News Flash for Breakaway Sacred Name Groups!
In a decisive action aimed at “setting the record straight” on recent baseless and groundless accusations leveled against the Assemblies of Yahweh organization, its representatives, and in particular Elder Jacob O. Meyer, legal action has now officially begun against the criminal elements of the Sacred Name Movement!
Although harsh and unjustified criticism of Elder Meyer as well as the Assemblies of Yahweh has not been the norm, (particularly by those who have been disgruntled former members), in recent days the outright prevarications and slanderous attacks have become more outlandish and according to our investigations, just plain false. We see a fulfillment of the passage in 2 Timothy 3:13 “But evil men and imposters shall become worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” It is a sign of the times when these apostate members and groups make libelous statements as a recruiting method. It appears that something has finally got to be done to separate truth from the lies being published by these dissidents.
Recently we at Truth on the Net Dot Com received a correspondence from the Bishop of the Assemblies of Yahweh regarding the steps he has taken to ensure the truth becomes known, and the lies and accusations cease. His correspondence contained a letter from a retained law firm. With permission from Elder Jacob O. Meyer, I will share the contents of that letter to illustrate the deviousness and corrupted thinking of these renegades from truth, and to serve as a warning to others who would use deceit to further their own ends.
Dear Mr. X
I represent Jacob O. Meyer. He has referred to me your recent correspondence which you sent to your sister X.
The content of your correspondence as it refers to Mr. Meyer and others is defamatory in nature in that you have made dastardly accusations which I have been informed are absolutely untrue.
By publishing these defamatory statements via correspondence to your sister, you have exposed yourself to an action for defamation which would involve not only claims for compensatory damages, but also punitive damages. Consequently, you are hereby placed on notice that if the same or similar activity as referred to above is continued by you, suit will be instituted against you seeking monetary damages, together with interest and costs of suit.
Frankly, based on the content of the letter, I would have considered recommending to Mr. Meyer that he immediately file suit but he has only authorized me at this point to send you this letter as a fair warning of what will follow unless you immediately cease and desist such activity to which reference has hereinbefore been made.
Very truly yours,
An illustration of this kind of writing has been on one such group’s web site reviewed here on Truth on the Net Dot Com. These individuals have sought to slander the organization and instructor that taught them the truth. But these wayward individuals have crossed the legal line all too frequently, and enough is enough. You may disagree with the doctrines of another organization but you may not wrongfully impugn their character or the character of that organization. (Prov 22:1 A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, And loving favor rather than silver and gold.) These people have sought to illegally destroy that good name as well as besmirch the name of their creator.
We here at Truth on the Net Dot Com have sought not to attack the individual but the sin, false doctrine, and unscriptural behaviors. By doing so we have received the same harsh criticism from some, and gratitude from others who are seeking truth.
“Transgressing and denying Yahweh, and turning away from following our Elohim, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And justice is turned away backward, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth has fallen in the street, and uprightness cannot enter. Yes, truth is lacking; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey. And Yahweh saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice.” Isaiah 59:13-15
This posting should put all splinter groups with “an axe to grind” on notice. You may not cross the legal line with false statements attempting to destroy the character of another, and to dramatize and color your own particular activities as to appear legitimate.
“Yahweh, who shall sojourn in your tabernacle? Who shall dwell in your holy hill?"
"He that walks uprightly, and works righteousness, And speaks truth in his heart; He that slanders not with his tongue, Nor does evil to his friend, Nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor; In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, But who honors them that fear Yahweh; He that swears to his own hurt, and changes not;” Psalm 15:1-4
Here is good counsel from the sweet psalmist David. All would do well to heed it!
I am sure there will be much more to be said on this subject in future postings. I will keep you alerted to future developments concerning this subject matter.
Like I previously informed the readers of this website, that if alerts became available I would keep you informed. Well, here is another letter we received to post as a warning! Beware! These people mean business!
I represent the Assemblies of Yahweh of Bethel, Pennsylvania.
It has recently come to our attention that you have been engaging yourself in a pattern and practice of repeatedly contacting existing members of the Assemblies of Yahweh in an effort to recruit them from the Assemblies of Yahweh organization, to your organization.
I am further informed that these members object to your doing so. Despite the same, you have engaged in repeated efforts to contact such members.
In light of the foregoing, the purpose of this letter is to instruct you to not make further contacts with those members who object to the same. Furthermore, it you undertake any wrongful activity which financially impacts the Assemblies of Yahweh, they fully intend to forcefully pursue any and all legal recourse which is available to them. Needless to say, they hope that this will not be necessary. Therefore, you should conduct yourself accordingly. Thank you.
Very truly yours,
CC: Assemblies of Yahweh
In Yahshua the Messiah;
