The Scofield Bible Hoax


Excellent message at Soul Refuge:

In a recent article in Charisma magazine (July 28, 2009), the well known Christian Zionist Pastor John Hagee made the following statement:

“Few Christians recognize that there are five judgments in Scripture. The first has occurred, and four are yet to be.”

That statement regarding the numerous judgments of God is classic CI Scofield which was popularized by his own Scofield Bible. That Bible is one of the first (if not the first) Bible to put the man made notes on the very same page as the scriptures. The problem with that is that many people start believing every thing that is written on the page as if it was the scripture itself..

  1. Hi,

    Great site you have here – very nicely done and easy on the eyes. Thank you for calling attention to the Scofield Bible hoax, I really appreciate you posting that.

    God’s Peace,
    Greg

  2. You’re welcome, and thanks for stopping by Greg…

    Hope you stop by again..

    🙂

  3. That Bible is one of the first (if not the first) Bible to put the man made notes on the very same page as the scriptures

    Geneva Bible, I think, from 1560-something.

    The problem with that is that many people start believing every thing that is written on the page as if it was the scripture itself..

    I accumulate bibles. I mostly look for odd and interesting editions in garage sales. There are organizations that will distribute donated bibles to third world folk without much money, and I’ve been thinking I should divest some of mine.

    Thinking more closely, I wouldn’t want to give any study bible, even one I like and use, for just such a reason. Better to find a sound brief theology or catechism to include.

  4. Reading your blog causes me so much pain …

  5. You probably have already heard about the new Scofield book. It is written by David Lutzweiler and is entitled “The Praise of Folly” – and it would be folly for anyone to think that it is boring or isn’t packed with details about Scofield that had been hidden from the public for several generations! Great read! It is being sold at online bookstores & have a good price. Thanks for your good blog. Julius

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
