THESE ARE PERILOUS TIMES!
CHRISTIANS MUST BE VIGILANT
Satan is out to destroy Christians and their families!
Let us not be too proud to HUMBLE OURSELVES
Under the Mighty Hand of God!
I Peter 5:6-11
Personally I am glad that George W. Bush is our new president! I know
many are not. I know some of his political weaknesses, but in spite of that, I am glad.
Of course, this is my personal opinion, and I may have to eat my words. Some are
unhappy. The Gore people are in-hiding someplace--maybe enrolling in journalism
school--who knows? The Clinton followers can't let go! They are still band-aiding their
fingernails from pulling "W's" off their computer keyboards. The Buchanan tribe is
rebuilding the divided Reformed Party--a hopeless task And the Nader Green group is
policing the rain forests and testing for global warming.
As I write this, Senator John Ashcroft is under fire for his conservative,
fundamentalist views. He is bombarded with questions doubting his integrity by such
"peerless" men as Teddy Kennedy of Chapaquidick fame. While Janet Reno, our past
Attorney General, knew no such slaughter except at Waco when her order killed innocent
children. She was Clinton's choice! So, she sailed through into the attorney general's
chair without a Senate whimper, along with her Parkinson's disease, her perverted
sexual orientation, and her cereal-bowl-short-hair.
"A political party is not a church. In churches, goals and expectations should both
be high. In politics, we should never lower our goals, but we should lower our
expectations. We should go for all or something, not all or nothing. If we don't bat
1.000 or even .500, we should not take our ball and go home. And, in evaluating
politicians, we should remember the big difference between a .300 hitter and a .200
hitter. President Bush will disappoint us lots of times, but I believe he's at least a
.300 hitter, and under current conditions in our liberty-theme park it's not going to
get any better than that." [Marvin Olasky, WORLD, December 30, 2000--January
Independent Means Independent
I am so glad that Dr. Waite and I are to the stage in our life that we believe that
the word, INDEPENDENT means independent. Our Bible For Today Baptist Church brochure
says that it is a "A fundamental, independent, unaffiliated, pre-millennial, separated,
Bible-believing Baptist church" and on top of that, we use and preach from the King
James Bible. I am content that in our senior years, we are finally free of associations
and confederations. For you see, in my opinion, when one is in an Association, one
has to cow-tow to the leaders of that "association". One has to bow to the chairmen, the
presidents, the "big church" pastors, and the missionary board heads.
The Ping-Pong Game of "Same/Same" Speakers
Have you noticed those listed on the rosters of this millennium's Bible
conferences--especially among the fundamentalists--that the same people are always the
same speakers? Maybe it is true of the new-evangelical camps and modernist camps, too.
It seems to be that the presidents of the various fundamental schools and seminaries
who speak at each other's conferences must get all worn out. Read their Bible
Conference programs for yourself. See that Dr. Same/Same is always one of the speakers,
as well as the others listed. I can't figure it out! Why the ping-pong game? If your
school president speaks for us, you must ask our president to speak for you. The same
lead speakers switch from one Bible College to another. You scratch my back and I'll
scratch yours. Pity the poor students. Imagine their confusion after hearing a speech
from President So & So from Thus and Thus College. I can hear them wonder, "Have I
chosen the wrong school?"
I'm beginning to wonder a few things myself. Is there a lack of Bible teachers in
America's fundamental world? Are not our churches producing Bible teachers? Are not the
pastors of our local churches studying the Word of God anymore so they can "rise to the
top" and become Bible teachers at Bible Conferences as they did in former years? Is
that the reason colleges and seminaries choose other school's professors and presidents
to fill their platforms for special Bible teaching weeks? Or is it some kind of
political ploy? The "Same/Same" speakers are friends of one another. Many of them
graduated from the same South Carolina University. Some write books together. Most hold
to the Westcott/ Hort-type Greek Text and despise the Textus Receptus. They say they
appreciate the King James Bible but undercut its Greek text on every occasion that they
can--especially in their classroom teaching. Is there some kind of new anti-King James
Bible Club being formed? Is it a union, of some sort, with paying dues of allegiance to
one another and their university? Just asking--that's all!
Expecting A Big Truck With Big Bibles
This week we are expecting a load of Defined King James Bibles--over 5,000 in more
than 500 cardboard boxes--to arrive at our door-step. It is always an exciting event! A
huge semi-truck will back into our driveway; and our men will begin to uncrate huge
wooden crates all the way from South Korea and carry boxes loaded with Bibles into our
garage. Praise God for our large, strong, brick two car garage! Who would have thought,
when we moved here thirty-five years ago, how important to the Lord's work that garage
As soon as the DKJ Bibles (BFT #3000L & #3000M) come into our hands, they will
be sent out to you and others like you who have ordered them. by UNITED PARCEL or U.S.
MAIL. Our son and main man here at THE BIBLE FOR TODAY (Daniel) masterminds this
project with the aid of his two brothers, D.A., Jr. and Pastor Richard Waite. There is
a rumor that two of our grandsons will come from Maryland with their father and Uncle
to help us--along with Dave Peterman and Granddaughter Rebecca Waite. I hope
so--because I can't carry one box, not alone five hundred!

AND THE KJV: A CRITIQUE OF FROM THE MIND OF GOD TO THE MIND OF MAN" BFT #3024 @
$3.50 + $2 S&H By Dr. Jeffrey Khoo
AN E-MAIL FROM DR. JEFFREY KHOO OF SINGAPORE . . .
I wrote that article with a great burden in my heart. How can fundamentalists be so
blind to the poison of Westcott and Hort, and of the modern perversions? By the grace
of God, FAR EASTERN BIBLE COLLEGE will continue to fight the battle for the Bible--the
KJV--in this part of the world. I am thankful for all your publications and resources
in defense of the KJV. I am indebted to all the hard work you have put in, and have
learned much from your books.
I have just returned with Dr. Timothy Tow from a missions
trip to Myanmar. We were there to dedicate a new KJV- based Falam Chin Bible. The Chin
people of Myanmar for many years have been using a Bible that was translated by a Dr.
Stephen Hre Kio--a modernist--who used the TEV [TODAY'S ENGLISH VERSION, the same as
GOOD NEWS FOR MODERN MAN] as his text. The faculty of the FAR EASTERN FUNDAMENTAL
SCHOOL OF THEOLOGY under the leadership of Rev. Robert Thawn Luai has risen to
challenge this attack on the Scriptures. They have translated the Bible into their own
language based on the KJV. They are now in the final stages of translating the OT, and
hope to complete it by next year. LIFE BIBLE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH bought them a brand
new Heidelberg press, and they are making full and indeed very good use of it. We also
presented a copy of the Defined King James Bible to each M. Min graduate of the school.
God is working in the hearts of His people all over the world. He is raising up His
people to defend His Word just as He did in the time of the Reformation. "The LIFE
CHURCH WEEKLY" and the next issue of "THE BURNING BUSH" will carry a full
report. (Jeffery Khoo, B.Th., M.Div., S.T.M., Ph.D., Academic Dean, and Lecturer in New
Testament at the FAR EASTERN BIBLE COLLEGE, Singapore)
A New Korean Bible
DR. WAITE IS VERY ENCOURAGED WITH THE TRANSLATION WORK OF DR. DONSOO JUNG OF INCHON,
SOUTH KOREA. Dr. Jung has been our friend in the Bible fight over the past few years.
He has been working on the Korean front as Jeffrey Khoo and the Tow brothers have been
doing in Singapore and their environs. Whenever he is in this country--which is once or
twice a year--Dr. Jung and his family stop over to our home here in Collingswood for a
visit. This mechanical engineering professor at Inchon University has a passion to get
the true Bible into the hands, minds, and hearts of his Korean people. Over the years
he has spent hours and hours alone and with friends in translation of the King James
Bible into Korean. As you no doubt are aware, the Authorized (KJB) is an accurate,
reliable translation of the Textus Receptus Greek and Masoretic Hebrew. So, when
someone who doesn't know the original languages, or when someone butchers the original
languages, but knows English well, it is better to translate the English King James
into the heart languages of the people--though I do believe Dr. Jung has consulted the
original texts for any problems. Anyhow, his beautiful leather Bible is ready for the
Korean speaking & reading public. If you are interested, call or write us for Dr.
It pleases my husband immensely to see the stand for the KJB and its underlying
texts promoted in the Far East. He can't help contemplating the confusion in the
fundamental camps in the United States. Those who should be standing together in
textual matters have succumbed to the modernist position and teachings on Biblical
Some forget that Dr. Waite was trained in his Bible Greek From a WESTCOTT/ HORT New Testament. It took him 21 years to change over to the TR
position. He did not come to such a position from the womb. His conviction came by
reading REVISION REVISED by John Wm Burgon (BFT #611 @ $25+$6 S&H) after a student
inquired if he'd ever seen that book. Instead of becoming angry and defensive, like so
many teachers do today, he read Burgon's undeniable arguments and saw the light. My
husband got his high grades at Dallas Theological Seminary years ago from the actual
words from that Westcott/Hort text. But I will say this: that at least, Dallas is
honest in this day and age and doesn't use the King James Bible anymore! That is a
consistent position. That's more than can be said of most fundamental schools who
peddle the Nestle-land and United Bible Society (UBS) Greek Testaments in their Greek
classes and use the King James Bible on their preaching platform..
Let Me Quote From Some Recent Letters
From a Prisoner
". . . I am writing you to let you know that I truly thank the Lord for your Defined
King James Bible. I found it in a cell one day as I was cleaning it and I have not been
able to put it down. Pastor Waite, I'm in jail doing some time but I know that the Lord
is going to open these doors for me real soon. . . ."
I don't know exactly how that DKJ Bible got into that jail, but just wanted to share
the blessing that Bible brought him and others inside and outside of prison. We do not
have a jail ministry. So please don't get all interested in this. Most prisoners have
no money for their requests or even their postage. So if we do send something to them,
it costs us out of our own BFT pocket! The exasperating thing is that the prisons, for
the most part, will not accept the Bibles even though we try to follow their rules.
Occasionally we get a Bible through to an inmate and he shows it around. This is a
mistake because a crowd of them ask for free Bibles or literature. Most all the time
those items, which cost us money to print and send, come back refused. It is
discouraging for us and our limited staff.
From North Carolina
I had a letter from a couple who didn't live anywhere near Kansas; yet a brother
from that state lent them a copy of DEFENDING THE KING JAMES BIBLE (BFT #1594-P @
$12.00 + S&H $4.00) by D. A. Waite. They told how the book answered their questions
about their personal uneasiness when their church was in the process of changing the
church's Bible. This version-changing is happening and has happened all over the world;
yet there are some churches who are changing back to the old King James! Did you know
My husband teaches Sunday School at our church. . .Our church belongs to the
Southern Baptist Association and they are leaning toward Sunday School literature with
the NIV verses. We plan to share with them about the study you did comparing the KJV to
the original 1611 KJV and the modern versions to the KJV [BFT #1294 @ $2.50+$2.00
S&H]. They will be amazed as we were, I know, to find so many differences (6,653!)
in the NIV. We will recommend that everyone purchase your book DEFENDING THE KING JAMES
BIBLE. It is full of so much eye-opening information.
From a Pastor
I just listened to your message on Galatians 6:10-18. I found it a blessing. I am
preaching on the passage this Lord's Day. Hopefully soon I will listen to your message
that covers 1 Peter 3:21.
A Quote From Defending The King James Bible by D.A.W. BFT #1594-P @ $12.00 + $4.00
One of the reasons for the "THEOLOGICAL ERRORS IN THE VERSIONS" is their lack of
diligence in regarding the very WORDS of the Living God! If the modern versions and
perversions had kept all the Hebrew and Greek WORDS that form the underlying basis
for the King James Bible, and if they had actually TRANSLATED these words correctly as
did the King James Bible, instead of PARAPHRASING them, there would have been very few,
if any "THEOLOGICAL ERRORS" to talk and write about!
The BATTLE for God's Word in our day is a BATTLE about "WORDS".
In order to win that
BATTLE, as the KING JAMES BIBLE has done, two things must be true: (1) you must have
the exact "WORDS" in Hebrew and Greek to begin with and (2) You must have a proper
translating technique which respects these exact "WORDS" in English. Dynamic
equivalence and paraphrase will not do. (Pastor D. A. Waite in Defending The KJB, pg
Preaching in 1 Corinthians and Beyond!
By PASTOR D. A. WAITE, Th.D., Ph.D.
The First Corinthian Tapes in Progress There
will be 16 audio cassettes (BFT #2997/1-16 @ $48 + S&H) and 8 videos (BFT#2997VC1-8
@ $15 each, or $85 + S&H.) It will take thirty-two weeks to teach Paul's epistle to
the Church at Corinth. 12 Chapters are ready NOW. I hope that you order these teaching
tapes. My husband teaches every verse. His verbiage is easily understood. He doesn't
use big words to wow you with his knowledge.
Maybe you have a longing to understand the Word of God better. Why not avail
yourself of this wonderful opportunity to learn the Bible? You can play the audio tapes
in your car as you are driving from place to place, and/ or watch the videos in the
quietness of your home alone, or with your family. Some order these videos every month
to be a part of our "satellite" listeners. Many people are hungry to learn what the
Bible says in every verse, and to hear it preached from the King James Bible. They are
weary of the modern versions! My husband teaches in a very easy manner. HE DOESN'T SKIP
OVER DIFFICULT, CONTROVERSIAL PASSAGES LIKE TOPICAL PREACHERS OFTEN DO.

It is sad to say, but some people can't find a Bible-preaching church that uses the
King James Bible; or if they do, there is a mixture of Bibles in the congregation. Some
people are not comfortable with this babel, so they have been staying home from church.
I believe in fellow-shipping with the Saints myself; but I am not sure I could sit
Sunday after Sunday in a church where the wrong Bible is used. There is a dearth in the
Gospel of John Bible Study On Sundays At 1:30 P.M.
WE ARE EXCITED TO HAVE A NEW SERVICE IN OUR CHURCH. As you may remember, our morning
church service is from 10:00 A M, until 11:30 AM (900 Park Avenue, Collingswood, NJ).
During this time, we not only have an expository message from the Word of God by our
pastor, but we sing favorite hymns and gospel songs led by Mr. Dick Carroll
accompanying us on our baby grand Baldwin piano. I wish that you could join us by video
or come personally to contribute to the discussion. It is a blessing. I try very hard
to video all of us as we participate, and focus often on Pastor Waite as he directs our
thoughts into this Gospel that tells us of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God.
Feel free to order these discussions. (BFT # John/VCR) or better still, DROP IN! It
will whet your appetite to look into God's Word for yourself.
Yes, We Do Have Expenses!
If my husband and I would send out the typical "prayer"
letter that many missionaries send, we could fill pages with BIBLE FOR TODAY financial
needs, car repairs, broken air conditioners, copy machine difficulties, printing costs,
personal difficulties, and physical pains, but we don't. We could tell you about the
problems of the people with whom we minister in our church, community, and in our BFT
and DBS (Dean Burgon Society) family, but we don't. I could write a very exciting
account of people's prayer requests, but I don't. Their personal lives are their
personal business. So I just "hit-chat" with you and hope you can catch some of our
work's burden and some of our heart needs. Occasionally I tell you a family heartache
like Elizabeth's recent near-death accident, but that is very rare. You were so
wonderful in prayer for her. It was very tender to our hearts to read and hear of your
care. But many of our heart aches are too personal and private to splash on a written
page. I'm sure you understand.
For instance, our P.S.E.&G. (electric & gas) bill for this month is $663.12.
My husband and I pay this bill ourselves. I'm not asking . I'm just telling. Nor am I
complaining--I really am not. I just want you to know that nothing is free--not even
our salvation. Jesus Christ paid for that on Calvary. Remember?
Today I had some kind of medical procedure and it hurt me very much. I thought of
the pain and suffering that my Saviour bore on the cross for me. But the greatest of
His suffering was the sin--the sin of the world--that the Father put on His sinless
Son. My sin caused such suffering. Your sin! The sin of the world brought agony that
neither you nor I will ever know, no matter how much we have pain. Why did He love us
I MUST RUN, I HAVE WORK TO DO AND PLACES TO GO! I wonder what the Lord has in mind
for you and me this coming month. Sometimes we "plan" our lives--what foolishness!--and
we wake up in a state of confusion, without a job, in the hospital, or in love, or
happy as a lark over nothing special. We, too, have needs! Doesn't everybody?
Always in God's Care Even In The Midst of Confusion,
Yvonne Sanborn Waite
