Sir, there is a difference between a false teacher, and a True minister who makes a minor error in doctrine.

I just randomly came across your site and thought it was legitimate because I saw the name of truly false, demonic teachers who are propagating damnable doctrines in the world today.

But I was suddenly very disappointed when I saw the names of many true Ministers of the gospel, you called false

Charles Stanley and John MacArthur? Really? That made me laugh, you must either be really oppressed and deceived by the devil or probably not saved at all

John MacArthur is probably one of the most faithful Ministers of the gospel in our Churches today; and you dare ignore all his biblically sound teachings and faithfulness to the word of GOD to concentrate on his specific interpretation of Paul’s thorn in the flesh.

My friend, I exhort you to examine yourself and change your path. You are rather insulting the majesty of our LORD by being deceived to fight against the true false teachers who have crept into our Churches (Jude 4), and with self-righteous, poor discernment calling GOD’S True Ministers false

I advice you to take your website down and seek the LORD to learn to walk in discernment to HIS Light. 

Learn to test the fruit of the Spirit in a very loving and submissive heart (1John 4:1)

Remain Blessed

So murder and blasphemy are “minor errors in doctrine,” Toche? Or did you miss this part in the MacArthur writing? 

However, I also see MacArthur suffering the traits of his mentor. John MacArthur believes John Calvin’s doctrine (read The Fruit of Cain Multiplied: The Murderer John Calvin). MacArthur and Calvin believe God deliberately predestined multitudes, likely the vast majority of mankind, to eternal torment.

Yes, you heard that right. They believe that before God even created man, He planned to torment souls forever and ever. They would have no choice in the matter. They would live out their terms on earth and go to everlasting torment, in which they would suffer constant unspeakable horrors and never be destroyed, redeemed, or put out of their intense misery.

Others, far less in number, the chosen few, God would select to live with Him in bliss for all eternity. These have no choice, either. No matter how wicked and ungodly their lives might be on earth, their destiny was certain.

John MacArthur believes in the doctrine of a liar and murderer, a venerated blasphemer called a “reformer” and “great theologian.” MacArthur trusts in the Scripture interpretations and doctrines of a man who personally, with great relish, condemned true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ to slow, agonizing death at the burning stake of green faggots, simply because they believed the truth and tried to reason with Calvin about his error (Servetus was one such martyr). Being true believers, these saints didn’t persecute Calvin, but he, a certain devil, persecuted them (read The Persecutors and Persecuted). That fact in itself tells the good from the evil.

John Calvin was demonic. Those who believe and follow him do so only because they themselves don’t have the Spirit of God. They could only believe such horrific lies if deceived. So how shall John MacArthur understand the Scriptures and the heart and spirit of our beloved brother in Christ, the apostle Paul? There’s no way.

Or how about teaching people that there’s no relief from sin in this life? Is that minor, too, or did you miss this part as well? 

I could go through the remainder of MacArthur’s sermon we’ve discussed and point out so much more error, but know I’ve said enough for those with a heart of truth and some understanding and discernment. Need I say more? If so, let me know, and Lord willing, we’ll see what we can do for you.

I’ve also examined MacArthur’s Doctrinal Statement and could point out so much more claptrap – blatant lies that altogether contradict the Scriptures he presumes to preach. For example, it is stated, concerning sanctification:

In this respect, we teach that every saved person is involved in a daily conflict—the new creation in Christ doing battle against the flesh—but adequate provision is made for victory through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. The struggle nevertheless stays with the believer all through this earthly life and is never completely ended. All claims to the eradication of sin in this life are unscriptural. Eradication of sin is not possible, but the Holy Spirit does provide for victory over sin (Galatians 5:16 25; Ephesians 4:22 24; Philippians 3:12; Colossians 3:9 10; 1 Peter 1:14 16; 1 John 3:5 9).

So the Holy Spirit leads us into all truth (John 16:13), Jesus says, “Go and sin no more,” and, “Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect,” but you can’t do as He says? The apostle John says:

1 John 3:8-10 MKJV

(8) He who practices sin is of the Devil, for the Devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was revealed, that He might undo the works of the Devil.
(9) Everyone who has been born of God does not commit sin, because His seed remains in him, and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.
(10) In this the children of God are revealed, and the children of the Devil: everyone not practicing righteousness is not of God, also he who does not love his brother.

MacArthur even gives verse nine as a defense of his doctrine. The problem is there is no acknowledgment of the truth of God’s perfect work and complete deliverance from the power of sin in this world. It is unbelief. His speech tells us he doesn’t understand the things of the Spirit.

Yes, Christians can sin, but let’s understand better and give true hope for those seeking to be free of sin. Read Diabolical Doctrine: It’s Impossible Not to Sin and Do Christians Sin?

While Christian John says there’s no place for sinning, with His wonderful grace granted to deliver from all sin, Calvin John and MacArthur John say otherwise. Whom shall you believe, God or men? The apostle Paul, a man the two lesser Johns can’t understand with their carnal minds, gives the answer:

“Let it not be! But let God be true, and every man a liar; as it is written, ‘That You might be justified in Your sayings, and will overcome when You are judged’” (Romans 3:4 MKJV).

MacArthur says, “Eradication of sin is not possible, but the Holy Spirit does provide for victory over sin.” What kind of victory is that? He says that sin is overcome when we don’t sin, but sin still prevails over us? Calvinists mislead people with diabolical doctrines.

God has shown us the way He has made for us and that is to be without sin by the power of His life, even as He was the Pattern Son on earth. Will He, then, lead us to an “almost there” state in this world and not be the Omega of our salvation? Says who? Says those who have never known the Lord, that’s who. They’ve never known the right way, the impossible way, which only God can make known and apply to those He calls and chooses and makes faithful. Amen!

John MacArthur is yet another false teacher, a Calvinist disciple, who is impressive and quite capable of deceiving many simple and unstable souls. Our part is to shine the light and warn all of prevailing error, illuminating their path and steering them clear of the pitfalls in their spiritual pilgrimage.

If these things are minor to you, they’re not to our God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. So go you way with your gods and false prophets, proud mocker.

As you condescendingly advise us, “Learn to test the fruit of the Spirit in a very loving and submissive heart (1John 4:1),” have YOU learned to do so? Really?

A Joseph Hedgecock Follower Defends Selling the Gospel
Subject: Servants of the Lord ministries Date: 11/28/2015 7:02 am From: Bert To: The Path of Truth 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.

Righteousness, The Expression of Faith
From: Frank To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, October 09, 2016 12:54 AM I would like to know more about being found right in the eyes of God.  And also about God calling me rather than me saying that I'll come to God.  I will admit I'm a sinner probably one of the worst but I do believe that God has allowed me to  come across your site on the Internet not by accident but by his purpose. I have issues with lust, porn, drugs, and no matter how hard I try I can not overcome in my own strength.  From: Frank To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, October 09, 2016 1:01 AM Subject: I would like to know more About being made right in the eyes of God.

Take advantage of what the Lord Jesus Christ has made available to you in order to turn from your sins and call on His Name in Truth. Soak in the Word of God on our site, which builds faith in Christ, and the expression of this faith is the way of becoming right in His sight. “For what does the Scripture say? ‘Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness’” (Romans 4:3 MKJV).

Cree en El SEñor O Cree en Las Mentiras
English - Spanish De: Court Para: The Path of Truth Enviado: Martes, 5 de Abril, 2016 10:08 AM Asunto: Pregunta Yo estaba leyendo un artículo que escribiste acerca de que John Piper es un falso maestro y yo tenía una pregunta al respeto. Antes de hacer la pregunta, me gustaría dejar claro que estoy familiarizado con Piper, pero no conozco completamente su doctrina. Yo solo he visto algunos videos cortos de él en YouTube. Sin embargo, tu crítica de él como un falso maestro gira en torno al hecho de que él predica sobre un lugar de castigo eterno para los no creyentes (el infierno), como puedes leer en tus propios escritos:  Una de las más grandes y peores mentiras contadas por el cristianismo artificial, una a la que John Piper se suscribe y enseña, es que hay un lugar de tormento y castigo interminable para los pecadores. Los hombres piensan que esta doctrina se encuentra en la Biblia, pero aunque es algo que el hombre carnal le desearía a otros, definitivamente no es algo que Dios haya dicho o que alguna vez haya pasado por Su mente. Él hizo la creación como un acto de Su amor. Él amó tanto al mundo que dio a Su Hijo unigénito por él. Nosotros somos de Él, comprados y pagados con Su sangre.  Me preguntaba de dónde sacaste la idea de que no existe el infierno, basado en el hecho de que hay numerosos versículos en la Biblia, algunos incluso dichos por Jesús, quien tú crees que es Dios, como yo también, sobre la existencia de un lugar de castigo eterno para las p...
