Loving Your Neighbor
A reply from Paul on an interesting question:
You ask about Galatians 5:14:
“For all the Law is fulfilled in one word, even in this, ‘You
shall love your neighbor as yourself’” (Galatians 5:14
“Does it mean that if the second command
is fulfilled, the first one is automatically fulfilled too? And vice-versa?”
would say that the Second Commandment is fulfilled because the
First Commandment has been fulfilled. After all, doesn’t
everything hinge on loving God with all our hearts and having no
other gods before
Mark 12:28-31 MKJV
(28) And coming up one of the scribes heard them reasoning, knowing
that He had answered them well, he asked Him, “Which is the first
commandment of all?”
(29) And Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments
is, ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord;
(30) and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all
your strength.’ This
is the first commandment.
(31) And the second is like this: ‘You shall love your
neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater
You can see in Galatians that Paul is speaking
to fellow believers. In the verse previous to the one quoted
above, he says:
“For, brothers, you were called to liberty. Only do not use the
liberty for an opening to the flesh, but by love serve one
In another place Paul says to them:
“This only I would learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit
by works of the Law, or by hearing of faith? Are you so foolish?
in the Spirit, do you now perfect yourself in the flesh?” (Galatians
Now we know that those who love (obey) God (by His
grace) receive His Spirit. So Paul is exhorting his brothers
to walk in the
one another in the love of God.
Romans 8:12-14 MKJV
(12) Therefore, brothers, we are not debtors to the flesh, to
live according to the flesh.
(13) For if you live according to the flesh, you shall die.
But if you through the Spirit mortify the deeds of the body,
(14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are
the sons of God.
We need to be diligent to follow through on what
God has given us, and He will take us all the way.
1 John 4:7-11
(7) Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and
everyone who loves has been born of God, and knows God.
(8) The one who does not love has not known God. For God is
(9) In this the love of God was revealed in us, because God
sent His only begotten Son into the world that we might live
(10) In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved
us and sent His Son to be the propitiation concerning our sins.

God. Our job is to trust Him by doing our part, whatever He
gives each of
us for today.
If you worship God, you’ll obey His Commandments.
If you obey His Commandments, you’ll find yourself loving

The Fight Against Fluoride
“And the nations were full

The Lord has given us to fight against the practice
of poisoning drinking
water in the name of health, also
called “water fluoridation.” Our
battle has been specifically taking place in Lethbridge, Alberta, but
by extension, everywhere this egregious practice is in effect. (If you
aren’t familiar with the facts about this toxic assault on humanity
and the environment, see 50
Reasons to Oppose Fluoridation and
our website, www.FluorideFreeLethbridge.com.)
Everyone should be informed of the facts, but facts alone don’t
change the disposition of pride and sin that insists on maintaining this
destructive practice. Our battle is primarily with spiritual wickedness
in high places, against the rulers of the darkness of this world that
blinds people to the reality of such misbehavior. The Lord would have
all repent and cease the destruction. To that end, He has given us light
to shine on the issues of the heart in this matter
and all others. When the heart is turned, men will abandon
for self-enrichment and empowerment at the expense of others, and will
instead become producers of goodness towards all.

Some Thoughts Sparked by Easter
The name “Easter” is the name of the pagan goddess, known
as Easter, Ishtar, or Ashtoreth, the “many-breasted one,” the
goddess of sex, fertility, prosperity, fruitfulness, success, and happiness.
Hence, people use bunnies and eggs to celebrate Easter, things prolific
Did you know they had female priestesses and religious sexual orgies
in honor of her, the “queen of Heaven”? Do you really want
to be identified with these devilish origins and activities in any way?
See what Jeremiah had to say about such practices in Jeremiah chapter
44. God hates mixture, you know; if you don’t, you will.
Many nominal Christian churches preach a Jesus of physical prosperity
and fertility. Such is the Word-Faith doctrine - “Name it and claim
it” - propagated by Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland and countless other prosperity preachers. Such diabolical doctrines nurture
a selfish attitude of giving to get (the “seed faith” doctrine
made popular by Oral Roberts and proclaimed by thousands).
The world churches love and praise a god of comeliness. They lawlessly
images, depicting Jesus as a handsome man, when, truly,
the Word of God by Isaiah describes Him quite differently (Isaiah 53:1-5).
In spirit and essence, they preach Attractive Ashtoreth, the mythical
many-breasted succulent sex beauty. It is another Jesus they worship,
and they give His Name to a pagan deity. Thus, there is great confusion,
which is the meaning of the words “Babel” and “Babylon.”
“[God] also said to me, ‘You turn again, and you shall see
greater evils that they are doing. And He brought me to the opening of
the gate of the LORD’s house, toward the north. And behold, women
were sitting there, weeping for Tammuz” (Ezekiel 8:13-14 MKJV).
Lent happens to be the period of weeping for Tammuz 40 days, one day
for each year he had lived. The parallels to the Lord’s life and
events thereof are stunning, aren’t they (I speak tongue-in-cheek)?
Yes, He was 40 days appearing and disappearing on earth after His resurrection,
but He appeared to those who believed, and they were rejoicing, not weeping.
Tammuz went to his grave and remained there. Not so with the Lord Jesus
The confusion and abominations don’t end there. While the Lord
Jesus is the Lamb (a clean animal) of God, the “Christian” world
celebrates Easter (supposedly celebrating the time of Jesus’ resurrection)
with ham, the carcass of a pig (an unclean animal). Subtly, the world
calls the Messiah, “the pig of God.” It was a boar that killed
the pagan god, Tammuz (some god!), and so they eat a pig in his honor
at the event named after his mother, Semiramis –Ishtar or Easter.
It is an intentional insult to Jews to be eating ham, a meat God declared
unclean for His people, at Passover. In contempt of the Jews, Gentiles
partake. Why do nominal Christians despise the Jews so much that they
would be willing to malign Jesus Christ in the process, the One they
presume to worship?
It’s hard to comprehend how intelligent, educated people fall
prey to this nonsense. But such is the power and mystery of iniquity.
Truly, the masses are insanely stupid by sin. It has nothing to do with
Paul the apostle said of the flesh and blood Jews, “Concerning
the Gospel, they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election,
they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the calling
of God are irrevocable” (Romans 11:28-29).
I don’t care who you are; if you despise the Jews, you despise
the fathers - Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob - whom you deem to be men of
faith and of God. Indeed, you despise God, Who has long ago determined
not to cast them off forever. (Dare read the books of the prophets Isaiah,
Jeremiah, and Ezekiel for yourself; read Romans chapters 9, 10, and 11
if you insist on the New Testament.)
Hitler, where are you now? Babylon, where are you? Alexander the Great
and your empire, mighty Rome, where are you? What happened to you, Eastern
Europe? What is now happening to you, Western Europe? Are you not in
great turmoil? You slaughter the Jews and expect to get away with it?
Now you have them replaced by murderous Muslims who take everything away
How you reap and will reap for what you’ve sown and still sow!
And where will you be when all is said and done, Arabs and Muslims who
vow the destruction of Jews and Israel? Will you fare any better than
Hitler? Don’t count on it. Truly, count otherwise; it is guaranteed.
It is written: Those who curse the Jews curse themselves. (Read A
Word to the Enemies of Israel.)
It had been my conviction that Canada was in dire trouble because it
shut the doors to the Jews who sought a haven during World War II when
the Nazis sought to destroy them. But not many years ago, there was a
prayer movement in Canada wherein a group of believers confessed this
nation’s sins against Israel and asked forgiveness of God for what
Canada had done half a century ago. I believe God heard their confession
and honored their public repentance, not because of any righteousness
on their part, but for His Name and glory.
Today we have Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservative government
standing strong on Israel’s side, something we’ve not ever
seen in Canada before. This is despite intense international pressure
and pressures within Canada. Sometimes Canada is the only nation to stand
with Israel. For this, as Mr. Harper acknowledges, he has had to pay
a price, but I believe God will bless and keep Canada for his stance.
I know He is doing so. Indeed, God is blessing Canada by giving us a
government willing to identify with Israel in its great trials in this
last great day of history. We stand in awe.
The Lord Jesus Christ, raised from the dead three days after being offered
up on the Passover as the Lamb of God, will yet save His people, as promised.
“And so all Israel shall be saved; as it is written, ‘There
shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and He will turn away ungodliness
from Jacob. For this is My covenant with them, when I have taken away
their sins’” (Romans 11:26-27 MKJV).

“Israel’s Only Friend”?
Ed Koch, former mayor of New York, recently died, and it reminded us
that we wrote to a website that published his
article in September 2011.
Here is the letter:
I most certainly have a question, if not a comment, of Mr. Koch. I have
appreciated his articles, reasoning, and stance for Israel. But in this
article, he says, “The U.S. is Israel’s only friend and ally.”
Is this true? Is he qualifying that statement with the idea that America
is the only friend and ally that seems powerful enough to help Israel
in any significant way? Because I see Prime Minister Stephen Harper of
Canada standing up for Israel. I have seen Minister Jason Kenney of Harper’s
cabinet standing up for Israel. Does the present Canadian government
not get any credit with Mr. Koch for its stance, for which it has paid
the price in many ways, one of those being the loss of a seat on the
U.N. Security Council, which Germany and even Portugal won instead?
I understand that most Jews are Liberals and Democrats. Traditionally,
that has certainly been so.
Wasn’t it a Liberal, Mr. Michael Ignatieff, Opposition Leader
to Harper, who criticized Harper’s support for Israel, and who
may have been a cause of the loss of that seat at the U.N.?
Isn’t Ignatieff the man who, before entering Canadian politics
and while reporting in Lebanon, criticized Israel and supported the Muslim
Arabs in the war, while all Israel was doing was defending herself?
Isn’t it a Democrat who, as President of the U.S., stands ready
to throw Israel under the bus - with fiendish relish, I might add? And
this is a
man whom the Jews significantly helped bring to power.
Are Jews like Mr. Koch so politically partisan that they don’t recognize
a friend when they have one in the present Conservative government of
Do Jews encourage further support from Canada and other nations by Ed
Koch’s insulting, dismissive remark? Can he, as a Jew, afford to publicly “schmooze” with
a power Jews assume or hope to be their friend, while publicly disregarding
those who pay a price to be their friend?
We have been supporting Mr. Harper and his government in his support
of Jews and of Israel. Maybe Mr. Koch knows something about Canada’s
government and Prime Minister Harper concerning present-day relations
with Jews and Israel that we don’t. If so, enlighten us. I would
like to hear what he knows that we don't, and would gladly take revelations
Mr. Jolkovsky, I'd like to hear from both you and Mr. Koch on this one.

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
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,
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
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
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
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
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.
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
*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
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
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
Your Name do many wonderful works?' And then I will say to them,
'I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!'” (Matthew
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
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
