Hello,  I have been reading about your article on being saved…I was saved many years ago but i found it has taken several years to really grasp this…many mistakes but you are right about being accepted by him…God has picked me up and put me back on my feet many times…never have given up on me and I have grown in my love for him over the years…He is truly amazing!  I would like to know how you approach the Great Commission? Should believers be out on the streets witnessing nonstop like some teach or? Thank you, TS

Tracey, Jesus directed “The Great Commission,” so-called, to His chosen apostles:

“Afterward He appeared to the Eleven as they reclined. And He reproached their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. And He said to them, Go into all the world, proclaim the Gospel to all the creation” (Mark 16:14-15 MKJV).

Anyone taking these words as a personal commandment to go out witnessing on the streets “nonstop” is being presumptuous.   

“And how shall they preach unless they are sent?” (Romans 10:15 MKJV)

“Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles?” (1 Corinthians 12:29 ESV)

Being sent as an apostle or minister of Christ isn’t something a person can assume by reading the Scriptures. They must be separated by the Lord for the specific task He has called them to:

“While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them’” (Acts 13:2 ESV).

Men take the Lord’s Name upon themselves and do whatever they want or think is right whenever they choose, but the Lord puts His Name upon those whom He chooses and they do whatever He wills in His timing. Those who are His and take up the cross will know the difference between what is of man and what is of God.

Let us know if this helps, Tracey. (We are writing to the wife of Robert? We can only guess by the signature. Another thing to consider is that the Lord doesn’t assign women to ministries such as apostles and evangelists.)

False Ways of the Religious

Today's religious' idea of worship is nothing more than the carnal man's vain attempt to produce godliness as an exercise of his own thinking will and ways. "These things indeed have a reputation of wisdom in self-imposed worship and humility…" (Colossians 2:23 MKJV)

Leaving the Catholic Church for Reality

From: Daisy To: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Friday, March 04, 2016 6:43 PM Subject: TestimonyHello Victor,My name is Daisy from Los Angeles Ca. I would like to thank you for sharing your testimony. I just left the Catholic Church and I am getting a lot of grief from friends, family and church. I have 2 children that we're getting ready to do their first communion in May. After 2 years of going to catechism class, I took them out a month ago. I have been dealing with lots of guilt for doing that but in my heart I know that I am doing the right thing. I am now attending a Christian apostolic church. I am having a hard time reading the bible and I pray that I will someday understand it. Again I thank you for sharing your testimony. It really helped me and gave me hope.God bless!! Daisy=From: Victor Hafichuk To: Daisy Sent: Saturday, March 05, 2016 10:18 AM Subject: FW: TestimonyGood to hear from you, Daisy! The Lord is our Present Help in Need - always. He’s Faithful and True - always. He won’t let you down when you set your heart on and trust in Him.You have no cause whatsoever before God, the saints, prophets and angels to feel guilty about pulling out of the Catholic scene. Truly, God’s counsel by the Scriptures are clear that we need to come out of false religion, out of Babylon. The Catholic Church is about as false a representation of Jesus Christ as it gets. If you know to come out and don’t do it, that’s when shame and guilt are justified and de...

Wrong Opinions from a Wrong Heart

From: Douglas To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, September 09, 2016 1:36 PM Subject: Dan mohlerHi Paul! My name is Douglas. And recently I read your correspondence with a lady named Karen concerning Todd white and Dan mohler. And I have a few things to say in response to what I read? First I want to say a bit about myself? I became a born again child of God in 1985. And over the years since off and on I have spent countless hours in the scriptures. And countless times when I would spend time in the scriptures (gods word) I would delve exhaustingly deep into the scriptures. I would go into Greek and Hebrew and word definitions and tenses etc. And even many times involve church history and archaeological aspects? That's how I study gods word. Now I'm not a pastor or ministry leader. I have been asked at times if I attended seminary though because of my knowledge of Scripture? But no I didn't. It's that throughout my Christian walk with the Lord God inspires me to study his word exhaustingly like that. And also I talk with God (pray) ad I study his word. I'm not hypeing me up at all? It's the Lord (him) who leads me to do as I do! And I just respond. It's about him!!!!! So with all of that said. You see I discovered Dan Kohler and todd white like 4 years ago. I seen them each preach/teach live once. And concerning Todd white? There are a few aspects of things he said or taught that I questioned? Which I wont discuss here because it could be a really long emai...
