Path of Truth is a cult following of Victor Hafichuk who goes to great length to share dreams and visions he had (as an unbeliever) with his catholic background. Even to the point of ,”That year of 1972, I decided to fast for three days and three nights, without food or water. It was around that time that I had a dream” more dreams without godly accountability, being an invite for the devil. Supposedly God is talking to him through dreams and visions while the only spirit he’s connected to is the devil. His “testimony” shows all the signs of catholic devil spiritualism.
He then goes on, not unlike Joseph Smith ( father of Mormonism), starting out with an invented word, theo-autobiography which has no etymological basis. He describes it as some sort of two party autobiography which includes God (theos). Like Joseph Smith, he promotes many unverifiable god moments that lead him (as god leads him) down a path to bondage to (his version) of the Law, all along the way declaring anything not of “the Path of Truth” as pagan, from cities, to Amway, to even having cats in the house, for goodness sake. When he rounded the corner to Universalism, and that the day will come when the devil sits on God’s lap and is “reconciled” to an all around good guy you know that the devil has control of him.
He promotes a germ phobia clinging tightly to any related clean and unclean references in the Bible. You can tour their forum and find incredulous fears and or references, such as one man being afraid of becoming an abomination because he lives with his parents and they have cats in the house. Their constant reference and bondage to cleanness precludes “Jesus commands” where Jesus condemns those worried about cleanness over compassion in the parable of the Good Samaritan.
He holds a strong controlling influence over his followers and his associated “forum”. Anyone, like myself, unfortunate enough to join the forum in hopes of having dialogue finds out quickly that the moderators create a pagan character out of you by truncating, modifying or blocking postings that you make.
As an example, when you provide the direct text that gentile Christians are NOT required to follow the law, per Acts 15, they will smother you with Jesus quotes from the 4 Gospels where Jesus said “follow my commands” and then they will thrash you with Jesus wrote the Mosaic law and you are supposed to follow His commands. The fact is, Jesus never addressed the Church in the gospels, He would have to die first.
Victor shows a lifetime of “god moments” of changing things, god “revealing” new things among them the aforementioned paganism’s creating an increased isolationism and earthly “purification”. He is following a close track to Joseph Smith, again, making things up on the fly, even to the point of declaring gospels as corrupt and offering an abridgement. Most recently He had the “duty”, in regard to his close friend and partner Paul Cohen, to strip Paul of his authority (apparently Paul was having misgivings), rank etc….according to, “I AND THE LORD”. Much of his writings and “teachings” have a style and flavor of Daniel 13. Shame on you if you just went to look for Daniel 13, as it isn’t in the Bible of Christ followers.
Victor is so powerful in his god connection that he is even given extra-biblical proverbs.
“In the middle of the night of April 15-16 of 2007, it was given me to write proverbs. Like a tap of water turned on, they came, one after the other, 78 in all. Then, as fast as they began, they ended, like a tap turned off. There was no premeditation, no expectation and when the end came, there was nothing I could do to continue. They were just there.”
Many in the King James English, of course. Many are just rehashed . In truth, a proverb is just a saying anyway, like, “Only a fool spits into the wind”.
One of the tell tale signs of the cult involvement is when people start talking in King James English. The fake religious piety of the old guy is a give away. I was described by one offended as being dead and he could smell about me dead man’s bones. Pretty powerful Internet connection I’d say.
Truly, I don’t have a problem with a guy who hates cats and dogs (ok, yes I do) in the house ( apparently vermin running around inside the house is OK sans the cats), and that maybe he found the religious hygiene rules of Mosaic Law attractive. But to turn it into a religious belief system, pulling his unfortunate adherents into it, is devilish. I’ve compared him to Joseph Smith. Well, Joseph Smith was an attention mongering kid (like Victor) who got caught up in his own falsehood when adults actually believed him and the rest is history. It’s much the same here, what MAY have started out as one thing has gotten, full blown, out of hand. God help them if this man reaches the control that Jim Jones did.
