First the nonsense; now the lawsuit... sigh

Nonsense like the Verbal Plenary Preservation (VPP) is not only anti-intellect, it is anti-Christ. Simply put, VPP means 'the belief that the infallible and inerrant words of Scripture are found in the Traditional/Byzantine/Majority manuscripts and fully represented in the Printed and Received Text (Textus Receptus) that underlie the Reformation Bibles best represented by the King James Version', according to Edmond Chua from Christian Post (Singapore).

Because of this nonsense, a local church has launched a lawsuit against the bible college, which holds this nonsense, located within the church premise.

VPP is laughable; the lawsuit is mournful.

I wonder how the Singapore civil court will deal with this lawsuit. Is religius matters under the preview of the civil common law in Singapore?

Hi Alex,

Really, I have no idea... I think as long as it does not affect religious/ethnic harmony, the Singaporean gov is ok. But if it does, then they will take action.

On this particular case, it's more on tenant contract between the two institution, rather than doctrinal differences (though it is the cause of the dispute), so i think the gov will look into it.
