Mistakes of Scofield Theology Part 1: A Few Lies of Scofield by “Let God Be True”

A Few Lies of Scofield

Plain evidence condemning C.I. Scofield
(1843-1921) as a liar in spreading one of
the most damnable systems of prophetic
misinterpretation ever foisted on the saints.

This from Lifeway of the SBC, online, is the newest Scofield Reference Bible from Oxford with look at the image on it: The Bible should reflect the image of Christ, “Let this mind be in you which was the Christ, that made Himself of no reputation”.

“Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”
Proverbs 30:5-6

“Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.”
Titus 1:14

Scofield’s Other Sins Against God

  1. He put his own name on God’s inspired scriptures and sold it as his Bible and necessary for learning.
  2. He added his words to the words of God with little or no distinction between them (Rev 22:18).
  3. He added center-column statements that certain verses of the Bible should be deleted and notes
    casting doubt on other verses – see Acts 8:37 and Mark 16:9, respectively (Rev 22:19; Gen 3:1).
  4. He took a Bible without a copyright, added his words, and sold it as a copyrighted book (Titus 1:11).
  5. His New Scofield Reference Bible (1967) included absurd and unwarranted alterations to the KJV
    text like the insertion of an ellipsis in I Samuel 13:1 and question marks in Romans 8:33-34.

A Short Statement of Faith by the Church of Greenville


We are Baptists, like John the Baptist, our Lord, His apostles, and many martyrs. We only baptize believers and only by immersion to show a picture of our Lord’s burial and resurrection. We reject all infant sprinklings as abominations of the false church in Rome. (Matt 3:13-17Mark 16:16John 3:23Romans 6:3-5I Peter 3:21).


We believe God chose to save some of rebellious mankind before the world began for the praise of His glorious grace and to leave the rest under condemnation for the praise of His wrath and power. Jesus died only for the elect, and the Spirit regenerates only them. The pure gospel is good news only for elect and regenerate hearers. (John 6:37-39Rom 8:29-399:10-24Eph 1:3-12II Tim 1:9-10).

KJV Bible

We are Bible Christians. Without Scripture, we cannot know Jesus Christ. God inspired and preserved His words perfectly. Each is vital to truth. Satan attacked God’s words in Eden, and he attacks them today with many false versions and proud skeptical attitudes. (Psalm 12:6-7119:128Pr 8:8-9II Tim 3:16-17II Pet 1:16-21).

Simple Services

We want our assemblies to copy the apostolic churches. We find no evidence for Sunday Schools, pianos, statues, flags, plays, or other inventions. We stress Bible reading and preaching, prayer, spiritual singing, thanksgiving, the Lord’s Supper, and fellowship. (Acts 2:42-47Eph 5:18-21I Cor 11:1-2II Tim 4:1-4Heb 10:23-25).

Plain Preaching

We believe God sent ministers to preach the word to perfect His saints. Most Christians want entertainment today, but we exalt detailed teaching of God’s word. We believe every word of God, and we want to hear it taught boldly on every subject it touches. (Neh 8:1-12I Cor 2:1-5I Timothy 4:13-15II Tim 3:16-174:1-4).

Holy Living

We believe God’s true children will live holy lives. God is holy, and He wants us holy. True Christians do not befriend the world, will not conform their standards to the world, and will defy and overcome the world. We teach, expect, and enforce godly living. (Romans 12:1-2II Cor 7:1James 4:4I Pet 2:11I John 2:15-17)
