We also began a new category of articles, entitled History Without the Humbug, its purpose being to counter the deliberate re-writing of history, in this age when history is being re-written by Marxists, liberals, and others. Very rapidly, the truth about the past is being “revised”, and unless this wicked revisionism is resisted, coming generations will be thoroughly indoctrinated with lies and myths presented as “truth”. Already vast damage has been done, and even many adults who lived through the more recent historical events have been so well indoctrinated, and conditioned to think along the “party” line, that they actually believe the lies and myths they have been fed. Very few people think critically anymore. They do not even know how to do so. They simply swallow whatever they are told by their Red, almost-Red, and religious-Red Masters.
It was very thrilling for my wife and I to be able to visit Egypt in 2008. One of the main objectives of Bible Based Ministries is to expose the pagan origins of Popery, which is nothing but the modern version of the ancient Babylonian religion known as Baal worship; and as Baal worship took root and flourished in ancient Egypt and much of Popery can be traced to the rites and ceremonies practiced in Egypt so long ago, the study of ancient Egyptian idolatry is extremely valuable and helpful in exposing Popery. Furthermore, another objective is to defend and uphold the absolute accuracy and reliability of the Holy Scriptures, and there are so many connections between Egypt and the Bible.
We visited the astounding pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. Then we went to the Cairo Museum of Antiquities, a vast, imposing building filled with the immense treasures and wealth of ancient Egypt: gigantic statues of the great pharaohs, mummies, chariots, sarcophagi, etc. It would take months to do justice to this wonderful museum. But what was most wonderful of all was to see the sarcophagus and statues of Queen Hatshepsut, who in all likelihood was the “pharaoh’s daughter” who found the baby Moses in the Nile and raised him as her own son. Our tour guide tried to convince us that Moses dealt with Pharaoh Ramses II, as that is the usually accepted version, but chronologically it is not possible. As we gazed at the queen’s sarcophagus, we thought of Moses and his relationship to this strange woman who had raised him as her own son in the courts of Pharaoh. Had he been present when his powerful foster mother had been lowered into that very sarcophagus we were looking at? It was a tangible and somewhat tender link to Moses, the greatest character of the Old Testament.
Our voyage down the ancient, history-laden Nile was utterly fascinating and informative. It was sobering to reflect that the watery path our ship cut through this great river immediately closed behind us, and was no more. We left no trace, just as all the other hundreds of thousands of vessels that had sailed on this river for thousands of years had left no trace. Today we were there; tomorrow we would be gone, and the Nile would not change for our having been there. Entire empires had risen and fallen on the banks of this river. Man thinks he is so great, so important, but “time, like an ever-rolling stream, bears all its sons away; they fly, forgotten, as a dream dies at the opening day.”
We visited the Philae Temple ruins, dedicated to the usual Egyptian “trinity” of deities (today within Popery they are still worshipped!); Kom Ombo, a temple dedicated to the crocodile god and the falcon god; the Horus Temple.; the Karnak Temple, largest temple complex ever built in the world; and Luxor Temple, with its gigantic statue of Ramses and its obelisk for Queen Hatshepsut. Just as interesting was the pool of Hatshepsut, where the queen would bathe. Perhaps Moses visited that very pool at times. We also visited the temple and burial place of Queen Hatshepsut, an awe-inspiring, magnificent architectural wonder. At Luxor we visited the famed Valley of the Kings, where many of Egypt’s pharaohs are buried, and we went into three different tombs there: those of Ramses I, II and III.
This trip to Egypt was a trip back through time to an age when men who thought they were divine ruled the land, and the river with more history attached to it than any other on earth was the life blood of a kingdom. Times have certainly changed, and yet men’s hearts remain the same: a supposed god-king sits today in the city on seven hills
In 2011 we held a Bible Protestants’ Convention in Johannesburg, South Africa. My morning lecture was entitled To be a Bible Protestant in the 21st Century, and in the afternoon my lecture was entitled Four Centuries of the Protestant Bible (1611-2011): the King James Version vs. Rome. This was followed by a question-and-answer session which lasted for another hour. As 2011 marked the 400th anniversary of the King James Version, the most accurate and faithful version of the Bible in English that has ever been published, and as Bible Based Ministries has always promoted the use of this version and the rejection of all modern “per-versions”, it was most appropriate that we commemorated this wonderful and momentous event in the history of Christianity.
We were able to make all Bible Based Ministries pamphlets available for downloading and printing free of charge from our website. These pamphlets had for many years been a means of providing Christians with concise teaching on many topics: the inspiration of Scripture, the King James Version, the Holy Trinity, Christ’s eternal Sonship, predestination, election, the Roman Catholic institution, the Jesuits, separation from the world, Hollywood’s evil, Bible prophecy, baptism, prayer, modesty in dress, Charismatic error, Church history, parental discipline of children, contending for the faith, the use of computers, feminism, even the subject of Christian couples and contraception.
