Who wrote the Bible that you are reading?
I have just finished reading a fantastic book by G.A. Riplinger entitled, “New Age Bible Versions.” Among other things, it details who the writers were of the Greek Text used to translate the NIV, NASB, NKJV, NRSV, NAB, REB, RSV, CEV, TEV, GNB LIVING, PHILLIPS, NEW JERUSALEM, and NEW CENTURY versions of the Bible. If you own one of these, you probably bought them because they supposedly come from the most ancient manuscripts and they are more accurate and authentic than the old standard King James Version of the Bible. WRONG!!!!! If you are reading one of these versions, it is a compilation of the work of Satan, Demons, drunks, necromancers, channelers, ghost followers, Nazi staff members, Lucifer worshipers, Plato, Origin, Philo, and many other NEW AGE (demon inspired) thinkers who want nothing more than to bring in a One World Government under a New World Order, with the Anti-Christ as the ruler of the world, and Marxism as the world political system. What angers me the most is that supposedly God fearing ministers of the Gospel have, like the Pied Piper, led their congregations by a passive attitude that will open up the door to the religion of the Anti-Christ one day.
I just wrote an email to a good friend of mine, a minister, who sent me an email with a quote from one of these OCCULT translations of the bible. He is a good man and a soul-winner. I then realized that the Bible is true when it says that in the last days deceivers will come that will deceive, “if it were possible,” the very elect. I then knew that it is happening right before our very eyes. People purchase Bibles thinking that there are godly men that have made these new translations with much care along with prayer and that they are delivering what is the most accurate copy of the Word of God in existence today. THAT IS NOT THE CASE. Since the book that I cited above gives more evidence than I can possibly give here, I want to tell you about the men that did the translations of the revised Greek text and some of their friends and acquaintances. Once you have read this, if you can continue using one of these OCCULT versions of the Bible, God help your soul.
The two main perpetrators of the crime of mutilating the Word of God are Brooke Foss Westcott and Fenton John Anthony Hort who lived in the 1880’s and their work has caused a virtual death blow to the pure Word of God. John R. Kohlenberger of Zondervan which published the NASB, Living Bible, Amplified Bible, NIV, and RSV said that all versions that have come after the King James Version from the RSV to the present versions have come from the text that was developed by these two snakes who feign themselves translators of the pure Word of God. Wilbur Pickering, author of The Identity of the New Testament Text states, “…..The W-H critical theory is erroneous at every point…” What about these wannabe translators and destroyers of the Word of God?
Westcott went to Cambridge in England as an undergraduate. While there he organized a club called “Hermes.” The name Hermes is defined as “…the god of magic…and occult wisdom, the conductor of Souls to Hades,…Lord of Death…cunning and trickery.” (Riplinger’s book) There is a legend that witches made the sign of the cross upside down and this all started with worshipers of Hermes. One of their contemporaries, H.P. Blavatsky who wrote Secret Doctrine, and also a worshiper of Lucifer identified Hermes with Satan. She quotes:
Satan or Hermes are all one…He is called the Dragon of Wisdom…the serpent…identical with the god Hermes…inventor of the first initiation of men into magic…the author of serpent worship.
This Lucifer worshiper, a woman, had a logo of a serpent biting his tail, the symbol of Hermes. The writer of a book called, Occult Underground, states that Hermes is the entry point of scholars and philosophers into the OCCULT. Westcott, who, with his friend Hort, translated the Greek Text that has been used for all modern translations of the Bible, met with his Hermes Club every week from 1845 to 1848 discussing a variety of subjects, some of which had to do with mythology and heathen philosophy. Today the School of Hermes is listed as a NEW AGE organization in a New Age network magazine. These New Agers along with Blavatsky, the Lucifer worshiper, call Christ of the New Age by the name of Hermes who is really Lucifer or Satan.
Some modern day New Age Thinkers like Sharon Gless trace the recent interest in “channeling,” as do history books, back to one origin, Westcott and Hort. You may ask, do you mean that the same men that have produced the Greek Text that is being used to translate the Bible to modern day English are also the same men that led the way for people to engage with talking to demon spirits? The answer is YES. Not only did Westcott start his Hermes Club, but both Westcott and Hort got deep into spiritualism (demons) and organized a society called the Ghostly Guild. It was while they were engaging in this psychic activity and receiving the “doctrines of devils” spoken of in the Bible in I Timothy 4:1 that Westcott and Hort contrived their corrupt Greek Text with all the occult background of their sinister lives. Philip Schaff who was on the Greek Text committee with Westcott and Hort helped foster an occult revival with much of the markings of H.P Blavataky, the Lucifer worshiping Satanist who lived in the same period of history. The fathers of the modern channeling movement were Westcott and Hort and the mothers were the Fox sisters and H.P. Blavatsky. James Web states:
Ghost Society [was] founded by no less a person than Edward White Benson, the future bishop of Canterbury. As A.C. Benson writes in his father’s biography, the Archbishop was always more interested in psychic phenomena than he cared to admit. Two members of the Ghost Club became Bishops [Benson and Westcott] and one Professor of Divinity [Hort]. At the same time that they were speaking to demon ghosts, Hort stated that the King James Bible was “VILLAINOUS.”
Hort’s son states as follows:
Hort seems to have been the moving spirit of … ‘the Bogie Club’, as scoffers called it, [it] aroused a certain amount of derision and even some alarm; it was apparently born too soon.
At the same time as they were seeking the “doctrines of devils” Hort was referring to evangelical Christians as “dangerous,” “perverted,” “unsound” and “confused.” In their ghostly paper, Westcott states:
But there are many others who believe it possible that beings of the unseen world may manifest themselves to us…Many of the stories current in tradition or scattered up and down in books, may be exactly true…”
In an index of The Founders of Psychical Research we find the company with which Westcott and Hort were associated:
Automatic Writing, Benson, Biblical Criticism, Mme H.P. Blavatsky, Clairvoyance, ‘Control’ Spirit, Crystalgazing, Charles Darwin, Sigmond Freud, Ghost Club, F.J.A. Hort, Hypnotism, ‘Inspirational’ writing and speaking in early British spiritualism, C.J. Jung, Levitation, J.B. Lightfoot, Mediumship, Mesmerism, Multiple Personality, Plato, Society for Psychical Research, Spiritualism, Swedenborne Society, Synthetic Society, Telepathy, Trance Medium, B.F. Westcott.
Next, history goes on to record that Westcott and Hort were involved in the Society for Psychical Research (S.P.R) which, along with H.P. Blataky and her books, Isis Unveiled, and The Secret Doctrine did much to lay the foundation for our modern NEW AGE belief system. These men that created a Greek Text from which all modern Bible copies have been written were heavily involved in the OCCULT. Does this sound like a reliable source for your NIV or other modern day translation of the Bible? This S.P.R., it is reported, was favorable to theosophy [Lucifer Worship].
There is so much more that space can hardly do it justice. All of the quotes in this article come from R.A. Riplinger’s book sited at the beginning of this article. Other associations of these “Ghostly Guild” Bible translators are the Eranus Club, the Counsel of Twelve, the New World Order, reading “Goblin Stories” at Christmas, practicing meditation, and even concocting a New Testament Scheme for corrupting the Word of God. Here is how they put their plan to create a corrupt Greek Text that will alter the Bible as we know it:
[S]rike blindly… much evil would result from the public discussion…I have a sort of craving that our text should be cast upon the world before we deal with matters likely to brand us with suspicion. I mean, a text, issued by men already known for what will undoubtedly be treated as dangerous heresy will have great difficulty finding its way to regions which it might otherwise hope to reach, and which it would be banished by subsequent alarms…If only we speak our minds, we shall not be able to avoid giving grave offense to…the miscalled orthodoxy of the day…Evangelicals seem to me perverted…There are, I fear still more serious differences between us on the subject of authority and especially the authority of the bible…At present very many orthodox but rational men are being unawares acted upon by influences which will assuredly bear good fruit in due time of the process is allowed to go on quietly; but fear that a premature crises will frighten back many into the merest traditionalism.
Did you read what he said? They purposely created a demon inspired text for the Greek that they planned to have out around the world to take the world by deception and craft. Not only did they consort with demons and Lucifer worshipers, but they were known to be sipping the bottle in order to get their jollies while purposely corrupting the Word of God. It is said that J.B. Philips, one of their colleagues daily made angry statements against fundamentalists by calling them “perferid,” “firebreathing” “asses.” They hated fundamentalists. Hort, in writing to a contemporary named Lightfoot states:
But why did you send beer (Trinity Ale) instead of coming yourself…Dr. Tregelles…found in the possession of the Bible Society some extremely important palimpsest [New Testament Greek manuscripts which have been erased and written over] of the first eleven chapters of St. Luke…”
One of their group admitted to being a drunk and became a spokesman for a brewery. They literally would “nip and snip” while working on their “scheme” of trashing the Bible for coming generations. It is said that the New Greek Text in the Book of Luke and the 1000 verses of the book shows 1000 changes. In fact their entire New Testament text shows 6000 places where their “spirits” changed the original Greek and it had nothing to do with making the Bible more accurate. One of the prominent Greek scholars of the day, John Burgon, Dean of Westminister at the time said this of their lack of scholarship:
For the Greek Text which they have invented proves to be hopelessly depraved throughout…[I]t was deliberately invented…[T]he underlying Greek…is an entirely new thing, is a manufactured article throughout…[T]he new Greek Text…is utterly inadmissible…Proposing to inquire into the merits of the recent revision of the Bible, we speedily became aware that…the underlying Greek Text had been completely refashioned throughout. It was not so much a [new version] as a ‘New Greek Text’. The New Greek Text…was full of errors from beginning to end: had been constructed throughout…[I]t was no part of your instructions to invent a new Greek Text, or indeed to meddle with the original Greek at all…[B]y your own confession–you and your colleagues knew yourselves to be incompetent. Shame on…[those] most incompetent men who–finding themselves in an evil hour occupied themselves…with falsifying the inspired Greek Text…Who will venture to predict the amount of mischief which must follow, if the ‘new’ Greek Text…should become used.
We see this happening today by the sheer volume of new translations printed and the use of these corrupt versions coming from the pulpits of a majority of churches today. There is a sinister genealogy in the influences of these demon inspired writers. It goes from Plato who followed the mind of a demon to Clement and Origen, the school of Alexandrian thought along with Constantine and Philo who was a favorite read for both Blavatsky and Hort. The sad thing about all of this is that the Heretic of the early days of Christianity that left corrupt texts in the trash of Alexandria is now the hero of the Westcot and Hort new corrupt Greek Text. One telling sign of why the newly found “Older” manuscripts of Siniaticus and Vaticanus were found less worn than newer copied manuscripts is that those that were accepted as authentic Bible texts were read more often and when they were copied they were replaced by the new copies and the old worn copies were destroyed. Yet we have drunken, satanic, demon influenced, Ghostly Guild necromancers creating a text that is not from the original with the sinister intent that in generations to come their work may pollute the Scriptures to the extent that a NEW WORLD ORDER will be brought in with an OCCULT BIBLE that fits the age of THE ONE – Anti-Christ. It is totally beyond me why any Bible believing Christian would want to read or preach out of these OCCULT versions of the bible.
What is most telling is a peak at the private thoughts of these villains of Biblical corruption which should drive any wise minded Christian back to the only true copy of the Bible that we have in the modern day, the King James Bible (KJV).

Now what to you say about your NIV, NASB, NKJV, NRSV, NAB, REB, RSV, CEV, TEV, GNB LIVING, PHILLIPS, NEW JERUSALEM, and NEW CENTURY versions of the Bible? What a fool you are to have been mesmerized by the evil demon spirits that have caused you to swoon while the Word of God has been removed and you are reading just what these Satanic, demonic necromancing drunks and occult promoters who not only corrupted the Word of God but they also fostered the NEW AGE MOVEMENT that will eventually lead to the New World Order of the Anti-Christ. And to think that it was just as the Bible says, Matthew 24:24-28 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (25) Behold, I have told you before. (26) Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. (27) For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (28) For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
It is time for us to wake up, Judgment day is coming and we need to be reading the HOLY WORD OF GOD, not what Satan, Demons, necromancers, drunks, occult and Bible Translators have created for the NEW AGE LEADER, Lucifer and the Anti-Christ.
