The Bible
The basis for all knowledge about God and His will for our lives.

 

   This course will be a comprehensive study of the Scriptures as a whole.  Origins, inspiration, preservation, and comparisons between the various major translations and the original texts from which they are derived are just some of the subjects that will be addressed.

    When you complete this course you should have a good working knowledge of the history and reliability of God's Word, specifically the KJV, as compared with the other major translations and the various lines of original texts from which all translations have been derived.  In addition you will also have the resources needed to dispute any heresies concerning it's inspiration in the originals and its preservation in the English since 1611 and in the New Testament and Old Testament original languages for the last three millennia.

METHOD OF STUDY

Attention: Read all of the instructions on this page before proceeding to the class.
 

  • You are required to read the Textbook in conjunction with the Workbook.
    Textbook - The Doctrinal Chaos of the Translations, by Dr. T.E. VanBuskirk

  • You are required to read the Workbook in conjunction with the Textbook.
    Workbook - Doctrinal Chaos of the Translations by Dr. VanBuskirk

  • You are required to look up every scripture referenced in both the textbook and the workbook, in your KJV Bible.

  • TESTING:  Make sure you read and submit the Testing Instructions form if you have not already done so.
        Only ONE COPY of the Testing Instruction form is required from each student.  Do not submit more than one copy.
    - Name entry on tests:
      Students are required to use proper letter-case when inputting their names on all submissions to the college.  Example: If your name is John Smith, then input John Smith, not john smith or JOHN SMITH.  If you do not use proper letter-case when you input your name on a test, then the test will be Disallowed and discarded.
    -
    ATTENTION: You MAY NOT take any test more than once on any one day but must wait until at least the next day to repeat the test should you fail it.
    - RESULTS PAGE of tests:  Sometimes tests do not submit properly.  This can be due to a glitch in the test, a problem with your computer, or an Internet problem.  Therefore, students are required to save a copy of the Results Page of every test that they take.  This is necessary so that if a test does not submit properly the student will have a copy of the Results page to submit to us upon our request.  (Do NOT send it unless we request that you do so.)  The copy of the Results Page can then be placed in your academic file in lieu of the actual test.
       
    You can click HERE for instructions for saving a copy of the Results Page to your computer.  You may want to print out a copy of those instructions or else you can save an electronic copy to your computer.


    NOTE: TO AVOID ANY CONFUSION ON THE ATTENDANCE/STUDY/TESTING
    REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS COURSE PLEASE READ AND MAKE A NOTE
    OF THE FOLLOWING
    !

    Student may not complete more than one section of the workbook in
    any two week period nor complete more than one section of the
    workbook in any two week period and must read the textbook
    concurrent with each section of the workbook and look up
    every scripture referenced in the King James Bible.

    Student may NOT turn in tests at less than 2 week, that is 14 day,
    intervals.  Tests are to be submitted on or after the 14th day after
    the day the student passed the previous test in the series.
    The 14 day period required between tests begins the day after
    passing a test and not on the day the test was passed.

    Any tests turned in before the 14 day period has elapsed
    will be disallowed and discarded and the student
    will have to repeat the test at the proper time.
    To compute the minimum date for taking
    a test, simply add 14 to the date of
    your last test.

    All tests are "open book" tests.  Because they are "open
    book" tests, then the answers generally are the exact
    wording of the textbook or workbook or the
    KJV Bible, whichever is appropriate.

 

  • SECTION TESTS:  Links to the section tests are in the textbook.  All section tests are open book tests, which means you may use your textbook and workbook to assist you while taking the test.  Because the tests are "open book" then the answers must be the exact wording of the textbook, workbook, or the Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question.
    - Take
    those tests after completing each corresponding section in the workbook.
    NOTE: If you miss any questions on any test, whether or not you received a passing score, then you must restudy that section of the textbook or workbook, whichever is appropriate, and find all of the correct answers within the textbook, the workbook, or the Bible, whichever is appropriate, to the questions that you missed on the test.  You will have your copy of the test which was automatically emailed to you with the correct answers on it for comparison purposes to make sure you have found the correct answer in the text(s).  After you have found all of the correct answers in the text(s), then you may go on to the next section.

  • ATTENDANCE
     For the complete course: Overall attendance for the entire course is 16 weeks minimum.
      The Final Test may be taken on or after the first day of the 17th week, computed from the date of your submission of the Sign In form to "Begin" this course.  A Sign In form marked "Finish" is required before submitting the Password Retrieval form.
    For each lesson in the course: Each lesson requires a minimum of 2 weeks attendance.
        Section tests can be turned in on or after the 14th day of the required two weeks of attendance.  The 2 weeks required attendance for the next lesson begins the day AFTER successfully passing the current test and then finding the answers to all questions missed either in the workbook, the textbook, or the Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question.

  • SIGN-IN first for this course and mark the form "Begin" unless you have done so previously.  You do not sign in when you finish each lesson.  You only do so and mark the form "Finish" when you have completed the entire course and you are ready for the Final Test.

  • Download and print the COURSE RECORD FORM.  On it you will keep a record of your sign in "Begin" date because you will be required to enter it on the Sign In "Finish" form that you will submit at the end of the entire course.  You will also keep other pertinent information on that form such as date and score for each test so that you will be able to keep track of your progress through the course.

  • FINAL TEST: The link to the Final Test is at the end of the textbook.
    Once you have completed all sections of the workbook and completed reading the textbook, and passed all of the corresponding tests, and found the correct answers to any questions missed on any test, then you may Retrieve the Password and, upon receiving the Password, take the Final Test for the course.
    - Name entry on tests:  Students are required to use proper letter-case when inputting their names on all submissions to the college.  Example: If your name is John Smith, then input John Smith, not john smith or JOHN SMITH.  If you do not use proper letter-case when you input your name on a test, then the test will be Disallowed and discarded.

    Once you pass the final test do not take it again.
    - If you  fail the Final Test then you need to restudy the relevant sections in the workbook, textbook, or the Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question, corresponding to the questions missed and all of the section tests previously taken and then retake the final test. Repeat this process until you pass the Final Test; however, you may not take the Final Test, or any other test, more than once on any one day. If you need to repeat any tests you may do so on or after the next day after you failed the test.
    If you miss any questions on the Final Test, even though you have passed it, then you are required to review the textbook and/or workbook and all of the section tests and find the correct answers in the textbook and/or workbook to the questions you answered incorrectly.

  • Please submit a BEGIN SIGN IN FORM to Begin this course if you have not already done so.

  • Record Keeping: Download and print a Course Record Form on which to keep all pertinent data for this course.  You will need the information later and the form will also help you stay on track with the course.
