Isn’t it astounding how the notes included within the Scofield Reference Bible have become ingrained within our beliefs? Many Christians, especially in the west, look upon them as ‘inspired’ writings, quoting his notes (teachings) as though they hold equal weight with God-inspired scripture. Granted, most do not realize they are even doing this. It’s just my personal opinion, based on experience, that we quote and believe teachings based upon his notes without realizing they were one man’s beliefs, and not necessarily what the bible says. We hear it for years–sometimes for an entire lifetime, from pulpits out of the mouths of Godly pastors and preachers (who in turn, heard it all their lives from their pastors, preachers, and teachers, and so on), and we never question if its really biblical. It’s hard to conceive that one man, in this case C.I. Scofield, could completely change a nations entire theology–but he certainly did, with his personal interpretations of Holy Writ.
