilt & sympathy for a Christ-rejecting people!

Which “holocaust” is more important? Which one has eternal ramifications?    Now, if a Christian/believer happens to believe incorrectly about some of the facts concerning a “modern day holocaust”— they will still go to heaven.  However, if one is wrong about God’s genuine “holocaust” (Jesus Christ), Who was sacrificed for all of mankind, almost 2,000 years ago, then, that person will go to an eternal hell!

“So there was fire on the altar to burn up that sacrifice. Oh, it surely must mean Jesus bearing our sin, the torments of Hell for it, too.”

“Notice here also that all the pieces of the sacrifice were all burned up. It was not a partial sacrifice that Jesus made. That is why when the passover lamb was sacrificed, it was eaten at only one meal. If there was any left it was burned, because we take Jesus only once as Savior. Only one time we are born of God, and given a new heart and taken into the family, then we are God’s children forever. So, then, Jesus one time and forever paid this whole debt and there need be no more. So it is all burned here.” (page 122-123)

“Christ in the Old Testament” – John R. Rice – {Chapter 3 – “Christ in the Tabernacle, Priesthood, and Offerings”} –  IV. Christ the Burnt-Offering – page 115-124 – Sword of the Lord Publishers, 1969


“Yad Vashem Museum” – main building (notice anything odd?)

When I visited Israel in 2015, we were taken to the Yad Vashem Museum – the ‘Holocaust’ Museum, in Israel (see appendix D of my book)… This museum was obviously designed to be more than just a place to ‘remember the dead’… Its “new age” architecture is full of symbolism— Complete with a “giant altar” made of “uncut” stone, representing the “burnt offering! (see Exodus 20:24-25; Deuteronomy 27:5-6; Joshua 8:30-31)

Israel Trip 2015 171 Israel Trip 2015 166

(As seen in these pictures of their “altar of burnt sacrifice”) The Zionists have literally substituted (replaced) God’s provided “holocaust”, for one of their own!  It is they who deny the “holocaust”— of Christ — our Passover Lamb!

Yad_Vashem_BW_5epa03635672 US President Barack Obama lays a wreath at the Hall of Remembrance during his visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial museum commemorating the six million Jews killed by the Nazis during World War II, on March 22, 2013 in Jerusalem, Israel. EPA/Uriel Sinai

…And, so, comparatively speaking, the modern day “holocaust” is a “decoy” of Satan— when compared to the True “holocaust” of the Lamb of God, in the Scriptures! To afford the Jews their own substitution of Christ for anything else, is the worst form of “anti-Semitism” that one can commit. To appease them with any other substitute, is to damn them to hell.  I refuse to be guilty of “loving them to death”… Like all other people, they too, must be born again” (as their first birth is NOT good enough)… Like all others, they must come to God, through Jesus Christ, alone (John 14:6).

Today, any arguments about the “holocaust” should not focus so much on the details of the “facts vs. fiction of the 1940’s”, as it should be about Satan replacing the Sacrifice (“Holocaust”= burnt offering) of the Biblical Christ of 2,000 years ago, for someone else! (And, to “replace Christ” is “antichrist“!)
