How many of us thought Wycliffe was a Biblical and conservative organization? Well compared to the Bible it is not, and I must admit this set me on my ear! Putting the pieces of this puzzle together shed a whole new light onto Wycliffe’s history leading up to today with them creating an Islamsized Bible to the invention of Chrislam. Below is an excerpt from Dr. David Cloud, Way of Life Literature,
Founder Cameron Townsend established Wycliffe on a doctrinally compromised, ecumenical foundation. In light of Wycliffe Bible Translators’ commendable goal and the sacrifice made by its missionaries to bring the Word of God to those who sit in darkness, it is sad to have to document the great doctrinal compromise of this organization. Yet we are commanded to “prove all things” (1 Thess. 5), to compare all teaching with the Scriptures (Acts 17:11), and to beware of every wind of false doctrine (Eph. 4:14), so we cannot ignore this matter. Unlike its namesake, John Wycliffe, who stood boldly against Roman Catholic heresies and was subsequently persecuted by Catholic authorities, Wycliffe Bible Translators has been ecumenical and pro-Roman Catholic from its inception. The Lord Jesus commanded that we beware of false prophets and the apostles warned us to mark and avoid those who preach false doctrine (Rom. 16:17) and those who hold false gospels, false christs, and false spirits (2 Cor. 11). Instead of obeying these solemn commands, Wycliffe Bible Translators has yoked together with heretics and apostates. WYCLIFFE BIBLE TRANSLATORS AND ROME – Way of Life Literature (source for quote)

If you are one of Wycliffe or a supporter that has stumbled upon our page you are guilty of egregious error! Your ecumenism and syncretism to bring in other religions has led to the invention of what is being called Chrislam doing the work of the Devil in my opinion.
Acts 13:10 “And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, [thou] child of the devil, [thou] enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?”
You have forgotten we serve a JEALOUS GOD,
Exodus 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name [is] Jealous, [is] a jealous God:
– Our God is EXCLUSIVE of any others! Yet Wycliffe that took on the honorable job of translating His Holy Word would pervert it to remove its offenses to the lost!? How can you not see the Bible is True Truth and immutable unless you are not one of His children and totally blind?
Can I possibly say it any stronger? All I know are my future articles on this topic will be to point people away from the likes of Wycliffe to other organizations that are translating the Bible and not rewriting it! It is time for Biblical Christians, meaning Christian that take the Five Solas of the Reformation seriously to stand against those promoting such blatant ecumenism and syncretism.
I hope those of you finding my message today will benefit from it now and possibly for eternity.
