Hi Paul,

I found your website when I was on google and I type in repentance. I’m searching ( Jesus Christ ) His truth.

Mag

Hi Paul,

I find myself crying out to The Lord most of the time. I need Him. But do not know the word to speak but huge burden in my heart crying out to Him daily. What’s happening to me? I desire to know my Lord, my Savior and hear from Him. I don’t share this to the people at my church cos they would just tell me that I already have Him. Than why am I having such burden crying out to the Lord all the time. Can you please enlighten or encourage me though the Holy Spirit.

I am willing to accept any rebuke or correction as long as it is from The lord.

Love,

Mag

Hi Mag,

If you realize you don’t know the Lord and desperately want to, isn’t that a wonderful thing? It could only happen if God is drawing you to Himself through Christ, as He said: 

“No one can come to Me unless the Father Who has sent Me draw him, and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44 MKJV). 

Now consider this: You say you don’t share your search for the Lord with the people at your church, “cos they would just tell me that I already have Him.” If you know you don’t have the Lord and they don’t realize it, this can only be because they don’t have the Lord, too, and don’t care to. That’s what makes them such enemies of those seeking Him. As Jesus also said:

“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against men. For you neither go in, nor do you allow those entering to go in” (Matthew 23:13 MKJV).

Aren’t you admitting that your religious companions would stop you from entering in? Perhaps you’re seeing this already, and counting the cost. It’s a serious matter, which we write about in The Case for Coming Out. You can’t walk with the Lord and stay with those who oppose Him in ignorance and unbelief. 

I hope you find these things encouraging, Mag, because if you embrace the truth with your whole being, it will set you free. The Lord is good to His every Word – you can place your life on it, and must. 

After you signed up for the Forum, Ronnie Tanner set you up your account to have access to the Private section, where you can see the instructions for joining us at the Sabbath meeting you. You can also hear about our Bible readings/telephone conference calls there, which you’re welcome to come to as well. Do you have any questions about these things? 

Let us know, and if there’s anything else we can help you with in finding your way. 

Paul

Repentance, Placing the Cart in Front of the Horse
English - Spanish From: Paul To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, May 02, 2016 5:00 AM Subject: 8 Repentance Steps 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 From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Paul Sent: Sunday, May 08, 2016 5:09 PM Subject: Re: 8 Repentance Steps 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. Victor 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 ...
Meandering Without the Shepherd
From: Jim To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, December 20, 2015 8:39 PM Subject: On Church Attendance I came across your website this evening and I am intrigued.  I haven’t read all that I want to read as yet, but, I will meander through it.  I read your article regarding salvation.  I scanned the “false doctrines” articles.  Here’s my question.  I do not attend church regularly.  It is in my heart to do that so as to not avoid gathering with other like minded believers.  Unfortunately every church in my area either teaches eternal torment for the unbelieving or the church is liberal and accepts just about anything as doctrine.  I’m not looking for advice, but I would like your opinion.  Thank you, Jim  From: Victor Hafichuk To: Jim Sent: Friday, January 01, 2016 1:58 PM Subject: Re: On Church Attendance Hi Jim,  Do sheep select their own pastures, food, and companions, or do their shepherds guide and manage them? If Jesus Christ is your Shepherd, then you can be certain He is leading you where you need to be, step by step, everything in its place and time. “God sets the solitary in families: He brings out those which are bound with chains…”  But if you’re doing your own thing in His Name, then “the rebellious dwell in a dry land” (Psalms 68:6 KJV). Even though that land is populated by many and apparently prosperous.  “Righteous are You, O LORD, when I complain to You; yet I would plead my case before You. Why does the way of the wi...
Confusion comes from the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.
From: Patrick To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, October 23, 2016 2:46 PM Subject: Rich man & Lazarus parable. I saw your article and would be interested in defending the placement of this parable in the AV.  I agree with many of your observations; however, I believe one more piece of evidence could put you on the road to seeing the "big picture" of this parable in why it gives these outlandish details....respectfully yours, Patrick From: Paul Cohen To: Patrick Sent: Sunday, October 23, 2016 9:08 PM Subject: RE: Rich man & Lazarus parable. We'd be interested in hearing your argument for the parable, Patrick.  Paul From: Patrick To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 9:37 AM Subject: Re: Rich man & Lazarus parable. Hi Paul, Delighted to get your response.  I pray these following insights will help you in your quest to make sense of this parable, and to find greater joy in understanding truths set forth in scripture. First thing that comes to my mind is "big picture" gleaned from considering the context and setting of the parable.  It is part of a sequence of parables that spring forth from the narrative of chapter 15, verse 1:  "Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to HIm...."this man receives sinners and eats with them".  Jesus then sets forth a string of parables, all of which evolve around the theme of the worth of a soul, and God's great love for all men.  Chapter sixteen, beginning with the parable...
