Ruckman Denies the Existence of Greece

PENSACOLA, FLORIDA

He is known as the often rancorous and forceful defender of the King James Version of the Bible. His books and writings regarding the subject of modern translations and other theological topics are controversial to many, inflammatory to some. He states emphatically and unapologetically that the King James Version of the Bible is itself perfect and inspired. He further opposes any efforts to examine either Hebrew or Greek texts in Biblical exegesis and attempt at a modern translation of the Scriptures. Over all Peter S. Ruckman of the Pensacola Bible Institute is no stranger to a rousing fight.

While most of his opponents are not surprised by his dogmatic statements and assertions, his latest statement has left many with their jaws "hitting the floor."

"After much research and prayer it is my conclusion
that there's no such place as Greece and, consequently, there is no such thing as the Greek language." Said Ruckman in his latest book The Conspiracy of the Evangelical Apostates. "Anyone who believes in Greece is part of the Alexandrian Cult seeking to undermine the authority of the Authorized Version of 1611."

Ruckman's book also includes his own "map" of the Mediterranean region which, as he states, gives "irrefutable proof that there's no such place as Greece."

But despite such "evidence" many are not persuaded that Ruckman is correct including Karolous Argyris of Greece.

"I'm not understanding this, is this supposed to be a joke?" Said Argyris. "I don't have time to even acknowledge such things."

Ruckman's assertion serves to support his position that since there is no Greece there can be no Greek language, and thus what we know as "Greek" was, as he states, invented by the "Alexandrian Cult" about 3,500 years ago with the express purpose to undermine the validity of the Authorized Version that would be translated some 3,000 years later in 1611.

"There is no doubt in my mind that this scheme was cooked up in antiquity by Satan to cause confusion and to deceive millions," Ruckman states "and for centuries he's achieved his goal. Now it's time to get back to the real original manuscript, The King James 1611."

Ruckman stated: it's time to get back to the real original manuscript, The King James 1611." So, the 1611 KJ translation is THE real and original manuscript???

Furthermore, if I deny the existence of Ruckman, does that mean he doesn't exist?

Sam,

I have proof Ruckman doesn't exist.

See below, my picture of intelligent KJV Only people...and notice that Ruckman is not there!

Here it is:
















If that's not conclusive, I don't know what is.

Sorry about the pictures today. I'm not sure what happened. They were there this morning when I posted this article.

Just as "anti-KJV" scholars lose their voice, "anti-KJV" blogs lose their photos ;-)

Undoubtedly that's why it happened. How dare I raise a hand against the Lord's anointed.

Great blog here...
I like how you're thinking...

Gordan, thanks for the undeniable, indisputable proof that all intelligent KJV only people are white. I never knew that.

Chris Gates said...

Yeah, I know a few "Ruckmans" here in Louisiana and Texas. They all seem to be highly intelligent individuals. NOT! When you try to talk to them about their views, and they see that they can't "best you" in the argument, they just shut down (or resort to name calling). Tom, you have a cool thing going. I am adding you to my blogroll.

Soli Deo Gloria,
Chris.

Just a thought:

With a hypothetical title like The Conspiracy of the Evangelical Apostates, this article could have been about someone promoting the modern-day "Jesus hoax"/"Gnostic truth"/"Pauline illegitimacy"/yada yada yada blah blah whatever line.

Yea, Greece doesn't exist, just like the LXX (Septuagint) doesn't exist (or didn't in the time of Christ).

Funny, but not too far off the mark.

Apparently you are a stupid individual. Dr Peter S Ruckman of the Pensacola Bible Institute is an upwardly mobile super achiever who is well aquanted with the greek language. His numerous writings testify to the fact that he not only believes in Greece but he also believes in the hidden power of CHI. Read the Bible my friend, learn of CHI, learn of vampires from Jupiter, learn of greys, etc. etc.

Saved Christian said...

How dare you insult this man of God! He's doing his work as a christian and he's doing a very well job if I do say so myself. You must have never have read the TRUE Word of God or you would know he's telling the truth. Get yourself a copy!!!

P.S. Ruckman, Jr. said...

Looks like the Old Man was ahead of the curve! :-)
