Subject: I’m sorry 

I don’t really know how to start this letter, I miss my family. I’m here in Texas and I’m miserable. I want to come home more than anything in the world. As soon as I landed here and saw my earthly family waiting for me I wanted to turn around and run away as fast as I can. Nothing has changed here, everyone is just as fake as they were before.  I made the worst mistake leaving. I thought I wanted what I wanted and that you all were wrong, but now I’m here and I have this freedom to do whatever and I want nothing more than the Lords law and correction. I feel like a phantom here, it makes me sick to see the way everyone is living in sin and lawlessness. I will do anything it takes to go back home to Helena. I’ve been an ungrateful fool, taking everything personally, letting my hormones and emotions rule my life, and not listening to the wisdom that the Lord has been graciously giving me. This is hell being here. Looking back on everything I see that the Lord just wanted me to give up myself, which is a piece of crap anyways, so that he could give me the true treasure. Since being here Silas is completely ignoring me, and I’m not kidding he doesn’t even acknowledge that I’m here. Paul and Ronnie, I am so sorry for the way I disregarded everything you did for me. Cassidy, I’ve been a truly terrible and unsubmissive wife. Victor, I’ve resented things you’ve said because I took them way too personally. I understand that this is completely pathetic, by I’ve made myself  pathetic by my actions. You all are my real family, and I want nothing more than to be with you all. I need to lay down my will and my entire life for the Lord. I want to do that. I’m sorry that it took all of this for me to realize that. I see now that the Lord planned all of this to open my eyes to the truth, I am a sinner and I know nothing about what is good. I know that I’ve put you all through a lot of crap. I’m sorry.

Hi Maddy,

When I received your letter this morning, these words came to me: “Let there be fruits.” 

All we here are in agreement on this. I’m sure we all forgive you, but we must go on and believe and obey the Lord.

Hi Victor,
I saved that email earlier as a draft but accidentally sent it before it was finished. 

This resonates with me also. I will obey in what the Lord has given me to do and what I already know to do. I realize now that I never really believed that my family was against the  Lord, and I hadn’t fully forsaken them. Being here in Texas I can see that I didn’t have faith, I was blinded by my own desires and will. I am thankful for what the Lord is doing here in this situation, a few days ago it seemed so confusing and impossible but now it makes sense. All the glory goes to Him! Thank you all for your forgiveness. 
Amen, thank you Victor.

Good evening Paul,
I hope all is well, I wanted to ask permission to participate in some bible readings and the Sabbath chat. I also noticed several people unfriended me on FaceBook, not that it matters a whole lot. I was thinking maybe I wasn’t allowed to be part of the group right now? If that’s the case then that’s the Lords will and I will obey in what he’s given, but I wanted to ask for clarity on that. 

Thank you and goodnight

Subject: Doctors appointment 

Hi all, 
I wanted to give a quick update! 
I went in for my pregnancy evaluation and testing today. I am currently 5 1/2 weeks pregnant and he/she is due on February 22nd. The doctor wanted to schedule a sonogram to measure the baby and hear if the heartbeat is healthy, but I declined. I have read some things saying that sonograms can be dangerous. Also the government offered me insurance, which will cover all doctor bills during the pregnancy and a few months after. I remembered having several conversations regarding health insurance and car insurance with you all, should I also decline this? 

Thank you Lord for this new life!

Hello and Good evening,

Cassidy messaged me earlier today saying that I don’t need to be calling anyone, only to email you Paul. I told him that I hadn’t called anyone except for you and him. He asked if I had called Jeannie, I told him that we had talked very briefly on Facebook. 

Am I not allowed to talk to anyone except for you? I feel like if that was the case then you or Victor would have corrected me on that and not Cassidy.
I wasn’t messaging Jeannie to lay all my burdens on her (it seemed like Cassidy was under that impression) , we spoke about her gardening and Silas.

I don’t really understand where Cassidy is coming from. If I am instructed not to communicate with anyone in the group then I will obey but I wanted to clarify because what Cassidy said confused me. 

Thank you,

I know you don’t owe me an explanation, and I know you’re busy. So I understand if it takes time to respond. Paul you told me this morning that in order to keep things simple I could not participate in bible readings or the Sabbath chat. I’m not trying to fight you on that, but I don’t understand it. 

I recognize the mistakes that I have made and how I’ve offended many. I want to do what the Lord would have me do. 

I’m not asking this in a mocking way at all, but do I need to prove that before I can participate? I just don’t understand and would like some clarity. Not that you are obligated to give it. 

Could I maybe listen to the recordings? That way I don’t have to be a burden or complicate things? 

Like I said, I’m not trying to fight back I just don’t understand. Thank you.

Good Morning and Good Sabbath! 

I think this week has been the hardest week of my life. But today I finally feel rest and peace. Even though I’m disconnected from the group at this time I know that the Lord is with me, and that is all that matters. The Lord keeps reminding me to take things one step at a time, and not to rush things. I don’t know what the Lord has in store for my marriage, this new child, and for Silas, not knowing scares me. All I know is that His way is the only way. Thank you Lord for rest, for the Sabbath. Thank you for this new child, and for the one you’ve already given us. Thank you for giving me strength to stand up to the Devils that tempt me. The Lord truly is a good God, he is just in all

Subject: Letters – Thursday through Sat (May 26-28)

Hi Maddy, 

You’re confused (Thursday, May 26 letter), not because Cassidy isn’t clear, but because you’re not paying attention to what you’ve been told. And that’s because you’re still trying to force your agenda on him and all of us. 

Cassidy told you to contact us as the conduit to the believers here, so when you talk to us you’re talking to everyone else as well. That isn’t what you want, but you are getting heard by those who need to hear. 

You chose to leave your husband. You have no right to expect a relationship with Cassidy on your terms now. You’re not under his covering any more. Isn’t that obvious? If it’s not obvious, it’s because you’ve been quite independent, impudent and rebellious till this day. You never received the covering of the Lord. 

Not only did you turn your back on Cassidy, you turned your back on the Lord and every one of us. And you didn’t do so in a flash moment of passion; you had hours – more than a day and night to cool off. You were firm in your resolve in what you were doing. And now you think to continue to have your way? No, your fruits tell us, indeed scream out that you don’t give a damn for anyone but yourself. You demand that you have your cake and eat it, too. It seems you’re even convinced you can eat it, vomit it up and have another go at it, in our presence. 

Like the Lord said, “Let there be fruits.” We will obey Him.

But if you’ll now choose the Lord as your head, He will lead you in what is right and you’ll be in harmony with us and what we tell you to do, even if you don’t like it. You’ll accept our instructions and be thankful you’re getting any. You’ll value all that you’ve already seen and heard from us, using it for godly gain instead of casting it aside as rubbish as you’ve done so far, continually chafing and trying to find another way to get your way, which never works for anyone. 

We don’t see you in the Lord’s peace as you now report in your Saturday letter. Not saying you don’t feel some relief from your turmoil, but you’re not in faith, so how can you have His peace? 

How do we know you’re not in faith? Because despite all you tell us about what’s happening there (which things we aren’t questioning), you aren’t obedient in the specific things you’re told to do, as with Cassidy telling you not to contact him but to write to us instead (you contacted him on Sunday). You simply don’t believe. 

To be clear, Maddy, you’ve made your bed, without “fear and trembling” or even hesitation; now you must sleep in it. Given your present insistence on your way, as though you have it coming to you, even if you say you don’t deserve our input, we don’t expect anything but further change of mind as it suits you. 

You say you deserve your present circumstances, so be true to your word and deal with them on your own, as you deliberately, consciously chose, which brought your present circumstances to pass. You rejected our counsel, the Scriptures and our correction. We have no right under God to give you any more.

We all warned, reproved, rebuked and implored you over many weeks and you decided after all that time to do your thing. Can we now trust your “change of heart” or preference after only days? 

Submit to your fruits and don’t expect us to suffer them with you. Wasn’t it more than you should expect us to try to instruct you in the way of life, and now that you’ve said, “To Hell with you,” you expect us to believe you, take another run at it, and even be partakers of the consequences of your rebellion? Does that make sense? Does that prove to us you’ve had a change of heart? We hardly think so, and that goes for all of us.  

Go your way. Prove yourself beyond a doubt and don’t expect reward or our acknowledgement for it. When the Lord judges you’ve had enough of your ways, you can be sure He’ll change things – He’s Ever Faithful and True. Do you believe that? Do you really believe us? Do you have the faith you claim to have? We’ll see, won’t we?

Paul and Victor

Hi Paul, 

I have been thinking about your letter here. You are right, I wasn’t listening to Cassidy or you because it’s not what I wanted to hear. Just like that time Ronnie told me to wait before taking the sun catcher and I took it anyways. 

I definitely have been all of those things that you describe here Paul. I am very grateful for your counsel, I really don’t deserve it. You have given me much good correction and I have trashed it. 

As you have said,we shall see. You don’t want to hear me making promises and I don’t need to be making any either. Repentance and obedience speak much louder. 
Thank you, Lord willing we will talk soon.

Hi Maddy,

We haven’t heard from you for a while or since Cassidy left Helena a few days ago. We’re wondering where you’re at with things now – are you glad he’s come back to you, assuming he went to be with you? Cassidy wasn’t up front with us about his departure. He snuck out of here after giving us the impression he would be staying on and following the Lord as the right thing to do for everyone, you included. 

Now, however, being entirely unstable and driven by his carnal lusts, there’s no telling where Cassidy will end up or what he’ll do next. Terribly tragic. Did he tell you he left the kitchen a mess, just as you did with him? Did he tell you he stole Victor’s guitar and my vacuum cleaner and old laptop? You can’t trust or believe a thief and liar. 

That’s why we’re talking to you, Maddy, instead of Cassidy about some things that need to be settled up. We paid the difference on your car loan, which came to $447.39. You were going to pay that off when you received your tuition grant, which was supposed to arrive the week you left. We haven’t heard from you since, however. What’s happening and what do you intend to do?

If you’re back together again with Cassidy, then we can discuss the things he owes us for. 

And what about the things you left here? What do you want done with them? Not promising what we’ll be able to do, but let us know with as much specificity as needed. 

Also, please send me your forwarding address – there are a couple pieces of mail here for you – a refund check from State Farm on your cancelled car insurance and a ZipCash Toll Bill.

I apologize for not responding until now, Cassidy told me to cut all communication with you. 

You asked if I was glad he came back. At first I was glad he came back, things were going well. But as soon as you told me that he had stolen from you I realized he had been lying to me. I confronted him about the things he took from you, and he was incredibly defensive. He had an attitude about everything like you all owed him something so he was just taking what was rightfully his. 

Since he has been back all that you predicted has come to reality. He has stolen from me, my father, been entirely unfaithful, renounced any belief in the Lord, lied, etc.  
Things are worse now than they ever were before. So the answer to your question is definitely not, I am not happy that he chose to leave. I honestly don’t think he left to be with me though, it was just the most convincing excuse. The night he left before getting on the plane he was already lying, watching porn, and got drunk. 

I have every intention on paying you back for the car that you helped me with. I really appreciate what you did there and I am not going to steal from you. I made a commitment to pay you back and I will do that as soon as I am able. Cassidy has stolen almost everything of value. I am trying to find a job currently, but it is hard with Silas. I apologize for being so distant and not communicating with you all. 

If you still have my things there I do not expect you to release any of them to me until I have payed the 450.00 that I owe you. That is, if you still have it. 

For the mail my address is

Unrighteous Opinions Abound

From: Sarah To: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk Sent: Friday, April 29, 2016 1:03 AM Subject: Correcting wordsHi Paul and Victor,Have you ever received correction with an open heart? In fair warning, your pride will react instantly to any correction or rebuke. You will immediately start thinking of scripture or ways to back your doctrines and reputation. You may react in anger and arrogance, perhaps with snide or rude remarks discounting the messenger/other person, that may include facts and scripture but are of a proud condescending nature. I know that I’m no better than you, and I’ve struggled with pride and fear and control, and all sorts of crap in my past. So please don’t feel the need to push me down to make yourself feel better. Please don’t react that way now. Ask Him to reveal His heart and love for you right now instead. Please don’t read further until you do. Tonight I read on your site, so many quotes of yours of people correcting you, and you’re quoted remarks to them, and they are full of great pride. The correctness of your theology and doctrine do not define who you are, nor does trying to prove that you own the Truth show the value of your worth. Please stop trying to own Truth. Truth, and Wisdom are a person. He is your Father and you are His son, and you need to come to Him, seeking His face, and live dependent in Him in fear and in His love, and as a child in humility. You must not look to the left or the right, or to theology, or to all the ...

Were People Drawn to Christ’s Love?

From: Karie To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, September 05, 2016 9:29 PM Subject: Did people want what Jesus had?You posed this question in one of your articles, "did people want what Jesus had?" And you answered no. Yes they did. They saw the love of the Father radiating from Him. He had thousands of followers that were drawn to this love. The religious spirited were the ones who hated Him. He said that we will be persecuted in His name. My question to you is why are you persecuting other believers? Are we not all brothers and sisters in Christ? We may have different styles of spreading the gospel but the Body needs to be united. If people see Christ within us to the fullest they will be drawn to know Him and our Heavenly Father.
