Insulting the Lord with Hasty Judgement

Hi there, 

After being inspired by a film with Todd White, I wanted to see if there were any skeptics out there who could prove my enthusiasm wrong. So I came across this website and was quite intrigued. I found myself going “Yes…Yes…So good..So right…This guy’s got his head screwed on right.. waaaait-“ .. 

“One of the biggest and worst lies ever told in manmade Christianity, one that John Piper subscribes to and teaches, is that there is a place of interminable torment and punishment for sinners.” 

I’m sorry sir, after reading through your page for last few hours (Yes. Hours.) you come across as very well read and educated on biblical truths. How do you see past this one? 

Revelation 21:8
Matthew 25:46
Psalm 9:17
2 Thessalonians 1:9
Matthew 13:50
Acts 2:27
Mark 9:43
Jude 1:7
Proverbs 15:24
Proverbs 23:14
Matthew 13:42
Matthew 25:41
Revelation 19:20
Proverbs 15:11
Matthew 16:19
2 Peter 2:4
Revelation 20:13
Matthew 10:28
Ezekiel 18:20

Yes. All verses pertaining to hell. Are you going to tell me that none of these were inspired and spoken by the Lord, and that they are just verses by mere carnal men? 

I honestly would never take this much time to try to argue a point that is so obviously and unmistakably wrong, but in most other areas, you and your “team” seem pretty intelligent. Except on this one. Tell me why I’m wrong.

Thanks,

Megan

I just want to add that I should have been skeptical of this website from the very moment I realized Rob Bell was not listed on your list of false teachers. Oh my. A man who distorts the bible in every which way yet you somehow manage to support him.

Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and she that makes haste with her feet sins” (Proverbs 19:2).

Megan, how can you rightly conclude that because we haven’t listed Rob Bell as a false teacher we therefore agree with him? Not only is that a false assumption, it goes against what we’ve plainly stated in the very first words introducing the False Teachers Exposed section:

This list is not meant to be an exhaustive one. What is important is that one learns to discern truth from error.

‘Then you shall again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God, and him who does not serve Him’ (Malachi 3:18 MKJV).

Regarding the big lie John Piper subscribes to, you seemed to have missed the key word, “interminable”: 

One of the biggest and worst lies ever told in manmade Christianity, one that John Piper subscribes to and teaches, is that there is a place of interminable torment and punishment for sinners.

We don’t deny there’s a place of torment or punishment – we’ve been there and see many others there. We only point out that there’s no such thing as a place of torment that doesn’t end. Jesus Christ isn’t a loser; He is the Winner of all, as the Scriptures amply declare from beginning to end. See The Restitution of All Things. This section of instruction will answer the Scriptures you list in your email.

Does it insult your righteousness, Megan, that Jesus Christ is the Savior of all men? Along those lines, you also wrongly ascribe our writings to “intelligence.” Our writings are revelation from God and have nothing to do with man’s intelligence or abilities. You’ll get nowhere with God by your intelligence:

“At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank You, O Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the sophisticated and cunning, and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight” (Matthew 11:25-26 MKJV). 

“For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7 MKJV). 

And here’s where you get tripped up: 

“For since, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom did not know God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe” (1 Corinthians 1:21 MKJV).

Paul, you so conveniently ignore all the verses that mention eternity. 

You say, “Judgement Fires are Correction, Not Destruction.” 
2 Thessalonians 1:9 “They will be punished with EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power” 

You question, “Is Hell Forever? Those who teach an eternal (everlasting, time without end) Hell plainly teach that Hell is the Omega (English “Z”) because implying there is no end to it.” 

Matthew 25:46 “Then they will go away to ETERNAL PUNISHMENT, but the righteous to eternal life.” 

Also, this is a biblical debate pertaining to strictly what the bible states, so I don’t know how you get off on attacking my character by asking, “Does it insult your righteousness?” If you want to harness effective conversation you’ll abstain from juvenile remarks that have nothing to do with the subject matter. 

John 14:6 “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” 

Matthew 7:22-23 “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS”

How are all men to spend everlasting life in paradise if they do not first go to the Son and ask for forgiveness and relationship with Christ? 

You paint a picture of a God who gives these laws to man, yet when man chooses not to keep them and turn his back on God while denying His power and existence and living a life far from Him, man receives eternal life regardless. This just is not true.

Megan, you haven’t responsibly red either my letter or the entire section of writings we gave you, which answer the very objections you raise and repeat. If you won’t do that, you have nothing to offer us except your ignorant opinions and presumptions, none of which are true. Stop insulting the Lord Jesus Christ. Get responsible and read everything in the section I gave you and don’t write back if you won’t answer everything I’ve specifically pointed out to you.

Paul

I’m insulting the Lord Jesus Christ by accurately applying context to scripture which you so blatantly ignore? You’re so far from furthering the kingdom Paul by spreading your awful lies. You’ll have to answer to God one day. Not wasting anymore of my time on you or your site of deceitful lies and mockery. Stop ignoring scripture and get your head out of the clouds. You’re no better than false prophets such as Joel Olsteen.

Deluded to Believe Hell Is Never Ending
From: Dan To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, May 18, 2016 8:55 AM Subject: Mary Baxter Well I do have to say you have no idea about what the bible really says. You should really look up the judgements of God and you will then know that judgement is forever in hell. Why do you think it says death and hell are thrown into the lake of fire? What does fire do but burns continually, and it's not fire but actually liquid molten sulfur continually burning and it is true that the flesh continually comes back because that's the working of the tree of life except when those are in hell there will be continual torment.  And the bible does say that. Yes once in hell the judgement is set, there's no return from hell because we can never ever righteous except for God in us therefore no amount of judgement upon those in hell can ever make them righteous so therefore the torment will continue for ever. The bible says God will destroy both body and soul in hell. Please study things before you say things that are not true,  thankyou.  From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Dan Sent: Sunday, May 22, 2016 7:02 AM Subject: Re: Mary Baxter “Why do you think it says death and hell are thrown into the lake of fire?” Because “the last enemy to be destroyed is death” (1 Corinthians 15:26 ESV).

From: Tang To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, May 17, 2016 5:54 PM Subject: Hi, thank you and I ask for your counsel First of all, greetings. I have been reading your site for hours at a time everyday since I accidentally (divinely ordained) came across your site. Everything that has occurred in my life has been has led me to this site. I just want to say thank you for this website. Glory to our Lord! I wonder if I can open up as I have NO ONE I can talk to. I am in my mid forties, and I feel so defeated, humiliated, hurt and ashamed, financially broke, physically in intense pain in my feet everyday and walk like an old lady [inflammation and gout], and I feel I am not good as a husband, dad and career person, because I feel like a quitter. I have no house or any assets. All my friends are wealthy and own houses and have their own plane to fly around in. In no particular order I would like to start of with my career. As a young boy I always wanted to an airline pilot. To cut a long story short, I miraculously got a scholarship to Australia. I was in my teens, my partner and our daughter flew to Australia for 3 years from the Pacific islands. I did a degree and got my Australian pilot license. The I went back home and I by the grace of God got a job as a commuter first officer pilot. As the next promotion was coming up, I was to go from the bottom of the seniority list to the next commander. Other First officers not happy I was going to jump them. Anyway, i...
Tongues, Dreams, Visions, and Other Gifts
From: Justin To: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Thursday, December 08, 2016 2:23 PM Subject: Baptism in the Holy Spirit Hello Mr Hafichuk! My name is Justin and i have been walking with the Lord for 16 years now and i just discovered your website today. My testimony is very similar to your story in that i repented with my whole heart 16 years ago and have held fast to that repentance and walked with the Spirit for all of these years and have been shown many of the same fallacies of the modern day Christian church as well as the antichrist spirit which leads them.  I would love to write you another email soon and share/fellowship with you in regard to my walk/sufferings with the Lord all of these many years. I wrote you today specifically to see if you would mind answering a question for me about the Baptism in the Holy Ghost. I was shown through revelation of the Promise of the Father many years ago, probably about 9 years ago. I have been seeking this infilling and experience ever since. Carrying my cross and dying to self in the process.  My question is, when you received the Spirit and later spoke in tongues, did the tongues come forth as the Spirit gave utterance? Or was it something that you had to do yourself in order to speak in tongues? I ask because in my younger years in the Lord i was around American churches and people tried to instruct me on how to speak in tongues, they would say repeat the sounds i am making...gibberish, Or say these syllables and now you ar...
