It's not my teaching. Nor does it belong to, or orignate from, any man. It is from God, and it is He who will have to enable you to see that the teachings are truth. There is no other way to know that the teachings on that site are truth. That site again is: www.thepathoftruth.com/
That is what every other teacher says. What makes you so confident YOU have truth and the rest are false?
MeMyself, I tell you again, plain and simply, that the only way I know is because God has personally revealed
it to me. And not just to me, but to others aswell.
Do join us, if you wish, for our usual Sabbath chat this Saturday (tomorrow). You can grill us and ask any question. I'm inviting you and anyone else who wishes to attend. The time that it starts is 12.00pm (Mountain time). You're all welcome: www.thepathoftruth.com/chat.htm
. Also, here's an email address, if there's anything you may want to ask: firstname.lastname@example.org
The bible is our "safety net" to help us discern who is truly of God and who is not. Anyone who tries and make others doubt the Word is suspect. The Word is GOD'S Word and can be trusted far more than any teaching, no matter who claims it is GOD'S! Following the Bible is following God. If teaching does not line up with scripture...which SO many are that claim they alone hold truth while condemning all others..it is a wolf and should be run from!
How can one follow a book, or follow teachings? Jesus said 'Come, follow Me!' (Matthew 4:19), not 'Come, Follow my teachings'. If you only follow the bible - and go no further, towards Who the bible points to - then the bible is your god.
The Israelites in the wilderness, who did they follow? The old testament?
Who did the Corinthians follow? The new testament?
Neither of them followed books, they followed men of God.
Which brings me to this:
You are following what the writers of your site are teaching...which is following man.
Yes I am indeed following men... men of God.
'Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ
' (1 Corithians 11:1)
But if i follow men who are following God I am also by extension, following God. And there is a difference, you see, between following carnal men and spiritual men (e.g. Paul). How do you know if you're following a man of God, like Paul, or a carnal, false teacher?
The same question could be asked of me. And to that question I answer, "I believe - through divine faith - that these men speak what is true, and are really sent by God". You could also say the same of your teachers; of your men (or women) that you follow. But if we both believe to follow the truth, one of must be deceived. Is it you or I? God knows.
I believe that the POT site and the men who teach on it, are from God Himself. I believe it through the gift of Divine Faith that I also believe has been given to me - through the hearing of His true Word and message (Romans 10:17).
You too can believe - through your own man-made faith - that the people you follow are from God.
But just like there's two types of teachers - the false and the true - there's two types of faith - the divine and the man-made/self-produced. Which one is yours?
MeMyself, I'm here to ask you to make a different choice, to consider different teachings. To come to what is true instead of sticking with what is false. That is why i've been referring you to that site. I'm here to advise you to choose Life, not death, as Moses advised the Israelites (Deuteronomy 30:9-20). Hopefully by this Word that I speak to you, you will be roused and awoken from the death that you are already in - and be resurrected to life... if it is your time.
