Subject: Question on 2nd Commandment
Hi Paul and Victor,
I have been perusing your site- I found it while on a search to confirm what I was feeling about nativities and thank you for confirming that :).
I have been thinking about all of this a lot. Having been raised Catholic but converting to Protestant when I was sixteen I still have many “traditions” that need to be undone.
My current question is this- I have many children’s bibles for my 2 kids. I am finding all of them have drawings (cartoonish ones) of Jesus when the story mentions Jesus. One called “Jesus Calling” (given my my brother’s family) even has a section after the story where “Jesus” talks about what was just read. I find that to be an abomination and have been torn on getting rid of it or marking through that section with a permanent marker because I think it does a good job telling the stories on a level the kids can understand (mine are 3 and 1). What are your thoughts? My other question is probably obvious. Are the depictions of Jesus in the children’s bibles graven images? If so how do I go about teaching the stories from the bible in a way they can understand- should I just use mine and then try my best to explain what it is saying in terms they understand?
Thank you in advance!!

Have you red Religious Images, Icons, and Likenesses? Why expose your children to blasphemous material – toxic unreality? You’re on the right track here:
“How do I go about teaching the stories from the bible in a way they can understand- should I just use mine and then try my best to explain what it is saying in terms they understand?”
Of course, your “best” will fall short or be in error, as you mention about needing to unlearn the lies of Catholicism AND Protestantism. If you’re walking the path of truth with the Lord Jesus Christ, that will certainly happen. That’s what we’re here to help you do. Keep reading our site, Sara, and let us know how things go.

Thank you so much for your response!!! I have read that page and found it to be congruent with what I had been feeling (from the Holy Spirit). It is so crazy thinking a lot I have grown up knowing as “truth” really isn’t. Kind of earth shattering but that’s what Jesus came to do. I have also told my three year old the truth about Santa because I was feeling convicted about that. When I told my family my mom was supportive but my dad didn’t agree with me. I am already dreading my in laws’ response (not that it would change me, just that I don’t like conflict with them because they tend to adopt an “I’m right and you’re wrong” attitude). I’m feeling Matthew 10:35 a lot lately as I challenge things I have learned and start unlearning them as I discover the truth. I thank you for your wonderful website. I have shared it with my husband and he has been reading on his own (a good sign that he is interested). I am so grateful to have the support you are offering. And of course grateful to have “woken up” at the ripe old age of 35 so I can help my kids know the truth too. Thank you again!!!

Good to hear, Sara. The Lord has given you light – keep walking in it and you will see everything working for good.
“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7 MKJV).

However; that’s not the purpose of this email. You answered someone’s question on ‘who then can be saved’. If I read your reply correctly, you indicated in so many words that all are eventually saved. In another post I read where you replied to someone’s inquiry that hell is not a literal place or it is kind of a temporary holding cell. (I may have that one wrong, I read a bunch of stuff in one sitting). My purpose here and now is to then ask you to explain Matthew 13:37-42. Another thing I might add is: how is it that you alone have the whole council of God and the tens of thousands of others down through the centuries are all liars? Of the six hundred billion people in the world, God chose only you to receive the Spirit of Truth? If God is love; your condemnation of all that pose legitimate questions to you certainly doesn’t reflect any of that love. What happened to “love your enemies and pray for those that persecute you.” If I sound condemning I ask for your forgiveness.

From: Orion To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, May 17, 2016 9:01 PM Subject: Friends Friends, I do not wish to embark on an empty quest of conflict between ideologies. I simply wish to hear y'all's reasoning for "exposing false teachers" such as Clayton Jennings. I'm a 19 year old kid who is on a journey to spread the word of God and the love that Jesus Christ tells us to spread. My beliefs may be premature, but I ask that you respect my stance as I will respect yours. From: Victor Hafichuk To: Orion Sent: Sunday, May 22, 2016 6:50 AM Subject: Re: Friends Orion, someone asked us about Clayton Jennings and we told them (and him) the truth about his presumed ministry. “These are the things that you shall do: speak every man the truth with his neighbor. Execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates” (Zechariah 8:16 WEB). It’s that simple. The Lord Jesus Christ has given us His light to shine in darkness. As the apostle Paul wrote about those whom the Lord appoints to ministry: “He must hold firm to the trustworthy Word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it” (Titus 1:9 ESV). Jude also informs us of the wonderful Day that has arrived: “It was also about these that Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, ‘Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodline...

I feel it is all an excuse because she wants out of her marriage to a prisoner and come up with the story that she discovered she was in adultery and is not getting a divorce. she did a whole show on it and I pointed out the scriptures where what she was saying was not true. then I got over it and sent her a donation (because I had been supping her for a few years and she refunded it saying that she preferred I keep my donation. But I will add that she did not tally up all I had given her in the last 2 years and refund that). Anyway. since then her prophecies are just creepy saying people will see demons and creatures. she has made a prophecy and made a youtube and spreading making prophecies about the election so pretty soon she will be proved the be the false prophet she is.

Consider that you fell for this false prophetess, Lomax, whom we exposed without ever having experienced any of her shenanigans firsthand. That’s because the Lord is with us, and not because we have any special understanding ...
