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.

"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).

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.

Eternal Life is Quality, Not Quantity
From: Charles To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, January 08, 2016, 10:00 PM Subject: Eternal or Everlasting I saw your discussion about eternal hell in the title "The True Meaning of Forever, Everlasting and Hell. In it you make attempts at proving that everlasting does not mean forever and ever.  So tell me what to make of Jesus' words in John 3:16 when he says God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him has eternal life.  If eternal does not mean forever and ever then what exactly is Jesus saying in this verse. Are you saying when scripture talks of punishment for eternity it doesn't mean that but that when we read about eternal life we can beleieve that means forever and ever?  I am quite confused by what you write. Charles From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Charles Sent: Monday, January 18, 2016 6:56 AM Subject: Re: Eternal or Everlasting “Eternal life,” Charles, is a quality of life, not quantity. Notice that there’s no such thing as “eternal death” in the Scriptures.  The Lord said to one man, “Follow Me; and let the dead bury their dead” (Matthew 8:22). There are those living in this world who are dead because they don’t have eternal life. They are dead to God. That’s you; you’re dead, and that’s why you don’t understand these things. You’ve been born of the flesh, but not of the Spirit: John 3:1-6 MKJV (1)  And there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. ...
