AREN'T ALL RELIGIONS THE SAME?
Implied in this statement is the underlying belief that we all worship the same God.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Roman Catholicism, Buddhism, Jehovah Witnesses, Freemasonry, Seventh Day Adventism, Unity, Mormonism, New Age religion, Judaism, Christian Science, Church of Christ, Hinduism, Islam,
Taoism, Shintoism, Christadelphianism,
and "Christian" cults.
Any religion that won't ascribe to
GRACE ALONE, CHRIST ALONE,
FAITH ALONE, SCRIPTURES ALONE
will take you to hell faster than a rocket.
No my friend, the deception is this -
many religions look like the real deal
but have a different Jesus than the one
in the King James Bible.
Satan loves to misuse the Bible to prove his heresies and false doctrines.
"STUDY to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be
ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
(2 Timothy 2:15)
WHAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE?
We are clearly told in John 3:16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, (Jesus Christ) that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. "
RIGHT HERE WE CAN KNOCK OUT:
Buddhism, Freemasonry, New Age practices, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Shintoism, and Taoism.
Time and time again in the King James Bible we are told that salvation is by faith and not works.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians2: 8-9)
"But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness."(Romans 4:5)
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"
"That if thou shalt confess with thy
mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe
in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved"
"And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work." (Romans 11:6)
RIGHT NOW WE CAN KNOCK OUT THE REST OF THE FRAUDS:
Roman Catholicism, Church of Christ (Campbellites), Seventh Day Adventists, Mormons, Christadelphians, Jehovah Witnesses, Unity, and any other "Christian cult".
Everyone loves Jesus! But which Jesus?
THE MUSLIM JESUS:
Allah took Jesus Christ to heaven before the crucifixion. Judas died on the cross. Allah alone is God and Jesus isn't God but was a great prophet and was just a man.
THE MORMON JESUS:
Jesus was the first spirit child of Elohim, just as all humans, angels and devils are spirit children of Elohim. Jesus Christ was not God and is not God but just a god.
THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE, RELIGIOUS SCIENCE AND UNITY SCHOOL OF CHRISTIANITY JESUS
(these are the mind science cults)
"Christ" is a spiritual idea of God and not a person. Jesus neither suffered nor died for mankind's sins because sin doesn't exist. Rather, he helped humanity to cease from believing that sin and death have any reality.
THE JEHOVAH WITNESSES JESUS
Before Jesus was born on earth he was Michael the Archangel. He is a god but not Jehovah God. When their Jesus became a man he ceased to be a god. The JW's Jesus didn't rise physically from the dead, but Jehovah raised his spirit body and hid his physical remains. Now once again, Jesus exists as the Archangel Michael.
THE ROMAN CATHOLIC JESUS Man, the Catholics love Jesus but not the Jesus of the King James Bible.
The Catholic Jesus helps them only if they pray to his mother first.
The Catholic Jesus lives and resides in a white wafer - simultaneously inhabiting millions of pieces of bread world wide.
The Catholic Jesus is a weak Jesus and couldn't pay for all the sin and sins on the cross but only some. You see, their Jesus was able to open the doorway to heaven but it's up to man to climb the stairs of good works to get there.
The Jesus of the Bible fully paid the debt for all sin everywhere.
Catholics who say they love Jesus (and they can be Charismatic Catholics, Evangelical Catholics or born-again Catholics actually love a Jesus who is not the Biblical Jesus but one which they have made up from their own imagination.
THE FAITH AND PROSPERITY JESUS
These false teachers promote a Jesus who was materially prosperous.
John Avanzini says Jesus was very wealthy and wore designer clothes as evidenced by his seamless robe. Robert Tilton claims that being poor is a sin and since Jesus was sinless, he must have been extremely rich.
Fred Price drives a Rolls-Royce simply
because he is following Jesus. Oral Roberts says that because Jesus had a treasurer (Judas) He must have had plenty of money.
THE FAITH TEACHERS' JESUS Kenneth Hagin and Kenneth Copeland claim that Jesus had to go to hell to be tortured for as an exchange for Satan to give up his right over the earth. They say before Jesus went to hell, Satan had complete control over the earth and therefore God had to give Jesus over to him to be horribly molested for three days as payment. In addition Jesus had to be born again in hell.
THE SELF- ESTEEM PSYCHOLOGISTS' JESUS
Robert Schuller says Jesus died on the cross to secure our self esteem. They state that Jesus dying on the cross for us proves our infinite value to God and is the basis for our self - worth. "Jesus wouldn't die for trash now, would He?" is their claim.
"THE JESUS WHO LIVES IN EVERYONE" JESUS
Tony Campolo says that Jesus lives in everyone - saved or unsaved.
"THE WE HAVE TO FORGIVE
Neil Anderson and others who promote un-Biblical inner healing techniques says we have to forgive Jesus for past situations where we feel He has disappointed us or wounded us emotionally.
THE CHARISMATIC's JESUS
Their Jesus can't guarantee eternal security. They believe you can lose your salvation.
"THE JESUS IS NOT ENOUGH" JESUS This Jesus is preached by most churches now. Jesus is your credit card to get healing, health and wealth. "Have you received the baptism in the Holy Ghost?", "Been slain in the spirit?" "Have you roared like a lion?" "You must speak in tongues otherwise you're not saved". We are told:
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And YE ARE COMPLETE IN HIM..." (Colossians 2:8-10. a)
THE CORRECT JESUS - PAUL'S JESUS " But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For IF HE THAT COMETH PREACHETH ANOTHER JESUS, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." (2 CORINTHIANS 11:3-4)
No my friend, we don't all worship the same God. All the religions on the front of the paper have a Jesus that will take you straight to hell.
