Anti-Anderson Conference: This Time It's Personal!
So after the Keith Gomez gave the prelude that I covered in the previous post, Sam Gipp got up to preach the final sermon of the Anti-Anderson Conference. The sermon mainly consisted of wild speculations, accusations, and lies about me personally.
One thing that he made a big deal about was stating that I received more than a million dollars from the government in a settlement regarding the border patrol incident that I was involved in back in April 2009. He then went on to say that I am no longer against border patrol checkpoints now that I have been paid. The truth is that when I sued the government in that case, it was thrown out by a federal judge, and I received nothing! In fact, that incident cost me over $10,000 of my own money for lawyer fees, new windows for my car, and hospital bills. There are videos of me in court on YouTube winning the criminal trial (i.e. I was declared not guilty on all counts), but when I sued them for damages, I was ruled against by a federal judge, and it never even went to court.
But, no, according to Sam Gipp, I am a millionaire! That is why I live in a 1540 square foot house built in 1956 in a questionable neighborhood, share a vehicle with my wife, and buy all my clothes at Goodwill.
The sermon was pretty much like that the whole time - wild accusations with no proof given. Most of what he said would be clearly proven false just by sitting down and watching After the Tribulation. He claims that I told him that I didn't know Pastor Roland Rasmussen and have nothing to do with him. What in the world? Then why did we use him as the narrator in our After the Tribulation film? The truth is that Pastor Rasmussen won my parents to the Lord when they were children in Canoga Park, CA, in the early 1960s. However, in those days Pastor Rasmussen was pre-trib. He came out with his book debunking the pre-trib rapture in 1996 (when I was 15 years old), but I didn't hear about the book until years later when I met Roland Rasmussen for the first time in the year 2000, and I didn't read it until late 2006 when one of Pastor Rasmussen's church members began attending our church every Wednesday night because he was commuting to Phoenix each week. I still talk to Pastor Rasmussen on the phone every few months because he is extremely intelligent, and I enjoy discussing Bible prophecy with him. Even though we don't see eye to eye on many things, I have great respect for his scholarship and Bible knowledge and always learn something.
One thing that cracked me up was his story about calling Pastor Roger Jimenez. He claimed that Pastor Jimenez had to call me and report to me because I am his cult leader. The true story is that he called Brother Jimenez and said, "I am trying to get a hold of Pastor Anderson. Can you have him give me a call?" In fact, he let's this slip out in the clip below because after telling the lie about Jimenez having to report to me, he then says that he told Jimenez that he wanted to speak to me! Gipp also had the gall to say that I like his material on the King James Version. In his dreams! His material on the KJV is garbage, and I have never liked it. I rebuked his foolish teaching on the word "Easter" about 10 years ago and have always avoided him and all other Ruckmanite false teachers. I believe that the KJV is the word of God without error, but I think that people like Gipp do damage to the cause of KJV-onlyism because their arguments are so weak, people like James White (also a heretic) can easily dismantle them. Here is the video where Brother Jimenez rebukes Sam Gipp's lies:
A few more highlights from the evening: here is where Sam Gipp brags about the viewcount on his videos going into the stratosphere (83 viewers) after he attacked me:
Here is where Sam Gipp delivers his bombshell about the word "tribulation" being used 22 times in the New Testament, but only in 21 verses. Oh, no! He got me!
Here is where Sam Gipp lies about my chart showing the timeline of the book of Revelation:
Oh, and no meeting would be complete without the invitation:
