I just don’t understand why your message is dedicated to Timothy Williams. Shouldn’t your testimony and praise be to God?
The email message above was sent to me concerning this website. What a dull and dumb question.
“Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them. (Matthew 15:16)
Timothy Williams is a righteous, holy, God fearing man who still teaches and lives the full message of the cross. Of course I would tell the truth about his life and praise his example.
Perhaps this person is just an ignorant unbeliever but more than likely they are a trouble maker seeking to stir up division. Believer or not this person defiantly does not understand God’s love.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. (1 John 3:16)
They do not understand that Jesus Christ laid down His life for me and I in turn am filled with His joy and love to lay down my life for all saints and sinners. If this individual even bothered to read my website they would know that I had sinned against Pastor Timothy. I had sinned against a holy righteous man and this website was just one way I could repent.
A person cannot be right with God until they have repented against those they sinned against. Jesus said, “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift. (Matthew 5:23-24)
I am being obedient to what Jesus said. This website is a way to repent and be reconciled to Timothy and then I press on to seek God more and more in my life.
How blind can this commenter be? Of course I would repent of abandoning Pastor Timothy Williams. The more my love for Jesus grows the more my love for Timothy grows. He is a prime example of a modern day disciple and I aim to follow his example more and more. In fact anyone who wants to live a godly life should seek out this same kind of loving fellowship that comes from God.
The Apostle John wrote,
This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother. (1 John 3:10)
Clearly the person that contacted me is not a child of God. Love from the Holy Spirit would naturally lead me to love and lay down my life for Timothy, a brother and father in Christ.
You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed. For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory. (1 Thessalonians 2:10-12)
Just like the scripture above I am a witness to the holy, righteous, and blameless life Pastor Timothy Williams lives.
The kind of sinister, evil, cult like suspicions I got in this email is the same path King County Prosecutors in Washington State took as they destroyed that unique love found at Sound Doctrine Church. The love that comes from the Holy Spirit when one gives up everything for Jesus.
Timothy Williams himself is not special, but Jesus Christ is and Jesus has called me to lay down my life for Timothy just as Timothy lays down his life for me.
Praise the Lord that Timothy still teaches the Truth, the message of the cross that frees me from deceptions of men. By picking up my cross I to can walk in Christ’s love for Pastor Timothy and all those around me.
I suggest the person who sent me that message repents of their sinful unbelieving heart. Such stupid questioning shows they are not a child of the Light, but a child of darkness.
Whoever seeks to truly pick up their cross and follow Jesus my offer still stands.
