Eli James - 2006-05-28 - The second letter.

Reading this letter, it must be noted that Ralph is my old friend Ralph Daigle, through whom Eli James first received my address and was able to contact me in April of 2006. Ralph was in prison with me at Elkton Ohio, where he had finished a seven-year sentence for income tax evasion. He was a long-time Identity Christian, and a fellow pastor in Michigan with James Wickstrom and Gary Blackwell before Wickstrom’s affair with Kathy Kallstrom caused the group to fracture. I think that was in 2004 or 2005. After that Ralph and Blackwell went off into Paul-bashing, which has caused me to shy away from him. It was also Ralph Daigle who first introduced me to Clifton Emahiser, and also to Frank Smith of the Church of Christ in Israel, who ordained me in December of 2000. So far as I know, Ralph is still alive and I wish him well, but in my recollection, I have not spoken to him since before I split with Eli James in 2011....

Eli James - 2006-04-21 - The first letter.

This is the first letter I received from Eli James, while I was in prison. The letter has been scanned and appears with the original envelope below. It was postmarked April 21st, 2006 and sent from Chicago. Eli, whose real name I later found out was Jospeh November, often tells people that I went looking for him after I got out of prison. These letters, which I only had the chance to retrieve from storage recently, prove that he is once again lying.

Blood Moons

From an email with the subject line "4 blood moons" received Tuesday, July 28th:

I've have been hearing a lot about these 4 blood moons leading to the beginning of the end time or birth/second advent of the messiah both from Christians and new ager pagans what is your option on the matter and what do the primary sources have to say regarding this theory

Thank you

Origins of the Doric Greek word Karneia

Dear Mr Finck,

I have read your essay Classical Records of the Dorian & Danaan Israelite-Greeks. I happened to read a book of Greek history on the subject of Greek festivals in Ancient Sparta. One was called Karneia (Karnia) it is said that it came from the word Karno which meant in the Doric dialect ram. I've checked the word carno (karno) and found one city in Wales and one city in the Biblical area that is called Carnaim and which is called Carno by Ptolemy and Strabo. It is probably related to Genesis 14:5 to a city called Ashteroth Karnaim.

I would appreciate your take on this.

Thanks in advance,
Petros S.

Weiland Letter 2005

WILLIAM FINCK VERSUS
TED R. WEILAND

By: William Finck

The following is a reproduction of a hand written letter I sent to Ted R. Weiland, P.O. Box 248, Scottsbluff, Nebraska, 69363, dated 19th August 2005 in support of Tony Gonyer whose address will not be cited here. Tony had taken exception to some of Weiland’s audio recordings, where Weiland insists upon sharing Yahweh’s promises to Israel with Yahweh’s enemies. It is now mid-November, and Weiland has not yet responded to my letter:
