With few exceptions, this timeline is formed entirely from statements from the writings of Peter Ruckman (especially his autobiography). Some dates are tentative because at times we found differents dates for the same event in different books. We used an asterick (*) in those cases to indicate that a date was tentative for […]
In Ruckman's The Path of the Second Advent booklet he comes across as if he knows the exact route the Lord will take in the second phase of his coming. He is so confident that he referred to his route as an advanced revelation in the King James Bible. He […]
During rare moments of introspection, Ruckman sometimes admits what could not be denied. We provide these quotes here because many Ruckman defenders will adamantly deny what Ruckman has actually admitted to in print. Ruckman admits that he is one of the crudest people you will ever meet and that he […]
The two images contain a sample page on the left from Alban Douglas' book first copyrighted in 1966 One Hundred Bible Lessons: God's Answers to Man's Questions. On the right of the two images are a sample page from two different booklets from the series Theological Studies by Peter Ruckman […]
Is Ruckman arrogant? His supporters say no. Geneha Kim in Ruckmanism Ruckus assures everyone that "Dr. Ruckman is not a prideful person claiming to be the final authority in the world." (p. 82). Perhaps to quell some concerns, in 1976 Ruckman assures his readers that he would write in a humble manner: We shall study and […]
This booklet was printed by Ruckman in 1988 and is no longer in print. Here’s a jewel from page 20. To understand the quote, it should be explained that he had played with the number 1989 (the year he was guessing that the rapture would occur) in a confusing mathematical […]
Ruckmanism Ruckus was written by Geneha Kim, a 2006 graduate of Ruckman’s Bible institute. The foreword was written by William (Bill) Grady. It is 376 pages in length and was published in 2010. It was printed by Ruckman’s Bible Baptist Bookstore in Pensacola, Florida. The foreword On the first page […]
During a visit to Ruckman's church in 2007 it was no surprise that no blacks were to be found in the auditorium among the hundreds in attendance. A typical church running several hundred will normally have at least some blacks, but this was not the case on the day we visited. There […]
Semi-Ruckmanism defined What is semi-Ruckmanism? Simply put, it consists of teaching some (though not all) of the same "Ruckmanisms" while using different terminology than Ruckman and claiming all along to be against Ruckmanism. In other words, semi-Ruckmanite views refer to reaching some of the same controversial conclusions as Ruckman regarding the KJV but differing […]
Ruckman teaches that angels have no wings (Theological Studies, Booklet 18, p. 5). Ruckman has to deny that Seraphims are angels, as they have wings (Isa. 6:2). Note also that Dan. 9:21 and Rev. 14:6 describes an angel flying. However, notice how he put wings on the angels in his artwork […]
I always wondered how much shorter his books would be without the ridiculously lengthy lists of people and institutions he despises!
In other articles we show how Ruckman’s teachings has grown stranger over the years. In this article we demonstrate how his spirit and attitude towards those with whom he disagrees has also progressively worsened over the years to an unthinkable level. If Ruckman had an inclination to vilify others in a vicious manner […]
Below is a photo of the major portion of our collection of Ruckman books, pamphlets and recordings. We are posting them here because we have been accused more than once of just borrowing Ruckman quotes from others who have written against him. Although exactly what to count is debatable, our figures reveal that Ruckman has written 138 books, tracts […]
Perhaps this Ruckman statement corresponds: “Well done thou faithful, feebleminded servant of the Devil. Thou hast been faithful to the Scholars’ Union, enter thou into the joy of the apostate Nicolaitans who have earned a crown of corruption.” Ruckman, Peter. The Books of First and Second Thessalonians and Philemon. 2005, […]
John R. Rice, then editor of The Sword of the Lord, had a falling out with Ruckman around 1972 after Ruckman published his controversial book The Christian’s Handbook of Manuscript Evidence. If this is intriguing to you, you will be interested in the article The deterioration of Ruckman’s language demonstrated in his changing treatment of […]
Can you believe this? One of the latest books by Peter Ruckman features a painting on the front cover of the KJV dying on the cross instead of Christ.
There are several things of interest in this ad. It points out that he was scheduled to speak in an Assembly of God church as well as a Methodist church. It also makes the claim that Ruckman speaks three foreign languages.
Ruckman has been known to mock preachers whose pictures show up repeatedly in the same publication. Case in point: "… never published an issue without presenting you with a picture of himself a minimum of four times! … That is a publisher advertising himself in his own paper. (Ruckman, Peter. […]
Some Ruckmanites seem to go even farther than Ruckman in their teachings. However–have you ever read Ruckman castigating them? Here is a graphic from a Ruckmanite website in the Philippines.
Photos of the parking lot of Ruckman's church taken by the webmaster in 2007. I can understand having a bumper sticker or two in order to help spread the gospel or a moral message, but isn't this over the top? What do you think? In these photos the bumper stickers are everywhere except–the […]
