The Bible For Today Update

Yvonne Sanborn Waite, D. Hum.

July 2007


THESE ARE PERILOUS TIMES!
CHRISTIANS MUST BE VIGILANT

"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, AND ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS, Where is the good way, and walk therein. . ."

(Jeremiah 6:16-a)

A HORNETSí NEST STIRRED UP

It seems that by his being in GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA, DR. D. A. WAITE stirred up a hornetsí nest! How was he to know?All PASTOR KENNETH RAINEY (the pastor of WAYSIDE BAPTIST CHURCH--2091 Howlong Avenue, Greenville, SC 29609), DID WAS STAND FOR THE OLD PATHS WHEN HE INVITED DR. WAITE TO TEACH ON THE DEFENSE OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE AND ITS UNDERLYING WORDS. Then, it seems, that the churchís song leader, who was a retired pastor with close ties to BOB JONES UNIVERSITY, got shook up! He influenced others to leave the church--and most of them fled in a hurry. They were there one Sunday, as usual, and gone the next. Some who didnít immediately flee soon left also. Who would have thought that faithful church members would succumb to such a whispering campaign? Well, I know, from personal experience, how that can be, donít you? But praise the Lord, PASTOR RAINEY stood firm in his Bible version convictions and God gave the church excellent meetings that week. Have you seen any of the WAYSIDE CONFERENCE on the Internet? (GO TO OUR BibleForToday.org FRONT PAGE and CLICK on the WAYSIDE BAPTIST CHURCH BAR or order BFT #3317DVD @ $15+ $4 S&H.)

"For it was not an enemy that reproached me, then I could have borne it:

neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me;

then I would have hid myself from him.

But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.

We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company."

(Psalm 55: 12-13)

THE INCONSISTENCY OF BOB JONES UNIVERSITY

When my husband teaches THE DEFENSE OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE & ITS UNDERLYING TEXTS, he uses many power-point pictures. Usually, within that presentation, he does mention the inconsistency of Bob Jones Universityís position on the King James Bible--but he usually doesnít make a meal of it. But, in May 20-23 of Ď07, some of the Greenville BJU friends feared the "meal," and took off with as much slander as they could muster against Dr. Waite, his character, and his teaching. You see, just in case you donít know it, there used to be a rule--and it might still be,--that the King James Bible was the only version that was to be used on the BJU auditorium platform. But in the classroom--especially the Greek and Bible study classrooms, it is a different story. In fact, there was a sign on that public pulpit that said so--at least it used to be there.

When our daughter was a student at BJU in the middle Ď70's, she had an occasion to be on that platform and saw the sign with her own eyes. It bewildered her somewhat for in one of her classes, her teacher had instructed her, and others in the class, to get the NEW AMERICAN STANDARD version of the Bible to read, study, and memorize. It seemed inconsistent! It was a shock to her to be asked to change Bibles, for she already knew hundreds of Bible verses from the KING JAMES BIBLE. To her it was a double standard: the NASV recommended in the classroom but forbidden on the public platform of the University. Perhaps now in 2007 that warning version sign is no longer found on that public podium with the recent change in Presidents.

GETTING BACK TO THE HORNETSí NEST!

What a surprise for PASTOR RAINEY when faithful members of his church requested him to un-invite Dr. Waite! The pastor was told that my husband was a dangerous man, that he was a heretic, and that he preached false doctrine. Can you imagine that? The truth was that my husbandís beliefs about the validity of the Authorized Version and the

corruption of the NESTLE /ALAND & UNITED BIBLE SOCIETIES texts--patterned after WESTCOTT & HORTís 1881 Greek Text--were Pastor Raineyís beliefs, too. He had come to the same conclusions (as Dr. Waite) when Pastor Rainey was in Seminary studying Greek and Hebrew. He didnít even know Dr. Waite then, and never heard of the DEAN BURGON SOCIETY.

"The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords."

(Psalms 55:21)

WAYSIDE BAPTIST WAS A "DAVID"

WITH FIVE SMOOTH STONES & A SLINGSHOT

THANK YOU FOR PRAYING FOR THOSE GREENVILLE MEETINGS that were held May 20-23, 2007 at WAYSIDE BAPTIST. Wayside Baptist Church is only about four-years old. It was a small "David" church with five smooth stones and a slingshot. Because of the unexpected in-house opposition to his ministry, Dr. Waite refuted more than usually the anti-KJB teachings of BJU in regard to their approval of the Critical Greek Text and their opposition to the Textus Receptus Greek Text underlying the King James Bible. Also because of this criticism, we had our son bring his recording and "streaming" equipment. (Usually Dr. Waite and I travel alone.) Daniel had wires all over that building, beaming the defense of the KJB message around the world. The QUESTION & ANSWER periods after each teaching session were surprising and good. People from every nook and cranny of the country and the world tuned in. Many sent us E-mails during the meetings.

WHY WE STARTED A HOME CHURCH

Sundays: 10:00 A.M., 1:30 P.M.; Thursdays 8:00 P.M. (Eastern)

"THIS IS THE WAY, WALK YE IN IT!"

When Dr. Waite started our HOME CHURCH, he had no idea there was a national or global organized "home church" movement. He only knew that it was what he had to do. He felt it was the Lordís will. He felt that as if God were saying to him, "This is the way walk ye in it!" So, in October of 1998, we took all the furniture out of our living room and filled it with "church" chairs and purchased a pulpit and sound system! We already had a grand piano and an organ.

A NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH IN OUR HOUSE

I donít know what others do in their "home" churches, but we are a traditional church in every way. I PERSONALLY believe that we are more of a NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH than many who meet in a church building. Today, there is such a straying from the "old paths," the old ways, and the knowledge of God that you may be asking, "What are the old paths?"

First of all, meeting in a house is very "OLD PATH"! The first Christians met in houses. We read of this in the church history book called THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES. Those early Christians did not have church buildings or educational building, not alone gymnasiums and dining halls. Simply: those who loved Jesus Christ gathered together in small groups in rooms where families loved and lived.

A HUMBLING GATHERING

They also gathered by the riverside or in the synagogues for discussions. They "broke bread" together from house to house remembering Christís death, burial, and resurrection. They sang songs and Psalms--praising God together without worship leaders and paid musicians. They heard the WORDS OF GOD, expounded by the apostles and the elders who loved it, as well as loving the One who guided the Holy Men of Old to write it. There was a humbling about such a gathering. It was expressed in the washing of the guestsí feet, by the holy kiss, the quietness of the women, and the boldness of the preachers, and no passing of an offering plate!

GODíS WORDS REPLACED BY MANíS THOUGHTS

Where has such simplicity gone TODAY? Where has the reverence for the Words of God gone TODAY? It has been replaced by peopleís own thoughts. The meaning of a passage has been replaced by the telling of a story, or the explaining away of this Word or that Word from the text.

TO TEACH GODíS WORDS

So when Dr. Waite began our HOME CHURCH, it was to teach GODíS WORDS and what they meant. Not only what was meant for us today, but what was meant down through the centuries from the days of Moses on Mt. Sinai, to the days of Paul on Mars Hill, to our very day, the age in which we live!

NUMBERS NOT OUR GOAL

A CONSISTENCY OF BIBLE TEACHING

Iíve learned much watching my husband pastor our BIBLE FOR TODAY BAPTIST CHURCH in our home here at 900 Park Avenue. It would take pages to tell. Iíve watched my husband be steadfast in his teaching and preaching of the Words of God every Sunday. It does not matter to him if many are here or few, he continues to prepare, preach, and teach. GREAT NUMBERS ARE NOT HIS GOAL. There has been a consistency in his message. Iíve watched him "pastor" our Internet attenders more than any pastor ever pastored me. Iíve seen him trust God for numbers. Iíve seen him believe God for the finances as books are written, missionaries are paid, radio bills are paid, and supplies are purchased. Some months the pot is dried up and other months it has overflowed. There is never too much. There is always a need. Yet, there is always enough. We stand amazed and thankful! The Lord must touch the hearts and pocketbooks rather than preaching about the offering plate.

HARD LESSONS LEARNED

O there have been heartaches! Families do not always get along. Our church family has been no different. This was a hard lesson for me to learn. I honestly thought everyone attending our home church loved me and each other. I felt like I was their "mother" or a very good "friend." How surprised was the truth. It was then I realized that our church was no different from other churches with stained glass windows and pipe organs. It was then that I realized that I must keep my eyes on the Lord and not on people or their opinions of me.

WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT OF THE SCOPE & REACH

OF THE BIBLE FOR TODAY BAPTIST CHURCH?

SO WHAT IS THE ANSWER TO MY QUESTION? "Why did Dr. Waite start a HOME CHURCH?" Well, it was one Fatherís day nine years ago after hearing a typical "fatherís day" message at the church where we were members. I guess it was one too many topical messages for my husband! We were sitting in the parlor with our son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter. When out-of-the-blue, Dr. Waite said, "I think I should start a church!" I do not know all the thinking that went on in THIS HEART EXPRESSION. The conviction came and grew. After prayer and thought, we called together anyone who was not already in a church to gather in our living room. That was the beginning of VERSE BY VERSE TEACHING at 900 Park Avenue, Collingswood, NJ. Scores of people have come and sat in our church room. Some have stayed. More have left. As of this date, we have 1,808 messages with a total of 1,464,447 "total page views" over SermonAudio.com. There is an untold group that listens to our Internet Videos of our services on their computers. So far, his teachings have found themselves placed in seven verse-by-verse preaching books. This and the Internet was a complete surprise to us when we opened our doors that first Sunday morning in 1998. Only thanksgiving and praise can be ours as we marvel at His leading in our lives in this church ministry here at THE BIBLE FOR TODAY.

As I am finishing up this letter to you, news has come that unmarried pregnant Jessie Davisís body was found in a shallow grave in Summit County, Ohio. The father of her two year-old child has been arrested. He has been arraigned on two counts. Jessie lived in Canton, Ohio. I remember Canton well. It is in STARK County. When I was a child, I lived in a childrenís hospital in Cuyahoga County. My parents lived in Canton. Daddy was a manager for a sales company there. They had rented a house, had a garden, and a room waiting for me. Unexpectedly, word came that if my parents did not move back to Cuyahoga County, I could no longer be at that hospital. (This was during the depression years .) So my parents had to move back to the county where I was, leaving his managerial job, his home, his ripening garden, & the room they had ready for my return. So I remember Canton!

If you recall, President William McKinley, our 25th president, was assassinated in Buffalo, New York and was buried in Canton. Iíve visited his grave and seen the McKinley National Monument twice. It is one of my childhood memories. Jack Parr, Marilyn Manson, and Mother Angelica are from Canton which is the home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

In the recent years, my husband and I were in Canton giving THE TRIBUTE TO FANNY CROSBY in a church there.

May you have a good summer. Take a few minutes off from constant working and enjoy Godís beautiful creation. Tell those you love that you love them. Life is very short.

In Godís wise care,

Yvonne S. Waite (for Dr. Waite, too)
