Foolishly Believing the Bible and Not the Word Made Flesh

Your message in the subject line was truncated, Carol. Would you like to try again using the body of the email this time to make sure we get your entire letter?  

Are you aware that the original Gospel of Luke isn’t available? Today’s Bibles are translations derived from different manuscripts a hundred years or so later than the original texts. And did you know that these manuscripts sometimes differ from one another? Are you suggesting the Holy Spirit inspired those who changed or corrupted the original manuscripts – that God isn’t in agreement with Himself?

The Bible is the whole word of God, and he is perfect, why would you think that God would hide any of his words, like another book if it’s important for man to follow, none of the books contradict each other, the authors tell some stories in a different way, that’s all.

If you ask the Holy Spirit to give you understanding you will see it all come together.

The Bible is the whole word of God,” Carol

“Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written” (John 21:25 ESV).

How is the Bible the whole word of God, when even during His earthly lifetime, the Lord said far, far more than is recorded for us in the Scriptures? Are all the other things He spoke not the Word of God?

And did Jesus stop acting and speaking there? For you He has, because you don’t hear His voice. In fact, for you, He never began to speak because you’ve never heard from Him. If you were hearing Him, you’d know that the Word of God still communicates with His people, and is by no means limited to the Bible in doing so. 

“And because of this we give thanks to God without ceasing, that having received the Word of hearing from us, you welcomed it as of God, not as a word of men, but as it is, truly the Word of God, which also works in you, the ones believing” (1 Thessalonians 2:13 LITV).

The testimony of Paul and those with him was received as the Word of God by those who believed, which Word it was and is. The same goes for all servants of God who testify by His Spirit of Jesus Christ – “for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Revelation 19:10 MKJV).

Jesus Christ is the Word of God. Only by having Him do we have the Whole Word of God – or any of it, because without Him, you know nothing of God no matter how perfect the Scriptures you have are, or how many times you’ve red them. 

“First, you must understand this: No prophecy in Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation” (2 Peter 1:20 GW).

Many in the days of the Lord’s flesh had His Perfect Word in Scripture, but it profited them not a whit because they didn’t believe on the Father, just like YOU don’t believe on Him as we speak by Him.

So you’ve been born again of paper and ink? We’ve been born again of God, also known as the Word of God made flesh: 

“…having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the living Word of God, and abiding forever” (1 Peter 1:23 MKJV).

“I write to you, fathers, because you have known Him Who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the Word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one” (1 John 2:14 MKJV).

“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith” (1 John 5:4 ESV).

Your god is a book, but our God is the Living Resurrected Lord of All. 

You’ve specified the Gospel of Luke being inspired by the Spirit of God, likely because you disagreed with the corruption we’ve noted occurring in this book with the addition of a “deathbed conversion” of one of the criminals at the Lord’s crucifixion. You defend all Scriptures being valid, including this apocryphal story in Luke, by saying:

“…none of the books contradict each other, the authors tell some stories in a different way, that’s all.

But it’s exactly for this reason that the deathbed conversion in Luke must be invalidated as a latter addition by unscrupulous souls. Not only isn’t it noted in any of the other Gospels, but it’s also flatly contradicted in two of them, Matthew and Mark, as noted in our writing. Have you red it? 

The Book of Luke Corrupted: A Deathbed Conversion Tale

And note what we say at the end:

IMPORTANT: We must solemnly remind you that while there are spurious passages in the Scriptures, they are few and far between. Furthermore, there are many apparent inconsistencies in Scripture which have valid explanations (not rationalizations, but true, Scripturally-sound explanations). Our only assurance of understanding and discernment between true and false is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, by Whose Spirit we are given to know the Truth He is.

The Holy Spirit has given us understanding, Carol, which is in harmony with all sound reason according to the revelation of Jesus Christ. You need to ask yourself why you aren’t in harmony with Him and why you aren’t receiving the Word of hearing from us. We’ve given you the answer, but you need to know it for yourself.

You ARE arguing with us, Carol. See how readily you lie? It’s your nature to lie. So that’s the not the Holy Spirit in your heart – it’s the man of sin, spawn of Satan the liar and murderer.

If you knew Gods truth you wouldn’t be calling me a lier Paul, may God forgive you and I pray you will ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in your speech and life

Please do not get in touch with me again, as you only want to argue your point just to say you are right, and that is not of God.

Satan's Light and Righteousness Versus God's
From: Andrew To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, March 05, 2016 9:03 AM Subject: Article about Joseph Prince A warning to you,  I read your article about Joseph Prince.  I laughed through much of and I have some issues with your statements.  You are claiming to know the motives and heart of Joseph Prince Ministries.  Yet you are a judge.  And for what reason I'm not sure.  Never ever in the years that I have watched him have ever been compelled to give money! Out of the goodness of my heart I wanted to give.  You are foolish and stepping on dangerous ground blatantly calling out ministries that you know nothing about.  Through his ministries I was set free from sin-consciousness, fears of public speaking, and for years I was addicted to pornography and after having a revelation through a message by Joseph Prince on Jesus' love towards me I was set free! Not in my efforts but by grace.   You are afraid of money or prosperity  yet the bible says it is the love of money that is a root to all kinds of evil ( not money it self.) I can tell you've probably only watched a few messages by Joseph and have judged without further investigations.  Joseph Prince preaches quite often on the life of Joseph and how the lord was with Joseph and made him prosper.  Joseph Prince said "prosperity is not about money but God is always with us." There are thousands of people who have been sent free from the law and walking in a life to glorify Jesus. You claim we need to keep sabbaths...
Repentance, Placing the Cart in Front of the Horse
English - Spanish From: Paul To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, May 02, 2016 5:00 AM Subject: 8 Repentance Steps Hi Guys Interesting page. Just a question on your eight steps of repentance. What if you committed a sin you weren't aware of how would you go through all of the 8 steps?  if I have done a sin I am not aware of does that mean I have not completed proper repentance? Regards Paul From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Paul Sent: Sunday, May 08, 2016 5:09 PM Subject: Re: 8 Repentance Steps Paul, it’s not about dotting all the “I’s” and crossing all the “t’s”. It’s all about motive and attitude. If you seek the Lord to do His will, He’ll surely cause you to know all you need to know. He’ll convict you of any sin and give you the gift of repentance to turn from it. Believe and obey; it’s for your life, His Eternal Life He gives to those who believe on Him. Jesus Christ is Lord. Victor Paul, Paul Cohen here. You have the cart in front of the horse. Those 8 elements follow the repentance that comes from God. In other words, when those elements are present, we know that God is doing a miraculous work of salvation in the person. And when any of those elements are absent, we know that God isn’t doing the work.  And, O man, the one judging those who do such things, and practice them, do you think this, that you shall escape the judgment of God? Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, and the forbearance and long-suffering, not ...
Generational Curses and Reversing Them
From: Raul To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, June 14, 2016 11:06 AM Subject: Quick Question. . Hello, I wanted to ask if you believe in generational curses? Some doctrines say Jesus finish e everything in the cross,  so there is no generational curses for a new born in Christ. Can you explain ? I am very confuse because i myself felt at times as if i had generational curses from my ancestors. My life is not success in Jesus and don't understand why. Thanks,  and God bless.  From: Paul Cohen To: Raul Cc: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Monday, June 27, 2016 7:41 AM Subject: Re: Quick Question A man named Felix recently asked us about the same topic, Raul. Here is his letter:  From: Felix To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, May 29, 2016 8:50 AM Thanks for your nice piece, l have understood that God curses come as a result of being disobedient to him, that is not obeying His Laws. But is there anything like generational curse? Because when u read 2kings14:5-6 it says that it is written in the book of law that parents are not to be put to death for crimes committed by their children and children are not to be put to death for the crimes committed by their parents; a person is to be put to death only for a crime he himself has committed. Jer.31:29-30 Eze.18:1-32 Job.21:19-20 These three chapters in the bible also state it clear that nobody is punished cos of the sins of his/her parents but everyone will be judged according to his/her deeds so where...
