Today more than ever, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world, is under attack. New beliefs like Feng Shui, Zen, New Age, and Islam, the Kingdom (Apollo Quiboloy) try to mix and match God's truth in the Bible by injecting their own "little "teachings".
Attempts to dilute the truth of the Bible with one universal religion, "all are Christ, God is all..." is a falsehood and a form of deception.
Christ Himself warned us of this in the last days.
Matthew 24:4 says:
"Jesus answered: 'Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, claiming, "I Am the Christ," and will deceive many."
The Bible says Jesus Christ is THE Only Begotten Son of God. Not Buddha, not Mohammed, not Quiboloy, not anyone human. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and He is God.
The Resurrection of our Lord is the final and recorded proof of His being the Son of God.
Acts 1:3 says "After His suffering, He showed Himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that He was alive. He appeared tot hem over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God."
No one in the whole history of this world has ever died, risen from the dead, and lived for forty days on earth.
There is no way the New Age or World Religion will "blend" with the teachings of the Bible because God's Word is definite, specific, and
powerful. God's Word says Jesus Christ is THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life. No one comes to the Father EXCEPT through Him. (John 14:6)
There is no need for a part two, no need for a "Mediatrix" or "Intercessor/Messenger", or another "son" to do the Redemption all over again.
These teachings are the misconceptions and sheer deceptions of men, not the truth of God.
When our Lord Jesus Christ was on the Cross, He said these words: "It is finished" - here He meant the work of Redemption is finished, completed, and sealed - by His own blood. "Tetelestai" is the Greek word used to describe the "payment" made by the Son of God to
ransom men from sin and to pour out God's grace and forgiveness through Him.
How then can God, if these teachings were even considered, send another "saviour" or blend all other finite saviours into His Son's work? Has He forgotten some minute details? Definitely not
This is what these man-made teachings are trying to present. There is one word that best describes it: COMPROMISE.
Compromise TRUTH for the sake of "peace".
Never. His truth will stand and His truth will march on, for He is Rock of Ages.
"Today more than ever, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world, is under attack." This is true...I am glad that you are a citizen of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ and that you will stand up for the truth. I enjoyed this piece of writing. MAy God bless you in 2010...Amen.
Islam is hardly "new." Nor is it a cult. Only a small percentage of muslims attack Christianity. Disagreement is not an attack. Very few religions seek to be part of one religion. Everyone thinks they're right.
