OF TWO KJV DEFENDERS-
ONE: Gail [ Ludwig Latessa Kaleda ] Riplinger
Gail Riplinger seemed to be useful at first, but after some time, it became clear that her background was NOT scholarly, either in the area of biblical textual issues or in any other area really. The day of Dr. Otis Fuller and even DA Waite is over. Theodore Letis is gone.
Riplinger came into a vacuum and inherited the files of Otis Fuller exposing Westcott and Hort's filthy lives. This was all she really added. Her manner editorially invites the wicked to mock, and with good reason. She uses Dick and Jane word games which serve no serious purpose. She is the darling of the Prophecy Club which accepts all manner of filthy birds into its arena of sensationalism.
DOES RIPLINGER HAVE THE ACADEMIC HERITAGE
TO WRITE ON THE SUBJECT OF BIBLE TEXTUAL ISSUES?
Riplinger's academic background is NOT that of a Bible scholar or language and translation expert.
B.A., (1978) in “Interior Design”
M.A. (1979) in “Home Economics,”
M.F.A. (1983) “Art.”
Honorary doctorate awarded by Hyles Anderson College
There could be no filthier source of a doctorate than from Hyles Anderson. What a sick joke.
We might be well served if Gail Riplinger had done her research and written a book on the design and decoration of the Tabernacle, Solomon's temple, and the New Jerusalem.
She has said she is in an international edition of Who’s Who but she refrains from saying which one. There are several. She was not found in the ones we checked. She states she authored “six college textbooks” (pg. 5 of Which Bible is God’s Word?) but never shares their titles. She was elected to a “membership in a national education honorary” (pg. 5 of Which Bible is God’s Word?), yet she never gives the name of this honorary.
Riplinger's claim as to her teaching positions is highly suspect. READ HERE
THE BEST TIMELINE OF RIPLINGER'S LIFE, ACADEMICS, AND DIVORCES
This makes it very clear that Riplinger met her third husband before she divorced and finally destroyed her second husband. The woman is basically evil. Responsible pastors run off women like this when they come around the local church.
CLAIMS OF DIVINE REVELATION AND ATTACKS ON MEN OF GOD
The most provoking aspect of Gail Riplinger is her attack on David Cloud. I have examined Cloud's response to her, and I have talked with him. He is 100% a defender of the KJV and the TR. He uses odd vocabulary at times because he is overly worried about being associated with Dr. Peter Ruckman. But, Gail Riplinger misrepresented his statements and the translation work he did during his past days as a missionary in Nepal. She tore into Cloud viciously, and that is wicked for a woman who claims to be a child of God.
Riplinger likens herself to Jael. She damns herself on that one. Jael attacked Sisera, not Barak or Deborah. When a woman attacks men, particularly Bible believing pastors, she has entered into battle with the Word of God.
1 Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
Beware of New Age Bible Versions. The new Bible versions are 100% a marketing trick, and the New Age has little or nothing to do with it. I notice that the hounds on the heels of the New Age are mostly women. The promoters of the New Age are also mostly women or queers. Maybe the ladies in the Lord's Church should take their lead from the godly men instead of attacking God's men.
I note that Gail Riplinger got a private letter from David Cloud making a couple of suggestions as to the content of her book. She went straight to press and the Internet and responded publicly. WICKED. Indeed, I must wonder if she is possibly and agent provocateur who has crept in unawares to make asses of God's men and folly of the defense of the King James Bible. I do know that she has inspired much mockery from dark corners where James White and Bob Ross attack the Word of God.
Riplinger seems to claim a divine commission greater than other writers today. In regard to New Age Bible Versions, Riplinger makes this Papal reference to her work:
“Daily, during the six years needed for this investigation, the Lord miraculously brought the needed materials and resources—much like the ravens fed Elijah. Each discovery was not the result of effort on my part, but of the direct hand of God—so much so that I hesitated to even put my name on the book. Consequently, I used G. A. Riplinger—God as author and Riplinger as secretary.”
I to have also done six years of research which was into the origins of Islam. I started out not sure how the story would end. My research took me back from the day of Mohammed in 625 AD all the way back to the Sumerian Empire and the Tower of Babel. God also helped me find all the bridges I needed to build for the book on Islam I published online.
But, I would be a damned fool to claim that the end story was not because of effort on my part. I spent hours in university libraries, hours reading a lot of rubbish to glean out the gems of fact and history, and hundreds of hours compiling and collating the results. My research day stated at 5 AM, included a trip clear across Michigan from west to east, a long day hammering the libraries, and a long trip home. I worked HARD at this, and Satan attacked in many ways.
I had to draw charts for myself to keep the facts in order. My bibliography consisted of over 300 scholarly non-Christian sources, and this resulted in thousands of pages copied from these sources, AND thousands of pages of my notes. I had to talk to Christian experts on the subject, and God had to send along several Middle Eastern Christians to encourage me to finish the work when I felt whipped. For ANY author to claim that, by divine intervention, they received all their research material without "any effort on my part" is a bold faced lie.
I am asked about my research material and notes, and I will sell a no compete one time copy of my research for $15,000. REAL RESEARCH IS WORK, and God knows that, and God likes it that way. Easy come, easy go works great in Las Vegas, but "no effort" research makes for sloppy books, and they abound these days, and they are all end up in Goodwill Industries on sale for 25 Cents.
There is nothing worth writing about that is not the result of hard work. Noah spent 120 years building the ark before he climbed on board and took a cruise ship to Arafat. In fact, this easy come, easy go, research of Riplingers clearly has resulted in much chaos in her books.
Riplinger simply does not have a very organized mind. The politically incorrect conclusion is that she needs to get out of the book writing business, at least where heavy research is involved. This is not because she is a woman. It is because she is not gifted enough, and not serious enough, in writing books which stand up to vigorous scrutiny. Her attacks on her critics is clearly due to her lack of the gifts and self-control to be an excellent writer. Only lazy slop hog Fundamental Baptist preachers can appreciate her work. Defenders of the King James Bible need to be better served, as we were with Otis Fuller and DA Waite.
But, there is something else going on here which is deadly. This claim of miraculous delivery of the facts on the topic by God himself, with no human effort, is exactly the same damnable rubbish we get from Benny Hinn and Kenneth Copeland. They claim they were just standing there in their pajamas one day, and God slammed them with revelation. The implication is, "You better not question this because it was given by revelation by God." And, some of them threaten us with this when we question them.
Gail Riplinger is doing the exact same thing. She is implying that those of us who hold her accountable are defying God himself. She is also implying that, when she attacks David Cloud and DA Waite and other men of God, she is doing so in defense of revelation from God, as in "the direct hand of God." This is madness from a woman claiming to DEFEND the Word of God.
Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
1 Corinthians 6:1 (KJV) Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
The tactics of Gail Riplinger and many KJV Bible defenders remind me of the Mafia and its tactics long ago. They would kill another Sicilian, and then send flowers to his wife and attend the victim's funeral and weep white hot tears of sympathy. The KJV Only Mafia may soon send out hit men to destroy other KJV defenders because they are not lily white pure by the mob's definition. Will Gail Riplinger be leading the attack? The way this can be easily done is to accuse the enemy of some offense against political correctness and inform the IRS on them in order to destroy the victim.
RIPLINGER'S DIVORCES AND PLATONIC INFIDELITY
Gail Riplinger has been married three times. Jesus clearly taught that to remarry after divorce is adultery.
Matthew 19:8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
Check it out in the Greek and Hebrew, KJV, Geneva, as well just about any modern version. Virtually all Bibles out there agree on this one. You, madam, are an adulterer and have no business passing yourself off as a victorious Christian and defender of the Bible. You do not obey the Bible, so we do not trust you. Indeed, there is no reason to believe you are born again based on your vicious attacks on Christian men and believers on the Narrow Way.
Donald A. Waite of “The Bible for Today”, a large supporter of Gail Riplinger, held a King James Bible Conference at Straightway Baptist Church in Princeton, New Jersey, January 10-11, 2008. The conference was broadcast via video on the Internet. During a question-and-answer session, someone emailed a question that asked if it was true that Gail Riplinger is divorced. Waite replied that his wife had recently spoken with Riplinger concerning the information and that Riplinger had denied she was ever divorced, telling Mrs. Waite that she has been “married to the same man for all these years.” Well, yes, since 1984 (24 years ago) she has been “married to the same man.” But that is not what the question had asked. But her further denial seems to confirm the concealment of her past, as well as her awareness that its scandal would cause problems for her if those pastors that trust her knew about it. As of July 22, 2009, Dr. Waite publicly exposed Riplinger at his annual Bible Conference. We commend him highly for doing this. The line should have been drawn at the lies in her books—but now Riplinger is lying about her previous marriages.
SEE THE EVIDENCE OF RIPLINGERS THREE DIVORCES AND MARRIAGES HERE
The fact that Riplinger made a friendship with her third husband before divorcing her second husband is evidence of her infidelity to husband number two. This is known in the adultery trade as "a Platonic friendship," and IT IS ADULTERY.

This woman seems to crave warfare in court, as well as destroying fellow Christians financially.
ARTICLE BY BARB AHO ON THE USE OF PAGAN MEN AND KABALIST SOURCES
This is a massive study on Riplinger's book In Awe of the Word. Riplinger's references to pagan Jewish and ungodly wretched scholars, men who are Kabalists, is very frightening. I have to assume that Riplinger is either dumb as a rock, or she is a devil possessed agent of destruction of Christians. This is done by teaching from Satanic sources, and it is also done by turning saints against saints. Any pastor who quotes her works needs to be soundly rebuked.

RIPLINGER ENTERS "OUTSIDE OPINION" BEFORE THE COURT WHICH TRIED JACK SCHAAP FOR SEXUAL OFFENSES AGAINST AN UNDERAGE GIRL.
While we have no sympathy with Schaap, this article shows how Riplinger seems to feel an urge to launch crusades to destroy men. The case was really none of her business.
GAIL RIPLINGER WITH JAIL BIRD TAX CRIMINAL KENT HOVIND
Listen close, and you will catch Riplinger grossly exaggerating her skills and abilities.
Gail Riplinger visited Dr. Peter Ruckman and asked for his thoughts on her first book New Age Bible Versions. Dr. Ruckman liked the book, but he advised her not to use him as a reference because it would reduce the sales of her book. This is why Riplinger never has, to my knowledge, boasted of Ruckman's endorsement. Her error of claiming that the King James Bible corrects the Greek of the Bible is exactly what Ruckman also teaches. Both Ruckman and Riplinger do NOT believe that the Greek texts could have possibly been preserved as the Word of God. To claim that the Greek and Hebrew were divinely preserved, and then to claim that the King James Bible "corrects" the Greek, is blasphemy. But worse, it shows that a sick irrational mind is at work. The claim is a total contradiction since the English was translated from the Greek.
The above information was from an inside contact.
Finally, it is very clear that Gail Riplinger thrives on ad hominem attacks. This is because those who question her among Fundamental Baptists are using logic and sound exegesis and historic facts, and all Riplinger has left with which to do battle is personal attacks on those who question her. We must conclude that because she is not chastened by God for this, she can be classified under the category of Hebrews 12:8:
Hebrews 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Proverbs 14:15 The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
Reading Riplinger's books may very well result in your becoming oppressed or possessed of devils. BEWARE
Gail Riplinger is clearly the closest thing to a Feminazi which is found in Fundamental Baptist circles. She loves to go to war with pastors. The lady is a congenital liar in the model of 90% of all Fundamental Baptist pastors. While man to man battle for the faith is in order, a woman against man battle is wicked. We need no Joan of Arc in the Lord's Church.
My own experience with Gail Riplinger's book New Age Bible Versions was probably typical. At first, I thought I was being served well. A born again Christian wants to serve people. As I read further, I realized I was being deceived and confused. The word tricks were childish, and I am not a child. The logic was the sort used by propagandists, and I was being fed a line of cheap greasy bologna. So, I never finished the book. I became enraged at the author for wasting my time and money on such drivel.
Serve, or get out of the Lord's Church.
TWO: "Dr." Sam Gipp
Sam is very provoked if anyone refers to him without adding the "Doctor." When did Jesus demand titles? The only time he commends the disciples for calling him Master was after he washed their feet. Sam, baby, try to earn your doctorate THAT way please.
John 13:13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
SAM GIPP'S ALLEGED "DOCTORATE"
"From what I've heard, Sam the Gipper's "degrees" come from Pensacola Bible Institute and Clarksville School of Theology. The former is Dr. Peter Ruckman's church based [Bible institute], and the latter is a defunct degree mill in Tennessee. His Doctorate is highly suspect." From a forum online
The correspondence school that gave Sam his Doctorate was closed down by CAESAR for not meeting CAESAR'S CRITERIA. The school later reopened in North Carolina, having met that state's accreditation requirements. It remains a mail order seminary.
Sam Gipp has turned his mail order doctorate into a Ph.D. This is typical of mail order gurus. They crave exaltation, and when they don't get enough of it, they exalt themselves.
HERE IS A VIDEO DISCUSSING GIPP'S LETTER TO STEVEN ANDERSON
Gipp is clearly either lazy or a fourth grade imbecile. It is no blessing to have him as fellowship in the defense of the King James Bible.
DISCLAIMER: Many of the teachings of Steven Anderson are repulsive and evil. But, a diligent man does not send heretics rubbish talk and grammar bombs under the assumption that we do not need to do our best at letter writing to our enemies. In fact, he had to KNOW that Anderson would use his letter in some negative manner. To send all those typos and grammar errors is the height of arrogance. It is NOT Ph.D. behavior. For my part, when I respond to an email attack, I proof read my response twice. I know that ANY errors in syntax or spelling will be used to damn me.
Question: Did Jesus, Peter, John, or Mark have degrees, and did they demand being given academically approved titles? I have been told that Sam Gipp gently reminds people to address him as "Doctor." The only Bible writers who were likely titled were the Apostle Paul and Luke. Luke was a physician, and Paul was educated and approved by the Pharisees as a member of that group. What did Paul have to say about his academic distinctions? Philippians 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
SAM GIPP THE HERETIC
Sam has made the following statement. It is so heretical that we must disclaim his works here:
"There is one man between your family and Hell, and that man is your pastor."
The above statement was made during a sermon he preached in a church and was reported to us by a friend who was there at the time.
Here is what the Bible says. Sam and Paul cannot both be right:
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Some reader may whine that Sam's passing remark, probably trying to salvage some diddle head preacher who was falling from grace in his church. In fact, every word we speak is accountable, so the off the cuff remarks count just as much as our most pondered and measured words in writing, for this reason:
Matthew 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
HERE IS WHERE GIPP CLAIMS JESUS IS NOT THE MESSIAH OF THE GENTILES
The pathetic thing here is that Gipp claims to be an expert in the Greek New Testament. The word Messiah is translated "Christ" in Greek and English (John 1:41). Gipp has to know this, but he needs to be clever and rock the boat, so he comes along with this nonsense about Jesus not being the Messiah of the Gentiles. And, in the coming Kingdom or Messiah, what does Gipp imagine the Gentiles will call Jesus?
ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW GIPP THINKS DEGRADED ETHICS ARE OK WITH OUR ENEMIES
DISCLAIMER: James White is a Bible mutilator and spends a lot of time baiting and attacking King James Only believers. But, while White is an enemy, this does not justify us in lying about him.
SAM GIPP'S ARROGANCE
The best I can say for Sam is that he has a smart mouthed attitude of a guru who thinks he is a god. The worst is also possible, and that is that Sam Gipp is possessed of devils and willing to lead the sheep astray for Satan, or he may be an agent provocateur planted in Fundamentalism by the Jesuits to do harm to the truth.
SAM GIPP SAYS THAT RUSSIANS MUST LEARN ENGLISH TO READ THE RIGHT BIBLE
The implication is that God CANNOT deliver the Word of God in a preserved manner to non-English speakers elsewhere in the world. This is the Pope factor in Gipp who feels free to slap God down and put him in the Ruckman approved box. DISCLAIMER- Dr. James White is not reliable in many other of his teachings. This is here to show the ethics of Gipp who believes the cause justifies the ethics used. This is Jesuit Casuistry at its worst.
AN ANSWER TO SAM GIPP'S MONGREL AMERICAN PATRIOTISM
Sam knows that thousands of Fundamental Baptist pastors, usually men with grievous personal sin issues, respond well to American patriotism. It is a refuge for Christians who do not want to deal with sin in their own lives. This article deals with the myth of America being founded as a "Christian nation". Jesus did NOT die for nations. He died for people who get saved one by one, not nation by nation.
SAM ON THE GREEK NEW TESTAMENT
We have no need of the originals, even if they were available. (“The Answer Book”)
This implies that we do not need the Greek at all, and that is the common claim by many King James Version only people. The question arises, did the King James translators need the Greek in 1600? Without Greek texts they would have had to be given the English Bible by inspiration all over again ex nihilo.
What is really being promoted is that pastors who read the Greek or check lexicons during their sermon preparation are wicked. Ironically, Dr. Ruckman himself mentioned Greek grammar facts during his sermons. What seems to become clear with Gipp's ranting is that he does not read or study the Greek New Testament because he does not know it. Thus, he needs to keep the playing field level, and he condemns anyone who studies a Greek text, even the Textus Receptus.
SAM GIPP'S PROPHECY TEACHING IS FOR THE BIRDS
"America's Future - The symbol of America is an Eagle. No, I don't care what someone else convinced you of from the Bible, it has always been an Eagle and no other animal. Now look at what happens in the middle of the Tribulation when the Antichrist is about to destroy Israel, "And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent." (Rev. 12:14 )
"The United States is going to rescue Israel from the Antichrist in the Tribulation. What? You say, "Can't happen." Prove it from Scripture! You can't! Unless you've already sold yourself to hate America and therefore will allow anyone to twist any Scripture to condemn this nation. Now try thinking! If America is going to rescue Israel then that explains why the Devil wants to destroy America so badly now. So it won't be there to save Israel. But wait! There is a horrible truth here. Every Christian who has been condemning America, hoping for her destruction, not fighting for America, not voting, has been helping the DEVIL'S cause!"
It is a servant of the Devil who accuses the brethren of helping Satan because they do not feel they can conscientiously vote for either candidate. To judge the saints in the manner of Sam Gipp is Roman Catholic in manner. To accuse a Christian who refuses to join the US Military, because the wars now fought have nothing to do with a threat to America..... this is damnable heresy on Sam's part.
He tells us the eagle is the USA above, and he mocks us who say it is NOT the USA. Sam really must think he is the Bismarck or the Kaiser. He makes the rules, gives the interpretation, and we must shut up and bow before his majestic Doctoral immanence. BAH!
The really wicked part is that Sam "the scam" assumes the FACT of the eagle / USA interpretation, and on his own assumption then builds a case for damning anyone who questions America. This is fact built on sinking sand. Sam has NO biblical proof that America is the eagle, or any entity, in Bible prophecy-- only his bombast carries the argument. Well, bombast is all Adolph Hitler relied on to build the Third Reich in the early days of his rule. Bombast alone is Satanic logic when used to sway the mind of the saints for or against anything.
....We are not ignorant of his devices.
For the record, here are the nations of the world who have the eagle as a national symbol:
Armenia, Austria, the Czech Republic, Egypt, Germany, Ghana, Iceland, Indonesia, Iraq, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, Navarre/Basque Kingdom, Palestine, Panama, Ancient Rome, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Syria, Yemen, and Zambia
Several of those nations are either in the Middle East or are mentioned in Bible prophecy. The USA is NOT anywhere in Bible prophecy. By the time the final end game of Bible prophecy really begins, the USA will undoubtedly be totally Balkanized and in abject disarray. There is no way God is going to allow America to claim the credit for fulfillment of prophecy in the Middle East.
Beware of blow hard "Doctors".

FROM A READER REGARDING SAM GIPP- Unedited
Considering one of your current articles, I thought you might be interested in this. Some time ago I was searching for Bibles from a church organization called Bearing Precious Seed and found that some reviewers had added their opinion of one of the churches who were members of this group. One of the reviewers mentioned how Sam Gipp had gotten violent with him (both physically and verbally). I will simply quote his text.
"The only author , I would warn against is Mr.Gipp, I meet him at so-called Camp Meeting in Southern Maryland back in the late 1980's.( I was trying to tell him about this fake church in Milford, Ohio who was printing fake KING JAMES BIBLES. Mr.Charles Keen was behind this. I talked to Mr.Charles Keen myself while my friend was tape recording our talk. To get to point I told Mr.Keen, that I knew about how you are changing the King James Bible and what verses too. He told me he knew about it too. But it would cost to much money to make new plates for printing it.)
So I told Mr.Gipp the same story and I thought he would have my back because we had gone P.B.I. which is Dr.Peter S. Ruckman's School in Fla. But years a parts and I quit after I seen things were wrong there.
So back to Mr.Sam Gipp at first he tried to justified the changes and then tried to destroy my faith in the OKJB. When that didn't work he started to throw punches with his fist. I moved out of the way and he missed me. Back then I still believed it was wrong for Christians to fight. My views have changed over the years.Today if that happened to me I would of beat him with a metal baseball bat !!! I still have the tape of my talk with Mr.Keen."
Editor- Steve Van Nattan:
This is how Sam Gipp affects people, and this is a case, again, of the violence now found in some Fundamental Baptist preachers. This sort of thing is not persecution, so feel free to plaster such creeps if they take a swing at you.
As to Charles Keen's response that the printing plates could not be done over again, I am reminded of something that happened with Jack Chick of Chick Publications.
Jack was following the research I was doing in the 1990s into the origins of Islam. At one point I concluded that Allah was absolutely not an alternate name of the God of the Bible. That seems obvious now, but in the past men of God were not sure, or at least could not prove it. My research, starting from the ancient kingdom of Sumer 4000 BC up to Mohammed in 625 AD showed that there was NO relationship between the names for the God of the Bible and Allah.
I had a call from two Egyptian evangelists who heard about my research. They were very troubled in that they assumed Allah was a sort of generic name for God in Arabic. I told them I could not back down on my research findings.
The two Egyptian evangelists then went to the Middle East on a speaking tour, and later they reported that all over the Middle East true Bible believing Arabs were rejecting the name Allah for the God of the Bible. They emphatically pressed me to publish my findings, and my book on Islam is the result. They also told Jack Chick that my findings were correct, and Allah must never again be used for the name of the God of the Bible.
Here is the punch line. Jack Chick had just done a large first run of a tract on Islam, and he had used the name Allah for God. He ordered his men to through the whole load of tracks in the dumpster and start over. That had to mean a large financial loss, but Jack did not give the answer of Pastor Charles Keen. And, this means there are now Bibles in circulation which have errors and word changes, and they cannot be called back. Have these men no fear of God?
Sam Gipp's defense of Charles Keen is classic Baptist Mafia behavior. Fundamental Baptist men cover for each other regardless of how evil or disgusting the issue in another pastor. This is beyond tolerable. Defending a man who has mutilated the Bible is intensely wicked.
Gail Riplinger and Sam Gipp illustrate something I have pondered much lately. We who are Narrow Way Bible believers must be bold in speaking the Truth and declaring the Word of God. We must indeed defend the King James Bible, and we must give no quarter to Bible mutilators. We need to sound off against wickedness wherever we find it. The problem is, we sometimes seem to get a case of diarrhea of the mouth in the process.
I have heard many Fundamental Baptist preachers, and almost all Charismatic preachers, blowing off with both witty and wicked comments, accusations, and personal exaltations which are downright disgusting. I have done this myself, and I hate myself for it.
Here is the punch line If you cannot keep your mouth under control, and if you cannot avoid occasional profane speech when you preach....... SLOW DOWN.
Get yourself under control or go sell insurance, sir.
Your reputation as a loud mouthed raging and fearless warrior for Christ should not result in your mouth hurting other people or leaving them with profane thoughts as they leave to go home. Furthermore, children and youth are listening, and they will get the idea that your out-of-control manners are commendable. You leave their Daddy with the task of trying to convince them otherwise.
Dr. Peter S. Ruckman, under whose teaching Sam Gipp sat, was a man whose mouth went south over and over. It seems that he wanted to shock and get a reaction.
This is exactly what I believe is going on with Riplinger and Gipp. They want to be the center of attention, so they make large bold statements and claims. Sam seemed to lose the spirit of Ruckman to make sure the boldness was founded in correct biblical doctrine. Some of these Gipp/Riplinger declarations are a lot of rubbish, but they refuse to go back and clean up the mess they made. That is why I did this article to hold their feet to the fire.
YOU WILL BE JUDGED BY YOUR WORDS, FOLKS
Jesus is speaking...........
Matthew 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
David speaks of himself...........
Psalms 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
The Preacher of Israel says...........
Ecclesiastes 5:1 Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.
2 Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
3 For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words.
Solomon leads the way............
Proverbs 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
12 As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
Are you a wise reprover, or are you a jabberwocky jerk?
Do you give us apples of gold, or do you hand out rotten potatoes?
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird,
and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!"
Dr. Frumious Bandersnatch Ph.D., that is.
