Response to "Bogus Dr. Fales" article.

Response to web site entitled "Bogus Dr. Fales". 

  

Response to online site entitled: BOGUS 'DR' FALES at:

www.yorkshiretales.com/allaboutmormonism/page_bogus_dr_fales.php  [Page FOUND!]

I met Dr. Richard M. Fales in 1971.  We have remained close friends since (currently, November 2014).  The article, noted above, takes many liberties and states some outright lies about Dr. Fales.  The web site appears to be authored by the Mormons. 

***********************************************************************************************************************************

NOTE: It is not authored by The Mormons, but by a Mormon, Ronnie Bray as the website make crystal clear!

************************************************************************************************************************************

  

Dr. Fales production of the God Makers Film in the early 1980's has done, I believe, great harm to the progress of Mormonism, which is, in my opinion, the ONLY reason the "BOGUS DR FALES" web site exists.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87Mr0TqrEf8  [404 (Page Not Found) Error]

The web site lists "the only real credential" of Dr. Fales as being the pastor of one church in California. However, I was a member of a church in 1971 and 1972 where he was senior pastor for several years before I came there.  In addition, I served as his assistant pastor at another church in Florida for about two years. 

I attended a church in Southern California with him in the early 1990's where he introduced me to his pastor and the pastor bragged on Dr. Fales to me thanking God that Dr. Fales was on ministerial staff there (at that time).  And, I know of the "one church" the article denotes as one of his pastorates. 

  

I know, personally, that he has served as a professor in a Bible University and as a President of a Bible University. see

http://www.shepherduniversity.edu/english/html02/content10.p[404 (Page Not Found) Error]  
 
 I have first-hand knowledge of him leading archeological excavations in Israel.  I  have first-hand knowledge of him speaking around the world on various biblical topics.  His credentials far exceed being a pastor of one church.

  

The web site notes that Dr. Fales has "only written one book and that book is entitled, 'At the Edge of the Railroad,"' and states that, "nothing else but this one book can be found authored by Dr. Fales".  

I have that book in my library. I also have his book entitled, "Koine Greek", which can be purchased at
http://www.amazon.com/Koine-Greek-Richard-Fales/dp/1847283829.  [404 (Page Not Found) Error]  

Anyone can read just a few of his  many articles on line at

http://www.drfalesbaa.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=23&Itemid=31 [404 (Page Not Found) Error]  

and http://carm.org/hasnt-bible-been-rewritten-so-many-times-we-cant-trust-it-anymore2[404 (Page Not Found) Error]  

  

Just type in any search engine, "Richard M. Fales articles", "Richard M. Fales" or "Richard Fales". 

The Morman [He probably means 'Mormon"] article criticizes Dr. Fales for, supposedly, stating he graduated from Southern Baptist Seminary.  One of his degrees is from "Southern Bible Seminary".  This misstatement by the Mormon web site could be overlooked as simply their confusion because of the name similarities if it were not for the other blatant misrepresentations of fact. 

  

The Mormon site claims that "Dr. Fales stated, in writing, that he graduated from Baptist Bible College", however his education posted online http://www.shepherduniversity.edu/english/html02/content10.p[404 (Page Not Found) Error]  states no such thing.  In all the years I have known him, he has never stated to me that he graduated from Baptist Bible College; however, he has stated to me that he "attended" that school. 

  

There are other misstatements of facts on the pro-Mormon web site; however, I have given you enough evidence that the information on that site, that is critical of Dr. Fales, is "bogus", not Dr. Richard M. Fales.  

  

Sincerely,

Rev. Joda Collins

Milton, FL 32583

  

  

  

It is, perhaps, significant that the only active link in Mr Collins' website, 'Response to web site entitled "Bogus Dr. Fales," is the one that leads his searchers to my own site! 

I do not know Mr Collins but can assure him that the information printed in red on my page detailing the "Bogus Dr. Fales" is taken from Fales' own published material and that of his supporters.

I have invented nothing, and Collins' attempt to establish Fales' credentials would be more compelling if he had taken the trouble to put some actual links  in his web pages rather than merely adding more bogus stuff to fales already long list of bogus material.

Mr Collins is invited to amend his crippled site with some live links that lead to verifiable information about Bogus "DR" Fales. If he is able to supply this, then I will be pleased to make such corrections as are necessary provided they do not contradict what Fales and his Minions have already published. 

Unless and until that happens, the page stay as it is, grumblers bnotwithstanding. What Collins calls "miststaments from the Mormon website" are actual quotes from Fales' websites describing his credentials.

Perhaps Fales and Collins could meet up and get their stories straight?  Until then, Pastor Collins can only repeat what Fales has told him. Such is the power of authority!

  

 
In his own resume, Joda Collins cites Fales' doctoral degree as coming from California Pacific School of Theology. Of this organisation, Wikipedia offers the following:
 
 
California Pacific School of Theology is a religious non-profit corporation, registered by the State of California, as recorded, December 9, 1998.[citation needed] As such it has degree granting authority under the California BPPE.

  

In mid 2006, the institution was accredited with the Association of Christian Colleges and Theological Schools (ACCTS).

http://web.archive.org/web/20070526051002/www.californiapacific.org/h/admin.html  

However, at one time ACCTS was not a recognized higher education accreditor by the state of Oregon.[Accreditation, Oregon State Office of Degree Authorization website]

Pacific International University notes on its webpage that approval by groups including ACCTS "do NOT constitute accreditation by the U.S. Office of Education."

http://www.osac.state.or.us/oda/accreditation.html     

  

In 2005- mid 2006, the California Pacific School of Theology stated that "academic degrees are awarded by Pacific International University, in association with California Pacific School Of Theology, Glendale, CA, which is located in Australia and Missouri and officially chartered for degree giving purposes by the state of Missouri."

http://web.archive.org/web/20070526051002/www.californiapacific.org/h/admin.html 

Pacific International University itself lacked educational accreditation, as of June 2006. The states of Michigan and Oregon noted that diplomas from this institution are not recognized degrees and may be fraudulent to claim as equivalent to four-year degrees.
