    Thanks for these. For #7 many people (including myself) put Left Behind, so I particularly liked how you went back to the source.

  2. Byron says:

    Oh, and for #6, I actually had exactly the same thing written down, but then decided to drop it – trying to be content with the Bible we have…

    Somehow I missed Riplinger on my first read through of your post. If we ever meet in person I can tell you a story . . .

    Gail Riplinger books, videos & audio’s contains multiple errors, lies, the majority of which are the gross misquoting of other people. In particular, a large portion of the misquoting is of the Bible, B.F. Wescott and F.J.A. Hort. See her divorces and marriages info.

    The New Bible Translations are more correct than the old ones and just about everything Gail Riplinger says in her books, videos and audio’s is a Lie. Please Don’t be deceived by Gail Riplinger. Gail is slamming God’s Holy Word in the new translations. For further info on Gail Riplinger please see:
