Perhaps with doctrines of devils, Scofield theology, we could let it go as dominant in SBC leaders now, if it were not for the “seducing spirits” that go with these doctrines from Satan. Goodness, Scofield was immoral as even First Congregational Church of Dallas now admits (called the Scofield Memorial Church, the church of Chalmers and the DTS), and any preacher and pastor or denominational leaders that has taken these doctrines of devils to his bosom, has likewise taken the subtle and bad spirits of devils that are even more dangerous because they are hard to see.
“The heart is desperately wicked and deceitful above all things, who can know it.”
They suffer. like Dr. Jeffries, the newest generation of Scofield mites, with the BIG CHURCH and BIG PASTOR malady called by the Apostle John, “the pride of life”. The pride of life of a big pastor and big church is perhaps the most subtle of the 3 deadly lustful sins of the world as it is so easy to overlook buried in the gospel of prosperity and success. The urge to “be somebody” takes them captive after a few years in a big church, if they did not have it already”; and the tendency like Nixon was above the law, a professionalism that captures their thinking to be above the normal Christian requirements of love and graciousness, which the Apostle John managed to retain.
It is the seducing spirit of warfare, falsely called a defense of the literal Bible and the fake “conservative convergence” camouflage, that has destroyed the SBC along with a failure of preachers to squelch the unsound doctrines of Scofield, which in the words of II Timothy eat as a canker or cancer. (That by the way is referring to a false rapture of first century doctrine.) Under the disguise of “conservative” and “resurgence”, sounding like a false revival of literal Bible, it is easy for us, especially those who did not live through those years of the infamous 10 year plan of Judge Pressler, that these leaders with the big church malady destroyed with their warfare thousands if not more of better Christian brethren that were pastors, teachers, and denominational leaders. They weeded out Christian love. Best seen as victims of this malady were Criswell and Stanley, Criswell who was hearing over the radio telling Bill Moyers “we are going to keep fighting until one side or the other wins”; and Stanley who admits the book of Napoleon Hill on how to grow rich is ready through each year by him and is sort of like a manual on church growth.
When Paul warned against a novice in the ministry, “not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he falls into the snare and condemnation of the devil”, he was warning as much against any minister that lets the pride of life dominate as much a young pastor. It is suggested herein that the pride of life as a self-image of a big pastor in a big church was the prime seducing spirit that destroyed the SBC, and the remaining hope is among the small rural churches untainted by both the false doctrine and the very bad spirit.
The paperback now on Kindle has joined the earlier Kindle edition with a title hopeful of attracting attention, “The Forever Kingdom rends the Demonic Veil of a False Rapture”; and it does because the real literal Bible is about the Forever Kingdom, and just one verse rends out of their Scofield hands any thousand year kingdom in Jerusalem with a new temple and the rule of Jewish Zealots. Have you noticed that Jesus while talking to leaders of Judaism took the kingdom away from their nation, a kingdom that the generation of Scofield mites are trying to restore against the decision made by God and Jesus. (A greater than Jesus is here, at least as a legend in their own Scofield mites mind!)
And unfortunately this pride of life of Scofield mites preached by them and lived by them prevents their Southern Baptist people from seeing the reality of the great doctrine in the Bible of the Falling Away, and they want it so since they have become captive to the Big Church Malady which can not admit that they in Church Growth had anything to do with the “forsaking of God and broken cisterns of salvation hewn out”.

Here is the introduction to “The Forever Kingdom Rends the Demonic Veil of the Rapture”
It was such a natural and God given plan of flow that Jesus gave of the kingdom of God within believers IN CHRIST that turned eventually only at the Second Coming into the Forever Kingdom on the New Earth, that Scofield’s theology had to mess with it in order to further the cause of the Zealots of a materialistic kingdom. On the positive side and from the Bible, you can see the natural flow from the church Jesus established by faith in Him to the one body of Christ of Jews and Gentiles in Ephesians to the Eternal Temple on the New Earth as “A Place for His Name”. On the negative side, or anti-Scofieldism side, you can see that a false concept with a false millennium and materialistic kingdom includes a large materialistic temple like that build by David and Solomon, and that materialism, alias World Love with the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the Pride of Life, is the seducing spirits that goes with the doctrines of devils of Scofield theology. The rich love Scofield since they love their riches and want to see it restored with a fiction of theology of a kingdom on earth where Israel reigns supreme, a kingdom that Jesus never intended in the teachings He brought to earth from God the Father. On every occasion, Jesus opposed the materialistic kingdom of the Zealots, and it is foolish to think that he has changed His mind because the SBC developed the theology of the Scofield Reference Bible. Can we legitimately say that further than church to one body of Jews and Gentiles to a spiritual temple in the name of God in turn on the new earth becomes the Forever Kingdom?
Even as the veil in the Temple was rent from top to bottom at the atoning death of Jesus on the cross, symbolizing for all to see and know that direct access to God was therein provided by the cross, so a new breath from Jesus of the Holy Spirit has the power to rend the control Scofield theology has over the SBC, AND RENDING THE DEMONIC VEIL OF A FICTITIOUS RAPTURE with the corresponding non-literal words of millennium and dispensationalism not found even once in the Bible. Scofield mites get so mixed up as they continue to allow the theology of the Scofield Reference Bible to dominate their study and preaching of the Bible. Even as “God breathed into man’s nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul”, so “Jesus breathed on the first disciples and they received the Holy Spirit”; such a time of refreshing from the presence of the Lord can counter both “the seducing spirits and doctrines of devils” first from the Roman Vatican about 1000 A.D. and second from the Protestant (mainly SBC) seducing spirits of warfare and a lack of love, and gigantic failures in Bible illumination by the Spirit, a reading of philosophy into the Bible by outside notes (Isogesis). If they could get their head straight on only 2 Scriptures about the kingdom and about the church, God could continue to use the SBC to extend the Forever Kingdom.
“Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it.” (Matthew 21:43)
“How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel…” (Ephesians 3:3-6)
