Like I said many take scripture and twist it to their view of the world, that is not what the L-RD meant in those scriptures, I can't speak for Dake. But if you do look up segregation in the dictionary like I did you will find that it means to

1."set apart from others"

OR

#2 To separate from the rest of society ( such as racial)

Now if Dake were implying #2 in the racial sense then it is wrong, Wrong, WRONG! and unG-dly. As I tried to explain before the L-rD made us all , and of the exact sex, color, family, country, etc that HE wanted us to be and he loves us all. But not all love him, to show our love for him he has told us to separate ourselves from those who do not, to not follow their ways, but be holy unto him.

Notice he says to separate ourselves, and in Revelation he calls us to come out. This is of our own free will to do, we do the action, not he, or anyone else. This is the big difference in apartheid, there were those who esteemed themselves above others and took it upon themselves to "segregate" because of their own bigotry.

That is not of the one True G-d, that is of Satan, I don't care under what church banner this was done, it is plain and simple. G-d calls us out, asks us to not be part of the sinful world. While these others have proclaimed those with a certain color of skin to be sinful or cursed or not as good and therefore pen them in so as not to be tainted. Again this is NOT of G-d.

Although I am Jewish I was brought up in a Christian home and a Christian church ( assilmilated because my family wasn't acceptable being Jewish) and I remember a song I was taught in Kindergarten Bible Nursery school. It was called

Jesus loves the little children

ALL the children of the world,
Red, and yellow, black and white ( Notice white comes last )
they are precious in his sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

And I believed that way back then, and still do today.

Responding to Dake's Bible.

I am absolutely appaled by this sin soaked bible commentary being associated with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The body of Christ is in bad shape when we cannot discern good from evil. Mt 18:17 means nothing anymore. Would you drink some water if it only had a .5% amount of feces in it? Then why would you feed your spirit some crap. If the body of Christ is ever going to make an impact on the world, we first need be on one accord, and with racist and divisive teachings floating around, we will not get there.

Am not sure how many of you use the Dake's bible. but this has disturbed me.
A friend I have just met not long ago told me that Dake’s (Author of Finnis Dake’s annotated reference bible) was racist. Apparently in his publishing company. (Dake’s) they are trying to ‘tone down’ the statements he said under "30 reasons for segregation of races."
in page 159 of the New Testament. Since he died in 1987. South Africa is a racially sensitive country. Having seen what the apartheid system has done to this country I cannot believe that Dake can be one of the people that can perpetuate such!!! Have used the Dake Bible for sometime now. My father has used it from long ago.


Does any one have those 30 reasons from the earlier versions? And any views on these. This is so injuring to the spirit man!


I asked my dad to read me some of the statements over the phone earlier because he has an earlier version. He says one of the statements goes,


Different races in heaven will not pray together’


Did not hear the other one very well that says ‘separation of races, especially black races, bla bla, bla, my father said it is for the first time he saw those statements. He says they are so alarming.

I also hear, dont know how true, there were people that were still perpetuating Dake's racist ideas. like the Word of Faith Movement ministers, and diaspora american ministers began to stand up against all these. and some WoF jr was called to apologise for the movement on behalf of his father, and he did not! any one has a clue???
Nip this one in the bud...(hehehe)

Fred Price as a graduate of Rhema Bible School (WoF, Hagin) and a world famous WORD of FAITH teacher. He has taugth extensively against the early Dakes version that contained these statements.
So, no... it was actually the Charismatic and Pentecostal ministers who ignored the racist remarks in Dakes Bible for over 50 years.
So it was a WOF minister that brought the whole thing out and called for action.

BTW... Fred is black.

Here is a book by Brother Fred on the subject:

Race, Religion & Racism, Vol. 1: A Bold Encounter With Division in the Church (Hardcover)
by Frederick K. C. Price (Author)



http://www.amazon.com/Race-Religion-.../dp/1883798361


Oh.... did I mention Fred is a WOF preacher???

LOL...

I believe in Christ only.
I believe that God has reveled secrets to many different people throughout the years.
I'm stating the fact that none of them were perfect in everything.

If you're not able to differentiate the gift of God to ones person, i think it's just sad.

Remember the judgments God has given to Israel in the past, like killing all the people beast and everything else on the land. David was a a man like God's heart and has killed so many people even though "thou shall not kill".

His word is given to people that are not perfect but still has a precious a personal relation with Him.

Another example is the First Church before Paul gave his teaching. They were saved but wrong in many teaching since the secrets we're reveled to Paul. That doesn't mean that Jake and Peter we're terrible people.

God has shown us that racism was bad only years ago. That doesn't mean that everybody before we not saved because in general they were racist.

Anyway, keep an open mind and forgive one another has God forgive your sins.

God bless all of you.

The link to the Dake position paper, posted twice already, doesn't work for me. The website was probably reorganized, and I think this is it now:

First of all, the crux of the problem is that Dake totally misunderstood the concept of "race." In Scripture, it does not refer to "skin color," but primarily to matters of culture, especially belief.

The racial issue is, unfortunately, relatively minor compared to some of Dake's other errors. Here is an article dealing with one of the more theologically crucial ones.

Dakes KJV with notes is a fire starter for the Word of God ... I have one so old the covers are missing.

Mr. Dake wrote his KJV with notes in 1954 ...

Mr. Dake was born and raised in Georgia ...

No computers were available in the 1950's that could
have helped Mr Dake compile his wonderfully made KJV with notes.

I have been storing my Dakes within four feet of me for a long long time now.

I am ashamed that I have not refered to the carefully compiled ingredients more often.

I want to scan it and enlarge the many notes that help me think and renew my spirit.

I forgive Mr Dake for making a racist comment ...

I will absorb his good and ignore his one (in this matter)proven wrong thought, although he did have a few thoughts about other worlds and how the other people in Adams day got here, but I will also leave those aside for now.

Look at this quote from the Dakes web page:

Torrents of praise began to flow from my lips as I received in measure what the disciples had on the day of Pentecost. It was May, 1920, and I was seventeen years old.


I was immediately able to quote hundreds of Scriptures without memorizing them. I also noticed a quickening of my mind to know what chapters and books various verses were found in. Before conversion, I had not read one full chapter of the Bible. This new knowledge of Scripture was a gift to me, for which I give God the praise.
From the time of this special anointing until now, I have never had to memorize the thousands of scriptures I use in teaching. I just quote a verse when I need it, by the anointing of the Spirit.

Dakes Racist?

The thread I'm replying to is very old but you may still be looking for someone who has page 159 of the New Testament from Dake's Bible. The 30 reasons for segregation are there and I must say, they are very incriminating. I really enjoy Dakes Bible but cannot agree with his views in that respect.

There's a lot in Dake's Bible that's worth holding on to.
