The Answers

Are we misrepresenting biblical verse?
          Many years and great care have been taken to insure correct presentation of biblical verses in this work.  If you have found any misrepresentations of biblical text or improper renderings of biblical translations on this site, we will correct them. We sincerely want to know if we have made a mistake and will welcome the information. We have changed errors in the past when mistakes have been brought to our attention.

The scriptures say "heaven", why do you say sky?
          Contrary to popular belief the word heaven is English and was never used by any of the biblical authors. King James did not have those authors dictate directly to the translators. Insight into how and when this word is used is the key to understanding the true nature of the God of the Bible. For a thorough explanation of this go to Part 2 of the Introduction and scroll down to HEAVEN IS THE SKY.

What's wrong with the King's English.
          The language used in the Bible, the Court English, is a serious problem when trying to determine the true meaning of the original authors words.  From our research we have found King James to be anything but a divinely inspired servant of God.  We believe that this form of English was used not to enlighten the people, but to shroud the true meanings in the haze of a rare and exclusive tongue.  For a more thorough explanation of this go HERE and scroll down to KING JAMES, Inspired by God or Greed?

What makes you think your interpretation is correct?
          We have checked every key word for true meaning in the original language and carefully considered context.  Links to many biblical resources are on the site for checking definition and we check all sites and email challenging our views for any scripture that may prove us in error.  You will find links to those sites that oppose our presentation on this site.  It is an organizational principle that if we are proved wrong we will change our beliefs and our presentation.  If you can present scriptural evidence that proves us wrong, we will change our beliefs.  We do not fear the truth, but we will not accept religious commentary without scriptural backing. And, we do not believe God inspired King James.  If the Christian church believes he was inspired, why don’t they include the Apocryphal books, which he did?  We firmly believe the bulk of mainstream doctrine is based on tradition, not scripture.  And, we also believe the fear of UFOs expressed by the church is without biblical basis and a complete contradiction of scriptural reality.  Bible reference links are  HERE

How can you claim multiple Gods in Bible?
          The concept of multiple gods is taken from only one word, Elohiym.  This is the word used in the first verse of Genesis, is the word almost exclusively used where you see the word God in the Old Testament and it is plural.  The “hiym” when found at the end of any Hebrew word makes that word plural.  The Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance is the most respective work of its kind renders this word thusly: Strong's Ref. # 430  'elohiym, pronounced el-o-heem', plural of 433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:  The singular word for God does not appear until the 22nd chapter of Deuteronomy: Strong's Ref. # 433 'elowahh, pronounced el-o'-ah; rarely (shortened) 'eloahh {el-o'-ah}; a deity or the Deity:  As you see there is a singular word for God, but it is seldom used. The other word used that you thought was Jehovah is Yhovah: Strong's Ref. # 3068, Yhovah, pronounced yeh-ho-vaw', (the) self-Existent or Eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God:  This is the God, the individual being that was the God the prophets dealt directly with.  This God became Jesus and said that he was not the supreme God, but a child of that God.  You know him as the Father.  He is the Supreme God.  Yhovah just created the Earth, the Father, Pater, created Yhovah. There is absolute evidence for at least two gods and clear indications in the Bible that Yhovah is not an only child.

Why are clouds in Bible not just clouds?
          Clouds do not ascend, descend, hover for months, take people into them and allow them to leave, spin, glow, take off at high speeds or destroy entire armies with a single shot.  These are not clouds.

Why do you claim Jesus had short hair?
          The depiction of of Jesus with long hair and a beard is contrary to the social reality of the time and a contradiction of biblical principle in the book.  There is no evidence that Jesus took any vows to any secular order as some assert.  It is a matter of historical reality that the depictions of Jesus changed after the discovery of the Shroud of Turin.  Prior to it's public presentation, all pictures and sculptures of Jesus are of an individual with short hair and no beard.   It is our belief that the orthodox portrayal is no more than a clever and demeaning deception.

What was Ezekiel's wheel?
          Ezekiel was visited by a heavenly body (an angel) in a craft he describes as making a whirring noise and propelled by what he describes as a wheel within a wheel. A careful study of the 1st and 10th Chapters of Ezekiel will show that the craft itself was not shaped like a wheel in a wheel, but some devices attached to the main body are, which is also described separately.
See Eze. 1:26. 10:1.  We personally believe that this was Yhovah, a being called Elohiym that was in charge of this vehicle and communicating with Ezekiel.  HERE

Why do you reject the Trinity?
          The concept of a trinity is traditional, but not biblical.  A quick study of this concept will reveal that the Trinity is, in fact, a tradition that simply gained acceptance in the early history of the orthodox church.  It is not a biblically supported doctrine.  It is the concept of men, not of God.  The Holy Spirit / Ghost seems to be a force rather than an entity and is covered more in depth HERE.

Are there Lost Books?
          Yes, there are at least 600 books that contained biblical accounts of which 73 survived to be translated by King James.  The Catholic Church, starting from the 4th century AD, removed the rest as heresies.  The names of  at least 130 are known and some of these have survived and are available in print.  The most extensive collection is in The Lost Books of the Bible and Forgotten Books of Eden by Rutherford Hayes Platt and J. Alden Brett.  The writings of Enoch and Barnabas are also available and very interesting.  The Mormon Church has done extensive research into the lost books and this research is available, though one should remember this, of course, is a church sponsored project.  Of course, all books relating to "Bible subjects” were and are under the control of the Catholic Church.  There are thousands of peripheral books and documents, but most are dogmatic in content.  This is covered on the site HERE

Why are you criticizing the Bible?
          You will find no criticism of the Bible in this work.  We are not criticizing the Bible, but the king that interpreted it and the churches that use the Bible as a weapon.

Why claim the Burning Bush was a UFO?
          4000 years ago a UFO on the ground could very easily have appeared to be a burning bramble, the proper meaning of the word. How else would someone in that age describe a large artificially glowing object on the ground?  In other places the phrase fire infolding itself is used to describe this phenomenon.  Ezekiel did not see a cloud or a bush, but it was Yhovah and this is his description: Ezekiel 1: 4.  And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire. The word amber properly translated means polished bronze. This was not a burning bush that Moses saw, but it was his way of describing it. 

Why do you claim Jesus was Yhovah?
          Scripture says this, not us:
         
John 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.    And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.    The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.  8   He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.  10  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.  11  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:  13   Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.  14   And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.  15  John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before  me: for he was before me.  16  And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.  17   For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.  18  No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.  This is covered HERE
