In 2012, Voice of God Recordings published a newsletter entitled, "Because He Said So" in an attempt to offer a defense against those who have discovered William Branham's twisting of scripture, failed prophecy, fictional life stories, and other fundamental issues with the material they publish around the world. It appears that this newsletter has been removed from the website after the repercussions of this publication -- cult followers began to notice that the newsletter was not so much of a defense as it was a blatant attack on the Holy Bible.
