Jesus Christ paid the price, and those who will enter life must pay the price. There is nothing worthwhile gained in this world or the next without paying the price. Those who believe will pay it.
Religion is about a free ride. Those who are religious want the glory without the cross. That is what religion is all about, be it Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Catholicism, Mormonism, or any other.
Reality is about paying the price for Christ’s sake, about laying down the life. There is no other way to true victory, fulfillment, gain and peace.

From: Sheila To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, June 19, 2016 5:52 PM Subject: Thank you! Dear Bro. Hafichuk: I just wanted to say "thank you so much!!" for your article "The case for coming out". Over the past year, I have been spending much time in praying in the Spirit and reading the word. A few months ago, I told the Lord (bc I tell Him everything) that I really have no desire to go to church anymore bc I already know what they're going to do before I get there. It's always the same, and I really wasn't enjoying being there. BUT, I really enjoy spending hours at home in my bedroom with Him... worshipping the Lord, praying and reading (and hearing) the word. It has been almost 3 months since my last visit to church, and today I was gonna go, not bc I wanted to, but bc I felt like I "should". Before I got out of bed, I heard the scripture Hebrews 10:25, and began to read and understand what it is truly saying. You ready know what my conclusion is. I will not assemble with the harlot, bc I am not of the harlot!! Praise The Lord!! I know the Lord allowed me to find your article and website today, (I have NEVER seen it before or even heard of it) and I thank Him, and thank you for sharing The Truth! "Now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen." (Jude 24-25) ...
I would like to know how you approach the Great Commission? Should believers be out on the streets witnessing nonstop like some teach or...?
How does one know they have taken up the cross? What does that look like? How can it be explained? Answers are given to a sincere seeker of God.
