Title: “Cult Expert Rick Ross On the House of Yahweh”
Network: ABC News
Release Year: 2010
Rick Alan Ross is a private consultant, lecturer, and cult intervention specialist. He began his work as an anti-cult activist and community organizer in 1982.
Ross first became concerned about controversial groups and movements in response to a radical religious group that had covertly targeted his grandmother’s nursing home. Since that time he has raised awareness about cults and facilitated more than five hundred interventions to rescue people from cultic situations.
Ross is one of the leading experts on cults in the world today.
He has consulted with the FBI, the BATF, and various other law enforcement agencies, as well as the governments of Israel and China, on the subject of cults. Ross has been qualified, accepted and testified as an expert court witness in eleven different states within the United States including US federal court. He has worked as an expert analyst for CBS News, CBC of Canada, and Nippon and Asahi in Japan.
Ross has lectured at more than 30 universities and colleges including the University of Chicago, Dickinson College, Carnegie Mellon, Baylor, Wuhan University of China, Assumption University of Thailand and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He has also been published within peer-reviewed academic journals on the topic of cults.
Regarding his cult intervention work Ross states that historically about 75 percent of the people that he conducts an intervention with decide to leave the group by the end of such an effort. He has done interventions across the United States and around the world. Ross did two successful interventions with the notorious Branch Davidians led by self-styled messiah David Koresh.
Ross has appeared in fourteen documentaries and has been interviewed and quoted in media all over the world.

Fourteen foreigners — accused by victims’ relatives of demanding “tithes” from local followers — were detained, and at least some are in the process of being deported, said the federal attorney general’s office, or PGR. Three Mexican citizens are being held on suspicion of human trafficking, the PGR said.
Immigration authorities and police raided the Defenders of Christ group in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, the migration institute said Tuesday night. Nuevo Laredo is across the border from its sister city, Laredo, Texas. Six of the detained foreigners were Spanish, two Brazilian, two Bolivian, two Venezuelan, one Argentinean and one Ecuadorean.
The Defenders of Christ are not officially registered as a religious organization under Mexican law.
Authorities released the name of only one of those involved with the group, Jose Arenas Losanger Segovia, a Venezuelan identified as the leader of the organization, which “was characterized by its recruiting of people at the national level.”
A website for the cult identifies Losanger as an “apostle” of the reincarnation of Christ. The group believes that a man named Ignacio Gonzalez de Arriba is the reincarnation of Jesus.
Myrna Garcia, coordinator for the Support Network for Victims of Cults, says her group first received complaints about Gonzalez in December 2011. In February 2012, the group filed a complaint with authorities about the Defenders of Christ. Garcia called Gonzalez “very dangerous because he manipulates the minds of people to satisfy his whims.”
The accusations that the cult victims network gathered paint a picture of a man who forced people into labor without pay or threatened to deny food. “He was able to convince them that they had to behave in certain ways to satisfy his economic and sexual needs,” Garcia said.
Women were made to have sex with the men in the group, and polygamy was promoted in the cult, Garcia said. Women were beaten and forced to prostitute themselves, she said. Many of the victims became suicidal and lost contact with their families and children, she said.

King James Onlyism is a more recent fad (started circa 1930 by a Seventh-day Adventist & more heavily promoted in modern times by people like Dr Sam Gipp, Peter S. Ruckman & Kent Hovind). King James Onlyism is factually & historically erroneous, irresponsible & a detriment to real Christian apologetics against the arguments of an unbelieving world (for more on this see James White’s excellent video series on YOUTUBE entitled, ” What’s the Big Deal with King James Onlyism?”). See also our Christian Answers videos “Bible Translation Issue #1 & #2. on YOUTUBE by Doug Kutilek (B.A. & M.A., Baptist Bible College; knowledgeable in Biblical languages Greek & Hebrew; PhD candidate in Old Testament Hebrew at Hebrew Union College; see his “The King James Only Resource Center” at his website:
Benjamin Wilkinson –
In the investigation of King-James-Version-Onlyism, (KJVO) just such a genealogy of error can be easily traced. All writers who embrace the KJV-only position have derived their views ultimately from Seventh-day Adventist missionary, theology professor and college president, Benjamin G. Wilkinson (d.1968), and then through one of two or three of his spiritual descendants. In 1930, he wrote “Our Authorized Bible Vindicated,” a book of several hundred pages which attracted almost no attention in its day (no doubt because it was awash in a vast ocean of unmitigated error).
In that book, Wilkinson attacked the Westcott Hort Greek text, in large measure by attacking Westcott and Hort personally (the common but fallacious ad Hominem method.
He also expresses a strong opposition to the English Revised Version New Testament (1881), in particular objecting to it because it robbed Adventism of two favorite proof-texts, one allegedly teaching Gentile Sabbath keeping (Acts 13:42), the other misused by the Adventists to teach soul sleep (Hebrews 9:27).
Wilkinson’s book lay unused and unknown (and how good it would have been had its errors died with him!), until 1955 when J.J. Ray, who is self-described as a “business manager, missionary, and Bible teacher” published a little volume, “God Wrote Only One Bible” (Ray is apparently still living, but we can find out nothing about him, and he refuses to reply to certified letters; if anyone can supply specific information about this man, we would greatly appreciate it). In his book, Ray heavily plagiarized, without note or acknowledgement, Wilkinson’s book, repeating and propagating wholesale Wilkinson’s errors and misstatements (the fact of Ray’s plagiarism and dependence is documented in the article, “The Real ‘Eye Opener’,” Baptist Biblical Heritage, vol. 2, no. 1).
Ray’s book has gone through numerous printings, with total copies numbering perhaps in the tens of thousands. I first saw a copy myself in 1971 as a first year student at Baptist Bible College, Springfield, Missouri, where I was also introduced—by students from Ohio—to Ruckman’s “Bible Babel” and Fuller’s “Which Bible?” It is of interest that Ray acknowledges that there are some erroneous translations in the KJV which do demand revision (pp. 30, 31, 102). A position today’s KJVO mainstream would consider rank heresy.
David Otis Fuller –
The other chief disseminator of Wilkinson’s misinformation was David Otis Fuller, a Regular Baptist pastor. Fuller must be counted as part of the third generation, since, according to Fuller’s own words in the dedication of “Counterfeit of Genuine” (1975), Ray’s book “God Wrote Only One Bible” “moved me to begin this fascinating study.” Ray and his book were also repeatedly noted on pp. 2-4 of “Which Bible?” I imagine the scenario went something like this: Fuller reads Ray; Fuller writes Ray for more information; Ray directs Fuller to Wilkinson; Fuller reads Wilkinson, is lead astray, then reprints Wilkinson in “Which Bible?”
In 1970, Fuller issued “Which Bible?”, which was in its 5th edition by 1975 and contained 350 pages. Of those pages, almost half were taken from Ellen G. White cultist Wilkinson.

Deniers of the Biblical doctrine of the Trinity (Father, Son & Holy Spirit, Matthew 28:19) are everywhere, whether they be Muslims, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, atheists, “Oneness” Pentecostals, Hundus, or whatever. This hatred of Biblical truth runs deep. “The man who rejects it would not believe though one should rise from the dead (Luke 16:31). There are difficulties, no doubt; concerning God, on all subjects of His testimony, designedly giving an opportunity for the wickedness of the human heart to manifest its hatred of truth. Were it not for this, human nature would not so clearly be seen to be what it is. The atheist finds something plausible to object to the deist — the deist to the believer in revelation. But notwithstanding this, there is abundant evidence to convict all opposers. If, on any subject, any man contrives to object what is attested by Scripture, it is not for want of evidence, nor on the strength of difficulties, but because he loves darkness rather than light (John 3:19).” (“The Knowledge of Jesus” by the late Alexander Carson, page 92).
The Oneness Pentecostals, primarily known as the “United Pentecostal Church,” grew out the Pentecostal movement of the early 1900s. The majority of Pentecostals rejected “Oneness” teaching as well as the corresponding doctrine of the “baptismal formula” in order to be saved. A small group did accept these doctrines, however, and the movement has enjoyed some growth over the decades of time. When the “Oneness” Pentecostal “revelation” of baptism in the name of Jesus “only” appeared (based on a faulty understanding of Acts 2:38), it was immediately opposed by the argument that it called into question one’s commitment to the doctrine of the Trinity. Baptism has historically been connected with one’s commitment to the Father, the Son , and the Holy Spirit (Mat. 28:19). The new doctrine seemed to weaken the importance of this basic truth to Christianity by stating that baptism should be performed in the name of Jesus only. In response, the adherents to the Oneness doctrine proclaimed that the Trinity was not a Biblical teaching and therefore not an accurate reflection of the Christian faith (this in order to justify their “revelation” about being baptized in the name of Jesus “only” according to Acts 2:38 as being essential to salvation; proving the old adage, “one heresy begets another”).

For those that don’t know anything about Earl F. Jones, he died at age 78 at his ranch home in southern New Mexico on Wednesday September 19th 2001. He was born in West Liberty, Ohio to Frank and Mabel Kauffman Jones on May 26, 1923. He was raised in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, and just after Pearl Harbor, he and his brother, Herman Jones, volunteered into the U. S. Army. Herman, in the Paratroops, was killed in the Normandy Invasion in 1944. Earl was in the invasion also, and fought under General George Patton through all six major campaigns in Europe during World War II in the Third Army.
In May of 1943, before he left to go to war, he married Mary Alice Hignett in El Paso, Texas, when he was stationed at Fort Bliss. They were happily, lovingly married for 58 years. After the war, he returned to Las Cruces and attended New Mexico State University. He then went to work at White Sands Missile Range where he, over the course of time, became Project Manager for Engineering and Testing for the Nike Ajax Missile, then the Nike Hercules and even started the Patriot Missile program. He retired after 28 years of government service.
In 1983, he was ordained as a Christian minister by Pastor Sheldon Emry of the Lords Covenant Church and America’s Promise Ministries in Phoenix, Arizona. He remained active until the day of his death with a Christian ministry called “The Christian Crusade for Truth” and a monthly newsletter called “The Intelligence Newsletter” which you can read below. Earl Jones also spoke and hosted many Christian-Israel meetings and gatherings all around the country up until his death, and he greatly influenced people with his love for truth and the Word of God. You can listen and watch many of those sermons and lectures below. I pray that this library is a blessing to you and all who are able to use it for the advancement of the Christian faith, and our Lord Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.
