Now I'm sort of wondering if Candy discovered this new way to keep us out of her site and decided to try it out with her latest anti-Catholic screed. Here's the latest:

This is Candy's latest:

I love the Dake Annotated Reference Bible. One of the reasons I love it, is because Mr. Dake followed the same principle I do, in studying the scriptures.

This speaks volumes! Candy loves EVERY ONE who follows the same principles, way of thinking, point of view, perspective that she does! Even to the point of keeping folks who disagree with her out.

Here is info on Mr. Dake:
Finis Jennings Dake

This site was interesting - The Dake's Bible. This comes from Protestant Apologetics No one can say this is associated with a pro-Catholic page!

But here's the interesting part:

The "Dake's Bible"

& Confused Charismatic Theology

by Joseph Chambers

Many years ago, I became leery of the Dake's Bible, but never really understood why. The only thing I could identify was that those who became strong in their study of Dake also became arrogant and unteachable.

Remind you of anyone?

That entire article is worth the read to learn about the heresies in the Dake Bible.

Here's another Protestant article written by a Baptist Minister not very flattering to Dake.

I found that Jimmy Swaggart really loved Finis Dake's work. That didn't keep the Dake heirs from suing Swaggart!

In June, the heirs of the Rev. Finis Jennings Dake sued the evangelist Jimmy Swaggart, accusing him of using Mr. Dake's words without permission or attribution
And this is a VERY interesting article about Dake's heresies:

The fact is clearly seen that Mr. Dake put much work into this reference tool. However, there are severe problems with the theology contained in this work. For instance, heresies abound concerning subjects such as the nature and attributes of God, Soteriology, and Christology—just to name a few. Furthermore, many word-faith teachers, such as Benny Hinn and Kenneth Copeland, have verifiably used Dake as a source of their quizzical doctrines. The scope of this paper, however, is not a complete, systematic analysis of the Dake Annotated Reference Bible, but an analysis of what it says about Jesus.

It must be stated that Finis Jennings Dake and those who follow his teaching are not yet considered a cult. However, much of the teaching in Dake's Bible is considered cultic because it falls far outside the walls of orthodox Christianity. To be sure, there are many heretical claims concerning Jesus found in this study Bible. And with about 30,000 Dake Bibles being sold each year, this is a subject that needs to be addressed. This exploration of Dake's teaching on Jesus will be subsumed under two broad topics: Dake and the Trinity, which will exegete Dake's teaching about the very nature of Jesus before He was Incarnated into a body of flesh, and Dake and the Incarnation, which will present Dake's teaching about the Incarnation of the Second Person of the Trinity.

I can't find any information on line about Dake's education, other than he went to "bible college" and was a Pentacostal.

I think there are enough red flags here to make Dake's scholarship and exegesis with a gigantic grain of salt I do find this information quite helpful in understanding Mrs. Brauer's theology.

That was my thought, exactly!

Candy has said before that she doesn't agree with all of Dake's notes, and I believe that his view of the Trinity and the gap theory (I don't know what that is, actually) were two that she mentioned.

I just got done reading through these links, and they were great! What a lot of good information there.

I loved that one of the sites was "Ex-Orthodox Christians." I always felt the Eastern Orthodox got a free pass from fundamentalists. Good to see they get the same bashing we do, sometimes. :)

I think gap theory relates to verses about "standing in the gap". The outlandishly heretical Rebecca Brown has quite a bit to say about that, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if her books were on Candy's bookshelf.

Hank Haanegraf, the Bible Answer Man, has this article on his website:

You certainly could never accuse HIM of being pro-Catholic, either!

Gap Theory is about trying to shoehorn evolution into creation...saying that since in other places, the Bible says that a day is as a thousand years, that maybe there was 7 days of craetion, but millions of years's all hogwash though, and not to be belived. 7 days, is 7 days.
