When ‘Dr.’ Jeffrey Khoo became the Academic Dean of the FEBC and, subsequently its Principal (when Rev.
Timothy Tow passed away) the spiritual rot that started a few years earlier began to get worse.
‘Dr.’ Prabhdas Koshy, one of its lecturers, denied, against
all historical evidences and facts, that the Apostles used and quoted from the Septuagint (Did Jesus And The Apostles Rely On The Corrupt Septuagint? http://www.febc.edu.sg/VPP5.htm )
Jeffrey Khoo claimed that the KJV translators restored the lost autographs (Originals) through their translation
of the Bible into English. The KJV translators never made such a claim. They were, after all, translators and, not prophets
restoring the lost autographs.
‘Dr.’ Quek Suan Yew, one of FEBC’s lecturers, wrote one of the most startling statement, “Without the doctrine of VPP there is no BIBLE...” (NO VPP, NO KJV! NO CUV!,Elder's page of Calvary Pandan Weekly of 2nd Sept 2007).
Now, according to FEBC,
VPP is inextricably linked to the KJV bible. Since the KJV came into being in 1611, it follows therefore, that according to
‘Dr.’ Quek, there was no Bible until 1611! However, this contradicts
what the Bible says about the Word (John 1:1, Proverbs 8:22).
Paul Ferguson, a new
addition to the FEBC, found a comrade-in-arms in Islamist apologist Ahmad Deedat. Ferguson, a Christian Taliban, uses Deedat
to attack the Christian Bible (The Burning Bush, Jan 2009). This is not surprising as VPP’s understanding of revelation is identical
to Islam’s and the Mormons. The Islamists believe that their Original scripture is inscribed in Arabic on a tablet
in heaven; they were then revealed to Muhammad by an angel:
is a record of the exact words revealed by Allah through the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad. It was memorised by Muhammad
and then dictated to his Companions, and written down by scribes, who crosschecked it during his lifetime. Not one word of
its 114 chapters, suras, has been changed over the centuries, so that the Qu’ran is in every detail the unique and miraculous
text which was revealed to Muhammad fourteen centuries ago.”
‘Drs.’ Khoo, Koshy, Quek and Ferguson subscribe to this theory of revelation, the only difference
from the Islamist’s being that God revealed to the KJV translators what the autographic texts were.
It logically follows that they categorically reject any form
of textual criticism since the Hebrew and Greek underlying the KJV Bible is revealed directly from God to the KJV translators!
claim that unless Christians have the complete autographical texts in their hands, Christians cannot say they have the
Word of God.
Ferguson’s fluffy articles employ sleight-of-hand reasoning to attack the Christian Bible. For instance,
he quotes from anti-Christian Bart Ehrman, and concludes:
“such a statement shows the depth of rationalistic and unbiblical
thought that is now prevalent in modern fundamentalism”.
Dr. Ehrman is not at all a Christian but an atheist, so how can Ferguson use an atheist to represent modern
The BBC published a report about the University of Wales having links to a bible college in the USA giving
out illegal degrees.
The University of Wales
is a "laughing stock" for having awarded degrees at a controversial bible college in the USA, an American education expert
Trinity College of the Bible in Newburgh, Indiana, is not officially
accredited, which means many states consider its degrees to be illegal.
Dr John Bear said the university's links with the
college, which offers mainly distance education courses of a religious nature, was damaging.
The university has now cut the ties.
Jeffrey Khoo, current principal of the FEBC, earned a ‘illegal’ degree from the Trinity (College of the Bible) Theological Seminary.
The following link shows the cover page of Jeffrey Khoo’s dissertation submitted
to the Trinity (College of the Bible) Theological Seminary in Newburgh, Indiana, for the PhD degree.
Nature of FEBC’s
Under Khoo, the FEBC has lost its status
as a Reformed bible seminary.
Khoo, together with Quek, Koshy (who earned their Th.D from FEBC) and Ferguson (who is doing his
Th. D in FEBC) have taken FEBC down the road of the KJV Onlyism cult of D.A. Waite. In
their tenet of VPP number 6, Waite has been given miraculous power to know what the autographical texts are. Essentially, they hold similar position as the Ruckmanites, the only difference is that the Ruckmanites
are more honest about their position, whereas the VPPists are dodgy, speaking half-truths, misquoting and misrepresenting.
