Dear brother Jack. I have been spending quite a bit of time in the archives of the site reading what WCWTK.
And when reading many of the comments to your teaching it struck me that there was some pretty heavy criticism, both personally and to the scriptures you quote. As well as some very very strange people who write them.
Though I might not agree 100 p.c. with you, please believe me you are in my prayers.
Blessings in Him Who died for all the sins of mankind, Who rose from the dead and Who will return, our blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

David, we had church cancelled today due to freezing rain and sleet and 4-6 inches of snow coming and winds up to 30mph so I am home to respond to your very gracious and kind comments. I love what you said. It is sad that most of the attacks come from other Christians who feel that they must attack the messenger and challenge so many articles and the worst thing is that it is over non-essentials. I can see that we may not agree on everything but it doesn’t mean we have to be disagreeable and these things really bring shame to the cause of the gospel because non-Christians see these things and say, “See, they cannot even get alone with each other.” The main thing is the plain thing and you said it ….Him crucified for our sins and rose from the dead and is our hope to do the same when He returns. I covet your prayers and I thank God for you David.

Hi, Pastor! I’m amazed you were actually chosen to take part in a film’s creation! :O Sometimes, the bestest things just come out of the blue, I guess. And concerning the prophet Joel, I know I’m not your son, but I’ll testify to a dream I had ages ago. I was holding a huge Bible bound in black leather. It had THREE versions of the Bible in it, and there was the Hebrew Bible, (the Bible we know and love), a Causasian Bible, and the 3rd version’s name was hidden, I cannot remember it. In the Caucasian Bible, there was a book titled “Tempter”, and there was lots and lots of text. This kinda disturbed me, and I guessed it had something to do with somebody presenting a twisted version of the Bible, possibly satanic. And there is my testimony! God bless you, Pastor Jack, and let me know what you think about the dream!
Thanks, Jack H, from England 😀

Good to hear from you again Jack. Not sure what “film” you mean in a film’s creation. I know I was born with a film of sin on me until Christ’s righteousness was imputed to me by His death (2 Cor 5:21) but the dream you had was very interesting. I think that dreams are sometimes God’s way to speak to us, though certainly the vast majority or just random but this one makes me think that this is about today or from the time you dreamt it, was to happen and it has today. The Jehovah’s Witnesses use their own Bible (the NWT) and it has been adulterated for sure. Perhaps this dream was placed there by God (and really, does anything happen outside of God’s sovereign will…or by accident?) and this dream was meant to tell you, perhaps me…and even maybe some of our readers, that God’s Word cannot be changed and if it is, the source of it is the Devil himself. Thanks Jack…even if you aren’t my son, I am still proud of you and would be honored to call you son…but for sure, you are a brother in Christ.

By film, I meant movie. It’s what we call it here in Britain. 😀
Thank you for your reply, Jack 😀

Jack H March 4, 2014 at 1:46 am

And also, that was a really interesting interpretation of the dream that you did. Mine was that a man would rise out of Caucasia with a corrupted Bible, but you have really hit the spot!

Good morning Pastor. Depending on which version of the Bible you are quoting, Luke 10:1 can read either “After this the Lord appointed seventy others…” or it can read “After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others…” After this the Lord appointed seventy others…” The KJV, AKJV, KJ21, ASV, RASV, AMP, NIV, and most other revisions go with the seventy, while only a few like the CEB, CEV and the DRA say seventy-two. Perhaps I’m being picky but when you quote a scripture that differs between translations/versions, you should state which version of the Bible that you are quoting from.

Jack Wellman March 8, 2014 at 11:33 am

Thank you Mr. Walch for your comment and concern. In my many Bibles, there is a note on Luke 10:1 which says “Other ancient authorities read seventy-two” so some day 70 while others say seventy but the point is that we all need to be doing what these did….take the whole Bible to the whole world and that whether it is 70 or 70 is not as important as there were some that went out and that they went out 2 by 2 which is the method preferred by Jesus and the apostles. I use the ESV by the way and this is noted at the bottom of this article saying, “Resources – “Scripture quotations are from The Holy Bible, English Standard Version® (ESV®), copyright © 2001 by Crossway, a publishing ministry of Good News Publishers.
