In-Sight Journal Interview with John Collins on William Marrion Branham - Part Three:

John Collins is an Author, and the Webmaster of Seek The Truth. He discusses: false claims and lies of William Marrion Branham; central false claims by Branham about Christianity; the central false claims by Branham about the role of men and women within the church; the central false claims about the nature of the world and the nature of Christ by Branham (compared to mainstream interpretations of the Bible and the narrative of the life of Christ); the main lies by Branham to the followers of The Message; the peripheral but noteworthy false claims by Branham made about the Bible; the peripheral but noteworthy false claims by Branham made about Christianity; the peripheral but noteworthy false claims by Branham made about the nature of the world and the nature of Christ by Branham (compared to mainstream interpretations of the Bible and the narrative of the life of Christ); the peripheral but noteworthy lies by Branham to the followers of The Message; and the single false claim or lie that tends to be the most powerful in deconverting members from the cult or cult-like community. ISSN 2369-6885

"William Branham falsely claimed that the Biblical stories of Enoch and Noah intersected, and that Enoch lived five hundred years until the days of Noah. To the casual listener, this is a simple mistake. The Bible states that Enoch was taken by God after 365 years and is very clear on the timeline from Enoch to Noah. According to Genesis chapter 5, Enoch fathered Methuselah at age 252, Methuselah fathered Lamech at age 187, and Lamech fathered Noah at age 182 – placing Noah's birth approximately seventy years after Enoch left the earth.
Those who are familiar with Branham's indoctrination strategy, however, recognize this 'simple mistake' as one of the primary building blocks for a destructive cult. Branham used this 'mistake' to claim that Noah symbolically represented mainstream Christianity, while Enoch symbolically represented the 'Bride', which he considered to be his 'Message' cult. This parallel was used by Branham to later claim that mainstream Christianity must suffer while his cult would escape unharmed before the End of Days."
