Focusing on Following the Lord

Dear Paul & Victor,

I have stumbled across your website and started reading your writings.  I have been one of the “brain washed” christians for years and have stopped going to church because I believe that the “church” is preaching Mammon louder that Jesus Christ Cruxified. 

I accept your teachings and your scripture references and what you are stating makes sense. I always felt like I am missing a chuck of God somewhere, an emptiness, and though the Bible says “I am made whole”.

I also lived in spiritual fear since my “born-again” confession – I have never been assured of my salvation – hell posed a tremendous threat to me, and I found myself in constant torment regarding death and having to “burn in Hell” forever and ever!  I had no peace!  I am unable to not think of death and the unknown!

I am tormented day and night over this.  How can a loving God tell me that He will save my soul but if I slip up somewhere I will land in Hell and burn forever? And even if I try my hardest to not offend Him, changes are I am going to be spue out of His mouth and cast into Hell!

Am I to understand that I was taught wrong? – I cannot be saved unless I accept Jesus Christ as Lord! I cannot accept Jesus Christ as Lord, unless I believe Him!  

To believe Him was also a problem for me, but after I read your writing, strangely, I do believe Him! I do accept Him as Lord over all and I am and I do hereby submit myself to his Lordship.  (I would like teachings regarding submitting to His Lordship).

BUT, I have a problem with:

There is not a ministry in South Africa that I know about that so not operate as you have descibed as “false” and not emphasizing Mammon – so how do I go about 

Warning: If you are hearing this Word of God that He has sent us to preach, do not forsake the fellowship of His Body. Come and submit yourself to the Head through those whom He has appointed as ministers of the gospel and shepherds for your souls. There are no lone rangers in the fellowship of believers, but all are brought together for the same Goal:

Kind regards

Charmaine

Dear Paul and Victor,

I am confused with your teaching of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Jesus stated to the disciples that it was necessary for Him to leave so the Comforter may come (referring to the Holy Spirit) Also, Jesus is not on the earth today, but the Holy Spirit.

When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray, Jesus said you should pray: Heavenly Father …..

In the Garden when Jesus was praying and in several instances, Jesus acknowledge the Father, i.e “take this cup from me” and “Father why have Thy forsaken me”?

Please enlighten me.

Also, I did not find the explanation on why the Word of God is not the Word who became flesh and dwelt among men, being Lord Jesus Christ?

Kind regards,

Charmaine

Hi Charmaine,

We bless the Lord for ministering the truth to you through this website He has given us. Where can you join the saints in fellowship? Where else?! 

You’re welcome to join our Sabbath chats and Bible readings/teleconference calls, those that are at a suitable time in South Africa. Register for the Forum on any page on the site, and we’ll direct you to the instructions in the Private section for these meetings. There you can gather with us and other believers – there are even a few from your country. 

As for teaching on His Lordship, here are several:

The Cross – Only the Death Sentence Will Avail 
Taking Up the Cross: “What Is Required of Me?” 
How One Is Saved
Law and Grace
Obedience
Repentance
So You Want to Walk with Jesus 
The Sons of Correction
Submission According to God 

You also ask about the one True God and His appearing in the flesh. Paul summed it up as follows:

“And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (1 Timothy 3:16 KJV).

The questions and doubts you have and more are all answered in our writings; however, let’s take one statement you made and quickly answer it. You say:

Also, Jesus is not on the earth today, but the Holy Spirit.

Who was it that stopped Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus and what did He say to Saul? 

And Who said what to the disciples just before leaving them?

John 14:16-18 MKJV
(16)  And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, so that He may be with you forever,
(17)  the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive because it does not see Him nor know Him. But you know Him, for He dwells with you and shall be in you.
(18)  I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you.

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, so that where I am, you may be also” (John 14:3 MKJV). 

Don’t try to figure it out, Charmaine. If you know Jesus Christ is Lord, as your email subject line declares, then obey Him – the One and Only Single Voice of God commanding and directing you into life. Doing that, you’ll know and understand all that you need to about Who He is. 

“And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true; and we are in Him that is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life” (1 John 5:20 EMTV).

With a focus on following the Lord, you can continue to read from the sections that answer your questions:

Jesus Christ Is God
The Trinity 

You ask: “Also, I did not find the explanation on why the Word of God is not the Word who became flesh and dwelt among men, being Lord Jesus Christ?

Why would we explain that the Word of God is not Jesus Christ, when plainly He is the Word of God made flesh? Or did you mean something different?

Paul and Victor

English - Spanish De: Court Para: The Path of Truth Enviado: Martes, 5 de Abril, 2016 10:08 AM Asunto: Pregunta Yo estaba leyendo un artículo que escribiste acerca de que John Piper es un falso maestro y yo tenía una pregunta al respeto. Antes de hacer la pregunta, me gustaría dejar claro que estoy familiarizado con Piper, pero no conozco completamente su doctrina. Yo solo he visto algunos videos cortos de él en YouTube. Sin embargo, tu crítica de él como un falso maestro gira en torno al hecho de que él predica sobre un lugar de castigo eterno para los no creyentes (el infierno), como puedes leer en tus propios escritos:  Una de las más grandes y peores mentiras contadas por el cristianismo artificial, una a la que John Piper se suscribe y enseña, es que hay un lugar de tormento y castigo interminable para los pecadores. Los hombres piensan que esta doctrina se encuentra en la Biblia, pero aunque es algo que el hombre carnal le desearía a otros, definitivamente no es algo que Dios haya dicho o que alguna vez haya pasado por Su mente. Él hizo la creación como un acto de Su amor. Él amó tanto al mundo que dio a Su Hijo unigénito por él. Nosotros somos de Él, comprados y pagados con Su sangre.  Me preguntaba de dónde sacaste la idea de que no existe el infierno, basado en el hecho de que hay numerosos versículos en la Biblia, algunos incluso dichos por Jesús, quien tú crees que es Dios, como yo también, sobre la existencia de un lugar de castigo eterno para las p...

However, I have fallen into the trap of many false doctrines over the years. Please, how can I get right with God and live a godly life?

You should find plenty to help you get straight on false doctrines and right with God through faith and obedience.  Here are some readings we would suggest, but don’t limit yourself to these: How One Is Saved Holy Waters Obedience Repentance What Is Faith?

“Only God Can Judge”?
From: Rogena To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, December 8, 2015 7:48 AM Subject: Letter to Kirk Cameron How can you say you have gone through the fire? The Mr. Cameron has not? Only God can judge a person's spirit and faith. Doesn't the doctrine state that? I am not taking sides on this issue (mainly because you are using a manipulated version of Gods Word). Rogena From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Rogena Sent: Sunday, December 13, 2015 7:38 AM Subject: Re: Letter to Kirk Cameron “Only God can judge a person's spirit and faith. Doesn't the doctrine state that?” No, it doesn’t, Rogena.  Malachi 3:16-18 ESV (16)  Then those who feared the LORD spoke with one another. The LORD paid attention and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who feared the LORD and esteemed His Name. (17)  “They shall be Mine, says the LORD of hosts, in the day when I make up My treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. (18)  Then once more you shall see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. Do you really believe God would have His children undiscerning and subjected to the many false prophets and wolves He warned would come in the latter days?  We recently heard that Kirk Cameron has a movie promoting Christmas. Are you undiscerning in this matter - That Devilish Spirit of Christmas? He also celebrates Hallow...
