How does Amazing Discoveries™ support itself?

For over 15 years, Amazing Discoveries was primarily supported by the directors' own funds, with sales of DVDs helping to keep the ministry going. Amazing Discoveries is now supported through the donations of supporters who believe in our mission and work, and have seen value in the message and want to help us share it with the world. Sales of our DVDs form a very small part of our ministry, and help to cover part of the administrative costs so that we can use more donation dollars towards evangelistic efforts. When you purchase DVDs from Amazing Discoveries, you are helping to support the cost of running the ministry.

Because we believe that Jesus is coming soon and because we desire the message of our DVDs to reach as many as possible, the Amazing Discoveries Board made the mission-minded decision, at the end of 2011, to lift the copyright ban on four of Walter Veith's series: Total Onslaught, Rekindling the Reformation, Life At Its Best, and Genesis Conflict (for a complete list, click here), allowing those particular DVDs to be copied & distributed freely without profit.

Copies may only be made from DVDs purchased directly from Amazing Discoveries and must be made of the complete presentation with nothing added or removed. Any sale of any copies made is strictly forbidden.

Does Walter Veith get any benefit from Amazing Discoveries™?

Walter Veith receives a small royalty for sale of the DVDs, and uses this remuneration to cover additional research costs and other ministry expenses incurred while traveling to Amazing Discoveries. Other than that, he receives no profit from the ministry. Walter Veith is an employee of the South African conference, working as a pastor and evangelist in the African Division.

What is Walter Veith's relationship with the Biblical Research Institute?

In the past, there has been some misunderstanding regarding the relationship between the Biblical Research Institute (BRI) and Walter Veith. Walter and Amazing Discoveries have been accused by Church leaders of not responding on their view on the issues of Bible translations.

The following documents are the dialogue between Walter Veith and the BRI. To date, the BRI has not replied to Walter Veith's last response. The issue still stands.

You will note that the BRI has provided no clarity on the two questions raised by Professor Veith: the issue of Ellen G. White used for exegesis, and the identity of the man of sin. We hope that as the full story is made available to our readers and supporters, previous misunderstandings about Walter Veith's interactions with the BRI will be clarified.
