TARES AMONG THE WHEAT

 "I have now watched your excellent 'Tares Among the Wheat' film four times.  I am fully convinced that both Vaticanus and Sinaiticus are corrupted documents and I believe the evidence you present in your film overwhelmingly supports this fact.  I feel that this whole affair has been completely overlooked by most Christians which is a tragedy. I also think that staunch defenders of Sinaitucus and Vaticanus ... would have a very difficult time defending their claims against the evidence you provide in your film." -- Gareth Yendle, United Kingdom

The Berean Call Praises Hidden Faith Documentary

"TBC believes that The Hidden Faith of the Founding Fathers presents a perspective that is more historically accurate than the popular "Christian History" writers who in effect glorify the Constitution over God's Word and glamorize Washington, D.C. as a "Christian" capital." -- TBC Newsletter, 2012

"When I first encountered his film, I set out to prove that Pinto was wrong.  But after some investigation, I realized I couldn't, and neither could anybody else."  -- Brannon Howse of World View Weekend on "The Hidden Faith of the Founding Fathers"

RECENT PROGRAMS:

 

Today's Show: ABANDONING BIBLICAL INERRANCY - 9.23.2016

Chris discusses the ongoing movement within the Protestant and Evangelical community to abandon the belief that the Bible is the "inerrant" Word of God.  The example is given of a young man who converts to Christianity, but by the time he graduates Bible college, he has become convinced that the Scriptures are not infallible.  How did he come to this conclusion?  Is this the fruit of the modern critical text theory?

 

Today's Show: ORIGINS OF NEW TESTAMENT CORRUPTION - 9.21.2016

Chris discusses some of the most controversial elements of the new film, "Bridge to Babylon" where the history of the Bible is concerned.  The very heart of the debates surrounding the critical text have to do with the many variants that exist in early manuscripts.  But where do they come from?  And why are there so many readings that differ one from another?  There are two schools of thought where this is concerned.  On today's show, we discuss the views of those who defend the traditional text of Scripture.

 

Today's Show: THE SYRIAN RECENSION THEORY - 9.16.2016

Chris discusses the very heart of the Critical Text theory -- the alleged recension (or revision) of the New Testament that is said to have occurred between 250 and 350 A.D., in ancient Syria, according to the Westcott and Hort hypothesis.  The result of this recension was that certain unknown editors added a series of longer readings to the New Testament, and this supposedly accounts for why the Received Text is lengthier than the manuscripts which are said to be the "oldest."  The theory itself was apparently engineered for the purpose of explaining why the Codex Vaticanus contained shorter readings.  Yet the thesis was opposed by leading scholars of the nineteenth century, who argued that it had no basis in actual history, but was the figment of Dr. Hort's imagination.  Two leading figures who denounced the idea were Charles Henry Waller and Canon Cook, who called the theory a "manifest absurdity."

 

Today's Show: THE HAND OF HERESY - 9.14.2016

Chris discusses the Revision Committee of 1881 from the perspective of Dean John W. Burgon and one of his contemporaries, a renowned minister named H.P. Liddon.  The Committee, led by Westcott and Hort chose to include in its company a Unitarian named Dr. Vance Smith.  His inclusion was considered a scandal at the time that caused an uproar among churchmen in England.  Liddon wrote to Burgon that because of the influence of an unbeliever, they should expect to "trace the hand of heresy" in the revision of the English Bible.

 

Today's Show: GNOSTICS & THE NEW TESTAMENT - 9.13.2016

Chris continues his discussion about the controversial influence of Gnostics in the early centuries of Church history.  Some scholars in the nineteenth century rejected the theory of Westcott and Hort because they believed these men had embraced the depraved textual readings of heretics which had been warned about by early church fathers, and were rejected by the majority of the Christian world.  Do the leading manuscripts used by modern textual critics (i.e., the Vaticanus & Sinaiticus) show the influence of ancient Gnostic corruptions?

 

Today's Show: OLDER IS BETTER FOR GNOSTICS - 9.8.2016

Chris continues his discussion of the components of the Critical Text argument, this time focusing on the idea that older manuscripts are supposedly better because they are closer to the originals.  But does this argument stand upon closer investigation?  Nineteenth century scholar John Burgon specifically addressed the controversy, along with his contemporary, F.H.A. Scrivener.  The chief problem with the "older is better" belief is that the worst corruptions of the New Testament occurred within the first two hundred years after they were first written.  Early church fathers warned of the influence of heretical groups, generally referred to as the "Gnostics" and who were concentrated in Alexandria, Egypt.  What does history tell us about their influence?

 

Today's Show: OBEYING THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST - 9.6.2016

Chris continues his discussion of the new film "Bridge to Babylon" and the potentially damaging impact that skeptical scholarship can have on the preaching of the Gospel.  The apostle Paul warned that when the Lord returns, He will take "vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel ..."  As such, our obedience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ is of the utmost importance, especially in this era in which universal theology (i.e. the teaching that all religions are somehow one and the same) is often promoted.  But the question is asked: has the handling of the Scriptures by modern critics weakened confidence in the Bible and, as a result, opened the door to apostasy?

 

Today's Show: THE CRITICAL TEXT - 9.2.2016

Chris continues his discussion of the new documentary, "Bridge to Babylon," this time exploring the indefensible arguments in favor of the Critical Text as somehow representing the inerrant Word of God.  By the admission of leading scholars, the chief critical editions of the Greek text disagree more than 30% of the time, showing a variant rate that calls much of the New Testament into question.  Is it this element of modern textual criticism that has put many sincere Christians in the position of defending the indefensible?  While attempting to convince others that the Scriptures are inerrant, Critical Text believers must also justify the overwhelming number of inconsistencies found in what is called the "oldest and best" manuscript evidence. Yet among traditional text manuscripts (which represent the overwhelming majority) the rate of agreement is better than 99%.

 

Today's Show: BRIDGE TO BABYLON - 9.1.2016

Chris discusses the new documentary: "Bridge to Babylon: Rome, Ecumenism & the Bible."  Perhaps the chief threat to the faith once delivered unto the saints is the ongoing attack against the Bible as the inspired and inerrant Word of God.  "Bridge" traces the history of the modern critical movement from the time of Westcott and Hort who changed the text of the New Testament in 1881.  They are often blamed for helping to usher in a new era of Biblical skepticism, and many believe that the acceptance of their textual theory has systematically eroded trust in the infallible authority Scripture.  Also discussed is some of the history of paleography and its development by the Church of Rome.  Why is paleography important?  And was it developed by Rome as part of the Counter Reformation?

 

 

SHOWS FOR NEW LISTENERS:

 

Today's Show: PAUL & THE OTHER JESUS - 8.22.2016

Chris discusses the Apostle Paul's second letter to the Corinthians, where he warns of those who might come preaching "another Jesus."  Paul clearly associated this deception with that of the serpent in the Garden of Eden.  He goes on to warn of "false apostles" and warns that while they present themselves as "ministers of Christ," they are in fact the ministers of Satan.  This powerful warning to the Church is just as relevant today as it was in the first century.

 

Today's Show: PROMISES OF DELIVERANCE - 12.31.2015

Chris discusses the many promises we are given in the Scriptures concerning deliverance from our enemies, and from all trouble and affliction.  The Scripture says, "Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all."  (Psalm 34:19)  In the world today are so many challenges facing the Christian community, and as such, it is ever more important to remember the many reassurances given to us by God.

FILM SYNOPSIS

In 1881, two scholars named Westcott and Hort published a revision of the New Testament that would send shockwaves through the academic world.  Their new textual theory declared that the King James Version (which had been trusted for centuries) was full of errors.  Sacred readings, long cherished by the faithful, were now declared to be forgeries. The world was informed that the book, which had been called the inerrant Word of God, was in need of correction.

The new theory claimed that recently recovered manuscripts revealed a truer version of Scripture.  Yet others warned that these manuscripts were, in fact, the creation of early Gnostic heretics that had been rightly abandoned centuries before.   Was the new revision filled with ancient corruptions?

Follow the story of the Bible’s controversial history into the twentieth century, as the work of Westcott and Hort would transform biblical scholarship, inspire the work of various Bible Societies, and pave the way for the cause of ecumenical unity between Evangelical Protestants and Rome.
