An Adullam Films Production
Written and Directed by Christian J. Pinto
Running Time: Approx 2.5 hours

- The sequel to "A Lamp in the Dark".

- “Tares Among the Wheat” will likely challenge what most scholars believe about Bible history, and the origins of the current wave of new translations that have flooded churches around the world.

- Enter a mysterious world of ancient manuscripts, assailed by forgeries, fakes, and theological intrigue of the highest order.


In the 19th century, a revolution in biblical scholarship was prompted by the publication of a never-before-seen manuscript called Codex Sinaiticus. The work was allegedly “discovered” by a German scholar named Constantine von Tischendorf, who declared this to be the oldest Bible ever found. Tischendorf said he found the work in a rubbish basket at a Greek Orthodox monastery in Egypt. While many in the academic world did not fully believe his story, they were willing to accept his claims about the antiquity of the codex.

Yet shortly after his discovery was published, a renowned Greek paleographer named Constantine Simonides came forward and declared that the manuscript was no ancient text at all, but had been created by him in 1840. The controversy surrounding these events is, perhaps, the most incredible untold chapter in Bible history. It involves Jesuits, the Pope, a high-minded German, a committee of Anglo Romanists, and a mysterious Greek patriot. It is a story that (while quite true and well documented) a vast majority of modern academics know nothing about. Yet the subject matter dramatically impacts the world of biblical scholarship, even to this present hour. Most of what today’s scholars believe about manuscript evidence is based on the events of this era, and the footnotes in your Bible are the proof of it.

Topics discussed in this documentary:

1) New details about the Counter Reformation and its origins

2) Answers arguments concerning the Waldenses, Albigenses, Paulicans -- and the accusation that they were “Manichean heretics.”

3) History of how the Papacy was established in 606 A.D.

4) Italian missionary explains Rome’s works gospel vs. the gospel of grace

5) The Jesuit plan to seize control of the Bible.

6) The Oxford Movement and its use of “Protestants” as secret agents for Rome.

7) The Jesuit origins of higher criticism as a weapon against the Bible.

8) Rome’s history of creating forged manuscripts and fake relics.

9) The never-before-told history of Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus.

10) Westcott, Hort and the Revision of 1881.

Featured experts: Dr. David Brown, Dr. Henry Hudson, Dr. Ronald Cooke, Dr. Alan O’Reilly, Les Garrett, Roger Oakland, Dr. D.A. Waite, Dr. H.D. Williams.
AND: Chris Pinto’s Radio Show for today is about the new film.

The Roman Connection: Jesuitical plots to destroy faith in the Bible

Another Chris Pinto radio show, this one on the history of the Higher Biblical Criticism. Yes, there IS a Roman connection. The higher criticism was invented by Jesuits, the intention being to destroy the Bible which is the basis of Protestantism. They also had their hands in evolutionism, also helping to undermine faith in the Bible by falsifying the dating of the Bible, by for instance coming up with very old dates for human skulls, dates they pulled out of a hat. He says he's going to cover all this in a lot more detail in his forthcoming film Tares Among the Wheat.

On the radio show he has a clip of Bart Ehrman talking about the dating of manuscripts. This is the Bart Ehrman who fell away from his Christian faith by exposure to Higher Criticism under Bruce Metzger who was far from believing the Bible is the Word of God, and apparently also, naturally, had some kind of connection to Rome.

The Roman Connection: Kurt Aland

A lady in England who likes this blog and likes doing some research into these things on her own sent me this picture, a heads-up about Kurt Aland, along with some interesting information about Hort's Catholic influences as well. Hope I have time to get to the latter eventually.

Seems to me I'd heard that Kurt Aland has some Catholic connections although I haven't been able to spend much time researching these things lately. That's Aland of the Nestle-Aland Greek Critical Text that underlies so many of today's English Bible versions, and that preserves the execrable Alexandrian texts so favored by Westcott and Hort. His credentials as shown at Wikipedia are pretty strictly Protestant, although I've been learning that Protestant affiliations do not always guarantee a truly Protestant background or mindset, as I'd suggest the picture demonstrates.

Besides the picture, the Wikipedia article suggests a less-than-pure Protestant worldview with this comment:
Among experts Aland proved himself to be an important ecumenist who has left the small range of German Protestantism far behind.
Chris Pinto's latest film on the history of the Bible, Tares Among the Wheat, is due out soon, and is promised to touch on the Catholic connection in the Bible versions issue. Go Chris Pinto! Pray for Chris Pinto!

We need this stuff. Let's pray for a new Protestant Reformation, pray against the Roman Antichrist, pray for more revelation of the truth about all these things.

Hey, Church: check out my Catholicism blog and read some of the stuff I've listed there in the right hand margin. If I can I'll try to come back and put the links here as well.

[Just a little side note: I've got a ton of stuff I'd love to get to for this blog and other blogs, and other projects on top of that, the Lord willing, AND I'm physically in bad shape which is contributing to the lag, having to get medical tests done and hoping for a hip replacement in the near future that might make a huge difference in my "quality of life," again Lord willing. So if anyone is inclined to pray for me PLEASE DO SO. Thank you!]
