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).

Found your site when I was searching for Dan Sheridan. He was considered among false teachers along with Martin Sheridan. My spiritual journey started when I about 28 or so. I was saved and baptized in a Baptist Church. So started at Baptist, migrated to charismatic/pentecostal where I met my husband. Left church for a while when I discovered Martin Zender and his teachings that we are under Grace and not Law. Paul was sent to preach to the uncircumcised and not to the circumcised (the Jews). Return back to church for my husband but my heart and mind is not there. Now doing Bible study with Dan Sheridan via his website. Still working on knowing/learning God's truths. Spent about 4 hours on your website reading through many "articles" (for lack of better word). It seems that Mr Victor sees that he has true grasp of God's Word as do Dan, Martin and others. It's ...

Humans get into trouble trying to do what other men say God wants. Reasonable people have to decide for themselves what is in their best interests. From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: David Sent: Tuesday, May 17, 2016 6:56 AM Subject: Re: Conversations With God David, you’re pretty confused for not being hooked up to a major religion. But whether in a religion or not, every person deciding for themselves what is best has been an unmitigated disaster, both personally and for the world. The evidence is in - there’s no question about it to any reasonable mind. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the central fact of your existence. To live in denial of this is to live in unreality. In the unreality of your mind coupled with “free will,” an illusion you think to possess, you’ve been given to make certain decisions based on what you think is in your best interests in order to find out how wrong you are and that despite your wrongness, God (the Lord Jesus Christ) rules in every detail of your life doing what is right and good. The time will come when you want to know what Jesus Christ has to say and you’ll be very thankful for the gift of believing and obeying Him. Paul and Victor

Olsen Subject: Joseph Prince I have been watching Joseph Prince for the last 8 months and I have never seen or heard him preach in the manner you describe on your website. He preaches the Grace, Love and Glory of Jesus Christ. I am 80 yrs. old and have been a Christian for 72 yrs. I have attended thousands of church services and have watched and heard thousands of sermons and I whole heartily disagree with you personal assessment of Joseph Prince. May God help your soul. From: Victor Hafichuk Date: Wed, Apr 7, 2021 at 7:32 PM Subject: Joseph Prince To: B. Olsen Joseph Prince preaches another Jesus, a counterfeit one. And you are an old fool being deceived. You fell to false conversion in your youth by strong delusion because you didn’t have a love of the Truth. Only a hoary head found in righteousness isone of glory.Your years are a mark of shame and not of vindication. \/ From: B.

Surely, you know that by having a website such as yours, that not everyone who reads it is going to agree with you. Since you, obviously, don't deal well with anyone who disagrees with you, perhaps you should remove the 'Contact' link from your website. I wrote you a respectful letter and your reply was vile and full of 'name calling'...
