How do you know what is truth, Ashish? There is only one way – and that is to ask God to show you and to be prepared to give up your life. Because coming to the Truth, the Lord Jesus Christ, means your life will be forfeited. All men are liars, so coming to the truth means your end, and that’s a good thing. It’s the end of being dead to God and the beginning of being alive to Him, which in the Bible is called “eternal life.”

Luke 18:18-27 MKJV
(18)  And a certain ruler asked Him, saying, Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
(19)  And Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me good? None is good except One, God.
(20)  You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not bear false witness, honor your father and your mother.
(21)  And he said, I have kept all these from my youth up.
(22)  And when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, Yet you lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven. And come, follow Me.
(23)  And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful, for he was very rich.
(24)  And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, He said, How hardly those having riches shall enter into the kingdom of God!
(25)  For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye than for a rich one to enter into the Kingdom of God.
(26)  And the ones who heard said, And who can be saved?
(27)  And He said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

The truth isn’t just something you hear – it’s what you live by.

“And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written that ‘man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God’” (Luke 4:4 MKJV).

The Boldness of Faith, the Vanity of Bluffing
From: Rick To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, May 31, 2005 9:49 AM Subject: Are you ready?  Hello Paul,  If you want to continue to send me your email blurb about your religious beliefs, then you must then be ready to meet.   You obviously are passionate about something, although for the life of me, I don't know what that is…yet.   So come and look me in the eye and tell me.  You seem fearless in your writing and your advertising.   Are you fearless in real life?  Meet me.  Name the place and time.  I have previous commitments already set this week so suggest a week or two from now.   Say, Monday morning the 13th of June or the afternoon of Tuesday the 14th?  Let me know, and I’ll meet with you.  If you aren’t up to it, then take me off your email list.  Simple.  Clean.  Obvious.  With great respect, I remain,    Rick [Afterwards, Paul Cohen wrote to Rick:] Hi Rick,  We have no problem meeting with you face to face. However, I live in Helena, and am also quite busy, as is Victor in Canada. How about we meet at Victor's farm, in Lethbridge? The first weekend of July would work well for us, Saturday the 2nd, sometime in the early afternoon, would be optimal. How would that work for you? Let me know and I will confirm with all there and get back to you. If another time around that weekend is better, we will see what we can do. If you wish to bring others with you, friends, family, consultants, ministers, wh...
Meandering Without the Shepherd
From: Jim To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, December 20, 2015 8:39 PM Subject: On Church Attendance I came across your website this evening and I am intrigued.  I haven’t read all that I want to read as yet, but, I will meander through it.  I read your article regarding salvation.  I scanned the “false doctrines” articles.  Here’s my question.  I do not attend church regularly.  It is in my heart to do that so as to not avoid gathering with other like minded believers.  Unfortunately every church in my area either teaches eternal torment for the unbelieving or the church is liberal and accepts just about anything as doctrine.  I’m not looking for advice, but I would like your opinion.  Thank you, Jim  From: Victor Hafichuk To: Jim Sent: Friday, January 01, 2016 1:58 PM Subject: Re: On Church Attendance Hi Jim,  Do sheep select their own pastures, food, and companions, or do their shepherds guide and manage them? If Jesus Christ is your Shepherd, then you can be certain He is leading you where you need to be, step by step, everything in its place and time. “God sets the solitary in families: He brings out those which are bound with chains…”  But if you’re doing your own thing in His Name, then “the rebellious dwell in a dry land” (Psalms 68:6 KJV). Even though that land is populated by many and apparently prosperous.  “Righteous are You, O LORD, when I complain to You; yet I would plead my case before You. Why does the way of the wi...
Do Not Trust Your Feelings
English - Spanish From: Tonya To: Paul Cohen Sent: Saturday, January 23, 2016 12:27 AM Subject: Hi can I get your advice?  Hi, my name Is Tonya, im 35 years old and I grew up not knowing God in a house of 6 kids and my dad was divorced and me and my 2 brothers were with him as he met a gf with 3 kids and they were together 13 years. They both stayed together very unhappy but for us kids. Towards the end they both at the same time, met other ppl online and split up and for the last 15 years are both very happy now. I feel this has played a role in my life as im in the same situation as well as my other brothers and sister that are in relationships. It's sad how that happens and I do not want this for my kids.  I met my husband at 19 years old, neither of us knew God. We ended up getting married 2 years later and I had our first son right before we got married. He joined the military for 4 years. We have 3 kids and have been together 16 years now married for 14.   We have had many problems over these years beginning after our first child was born.  They got worse and he did some things while being over seas and he then got into game addiction. He has always played games since the beginning but they got worse. He recently just spent over 2000 in 2 months on his game he plays non stop. It's very bad and has taken his life and has caused us to split up many times. I would say something and it lead to a fight then he would always pack and leave us till I begged him back. ...
