To: The Path of Truth
I believe I am on a wrong path. I disobeyed the Lord for 25 yrs in that time He wanted me to preach the gospel in Jamaica publicly. I feel like I have been cut of from Him because He told me not to have phone or oral sex with my wife and I did. Since doing so I have been having a lot of blasphemous thoughts and can’t seem to pray or read the word of God. I think about suicide a lot and most times I am sad. If you can talk my # is XXX-XXX-XXXX.
There is more to my situation I really need help….I don’t want to go to hell.

You needn’t worry about going to hell – you are already in hell. Hell is the absence of light and fellowship with God in the truth. With Him there is hope, but in hell there is no hope, which is what you describe in your letter.
You didn’t let the Lord down by not preaching the Gospel in Jamaica. He wasn’t putting that burden on you – you didn’t even know the true Gospel. You just violated your own religious conviction and conscience. You can forget about it. You’ve been walking in your own righteousness and power, not by faith. This too describes hell.
If you were walking by faith, you’d have repented of the phone and oral sex and you would have had the Lord’s forgiveness, not that there wouldn’t have been repercussions. Nevertheless, you would have peace on a renewed walk of faith and you wouldn’t be thinking of killing yourself (On the Question of Suicide).

Soak in the truth. You need to hear and believe the Word of God. In Him alone is hope, which comes with real repentance and faith.
Enjoy adversity? Whoever heard of such a thing? What am I, a masochist? While being troubled about some matters that were not going as I would like them to go, I mentioned it to Lois. As always, the answer was, “Give thanks.” I said, “Yes.” I headed to the lawn to do some work and gave thanks, but then I received something more. Not only was it needful and fitting that I should give thanks for this, as with everything, I should enjoy what is happening.
I would like to know how you approach the Great Commission? Should believers be out on the streets witnessing nonstop like some teach or...?
Jesus Christ is the undisputed Shepherd for those who believe, Who cares for and leads His sheep. He sends shepherds in His Name for this purpose, to feed His sheep, as He specifically said and did with Peter. Is this fact not what the pope of Rome uses to claim his legitimacy and authority? But false claims such as his do not dispel what is authentic and needful. There are those who are sent by God (not ordained of men), who serve Him in leading others in the way. Since His way means life, submission is critical to the working out of salvation for those to whom He sends His servants.
