A Joseph Hedgecock Follower Defends Selling the Gospel

Hello Victor, Paul, Sara and Edwin,

To my surprise and by coincident I read you have Joseph Hedgecock and Servants of the Lord Ministries on your list of false teachers/organisations.

I read the part where a woman said she got hurt by listening to Joseph and when you ask her to explain more in detail she refused to go into your question. It sounded for me like there was something wrong in the way she presented here accusation.

Many did not follow the Lord Jesus because they found His words hard and exactly that is what is happening today. It is even a warning for the end times that people will not endure sound doctrine.

Then Victor use words as “these things don’t ring true, because…..

How do you discern this, if you do it out of your reasoning and understanding you will be deceived, only by the Holy Spirit one can come to truth. Only the right divided Word of God, that what the Lord meant by it, is the truth. Not what believers make of it by reading it and try to explain it.

I can clearly read in the comments of Paul Cohen that he did not read the books of Joseph but somehow give his own opinion on it, for example that the cross is not applied. Without the cross it is not possible to enter into the Kingdom of God now, that is at this right moment.

More practical teaching than S.O.L.M. you will not find, it is a daily taking up your cross.

He also mentioned that books are sold for money, his wrong explanation using ´freeling received and freely give and even uses the words “money solicitation”. If you go into a shop and ask for a free Bible, they will ask you for money to buy it because it cost money to print it.

I testify that since I came in contact with S.O.L.M. , that was when I was working with YWAM, I found this teaching ministry giving me more truth than I ever received in the former 20 years in any church or teaching I listened to on the internet. I have been a friend of this organisation which means that I help them whenever they are here in Holland or Belgium.

They sell books because it cost money to get them printed and transported. The books which are going to Africa sometimes are given away when people can’t effort them. Even last year when some came to Holland and we rented a table during a Christian meeting, we gave away 260 for free that day. I figured out this whole day had cost more than 1200 euro.

Why? Because the Lord said so!

These people travel all over the world, leaving their families, without asking for money but leave it up to the church/organisation for a offering. In all those years they have never ask me once for money. They will go to the other side of the earth to teach in a little bible group and will sleep wherever they are invited. They go through hardship and don’t complain. No, they get wrongly accused by others who are not willing to give up their live to the Lord Jesus Christ but instead keep using their own Lordship and do whatever they think they have to do without consulting the Lord.

I have given my testimony out of a 12 year experience knowing these people and also what they teach.

Hi Bert,

You say about the woman who came to us complaining about Joseph Hedgecock and his “Servants of the Lord Ministries”:

It sounded for me like there was something wrong in the way she presented here accusation.

Do you understand the title and summary we gave for our posting on Hedgecock and his organization? 

Throw Out the Bathwater, Not the Baby

We often note the true things false teachers say, because people need to know that the truth is no respecter of persons. Rejecting a person as a teacher from God doesn’t give one license to reject everything that person says. As Jesus said of His opponents, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat [teaching Moses’ words]. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, observe and do. But do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do” (Matthew 23:2-3 MKJV).

How about the summarization at the end – did you read this? 

Our message to Jeanie and all others is this: If you fall for Hedgecock’s or other false teachers’ ministries, don’t blame them. Something is wrong with you that caused you to fall for them, and far better you should have your shortfall addressed than remain in bitterness and perpetual defeat. Then you won’t throw out the Baby with the bathwater. But if you don’t love the Truth, you’ll reject the good with the bad, and be as badly off or worse than the false teachers from whom you’ve departed.

You say about Hedgecock and his people: 

They will go to the other side of the earth to teach in a little bible group and will sleep wherever they are invited. They go through hardship and don’t complain.

We don’t doubt your assessment. But zeal and sacrifice don’t make Joseph or his teaching right (though he speaks some truth).

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you compass sea and the dry land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves” (Matthew 23:15 MKJV). 

“If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing” (1 Corinthians 13:3 ESV). 

Even if Joseph gave away all his books, it’s still another gospel he’s preaching, about which the apostle Paul said:

“But even if we or an angel from Heaven preach a gospel to you beside what we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we said before, and now I say again, If anyone preaches a gospel to you beside what you have received, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:8-9 MKJV). 

And by the way, a bookstore selling a Bible isn’t the same thing at all as a man selling what he proposes is the truth God gave him. Where do you find any men of God selling the substance of their ministry? You should know better after so many years of professing faith, reading the Bible, and presenting yourself to others as a judge. 

Instead of focusing on a man and his organization, Bert, shouldn’t you be focusing on the Lord Jesus Christ and His Gospel? Have you heard the Gospel we preach, which is according to the Lord and His Scriptures? Did you read all the support links in our posting of Hedgecock? It appears not. Read those along with the rest of our Teachings, Our Testimonies, Diabolical Doctrines and The True Marks of a Cult. Then come back to us and talk to us about the truth rather than your opinion of a man.

Help, I'm Apostate!
From: Joseph To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, July 02, 2016 4:54 PM Subject: Apostate I Think I've been Cut Off I fell into to many snares and gave satan to much to work with. My family has been over ran and I lost track of what I was being called out of. I've been on prescription pain killers for over 10 years now for a back problem (Addicted) My main focus in life was to get on disabilty instead of pleasing God and I built up a false realty that my way of life was acceptable with God, then when I started to get off of the pain killers I realized the damage that I had done to my brain (Bipolar Disorder) and have been overwhelmed by dysfunctional horrible intrusive thoughts, Panic attacks, breathing problems and my sleeping patterns are off. I have a fearful realization that God had turned me over to reprobation. My wife is a unbeliever and I never fully broke away from my old life. My wife and I are separated now and none of my children are christians. I fear the Holy Spirit may have left me. How far will God go to keep you from falling away? I've prayed and tried to turn things around but to much damage has been done and I am not well. Would he turn someone over to Satan (Which I know he has done) for the destuction of the flesh 1 Co 5:5 (or because I've become a castaway) I'm hoping he would go to these extreems to keep me from being cut off. I know the Holy Spirit came into my life when I was 20 years old and I had a indescribable Joy at that time but since ...

I got saved less then 2 years ago and my lesson has been do not put your trust in man as they will fail you. I've listen to some men on your false preachers list in the past and the holy spirit told me to move on. My thing is how do i know a true man of God from a wolf that knows how to hide very well. The bible say you will see by their fruits that i know but how do i see the hidden fruits like lies they tell that passes over our heads. I did not agree with all of you list but like i said i pray to the LORD for discernment in that he opens up my eyes. After all this who do you all listen to??

Dealing with Demonic Possession and Confusion
From: Kisa To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, March 31, 2016 1:16 PM I am in need of help. I'm a mother of 3 and dealing with some strange experiences. My whole life something has felt wrong. I said the prayer when I was 5...nothing....re dedicated my life to Christ as a teen....nothing. I have not attended church my adult life. About two years ago I started to feel a tingling sensation in my feet. Then a cold sensation that sweeps up my spine and     now kind of all over. I had no idea what is was. Through my searching I found out about kundalini. It mentioned it being the same thing as the holy spirit energy. It scared me.I had no idea. I've been suffering from a really heavy feeling. I got into the bible for weeks. Questioned my mom about the baptism of the holy spirit. She didn't know. Long story short I ended up reading about chakras, goddess energy, crystals, grounding in mother earth and energy healing. I kept searching and searching because I could never settle on anything. Nothing seemed right. I have done a couple of sacral energy healing at a local therapy place. I wasn't trying to open up anything. Just get rid of the energy feeling. Im dizzy all the time.I asked him to focus on my foread because I had a lot of pressure.  I asked about ancestor curses because all the women in my family for generations suffer from extreme fatigue. No medical explanation?? Recently it has gotten so bad. He said I had an entity attached to me and we tried to g...
