Death In The Pot!

Timothy Tow

So they poured out for the men to eat. And it came to pass, as they were eating of the pottage, that they cried out, and said, O thou man of God, there is death in the pot. And they could not eat thereof. But he said, Then bring meal. And he cast it into the pot; and he said, Pour out for the people, that they may eat. And there was no harm in the pot (2 Kgs 4:40–41).

For 300 years the King James Bible (Authorised Version) reigned supreme until two Cambridge Greek scholars, Westcott and Hort, arose to challenge it in 1870. As a result of their machinations, they got it revised in 1881. So a new version, the Revised Version was produced, which changed ten thousand of the sacred text. (But the Revised Version, while it enjoyed a good sale at first, has for long died a diseased death.) Nevertheless, Westcott and Hort enjoyed the full confidence of the Church and their word was law. They took away the account of Jesus pardoning the woman taken in adultery (John 7:53–8:11) as no part of John’s Gospel but a later interpolation (insertion by another hand). They cut away the last 12 verses of Mark and the Johannine Comma, where the Trinity is taught (1 John 5:7,8). These are three glaring examples.

When I was a student in Faith Seminary, 1948, we were taught to accept everything Westcott and Hort had taught. When Dr D A Waite, ThD, PhD was in Dallas Seminary, 1948, he also was taught to receive everything that Westcott and Hort had given. But truth will out! God raised up a theological student, Edward F Hills (1912–81), a classmate of Dr Carl McIntire at Westminster Seminary, to research into Westcott and Hort. Edward F Hills, BTh, ThM, and ThD (Harvard Divinity School), having studied for over 15 years, raised the alarm, “Death in the pot.” The teachings of Westcott and Hort is poison to our souls!

With this alarm raised, other eminent theologians who are on the Lord’s side has joined his ranks, one by one, namely Dr Otis Fuller, Dr D A Waite, David W Cloud, G A Riplinger (author of New Age Bible Versions), Dr S H Tow and now the whole faculty of Far Eastern Bible College, not forgetting the venerable Trinitarian Bible Society of Great Britain.

Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully (Ps 24:3,4).

Hitherto, we have been hoodwinked by a conspiracy of silence on the evil character of Westcott and Hort, these two angels of light in textual criticism, until the recent exposure of their true colours. The records of the sons of Westcott and Hort, above all others, testify to their shame.

Westcott was founder of the Hermes Club in Cambridge, a Club that was reputed to be a homosexual club. Three years later, together with Hort and others, he branched into the Ghost Club, which scoffers called the Bogey Club. Bogey means devil. They delved into necromancy, which is communicating with the dead. This is an abomination to the Lord (Deut 18:11). Both Westcott and Hort were secret worshippers of Mary. They were friends of Darwin, Freud (called a Fraud in The Straits Times) and of Carl Jung, all enemies of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. They denied the infallibility and inerrancy of Scripture, the Virgin Birth of Christ, His blood atonement and resurrection. The Creation and Temptation that led to the Fall they derisively declared to be myths.

With impure hearts of rebellion against God and unclean, unconverted hands, how dared they touch the sacred Text of Holy Scripture? The ten thousand alterations and deletions they had made on the basis of Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus versus the thousands of the Majority Text resulted in the scissoring of the equivalent of First and Second Peter. In so doing, they had cut themselves from the Lord who bought them (2 Pet 2:1). Those who follow Westcott and Hort in taking away Scripture beware, “God shall take away his part out of the book of life...” (Rev 22:19). What more can we say of the hundred “perversions” that are based on Westcott and Hort? They are already corrupted at the source.

As to judging between KJB and the one hundred “perversions,” the unanimous testimony of believers throughout Church history, by the anointing of the Holy Spirit, suffices. Says the Apostle John,

But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things ... But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him” (1 John 2:20, 27).

Let us take, for example, John 3:16, the most repeated verse in the Bible. The KJB renders monogenes as only begotten, but the NIV as one and only, clipping out the begotten. The doctrine of eternal generation of the Son, held time immemorial by the universal Church, is forever struck out by the NIV. By the anointing of the Holy Spirit you can judge between the KJB and NIV. You have the answer.

Although there is death in the pot, Elisha says, “Then bring meal.” And he cast it into the pot, and he said, “Pour out for the people that they may eat ... And there was no harm in the pot.” God is powerful over all evil. God gives Elisha the power to neutralise the poison in the pot. God has now raised an international witness for His Truth. The King James Bible is the most accurate, devout English translation of the Bible and is now being restored against the 100 “perversions” of the English Bible—through fundamental scholars whom God has raised, men of integrity and men who love the Lord.

Today is a day of Victory for the Truth. My brother—Dr S H Tow— told me he had spent two years in research before he produced this 152-page book Beyond Versions to expose what is concealed in deceptive darkness. Please read it carefully and if you have been using the NIV or RSV, etc, cease taking their poison and be delivered from death in the pot. Use the KJB and rejoice in the Truth.
