Subject: Thank you.
Thank you so much for your site. I worked for a pastor for years here in Missouri and she taught me many of these things regarding the Truth. When she was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 82, we had so many pastors visit and tell her: well read these books and proclaim this or that. At that time, I remembered Job. The first sentence in the book of Job tells us he was a good man- not that he lacked faith. There is so much out there right now that is false, and many are being deceived.
Hosea 4:6 tells us, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.”
How are we to “love His appearing..” As in 2 Timothy 4:8, when we don’t know Him? It seems we are in a time where many do not even attempt to find out if things line up with the Word. I really thought your words about Andrew Wommack were spot on. I couldn’t stop reading as these are all things, as a church, we had discussed- and had people tell us we were “overly critical.”
Well, I just wanted to say thank you for continuing in Truth. We need it in these times.

Thanks for the feedback. This is the Lord’s site – all His doing. Perhaps you spoke too soon thanking us for the site and for continuing in the Truth. What do you make of this Diabolical Doctrine?
These are indeed perilous times with falsehood everywhere. Only the narrow way of the Lord will get anyone through them, victorious in His faith.

I do not feel as though I was “quick” in thanking you. These are my thoughts on the subject. Maybe you don’t understand, as I am always grateful for Truth in these times. I, for one, would never assert authority over a man and have never claimed to do so.
I submit to the Lord as well as my husband, as goes hand in hand with Scripture. He also truly loves me as Christ loved the church. My personal testimony speaks to the fact that my husband should be in direct control of all things ministerially or otherwise.
The article speaks of “exceptions” to the rule. I wouldn’t purport that by any means.
“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.”
Jesus himself said that-
“For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.”
The only way to truly be saved is by looking into the mirror of the law and realizing none of us measure up-
“As it is written:“There is none righteous, no, not one; “
And we should all be humbled by that.
There is a very clear and well-defined difference between being in authority over a man and evangelizing- which we are all called to do.
It is, however, only under the authority of the Lord and His order of things. The “pastor” I worked for was only that because she and her husband were missionaries and ministers together when he passed away.
With all of this said, I still appreciate your site and the honesty in these times we are living in. It is a breath of fresh air.
So much out there IS false and so many are listening to what will, “tickle their ears.” Jeff & I frequently get people recommending such things as, “Your Best Life Now,” by Joel Osteen. Not the way it’s supposed to be in our view- our best life is with the Lord, in heaven!
Well, thanks again,
Subject: Amish faith From: Sam Zook To: Victor Hafichuk Date: 12/12/2015 12:39 PM Hello. I have a few questions on Matthew 18:18.. I grew up Amish and when I was 17 my whole family left the old order amish because we felt they were teaching a works based salvation.. We were Mennonite (drove cars and had electricity etc) for 2 years.. Then my parents wanted to go back to some kind of amish, so we could communicate with our relatives a little more.. So they found a new-order type amish church that thought salvation through faith.. And being born again etc. They don't have man made rules tied to the church.. They live solely on the bible. Anyway, I met a girl from a strict old order church and we fell in love and are planning on getting married in May.... But in order to marry her I have to move to her church and become a member there.. At first I didn't like that idea cause they believe in a lotta stuff that I don't believe is 100% truth.. (they have very low morals, their young people party, get drunk and are very wild...not unlike the young of this world, almost everyone smokes.. They don't talk about God much except in church.. And even then its only the preachers talking about God... They believe we cannot know if we are saved, that we just go through life in good hopes that we did good enough and attended church enough to reach salvation when they meet Jesus.. There's lot more stuff but I will touch on that later) But I decided I will do that so we...

On 03/07/21 in the morning hours I was finishing reading about tithes and offerings from www.thepathoftruth.com and the highlight for me was that The Lord loves a cheerful giver , one who gives not because he has to but because he wants to. I asked The Lord to give me a heart that gives willingly and cheerfully. Not that I was not willing but that I would always be a willing one, a cheerful one.Then as I relaxed on the bed, I was contemplating my attitude on Sabbath keeping. This 03/07/21 was a Saturday and I was keeping Sabbath as per your teaching. After pondering I came to the conclusion that I was keeping Sabbath not because I wanted to, or desired for that matter but because I had to. I was concerned. I remembered Paul the apostle had addressed the subject of law and faith and read through Romans10 and Galatians, especially from 2:11-...continuing. Then it became clear to me that keeping the Sabbath from Friday evening to Saturday evening is keeping the Law by works. I contemplated it and realised the physical keeping had nothing to do with faith but is a work. You have written on one of the articles on Sabbath from thepathoftruth, https://www.thepathoftruth.com/teachings/sabbath/spiritually-keeping-the-physical-sabbath.htm A section of it ...
From: Mike To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, September 04, 2016 10:21 AM Subject: Review I just read half of the scathing review on Andrew Murray and had to stop. I have no need to defend Murray, God will be his judge. However, talk about self exaltation you seem to be the optimum offender. Who commissioned you to be judge and jury? I got the feeling that Murray's life was a reproach to you simply because you couldn't live up to his Christlikeness. Your exegesis on the passages that call us to conform to the image of Christ are skewed by your bias. Sorry but I think you need to read more Murray.

Has Andrew Murray ever claimed to hear the Lord’s Voice? If so, are you taking his word for it? God is Murray’s judge, present tense, according to His Word spoken by us. Jesus Christ is here, but you deny Him. “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antiChrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world” (1 John 4:2-3 KJV). “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt. They have done abominable deeds. There is no one who does good” (Psalms 14:1 WEB). ...
