Bible Secrets Revealed: Hidden Messages of the Holy Book

If there is one thing one can say about the Holy Bible it's that everyone has an opinion about it, and no two of these opinions are alike. That alone demonstrates how difficult it is to "reveal" the secrets of the Bible, but that alone is certainly not enough to dissuade the intrepid folks at the History Channel from trying. It has long been said that fools rush in where angels fear to tread, and that is certainly applicable here. The producers' select committee on the Bible, who provide the expert commentary, are all scholars with exceptional reputations in the academic world, and they were obviously all selected so as to get the message across with minimal offense to the History Channel sponsors, which is always the goal when the subject is controversial. Perhaps it is commentary on the dearth of quality programming of this type to say that this is as good as it gets, but that does seem to be the case. And, that being said, fear not, for you will be entertained. If you keep in mind that biblical scholars don't get to be biblical scholars by professing their love for Jesus, then you'll keep the upper hand on perspective necessary to benefit from this material. Bible Secrets Revealed begins tonight with "Hidden Messages of the Holy Book," and we will continue with additional episodes from this series for the balance of the week. As for keeping the scholars honest, that's what we're along for.

Tonight we continue with Bible Secrets Revealed, which more accurately could be called "What the Bible Says if you Actually Read It." Jesus was right when he said that there was nothing hidden that would not be revealed, but if most of what you hear about tonight is hidden, it is hiding in plain sight. The stories of the Bible are important because they are just that: stories. Collectively, they tell the larger story of the origin of our Western, Christian civilization, and do so without a self conscious need for justification, and certainly with no sense of having to provide historical proofs so that the reader will believe. That's the test the secularized, modernist scholars decided to apply, and it assumes that if God does not subscribe to scientific norms, and submit Himself to historical method, then they will just have to assume He does not exist, and write Him out of His own history. The rebellion against God that we witness all around us in this world, was, in this way, fostered, fomented and introduced into society through the academic community, which has a long track record in denying God's Truth in favor of a pseudo-scientific method of inquiry which is rigged to do just that. In the end, one either believes or one doesn't, and there is nothing in the archaeological record that either proves or disproves anything spiritual. And whenever you hear a lack of evidence cited as evidence for anything, then know that the scholar so-called is deviating from sound historical method, not employing it. Historians have a name for this technique: it's called "bullshitting."

The Sixth Hour Program No. 563

The idea of "Forbidden Scriptures" is something of a misnomer. And not making the canon of the Bible is not the same as being condemned. Keep that in mind as you listen. The "catholization" or "universalizing" of the Church, which took place beginning in the 4th century, was for the purpose of bringing the traditions based upon the teachings of the individual apostles back into line with what was accepted by all to be the true teachings of Jesus as given to the disciples collectively. Forming a common Scripture was a monumental task that was hammered out over three councils, and the final result is as much a human marvel as it is a divine revelation. Hence all the controversy. Apocryphal works like the books of Enoch, the Adam and Eve stories, and the pseudepigrapha ascribed to various patriarchs and apostles, were surely better known in their own day than in ours, and the idea that all ignorance was dispelled concerning all of this literature during the 19th and 20th centuries was poppycock then and now. And the false teaching that the Church Fathers were merely charlatans out to fool the world into believing in Jesus for their own gain is an outgrowth of the "God Is Dead" nonsense of the 1960's, as well as the "paganization" of Christianity that has been pushed by Gnostic scholars like Elaine Pagels and her students. Students of history, who are also students of Jesus, know better.

If the scholarly types were going to continually rain on God's parade, then the folks at the History Channel in charge of this production had to inject some controversy and drama into this project, or nobody would be around to see this "The Real Jesus" episode, which is why they spent the big money and brought in Elaine Pagels. At least that's the way we have it figured. Dr. Pagels has spent more time at Princeton than the children of Israel spent in the wilderness, and she has staked her fame, and built her fortune, on pushing the Gnostic cult that produced the Nag Hammadi scrolls, which actually aren't scrolls at all but codices. Now the Gnostics were heretics and suppressed by the Catholic Church of their day, which didn't encourage such heresies the way the Church of Pope Francis does. When heretics and heretical writings were burned, and the heresy so eliminated, one might suppose that the Church had good reason for doing so. It was certainly assumed so then. And when that heresy is released back into the world through the academic community, particularly through big, name brand universities like Princeton, then people tend to believe it and discard orthodoxy as if it were the heresy. Next thing you know, Jesus is married to Mary Magdalene, they're grooming children for sex at school, and Catholics are wondering how Vatican II made our priests and bishops gay. As you listen keep all that in mind, and you'll figure out in a hurry why the Gnostics were suppressed to begin with.

Bible Secrets Revealed concludes tonight with this final episode called "Mysterious Prophecies," which is what most of you have been waiting for, now isn't it? Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, and the Book of Revelation itself, and all the carnage and mayhem of the last days that they describe, and it's now setting up and taking place all around us, and in no uncertain terms. Say what you will, nobody sells Doomsday like the History Channel, and surely our intrepid team of scholars must have been encouraged by the producers to see La Mano Poderosa, the All Powerful Hand of God Himself, at work in all of this. But undaunted by the thunderous sound and awesome visual effects, each continues to speak ex cathedra from the chair of whatever professorship he or she holds, as if with this position of imagined authority comes the superior knowledge that this is all just nonsense, put down in writing by ignorant and primitive people, lacking the perspective of a college education. That last part is certainly true enough, but by now you should be seeing that as a distinct advantage when it comes to understanding God, rather than some sort of a crucial lack of knowledge. Knowing wrong things doesn't help much when the chips are down and real things are staring one right in the face. And if the Catholic Church has joined the Gnostics, know that Jesus hasn't and He'll come back and deal with all of this Himself if we won't. In the end, that's what the apocalypse is all about, and that's the part they don't teach you at university. See? I told you at the outset we were along for a reason.

Chaplain Phil

Chaplain Phil grew up listening to alternative points of view, and the underground perspective, that characterized late night AM and shortwave radio in the 1960's.  In the cold winter months following the events that transpired in Dallas on November 22, 1963, he came to realize that the death of President Kennedy represented an even deeper and more profound tragedy - the death of the nation. In the summer of 1964, he read None Dare Call It Treason by John Stormer and understood how this had come to pass.  He was 10 years old.

Through the ensuing years, he has followed the flow of free information, as what we now call the "mainstream media" banished independent Christian broadcasting, and honest political thought, from the AM band to shortwave, then to the internet, and now, in the face of internet censorship, back to shortwave.  After a lifetime of listening, he now feels the time has come to speak.  His message is simple.  We are living in a godless false reality created for the purpose of destroying most of us and enslaving the rest.

The time of Revelation is here. Take heart.  For what is being revealed is the eternal truth of Jesus Christ.

Catholic Pirate Radio

What is Catholic Pirate Radio?

Pirate radio or a pirate radio station is a radio station that broadcasts without a valid license.  Catholic Pirate Radio is broadcast without the official sanction or approval of the Catholic Church, any of its connected agencies or organizations, or any member of its hierarchical structure (bishops, cardinals, pope, etc.).

He can do the miraculous." - Mother Angelica

    Mother Angelica: Queen of Catholic Pirate Radio

Mother Mary Angelica founded the EWTN television network, and, more significantly for my purposes here, WEWN, a global shortwave broadcast service with transmitters located in Irondale, Alabama.  In the 1990's, Mother Angelica became one of the most dominant Christian voices on the shortwave bands, and WEWN a torch that beamed her message of the truth of believing and faithful Catholicism across the nation and the world.  She was a major influence concerning my conversion to the Catholic Faith in 2002, and it is truthful to say that my formation as a Catholic took place with her over many nights of listening to the most powerful voice on 41 meters.  She gets much credit for her pioneering work in Catholic television, while her savvy for international shortwave broadcasting goes largely unheralded and is just as significant.  It made her a worldwide voice for the faith rather than just an American phenomenon, and paved the way for the globalization of EWTN.

Mother Angelica earned the title of Queen of Catholic Pirate Radio when she publicly took on and disputed the apostate Archbishop of Los Angeles, Roger Cardinal Mahony, concerning the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist.  While Mahony was unleashing his wrath upon Mother all the way to Rome, it should also be noted that he retreated quickly and issued a statement taking offense at her for daring to question his belief in the Real Presence.  Thanks to Mother's widespread and profound media influence, I'm sure a lot of bishops, cut from the same cloth as Mahoney, also thought twice about peddling the "Spirit of Vatican II" nonsense in an overt way that might end up on TV.         

Here's some vintage Mother for you: 
I’m so tired of you liberal Church in America! And everything you’ve ever done has gone in silence. Nothing, nothing you’ve done – from your witchcraft to your enneagrams to your centering prayer to all this ‘earth spirituality’ to replacing holy water with sand to destroying our churches and closing churches that are viable and ready to go…no, this is not an accident. We’ve swallowed this now for thirty years. I’m tired of it. We have swallowed enough of your idea of God! You have, really, no God, no dogma, no doctrine, and no authority, because the only authority in the Catholic Church is our Holy Father and the Magisterium, and you have disclaimed that. You don’t believe in the Eucharist, you don’t believe in the Immaculate Conception, you don’t believe in the Virgin Birth, you don’t believe in Mary’s power of intercession, you don’t believe in religious life, you don’t believe in being a spouse of Christ! You do believe in teaching to little children in the third grade sex education, you do believe in forcing centering prayer and forcing inclusive language upon us, and now you depict Jesus as a woman?!  You’re sick!
Nothing to add to that.  As a layman, my duty as a Catholic is to point out these things just as it was Mother's duty as a religious - a Carmelite nun.  She taught me well.  It's time for Catholic Pirate Radio, the next generation.

    Father Charles Coughlin: Father of Pirate Radio

In 1926, Father Charles Coughlin first took to the airwaves on WJR radio in Detroit to denounce the Ku Klux Klan, which had recently burned crosses on the grounds of his parish.  Turning to politics in 1929, Father Coughlin quickly became a dominant and highly influential radio voice on the CBS network, with a weekly listening audience estimated at 30,000,000 during the peak of his popularity in the early 1930's.  While at first a fervent supporter of the policies and person of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, his views became more controversial and his rhetoric more strident as the Great Depression lingered on.  By 1936, he was expressing a viewpoint that was anti-capitalist and anti-socialist, and invoked no little controversy by expressing a certain sympathy concerning the fascism of Benito Mussolini and Adolph Hitler.  He was accused of anti-Semitism based upon this and his searing critique of the European Jewish banking establishment, which he sought to qualify as follows: 

My purpose is to help eradicate from the world its mania for persecution, to help align all good men, Catholic and Protestant, Jew and Gentile, Christian and non-Christian, in a battle to stamp out the ferocity, the barbarism and the hate of this bloody era. I want the good Jews with me, and I'm called a Jew baiter, an anti-Semite.

My point here is not to speak out for or against Father Coughlin and his political opinions, but merely to point to him as an early example of the efforts to censor and silence unpopular viewpoints.  He remains the textbook example of church and state teaming up to remove from public influence someone deemed too controversial to have his views heard by the great unwashed masses of the general public.  The Roosevelt Administration determined a priori that the First Amendment did not apply to radio broadcasting, and new regulations and restrictions were created specifically to remove Father Coughlin from the airwaves.  For the first time, public broadcasters had to obtain a permit and seek approval to speak on the air, and this was the impetus for those who refused to do so taking to the airwaves in protest: the birth of pirate radio.  While Father Coughlin was able to circumvent his banishment from network broadcasting by buying airtime on local stations, his reach and influence were drastically reduced.  In 1942 he was ordered to remove himself from public life by Bishop Edward Aloysius Mooney.  He complied without complaint and spent the remainder of his career as parish priest at the Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak, Michigan.  He retired from active ministry in 1966.


Welcome to our broadcast facilities here at RNJ.  This is where Chaplain Phil and our crew make the magic happen.  Stars of the Show are a Sweetwater Studio Computer powering Jean and Ginger, two 1950 Canadian Philips Table Radios that serve as broadcast monitors. That's Ginger on the right channel, and Jean on the left. Auxilliary Computer is "Old Faithful," a 2009 Hewlett Packard (that's like about a 1930 model in American Tube Radio Years (ATRY). You'll also notice three communication receivers, two 1959 Hallicrafters S-108's and a 1947 National NC 57. Standby monitors include a 1937 Coronado 725 and 1953 Philco 53-960. It's all sorted out through a Behringer Xenyx 802 Mixer.  Our antenna array (not shown) is an 80 foot sloping copper long wire antenna, fastened to a Royal Palm and running from there to the studio.
