Truth shall spring out of earth;
and righteousness shall look
down from heaven. Psalm 85:11

 Verbal Plenary
 Preservation - Perfect
 KJV-Onlyism is a false
 witness that sows
 discord among brethren
 (Prov 6:19)

 The Perfect KJV (KJV-Onlyism, KJV Onlyism, or KJVO) heresy is an abandonment of the Historic Reformed Faith and the Westminster Confession of Faith and comes in two forms: –

·         Ruckmanism, which holds to an inspired 1611 translation (“double inspiration”) resulting in a perfect English Bible.  Where there is a discrepancy between the English and its underlying Hebrew Masoretic or Greek TR texts, the English is to be taken as more correct!?

·         Verbal Plenary Preservation, also known as KJV-VPP or VPP-KJV, which holds to an inspired perfect textual criticism or recognition in 1611 which restored the Hebrew and Greek text of the KJV to be jot and tittle identical to the Divine Original Autographs!?

Ruckmanism and KJV-VPP are estranged twin sons of Benjamin Wilkinson, a leading Seventh Day Adventist who wrote “Our AV Vindicated” in 1930.  Wherever it has gone, in whatever circles, Perfect KJV Onlyism has wrecked havoc and caused discord among brethren.

Far Eastern Bible College (FEBC) has sadly not only adopted, but now champions this false Charismatic post-canonical inspiration doctrine.  FEBC cannot prove KJV-VPP – they cannot even convincingly and consistently identify the Hebrew-Greek underlying texts – but they call all who do not hold their views, “Neo-Fundamentalists”, “Neo-Evangelicals” or lacking in saving faith.  In this website, the KJV-VPP heresy is exposed and refuted with clear evidential facts and sound biblical exegesis!  It is our humble, earnest prayer that the Lord would be pleased to deliver His people from this divisive “doctrine”, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen.





Fraud of VPP Publishing

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 situationˇ­

To Professor Engelsma.
Dear Sir,

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ.

The Old Paths Publication for which you are one of the members of the Board of Advisors is a great help to those of us who like to read works of puritans and godly Christians of the Reformed Faith.

Recently the Old Paths published a book, “Verbal Plenary Preservation of the Bible, A Course on the Doctrine of Verbal Plenary Preservation (Paperback), Faculty of FEBC College (Author)” ISBN-10: 0981798543”

Verbal Plenary Preservation (VPP) is a new teaching that is vigorously promoted by the Far Eastern Bible College. Many churches that were once linked to the FEBC have since distanced themselves from her….

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 these things?

May I have your permission to forward your warning to him?

Cordially in Christ,
Prof. Engelsma

Dear Mr. Tang,

Greetings to you Philip. These greetings come in the name of Him Who makes us eternally debtors of gratitude.

At the outset, let me say that you have mistaken us for someone else. We are "Old Paths Publications" at, however, the publisher of the book to which you refer is "The Old Paths Publications" at, 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 Christianity:

Old Paths Publications

Name of impostor (VPP) publisher of questionable ‘Christianity’:
