Etiquette Used to Conceal the Sin of the Religiously-Correct

“They tell the prophets to keep quiet. They say, ‘Don’t talk to us about what’s right. Tell us what we want to hear. Let us keep our illusions. Get out of our way and stop blocking our path. We don’t want to hear about your holy God of Israel’” (Isaiah 30:10-11 GNB).

Barb Hallgrav, a commenter in the previous Notice Board posting (“What about ‘Keeping Christ in Christmas’?”) sent this note to Marilyn Hafichuk:

Hi Marilyn, I just discovered that you have used My name and My posts on facebook re Christmas on your husbands’s website Without my permission. I’m asking you hereby to please remove that. People cannot legally publish to their own website another person’s words or name Without their permission and I do not give it. Please remove it, thank you.


Marilyn responded:

Hi Barb,

I shared your concerns with Victor and Paul, Victor’s co-worker at The Path of Truth. This is his reply.

Hi Barb, Paul Cohen here from The Path of Truth,

Whether or not it’s legal to publish the correspondence Victor had with you and others on Facebook, a public forum, is something lawyers may debate, but there’s no question in our minds that doing so is kosher with God. You and your friends publicly and openly expressed your views about things pertaining to Him, and Victor openly answered them. So what’s wrong with publishing these unedited remarks? You are most certainly welcome to post our comments anywhere you please, provided you quote completely in context, give credit (or “blame”) where due, and don’t charge.

Why are you ashamed or afraid of people hearing what you believe about God? Do you speak truth? Has the Lord spoken to you and taught you the things you speak? If so, why would you be reticent to have it shouted from the housetops? Did you think you can talk about God publicly, but He can’t send anyone to answer you publicly? How are you any different than those who crucified the Lord, because you’re speaking according to their mindset?

In one of your posts you wrote: “I doubt if anyone really knows what our Lord hates other than sin & I cannot see anything with His name in it as sin.”

What do you think “taking His Name in vain” is, if not sin? Have you not red this Scripture?

“For the Name of God is blasphemed among the nations because of you, as it is written” (Romans 2:24 MKJV).

We had no agreement with you to confidentiality, Barb, and the matter is certainly a public one. We won’t be removing what we published, unless the Lord tells us otherwise. Is there anything you want to change in what you wrote? If you have anything to add or edit, we would consider publishing that too, Lord willing. Above all, we would love to see a retraction, not for our sakes, but for yours. Your religion and self-righteousness are killing you.

Barb’s response:

Marilyn, my comments were in reply to your post on facebook, between friends, and I did not give you permission to publish it elsewhere especially with My name attached. I believed I was speaking to a person not a group and you should have asked my permission first, out of simple etiquette.

I stopped replying and reading replies to that particular post because I’ve learned that arguing between Christians is wrong and that unity in Christ is more important, esp in these last days.

Marilyn, this has been a big breach of trust and I’m very disappointed in you. My faith in my Lord Jesus Christ is the most precious thing in my life and to have my beliefs mocked by a fellow Christian who believes somewhat differently is just sad.

But if your friend needs to use my words to prove his own beliefs on his website then so be it, but do me the courtesy of removing MY name.

*Colossians 2:16 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days”


Barb then unfriended Marilyn, allowing no opportunity for response. Paul and Victor respond here, at The Path of Truth, for Barb and everyone else:

Barb, Paul and Victor answering you on our site since you replied to Marilyn through Facebook and then unfriended her, cutting off our means of communication.

You say “arguing” between Christians is wrong and “unity in Christ” is more important in “these last days.” You sound like the pope or any other ecumenical preacher of the harlot church, to which you manifestly belong. What does the true Church of Christ, the Assembly of His saints, have to do with the works of men, that we should be united with them?

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 MKJV
(14) Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship does righteousness have with lawlessness? And what partnership does light have with darkness?
(15) And what agreement does Christ have with Belial? Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever?
(16) And what agreement does a temple of God have with idols? For you are the temple of the living God, as God has said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”
(17) Therefore come out from among them and be separated, says the Lord, and do not touch the unclean thing. And I will receive you
(18) and I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

It’s in the gatherings of idolatrous churches where you learned to celebrate “Christmas,” along with many other damnable lies. And you don’t want us to publish God’s argument against those things presented in His Name? We aren’t bound like you to hold those phony works together as representative of Christ, but are here in His Name to expose them as the paths of the destroyer, Satan.

One of Satan’s greatest lies is that, because men have called themselves by the Name of the Lord, they are His people. Haven’t you heard of “wolves in sheep’s clothing” and “tares”? Both terms describe those who appear to be something they aren’t. That’s you. The Lord said of such:

“Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your Name, and through Your Name throw out demons, and through Your Name do many wonderful works?’ And then I will say to them, ‘I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!’” (Matthew 7:22-23 MKJV)

You haven’t answered any of our questions, Barb, trying instead to validate your lawlessness by disguising it as lawful etiquette, which is pleasing to people who want to hide themselves in darkness, but not pleasing to God and His saints walking in the Light. If everyone were to follow your suggestions and ways, there wouldn’t be a Bible today, because those who wrote it named names and didn’t hold back on telling people their sins.

You call speaking the Truth “mocking” your beliefs and a “breach of trust.” We were not mocking you; rather, it is the Truth speaking against you, and so you are offended. You’ve put what you believe above God, because that’s where you’ve seated yourself. You’re altogether walking in the spirit of anti-Christ, the man of sin:

“Let not anyone deceive you by any means. For that Day shall not come unless there first comes a falling away, and the man of sin shall be revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself forth, that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 MKJV).

That’s you and your demand to have your etiquette honored. But we come with the Lord to put you away:

“And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming” (2 Thessalonians 2:8 MKJV).

Shame on Isaiah, who went naked before the people for years – how he lacked etiquette (Isaiah 20:2-3).

Shame on John the Immerser, who addressed the multitudes coming to him as a brood of vipers – how he lacked etiquette (Luke 3:7).

Shame on Peter, who rebuked Simon (Acts 8:20-23), and Paul, who rebuked Elymas (Acts 13:8-12).

And most of all, shame on Jesus, Who, while a guest in a man’s house, rebuked him for his wrong. How the Lord lacked etiquette (Luke 7:36–47)! You, Barb, worship another Jesus (2 Corinthians 11:4), one who prizes unity at the cost of the Truth. While we lack your etiquette prized by the prince of this world, you lack the righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ, your etiquette replacing worshipping Him in spirit and in truth.

“Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men, saying, ‘Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment against all, and to convict all the ungodly among them about all their ungodly deeds which they have committed impiously, and about all the harsh words which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him’” (Jude 1:14-15 EMTV).

Let the Lord be manifest and praised by all. Amen.

Paul and Victor

English - Chinese 上帝經常並在很長一段時間內向祂被召喚出來的人隱藏祂自己,就像祂對古今的所有聖徒和先知所做的那樣。我們非常渴望像這個世界上那樣憑眼見行走,但我們必須學會憑信心行走,藉著我們被賜給對未知的少量知識,該​​未知者,來讓我們認識祂。儘管祂隱藏自己來考驗我們,但祂一直都在那裡…沒有人可以離開祂的存在。然而,一個人可以選擇這樣做,而選擇這樣做不是被召喚出來的人。空虛本身並不是像人們所想的那樣一個壞跡象。 我因悲痛和悲哀而生病, 煩惱和孤獨; 我的靈魂充滿了呻吟和渴望; 我四處張望; 我伸出手; 我的手空空歸來; 淚水充滿我的靈魂; 我哭啊哭啊哭; 沒有人可以安慰,撫慰,減輕我的痛苦。 日復一日,年復一年, 一旬又一旬, 我等待,我渴望,我哭泣, 我嘆了口氣。 沒有人可以理解。 我等待早晨; 我等待傍晚; 我很傷心寂寞。 我進食,我入睡,我哭泣… 我說我沒有是罪嗎 那讓我變成了這樣—— 絕望、悲傷、孤獨、不滿足, 無用、被蔑視、不受歡迎? 這不是豐盛的生命; 雖然我的肉體需求得到滿足 來去自由, 然而我無處可去。 一切都是安靜的,平淡無奇的,單調乏味的和黯淡的。 我抱怨嗎 還是我只是說事情的情況 對於那些被神聖命令任命為這樣的, 不為了罪 而為了祂的目的? 我不知道; 我只知道我很哀愁也很孤獨; 這我知道。 我注意到我並不害怕 就像我曾經那樣; 我不懷疑我走的道路 就像我曾經那樣, 我是嗎? 我不貪圖鄰人設身的處地; 沒有我願意與他人交換的 然而我認為,如果 不是因為主抓住我的手, 我肯定會想 結束我的性命。 如果不是為了希望更好的事情, 我會如此絕望 我會安排我的結局。 多諷刺! 有很多值得感恩的, 所需要的都充足地被提供, 好妻子, 一個健康的新生兒子, 健康、整齊、安全和外在的平安, 內心卻是絕望的渴望 因為我不知道是什麼—— 朋友們?同伴?工作? 重要感?有用感?聲譽? 榮耀?尊重?認同感? 激動人心的?刺激奇遇的? 我不知道。 在靜止的時候我很煩惱。 為什麼?我不知道。 我只知道我很哀愁也很孤獨; 這我知道。 月亮河莊園,一九九一年十月二十九日

A Ghost in my House?

From: Gonzalo To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, December 28, 2015 7:22 PM Subject: A ghost in my house Hello Paul, I am happy to greet you again, I'm writing to ask your advice on something that just happened last tuesday at 6:30 am. in my son's room Jonnathan. Today, my son woke up screaming because while he slept he felt someone was touching his back and he could not get up, he felt bound, unable to move, he tried to break free because he felt the presence of someone, he looked along, and he saw next to his door the presence of a person with yellow sweatshirt and white pants, he could not see his face because he had covered with a type of white bandanna, my son was scared and ran from the room and saw that the presence backed and got into a big mirror that is hung outside his door. Please, can you please explain to me if it is a demon what he saw, and how I can get rid of it. My son is 25 years old, he has seen before many things during the night, but nothing like today Thanks Paul, I need your help.

Becoming Citizens of Heaven

From: Greg To: Paul Cohen Sent: Friday, April 24, 2015 1:35 AM G'day Paul, the 25th April in Australia and New Zealand is known as Anzac day and commemorates the Gallipoli landings in the first world war.I don't expect you're familiar with the occasion but it's a very big deal here, especially since this year is the centenary.In years gone by I've been caught up in the emotion of the day but have begun to maybe see it differently. While the bravery and commitment of the men in the trenches is to be admired it seems to me the whole event was under the wrath of God.When God told Israel to go to war things went well but when they went of their own accord it went badly.The Gallipoli campaign was a disaster from the first day until the last and ten of thousands lost their lives.Would appreciate your thoughts.Kind regards,Greg. From: Paul Cohen To: Greg Cc: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Saturday, May 02, 2015 7:54 AM Subject: April 24, 2015 Letter Hi Greg,  I’m not very familiar with the Gallipoli campaign. You’re also right in what you say about Israel, but also consider how they were different than the nations around them, being directly led by God as spoken of by David, His chosen king: “And what one nation in the earth is like Your people, like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to Himself, and to make Him a name, and to do for You great things and terrible, for Your land, before Your people, whom You redeemed to You from Egypt, from the nations and their...
