A Message of Gratitude

Hello Victor and Paul

My name is Emanuel, I am a 24 year old living in Florida. I am writing to you both or if either one of you does not receive this email, any administrator, to personally thank you for posting this website. 

I came across your site because I turn 24 soon and it literally woke in my concious that yes I am going to die one day, and even though i grew up in traditional christianity, their teachings about the nature of God, His judgement, hell, etc, just made me so depressed and all it did was make me wish I was never born. To make matters worse was that I saw videos from three people on YouTube claiming to be true, “narrow path” followers (one of them is on your list of false teachers) and what they preached about humanity and our existence just sucked all the hope from my being. I still to this day wake up in the morning with terrible anxiety running through my body because my mind still has their words imprinted in it. 

I admit that even though your messages and teachings give me tremendous hope and joy, there still is that present thought of “maybe this is too good to be true?” I do not write that out of disrespect, I wrote that just to pour out my heart. I believe you both are true prophets from the Lord because of the hope that your messages, teachings, and expositions give me. You both have presented me the real wise, just, all-knowing Jesus Christ instead of the tyrant Lord the others have.

Why would the Lord allow a person to come into existence knowing they would eventually burn for eternity? Your messages from the Lord are true and very awakening to my character but I see that behind God’s judgement, wrath, and fire is his love and that is what it’s all about. Thank you both again and thank you for reading my message.

“Come to Me, all those laboring and being burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, because I am meek and lowly in heart, “and you will find rest to your souls.” Jer. 6:16 For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30 LITV).

I see that behind God’s judgement, wrath, and fire is his love and that is what it’s all about.

Amen, Emanuel. God has blessed you in receiving our testimony as from Him. Don’t doubt what you see and know to be true, but believe Him and you will be made free. 

The walk with God won’t be easy, but being judged (corrected) by Him for your salvation is far, far better than walking in darkness and not knowing what you’re stumbling over. What comparison can there be between life and death, or day and night? 

Keep reading on our site, and keep in touch. God bless you as you seek after the True God, Who truly is already blessing you as He is working in your life and showing you the Way, which Way He Is.

Paul and Victor

Hello Path of Truth staff
To Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk

Hello my name is Emanuel. I wrote to this site a few weeks back expressing my graditude for the truly Good News that was expressed on the site about Jesus Christ. 

I write to you all today with a burden on my heart that has been robbing me my peace of mind and I wish to express it with you all. Before I came across this site after I watched videos from Youtube “Narrow path” followers and all their message did was suck all hope from my being. Jesus became my enemy after hearing those men because I just did not undetstand how can God be so dependent on what I did for eternal salvation when I’m just a nobody. 

Your site and the Good News of the Gospel openned my eyes and has lead me to see Jesus Christ as sovereign and that He does all things well and that He is in complete control. I wrote one of those gentlemen basically criticizing him for making Satan and Hell the Omega when scripture clearly teaches the Jesus is the Omega. I was called the hands of Satan in return. 

To be honest with you all, I took months of frustration out on the youtube gentleman because of the gloom hopeless message that he emphatically preaches as truth. His message doesn’t make sense. He makes God to be so small. Now that I have the sense that Jesus is in complete control. I just seek a reply of counsel from Victor or Paul in response. Thank you for your time and have a great day.

Hi Emanuel,

Are you saying you feel bad after letting the fellow on YouTube “have it” for the lies and deception he preaches in the Name of Christ? There’s nothing necessarily wrong with that, but why don’t you send us the link to the video with your comments so we can more specifically respond and help you?

Hello Paul. 

Thank you for your reply to my message. It is greatly appreciated. 

Well I did not necessarily feel bad more frightened to be honest. Herod was smote dead for blaspheming in Acts. I did feel the need to express to the gentleman that I didn’t ask to be born. I just was and I cant go back now. I told him that if I was given the choice of coming here and basically playing eternal “Russian roulette”, because that is what he puts life to be, I would never have. How can “Good news” be so terrible. 

Paul, I wrote my comments on his facebook page and I was deleted. I do admit to you that I might have been the agressor in the situation and that is how I might sound in the comments. The gentleman’s name is Robert Lyte and it really is not hard to miss him. 

Thank you again for your reply Paul. I’m grateful for the truth of the Gospel because I’m 23 turning 24 in May of this year and I really have no idea what life is about anyways. My father died of colon cancer when I was 6 years of age and it’s soothing to know that God has everything in control on his behalf as well. I really don’t know if I’m doing anything right though. I thank you for your help.

Hi Emanuel, 

You didn’t blaspheme the Holy Spirit by expressing yourself as you did. We know the type of religious zealot you were trying to reason with, and yes, that can be frustrating. If Robert deleted your remarks because you basically asked him how the self-righteous gospel of accepting Jesus Christ could be the Good News, then the problem is his. 

Keep reading at our site and feel free to share appropriate links from our page with others such as Robert. If you need help, just ask us. 

The main thing is for you to know the truth yourself, and not to let others hinder you from pursuing the truth, the Lord Jesus Christ. He is what it’s all about – fellowshipping with Him by walking in the light with Him. That’s how He gives us the abundant life He promised, and the Lord is always good for His promises. 

Some writings to help you know what’s right: 

How One Is Saved
What Is Faith? 
What Is Confession?

You’re welcome to join us at our Sabbath meetings (text chat room on our site, every Saturday at 12:00 Mountain time), and to receive our letters (answering mail at The Path of Truth). Let us know on both counts if you’re interested and we’ll send you the details.

Hi Emanuel,

We never heard back from you – maybe you didn’t receive the email below. We just heard from the sister of Robert Lyte, and I checked our files to see where I heard his name before.

We’d like to know how you’re doing. What’s been happening there?
