Why We Judge Others

I recently came upon your online site. Ive never came upon a minister whom my beliefs match up to as much as they do your beliefs. Though i am curious about one aspect of your website: you blatantly take upon yourself to judge and be very critical of other people-it seems mostly other pastors from what ive read so far-and they in turn seem to judge and be very critical of you as well. As if you people are concerned in proving each other wrong and that each of you teach the “true” interpretation of Christ. 

Isn’t whomever is teaching the true Christ be able to stand alone without injecting hatred? My question Victor is this: why are you so concerned with trying to prove-through scripture-that all the other pastors are scumbags and only you are right about the gospel? Aren’t we supposed to Love our enemys?-given that light and love are the only things to extinguish hate and darkness? 

If a man truly has the spirit of Christ then wont they themselves be able to discern the darkness and see false teachers for themselves or are you the only man who has the spirit of christ?  

Im not sure you will even read this email-i was excited when i came upon your website Victor-but my concern is that although you seem to be interpreting Christ in the same manner as myself you also seem to be allowing hate to unnecessarily creep into your teachings as well. I do not intend to judge you Victor so i hope you dont think that way. Again-i was thrilled to come upon your wisdom in Christ. Take care and God be with you Victor!

Subject: I apologise


I sent you the below message a few days ago and i just now realised i was being judgemental of you and for that i sincerely apologise.  I am a sinner in this world as we all are and i really dislike when i judge people. You have a ministry that aligns to my beliefs unlike any other i have encountered before and your words ring true. And although i wonder why ministers need to always tear each other down, trying to prove that theirs is the only “true interpretation” it isnt my lot in life to question why any ministers to do as they do because then i would be treading upon another mans work in Christ. And you my friend  have diligently worked! I saw your youtube videos and you also have a lovely voice and talent for writing. Anyway Victor-i hope i didnt offend you by questioning why you and the other ministers seem to quarrel so much even though i truly wish everybody in this world could all love their neighbors as themselves it would be hypocritical for me to point that out to anybody given that i am unable to do so myself.  Life is truly this simple: God is Love.

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Ephesians 5:11 MKJV).

“Those who sin, rebuke before all, so that the rest also may fear” (1 Timothy 5:20 MKJV).

“Preach the Word, be instant in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine” (2 Timothy 4:2 MKJV).

“Speak these things, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you” (Titus 2:15 MKJV).

“And Enoch, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied to these, saying, Behold, the Lord came with myriads of His saints, to do judgment against all, and to rebuke all the ungodly of them concerning all their ungodly works which they ungodly did, and concerning all the hard things ungodly sinners spoke against Him” (Jude 1:14-15 MKJV).

Hi Rick,

It seems you’re being decent about your criticism of me so there is that to say about it, for better or worse, whether a politically correct or earnest attempt at godly civility with the consideration you may be wrong. 

Believe it or not, one of my weaknesses, if one may call it that, is to give people benefit of doubt and credit where they are due, no matter who it may be, faithful friend or inveterate, implacable foe. More on that in a few minutes to test your love.

Certainly, no hatred here for persons, Rick, but equally as certainly, no doubt we transmit God’s hatred for evil. Read Matthew 23 and you’ll find the Lord expressing perfect hatred for evildoing. Nor is that an isolated passage in testimony or principle. Read Does God Speak Only Gentle Words?.

An obvious problem is that what you read in our response to others is predominantly to our enemies, to wolves in sheep’s clothing, those who deceive the general believing and unbelieving public into thinking our gainsayers and judges are true Christians. So, it could well appear we are full of hate, which isn’t the case at all. And I now defend myself for your sake and not mine, with the hope the Lord opens your eyes and His perspective catches hold of you so that you might have life abundantly.

You’re right when you say, “Love is all that matters!” Do you love your enemies, Rick? How far do you go with that love? Do you, for instance, love our greatest foe, the Devil? Do you? Does God? We do, and that’s because God loves Him, contrary to prevailing attitudes of orthodox Christianity. Read: Guess Who Appreciates Satan

Did you know that if there’s no hope for Satan, there’s none for you? So the Scriptures testify? Read The Origin and Identity of Satan. You’ll be surprised to discover that contempt for Satan is self-hatred.

Perhaps I’ve given you a different sort of day today, Rick? The Lord’s will and none other be done. Amen.


Richard, Paul here. We received your second letter and apology after Victor wrote the above reply, but saw no need to amend his reply as you’ll see that no offence was taken. Instead, the Lord has provided for your need.

Yes, Richard, I did read it. Did you not read Paul’s note at the end of my letter? Not a problem at this end. How about for you?

Calling Disease the Savior
From: Jeannie To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, March 25, 2016 7:04 PM Subject: Answer to a reply This is in reply to do Christians die from terrible diseases?  Yes they can die of terrible diseases because we do live in a fallen world full of sin.   Why does God allow these diseases?  I do not know but I do know that Christians who die of diseases appear to have grown even closer to God through faith.  Much closer than one who hasn't had a disease.  If a disease allows one to grow in faith and prepare them to make the Kingdom of God, then so be it.  Isn't it better to live a short life with a disease here on Earth to bring one closer to God to enter eternal heaven? Be careful how you answer for God.  There are lots of children who die of cancer.  Even babies and this is what God says about that. Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14 2Co 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

A Blasphemous Hit-and-Run Judgment
From: Andrew To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, October 30, 2016 3:44 PM Subject: Hi....... Hi, I stumbled across your website and felt obliged to mention that you are way off here. I'm sure you get lots of these so Ill keep it brief. So little of what you say is edifying and or helpful.  You rightly point out some serious error but in the end, your mission is totally undermined by the fact you have vilified self-confessed, fallen human beings who are in fact saints by the blood of Jesus. What will Jesus say about you guys on the day of judgement?  I even asked myself, do these guys really believe these things?  Or are they just trying to make as many enemies as possible?  I would even suggest Schizophrenia may be a possibility. I don't expect or want a reply from you, I couldn't leave without saying goodbye and letting you know that I wont be coming back.  I got my Bible, rich prayer life and a broken, justified and sanctified church family.  It is tough at times yeah, but our role here on earth is not to point out where the darkness is (that happens all by itself), it is simply to seek first the Kingdom of God.  Blessings Andrew Church Staff - Merland Rise Church Tel: X XXX XXX XXXX Mobile: X XXX XXX XXXX Basis of Faith Merland Rise Church is committed to these truths of historic, biblical Christianity: 1.

The Harlot Church Scorns the True Church
From: Jacqueline To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, September 15, 2016 8:00 AM While I read this page on what you want people to know about salvation I thought there is nothing mentioned on the Holy Spirits power working through us to Glorify the Father(Jesus). I dont know all about these people you condemn but I do know that God is our Judge and to Judge not less you be Judged. My main concern here with this site is that like many who reject the Holy spirits move are in danger of the unpardonable sin of rejecting the Holy Spirit.. Woe to them who religiously walk with head knowlegde but reject the Holy Spirit!! Baptist and many churches who play churchianity are just as false because they speak doctrins of demons in the sense of their flesh without the Holy Spirit intertwined. We must walk with a balance of both constantly  by faith and thus is the true doctrine of our Lord Jesus. Christ. Satan can get us so bound by seeing the spec in our brothers eye that we dont see the log in ours. Go to God and resist walking in condemnation and if you are truely open He will lead you in truth and in "Spirit".
