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). Cherubims are also described with wings in Eze. 10:5, and in other passages. Note also that Dan. 9:21 and Rev. 14:6 describes an […]

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.

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 doubtful 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 […]
In this book Ruckman accepts as fact much of what belongs to the realm of science fiction. It demonstrates that Ruckman is fascinated with the bizarre in everything, not just theology. Ruckman is quick to accuse others of being gullible when they disagree with him in areas of theology, but […]
Ruckman likes to make the rules. Let’s observe the rules that Ruckman imposes on others, and see if he follows his own rules, including people he defends. Here’s a large sampling of his rules on not referring to “the Greek,” “the Greek text,” etc.: Ruckman making the rules “The Greek Text” […]
Peter Ruckman tries to elevate himself by accusing virtually everyone else who disagrees with him of being a liar.

The Christian Liar’s Library. 1997, p. […]

Examples of superstition regarding numbers King James (nine letters), 1611 (total of nine), Holy Bible (nine letters). Nine is the […]
In his failed attempts at legitimizing his extreme teachings on the KJV issue, Ruckman has attempted to rewrite history in order to portray those who merely believed in the trustworthiness of the KJV as holding to Ruckman's position. He tries hard to convince others that Ruckmanism existed before his era in order […]
These quotes were collected from various sources as documented. Some of the books contain a position favoring modern translations we do not endorse, but nonetheless they contain valuable statements warning about Ruckmanism.
