Subject: Judging a brother…
Dear brothers Paul and Victor,
Judging a brother like you do, as in the case of Austin Sparks, calling the brother of false prophet and even antichrist is something very serious.
I say that because when you read about his life and the testimony he gave to the Lord during his lifetime, it is something that fully confirms his ministry.
His ministry was based on the Word of God and are often deep studies focusing in Christ and in Christ alone.
You should have fear of the Lord, because it may be that the accusations that you usually speak and write about him, God may bring on you judgment in the Court of Christ.
Beware of concerning this type of judgments, especially because the adjectives and nouns that you use about this servant of God are too heavy.

“We are of God. He who knows God hears us. The one who is not of God does not hear us. From this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error” (1 John 4:6 MKJV).
Give us Godly substance and not your mere human judgment.
If you had sent us our writing on Austin-Sparks and asked us what we thought, we would have said it’s Scripturally accurate in spirit and letter, presenting godly understanding and truth throughout. It doesn’t matter that we wrote it – the children of Truth agree with the truth, even if giving the appearance of bias.
Take note that you haven’t refuted the truth we’ve written. All of your arguments are based on perception lacking verification or godly witnesses. This is anti-Christ – replacing His Truth with your opinion.
If you’re our brother in the Lord, Claudio, then you’ll acknowledge what we’re saying is true.

Dear brothers Paul and Victor,
I’ve been observing the list of false prophets performed by you and really brings outrage by the levity with which are placed on this list several names without any concrete basis for the charges.
I’m surprised, as I said earlier with names like: T. Austin Sparks; Andrew Murray; Watchman Nee; Spurgeon and some others who are accused of being false prophets.
To me it’s unbelievable that people who claim to be Christian, participants of the body of Christ, practice severe judgments as if they had been placed by God for this kind of mission, although the creators of Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and founders of other strange cults, popes, and many others, they clearly can be accused, according to the teachings of the Bible, of false prophets.
Our Lord said: “judge not lest ye be judged, because with the same measure that you measure you will be measured”.
The apostle Paul also says: “do not judge before time”.
The apostle James says: who are you to judge your brother, to their Lord he shall fall or stand…
Observing the dogmas of faith that you preach, I was scared that you don’t believe in the divine Trinity.
How can that be? Because the Lord Himself says: “Baptize in the name of the father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. There are three distinct Names of three separate Persons.
The Lord also said: I will send another Comforter. Therefore cannot be Himself but another Person.
This doctrine that you advocate is a strange doctrine and worthy of being rejected.
Another weird thing that you claim is that water baptism is something of the symbolism of the past, while the Lord Himself fulfilled this ritual and even emphasized that we should baptize those who come to believe. He even said: “those who believe and are baptized will be saved”.
Philip baptized the eunuch, Peter baptized Cornelius and the Bible shows that this rite has not ever been rescinded in the Scriptures but always emphasized. How can you undo something that is ordered in the Word of God as orderly. Based on what biblical text? This all sounds very strange. Just you that claim to be righteous and correct in following our Lord´s doctrine and judge many of God’s people.
I think we have to read the word of God (Bible) more accurately, and persists to live it sincerely, otherwise we can fabricate and believe in strange doctrines that are not revealed in the Bible.
Thank you for your attention and I ask God to bless you and give even more light to your ministry.

Claudio, Paul asked you to “Give us Godly substance and not your mere human judgment.”
You have failed to do so. You have continued with YOUR judgment, understanding, and interpretation of the Scriptures, the very thing of which you accuse us of being guilty.
No “concrete basis” for our judgments? We don’t agree. Have you attentively, prayerfully red our papers? It’s highly unlikely, not without your doctrinal blinders and colored glasses. More importantly, can you say God has given you revelation of the matters in question? You know otherwise, don’t you?
“To me it’s unbelievable that people who claim to be Christian, participants of the body of Christ, practice severe judgments as if they had been placed by God for this kind of mission, although the creators of Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and founders of other strange cults, popes, and many others, they clearly can be accused, according to the teachings of the Bible, of false prophets.”
“…as if they had been placed by God for this kind of mission…?” Why does it seem a strange thing to you that such can well be the case? We tell you it is. How do you know otherwise? And what if we are in that place with God? What does that mean for you?
“Observing the dogmas of faith that you preach, I was scared that you don’t believe in the divine Trinity. How can that be? Because the Lord Himself says: ‘Baptize in the name of the father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. There are three distinct Names of three separate Persons.”
Has it not occurred to you that those aren’t names, but titles? What is the Name, or if you like, are, the names of the three?
And didn’t you know that the words in Matthew 28:18-20 aren’t found in the most original manuscripts available? Have you ever noticed that if you were to use that literal formula for water baptism, “Father, Son and Holy Spirit,” that Peter then went on to “disobey” the Lord, teaching and practising otherwise? What Name did Peter and Paul baptize in? Can you tell us?
And where does it say in Scripture that we must believe in the “divine Trinity”? Can you point it out to us? Have you red our papers? Who are you to judge us, Claudio? Read The Asininity of the Trinity , Jesus Christ, Almighty God,
and The Most Glorious of Truths.
You see, Claudio, you have a lot to learn. What you have been learning is error. We point out that error, according to the Scriptures, and you fault us? How so?
“I think we have to read the word of God (Bible) more accurately, and persists to live it sincerely, otherwise we can fabricate and believe in strange doctrines that are not revealed in the Bible.”
Amen and Amen! Consider, will you? We are here by the will of God to address the error by speaking the Truth of God as firmly confirmed in His Holy Scriptures.
There is much more we could address in your letter, but let this suffice for now.

I don’t know how long ago you posted the article on Doug Hamp, but I want to comment. I agree that this man is a false teacher for many reasons, but I disagree with the two reasons you selected to debunk him. The sons of God were angels, just check Job. Also, Enoch is quite clear and elucidating on this, if you believe in Enoch, as I do. Jude referred to Enoch as a prophet. Second Peter bolsters Enoch. The bible is littered with phrases right out of Enoch. Secondly, the reason so many Christians argue about pre or post tribulation rapture, is because there is great evidence for both. Unfortunately, people take one side or the other, when in fact if prophecy is fulfilled there will be two raptures; first for the elect and then for those who will come through fire. The prospect of prophecy being fulfilled doesn’t look good because it was supposed to happen in the generation of Jesus, but it didn’t, so something else might happen. Also, many prophecies of the Old and New Testaments remain unfulfilled, which supports the idea that we just might have a different ending that spelled out in the Bible.

I saw what you had to say about him, False teacher you say. I believe What Norman grub taught from what I've heard so far is the difference between pleasing God in the flesh, and pleasing God in the spirit. God desires sons not religious Pharisees. Remember it's the goodness of God that leads us to repentance but by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil. Not the other way round The high people in society that rejected Jesus were those religious leaders that could not receive Jesus by faith. We need to die to ourselves completely our own ideas our own ways and just believe in the finished work of Christ alone for without faith it's impossible to please God so if you think you can please God in the flesh make sure you keep the whole law with nothing left undone.
