Hi Ronald, 

Where are you from and what did you have in mind? Why do you want to help this ministry in particular? What have you found on our website? 

Please understand, these are friendly, not suspicious questions. Just want to know more about you and where you’re coming from. Tell us about your spiritual background – your journey and life experiences, including practical skills. 

Thank you – look forward to hearing back from you.

I asked the Lord Jesus to come into my life at the age of 18 and I am 64 now. I have always had a strong faith but could not reallly fit in to organized church. I just could not believe some doctrine like eternal hell. I went to bible college thinking God had called me into ministry but nothing happened after that. My work has been in the construction field but I feel I could be a help to a ministry in some practical way. I took an early retirement as I suffer from a depressive disorder. I don’t have a problem with this if I don’t try to work full time. But, I still have a strong desire to serve the Lord and after reading some of your lessons believe you have a good ministry.

Hi Ronald,

Have you red this? Good Riddance to Depression

We’re located in Helena, MT, those running the website, whereas Victor and some of the other believers are in Lethbridge, Alberta, where Harvest Haven (www.HarvestHaven.com), the organic farm and store, are located. 

To help us get to know each other better you could join us at the weekly Sabbath meetings, or at the Bible readings/meetings via telephone conference. Ronnie Tanner has upped your profile on the Forum to give you access to the Private section now, where you’ll find information and instructions on these meetings. Let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you for your reply. About the depressive disorder. When I was 3 years old I was hit by a car and the doctors said I would not live because of the severe head injury. I believe because of this injury, I have had many clinical depressions in my life. Now, I am not concerned much as I just don’t try to work a 40 hour week which seems to trigger the depression. Anyway, I have been enjoying reading the many teachings on your site and thank the Lord for them.

I wonder if there aren’t some simple physical things that can help you, Ronald, which I’m not suggesting in place of faith and prayer. It sounds like you’ve found a reasonable way to cope with your problem, but I’m sure there is more and better. Also check out God Heals Today, His Way and Mundane Matters of Importance.

Help, I'm Apostate!
From: Joseph To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, July 02, 2016 4:54 PM Subject: Apostate I Think I've been Cut Off I fell into to many snares and gave satan to much to work with. My family has been over ran and I lost track of what I was being called out of. I've been on prescription pain killers for over 10 years now for a back problem (Addicted) My main focus in life was to get on disabilty instead of pleasing God and I built up a false realty that my way of life was acceptable with God, then when I started to get off of the pain killers I realized the damage that I had done to my brain (Bipolar Disorder) and have been overwhelmed by dysfunctional horrible intrusive thoughts, Panic attacks, breathing problems and my sleeping patterns are off. I have a fearful realization that God had turned me over to reprobation. My wife is a unbeliever and I never fully broke away from my old life. My wife and I are separated now and none of my children are christians. I fear the Holy Spirit may have left me. How far will God go to keep you from falling away? I've prayed and tried to turn things around but to much damage has been done and I am not well. Would he turn someone over to Satan (Which I know he has done) for the destuction of the flesh 1 Co 5:5 (or because I've become a castaway) I'm hoping he would go to these extreems to keep me from being cut off. I know the Holy Spirit came into my life when I was 20 years old and I had a indescribable Joy at that time but since ...
Grace Giving: Rummaging in Trash for “Truth”
From: Bud To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, January 09, 2016 1:47 PM Subject: Re Hello, I read Russell Kelly's book. But I have always known that tithing is not a Christian doctrine for the simple fact that I can read. It is not money, but food from the land of Israel. It is impossible for anyone to tithe Biblically today. If they say they are, they are lying to the Spirit, except in reality they are probably just ignorant. I'm not talking about giving or the Webster dictionary version of the word tithe. I'm talking about the Biblical tithing. In Galatians Paul has doubts about those who want to be under the law. I think he is questioning their salvation. Bottom line is there is no such thing as a "biblical principle of tithing" as many deceivers claim. That was whipped up by Judiazers. And there are allot of those around! There is only the Mosaic Law ordinances of tithing. (Well that and some pagan customs like we see with Abraham paying 10% spoil of war.) Romans 7 demonstrates that we cannot be married to Christ if we are still married to the law. The law did not pass away but was fulfilled in Christ. Colossians 2:14. Now we are married to Christ. When it comes to giving and our Christian walk, you can never go wrong with Grace. I will not support a tithing church. Paul calls such doctrine another gospel that frustrates the Grace of God.  Peace and Grace, Bud From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Bud Sent: Tuesday, January 19, 2016 7:49 AM Subject: Re...
何謂故意犯罪?
那些從罪惡中被釋放的人並體驗過上帝的美好事物,藉著對基督的信仰,而背離祂,在這個罪惡的世界上選擇自己的生活而不是主,是那些領受真理的知識以後仍故意犯罪的人。
