I'm reading The Trillion Dollar Conspiracy right now,
a pretty good conspiracy summation, I think. I've been
looking into this, and while I'll admit I'm susceptible here,
many or most of the things we might label "conspiracy"
end up being common knowledge to others.

Re: List the Cultic doctrinal errors of Branhamism

Conspiracies have gone on since the beginning of time.

People have always done things to deceive others in order to have their way.
Saul conspired to kill David.
Jezebel conspired to kill Naboth for his vineyard.
Haman conspired to have Mordecai hanged because he bowed not to Haman as he passed by.
The High Priests and Pharisees conspired to kill Christ because they feared that the people would believe on Him and the Romans would come and take away both their place and the nation.
The Bible is full of things people have done to one another in order to subject them to vain and blind obedience to man instead of God.

The problem with conspiracies is that they are hard to prove. Who is going to knowingly leave evidence when someone(s) carry out an act of conspiracy against others?

Well, if you approach it as a civil case,
on the preponderance of the evidence...
common sense will tell you fluoride is
not meant to be drunk, imo, but seeing
the provenance of adding it to water sure helps.

Re: List the Cultic doctrinal errors of Branhamism

A couple years ago two friends of mine drove over to Jeffersonville, IN to visit Bro. Branham's memorial marker and Branham Tabernacle where he preached.

Re: List the Cultic doctrinal errors of Branhamism

1. SerpentMAN [serpent seed doctrine as per Bill Branham] "missing link."
2. Seven Church "ages."
3. Seven angels [men/messengers] to the Seven "ages."
4. Dates for the Seven "ages."
5. Gentile "bride."
6. Wise and Foolish Virgins referencing the gentile church caste system.
7. Three Arrivals of Messiah
8. Five Arrivals of Elijah
9. Appearing and Coming Distinguished [Darbyism]
-----
10. Restoration of the Word [prophet to the church in the last days].
11. Created Jesus
12. No judgment of the prophet.
13. No eldership in his home church.
14. One man rule.
15. Eve an incubator, not the Mother of Yeshua.
16. Vindication theory as referencing himself.


These and more were errors new and old. Most had a track record from previous ministries and labors of others. Darby, Larkin, C. T. Russell, Joseph Smith, Kaballahism, Jewish lore, American mountain legends, KKK, Christian Identity Movement, etc, etc.

In effect, it was a collection of ancient myths, Americana, personal revelations and no doubt, a sincereity that gave the errors its cutting edge gathering in the gullible, the fearful, the ignorant and even, and I say this with qualification, the morally perverse.

It was not in keeping in many ways with the Apostolic Doctrines of the Apostles and that is what counts in my view. Not what Brother XX said in 1906 or 1895 or what Brother Bill thought in 1963 in the alleged, "Revelation of the 7 Seals," etc. Most of which was lifted from the works of other men foisted off on his people [pre internet] as "hot off the griddle" manna from Glory. It wasn't.

Even so, come soon Lord Jessus.

So... his marker is a pyramid...

Let me adjust my tin-foil cap a bit...

Looks like Branham wasn't the only claimant to being the 'Laodicean Messenger!'

"Yes, isn’t it interesting that Charles Taze Russell, founder of the Jehovah's Witnesses, also has the words “The Laodicean Messenger” on his headstone? Just like Branham! "

/ Jared. I'm in a Christian reformed church right that I would describe as Calvinist light. Actually its far more liberal than its sister churches in the denomination. Some parts of TULIP don't agree with my spirit. Alas, my spirit isn't God. http://sacramentocitylife.com

The seed (zera’) of the serpent in this reference can mean “child” as some insist, but traditionally means fruit – the evil effect of the evil entering of the knowledge of good and evil into the earth. It is about spiritual wickedness on the earth.
(A spiritual example: Romans 16:20: And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly)
The emphasis in this verse is about the seed of the woman (the Lord Jesus Christ) bruising – establishing dominion over - the serpent’s (Satan’s) head.
If the emphasis is the serpent’s seed, why is the seed of the serpent not being bruised by the seed of the woman? The text specifically says that the serpent’s head would be bruised. The seed of the serpent has to do with wicked attributes, tendencies, fruit, as it were. This isn’t a straw man argument. You have to KNOW that the seed of the serpent in this verse is literally human progeny in order to believe it. But you can’t KNOW it. You conjecture and theorize and eventually interpolate something into the text that Christendom rejects.
The text refers to Satan as a snake, and some will say he disguised (transformed) himself from a horizontal snake into a vertical snake., but the reference in II Cor 11 is speaking about lying prophets and apostles that twist the word to make it palatable even as the serpent did with Eve. If you wish to believe that a serpent (nachash – a snake) had sexual relations with Eve (Ishshah – a woman) you are free to believe it, but I will bet a dollar to a donut that without Branham you wouldn’t even be talking about it right now.


Ge 3:22
¶ And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever
Is there a chance, and this is just about one little tiny part of this, that the head of the serpent isn't the literal head, but the head of the serpent, meaning satan. Like the head of man is Christ, and the head of woman is man? I know this is a little off of the trail, it just came to me as I was reading. Does it say that the serpent IS satan?
