Statement regarding Dr. Peter Ruckman’s death

The Bible Baptist Bookstore website announced that Peter S. Ruckman died April 21, 2016.

This website will continue and will be updated from time to time with new articles, as there is no doubt that the false teachings and influence of Ruckmanism will linger for many decades.

It can be expected that Ruckmanites will try to shame those of us who warn about Ruckman’s false teachings by claiming that we are “not respecting the dead,” that we are being unfair because Ruckman is “no longer around to defend himself,” etc.

However, false teachings need to continue to be denounced. The Biblical admonition to “mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them” (Rom. 16:17) still applies. The bookstore he founded and his followers will continue to promote Ruckmanism far and wide, hence the need to continue to “earnestly contend for the faith” (Jude 1:3).

  1. Your web site does nothing but INCREASE sales at http://www.kjv1611.org. My favorite is, “Ruckman’s vicious ungodly language.” I would recommend using the books listed in the footnote as a guide for making some of the most useful purchases from the bookstore.

    May the Lord continue to use your web site to direct people to good materials from Dr. Ruckman, to the praise of the glory of God’s dear Son, Jesus Christ.

      If you are serious about this website doing nothing but increasing sales to Ruckman’s bookstore, I challenge you to place a link on your pro-Ruckman church website and leave it there. If you won’t, it’s all talk.

  2. Anthony Lambertini says:

    Yes he was incorrect about some doctrine (like all of us are at times). We all fall short, that is true. But he gave his life to and for Christ. That is very evident. He accomplished good things for Christ.

    But my favorite subject that he was right on every time (from everything I watched and read) was the King James Bible. That is the perfect word of God for the English people.

    You cannot dishonor the dead by ridicule, mockery, or slander. So people can mock us after we’re dead. So what? Their tongue will only get them in trouble with God, if they’re wrong.
    Let us stand for the truth, love our neighbor and enemies, and prepare for the future coming of Jesus Christ after the tribulation.

      I only edited the above comment to place a statement in bold. In less than 24 hours, my prediction that Ruckman defenders would try to shame those of us who are exposing error by claiming that we are “not respecting the dead” came true. On the very same page on which the prediction was made!

      • Jay Alexander says:

        So Webmaster, if that is your name, are you claiming to be some kind of prophet with some uncanny ability to tell the future?

        • Webmaster says:

          No, I do not follow the example of Ruckman who attempted to guess the rapture multiple times in spite of Scriptural warnings against the practice. Ruckman unfortunately earned his name in publications that make a mockery of Christianity based on failed rapture guesses. See Peter Ruckman’s failed attempts at guessing the approximate date of the rapture.

          By the way, your email address is so vulgar that I came very close to not approving your comment. It is the kind of conduct that is not surprising of a Ruckmanite, as their leader did not practice the biblical admonition to “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” (Eph 4:29) May those who notice such contact be more aware than ever.

    Anthony Lambertini [test all things] where is, ‘do not dishonour the dead’, in the Bible? The actions of Judas Iscariot, Jezebel and many more who were enemies of the truth were spoken of [as a warning] after their death in the scriptures.

    It’s the living that matters – warning others of false teachers, and their protege false teachers – who teach the same as he did. The books of Mr Ruckman, Kenneth Hagin Snr and other wolves will contine to be read, snaring the gullible and naive. Their death makes little difference.

  4. “Yes he was incorrect about some doctrine (like all of us are at times). We all fall short, that is true.”

    This kind of talking, which I hear way too often, makes me sick to my stomach. It certainly doesn’t come form someone who has read and understood the Bible.

    1Jn_4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

    Rom_16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

    Tit_3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;

    Gal_1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    2Jn_1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

    and on and on…

    this man (Anthony) is excusing BLASPHEMY! No reverence for God or His word.

  5. James says:

    Yes Dr. Ruckman was off on many Biblical doctrines. Yes his death was a sad day for the USA. BUT, exposing Dr. Ruckman’s inconsistencies and false teachings is not a case of “not respecting the dead” as some may claim. When my life is finished and people sort through anything that I have taught (though my influence has been minimal) I would HOPE and pray that the inconsistencies, if there were/are any, would indeed be exposed and CORRECTED by the inspired infallible inerrant words of the living God (AV1611KJB).

    God FIRST!

  6. 2tim:2-15 says it all.

    I remember hearing stories about Doc. I heard he once painted his Apocalypse mural on the wall of a motel room he was staying in. All the host church could do when called by the hotel was ask them to send a bill.

    He didn’t suffer fools, another friend was asked by phone to delay his arrival till the church was ready, Doc quipped how many times are we going to pass Mt Rainier before we get there?

    Another fun time was when he decided he was ready to go back to the room and his wife told him to have a seat. Jaws dropped when he took a seat!

    I watched him field questions and give full Bible quotations on the fly with air nailer precision for nearly an hour in his eighties. He let the chips land where they would.
