A Global Christian "Academy of Scholars Anonymous "
A "Think-Tank" Addressing the Serious Christian Issues of our Times"
NewtonStein Academy is an informal "Think-Tank of Retired Christian Scholars" with a vast variation in background, walks of life and fields of scholarship, and religious training.
(1) WE DO NOT ALL AGREE ON ALL POSITIONS.
(2) WE DO AGREE, in our estimation, that we are the most DEDICATED, the most STUDIED, most AGGRESSIVELY CHRISTIAN and the MOST HONEST group, of Scholars on the FACE OF THE EARTH TODAY!
To be very forthright: We,
NewtonStein Academy of Scholars Anonymous
believe this Academy to be
"The Premier 'Think-Tank' of Serious Christian Scholars"
[To understand why all Scholars "Must Sign" to remain anonymous, see "ANONYMOUS" below].
From 50+ represented nations, we bring you the most "Unique-&-Unusual-Insight into God's Holy Scriptures, by Scholarship of Highest Intellect & Deepest Dedication - in all cases, by one who has spent an entire life - SEEKING GOD'S UNDERSTANDING & APPROVAL - as Paul commanded - BY VERY SERIOUS STUDY. . . BY WORKING LIKE A WORKMAN: Hard-&-Long, who NEEDETH NOT to be ashamed when standing before the Almighty God . . . with the Goal of understand God's message to humanity, by "Rightly dividing the Sacred Scriptures."
Nothing Like NewtonStein Academy Anywhere in the World!
We know of nothing like "NewtonStein Academy" anywhere in the world, or even in history, as the Internet & Computers allow us to research & communicate more than all previous generations ever dreamed.
Calculators allow some of us to work more Mathematical Equations in a day - than Einstein could in a year -writing everything 'Long-hand with pencil & paper!'
Internet allows us to research more first century documents in a month - than previous scholars were privileged to research in a Lifetime . . . and more than most of us were privileged to 'see in a decade' in the early years!
From many nations, universities and decades of study, we bring you the most awesome insight as follows:
> God's Holy Scriptures,
> First Century Writings, Leaders & Church Development
> Several Fields of Science, from
> > > Astro-Physics to
> > > Quantum Physics, to
> > > Nuclear Chemistry to
> > > Biology & Evolution v. Creation Studies
> > > Medical Research extensively
> True, bible-based Psychology,
> Every age of History & Archeology,
> All things Hebrew: Language & Culture
> All things Greek: Language & Culture
> Church History
> Even Health & Fitness
In fact, we at NewtonStein believe we have a "PREMIER SCHOLAR" - and in some cases, perhaps the MOST-STUDIED scholar - in some of the above stated fields of study!
We are in our "Twilight Years!" NO TIME to spare and NO REASON TO PARSE WORDS.
What you need to understand, . . . about most of what you will read here at NewtonStein:
[I] YOU WILL INITIALLY DISAGREE, and probably quite strongly. "WHY?"
[II] BECAUSE IT ALL COMES DOWN TO WORLD-VIEW!
You are in the earlier phases of a world not well-experienced! Sadly, our world experience is nearly worn out!!!
> > You have likely studied at a college & seminary or two,
> > > We have studied at over a dozen institutions of higher learning EACH, on several continents, and some of us at over 25 State-&-Christian Universities, Bible Schools, & Accredited Colleges.
> > You have likely studied at institutions giving you a particular doctrinal point of view,
> > > We ALL have studied at separate institutions presenting the Calvinistic, Arminian, Baptistic, Catholic, and Inter-denominational points of view.
> > You have likely have an hundred and some college semester credits,
> > > We have over 300 on average, and up to 1000+!
> > You have likely traveled to a few nations to do mission work
> > > We have been to 40 or more nations each!
> > You have likely attended a couple of dozen Specialty Seminars,
> > > We have all been to hundreds of them in many lands.
Much more could be said - and we'd like to see more of our credentials in print! (HA!) but as stated: our time is fleeting, and hopefully . . . you get the point!
*** Here is what we at NewtonStein want you to realize MOST OF ALL: ALMOST TO THE MAN, we agree . . .
That we reached our most important Truth & Understanding AFTER 30 full years of mature study!
Thus you must realize, that whatever it is you believe in your twenties, thirties, forties and finally . . . somewhere in the fifties it all begins to come together.
When you hear any Scholar "so-called" talk about never having Changed his mind . . . you know the Scholar is either lying, or QUITE STUDYING! (We recommend neither!)
Usually what happens, is that most educated people by far . . . write way too soon, thinking that they know something and not realizing at all that they are just parroting someone else's tired ideas that never were any good.
However, if one has a Graduate Degree from an Ivy League School, they can find a publisher who will take them based on credentials - not the work.
Once the first book is published, they sell some books, do some seminars, gain some notoriety and "build a reputation" for a particular position and/or philosophy, . . . then they are too embarrassed to admit later how wrong an stupid they were in their first book . . .
. . . so they waste the rest of their life . . . trying to "prove they were not wrong" . . . digging, searching for some kind of twisted, manipulated evidence to prove their original thesis, rather than just admitting their first book was ridiculous, laughing about it and moving on to some real knowledge.
A perfect example is "Dr. Spock". He wrote a "best-selling" famous book on raising kids without discipline by using "reverse psychology". He had raised no children, didn't even have a baby, and wasn't even married.
Of course he was attacked on all sides by those who knew better, but he stuck by his theory, and spent 30 years teisting research trying to "prove American chuldren were not getting worse!
He finally got married, had a son, and raised him with "reverse psychology instead of Discipline. The son turned out to be a real lunny tune, as you can imagine . . . but Dr. Spoke stuck to his guns.
Finally, after a decade of adult heartache, the son committed suicide. Dr. Spock hid in shame and blame for years, did a mountain of research and completely reversed his theory - and wrote a book refuting everything his first-&-famous book said advocated.
Sadly, however, Americans no longer knew how to raise their children with a paddle and discipline and didn't want to hear they they were a mess because their parents had raised them to be lunny-tunes.
So it didn't sell and a brilliant young man with a great education waste his whole career . . . because he published too soon, and pride disallowed him from admitting error and stupidity.
The point is, there is hardly a chance of knowing anything comprehensively and deeply before age 50 at best . . . and age 60 is more realistic. Just keep studying, seeking truth, and don;t jump the gun.
Why all Scholars "Must Sign" to Remain Anonymous,
All scholars of NewtonStein Academy, contributing in writing, have CHOSEN to remain anonymous for the following reasons:
 Surely you know that a College Professor of an Institution with a "Long-Held-&-Proudly-Defended-Position" CANNOT publicly go against that position - without major repercussion, often ending friendships & relationships of a lifetime, even ending employment.
 Surely you know that Leaders & Officers of Denominations with "Long-Held-&-Proudly-Defended-Position" CANNOT publicly go against such position - without major repercussion, often ending friendships & relationships of a lifetime, even ending employment.
 Surely you know that noted scholars who have PUBLISHED a particular position, taught on television & radio, in universities and seminars world-wide, creates all manner of chaos by RESCINDING THE PUBLISHED POSITION & ESPOUSING THE OPPOSITE - causing major repercussion from publishers, media sponsors, denominational peers, etc., often ending friendships & relationships of a lifetime, even ending employment.
 Amazingly, today and over the centuries, some of the greatest scholars advocating for, or even leading a university department of study for a particular position - AFTER 10, 20, or 30 years of DEEPLY COMPREHENSIVE STUDY realizes that position simply is not correct! even though their is as follows:
> > [a] much evidence that "seems to have" pointed that way, and
> > [b] could be skewed jjust a little to MAKE IT SEEM as if it truly supports that view
Jacob Arminius was one such scholar. Martin Luther another, and the Apostle Paul another.
 Surely you know that anonymity makes for a clearer expression of honesty from "voting-by-secret-ballot" to "whistle-blowers-of-major-companies" to "witnesses against organized crime".
For example, some minister's wives perhaps would not want you to know they had an abortion when very young; or ministers that they once had stolen money from Church offerings in a dire emergency etc.: but would perhaps expires their thoughts anonymously for the benefit of younger folk.
 Surely you know that anonymity removes pride, position, power, pecking-order, the temptation to capitalize, and many possibly-negative factors from the table, such as irrational attacks and even involvement of innocent family members and reflect on their employment!
This is why the translators of the New American Standard version required all translator remain anonymous.
 HOWEVER! We want you to now that we, the scholars of NewtonsStein Academy, have ALL suffered some of these things, and simply to allow ourselves at this stage of life: "A PURE PURSUIT OF TRUTH" have decided anonymity is the best course.
We at NewtonStein, FOR THE SAKE OF TRUTH, have suffered
For speaking, writing, or even QUESTIONING the status quo - in SEARCH OF ABSOLUTE TRUTH, we at NewtonStein have suffered the following:
> lost jobs,
> lost family & friends of a lifetime
> > lost positions we had worked decades hard to earn, of decent honor & recognition.
> > lost sponsors and promoters for seminars, thus major sources of income
> > > lost health insurance later in life
> > > lost retirement benefits close to the time of USING THEM!
> > > > we have had in-laws and relatives never speak again (Once-in-a-while-there-was-a-alight-blessing-here! HA!)
> > > > one of our leading scholars, had parents, siblings & whole family ask him to step down from their Church leadership - where his father had pastored for 35+ years - and have never contacted him again! [This was over Eternal Security! - such doctrine could not even be discussed - scholar learned this reason for 'rejection & shunning' from a third-party Church member AFTER the fact!]
> > > > > Obviously these things affect marriages, children & grandchildren, and many factors in emotional well-being. Thus our claim to being "Serious Scholars!"
> > > > > At NewtonStein, ALL of us have suffered some, some of us have suffered ALL, and most of us have grieved to the point of mortal despair - at times. As the Good Book says: "Much learning doth make thee mad!" it could be, my brethren, it could be!
Jesus said to "REJOICE and be exceeding glad when persecuted, for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you!
So on we Live, . . . we Study, . . .we Seek-&-Speak - for TRUTH.
Jesus is the TRUTH, what what did He mean by what He actually said?
