The Lord’s Supper – Reality not Ritual

Subject: False Teachers???

Hi,

I came upon your site.  It is wonderful that you devote time and energy for our Lord and Savior.  However, I am quite perplexed as to where you find your authority in stating the names of “false teachers”.  Who are you to make that determination?  I would be VERY careful in doing so. 

Wondering also, how and where you get the idea that we are not to participate in the Lord’s Supper.  I do a lot of studying of the Bible and NEVER heard this in my life, and I’m 58 years old.  Please let me know where you get this idea.  Thank you!

God Bless,

Diane

“Then Jesus said to them again, Peace to you. As My Father has sent Me, even so I send you” (John 20:21 MKJV).

Diane, what good does your “Lord’s Supper” do you when you are without discernment and reject righteous judgment through those whom Christ sends? Your ceremonies are pagan superstition, not the faith of Christ. 

John 6:51-58 MKJV
(51)  I am the Living Bread which came down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he shall live forever. And truly the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
(52)  Then the Jews argued with one another, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
(53)  Then Jesus says to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves.
(54)  Whoever partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
(55)  For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
(56)  He who partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood dwells in Me, and I in him.
(57)  As the living Father has sent Me, and I live through the Father, so he who partakes of Me, even he shall live by Me.
(58)  This is the Bread which came down from Heaven, not as your fathers ate the manna, and died; he who partakes of this Bread shall live forever.

If you believe Jesus Christ was speaking of a ceremony or ritual, you have yet to meet Him or learn anything substantial about Him, despite your years.

Jesus was speaking of connection through faith, matched with obedience. He was talking reality, not religion; realism and not pretense; life and not death with its form; substance and not mere symbolism.

And well you ought to be careful about judging others, seeing you still have the beam in your eye and aren’t appointed to make judgments.

If you had the faith of Christ, you would be able to see and would rejoice in the Truth rather than reject it. You wouldn’t be perplexed about Jesus and His servants identifying false teachers. Being a follower of false teachers, their judgment falls on you as well. 

Jude 1:14-19 EMTV
(14)  Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,
(15)  to execute judgment against all, and to convict all the ungodly among them about all their ungodly deeds which they have committed impiously, and about all the harsh words which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
(16)  These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaks puffed up words, flattering people to gain advantage.
(17)  But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ,
(18)  how they told you that in the last time there would be mockers, walking according to their own ungodly lusts.
(19)  These are those who cause divisions, worldly, not having the Spirit.

Diane, you are yet dead in your sins, blind to the enemy’s devices and to the Lord’s glory. We’re here to change that for His sake – and yours.

Do I Need a Water Baptism?
From: Angela To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, January 09, 2016 7:59 AM Subject: FalseTeachers Hi I came to faith 6 months ago. I've listened to a lot of teachings, but mostly after some time, I stop listening to them as something in me feels like I'm being deceived ( including quite a few of the people on your list ) . I wanted to ask ( apart from yourselves ) , are there any true teachers out there ? Any views on Peter Michael Martinez ? Its only since coming to faith that I realize how much deception is out there. My other major concern is water baptism. Do I need a water baptism ? How can I when the churches that I've attended ( and left ) are preaching false words. I do not want to be baptized by someone who is not true. Any advice would be greatly welcomed. Blessings,  Angie From: Paul Cohen To: Angela Cc: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Saturday, January 16, 2016 7:26 AM Subject: Re: False Teachers Hi Angela,  You ask about water baptism. Check over our site carefully for content, because you missed this section: Water Baptism. (The Site Map gives you an overview of everything listed at The Path of Truth.) We don’t know anything about Peter Michael Martinez, but just looking at http://unitedforawakening.com/ and the introduction he gives about himself, we can tell you he’s false. “Peter Michael Martinez is a nationally recognized apostolic voice for Awakening. Well regarded since 1995 as an author, conference speaker, radio host, an...
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. (10)  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses unto salvat...
