Christ

Don’t we all believe in the same Jesus?

No.  Just referring to the name ‘Jesus’ and meaning to refer to the Jesus Christ of ancient history does not make is so.  Many are believing in a ‘jesus’ of their own making or someone else’s.  This is forbidden by the First Commandment.

Exodus 20:3 “You shall have no other gods before me.

Consider the Following Orthodox Christians believe:

  1. Jesus is one with the Father.
  2. Jesus has always existed as God and does not have a wife.
  3. Lucifer is a fallen angel and is not a brother in any way to Jesus.

Mormons believe:

  1. Jesus is a god, one of many, a separate being from the Father.
  2. Jesus came into being when the Father had relations with his wife.
  3. Jesus and Lucifer are spirit brothers.

I asked two Mormon missionaries who were visiting with me in my home, based on this comparison, if we were talking about the same Jesus.  They admitted the obvious: no. To learn more about the real Jesus, get my Why Jesus study for free in the sidebar.

There are many ways to heaven?

This is true.  Everyone will go to heaven to be judged by God.  The real question is will you stay there?

John 14:6  “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’”

For the Christian who holds this view, Paul put it well:

Galatians 2:21  “I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!”
