Dear Victor Hafichuk & Paul Cohen


I’m 18 years old  and  i’m at a stage  of my life  when i have  to take  some decisions.
I want  you to ask if  learning  for  a  job (studying ,highschool, college and  the  list  keep going  on  )  or  bodybuilding   is  a  sin ? I really don’t know about  these  things  if  are sins  or  not. I mean studying  for  a  good  job  or  beeing  an athlet. I’m doing  sport  in order  to get approved  for  the  college. Of course  the  sport   has   good  things but also bad  things  too ( injuries and  other  things like  that ).
Please  reply me !

With respect 
Wayne

“For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable to all things, having promise of the present life, and of that which is to come” (1 Timothy 4:8 MKJV).

Hi Wayne,

Without knowing all the details of your situation, it isn’t our place to advise you on these matters, except to tell you to do the best with what God has given you in the way of instruction and guidance in various ways. 

And if you will, it certainly can do you good to read and ponder many of the Teachings on our site that God has provided for all. In particular, you might start with:

Obedience

So You Want to Walk with Jesus 

Apply yourself to the wisdom and instruction given by God, and you will do well.

Proverbs 4:1-27 MKJV
(1)  Sons, hear the instruction of a father, and listen in order to know understanding.
(2)  For I give you good teaching; do not forsake my law.
(3)  For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
(4)  He also taught me, and said to me, Let your heart hold fast my words, keep my commandments and live.
(5)  Get wisdom, get understanding; forget not; nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
(6)  Do not forsake her, and she shall preserve you; love her, and she shall keep you.
(7)  Wisdom is the main thing; get wisdom; and with all your getting get understanding.
(8)  Prize her, and she shall lift you up; she shall bring you to honor when you embrace her.
(9)  She shall give to your hand an ornament of grace; she shall shield you with a crown of glory.
(10)  Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of your life shall be many.
(11)  I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in the right paths.
(12)  When you go, your steps shall not be narrowed, and when you run, you shall not stumble.
(13)  Take fast hold of instruction; do not let go; keep her; for she is your life.
(14)  Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not into the way of evil.
(15)  Avoid it; do not pass by it; turn from it, and pass on!
(16)  For they do not sleep, except when they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away unless they cause some to fall.
(17)  For they eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.
(18)  But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shines more and more to the perfect day.
(19)  The way of the wicked is as darkness; they know not at what they stumble.
(20)  My son, listen to my words; bow down your ear to my sayings.
(21)  Let them not depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart.
(22)  For they are life to those who find them, and health to all his flesh.
(23)  Keep your heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
(24)  Put away from you a wicked mouth, and devious lips put far from you.
(25)  Let your eyes look right on, and let your eyelids look straight before you.
(26)  Ponder the path of your feet, and all your ways will be established.
(27)  Do not turn to the right hand nor to the left; remove your foot from evil.

Paul and Victor

Turning from the Catholic church to the Lord
From: Amanda To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, March 22, 2016 4:53 PM Hello, I would value your prayers.  I married an unsaved catholic when I was very backslidden. I was divorced before - also as a result of my own backsliding - so this is my second marriage. I am now consumed by the wrongness of the situation I find myself in - my minister says I will only add to my own sin by leaving this marriage but apart from our child (conceived before we married) I see no blessing and have no peace. I have asked God to take over because I do not know what to do. Amanda From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Amanda Sent: Saturday, April 02, 2016 6:47 AM Subject: Turning to the Lord Jesus Christ Hi Amanda, Were you a believer before you married your second husband, or were you the product of the same church system that includes the Catholic Church? Have you ever been converted to Christ? Tell us more about your spiritual background and what’s happened to you since you began to profess faith.  Know this: If you turn to the Lord with all your heart in genuine, permanent repentance, He will not disregard your plea. That’s because He will have given you to repent, and whom He calls to repentance, He saves. Romans 10:9-13 MKJV (9)  Because if you confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.

A Lover of Bible but Hater of the Truth
From: Warren To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, September 20, 2016 1:11 PM Subject: Your beam I read got questions as with all writings of man,including yours,with caution,utilizing prayer and spiritual discernment, to determine truth from a lie. by the way, all of your suggested reading material is of man,and furthermore their writings most if not all, are referencing psuedo bi les such as esv,mkjv,nlt,nkjv,and so on, all of which are perversions of the true word of God.in short,before you complain about the splinter in gotquestions eye,consider the beam in yours.God bless.

You Don't "Feel" the Holy Spirit
From: Du To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, February 27, 2016 6:17 PM Subject: Questions I'm gonna make this brief so what I want to ask is if one can feel the Holy Spirit? Or is it entirely different, like it goes a lot deeper than just feeling? I read some of what your website states and I really believe it. Another question is since eternal torment is a diabolical doctrine according to the truth, does that make Catholic purgatory true? From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Du Sent: Saturday, March 05, 2016 7:00 AM Subject: Re: Questions No, one doesn’t “feel” the Holy Spirit, Du. The Kingdom of God doesn’t come by observation (tactile senses).  “And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the Kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, The Kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the Kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:20-21 KJV). Yes, the Kingdom is on a different plane altogether from the physical or psychical.   And no, because God doesn’t torture people endlessly doesn’t make Catholic purgatory true. You need to go to the Lord for the pure truth, and by the Fire of Truth, He will purge you of all unholy mixture and unrighteousness. Keep reading our writings if you’re interested in hearing more on this matter from the Word of God.  The Restitution of All Things Paul and Victor From: Du To: Paul Cohen Cc: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Monday, April 18, 2016 1...
