(continued from previous page)



            If we look back through 110 years of history, we know that what was written back then has become a reality. The media in the Western World is in the hands of Jewish people and there are few Gentiles in top leadership. It doesn’t matter if we look at television, radio, movie production, newspapers, books, periodicals, etc.; the top leadership are Jewish men and women loyal to their own nationality and religion, including Zionism.

            From the 1950’s, alcohol and drugs destroyed huge parts of each generation of young people in North America, Europe, Australia and Russia. The acceleration came with the hippie movement, which spread to all non-communist nations in the world. Sexual immorality is now the norm for young people, and even in Christian churches, there are few men and women who are virgins when they get married, if they get married at all. 80% of all actors and actresses in the United States are Jewish.

Madonna Britney Spears Paris Hilton

Madonna, the American Jewess which sang the song, “Material Girl,” ruined the lives of teenage girls. Now young girls follow Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and it does not matter where you go in America, you cannot avoid seeing young girls showing their belly buttons, wearing tight jeans, and most of them sport some kind of tattoo or have rings in their noses.         

Vulgarity is spewing out over the radio stations with Howard Stern (right), the American born Jewish shock jock leading the way. Don Imus (left) and other radio talk show hosts go to any length to cuss, belittle and destroy what little morality is left in the nation. Movies and television programs are filled with violence, immorality, vulgar language, sexual perversion with no end to the filth being produced.

            There is a sport for every person living in America. Football, soccer, basketball, ice hockey, horse racing, Nascar, tennis, bowling, gymnastics, figure skating, wrestling, sailing, etc. There is just no end to the list. American are obsessed with sports and have no time for God. They don’t go to church, but the majority worship at the sports arenas, giving their tithes and offerings to their sport gods.

            The Zionist agenda has been fulfilled to a degree that the original members of the 1897 Zionist Congress could only dream about.


Destruction of historical records:

”...Classicism, as also any form of study of ancient history, in which there are more bad than good examples, we shall replace with the study of the programme of the future. We shall erase from the memory of men all facts of previous centuries which are undesirable to us, and leave only those which depict all the errors of the government of the Gentiles…”

            Did this happen? You be the judge.

Destruction of the clergy

            ”...We have long past taken care to discredit the priesthood of the Gentiles, and thereby to ruin their mission on earth which in these days might still be a great hindrance to us. Day by day its influence on the peoples of the world is falling lower. Freedom of conscience has been declared everywhere, so that now only years divide us from the moment of the complete wrecking of that Christian religion: as to other religions we shall have still less difficulty in dealing with them, but it would be premature to speak of this now. We shall set clericalism and clericals into such narrow frames as to make their influence move in retrogressive proportion to its former progress…”

            Did this happen? Ask the Roman Catholic Church as it struggles with the issue of homosexuality among its priests. Look at Jimmy Swaggart, Oral Roberts, Jim Bakker, Ted Haggard and thousands of other fallen preachers.

Destruction of Capital

            “…The tax upon the poor man is a seed of revolution and works to the detriment of the State, which is hunting after the trifling is missing the big. [Editor’s note: Harassing the small taxpayers and leaving the rich people alone.] Quite apart from this, a tax on capitalists diminishes the growth of wealth in private hands in which we have in these days concentrated it as a counterpoise to government strength of the Gentiles – their State finances.

            A tax increasing in a percentage ratio to capital will give much larger revenue than the present individual or property tax, which is useful to us now for the sole reason that it excites trouble and discontent among the Gentiles…”

            Did this happen? In Europe the sales tax is called a “value tax.” First the raw material is taxed. When a product is finished it is taxed again according to the market value as it is sold to a wholesaler. The wholesaler then sells it to a retailer and the tax is now paid on the price the whole seller paid plus his profit on the product. The retailer then adds to the price for the product, so when the customer comes along, he pays even more and tax is collected again. Thus, the State collects sales tax four times, including paying tax on the previous taxes, since that is now incorporated into the price of the product each time it is sold.

            Democrats in the United States have tried over the years to force this value tax on the American people, but so far it has failed. In America we only pay sales tax once on the retail price. Sales taxes in Europe fluctuate from 25% and on down. In California there is no sales tax on food but in Europe they do charge a sales tax on food. However, why is it that when you buy prepared food from a restaurant or deli in California, that food is taxable?

            Federal and State income taxes in the United States are based upon how much a person earns, the more you earn the higher the tax percentage.

            It used to be that there was no Federal Income Tax in the United States. In 1862 President Lincoln and Congress imposed a Federal Income Tax to pay for the Civil War. This tax was repealed by Congress in 1873. In 1894, a different Congress voted to reinstate the income tax, but the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional in 1895. There was no Federal Income Tax until 1913, when Congress once again voted it in, the Supreme Court caved in and declared it constitutional.

We cause depressions

“…The State exchequer [treasury] will have to maintain a definite complement of reserve sums, and all that is collected above that complement must be returned into circulation. [Editor’s note: Depressions have made it possible for us to reduce the currency supply.] On these sums will be organized public works. The initiative in works of this kind, proceeding from State sources, will blind the working class firmly to the interest of the State and those who reign…

…Economic crises have been producer by us for the Gentiles by no other means than the withdrawal of money from circulation. [Editors note: Economic crises have made it possible to take money out of circulation.] Huge capitals have stagnated, withdrawing money from States, which were constantly obliged to apply those same stagnant capitals for loans. These loans burdened the finances of the State with payment of interest and made them the bond slaves of these capitals….The concentration of industry in the hands of capitalists out of the hands of small masters has drained away all juices of the peoples and with them also the States…”

            Did this happen? Prior to 1897, the removal of money from circulation in the United States kept the American people in a perpetual depression from 1865 up to the beginning of World War I in 1914. In 1913, the American Jewish bankers ramrodded through a bill just days before Christmas with many congressmen and senators absent. This legislation established the foundation of the Federal Reserve System, a private corporation consisting of 12 private federal banks. The president signed the bill, which took away the right of the United States to print its own money and transferred it to the Federal Reserve System, which then charged the government interest on the money it printed. From that point on, the control of interest rates and amount of cash in circulation was in the hands of the Federal Reserve System. Since its inception in 1913, most of the chairman’s of this organization have been American Jews.

            The propaganda word is “inflation.” When the Federal Reserve wants to slow down the economy in the United States, raise interest rates, and reduce the amount of money available for the American people, it is always blamed on fighting inflation and the uneducated masses of Americans believe it. Who crashed the housing market in 2006? Now you know the answer.

            After World War I, there were hundreds of thousands of small factories and businesses in the United States. After World War II had ravaged the world, small factories, mom and pop stores and small banks began to disappear. It is hard nowadays to find a small mom and pop store or a local bank because they have all been mostly bought up; merger is the name of the game, business and industry are now in the hands of a few people. Even large corporations like Chrysler and Ford are uncertain if they will survive as individual corporations. Why would someone 100 years ago predict that this was going to happen?

Tyranny of usury (interest)

            “...What also indeed is, in substance, a loan, especially a foreign loan? A loan is – an issue of government bills of exchange containing a percentage obligation commensurate to the sum of the loan capital. If the loan bears a charge of 5 %, then in twenty years the State vainly pays away in interest a sum equal to the loan borrowed, in forty years it is paying a double sum, in sixty – treble [triple], and all the while the debt remains an unpaid debt.   

            ...From this calculation it is obvious that with any form of taxation per head the State is bailing out the last coppers [pennies] of the poor taxpayers in order to settle accounts with wealthy foreigners, from who it has borrowed money instead of collecting these coppers for its own needs without the additional interest.

            ...So long as loans were internal the Gentiles only shuffled their money from the pockets of the poor to those of the rich, but when we bought up the necessary person in order to transfer loans into the external sphere all the wealth of the States flowed into our cash-boxes and all the Gentiles began to pay us the tribute of subjects…”

            Did this happen? The United States has a national debt in the trillions. The whole nation has been mortgaged. Wealthy international Jewish bankers, oil rich families from the Middle East and the Chinese government are holding billions of dollars in their coffers and are also holding U.S. government bonds in the billions. The steel, textile, appliance, clothing, and shoes industries have closed down in the U.S. and moved to Mexico and Asian nations like China. Most items purchased in the United States today are made in China or some other third world nation.


            When Scofield died in May 1921, he had lit a fire that was to sweep the entire world and influence every evangelical Christian denomination. Ultimately it would set the official American policy in the Middle East.

The roaring 20s had begun, and as the unbelievers danced the vulgar and immoral “Charleston” and other ballroom dances like insects around a light bulb in the dark, the Zionists worked like termites in a house, destroying it from underneath and decaying every support upholding the house.

Dispensationalist pastors, evangelists and prophecy teachers thundered in the churches that the return of Jesus was imminent and that it was futile for Christians to be active in the secular society.

Of all the drugs available to man, alcohol is the most destructive of them all. It has made humans drunk from the time of Noah and is the cause of murder, adultery, fornication, crime, etc. The Bible speaks strongly against the destruction caused by the use of liquor, and it was the Christians in the United States who had been awakened in the early 1800s that spearheaded the fight against this vice. By 1840, a strong movement across the United States began to form and for the next 100 years the temperance movement gained power. As the demand for a prohibition of alcohol in the United States picked up more and more steam, the driving force behind it were the following denominations: Methodists, Northern and Southern Baptists, Presbyterians, Christian Disciples, Congregationalists, Quakers and the Scandinavian Lutheran churches. They were opposed by Episcopalians, German Lutherans and the Roman Catholic Church. Billy Sunday, one of the most well-known evangelists at that time railed against “booze,” and since he had nationwide meetings with tens of thousands in attendance at his revival meetings, he had a great impact on this subject.

The 65th Congress met in 1917 and a constitutional ban on the manufacturing and sale of alcoholic beverages was passed and signed into law. It became known as the 18th Amendment, and on January 29, 1919, enough states had ratified it that it was officially adopted by Congress as the 18th Amendment to the Constitution on October 28, 1919. Prohibition went into effect January 16, 1920.

            It did not take long for the effects to show up, crime, divorce and other acts of violence dropped dramatically. The Church of Jesus Christ had demonstrated what could happen if Christians took their faith into everyday living, particularly into politics. The forces of evil were furious, and the alcohol industry relocated to Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean islands. Whiskey barons like the Kennedy family and the Canadian/American Jewish Bronfman family used the Mafia to smuggle in whiskey and beer into the U.S., with violence that was equal to what is seen today in the drug smuggling business.


            Once the 18th Amendment had become law, a ferocious battle began with every demon loosed by the Devil to defeat the ban on alcohol. But now the curse of Scofield kicked in as his dispensational teaching was spreading like cancer into the strongholds of Christianity, and instead of standing up and fighting to keep the victory, Christians abandoned politics and retreated into their churches as they waited for Jesus to come back. Obviously the Devil was pleased and on March 23, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt signed into law the 21st Amendment which repealed the 18th Amendment. From having been a strong national evangelist, the fame and power of Billy Sunday began to fade in the early 1920s, and in 1935 this giant in Christianity went to be with the Lord.

The curse of Scofield led to the removal of the Bible and prayer in American public schools as the Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in 1963 that devotional Bible reading or other government sponsored religious activities in public schools are unconstitutional.

Ten years later the curse of Scofield struck again when the United States Supreme Court ruled on January 22, 1973 that abortion was legal in our nation.

The Church of Jesus was “out to lunch,” waiting for Jesus to come back, and since 1973 more than 40 million unborn children have paid with their lives as they were sucked, torn and strangled to death in what should have been the safest place for them, their mothers’ wombs.


            During the 1920s, evangelical churches concentrated on winning people for Christ, getting them into church and abandoning civic duties. Aimee Semple McPherson (1890-1944), a woman evangelist and former missionary to China settled in Los Angeles and in 1921, she founded the church “Angelus Temple,” from which the Four Square Gospel denomination was birthed. In 1922 she preached her first sermon on radio, this was one form of media the American churches used from the beginning, and by 1924 Angelus Temple had its own radio station in Los Angeles (KFSG). She became well-known internationally but never used her organization and power to influence politics. At the end of her life when the U.S. had entered World War II in 1941, she became active in the war effort and began dealing with secular issues concerning the war effort.

            Let us briefly look at some of the men who were Christian leaders in the late 1920s and during the Depression time in the 1930s:

            We have already discussed Reuben Archer Torrey (right), D.L. Moody’s superintendent for the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. Torrey laid a solid foundation for years to come in evangelism and dispensational teaching. I don’t think that Torrey understood the damage he would do to the church of Jesus Christ in the United States; he had been taken in by the teachings of Scofield and was blinded.

            The following organizations and institutions came out from Moody and were further developed after the death of Moody by Torrey and others:

1.      Moody Memorial Church in Chicago (Torrey was the pastor from 1894-1906)

2.      Moody Bible Institute founded in 1886 by D. L. Moody. 120 years later, the Institute consists of three major ministries: Education, Broadcasting and Publishing.

3.      Moody Publishers was founded in 1894 by the evangelist himself and at that time it was named Bible Institute Colportage Association. In 1941 the name was changed to Moody Press.

            Very few people have understood the historical impact the Moody juggernaut had on the Church and still continues to have on the Church, not only in the United States, but around the world. According to statistics from Moody Press, some 34 million copies of sermons, Bible teaching and doctrinal books have been printed and sold. Around 43 million Gospel tracts have been printed.

            The Moody corporations have used and continue to use radio, movies and Sunday school curriculum to shape generation after generation of young people, not to mention the enormous impact the thousands upon thousands of graduates from the Institute, who became pastors, evangelists, missionaries, music ministers and Christian educators. The current leadership of the Moody juggernaut is moving with the developing technology and producing products on videos, DVDs and extensive use of the Internet.

            God spoke to Moses concerning the creation of the new nation just after the exodus from Egypt. In order to preserve this new nation from generation to generation, there had to be an educational program that was rigid and a required learning program for all young people. (Deut. 6:1-25) This commandment has been preserved in Judaism and it does not matter if Jews live in different nations, the rabbinical system is there to make sure that the young people are raised as Jews. Regardless if the pure doctrine of God as given in the Old Testament has been perverted and additional teachings of the Talmud and the Cabala have been added, the Jews have understood the principle of preserving a culture, and that is the reason for the success of Jewish people, who are found in all nations always holding top positions in the most important institutions of nations, from finances to politics.

            D.L. Moody knew this biblical principle and made sure that his work and teaching would be carried on, and so far, the influence of Moody is still shaping the Christian world more than 108 years after his death. Billy Sunday did not pay attention to this principle, and when he died, his work died with him. Through Scofield, the tares of dispensationalism were sown into Moody’s work, and as a result, Scofield has been riding piggyback on the wonderful work of Moody, bringing the destruction of dispensationalism to our current generation living in 2007.


            This school is a “cousin” to the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago; it was made possible by the Christian businessmen, Lyman Stewart and his brother Milton. Lyman was the co-owner of the Union Oil Company of California, later renamed Unocal and now known as 76, Conoco, and Phillips 66. Lyman financed the foundation of Biola in 1908 with T.C. Horton as its leader. Horton was at that time a well known preacher and Christian writer.

            A year later, the Stewart brothers financed the publishing of the twelve volume series of articles called, “The Fundamentals.” Their purpose was to preserve the Christian faith from being taken over by liberal ministers. Again Scofield got his dirty hands into this massive work and wrote an article on his dispensational teaching mixed tares in with the wheat. R.A. Torrey was heavily involved in this project, and between 1910-1915, thousands of copies were distributed free of charge to pastors and churches in the United States. In 1917, Biola had The Fundamentals republished in a four volume set with the goal to give each minister in English speaking countries a set in order to combat what was known at that time as “modernist theology.” 

            By 1912 the school had grown large enough, that the leadership called R.A. Torrey from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago to come and be Biola’s first dean. He served in that capacity until 1925. By 1915 there were 1,000 students at the school. From 1912 through 1928, Biola was the flagship of conservative Christianity in the United States and produced a magazine called “The King’s Business.” Radio station KTBI became Biola’s powerful voice in the Los Angeles area. “Biola Press” was a publishing house established that printed and sold millions of copies of Christian literature worldwide. Included in this line-up of material were the writings of Aimee Semple McPherson.

            A sister school was established in China called, “The Hunan Bible Institute.”

            By 1929, Lyman had died, Torrey and Horton were retired and William P. White became Biola’s first president.

            In the late 1920’s, two future well-known and influential Christian leaders graduated from Biola, Donald Grey Barnhouse (pastor and author) and Charles Fuller, who later founded the “Fuller Theological Seminary.”

            The Great Depression did much damage to Biola and the school was forced to sell its publishing house and radio station.

            Today Biola is an accredited university and has a huge influence on the Christians in the United States. Prior to 1945, the school offered a four-year college course, leading to degrees in theology, Christian Education and sacred music. In 1945 the School of Missionary Medicine was added. In 1949 the name of the school was changed to “Biola College.”

            As Biola continued to grow, the school campus was moved to La Mirada in 1959, where a 75 acre property had been purchased from Andrew McNally of the Rand McNally Publishing Company. The city of La Mirada was not incorporated until 1960 and the school campus was located in the countryside. The school added the Rosemead Graduate School of Professional Psychology and was moved from Rosemead to the campus in La Mirada. By 1981, the undergraduate programs in psychology at Biola were merged with Rosemead’s graduate programs, and the entire psychology department was now renamed Rosemead School of Psychology.  In 1981 there was a name change again, when the school was renamed and became Biola University.

            The School of Intercultural Studies was founded in 1983, as another college of the Biola University. Talbot Theological Seminary became Talbot School of Theology in 1983. The campus grew to 100 acres, when additional McNally property was purchased in 1988.

            As of 2007, Biola now offers 35 majors, 145 professional fields of study, as well as master, doctoral and professional degrees.

            Biola University has evolved from a simple fundamental Bible based educational institution to a modern educational factory, producing professionals, ministers, and businessmen with a religious belief system fitting the new churches emerging in the world. This belief system is seeker friendly, void of any hardcore Bible preaching on salvation, heaven, hell and a call to holy living.


            This church was started by R.A. Torrey when he was the Dean of Biola, and for several years was housed in a building of Biola in downtown Los Angeles. This church and Biola were intertwined for many years since the president of Biola, Dr. Louis T. Talbot was also the pastor of the church from 1932 to 1948. Dr. J. Vernon McGee was also the pastor of the church from 1949-1970.

            When Torrey founded the Church of the Open Door, it was to be an interdenominational church, strongly anchored in the Scofield dispensational teaching. Instead of being an interdenominational church, it has evolved into a denomination of its own with Open Door churches located all over the United States.


            These four men were all connected to Biola and the Church of the Open Door. They were all to play a part in shaping the Christian landscape in the United States during the remainder of the 20th century.


            Donald was born in Watsonville, California and received his first Bible training at Biola under the teaching of R.A. Torrey from 1913-15. He then attended Princeton Theological Seminary from 1915-1917. As World War I ended in 1918, he became an evangelist and Bible teacher and lived and worked in Belgium and France until 1926. In 1927 he was called to become pastor of the Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a position he held until his death in 1960.

            Dr. Barnhouse began as a strong fundamentalist and was strongly anchored in Scofield’s dispensational teaching. But as time went on, he became more liberal in his doctrine and like Billy Graham; he started to socialize with the leadership of liberal theology as the Presbyterian denomination went from a strong Bible based church to a watered down liberal teaching, denying some of the most basic principles of the New Testament.

            Barnhouse had a strong influence on Christianity in America through a magazine he started in 1931 called “Revelation Magazine,” which in 1950 was renamed “Eternity Magazine.” He also began preaching on the radio in the mid 1920s and produced a regular broadcast called “The Bible Study Hour.”

            His writings were widely used in many denominational seminaries in the nation and thus his thinking and doctrine shaped thousands of pastors to be. 

CHARLES E. FULLER (1887-1968)

            Fuller was born in Los Angeles. In 1910 he graduated from Pomona College, and until his conversion to Christ, he worked in the orange groves in Southern California. After his salvation he spent three years at Biola and was greatly influenced by Torrey.

In 1920, Fuller became the teacher of a Sunday school class of the Placentia Presbyterian Church. (This information is not part of the official biography of Dr. Fuller since he was part of a church split in the Presbyterian Church.) The name of the class was “The Unearthly Hour Bible Class,” and in a short time attendance grew so that the class had to be moved to facilities outside the church. By 1924 the class had become virtually independent of the Presbyterian Church and the church board informed Fuller that the class was no longer part of the church. Some people in the class went back to the church, but the majority did not, and on May 4, 1925, Fuller and the people in the class formed a new church called, Calvary Church of Placentia. Charles Fuller became the first pastor and remained a pastor for this church until 1933.

            Fuller took on some outside activities, and in 1929, he became chairman of the Board of Directors for Biola. During the year of 1930, Fuller started an evangelistic radio outreach which was later named “The Old Fashioned Revival Hour.” This radio program lasted until his death in 1968. While he was the pastor for the church, he was often speaking at different Bible conferences around the nation.

            It is interesting to note that Calvary Church of Placentia at the time of its birth was considered a fundamental Baptist church, but in later years the church joined the Evangelical Free Church denomination which has become very liberal in its theology.

            Fuller developed his radio broadcast into a church service and a Hollywood studio was used for this purpose. It was moved to the Municipal Auditorium in Long Beach, California in 1941, and from then till 1958, the one hour service was broadcast live. Fuller featured gospel quartets, his organist George Broadbent and Rudy Atwood on the piano. The service was moved in 1958 to another Hollywood studio and the program shortened to 30 minutes.

            Fuller wanted to plant an ongoing ministry that would continue after his death, and in 1947 he joined forces with the following individuals:

§         Pastor Harold Ockenga (1905-1985), pastor of Park Street Church in Boston, a Congregational church, the same denomination to which Scofield belonged.

§         Carl F. H. Henry (1903-2003), a theologian, writer, founding member of the National Association of Evangelicals in 1942, editor of Christianity Today in 1956, a magazine founded and funded by Billy Graham.

§         Pastor Wilbur Moorehead Smith

§         Harold Lindsell (1913-1998), a Southern Baptist pastor, seminary professor, Christian writer and editor of Christianity Today 1969-1978.

            Charles Fuller died in 1968 right after he had finished a radio broadcast. The tragedy is that the seminary that bears his name today, is one of the most liberal destructive Christian learning institutions. Pastor Rick Warren, the founder of the Purpose Driven Life, received his doctor’s degree from Fuller and is now wreaking mega destruction among Christians on a worldwide scale.


            I have not been able to find a biography for this man and I cannot explain why this information is not available either on the Internet or encyclopedias. Talbot was President of Biola for two periods, first from 1932-1935 and his second term from 1938-1952. During this time he was also pastor for the Church of the Open Door in Los Angeles. Talbot started a radio program in 1946 which became known as the “Biola Hour.” In 1952 Talbot worked to establish a fully accredited theological seminary at Biola, and once the seminary was established, it was named Talbot School of Theology in honor of Talbot.

Dr. J. VERMON MCGEE (1904-1988)

            Even though this man has been dead since 1988, his voice is still heard on many Christian radio stations, and for a number of years I listened to his programs from time to time. McGee had an impact when he was alive, and even though he is dead, he still continues to influence Christianity in the United States.

            McGee was born in Texas in 1904. He was educated in the South and attended Southwestern University in Tennessee; Columbia Theological Seminary in Georgia; and received two degrees from Dallas Theological seminary. He pastored Presbyterian churches in the South and eventually became the pastor for Lincoln Avenue Presbyterian Church in Pasadena, California. He was called to pastor the Church of the Open Door in Los Angeles in 1949 and remained pastor for this church until 1970. He began preaching on the radio with the program, “High Noon Bible Class.” In 1967 he started his well-known radio program called, “Thru the Bible.” When he retired in 1970 as a pastor, he set up his radio ministry office in Pasadena, California. Together with his board of directors, plans were made for the taping of a five year study plan to go through the whole Bible. So when he was dead, it would continue to run through the five year cycle. How the ministry is financed now is not told by the organization. Currently the program is heard on 100 radio stations in the United States and Canada.
