Fraud of VPP Publishing
by Philip Tang,
Imitation may be the sincerest
form of flattery in the world of branded goods,
the movie-making world and the arts, but where
true religion is concerned, it is an abomination
to the true God, the "I AM THAT I AM",
the true jealous God, who said, "ˇI am
God, and there is none else; I am God, and there
is none like me."
False religions, led by Satan,
imitate what God has done through His only begotten
Son, Jesus Christ. Satan is practiced in deceitful
arts. For ages Satan has been practicing the art
of delusion, and with him it is perfect. Christians
are not to assume what appears to be pious is
pious. We should not believe a "doctrine" merely
because it appears to come from a pious person,
or it sounds 'biblical'. Rather, we ought to be
cautious and realize that Satan and his ministers
are masters of the art of deception.
The verbal plenary preservation
(VPP) heresy has long been touted by the Far Eastern
Bible College (FEBC) as a Christian 'doctrine'.
Recently they published a book,
"Verbal Plenary Preservation
of the Bible, A Course on the Doctrine of Verbal
Plenary Preservation (Paperback), Faculty of FEBC
College (Author) "
It was sold through the internet
under the publication "the old path publications".
Now, those of us who have read
works by the puritans and great reformed Christian
authors would be familiar with the publisher,
"old path publications". One non-VPPist was rather
surprised that this reputable publisher would
endorse a book on the VPP "doctrine". He wrote
to the publisher to inquire about the VPP book.
Mr. Springer the president and
founder of the reputable publisher clarified the

Dear Mr. Tang,
I was completely unaware of this publication.
As you know, I do not agree with the radical
defense of the KJV, as though it is identical
with the autographa.
Have you notified Mr. Springer of Old Paths of

Dear Mr. Tang,
Greetings to you Philip. These greetings come
in the name of Him Who makes us eternally debtors
At the outset, let me say that you have mistaken
us for someone else. We are "Old Paths Publications"
however, the publisher of the book to which you
refer is "The Old Paths Publications"
an entirely different organization of which we
have no affiliation nor association whatsoever.
In fact, prior to today, I was totally unaware
of the existence of their name, website, or book...
Name of genuine publisher of historic reformed
Old Paths Publications
Name of impostor (VPP) publisher of questionable
The Old Paths Publications
