The Rock Scandal

Revelation 22:18-19
“18 I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto them, God shall add unto him the plagues which are written in this book:19 and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.”

Out of the 104 places that the Old Testament uses the word “rock” 30 are referring directly to God. In 1609 the Catholic Douay Rheims Bible replaced or removed 30 “rocks”, all or which have direct references to God. The 1970 Catholic New American Bible put back all the altered “rocks” from the Douay Rheims, but they also added another “rock” in the New Testament. Peter’s name when translated back to the original Greek is “petros”, which is a small stone. There are 156 places in the New Testament Scriptures where it is exactly that way, but not so in the 1970 New American Catholic Bible. They correctly translated “petros”, meaning ‘Peter’ a small stone, a whopping 155 out of the 156 times! The only place where they changed the translation is in Matthew 16:18 which correctly reads: “18 And I also say unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” This verse which reads “thou art Peter” in all Bible versions prior to and after the 1970 Catholic New American Bible, is translated correctly except in the 1970 New American Catholic Bible, where it reads “thou art ‘Rock'”! Amazingly, this incorrect translation (revised in 1986) is improperly used in Catholic churches across the United States; instead of the corrected 1986 revised edition, which reads “thou art Peter”.

Bernard Maddoff was trusted by many with their hard earned money, and lost it all! The Roman Catholic Church is trusted worldwide by a billion plus people with their souls. If left unchecked, could it pull off the greatest spiritual heist of all time, and would you be willing to risk your own soul?

Bad News Alert

  • A.D. 1582 the Catholic Douay Rheims released the New Testament Scriptures and altered the word “repentance” to “penance” 50 out of 56 times.
  • A.D 1609 the Catholic Douay Rheims released the Old Testament Scriptures. They changed 30 of 64 verses translating the Hebrew word TSUR meaning “Rock” in reference to God alone. The translators took one word, TSUR, and translated it 22 different ways.
  • A.D. 1582 – 1970 the Douay Rheims Bible was the Catholic Church’s only recognized Scriptural authority. Imagine over 400 years of a man manipulated error filled Bible in the hands of Catholic spiritual leaders, to give to their followers. Error was given to all of our forefathers, prior to 1991. They robbed people of eternal life and gave them dead religion to replace it. This is truly the scandal of the ages.
  • In 1991 the New American Bible was corrected from all of the errors of the 1970 earlier addition. Sadly, the Catholic Church does not use the 1991 corrected addition in the daily readings at Mass, but instead they use the defective 1970 version. The reference for this information, posted below, can be found on the website of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops under the heading New American Bible: Is the New American Bible the only translation of Scriptures we can read from at Mass

Since May 19, 2002, the revised Lectionary, based on the New American Bible is the only English-language Lectionary that may be used at Mass in the dioceses of the United States, except for the current Lectionary for Masses with Children which remains in use.

The 1970 edition of the New American Bible is used in the Scripture readings and canticles of the Liturgy of the Hours (except the Benedictus, Magnificat, and Nunc dimittis.)
