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

What is Willful Sin?
From: Pieter Stemmett To: Victor Hafichuk Date: 11/24/2015 12:48 PM Subject: Hebrews 10:26 Hi, friends in Christ. I red your correspondence with Jan. I have a problem with his interpertation of the verse in the subject let me paste what I send him. Hi, I listen to your video about willful sinning and that there is no forgiveness. What about Paul that ask Jesus to take a particular sin from him and Jesus say no that sin will keep you humble before me. He also said that the things I want to do I do not, but what I do not want to do that I do. Also in the old testament all the righteous men of God sin willfully David, Abraham, Solomon and the list goes on. You know lust, Idolatry, murder and so on. God forgive them all    You see I become a Christian by own choice. When I was sixteen. I read the bible and yet I still backslide. Doing every sin under son. I was exactly like the periodical son, after I have given my life to Christ. I repented of my sin but some I do over and over again. I am at the point in my life that I do not want to sin. I also struggle with certain sin. I ask Jesus to take it away. Then for a moment it is gone. But then the temptation is so strong that I stumble again. In my heart I feel that I need to repent and I do. Like Jesus said I will only wash your feet because it will become dirty. I take it that even the followers of Jesus sin. What about the willful sin of Peter to deny Christ three times. Jesus told him that he will do it, and he st...
“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...
Who Is Immune to Satan’s Deceptions?
English - Spanish From: Valerie To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, October 01, 2016 9:38 AM Subject: So sad I read the back and forth monologue regarding Clayton Jennings. As a Christian I am saddened by all of you. Your nasty banter is exactly what turns non believers away from Christianity. You lost more than you gained in this exchange.  My faith remains in Jesus. One on one.  Valerie From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Valerie Sent: Wednesday, October 05, 2016 7:24 AM Subject: Re: So sad Your theory doesn’t hold up to Reality, Valerie. People seeking the Truth are turned towards Christ when they see our exposure of false messiahs like Clayton’s artificial Jesus. They are so thankful that light has come to cut through the darkness of religious pretense and confusion. It’s idolaters like you who are offended and turn away from the Truth, “Christian” heathen whose empty Opinion is condemned by the Word of God made flesh.  2 Corinthians 11:13-15 MKJV (13)  For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. (14)  Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light? (15)  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works. What makes you think false teachers, as Paul mentions, don’t preach what seems to be the True Gospel?  What makes you think the elect Jesus refers...
