Cyrus Ingerson Scofield

"The Final Apostasy," began with a small very wealthy and determined European political movement. It had a dream, and the American churches stood in its way.

The World Zionist movement had plans to acquire a homeland for all Jews worldwide, even though most were far from homeless, and many did not want another home. World Zionists wanted a specific property that American Christians called "the Holy Land."

These Zionists read "Democracy in America" and other journals of many of America's churches which proclaimed Jerusalem as a Holy site of all Christiandom. America's traditional churches in the 19th Century would never stand for a Zionist occupation of Jesus' homeland.

World Zionist leaders initiated a program to change America and its religious orientation. One of the main tools used to accomplish this goal was an obscure and malleable Civil War disserter named Cyrus I. Schofield and a venerable, world respected European book publisher - The Oxford University Press.

Cyrus Scofield was a small time politician and career criminal. In 1873, at 29 years of age, he was forced to resign his position as a District Attorney because of crooked financial transactions, that include accepting bribes, stealing political contributions, and securing bank notes by forging signatures.

A heavy drinker, Scofield abandoned his first wife and two daughters to marry his second wife while becoming an ordained minister as divorce proceedings lingered. Scofield became a leader in dispensational premillennialism. The Scofield Reference Bible is the most influential statement of dispensational premillennialism or Zionism.

German "high criticism" of the bible was leading many toward emphasis on a social gospel instead of on literal acceptance of miracles and supernatural events described.

A few theologians rejected this migration, and insisted on certain basic elements of Christian faith that included the virgin birth, the divinity of Christ, the bodily resurrection, the trinity, and the literal second coming of Christ, among other elements.

This scholarly backlash against the social gospel and higher criticism might not have gotten as much traction if it were not for the investment of Lyman Stewart, president of Union oil, in the publication of a series of booklets, which he distributed to any minister in the US who was interested.

The social gospel would call a rich man like Stewart to sell all he had and enter by the needle's eye. But the Zionist vision allowed him easier access, perhaps, and gave others a very hierarchical vision of things: Submit and be saved, fail to submit and be damned.

Lyman Stewart was a "dispensationalist" who believed Jesus would return and reign from Jerusalem and the purported promises to Israel would be fulfilled.

Scofield's notes teach premillennialism and dispensationalism, a theology that was systematized in the early nineteenth century by the Anglo-Irish clergyman John Nelson Darby (a Plymouth Brethren exclusivist who like Scofield had been trained as a lawyer). Dispensationalism emphasizes the distinctions between the New Testament Church and ancient Israel of the Old Testament. Scofield believed that between creation and the final judgement there are seven distinct eras of God's dealing with man and that these eras are a framework around which the message of the Bible could be explained. It was largely through the influence of Scofield's notes that dispensational premillennialism became influential among fundamentalist Christians in the US, and these notes became a significant source for popular religious writers such as Hal Lindsey.

The scheme was to alter the Christian view of Zionism by creating and promoting a pro-Zionist subculture within Christianity.

Cyrus Ingerson Scofield's role was to re-write the King James Version of the Bible by inserting Zionist-friendly notes in the margins, between verses and chapters, and on the bottoms of the pages.

The Oxford University Press printed the Zionist revised bible - the Scofield Reference Bible. With limitless advertising and propaganda, it became one of the best selling Bibles in America and remained so for nearly a century.

The Scofield Reference Bible was not to be just another translation, subverting minor passages a little at a time. Scofield produced a revolutionary book that radically changed the context of the King James Version. It was designed to create a subculture around a new worship icon, the modern State of Israel, a state that did not yet exist, but which was already on the drawing boards of the committed, well-funded authors of World Zionism.

Cyrus Ingerson Scofield's support came from a movement that took root around the turn of the century, supposedly motivated by disillusionment over what it considered the stagnation of the mainline American churches. Some of these "reformers" were later to serve on Scofield's Editorial Committee.

Cyrus Ingerson Scofield imitated a chain of past heretics and rapturists, most of whose credibility fizzled over their faulty end times prophesies.

Scofield's Bible injects a very weird "End Times" prophecy into Christianity best termed Christian Zionism. Because of Scofield's altered Bible, many Christians today believe that Jesus will return to save his followers from the "end times" (The Rapture), after Israel is established, and that "God will bless those who bless Israel."

"In every human dispute we look for the oppressor and the oppressed and we try to determine who is right and who is wrong. I'm doing that now. EVERYTHING I read and access tells me that Zionism is a scourge and I am an Ashkenazi Jew, a Khazar by birth. So believe me, it has not been comforting to walk down this path. These are my people and I am beginning to believe that they're criminals, one and all." - Jeff Prager

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.





This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
