Hi Guys

Interesting page.

Just a question on your eight steps of repentance. What if you committed a sin you weren’t aware of how would you go through all of the 8 steps?  if I have done a sin I am not aware of does that mean I have not completed proper repentance?

Regards

Paul

Paul, it’s not about dotting all the “I’s” and crossing all the “t’s”. It’s all about motive and attitude. If you seek the Lord to do His will, He’ll surely cause you to know all you need to know. He’ll convict you of any sin and give you the gift of repentance to turn from it.

Believe and obey; it’s for your life, His Eternal Life He gives to those who believe on Him. Jesus Christ is Lord.

Paul, Paul Cohen here. You have the cart in front of the horse. Those 8 elements follow the repentance that comes from God. In other words, when those elements are present, we know that God is doing a miraculous work of salvation in the person. And when any of those elements are absent, we know that God isn’t doing the work. 

And, O man, the one judging those who do such things, and practice them, do you think this, that you shall escape the judgment of God? Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, and the forbearance and long-suffering, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?” (Romans 2:3-4 MKJV)

“When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, ‘Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life!’” 

(Acts 11:18 WEB)

"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).

Doesn't the doctrine state that?” No, it doesn’t, Rogena.  Malachi 3:16-18 ESV (16)  Then those who feared the LORD spoke with one another. 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. (17)  “They shall be Mine, says the LORD of hosts, in the day when I make up My treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. (18)  Then once more you shall see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. Do you really believe God would have His children undiscerning and subjected to the many false prophets and wolves He warned would come in the latter days?  We recently heard that Kirk Cameron has a movie promoting Christmas. Are you undiscerning in this matter - That Devilish Spirit of Christmas? He also celebrates Hallow...
Praying for Your Spouse to Return
From: Sylvia To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, April 06, 2016 9:10 PM Subject: Worth Praying For my husband to be back? Greetings,  Thank you so much for the wisdom shared in your article(are all marriages of God?); I have indeed been blessed by it. I met my husband as an illegal immigrant in the UK and after helping him secure his stay in the country, now living with another woman, with whom he has an 8-month old baby. My wish before I met him was to get married before having children. I was robbed of this privilege in helping him to secure his stay as we were advised that his spousal visa application would be more successful if he shows he has a family in the UK. I regret so much that I disappointed God and myself but I have asked for forgiveness and I know He has indeed forgiven me. The application was indeed a success but it has turned out he only came into my life for what he could could gain from me.  Despite attempts to get him to do what is right, he has left me to raise our two daughters(two and five years of age) on my own. He shows no care for them and I. He really has been wicked towards the children and I. I'm still praying for God to change his heart but sometimes, I feel I am praying in vain as doubt it is not right to pray for him to be back, though that is the only decision that gives me peace!  Please advise me. I just want to live by His will, not mine!  I have shortened my story in order to be as concise as possible, please ...

After reading what you think of him and his ministry, and browsing through your website a bit, I have to say I'm confused.  Let me ask y'all some questions in hopes to get a response: 1st- What is your stance on spiritual gifting? 2nd-Would you call yourself religious scholars? If so why? 3rd- What is the cross and why do you hit the Gospel of the Cross so much instead the Gospel of Jesus? 4th- Why do you choose intellect and religion over relationship? 5th- Why do you preach against the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit the God head 3 in 1? 6th- Where do you get your doctrine from? 7th-Why do you twist words of others and use scripture out of context to prove a point? 8th- Why respond to things in hate (meaning sarcasm and mockery) and judgement? Thanks Guys and I hope to hear from y'all soon. May God Smile upon you today.
