 Dispensations

 Scofield Study Bible Altered, Anti-Islam Text Inserted
Prior to 1908, bibles did not include or reference today's agenda; Palestine and the Holy Land are referred to as Palestine and a number of other names, but never as Israel.
The report details the role of the Oxford University Press owned Scofield Bible in controlling Christian thought, effectively creating Christian Zionism from the ranks of the emerging evangelicalism, and how it was then transformed into radical anti-Islamic bias.
This report may be the first to compare the several successive editions of the Scofield Reference Bible since 1908, to demonstrate a pernicious, pro-Israel political bias inserted between the lines of the respected King James Edition.
