THESE ARE PERILOUS TIMES!

CHRISTIANS MUST BE VIGILANT

Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner;
But be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God.

2 TIMOTHY 1:8

24-HOUR STREAMING: www.BFTBC.ORG


Dear friend of the BFT,

WHERE WERE WE WHEN THE NJ NEWS BROKE?

ITíS RAINING! But that isnít unusual. Never saw so much wet stuff in a New Jersey summer. Lumberton, a town near us, was flooded, as well as Medford. You probably saw our flood pictures on the television news. And itís been unusually cool, too. But whose complaining about that? Must say that yesterdayís heat made up for it. It was oppressively hot!

Yes, NEW JERSEY has made the news! Our GOVERNOR Mc GREEVEY has come out!" He says he is "gay." The governor said his recent partner was GOLAN CIPEL. The Governor met him in Israel. He made him his well-paid aide. Guess what? McGreevey appointed him his security advisor for our State! That wasnít Cipelís expertise! He couldnít do the job. Cipel claims that heís a victim of the governorís repeated sexual advances. I donít know if he were or not. Oozing behind and around these sensational headlines is political corruption--big time! According to last nightís paper, DINA MATOS McGREEVEY is in utter shock! Sheís McGreevyís present wife. His first wife lives in British Columbia with his first daughter, MORAG. (Donít ask me how to pronounce that one!) No wonder judgmental rains are falling in New Jersey!

Christian Lake Bible Conference

Stratford, New York

AUGUST 9-13

Since MR. DON WEBB and his side-kick JAMES, and the campís board of directors, bought the old cabin on the edge of Christian Lake, Iíve enjoyed my days at the conference. It is a small cabin--just right for Dr. Waite and me to relax in between his speaking twice a day at the tabernacle down the road. We set up a work area on the enclosed back porch. Looking out the picture windows at the green trees and white clouds, reflected in the water, was most relaxing. My husband was working on his Romans book. It is half completed (Romans 1-8 finished). That doesnít count proof-reading and correcting. Itís a long book compared to the other Bible-teaching books he has written. Really enjoyed the rest and quiet out in the country. Also, we enjoyed the "drop-in" visits by friends such as PASTOR & MRS. PAGANO, Don Webb and James, and especially MARK RENO & GAITER JONES. Mark and Gaiter brought food and cooked hamburgers! (Of course, I could have done without the nightly mice guests--but you canít have everything!)

Misinformation On Bible Versions

Mr. Webb had requested that my husband continue his defense of the King James Bible and its underlying texts this year. Dr. Waite had taught the first series in 2003, if you remember, (BFT #3151/1-3 @ $9.00 + $4.00 S&H). This year, Dr. Waite spoke on "WHAT FUNDAMENTALISTS THINK OF BIBLE PRESERVATION." (BFT #3204/1-3 @ $9.00 + $4.00 S&H) My husband reviewed for us the positions of the writers of The Mind of God to the Mind of Man book using his own answer FUNDAMENTALIST MISINFORMATION ON BIBLE VERSIONS (BFT #2974 @ $7.00 + 4.00 S&H). He also answered, in part, the fairly new book written by the pro-critical texts men called GODíS WORD IN OUR HANDS--The Bible Preserved For us. (This is a sequel to the Mind book.) I wish that you would order Dr. Waiteís complete answer to that book. He did this on the radio. Ask for RADIO TAPES BFT #216-219 @ $12.00 + $4.00 S&H). He says the authors say by their title (Godís Word in Our Hands) that Godís Word is in our hands; but when you read the book, they say they canít find it. They say that the "Word" of God is only Godís "message" or his "ideas"--not Godís exact "Words." It is a very insidious teaching. Yet, it comes from the heart of fundamentalist colleges and seminaries like Bob Jones University, Detroit Seminary, Central Seminary, and Calvary Seminary in Lansdale, Pa. Eventually, my husband wants to write an answer to that book, too. He has his first draft finished.

A Prayer Room Dedicated to Ellie Webb

Before I cease my reminiscing about CHRISTIAN LAKE BIBLE CONFERENCE, let me tell you about THE PRAYER ROOM. It is like a "hut." Itís a tiny building--a small carpeted one-room, eight-sided structure with petite built-in benches, a desk, one chair, and a Defined King James Bible from our ministry (BFT #3000L @ $40.00 + $7.50 S&H; #3000M @ $35 + $6.00 S&H). It is dedicated to the memory of Ellie Webb, the directorís wife who went Home to be "with the Lord" a few years ago. The outside resembles a rounded wooden hut, beautifully constructed with a metal steeple pointing to the sky.

A Holy Site

The first time I entered that "holy" site, I felt a calm and peace. Let me explain to you what I mean by "holy." (I think it is what God means also.) The way I understand it, "holy" means separated unto God, or separated for a specific godly purpose. The little prayer place Iím talking about, was "separated" unto God for a specific purpose--for prayer.

As I walked through its door, I felt a hush. I was alone. There was silence. I was shut in---away from people and problems. I was "shut-in" with the Lord. I could think about His "still small voice." Now I know that God is present, everywhere present (omniscient), but the smallness, the quietness--the roomís emptiness of earthly possessions and pressures brought Him closer to my senses, to my spirit and soul. Yes, God is everywhere! And, if we know Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour, He is in us! Yet, sometimes life is so cluttered, so full of things, and people, pain, places, and disappointments, as well as responsibilities, that we donít "feel" Him as close as our own breath. We donít walk hand-in-hand with Him. That closeness was part of what Adam and Eve gave up when they succumbed to the Serpent in the Garden.

A Room Devoted to Prayer

Only once before in a Bible-believing church, had I ever been in a "room" that was purposefully and wholly dedicated to prayer. That was years ago in PASTOR PAUL RENOís church in Hagerstown, Maryland. I suppose that is where Mr. Webb got the idea for his prayer room there at the conference. I donít know for sure. Many churches have a "prayer room" at the front of the churchís sanctuary to the left or to the right of the platform. Often, it becomes cluttered with stuff, like a store room, or a meeting room for committees to wrangle in, or storage of choir robes and music, or for baptismal candidates to use as a dressing room. It isnít open for anyone to come in and pray. Perchance if a person would actually make his way up front to pray, people would wonder what in the world is that someone doing in the church anyhow? Perhaps the police would be called!

How many churches or Christian ministries have a small or medium-sized room just for personal prayer? Jesus had a prayer garden, didnít He? Or a prayer mountain? Life was so complicated for Him that He had to get alone with His Father. I must confess, life is so busy, so cluttered, so full of mundane things as well as spiritual duties, that we have no room--apart from all--dedicated to prayer. I suppose, I, personally, make the excuse that I should be praying "in season and out of season" (instant in prayer), that I should always be in prayer and not faint, so why would I need a special room for prayer; and, why would a church need such a room, of all things--especially if it were a "purpose driven church"?

Prayer on the Run

Yes, we must have prayer. There is nothing wrong with prayer "on the run," so to speak--EMERGENCY PRAYER, "walking-on-the-water" praying. What would we do without it? Thatís what Disciple Peter did when he took His eyes off the Lord Jesus Christ and began to sink in the sea. He prayed! He had an emergency! Oh, for a place of quietness to which we would actually flee! Donít we need a place away from the prying eyes of our critics and our families? I suppose the closest I have come to such a spot is my bedroom. But it is so messy right now!--suitcases, papers, books, clothes to be folded. Iíve had some wrestling matches with the angels there upon occasion. Then, the car has been my prayer closet as I speed down the highways of life. How often Iíve cried to and from the hospitals begging God to heal! How often Iíve screamed to God when distressed with personal cares, caring not what other drivers thought of me! How often have I prayed with my husband for our children as we would drive to a preaching assignment! How often has my heart been broken when no words would come! Yes, God can read our hearts. This should not only comfort us, but it should also frighten us!

A Quiet Chamber

What wouldnít I give for a quiet chamber away from the eyes and ears of others--and the telephone! But then, if I actually had such a "holy" site, would I use it?

One afternoon, I said to my husband, "Letís take a walk!" We did that several times while at Christian Lake this year. As we neared the Prayer Room, I said, "Letís go in there. It is so quiet and peaceful." And it was. We prayed. Often when I pray with my husband, I ramble to God. I tell Him my feelings. I pray for our children, for Dr. Waite, for others, or just tell God that I am tired. It was good to be in that little room together with the man I married fifty-six years ago. Then, the rains came--the refreshing rains! The blessing of rain, washing the world about us. We had no umbrella. A van came by and gave us a ride back to the speakerís cabin.

My mother, Gertrude Sanborn, expressed her need for quietness in prayer when she wrote the following poem: Above The Din

Above the din and noise and strife,
Above the cares of my own life;
O Lord, I come to Thee and pray;
Now teach me, Lord, just what to say.
For self I cry, "I need Thy touch!"
For I do murmur ever much;
For others dear, I yearn and plead
That Thou wilt grant their every need.
My Lord, I long to come to Thee
So free and oft that I may be
In reverent attitude all day
To lift my heart and learn to pray.

DEAN BURGON SOCIETYíS 26TH YEAR

Heritage Baptist University

Greenwood, Indiana

JULY 14-15, 2004

This year the Dean Burgon Society had the sweetest spirit--not that all the meetings arenít good; but, this year, everything seemed dear to me. Others said so, too. IT WAS OUR TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR! I think this was partially true, if not completely, because our host, PRESIDENT RUSSELL DENNIS, JR. was most cordial, open, and friendly. He and his wife had my husband and me, and a few others, over to their house prior to the first session. What a lovely way to get acquainted!

Fundamentalist Deception on Bible Preservation

My husband spoke on "FUNDAMENTALIST DECEPTION ON BIBLE PRESERVATION" (BFT #3204/1-3 @ $9.00 + $4.00 S&H). HE IS EXCELLENT! Of course, I am biased. I just listened to him as I passed the office where the DBS videos are being reproduced. You must get the entire series of twenty-one speakers! ASK FOR DBS-2004 SERIES. We have it on videos (BFT #3200VC1-3 @ $35.00 + $5.00 S&H), or DVD (BFT 3200DV1-3 @ $35.00 + $5.00 S&H), as well as audio cassette (BFT #3200/1-8 @ $24.00 + $5.00 S&H). You can hear these tapes in your car. I am not sure if we will have them on CDís or not. (We have a very small staff.--if we had more contributions to the BFT, we could have more staff!)

The Lie That Changed The Modern World

For the first time in the history of the Society, we are having a full-time man on the road. His name is H. D. WILLIAMS, M.D. He is a retired medical doctor out of Georgia. I think you would enjoy having him speak in your church. Call him at 706-219-2153. His topic at DBS was "The Attack on the Cannon of Scripture" (BFT #3200/3 @ $4.00 + $2.00 S&H). Perhaps you have read his recently published BOOK: THE LIE THAT CHANGED THE MODERN WORLD (BFT #3125 @ $16.00 + $5.00 S&H). Itís a 440-page hard-backed book packed full of good facts concerning the Bible Version debate.

I was especially interested in the message by PASTOR MARC MONTE of Indiana, FUNDAMENTALIST BIBLE BETRAYAL BFT #3200/7 @ $4.00 + $2.00 S&H).

"Dr, Waite, You Make Us Feel Safe!"

Prior to his message, Pastor Monte told how much he and his brother looked forward to receiving THE DEAN BURGON NEWS when he was a student at a popular fundamental University in South Carolina. They looked forward to whatever Dr. Waite wrote in those days. They needed to have their faith in the integrity of the KING JAMES BIBLE buttressed and enforced. After saying what the DBS NEWS and Dr. Waiteís work meant to him as a young student, who stood fairly alone for the RECEIVED TEXTS, Pastor Monte looked at my husband and said, "Dr. Waite, you made us feel safe!"

The Influence Of One Man For the Wrong Text

I canít tell you how those words warmed my heart. I appreciated Pastor Monteís thanking my husband! I know all the hours and hours my husband puts into this Bible battle. I know how he has stood alone for years against the forces of fundamentalists who have been influenced by S. P. TREGELLESís bringing the Westcott/Hort Greek Texts into "born-again" Christian colleges, universities, and seminaries. They swallowed it hook, line, and sinker when B. B. WARFIELD of Princeton Seminary (taught by W/H) regurgitated their Greek teachings. So did C. I. SCOFIELD accept it, for that matter--along with notables like JAMES GRAY, WILLIAM R. NEWELL, HARRY IRONSIDE, and BOB JONES, SR. These men never did any manuscript digging themselves, you know. They just accepted the new theories!

A NEW BOOKLET BY JACK MOORMAN

DID YOU KNOW THAT ETHELBERT BULLINGER, the head of the Trinitarian Bible Society for forty-six years, nearly succumbed to his friend Tregellesís Greek text? I learned all of this when I read MISSIONARY JACK MOORMANíS twelve-page booklet called SAMUEL P. TREGELLES--The Man Who Made the Critical Text Acceptable to Bible Believers. (BFT # 3195 @ $2.00 + $1.00 S&H). The Bible For Today, Inc. put Dr. Moormanís work into print as soon as Dr. Waite received it. It is a vital booklet! It may be the most important booklet on this subject published in a long time! Why? Because it points the finger on why BOB JONES UNIVERSITY, DALLAS THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY, and all the other schools that have followed suit are in the wrong Greek Text camp!

WHO WAS S. P. TREGELLES?

Did you know that this S. P. Tregelles was a Bible-believer? He was led to the Lord by a Plymouth Brethren Bible teacher named NEWTON. Tregelles studied Hebrew and Greek on his own, became a student of manuscripts on a par (or better) with Griesbach, Lachmann, Tischendorf, Winer, Alford, and Westcott and Hort. They lived at the same time when the King James Version was changed by the W/H Greek text--thus: THE ENGLISH REVISED VERSION of 1881. Can you believe it? It was a Bible-believer that indoctrinated the fundamentalist world with the wrong text!

Why Scholars Forsook The Textus Receptus

"JUST FOR WOMEN" #54 RADIO PROGRAM

I did a complete radio program on the subject. (Must confess, I got mixed up on the dates in a chart my husband handed me--otherwise all is correct!) That program was aired on short wave and a couple other stations. Ask for radio tape "WHY SCHOLARS FORSOOK THE TEXTUS RECEPTUS" (JFW/54 @ $4.00 +$2.00 S&H).

Did you know that Dr. Waite was a father of five children before he realized heíd been hood-winked at DALLAS THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY? He learned koine Greek there. Thatís when he was handed the actual Westcott & Hort Greek New Testament Text from which to read. He did not know of any other Greek Text until over 20 years later when Sandy, a woman student of his, asked, "Dr Waite, have you ever read REVISION REVISED by John Burgon?"(BFT #611 @ $25.00 + $5.00 S&H) By the way, have you ever read that book yourself?

Dr. Hollowood Home With The Lord

Dr. M. J. Hollowood, long-time pastor, Bible teacher, college professor, husband, father, grandfather, and friend left this life of woe for that bliss up yonder. It was a joyous departure for him, for he had been ill for many months; yet we who enjoyed his presence will miss him. His funeral was on July 28, 2004, in a beautiful chapel near their home. Friends and family from far and near were present.

Earlier in the month, while at the Dean Burgon Society meetings in Greenwood in July, his son Rev. David Hollowood (DBS Exec. Com.) of New Holland, Pennsylvania, paid a living tribute to his father. We all knew that Dr. Hollowoodís days were numbered. (Arenít all of our days numbered? Some have not the warning that Dr. Hollowood had. Some go unexpectedly.) We were challenged, as well as blessed, hearing such words! (BFT #3200/4 @ $4.00 + $2.00 S&H)

Later when the actual memorial service was held on July 28th, Dr. Waite (DBS Pres.) & I, as well as BROTHER (DBS Exec. Com.) & SISTER PAUL RENO from Hagerstown, Md., DAN (DBS Treasurer) & TAMARA WAITE from Collingswood, NJ, and the Dean Burgon Societyís newly elected vice-president and missionary/representative, DR. & MRS. H. D. WILLIAMS attended. The Williams drove all the way from Georgia.

Our presence was our silent tribute to our friend

Dr. Hollowood was one of the founding members of the DBS, and the vice president all these years. Dr. Thomas Strouse, also a DBS executive member and dean of Emmanuel Baptist Seminary in Newington, CT was asked to give a tribute to his teacher. Dr. Strouse mentioned, that years ago, Dr. Hollowood taught him the defense of the King James Bible and its underlying Greek and Hebrew texts from Dr. Waiteís syllabus on the subject. I was personally glad to hear that--more fruit from all the labor that my husband had done all these years.

How important it is to put our thoughts into written form. Without the words, we would not preserve what anybody really was saying. That is true of the Bible also. Without the Words of God preserved, we would not know what God had said. My husband teaches this all the time!

Dr. Waite at Grace Baptist Church

MIAMI, FLORIDA/ JUNE 12-15, 2004

For many months, I was hoping that we would be invited to a certain wedding in the Midwest. I thought it would be a great opportunity to be with "family." Secretly I was glad that June was not filling up with speaking engagements for us. I kept saying to my husband, "Be sure to save early June in case we get invited." So when the phone rang and the invitation came for Dr. Waite to have a Bible conference in Miami in early June, I knew that I would not be able to persuade him to take two long trips in one month "if."

WELL, NO "IF" CAME!! So it was a good thing my husband accepted PASTOR CHESTER MULLIGANSís invitation! And guess what? I got to speak, too. Besides that, we had a wonderful time at GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH. Just think: if we had not consented to fly down there and waited around for what wasnít to be, we would have been home in Collingswood with no place to go and missed the opportunity to serve the Lord, as well as meet some wonderful people. I learned a lesson: Accept what is put before you and donít regret what doesnít come your way. What a joy to be with PASTOR & MRS. CHESTER MULLIGAN at Grace Baptist Church on 19301 S.W. 127th Avenue, in Miami, Florida 33177. Yes, the pastorís wife was beautiful in two ways--in appearance and in action--a lovely lady. If I remember correctly, they had four children--three boys and a daughter. The two older teenage sons sang duets at church. I was impressed with their deportment.

A GO-GETTER PASTOR

Pastor Mulligan is new as a pastor at Grace Baptist. HE IS A GO-GETTER! In the brief few months that he has been at GRACE, heís made many improvements. The whole auditorium has had a face-lift, as well as other areas of the church. Ever since HURRICANE ANDREW years ago, nothing was done to improve the church building. Pastor Mulligan has a vision! He has started a Spanish-speaking ministry with a competent Spanish-speaking man at the helm under the senior pastor. Soon the auditorium will be butted out, making room for those congregants the Pastor expects to come their way. He has landscaping plans for the lawn. It will be a show-place for Christians to meet. As of a few weeks ago, he was encouraged by my husband to do verse- by-verse studies in the Bible. After ordering some Greek tools, Pastor Mulligan has begun to teach the book of Philippians. It is a new experience for him to teach systematically through a Bible book. I know it will bless his people.

A KING JAMES CHURCH THAT DEFENDS ITíS POSITION

He told us that his church is the only English-speaking church in the Miami area that not only uses the King James Bible but defends it. Because he wanted his people to have a good foundation as to WHY they used the King James, he invited my husband to be the first special speaker for his first Bible conference. It was a privilege for my husband to do so. Youíll have to order the videos. Ask for THE MIAMI MEETINGS/2004: ( BFT #3208/1-3 @ $9.00 + $4.00 S&H). We were pleased with the BOOK TABLE response! People took the DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLES, too. By the way, if you can only get one book on the Bible defense subject, do get DEFENDING THE KING JAMES BIBLE by Dr. Waite. It is the primer of books on the subject! Ask for BFT #1594-P @ $12.00 + $4.00 S & H)

Mrs. Waite Spoke on Sarah, the Example Wife

I was happy to speak to the women of the church at a supper the first night we were in town--that was Saturday. Because Iíd been talking about Sarah on my radio program, I continued in that same vein. I call the tape THE CELL PHONE CONTROVERSY (BFT #3209 @ $4.00 + $2.00 S&H). It really is about SARAH, THE EXAMPLE WIFE from I Peter 3:6 but I call it The Cell Phone Controversy to peek your interest. I tell of an argument that I had the night before with my husband about my cell phone. His battery didnít work and so he took the battery out of mine. For the life of me, I canít remember the details at this writing--something about a battery clip. Canít recall. There are a few other humorous things in that talk. I told about unplugging the child-listening device in our bedroom. We were staying in the childrenís playroom of our hosts. Come to find out the thing I unplugged was also a small television camera. There was much laughter over that. All these modern conveniences parents have now to spy on their children.

It Was Good To Be In Miami Again

It was interesting to be in Miami again. Years ago, when my husband was a Navy chaplain, we lived in Opa Locka, Florida--a section of Miami. I understand that it had changed very much since those 1956 years. That was the year our only daughter was born. Weíve only been back there once. That was over thirty years ago when we were hijacked to Cuba. After finally returning to the United States, our plane landed at the Miami airport. How good to be in the USA again! We rented a station wagon and took the opportunity to look around our old neighborhood. My how it had changed! It must be worse now. Our daughter was born in St Francis Hospital on Miami Beach. The Navy duty doctor didnít get there on time! She was born in the labor room ! That was about eight or ten months before my husband went overseas for a year with the Marines. The Navy chaplains served both the Navy and the Marines in those days. It is the same today.

TWO LITTLE BOYS

Getting back to June of 2004! We stayed with a special couple--BILL & NERCEY RADCLIFF. They had two little blonde boys and another on the way--CHRISTOPHER & KEVIN. Their home was absolutely beautiful!--large, spacious rooms, a full kitchen, beautiful grass, and a front yard with blowing palm trees. I was impressed every time the button was pushed to drive through the locked iron gate on to the circular driveway up to the front door. We did that often--because we went to church every night to hear my husband teach the defense of the King James Bible at Grace Baptist.

A BILINGUAL HOME

Mrs. Radcliff was a beautiful & gracious young woman. (Most everyone is young to me now, but not everyone is gracious.) Her parents came from Cuba years ago. Her father was an educated lawyer there; but, coming to the United States, he had to clean bathrooms and do lowly tasks for a living at first. Then he became a builder, retired, then went into the jewelry business with his wife. Nercy is bilingual and wants her children to speak both Spanish and English. So we were doing much Spanish-speaking that week. My husband is fluent in Spanish, but Iíd forgotten most--but it was coming back. Before her children were born, our hostess was a successful business woman with a well-known cosmetic company. She jetted all over, instructing salespeople how to use and sell the new products.

A STAY-AT-HOME MOM

After a few years, as a new mother, she saw the need to stay home with her children and be what God wanted her to be--a full time wife and mother. Her dedication to Godís will showed in her daily interchange with her husband, her children, and us. Personally, I thought she was doing too much--making meals, not only for us but for the Pastor, his wife, and other guests; to say nothing of the nightly mango shakes she whipped up for us with her blending machine. They had a mango tree in their yard.

King James Bible Ohio Roots

Bill Radcliff was from Ohio--I think from the Zanesville area--but Iíve really forgotten. He not only is a senior mechanic at American Airlines, but also he owns some apartments and houses which he rents to others. Heís no absentee landlord. He sees his renters every month to be sure things are going right in the neighborhood. It is his construction crew that has been working on the renovation of Pastor Mulliganís church. Maybe you donít remember, but Dr. Waite and I are from Ohio, too. We graduated from Berea High school almost sixty years ago. Can it be that long ago? Anyhow, it was in Ohio that our host was taught not only the beauty of the King James Bible but the authority of it. For years the Radcliffs could not find a church that used the King James Bible, so they had church in their home. When they moved to their present house, they searched and found GRACE BAPTIST, and travel more than most to attend that fellowship. Like we say here at BIBLE FOR TODAY BAPTIST CHURCH: The Difference is Worth the Distance!

My Cousin Jim Came to Visit

One of the rewarding events in our Florida trip was the visit from my cousin JIM SANBORN. I had not seen him since he was a small boy--perhaps he was eight or ten. That was over fifty-five years ago. It wasnít that I didnít want to see him. Our paths never crossed. When I knew that weíd be in Miami, I wrote him, hoping heíd want to see me, too. He drove over to the Radcliff home from his place in Ft. Lauderdale. Because he did that, I knew he wanted to see me, too. There were only six first cousins in our immediate family. Thereís Jim and his brother, Stanton, and our oldest cousin Vernon, Jr., and I. Both of my sisters have died. So there are only four of us left.

My Uncleís Younger Son

Jim is my Uncle Claytonís younger son. It was so good to see him. I hugged him. He was family. He reminded me of his father. Saw his mother in his face, too. We ate at a near-by Cuban restaurant. The food was good. The talking loud. Our voices added to the sound. We talked of our parents. We remembered our grandparents, We took pictures. We looked at old pictures. Iíd brought my motherís old photograph book with snap shots starting from 1923. Jim saw his father when he was sixteen. I donít know if heíd ever seen him that young before. There were a few pictures of Jim as a toddler with our whole Sanborn clan. Pictures of me, too, as a little child. There was so much to catch up on. Iím so glad he came!

We Share the Same Heritage

My father, REN O. SANBORN, had two brothers and one sister. They were the children of LORENZO O. SANBORN AND FLORENCE VERN VAN TASSELL SANBORN. My Dadís oldest brother was VERNON J. SANBORN. Then there was the second born, my father. Next was FLORENCE A., and lastly CLAYTON V. SANBORN. Jimís mother was LUCILLE, a lovely lady from Jamestown, Ohio. She was a twin. She died a few years ago. Aunt Florence had a sad life. She was ill from her late teens or early twenties until she died at forty. She had an unfaithful husband. He forsook her. He didnít want a sick wife. Uncle Vernon had been married briefly to Vernon, Jr.ís mother. AUNT VIOLA was Uncle Vernonís wife as long as I could remember. I have many happy memories of her. She died in April of this year (2004) at age 102, missing her 103rd birthday by a few months. All these people, whom I love, are not with us anymore but they professed faith in Jesus Christ, and I expect to meet them in Heaven some day.

One time I wrote about some of my family who were buried in Collins, Ohio. Their name was FAIRBANKS. A woman named BARBARA LELAND was looking up her genealogy . She got on her computer and found that name of Fairbanks in one of my BFT UPDATES on our Web page. She contacted me. We found out that we share the same great grandfather. That would be my fatherís GRANDFATHER ORLEY R. SANBORN. Now I know where my father and grandfather got their middle name!

Dr. Waite Was in Allentown, Pa

Race Street Baptist Church--June 27th

Every once in a while PASTOR GARY FREEMAN calls Dr. Waite. "Will you preach for me on such & such Sunday evening." June 27th was one of those invitations. Pastor Freeman was going to be in Hong Kong on business. So we drove over to the RACE STREET BAPTIST CHURCH in Catasauqua, Pennsylvania. By now, weíre learning how to get there. We enjoy it there. We are getting to know the people. His son is the pianist and his daughter, home from college, was at the organ. My husband spoke from 2 TIMOTHY 4:1-8 on PAULíS LAST VITAL WORDS. Why not order the tape and listen to that sermon in your car. (BFT #3192 @ $4.00 + $2.00 S&H)

Rebecca Lynn Waite is Off For College

Where did that little five-pound baby go? Her name was Rebecca. We often call her Becka. Eighteen years ago, when I first saw my newly born granddaughter, I wondered how any baby so tiny could grow up to be a regular person. Well, a regular person she is! Becka graduated from HOMESCHOOL June (2004). She and her co-graduates wore cap and gown. Their colors were royal blue and gold. Grandpa Waite and I were there! So were her other grandparents--and her Uncles and Aunts, and cousins. She gave a speech. She cried. It was uncharacteristic for her to do so. But all the emotions of her years swelled into her heart and came out her eyes in thanksgiving tears. Now my "babe in the woods" whom I used to rock and sing to, will be flying off to college. We are proud of her. She is so lovely, bright, and friendly. I know the Lord has something special for her to do. Iíll keep you posted.

THANKS FOR HELPING THE BFT MINISTRIES

WE ALWAYS HAVE A FINANCIAL NEED

OUR BIBLE FOR TODAY MINISTRIES ALWAYS NEEDS FUNDS TO PAY OUR STAFF AND PRINT BOOKS, ETC. That is why we appreciate you so much for you have contributed to our work. Thank you. Another reason is a good book table response means the people are interested in the subject. Several people purchased THE DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLE while there. Do you have a copy? (BFT #3000 @ $40.00 LARGE LEATHER; $35.00 MEDIUM LEATHER; $20 LARGE HARDBACK; $15 MEDIUM HARDBACK + $6.00 S&H each). WE ARE EXPECTING ANOTHER SHIPMENT OF MEDIUM LEATHER and HARDBACK DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLES IN MAY.

THE "DOCTORED" NEW TESTAMENT

If you have not seen THE "DOCTORED" NEW TESTAMENT, youíve really missed an excellent work which was researched and written by our oldest son, who authored the DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLE footnotes. Youíve heard of Scrivenersí Annotated Greek New Testament (BFT #1670 @ $35.00 Hardback; $45.00 Leather + $4.00 S&H) with the footnotes from the actual WESTCOTT/HORT Greek text. D. A. Waite, Jr. has put the English Bible where the Greek was and he has transcribed the footnotes showing us how and when and where the critical text changes the Greek Words. I like to take this New Testament to church with me and see how the Doctors Westcott and Hort changed things. I like to do my daily devotions with this new work to help me understand what a good Bible is our Authorized Version. ASK FOR The DOCTORED New Testament (#BFT3138 @ $25.00 + $4.00 S&H.)

"But this New Testament was Ďdoctoredí in another, more significant way. Previous revisions of the traditional English New Testament primarily focused on improving the English text and not on changing its Greek Basis. But with the 1881 English Revised Version, a new wind began to blow. Doctors Westcott and Hort (together with the majority of the Revisions Committee) made thousands of New Testament changes based on their new Greek Testament. This new Greek Testament had been significantly Ďdoctoredí with thousands of Ďvarious readingsí from their two favorite Greek manuscripts --Codex Vaticanus (B) and Codex Sinaiticus (Aleph)." (page iii of the Preface).

An Interesting Footnote

It is interesting to notice that the footnote at the bottom of page iii of the Preface to THE DOCTORED NEW TESTAMENT reads: "These change were made over the repeated objections of Dr. Scrivener."

THE SUBJECT OF "LYING" AGAIN

Now back to the subject of LYING that I talked about in my last BFT UPDATE. I canít tell you when Iíve had such response. Some asked me, "Are you talking about me, Mrs. Waite?" Some wrote letters, and others said, "I better do what I said I would do or Mrs. Waite will say I am lying!" It has made me examine my own words and life also. How about you? Then nationally, we have had MARTHA STEWART found guilty of lying. In nearby Philadelphia, a mother discovered her missing child after five or six years. Come to find out, a relative had stolen the little girl as a new-born child, then set the row-house on fire to cover up her crime. The firemen said the child had perished in the flame. All of this was lies. I talk about the subject of LYING on the tape of my radio program called "Lying & The ĎPASSION MOVIEí" (JFW/49 @ $4.00 + S&H). WHY DID ABRAHAM & SARAH LIE TO ABIMELECH (GENESIS 20)?
