Unlearned Saying & Objection – “Who are you to judge?”

English – Spanish

A reader sent us this note:

who has made a judge over this people? don’t u know satan is the accuser of brethren? There even a ???????? about u.

Our reply:

We know Satan is the accuser of the brethren, but apparently you don’t, Satan. That means your day of judgment is here.

As for those we expose, they aren’t brethren. They are your sons and brothers, not ours or Christ’s.

Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk

Victor’s comments:

I considered that there can be some we’ve posted who are brethren in need of correction, but then I recalled the words of the Lord, “Who are My brothers and sisters and mother? They who do the will of My Father” (Matthew 12:47-50). All the people involved in men’s works and preaching false doctrine aren’t doing His will.

If God has given us to take the beam out of our eye, don’t we see clearly to remove the sliver in our brother’s eye, if he is a brother?

But countless professing believers condemn us as if we accuse brethren rather than judge them and expose the wicked. That’s because they’re doing the very thing they accuse us of doing – accusing those who truly are Christ’s brethren, doing the will of God. Jude wrote of these, and of our calling to declare their true state of enmity with God:

Jude 1:14-16 MKJV
(14) And Enoch, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied to these, saying, Behold, the Lord came with myriads of His saints,
(15) 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.
(16) These are murmurers, complainers, leading lives according to their lusts. And their mouth speaks proud things, admiring faces for the sake of gain.

Now, 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 says that God judges those that are without. So Jonah shouldn’t have gone to Nineveh? Isaiah, Jeremiah, and other prophets shouldn’t have prophesied against other nations? John the Baptist shouldn’t have said anything against Herod?

“Don’t judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment” (John 7:24 HNV).

The Abomination of Desolation for Satan's Darkened Followers
From: Janet To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, June 21, 2016 12:59 AM Subject: Confused I just got through watching an episode of "It's Supernatural" with Sid Roth.  Obviously, you don't like him very much.  I decided to read your article which claimed to "expose" him, but nowhere in this article could I find anything specific that explained how he turned to the occult, and could not be believed/trusted.  I'm not objecting to your claims; I'm just saying that you don't seem to provide any proof for them. So my question is simply, what things has Mr. Roth done/not done that you find objectionable?  Bear in mind that I'm really not familiar with the guy at all and I'm not trying to defend him because I've only watched one of his shows, and it was the first time I had even heard of him.  I'm just wondering why you find him to be a false prophet, or whatever.  I feel that such accusations should not be made lightly, because they may be read and believed by many people without any substantiation. Again, I would be interested in reading your explanation for your objection to Mr. Roth.  For all I know, I may agree with you. Thanks.  I do not use this Gmail address for mail; if you do care to write, I can be reached at .

Walls, Doors, and Defenses
While the world not only "borders" on, but seems to have embraced insanity, I must raise a wall of protection against a flood of madness, a wall of reason erected by the Word of Truth against false walls.

Knowledge alone cannot bring you to the Truth. Only a broken spirit and contrite heart will lead to the beginning of true understanding in the Lord.
