The Spirit and Mindset of Those Posting Shaparenko’s Materials

Paul wrote to Stephen, who posted a segment of Shaparenko’s material:

Hi Stephen,

In the article you copied and posted on this forum it mentions Victor Hafichuk as follows:

“Others, like Victor Hafichuk, are very coy, not wanting people to know exactly ‘where they are coming from’ and probably happy for all the welter of opinions and individuals involved…for it allows them to hide and be all over the map at the same time.”

There is no coyness. The author of the article simply does not understand what we preach, so he has mistakenly associated us with others based on hearing a few words that sounded similar. We are not associated with, nor do we follow, Eby and the others mentioned in the article. We have nothing to do with them. In fact, we take issue with their spirit as manifest in their followers in a special section on our site:


To hear the “rest of the story,” here is our correspondence with the man whose article you cite:

You should be familiar with what those you criticize are actually saying, otherwise you may be found to be opposing the Truth along with those you follow. The bottom line, Stephen, is you cannot live off of another’s oil, much less his poison. You need to know the Truth for yourself.

Stephen’s reply:

Let me tell you something. I have over 40 years of “oil” and can read and discern anyone’s writings and their doctrines for reference. Anyone with a solid, comprehensive, and correct rendering of the scriptures can do this. I know how to pick the worms out of the apple. So what is your point? What questions do you have for me?


Paul’s reply:

Stephen, I hear you testifying of yourself, a solitary witness that is not backed by another. Your fruits certainly do not corroborate your claims to discernment. If you stand behind this posting regardless of the facts, you not only do not recognize worms, but you have consumed a whole pile of them like a bowl of spaghetti.

Stephen’s reply:

I really do not care what you think and you can cease sending e-mails unless you have something worth while to talk about. Otherwise I will not respond.

Paul’s reply:

I have already given you much that is worthwhile. It is your deficient powers of discernment that prevent you from knowing or finding out.

“Jesus said to them, If you were blind, you would have no sin. But now you say, We see. Therefore your sin remains” (John 9:41 MKJV).

Stephen’s reply:

You failed the test. No more PMs. If you do I will report you.
