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.

Won’t I go to heaven as long as I believe in God?

From a biblical perspective:

James 2:19   “You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.”

Matthew 7:21-23   “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
