Vladimir Yasmenko is just a dude that Loves God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). Also, he reads and studies the Bible so he can know what God likes and doesn't like, that way he can please God better and at the same time be a better example for people around him. And, yes, he does fall sometimes or even lots of times, but he knows that with God's help he can get up, go on, and be clean from ALL sins. In these Bible Notes Vladimir just wants to share his opinion and knowledge on certain places in the Bible. So, that means, do Not take his opinion as a Fact, only the Holy Bible is The Fact. That is why you should read your own Bible, so you would know what is truth and why people believe what they believe.
