Is Ruckman Arrogant?

Is Peter 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 […]

Ruckman’s out-of-print rapture guessing booklet

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 […]

No blacks in Ruckman’s large church

During a visit to Peter 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 in the south will normally have at least some blacks, but this was not the case on the […]

Semi-Ruckmanism and its dangers

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 […]

Not applying his own teaching

  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 […]

Ruckman-on-a-mug

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. […]

Bumper sticker mania in Ruckmanland

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 […]

The biggest, fattest, most whopping lie according to Ruckman

Peter Ruckman tries to elevate himself by accusing virtually everyone else who disagrees with him of being a liar. He will make flippant statements such as, "Every major, recognized Christian scholar in this century is an habitual, chronic, intentional, pathological LIAR (Gen. 3:1)." (Ruckman, Peter. The Christian Liar’s Library. 1997, p. […]
