Bullinger’s Chicken: Don’t Eat The Bones

I love E.W. Bullinger. He was a great student and his works have helped me sooooooo much! His Companion Bible, Figures of Speech, and Lexicon are treasures. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to God for these works. They were means of rescuing me from the religion of eternal torment. Most importantly, these tools helped me to become a better student. Bullinger made my God and Savior and the Written Word more precious to me! I only hope my work will do the same for others!

But when it comes to his “Gospel in the Stars” and “Numbers In Scripture,” I think he went way off track. In my experience, those who are fascinated with those works go off into so many crazy ideas and wild imagination. I’ve known some who can’t read the Bible in its proper sense any longer because they are trying to find “numerics” or they are wrapped up in conspiracies associated with the Zodiac. In my opinion, these ideas are pure imagination – though Bully meant well.

I also think Bullinger’s works on “The Two Natures” are a mess. This teaching has caused great confusion and led people astray, in my opinion.

The point is this. We can never rely on one man. Bullinger was awesome! But I simply can’t go anywhere near some things he taught. I don’t throw him away because of those bad teachings; neither do I treat him as an authorized Apostle because of his good teaching. Bullinger was just like you and me, a student.

Our security lies in daily searching the Scriptures and enjoying fellowship with our brethren. These things will keep us balanced. Until God breaks the silence when the Kingdom of God begins, we are shut up to the Word of God alone.

Eat the chicken; throw away the bones! Bon Appétit.

Happy Saturday from Lame Sheridan

I am using voice activation to write this. I am suffering from severe carpal tunnel in my right hand – it’s effecting my work since I write for a living. Pray for me.

It’s a beautiful Saturday in Chicago being over 60 degrees in February. I am studying my scriptures as I hear the wonderful sounds of kids playing outside as if it were mid-summer – I love those sounds. I come to Judges chapter 3 verse 15. That passage reads in the King James that Ehud was a man left handed. I looked up the reading in Hebrew and a few other versions, and found out it should read that Ehud was a man who is lame in his right hand. Just like me!

I take comfort and encouragement since I can barely use my right hand, because God can use lame people like me.

Happy Saturday. Keep searching the scriptures. Christ is worth it. My life of constant pain is given some relief knowing the Savior of mankind and his written word. But what gives me the most relief is sharing that faith with others.
