Interviews with the Author

Out Of The Cult And Into Grace:

Destructive "Christian" cults, through gross mishandling of bible text, place their members under severe bondage. Often, former cult members who chose a Christian pathway struggle to understand the traditional interpretation of passages in the Christian Bible, because they have been programmed to associate bondage and punishment with specific verses.

Out of the Cult and Into Grace is an examination of the passages in the Christian Bible that most "Christian" cult groups avoid.


I Survived A Cult: Personal Glimpses Of An Exodus:

"People have known these things for years, what does it hurt to believe them anyway?"

This single question led to a difficult journey of self-examination. It is a journey that is all part of an exodus away from one of many doomsday cults. You are invited to take a personal tour through the inside of one such cult, capturing glimpses into the people, the places, and the experiences found inside.

I survived a cult. It's been an exciting journey, and will continue to be one. I've met many new friends, seen some new faces, and have started a new life with new possibilities. New leaders are stepping forward to carry the torches for those of us who began the journey together, and when those leaders grow tired, others will continue.

William Branham: 20th Century Charlatan:

Truth is a fixture, one that cannot be moved. Truth is based upon facts, and facts are based upon solid information. Faith in truth is incredibly easy — as more information presents itself, there is an increase of facts that lie in favor of truth. No matter which viewpoint is taken, if the information is accurate, the end result of researching facts will end in proving truth.

Facts themselves cannot change. They are the solid foundation of truth. If one tries to hide the facts, then one also hides the truth. If one tries to move or change a fact, then one also moves or changes the truth.

When this becomes necessary for faith, then one's faith cannot be considered faith in truth.

Voice of God Recordings - Because He Said So:

In 2012, Voice of God Recordings published a newsletter entitled, "Because He Said So" in an attempt to offer a defense against those who have discovered William Branham's twisting of scripture, failed prophecy, fictional life stories, and other fundamental issues with the material they publish around the world. It appears that this newsletter has been removed from the website after the repercussions of this publication -- cult followers began to notice that the newsletter was not so much of a defense as it was a blatant attack on the Holy Bible.

Irenaeus - Against Branham Heresies:

William Branham named Irenaeus as the "Second Church Age Messenger" in the Masonic hierarchy immediately after Paul. What most followers do not realize is that Irenaeus has a series of writings that explain the Gospel that he stood for and the heresy that he stood against. Irenaeus' book "Against Heresies" seems to be speaking out from the ancient world, pleading with the followers of William Branham. Through the course of the writings, Irenaeus identifies several Gnostic doctrines that were infiltrating the early church and bringing pagan worship into Christianity.

Having been raised in the Message of William Branham, it would seem that Branham read this book by Irenaeus, and then proceeded to preach from the dark side.

William Branham - Cult Awareness Handbook:

There are between two and four million followers in the cult of William Marrion Branham.

The contents of this book contain what the men at the top of the pyramid do not want the followers to see. This handbook, when given to a cult follower, may help begin the deprogramming process.

This handbook contains a quick summary of the issues with cult theology that have been kept hidden from the people for many, many years.

William Branham - The Evening Light:

Jesus speaks of the dreadful events that Zechariah describe. He warned that the time would catch people unaware. Many would be celebrating just as it was in the days of Noah when they were taken by surprise.

John writes in Revelation 10 that there would be a great celebration at the killing of the two witnesses. Jesus said it was also like the days of Lot, when they were celebrating and building. Fire and sulfur caught them unaware.

William Branham said that his ministry was the "Evening Light," yet the Bible says that all of these things must happen before the "Evening Light" comes. Which was correct? Branham? or the Bible?

William Branham - False Teacher:

Sola scriptura is Latin for "by scripture alone." It is the idea the Bible contains all knowledge necessary for salvation and holiness.

This, in fact, was one of our motives to dig deeper. Was William Branham's teaching "sola scriptura?" I truly believe that all teaching should be filtered through the Bible. If it agrees with the Bible, then the teaching is accurate. If not, then we are following a false teaching, as well as a false teacher.

Was William Branham "Sola Scriptura?"

William Branham - Revelation From The Book of Enoch:

William Marrion Branham mentioned Enoch together with Noah over sixty-five times throughout his ministry. Using Enoch’s translation before the eyes of Noah, Branham claimed that Enoch was a type of the “little bride” that would be raptured before “Noah” which was a type of the Jews.

The Problem? None of it is scriptural! Enoch was translated into heaven after 365 years on the earth, long before Noah was born. To create his "rapture theology" using a contemporary Enoch and Noah, William Branham had to alter the Bible text.

The Nativity - As Foretold By Balaam:

Balaam was a diviner, which was condemned in the Laws given to the children of Israel. Deuteronomy 18:10-12 clearly forbids any acts of divination, describing them as something detestable to God, and Leviticus 19:26 says, "You must not practice either divination or soothsaying." Balaam could not prophecy against the children of Israel, but instead decided to spread idolatry into their camp and overtake them by evil rather than by curse.

The exact opposite of this story of Balaam, which is considered one of the greatest evils described in the entire Bible, is the story of the Nativity. The Birth of Jesus Christ is the greatest event in the Bible, and should be revered and respected by all Christians — it is the event that has given them new life.

This book examines the prophecy of Balaam, and how his evil has survived throughout the ages.

Untangling The Truth - Vision Quest:

William Marrion Branham professed that he fasted every Friday throughout his ministry. During healing campaigns, Branham would fast extensively, for three to four days in a row, seeking for God to give him vibrations of the spirit world to seek out and destroy sickness and disease.

He also fasted extensively to seek for visions, and to summon his spirit guide in the cave he went for study and isolation. During these fasts, "angels" would appear to him, and Branham thought these to be an angel of the Lord.

Was it an angel of the Lord, or had Branham summoned an elemental spirit as the ancient Shamans, Sorcerers, Diviners, and Native Americans did? Is this practice scriptural?

Untangling The Truth - No Private Interpretation:

William Branham took the scripture from 2 Peter 1, "No prophecy of scripture comes from someone's own interpretation" and twisted it to mean that only a prophet could interpret the Bible. Though Peter was speaking of the prophetic word that came from God and not from men, Branham taught that Peter was telling his simple followers not to try to study and interpret the Word of God for themselves.

In Branham's theology, the Word of God was hidden from the public, and only a 'prophet' could interpret it. Branham goes as far as to say that Moses was 'a god', and that God was hidden behind the 'veil' of Moses.

Why did Branham not want his followers to study the scriptures?

William Marrion Branaham - The Cult:

This book is an examination of both the religious following of William Branham, and the evolution of religious cults throughout history. While many may feel that this particular cult is unique, it is evident that it has its roots that can easily be identified in the ancient world.

The Failed India Vision Branham Admitted:

William Branham claimed as "Thus Saith The Lord" that his 1951 trip to India would convert three hundred thousand people. After the men in Branham's campaign left him and the trip did not happen until 1954, Branham did not have a successful meeting. He blamed the failure of this vision on himself. Did God really fail, or did William Branham speak presumptuously?

Untangling The Truth - The Original Translation:

Most of the followers of William Branham are strictly “King James Only,” which in of itself is considered a denomination, or group of people sharing the same religious beliefs. Many do not know that the book in their hands is not the original King James Version, several words have been changed and entire books have been removed.

They also do not realize that William Branham was not King James Only himself, and that a several of his teachings came from a Gnostic version of the Bible, mistranslations by a poorly translated Bible, and misunderstandings by Rev. Branham himself.

William Branham - The Legacy:

Even after his untimely death in 1965, the legacy of William Marrion Branham continues. Credited as one of the founding fathers of the Charismatic Movement, William Branham is well known in the faith healing circles.

This book is a review of the legacy of William Branham.

William Marrian Branham: Dogmeat

William Branham was against women using cosmetics, comparing them to Jezebel from the Bible. Did he go too far when he called them "dogmeat?"

Untangling The Truth - I Will Be With You Even In You:

Some have said that the ministry of William Branham got fully started in 1950. He claims to have been a widely known prophet and evangelist since 1933, but 1950 was about the time that history records his ministry coming to a widespread following.

1950 is also the first time that Rev. Branham started introducing subtle changes to the scriptures he quoted. This book examines one of those scriptures, and how it gradually changed over time.

To Drink But Not To Be Drunken:

This book examines drinking wine and alcoholic beverages from a Biblical standpoint, taking the reader on a walk through the Bible as it compares to drinking.

The goal is to make Christians more aware about what the Scriptures say about drinking in general, and remind them to examine their own hearts rather than judging others for their actions.

Untangling The Truth - 1965:

An examination of the ministry of William Marrion Branham, during the last year of his life.

This book takes an evaluation of the teachings by William Marrion Branham and compares it to scriptures from the Bible and recorded history.

Untangling The Truth - The Cloud:

An investigation on the "mysterious cloud" that is described throughout William Branham's ministry.

Untangling The Truth - History:

This is an examination of the historical events in the ministry of William Marrion Branham. He told many stories throughout his ministry, but are they true?

Untangling The Truth - Elijah:

William Branham taught a ministry with a focal point of Elijah, the Old Testament prophet that God sent to Ahab and Jezebel to condemn them for bringing idolatry to the children of Israel. He claimed to be a reincarnation of that same spirit of Elijah using a reference to Malachi 4, applying the scripture to himself.

This book examines the Elijah of the Old Testament and compares it to the William Branham of the 40's, 50's, and 60's. It will walk you through Branham's teachings on Jezebel and her sin, comparing it to what the scriptures and recorded history say.

Wiliam Branham - As It Was In The Days of Noah

Gnostic texts, deemed as heresy long ago, contain many stories that do not align with the Scripture. They contain interesting 'mysteries' that catch the attention of the weaker-minded, but they do not contain Truth. They contain fiction. This fiction, unfortunately, is mistaken for "truth" in the Branham cult churches.
