I stumbled across your website and felt obliged to mention that you are way off here.
I’m sure you get lots of these so Ill keep it brief.
So little of what you say is edifying and or helpful. You rightly point out some serious error but in the end, your mission is totally undermined by the fact you have vilified self-confessed, fallen human beings who are in fact saints by the blood of Jesus.
What will Jesus say about you guys on the day of judgement?
I even asked myself, do these guys really believe these things? Or are they just trying to make as many enemies as possible? I would even suggest Schizophrenia may be a possibility.
I don’t expect or want a reply from you, I couldn’t leave without saying goodbye and letting you know that I wont be coming back. I got my Bible, rich prayer life and a broken, justified and sanctified church family. It is tough at times yeah, but our role here on earth is not to point out where the darkness is (that happens all by itself), it is simply to seek first the Kingdom of God.

Basis of Faith
Merland Rise Church is committed to these truths of historic, biblical Christianity:
There is one God, who exists eternally in three distinct but equal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is unchangeable in his holiness, justice, wisdom and love. He is the almighty Creator; Saviour and Judge who sustains and governs all things according to his sovereign will for his own glory.
2. The Bible
God has revealed himself in the Bible, which consists of the Old and New Testaments alone. Every word was inspired by God through human authors, so that the Bible as originally given is in its entirety the Word of God, without error and fully reliable in fact and doctrine. The Bible alone speaks with final authority and is always sufficient for all matters of belief and practice.
3. The Human Race
All men and women, being created in the image of God, have inherent and equal dignity and worth. Their greatest purpose is to obey, worship and love God. As a result of the fall of our first parents, every aspect of human nature has been corrupted and all men and women are without spiritual life, guilty sinners and hostile to God. Every person is therefore under the just condemnation of God and needs to be born again, forgiven and reconciled to God in order to know and please him.
4. The Lord Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life in obedience to the Father. He taught with authority and all his words are true. On the cross he died in the place of sinners, bearing God’s punishment for their sin, redeeming them by his blood. He rose from the dead and in his resurrection body ascended into heaven where he is exalted as Lord of all. He intercedes for his people in the presence of the Father.
Salvation is entirely a work of God’s grace and cannot be earned or deserved. It has been accomplished by the Lord Jesus Christ and is offered to all in the gospel. God in his love forgives sinners whom he calls, granting them repentance and faith. All who believe in Christ are justified by faith alone, adopted into the family of God and receive eternal life.
6. The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit has been sent from heaven to glorify Christ and to apply his work of salvation. He convicts sinners, imparts spiritual life and gives a true understanding of the Scriptures. He indwells all believers, brings assurance of salvation and produces increasing likeness to Christ. He builds up the Church and empowers its members for worship, service and mission.
7. The Church
The universal Church is the body of which Christ is the head and to which all who are saved belong. It is made visible in local churches, which are congregations of believers who are committed to each other for the worship of God, the preaching of the Word, the administering of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper; for pastoral care and discipline, and for evangelism. The unity of the body of Christ is expressed within and between churches by mutual love, care and encouragement. True fellowship between churches exists only where they are faithful to the gospel.
8. Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper have been given to the churches by Christ as visible signs of the gospel. Baptism is a symbol of union with Christ and entry into his Church but does not impart spiritual life. The Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of Christ’s sacrifice offered once for all and involves no change in the bread and wine. All its blessings are received by faith.
9. The Future
The Lord Jesus Christ will return in glory. He will raise the dead and judge the world in righteousness. The wicked will be sent to eternal punishment and the righteous will be welcomed into a life of eternal joy in fellowship with God. God will make all things new and will be glorified forever.

Andrew, you write to us:
“So little of what you say is edifying and or helpful. You rightly point out some serious error but in the end, your mission is totally undermined by the fact you have vilified self-confessed, fallen human beings who are in fact saints by the blood of Jesus.”
Who are you to say who is of God against His evidence? The fact is, you’re wrong in your judgment and we’re right in ours. We’ve proven it with the evidence God has sent us to speak. You’ve proven nothing, except that you sit on the seat of God, judging like a pope without any witnesses besides your say-so.
You say we may be schizophrenic, blaspheming the One Who sends us, the same as the Jews did when Jesus appeared in the flesh:
“And many of them said, He has a demon and is insane. Why do you hear Him?”
(John 10:20 MKJV)
Did Jesus, Who is the Light, not point out the darkness bringing destruction to God’s people (Matthew 23, for example)? You’re a liar, Andrew, a son of Satan and destroyer by nature. Your church is full of devils and their doctrines. You are rich in yourselves, not in the Lord, and this you’ll know shortly, as He is our witness.

We talked to Billy on January 13th, An older man who was excited about our taking false teachers to task. I told him to spread the word – to share our writings on the net and wherever he can. I asked him if he’d like to receive our letters, to which he said, “yes.” This is the correspondence: From: Billy To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, January 08, 2016 5:38 PM I have really enjoyed your information. Is there anyway that you would permit me to help you? If so how? We all need to know how to expose the false teachers of our age so that we can trace the path that they used to led man astray?

From: Tobias To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, September 25, 2016 6:44 PM Subject: Dan Mohler and Todd White Hello, I recently discovered your webpage and started reading some of the articles and emails you published about Todd White and Dan Mohler. It seems as though your opinions come from true conviction. I had one question. have you ever met them in person? Maybe you state this somewhere, and I did not read that, if so I apologize. But I am wondering that. As a believer who loves Jesus, I think it's amazing really how you think about the two. You reference scripture a lot, which I appreciate. Too many teachers these days do not ever mention scripture. Isn't the bible clear though on how to identify "false teachers"? 1 John 4:1: "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:2 continues:"This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 4:3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world." I have by now watched a lot of teachings from Dan Mohler as well as Todd White. And one thing that always stood out to me was how [more than others] these two give glory to Jesus and God the father. Further, Dan Mohler is never takin...
From: Genevieve To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, April 17, 2016 5:38 AM Read your comments regarding John Ramirez. I had watch John on Sid Roth's Supernatural program. I purchased his book and I'm please with it. You comments has an implication of jealousy. Thats an hindering spirit. Have you appeared on any program that I and/or other believers in Jesus Christ can watch or view. Jealousy is very very bad. I am not going to cite an hundred scriptures just to say jealousy us bad and its a hindering spirit. I may be wrong, however, your comments indicate otherwise. God Bless You. From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Genevieve Sent: Wednesday, May 04, 2016 6:58 AM Subject: Pleased with the False/Displeased by the True Genevieve, you not only may be wrong, you are wrong. You suspect we’re jealous, but that’s only a suspicion from your imagination, not reality. We don’t need to appear on a TV program for us to reach you with the truth in Jesus Christ. That’s already happened here on our site, don’t you think? And are you rejecting Him? “I have come in My Father's Name, and you do not receive Me. If another shall come in his own name, him you will receive. How can you believe, you who receive honor from one another and do not seek the honor that comes from God only?” (John 5:43-44 MKJV) Paul and Victor www.ThePathofTruth.com
