William Branham's Holy Ghost Experience:

Each and every one of us that profess Christianity can remember that time when we surrendered our heart and soul to Jesus Christ, made new creatures to serve Him all the days of our lives. For a Christian, this is the greatest milestone in one's life. It is the showdown between good and evil.

William Branham himself expressed the sentiment well, as a time one would never forget. It was a personal experience, one between God and man.

There are those now, after realizing that Branham's supernatural claims, life stories, and prophecies are fiction, that ask the question: "Was the man even saved?" Others, those still trapped in the cult, ask the question, "How can you accuse one of the 'brethren?'"

According to William Branham's own words, he is not saved. This experience, according to Branham, is fundamental in the process of salvation -- and it is an experience that one can never forget. Yet, Branham himself gives multiple, different versions of his own experience. Here are some examples:

* He was converted to Christ in a Baptist church (51-0720)
* He was converted in an old coal shed (59-0815)
* He was converted in a bar room (63-0731)

To the normal Christian, the one who is not fully programmed to accept each and every conflicting version of Branham's many stories, this simply cannot be. If he does not remember, that's no problem -- simply tell his congregation, "I don't remember." If he does remember, the stories will match. The normal Christian realizes that the only possibility can be that Branham himself was lying about his own conversion to Christ, and from that point on, every single word from his mouth is subject to question.

But to the programmed (brainwashed) cult follower, this subject is largely avoided. That which cannot be reconciled is cast aside with an "I don't understand it, brother, but I believe every word the 'prophet' said."

What do you think? Was he lying about his own conversion? Or was he lying when he explained that one could not forget this experience when he, himself, had forgotten?

Can a man who has accepted Christ be so untruthful about every aspect of his life, right down to his own conversion?
