    G. A. Riplinger seems to be a popular author among some groups of fundamental Baptists.

    Below is a web address that has some claims about Riplinger that may concern some fundamentalists

    www.avpublications.org

    Does anyone know the person who is the webmaster or maker of that web site?

    The claims do not affect my view of Gail A Riplinger. But, then I view her as a schismatic.
    The site does offer third party references including civil court records. It is of course not exhaustive but it's good for what it is.

    I read two of Gail Riplinger’s books, New Age Bible Versions, and Which Bible is God’s Word. IMHO she is a bonifide conspiracy nut job. Her work is contradictory, fragmented, misquotes numerous sources or quotes them out of context, it is lacking a clear thesis and purpose and is impossible to understand as a unified whole.

    The fact that she is divorced should come as no surprise since she is held in high esteem by the Ruckman crowd and his stand as a divorced pastor is well documented. Read her books if you want, but be informed. I still have her books in my personal library but each has several pages of notes attached where I documented errors and they are marked up with my personal notes in case anyone else reads them in the future.

    Add to all of that the fact that she is a female preacher, standing up before men, even groups of preachers, and teaching them directly contrary to the Word of God. I'm amazed that IFBs (and I am one, just so no newbie misunderstands) would allow this when they would immediately object to a woman pastor!

    John, it shows what they truly care about...

    They care so much in her "cause" that they set their principles to the side in order to foster her false doctrine.


    I have to say though that I found her amusing when she mentioned the question mark looks like a serpent!
    I guess following her logic the Spanish really like Satan since they have 2 question marks in their sentences.

    This woman is a fruitcake... I can't believe any man of God would take her seriously...

    But that may be the problem... those that support her do not care what God says... and how can you be a man of God if you don't care what God says? (ooops, I used that satanic symbol.. (?) )

    Actually I could say that this symbol looks more satanic... @ It looks like a coiled up snake... and after all, it is a well known symbol of the satanic invention called the internet.... Oh wait, Satan didn't invent the internet... Al Gore did...

    Hmmmmm...... gotta ponder that fact!

    Alas, I fear you are right, Brother Tim.

    Gail Riplinger's site

    I have been informed the link in the OP quoted below is a parallel anti-Riplinger site. Such is common in the Internet wars. It is a matter of subsituting a .org for a .com in an address.

    Please note Mrs. Ludwig-Riplinger's website

    http:/_/www.avpublications.com/

    is listed but is not linked to nor did I make a link to the woman's site.

    Squire, also note that the site to which Logos provided the link is called "AUTHENTIC versions" insteada "Authorized Version".

    Personally, I don't care if she's been married/divorced more times than Zsa Zsa Gabor & Liz Taylor combined...it's her TALL TALES ABOUT GOD'S WORD that concerns me.

    I disagree with those who say she's a poor writer. Actually, she's an EXCELLENT writer. Her boox makeya wanna keep reading onceya start. It takes writing talent to produce worx fulla misinformation, to write them so skillfully that many people take that info at face value, without bothering to check its VERACITY.

    Well, this ole boy HAS checked the veracity of what she's presented, and has found the allegations of misquotes of other authors to be VERY TRUE. Here's a link to some of them, which I took the time to verify in a large library that had the boox from which she quoted:

    http://www.kjvonly.org/other/riplinger_lockman_pr.htm

    I hope all of you who support GAR or would liketa know the TRUTH about her material will take time to go behind me & do what I have done, to see for YOURSELVES!

    How about the info in her umpteen charts? How RELIABLE is it? Not very! As a certain Austrian corporal once did, she tells mosta the truth mosta the time, but sprinkles it with her own "recipes".

    Examples:(Found in NABV)

    On page 179 her chart chart showingnine instances in which the "NIV, NASV, et al." translates the KJV's "rejoicing" as "pride." In fact, three of these are NOT translated "pride" in the NIV, but are translated "boast" and "joy" (2 Cor. 1:12,14; Phil. 1:26).

    She lovesta pick on the NIV...but just HOW ACCURATE is she? Lessee...her chart on page 187 claims the "NIV, NASB, et al." reads, "But what is the divine response" in Rom. 11:4. In fact, the NIV reads "And what was God's answer to him?" which is what the KJV says. And on the very next page she writes the "New Versions" omit the words "in him" in 2 Cor. 5:21. In fact, both the NIV and the NASB retain these words. Check it out for yourselves.

    I believe mosta you have seen these examples...but how many of you have actually CHECKED THEM OUT? I believe that, if you who support her boox WILL check these things out for yourselves, free of pre-conceived notions, you will be in for a shock & a possibly-rude awakening. There are simply NO VALID EXCUSES to cover GAR's deliberate teletelling in her boox. Anyone can make a mistake in writing, anyone can accidentally tell something that isn't true because he/she had no reason to not believe it true, any publishing house or printer can make a typo....but there are simply TOO MANY misquotes and charts containing INCORRECT INFO in her boox for it to have been anything but DELIBERATE.

    READ & DECIDE FOR YOURSELVES, BROS & SISses.

    Wait a min, are you saying that Satan and Al Gore are two different people?

    Man, that messes up my end of times prophecy timeline all to pieces. And it means Hillery can't be the antichrist.

    Yeah, I've heard of one country at least where it's called "monkey tail."

    Along that line, Ruckman and some of his aspirants have made much of words with the letter X in them. Demonic types like X. They'll rewrite words to include it, making "chicks" into "chix," etc. So we are warned to beware when X shows up in places where it shouldn't.

    Makes me leery of Torx screwdrivers, Chex cereal, and when the beginning player beats me at tic-tac-toe.
