Rick Wiles Cannot be a Christian

I can’t believe that I had to write that as the title. But, what I heard over the past few days, leads me to make that statement.

I would love to believe that he has just gone insane, or that his hatred of the Jews and Israel has consumed his mental faculties. But, I can’t make that assumption. The evidence from his own mouth condemns him, and I do not have any other way to think about this.

No follower of Christ deliberately lies about another Christian – especially, in an attempt to deceive other Christians.

I certainly welcome your thoughts on this, once I have laid out what I have seen and heard.

Rick Wiles Cannot be a Christian

Rick Wiles Cannot be a Christian – The ShockCast

[NOTE: Video and audio lose sync at the six minute mark. – JL]

Here’s the link for the MP3:



As is often the case, I make plans to write about one thing, and God directs me to go in a completely different direction. I had wanted to write about the ‘memo’ released by the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. And, you would probably prefer to read about my take on corruption in Washington D.C. and in the institutions of American government.

I certainly would prefer to write about that, than about the insanity that I’m about to describe. In fact, it’s so insane, that I just do not understand how any of this is possible.

How could Rick Wiles lie like this?

The dishonesty in the two videos that I’m about to show you, is so putrid and so incredible… we either need to believe that Rick has gone insane, or he is attempting to deliberately deceive the Christians watching his program. And, deliberate deception is the hallmark of Jesuit subterfuge, or the lack of salvation. (I lump them together) And, I don’t have a third possibility.

If I had a third possibility, I would certainly include it. In fact, if anyone could provide a third option, I would be grateful. I just do not understand how else someone like Rick could do what he has done this week.

What did Rick do?

He lied.

About other Christians.

With full knowledge that he was lying.

And, he didn’t do it just once. He did it constantly, in two half hour segments. And, he lied in ways that are easy to disprove. The lies were gigantic. In fact, they were so big, that they could only be classified as:

The Big Lie

I wrote about that concept here, two weeks ago:

The Big Lie and Big Liars

That was all about a kind of deliberate deception that is so big, that people just can’t believe that anyone would lie like that. In fact, the success of The Big Lie comes from its sheer size.

A lie just can’t be that big, right?

I’m sorry, but it can. In fact, we have examples everywhere, of lies so big and so impossible, that people believe them. And, this website and newsletter (and now YouTube channel) is all about exposing The Big Lie, wherever I find it.

But, let me stop talking about that, and jump right into the Rick Wiles version of The Big Lie.

Oh, and you will notice, as I progress through these deliberate lies by Rick Wiles, that I become more and more aware that he is not a Christian, and cannot be a Christian.

Rick’s Challenge To Christian Zionists

A Challenge to Christian Zionists

YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/2RiwqTjy_eo

On Tuesday, a Christian friend of ours, who is an Israeli, sent a message to Mrs. Little talking about this broadcast. He had been a supporter of Rick Wiles, personally and gave what he could to Rick’s ministry, from his meager salary. And, he was shocked at what Rick said here. He said that he will never support Rick ever again.

( כל הכבוד, אחי )

Well, he wasn’t the only one to mention this, so I reluctantly set about to listen to this broadcast. Little did I know that I would laugh so hard at these lies, that I would actually suffer some asthma.

And yes, that happens every time that I laugh too hard.

Rick Wiles has either gone insane or Catholic – or both.

So, what follows is a blow-by-blow analysis that I wrote, as I watched Rick say what he said.

The Blow-By-Blow Account


I can’t believe it. Rick Wiles dares to spread even MORE lies about other Christians. And to even lie against the Bible itself.

Oh, and he gives a big whopper. A new one. He claims that the Pretribulation Rapture Theory was created so that the Jews could create Christian Zionism.

Whoa, Rick. That was an impressive lie. I haven’t heard a lie THAT big, since… well …since I saw one of your previous videos. I actually laughed when he said this. Hatred has been eating away at his mind.

I’m not even at the nine minute mark, and he’s been throwing out one big-whopper-of-a-lie, about every 90 seconds – or less. This has almost become a comedy. I’m actually laughing at how incredible these lies are.

In fact, the lies are coming in so fast, that I can’t keep track. I can’t even address even a fraction of them. But, here’s a real whopper of a tale:

Did you know that the State of Israel is giving money to American churches?


Wait! I never got my check! Where’s my check from the Israeli government?! I want my check!


OW! I hit facepalmed myself so hard that I hurt myself.

Rick and Burkhart have gone insane. In fact, I haven’t seen this much insanity in one place since… well …the Catholics spoke on something like this. In fact, if you dressed Rick and Burkhart up in Roman Catholic robes, everyone would assume that this was something straight out of the Vatican.

Is this the Catholic Comedy Club?

When I mentioned this to Mrs. Little, she asked if he has ever ‘bashed’ Catholics. And, I don’t ever remember him doing that.

This is speculation on my part, but is it possible that Rick is somehow Catholic?

Then, he said that the Israeli government is seizing the bank accounts of Christians in Jerusalem.

Wait. WHAT?

Should I call my pastor in Jerusalem and ask if Jerusalem Assembly’s bank account has been seized?

I had to laugh when I heard this one. And, I did. This was so shocking, I can hardly believe it. And, then he explained that Catholic churches and Greek Orthodox churches were the targets. And, I’m afraid that I actually have no problem with their bank accounts being taken, if they are going to be given to all of their victims.

Then I did a check. Yes, there are bank accounts being seized, because some Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches owe a huge amount of money in back taxes – which they have refused to pay. You may not realize this but the Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches in Jerusalem own lots of land and have extensive, for-profit operations. And, these churches and organizations are flush with cash. Lots of cash.

Please remember that the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) has been the enemy of Christ and has murdered our brothers and sisters in Christ for more than a thousand years. And, I am shocked that Rick is actually siding with the Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches.

Should we start calling Rick a Catholic?

It really does look like Rick is following Kenneth Copeland into Catholicism.

Should we be looking for Vatican money flowing into Rick’s accounts?

Should we start wondering where Rick got all of his equipment and the money to pay for all of his new staff?

Just look at how slick and expensive his operation has become.

Rick, did the Pope give you a bunch of money?

Someone sent me a message and told me to follow the money. Well, Rick is flush with cash, but it would take a lot of work to find out who has given Rick so much money. If someone can track down Rick’s new source of cash, I would welcome that.

Then Rick quotes the Bible, but uses it to claim that the Israeli government is pushing to acquire all the land of the Middle East, from the Nile, to the Euphrates. I am perplexed by this bizarre and foolish claim. He certainly has no proof of this.

I lived in Israel and have friends and family that live there, right now. None of us have seen ANYONE, except some fringe and radical nutjobs claim that this is a good idea. This certainly is NOT the goal of the Israeli government.

Then, he says that God did not bring Israel back to their land. He says that The Devil did it. Now, that’s an amazing proclamation.

How do you know this, Rick?

Are you sure that you aren’t blaspheming God?


He then goes on to claim that Israel is going to ‘eradicate the Christians out of Jerusalem’. For my Christian readers in Jerusalem:

Are any of you being driven out?

Is there even a HINT of this?



Rick, your lies are getting more and more ridiculous.

Then, he claims that there’s a SYNAGOGUE under the Temple Mount


That is beyond insane. No Jew would EVER even THINK about having a synagogue under the Temple Mount. Israel would never ALLOW a synagogue under the Temple Mount.

I haven’t laughed this hard since… well …I don’t remember. I think that I even cackled. It really is the Catholic Comedy Club.

And, I’m just at the 17 minute mark. There are 11 and a half minutes left. I’m wondering if there could be any more whoppers to top what he has just told.

(resume play)

Oh wait. He claims that Israel is trying to overthrow King Abdullah of Jordan.


Israel saved the Hashemite Kingdom in 1971, when it mobilized the IDF to stop Syria from invading Jordan during the Palestinian uprising.

And now Israel wants to take out the Jordanian Kingdom?

I now have a bit of an asthma attack. That happens every time that I laugh too hard. My Dad – who lives in Jerusalem – has the same problem. In fact, I’ll be calling him and Mom tomorrow (Lord willing). I’ll be fine, but Rick won’t be.

Then, to make things even worse, he just had to do another ripping out of Revelation 20. I wasn’t expecting him to do that, but he did. According to Rick, when Jesus returns, the Earth burns up.

Ripping out Revelation 20 leads to Hell, Rick:

And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

– Revelation 22:19

I’m struck by something else. He won’t mention one word about the Biblical reasons for why Christian Zionists believe the way that they do.

Not. One. Word.

And yes, the question of why we believe the way that we do was asked. But, he couldn’t even say a single reason or principle that we are taking from the Bible. Not one.

And, he knows the reasons. And THAT means that he is lying. This is not self-deception. This is deliberate, straight-up lying.

You could make a case that he was merely deceived, but after refusing to admit that the Christian Zionists believe that the Bible talks about the Return of Israel… well …I can only assume that he is deliberately choosing to lie.

If he had been honest, he would have admitted, at the very least, that the Christian Zionists see proof in the Bible. He didn’t need to agree with what we/they call proof. He just needed to admit that we see proof.

He knew what that proof was and is, but he would rather lie.

Oh, and now Rick says that the Scofield Bible was a Zionist plot.

Will wonders never cease?

(My asthma is getting worse. I’m laughing too hard.)

Now, Rick and Burkhart are claiming that we believe that Jesus failed on the Cross.

Wow. When I see the number of lies in this broadcast, I can only think about what I wrote about two weeks ago:


My Analysis

Okay, that was the ‘blow-by-blow’ account. And, that video was pretty awful to watch. But, let me do some analysis.

Everyone knows that I have big disagreements with some Christians, but I don’t lie about them. I don’t knowingly make statements that I know to be untrue. I always do my best to accurately represent what someone else believes, no matter how much I disagree with them. And, if I get something wrong, I am willing to admit to it and apologize. And, I have.

The bottom line is that objection to what someone believes does not give me the excuse to lie about the person that I disagree with. And, I have ALWAYS lived by that rule. And, this video offers proof that Rick does NOT live by that rule. And, I am struggling to understand how someone can be a Christian, while lying about what people believe.

Rick isn’t stupid. No one can accuse Rick of ignorance or stupidity. So, I can only conclude that he is deliberately lying.

How can a Christian deliberately lie like this?

I just don’t understand it. I really don’t. And, I don’t want to.

(Although, later on, you will see that I DO begin to understand.)

How is this possible?

Worse, he lies about the Christians IN Israel. He lies about my pastor and my church. He lies about me. He lies about those that I care a great deal about. And, he lies about the Palestinian Christians.

The lies are deep and wide.

Rick’s hatred of Israel is so great, that he is blinded to the truth. No, worse than that. He is blinded to facts that are easy to prove. You can walk into ANY Christian Zionist church and PROVE that he is engaging in false accusation.

You can visit Israel and see that he is lying. It is pathetically easy to prove. So easy that I am surprised that Rick would lie like this.

It is one thing to lie by twisting words and facts. Even though I hate such subtle lying, such lies allow me to treat the liar with some modicum of respect. But lying like THIS, leaves me shocked and unable to extend ANY respect to such a bald-faced liar. And, I actually WANT to respect everyone, including those who lie to me. But, it’s hard, when the lies are so incredibly obvious.

Please, if you are going to lie to me, have enough decency to be subtle about it. Obvious lies are an insult to all of us.

The Big Lie

Unfortunately, as in my ‘blow-by-blow’ account above, I detect something that is straight out of Hitler’s playbook, a ‘playbook’ written by a Catholic priest:

The Big Lie.

From Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf

That book was written by a Roman Catholic priest, and I wrote about ‘The Big Lie’, here:


Whether he knows it or not, Rick is following in Hitler’s footsteps. He is making big statements that are so awful – and so outlandish – that the gullible and unwary will believe them, because they are so big. And, just like ‘The Big Lie’ – even when you disprove it, the taint of this lie still lingers around.

For someone to claim to be a Christian, while following Hitler’s Roman Catholic strategy of ‘The Big Lie’, is horrifying to see. In fact, it’s so awful, that you find yourself speculating about the true identity of such a ‘Big Liar’. I don’t want to speculate about the true nature of what lies underneath that pseudo-Christian exterior of Rick Wiles, but I think that we might need to.

If Rick is a secret Catholic, we need to expose that.

But, there is one thing that does not need any kind of speculation. There is one thing that we can say about ANYONE and EVERYONE who shows the same characteristics that Rick Wiles demonstrates:

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

– Matthew 7:20

Those are the words of Jesus, and I see bitterness and poison in Rick’s fruit. It is there for all to see. And, those who eat of this fruit will be poisoned and fall.

Those who have poisoned fruit are tools of Satan – BY DEFINITION. Hopefully, they aren’t followers of Satan. Hopefully, they aren’t completely dead. But, just like Rick, ANYONE can become a tool of Satan. ANYONE.

Tool Of Satan

To my sorrow, Rick Wiles has become a tool of Satan.

That first lie that he told in this video is all that you need to know. And, it’s not the first time that he’s told this lie. He has repeated it over and over and over. Many have come to him and proved to him that it was a lie, but he persists.


When someone like Rick persists in a lie like this, when many brothers in Christ have shown that he is wrong, there can be only one conclusion and only one possible action:

To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

– 1 Corinthians 5:5

He has repeatedly brought false accusation against brothers and sisters in Christ. He has been asked to stop and repent of this grave sin, but he refuses. Therefore, as a member in good standing, within the Body of Christ, I call for Rick to be cast out of our assembly. I call that he be treated according to Paul’s prescription in Corinthians.

Furthermore, the above verse is part of what I mean when I seek the wrath of God in someone’s life. When someone speaks in such sin and lives according to the flesh – abusing the Body of Christ – there is a need to repent. Without such repentance, there is no hope.

If nothing else, it is our hope and care for Rick’s soul, that we must cast him from us. If there is to be ANY hope for him, we must do this.

Therefore, if Rick is struck down, and is unable to continue… there is hope for him. It would be a sign that means that God might be working to remove this evil from his life. And, he WAS struck down. You see that in this video.

Did he repent?


He did the opposite. He doubled down on his false accusation and heresy.

If God continues to send His wrath upon him, to wear away his flesh with sickness and difficulty, then we might have hope that God is working to bring him back to the Body of Christ. However, if we don’t see any of this, and if we don’t see repentance, then we cannot have this hope.

Please understand that I do not, in any way, wish for Rick to suffer. Quite the opposite. I wish Rick to AVOID the suffering that will come for him, if he is a true child of God. However, if he isn’t a true child of God…

But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

– Hebrews 12:8

I have suffered the chastening of God, and I wish that on no one. It was horribly painful, but necessary. And, I can say that such chastening is a sign that someone is a true child of God.

If I don’t see God’s chastening in someone’s life… and if there is obvious sin in that person’s life… if there is no repentance… I will worry.

I worry about you , Rick. I really do.

Rick, for you to side with the Roman Catholic Church, against your brothers in Christ… what an abomination. I am horrified that ANYONE would do that.

As for the rest of you, you must stop listening to Rick Wiles. You must stop giving him any suppport. You must tell everyone to stay away from him. And, you must do this for the health and safety of the Body of Christ.

This is called excommunication. And, it is necessary.

Our hope is that God will return him to the Body of Christ, but he must stay excommunicated until that day arrives.

A Wednesday Note

I wrote the above on Tuesday. And then, Wednesday morning, as I was doing my daily reading that takes me through the Bible in one year, every year, I came across these two verses:

Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

– Psalm 31:18


The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

– Proverbs 8:13

Rick Wiles has lying lips and speaks grievous things with great pride and contempt against the righteous. And, Rick’s pride, arrogance… his evil way and his froward mouth …is hated by the Lord.

Judgment is coming for Rick.

Do not allow yourself to be caught in the same snare that Rick is caught in.

Now, if that were it, there would be nothing more to say. But, Rick said that he wanted to do another show on the Christian Zionists. He wanted to hit them again.

So, as I went about my work on Wednesday, I waited for that video to come out on YouTube. And, it did.

And, it was worse than the above,
since it gave us an even clearer picture
of his true nature.

Rick Wiles On The ‘Truth’ About “Dr” Cyrus Scofield

I was hoping that this next video would be just a half hour of how awful C. I. Scofield was. And yes, Scofield was awful. No. Really. That part is true.

It doesn’t change anything. It doesn’t make Dispensationalism and the Pretrib Rapture less right or less wrong. Lots of dirtbags claim things to be true, that you and I agree with.

So, when I saw this title, I breathed a sigh of relief, believing that I would be able to avoid writing a long article about Rick Wiles.

Boy, was I wrong.

The Truth About “Dr” Cyrus Scofield

The Blow-By-Blow Analysis


I am only a minute and thirteen seconds into this video, and I have already hit my first outrageous lie. And, I can hardly believe it.

Rick dares to claim that Dispensationalist churches do not preach holiness or Jesus Christ.

As much as I disagree with the dispensationalists… as much as I get upset over the pretribulation rapture theory, I would never lie like this. Never. And, I just do not understand how it is that Rick can lie like this.

Where does he get his ‘permission’ to make false accusation against other Christians?

Rick Knows That He Is Lying

I just do not understand how someone can claim to be a Christian, while being so dishonest. I just do not get it. He is lying through his teeth, and he knows it.

Remember that being deceived means that you honestly believe that something is true, when it isn’t. Rick KNOWS that what he is saying is untrue. He KNOWS that he is telling you a lie.


This is what makes me the most upset. Premeditated lying by someone who claims to be a Christian is an abomination. And, it is a sign that a person is not a Christian.

Therefore Rick CANNOT Be A Christian

Please understand this, and think it through carefully. If you deliberately and knowingly lie – especially about another Christian – you cannot BE a Christian. You cannot be a follower of Christ, while doing something like this.

It is not possible.

Therefore, Rick cannot be a Christian. It is not possible.

I know that he claims that he is a Christian, but his actions prove that he CANNOT BE A CHRISTIAN.

Please remember that claiming Christ is not enough. Talk is cheap. Even actions are cheap. If you truly are a Christian there are certain things that you will never do. And, there are other things that you will ALWAYS do.

Deliberately lying about another person… deliberately deceiving other Christians …and deliberately bringing false accusation against another Christian…


It is not possible. It just isn’t.

Therefore, Rick Wiles is not a Christian.

Now, does it mean that Rick wasn’t a Christian in the past?

Who knows?

Maybe. Anything is possible. He might even… one day, if he repents and turns to the Lord …be a Christian in the future. But, we aren’t concerned about that.

What we are concerned with, right now, is who and what Rick Wiles is, right now. And, right now, it is clear that Rick is not, and cannot be, a Christian.

Can it be more clear than that?

But, like I said, I’m only a minute and thirteen seconds into this video. Let me brace myself and unpause the video.


Rick continues in the same vein as he started, adding to this lie. And then this Burkhart guys chimes in. And, he makes his own false claim.

The 1900 Year Lie

He says that – for 1900 years – Christians believed a certain way about the End Times, the Last Days. Now, he doesn’t specifically claim what they believed, but you can bet that he is claiming that original church eschatology claimed that we were in the Millennium, or that the Millennium did not exist.

‘Doc Burkhart’ is dead wrong.

Do a search for ‘Classical Premillennialism’. Classical Premillennialism teaches that we will go through the Tribulation and will be gathered by the angels when Christ returns.

THAT is ‘Classical Premillennialism’ and it was taught by almost every true Christian Church, before, during and after the Dark Ages. However, Brukhart isn’t talking about the true Christians that were persecuted by the Roman Catholic Church.

No, when Burkhart gave his 1900 year lie, he was talking about the Roman Catholic Church. And, the Catholics do NOT believe in Classical Premillennialism. Roman Catholics follow Amillennialism.

Here is the Catholic postion:

As far as the millennium goes, we tend to agree with Augustine and, derivatively, with the amillennialists. The Catholic position has thus historically been “amillennial” (as has been the majority Christian position in general, including that of the Protestant Reformers), though Catholics do not typically use this term. The Church has rejected the premillennial position, sometimes called “millenarianism” (see the Catechism of the Catholic Church 676).



So, as you listen to Burkart, you can tell that he is giving the Catholic position. Except there is a problem with the ‘Catholic Position’. Catholics aren’t Christian.


Only Americans Teach The Rapture

Then, after Burkart gives his Catholic view, Rick adds another lie, but this time… with some truth. Again, just because I disagree with someone or something, I am still required to be honest.

I will paraphrase what Rick says:

Rick says that no Christian church teaches the rapture doctrine, around the world, except where American missionaries have been teaching.

Of course, that’s not true. And, you will need to remember that he includes Roman Catholic Churches in that statement. So, let’s pick this apart.

Where He Is Right

He is right, in that most Christians, around the world do not believe in a pretribulation rapture, unless they have been infected with an American Christianity. Most Christians believe that we are going to go through the Tribulation.

Generally, only an American would believe that we would not suffer the persecution of the Antichrist. In fact, I was talking to a Taiwanese Christian on Sunday, and she was surprised at this idea that we Christians would be raptured before the Tribulation.

So, please understand that this emphasis on a Pretribulation Rapture is a uniquely American idea. It’s a kind of prosperity doctrine that teaches that God would never let anything bad happen to you. As someone who has traveled the world, I can tell you that Christians have suffered terrible persecution, and would laugh at any American that would tell them that God would never allow anything bad to happen to them.

The Pretribulation Rapture Is A Prosperity Gospel

The Pretribulation Rapture really is a prosperity gospel, and it is not what Jesus or His disciples taught.

And, after skimming through this Wikipedia article, I’m afraid that this is an accurate description of the Prosperity Gospel or ‘Prosperity Theology’:


Those of you who believe in a Pretribulation Rapture will not like this description, but it’s the truth.

Worse, those who believe in a Pretribulation Rapture are giving people like Rick Wiles the ammunition that they want to lie about other Christians. By promoting a doctrine that is not in the Bible, you are giving ammunition to the minions of Satan.

Heresy ALWAYS does this. Always.

There was false doctrine in my first church, and it allowed non-Christians the ability to attack it, and eventually destroy it.

False doctrine ALWAYS causes weakness. It’s one of many reasons why you must never allow it in your church, or to be taught. In addition to being a form of rebellion against God, it gives Satan an opportunity. And, you NEVER want that to happen.

Satan will ALWAYS take advantage of an opportunity to attack and destroy Christians – especially now, in these Last Days.

If you need more on what I think about this, go here:

A Theory That Blinds

So, the truth of Rick’s attack, lies with the Pretribulation Rapture doctrine. And, Rick weaves that truth into his lies, to try and subvert his listeners.

When Burkhart picks up from Rick, he speaks the truth, when he claims that Pretribbers ‘add’ to the Bible what isn’t there. And, again, those of you who believe in a pretrib rapture, gave him that ammunition.

But, I will tell all of you that adding to the Bible is a lesser sin than ripping it out, which is what Rick and Burkhart are doing. This video is obscene, and I’m not even five minutes into it.

(I shall grit my teeth and continue.)

Rick Gets Pretrib History Wrong

Then Rick launches into the Plymouth Brethren. I have no idea how accurate his attack on them is, but I can tell you that the origin of the Pretribulation Rapture doctrine isn’t as accurate as he claims. The Plymouth Brethren got it from Edward Irving, and Edward Irving got it from Manuel Lacunza.

And, I personally believe that Manuel Lacunza wrote his book as an effort at deception – to neutralize the belief that the Roman Catholic Church was going to be the Antichrist in the Last Days. This is my own speculation based on the Jesuit Oath and his use of a fake name and a fake identity – claiming that he was a Rabbi, that had become a Christian, calling himself ‘Rabbi Juan Josaphat ben-Ezra’.

His book was:

La venida del Mesías en gloria y majestad

To be clear, this was not the pretribulation rapture theory as most Dispensationalists believe today. But, it laid the foundation that Irving, and then Darby, would build upon.

Also, Lacunza used some of the ideas of Francisco Ribera and Roberto Bellarmino.
However, because his book was not in accordance with Catholic doctrine, I must assume that he wrote the book as a way of injecting his ideas into non-Catholic churches. It is hard to believe that this was an honest attempt to influence Catholic doctrine. But, whether this was an honest attempt or an effort to deceive, he was successful in subverting Protestant eschatology.

Again, remember that the purpose of the Jesuits was to neutralize and defeat non-Roman Catholic churches. It is a part of the Jesuit Oath, and this pretrib idea would have been an effective way of weakening Christians by injecting easily disprovable heresy into their doctrine.

You can read more about Lacunza, here:


Is Rick Wiles A Jesuit?

Talking about Manuel Lacunza has made me think about the Jesuits and the Jesuit Oath. And, I have heard far too much about the Jesuits to discard the possibility that I just do not want to even think about.

Could Rick Wiles be a Jesuit?

Never trust a Jesuit. Unfortunately, they lie about their own identity, which is why I am seriously wondering if Rick Wiles might actually be a Jesuit. I just do not know of any other explanation that fits the facts of his deliberate dishonesty.

I hate to think of Rick Wiles as a Jesuit, but I’m struggling to find a better explanation. And, if you think that I’m blowing this out of proportion, you clearly haven’t studied the Jesuits and their strategies of subversion. Seriously go check for yourself.

In fact, let me show you some my research:


Once you read that, and watch some of the videos, you’ll find that the Jesuits have penetrated every major seminary, denomination and Christian broadcaster. And, that makes me wonder if Rick is a Jesuit.

I don’t want to believe it. I don’t even want to think about it as a possibility. But, his behavior fits the Jesuit mold.

But, let’s continue with what Rick Wiles is saying.

Charles Spurgeon

He goes on to say that Charles Spurgeon denounced the Pretribulation Rapture theory and Dispensationalism. And, he is correct. Spurgeon DID denounce it.

I find it ironic that Burkhart’s response to Rick’s claim is very Dispensationalist. He said that there was only the New Covenant and the Old Covenant. But, what about the time before the Old Covenant?

Which Old Covenant?

Actually, there is no ‘Old’ and ‘New’ Covenants. There is only one. Those who came before Jesus Christ were pointing TO Jesus Christ. Without Jesus Christ there could be no covenant of any kind. Without Jesus, there could have been no promise to Abraham. Noah could not have found grace in the eyes of God without Jesus.

Jesus paid for more than just our sins. He paid for the sins of Adam and every follower of God until now.

So, whether he knows it our not, Burkhart is a Dispensationalist by claiming that there is more than one covenant. How ironic.

There is only ONE. Just. ONE. And, His name is Yeshua.

Rick Condemns Himself To Hell AGAIN

And then, after the nine minute mark, Rick condemns himself to Hell by ripping out Revelation 20. Here is why:

And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

– Revelation 22:19


And, those who are not in the Book of Life are cast into the Lake of Fire:

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

– Revelation 20:15


Darby Was Trying To Create A State Of Israel?

Then, Rick launches into his anti-Zionist rant about how this whole thing was for the purpose of creating a Zionist, State of Israel. I have the urge to laugh at this. It’s so completely ridiculous.

Darby was trying to create a State of Israel?


Did Rick somehow get this in a vision?

Can he get any more ridiculous?

Has he lost his mind?

Do you remember his claim that the Israeli government is sending money to American churches? How is it possible to be that stupid?

He then mentions something that took me a while to internalize. He said that no one believed in a Pretribulation Rapture and Dispensationalism until Scofield came along, and that’s not true.

John Nelson Darby made at least 5 missionary journeys to North America between 1862 and 1877. And, in 1866, he began publishing his commentary on the Bible in 32 volumes. So, it would be wrong to say that Darby’s views were unknown in America. They just weren’t widely received – except for his eschatology (i.e., the pretrib rapture). Americans LOVED his eschatology.

Nothing makes you popular like claiming that you will never have to suffer persecution. Just look at Joel Osteen and Your Best Life Today. He packs a stadium with his pablum.

And, I’m sorry, but there is no evidence whatsoever, that Darby was attempting to create the State of Israel. What a stupid thing to say.

Rick’s Justified Attack On Scofield

He then launches into his description of C. I. Scofield. Unfortunately, his description is correct. Everything matches with what I know about Scofield. He really was an awful and evil man. He abandoned his wife and child in Kansas. He engaged in fraud while in Kansas, and when he fled to Texas, he told none of this to the church he pastored. In fact, he married a woman there, while he was still married to someone else.

No church that I’ve ever been in, would accept him as even a deacon, let alone a pastor!

So, Rick’s account matches what I know, until this thing about ‘The Lotus Club’. And, all that he says is innuendo and supposition – without any proof at all.

Remember that we already have proof that Rick is a deliberate liar. So, being truthful about his claims isn’t important to him.

Rick claims to know how Scofield got into the ‘Lotus Club’. He claims to know how Woodrow Wilson got elected as President. He claims to know all the motivations and reasons.

And his proof?

He doesn’t NEED proof. He has a great story. No one needs proof, when you have a good story.

Burkhart’s Claim Against God

And, when Burkhart mentions that there was nothing religious about this ‘Zionist Movement’ – which is not true – Burkhart is essentially claiming that God could not use a secular movement to bring Israel back to the Land of Israel.

How utterly ludicrous.

Rick and Burkhart are making claims about God. They are claiming that God could not be using the Jewish Zionist movement to bring Israel back into the Land of Israel.

Wait. Do they mean that God doesn’t use unsaved people to do His will?


Of course, we’ve already established that Rick is a deliberate liar, so such strange and illogical pronouncements should not surprise us. They shouldn’t, but they do. How pathetic.

Rick is acting in the time-honored way that evil men and women subvert the unwary. He HINTS at a connections. He claims knowledge of motivations without a shred of proof. He claims that money changed hands without offering a single bit of evidence that it happened. And, Rick’s focus this time is on Samuel Untermeyer and his supposed funding of Scofield.

A Personal Example

Let me give you an example of the kind of fantastic foolishness of Rick Wiles:

I like the work of David DuByne and his YouTube channel Adapt 2030. I subscribe to his channel, and I have spoken well of his work. He also lives in Taipei.

Therefore, that’s PROOF OF COLLUSION, right?


Well, according to Rick Wiles, that kind of thinking would be correct. The fact that I like David’s work, and that we are both in the same city, offers all the proof that Rick would need to PROVE that David DuByne was colluding with me.

Only a moron would think that, or someone who is trying to twist your mind. And no, I do not ever recall meeting David DuByne or even communicating with him, even though we are both Americans living in Taipei. But, if I should ever see him on the street, I’ll wave and say “hi”.

So, let me ask you:

Is there even any evidence that Scofield was a member of the Lotus Club?

Is there any evidence that Samuel Untermeyer even KNEW C. I. Scofield?

(Only ten more minutes of this awful video.)

More Allegations About Untermeyer

By the way, how does Rick ‘know’ all these ‘facts’ about Untermeyer?

As with any good lie, there are always some tidbits of fact. But, this is a threadbare tapestry that Rick is weaving. But, it would take some kind of diabolical, ‘superhuman’ intelligence to make it work.

In fact, to swallow this Big Lie that Rick is telling, you have to believe everything that Hitler said about the Jews. It really is that bad.

For instance, Rick claims that Untermeyer was ‘manipulating’ Woodrow Wilson.


Rick claims that Untermeyer INVITED Scofield to the Lotus Club, when I don’t even see that Scofield was ever a member. There is not one shred of proof that this is the case. All that Rick has, is assumption and innuendo. That is not proof.

And, those making these claims?


Rick then claims that Untermeyer gave Scofield the money and the introduction to the Oxford Publishing House. There are plenty of places where Scofield could have gotten the money and the introduction to the Oxford Publishing House. After all, Bible printing was a big business.

And, Rick has no proof of ANY of his claims.

Again, notice how Rick is layering supposition upon innuendo upon insinuation, weaving it together and claiming that it’s all a grand conspiracy. This is a classic method. There are no sources. There is no proof.

Rick, you must think that we are stupid.

The Oxford Publishing House Printed The Scofield Bible For Free?

And then, after the 22 minute mark, he claims that the Oxford Publishing House was printing millions of Scofield Bibles and giving all of them away FOR FREE.


I’m sorry, but I had to laugh, and it threatened to bring my asthma back. I couldn’t believe it. What an utterly insane and stupid conspiracy theory. Bible printing and sales was (and still is) a big business. Oxford Press was interested in making money, and would have given some Bibles away for free as a marketing effort.

They still do that today.

But, that isn’t what Rick is saying. Rick is saying that Oxford Press printed up millions of Bibles and gave them away – because they were paid for by Jewish Zionists. That’s right, Rick is claiming that the Scofield Bible was a Jewish plot to get Christians to support the creation of the State of Israel.

Again, Rick is ignoring the fact that John Nelson Darby traveled to America at least five times and preached his Pretrib Rapture Theory throughout the United States. And, he was very popular in America.

The problem is that – for Rick – if you know that Darby was popular in the United States, you won’t believe his Jewish conspiracy theory. So, Rick wants you to forget about Darby and his influence in the US, so that you will buy into his Jewish Conspiracy.

He wants you to believe that this is all a Jewish plot.

Scofield’s Honorary Doctorate of Divinity

Rick then throws out this thing about Scofield’s Doctor of Divinity degree, as if it were a big deal. He even titles his video, with this idea in mind. The fact that there is no record that Scofield received a Doctorate of Divinity, is somehow a part of this Great Jewish Conspiracy.

Rick claims that Scofield needed to have gone to school to get his D.D., but Rick doesn’t want you to know that these ‘degrees’ were often given out as ‘honorary degrees’. And, the reason why we might not have any record of this ‘Doctorate of Divinity’ is that the school that gave it to him, might have been forced to close its doors.

I’m sorry Rick, but it is dishonest to make a big deal about this, where there is a logical reason for why we do not have this record. Furthermore, it is easy to see how Scofield would have gotten such an honorary degree, because of this Bible that he created.

As much as I disagree with what Scofield did, I’m not prepared to lie about him to suit my purposes. Just because we do not know what institution might have given him that honorary doctorate, doesn’t mean that he didn’t have one.

One More Attack On The Bible By Rick

Then Rick and Burkhart end with one more twist of the Bible. One more. They couldn’t help it. They want you to think that Joshua fulfilled all the promises to Israel. And, that God wasn’t going to bring Israel back to the Land.

One more twist of the knife, Rick. One more twist.

It’s one thing to lie about other Christians…

…but to directly lie against God?


What about Ezekiel? Isaiah? Jeremiah? Jesus? And Paul?

They ALL spoke of Israel’s return. In fact, most of the prophets spoke of Israel’s return. Yet, Rick acts as if those prophets did not exist and did not say what they said.

I am amazed at how much Rick is willing to lie. He is lying not just about Christians, but he is lying about God.


That was a lot, from both videos, and I’m sorry to dump all that on you. I’m even MORE sorry to dump all of that on myself. But, there are too many of you who are listening to Rick Wiles. And, you might have friends who listen to Rick Wiles, who need to be warned that he is deliberately and outrageously deceiving his audience. And, that outrageous deception is puzzling.

There can be no question that Rick is deliberately lying.

I am a witness. You are a witness.

If Rick were a stupid and ignorant man with an IQ at room temperature, we might be able to think that he just doesn’t know the truth. But, we both know that Rick is very smart.

Rick has been ‘in the business’ for a long time. He knows a LOT of people. He knows churches and pastors. He KNOWS that what he is saying is a lie.

So, I ask again…

How can a Christian deliberately lie?

Especially, when he is deliberately lying about brothers and sisters in Christ.

The only explanation that I can think of, is that he is not a Christian. In fact, that is the least of our explanations. So, let me repeat that:

Rick Wiles is NOT a Christian

Whether he WAS ever a Christian is hard to say. I have no idea. But, one thing is for sure, he is not a Christian now. No follower of Christ deliberately lies about another Christian – especially, in an attempt to deceive other Christians. In fact, that is so foundational, that you need to hear that again:

No follower of Christ deliberately lies about another Christian – especially, in an attempt to deceive other Christians.

That is a fundamental principle that you cannot avoid. And, there is only one conclusion that we can derive from that. So, I say again:

Rick Wiles is NOT a Christian.

Now, is he something else?

It might be enough to say that he isn’t a Christian, and that he’s merely doing all this for the money. And yes, that might be all that this is. The love of money, which is the root of all evil.

Enter The Jesuits

The problem is that I see a little too much passion in Rick, to believe that it is JUST about the money. Yes, he has a slick studio and is rolling in cash. But, I sense that there is something more.

Remember what I wrote, here:


High level Jesuits have left the Roman Catholic Church, and what they report is startling. If what they say is true, then all these men and women who have been pushing for a greater closeness with the Pope, might be Jesuits.

Think about what Kenneth Copeland has done, by proclaiming that the Protestant Reformation is over and welcoming the Pope and praying for the Pope, as a brother.

Jesuits are tasked with bringing the Protestants back to ‘The Mother Church’. And, they are tasked with doing it by any means necessary – including the worst kinds of subversion and infiltration. They are also told to deny that they are Jesuits and even swear everlasting hatred of the Jesuits, while they do it.

So, expect Rick to deny that he is a Jesuit. However, the question of whether or not he is a Jesuit, is not really important.

It Doesn’t Matter If Rick Is A Jesuit

That’s not the fundamental point. The fundamental point is this:

No follower of Christ deliberately lies about another Christian – especially, in an attempt to deceive other Christians.

That is a fundamental principle that you cannot avoid. And, there is only one conclusion that we can derive from that. Only one. So, I say again:

Rick Wiles is NOT a Christian.
