                        THE OTHER JESUS                           of the CULTS

                      -=< MORMONISM'S >=-

                              I. "When the virgin Mary conceived the child Jesus, the Father had begotten Him in His own likeness. He was not begotten by the Holy Ghost. And who was the Father? He was the First of the Human Family! BRIGHAM YOUNG,  Journal of Discourses 1:50

"When the time came that His firstborn, the Saviour, should come into the world and take a tabernacle (body) the Father came Himself and favoured that Spirit with a tabernacle instead of letting any other man do it.."    BRIGHAM YOUNG, Journal of Discourses, 4:28

                              II. "It is true that the earth was organized by three distinct characters, namely, Eloheim, Yahova and Michael these three forming a Quorum, as in all heavenly bodies, and in organizing element, perfectly represented in the Deity, as Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

"The heads of the Gods appointed one God for us; and when you take [that] view of the subject, it sets you free"

JOSEPH SMITH,Jr., History of the Church 6:475,476

                              III. "There is not a man or a woman, who violates the covenants made with their God, that will not be required to pay the debt. The Blood of Christ will never wipe that out, your own blood must atone for it" BRIGHAM YOUNG, Journal of Discourses, 1:108

"There are sins that men commit for which they cannot receive forgiveness in this world or in that which is to come, and if they had their eyes opened to see their true condition, they would be perfectly willing to have their blood spilt upon the ground ..."  BRIGHAM YOUNG, Journal of Discourses, 4:53

DOCTRINE OF BLOOD ATONEMENT

"No man or woman in this dispensation will ever enter into the celestial kingdom of God without the consent of Joseph Smith ...."  (Many, many references.)



                  -=< JEHOVA'S WITNESSES >=-

"In other words, He was the first and direct creation of Jehovah God".  THE KINGDOM IS AT HAND, pg 46,47,49

"Michael, the archangel, is no other than the only begotten Son of God, now Jesus Christ." NEW HEAVENS AND NEW EARTH, pg 30

                              II. "The obvious conclusion is that Satan is the originator of the trinity doctrine"  LET GOD BE TRUE, pg 101

                              III. "His perfect human life with all its rights and prospects, was laid down in death, but not for sin and in punishment."  LET GOD BE TRUE, pg 116

"Thus, makes possible general resurrection for mankind with opportunity for eternal life..."  MAKE SURE OF ALL THINGS, pg 411

                    -=< CHRISTIAN SCIENCE >=-

                              I. "Jesus is the human man and Christ is the divine idea.."  SCIENCE & HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, 473:15,16

"If there had never existed such a person as the Galilean Prophet, it would make no difference to me." FIRST  CHURCH  OF CHRIST SCIENTIST  & MISC., pg 318,319

                              II. "Resurrection is Spiritualization of thought."  SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO SCRIPTURES, 593:9

                              III. Atonement is redefined as "AT-ONE-MENT"

"One sacrifice, however great, is insufficient to pay the debt of sin".  SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO SCRIPTURES, 23:3-4

"The way to escape the misery of sin is to cease sinning. There is no other way."  SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO SCRIPTURES, 327:12,13

                -=< WORLDWIDE CHURCH OF GOD >=-                             ARMSTRONG

                              I. "God is a family,  a kingdom,  not a limited trinity"  THE PLAIN TRUTH, August 1958, pg 17

"The doctrine of the trinity is false, pagan" THE MISSING DIMENSION IN SEX, pg 37

"Before Jesus was conceived by Mary,  He was not the Son of God"  TOMORROW'S WORLD, October 1971, pg 43

                              II. "Jesus Christ was born a Son of God by resurrection from the dead... and as a born Son of God, Christ is God! God Almighty, His Father is God. They are two separate and individual persons."  WHY WERE YOU BORN?, pg 21,22

                              III. "Jesus, alone, of all humans, has so far been saved."  WHY WERE YOU BORN?, pg 11

"A majority of those who die without Christ will be resurrected and gain opportunity to believe during the Millenium.."  PREDESTINATION - DOES THE BIBLE TEACH IT?

                  -=< UNIFICATION CHURCH >=-

Begun by Sun Myung Moon (name given by himself which means "Shining Sun and Moon".  Born in Kwangiu Sangari (North Korea) 1/6/1920. Has the belief of THREE SETS OF ADAM AND EVE. [DIVINE PRINCIPLE]

                              I. "Jesus was born a man - not a man god... Although Jesus was the first man to be obedient to God, a number of failures marred His mission."

A.  The Three Wise Men were to rear Jesus until he took a bride, but they failed to do so.

B.  John the Baptist failed because he did  not  recognize Jesus as the Saviour; and

C.  Jesus (the Second Adam) was not successful in His revolutionary mission to unify all religions and cultures; and

D.  Israel rejected and murdered Him on the cross before he was able to find the second Eve and begin the physical restoration of the Human Race."



                              II. "Jesus  did not come to die on the cross and His crucifixion was against the Will of God"

                              III. "Jesus was an imperfect image of God who with the Holy Spirit brought about spiritual but not physical salvation. When Jesus saw He would not accomplish His mission, He began to preach about His second advent. Jesus' resurrection was spiritual, not bodily and He did not ascend to the Heavenly kingdom but  instead waits in Paradise until another completes His unfinished task of bringing the Kingdom to Earth.

A Third ADAM and a third EVE (no mention of the 2nd EVE) must now come to bring physical salvation. This third ADAM is the Lord of the Second Advent" Moon is very vague on the EXACT identity of this Lord of the Second Advent, but has provided many "hints" as to who that person really is:

1.  He and His wife are the Parents of a New Humanity. Moon requires his followers to refer to him and his wife as TRUE PARENTS"

2.  By a convoluted method of combining numerology and eisegesis" or the "reading a concept INTO the Bible", Moon has calculated that the Lord of the Second Advent was born in 1920 and in North Korea Moon uses a travesty in interpretation of Scripture to explain why he did not come in Power and Glory.



                      -=< SPIRITUALISM >=-

Spiritualism is defined as The science, philosophy and religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact of communication, by means of mediumship, with those who live by the Spirit World.

                              I. "The doctrine of the Trinity seems to have no adherents in advanced circles of the Spirit World.  The Divinity of Christ as co-equal with the Father is universally denied."

"The miraculous conception of Christ is merely a fabulous tale"  SPIRITUALISM, Weisse, pg 141

                              II. "Christ, himself, was nothing more than a medium of high order"  SPIRITUAL TELEGRAPH Number 37

                              III. "There is no atoning value in the death of Jesus Christ." WHATEVER IS, IS RIGHT, Childs

"Salvation by vicarious atonement is a wicked and soul-destroying delusion." ETHICS OF SPIRITUALISM, pg 99

"We affirm the moral responsibility of the individual, and that he makes his own happiness or unhappiness as he obey's or disobey's  NATURE'S physical and spiritual laws"

"Man becomes a spirit after death, doing both evil and good, but he may be saved as he progresses from one spirit level to the next. We affirm that the doorway to reformation is never closed against any human soul, here or hereafter."  DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES Numbers 7 & 8

                        -=< MYSTICISM >=-

Current units found in America:

1. Bahalism Persian Islamic that "feels ALL ways are of God, but Bahal has the truth for this age"

2. Divine Light Mission Guru Maharaji Ji claims to be the Perfect Master, the Lord of the Universe, who has come to uncover the light of knowledge which is within the disciple himself.

3. Krishna Consciousness Devotion to the Hindu God (Out of over 2 million gods to select from) Krishna. Last few years, the movement has come to have "Merry Krishna" and legends of crucifixion of Krishna, etc.

4. TM - Transcendental Meditation Claims to be non-religious but has been proven to be Hindu and uncovered to rely solely on the God of darkness and the teacher of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the present leader who claims that his teacher was a god.

Mandatory initiation rites for TM requires the person to recite a SANSKRIT chant. These have been translated as "bowing down" to various gods of the Hindu Pantheon and and address of submission to the wills of Lord Narayana, Brahma the CREATOR. Each participant is given a "secret" mantra or word to chant in the morning and evening. Each of the words discovered to date are based on the names of the Hindu Gods, and the meditator is to focus on the "Source of Creative Intelligence" within the individual himself.

*** IF YOU INVITE THESE GODS INTO YOUR LIFE, I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THEY WILL ACCEPT THE INVITATION!



                  -=< THE WAY INTERNATIONAL >=-

This was founded by Victor Paul Wierwille. Their, basic fallacy is on the Trinity. Lets look at the Scriptures and see what they have to say about this. God the ONLY GOD (Isaiah 43:10); God has three Distinct personalities (Luke 3:21,22); God the Father (II Peter 1:17); God the Son (John 1:1,14) and God the Holy Spirit (Acts  5:3,4). These three persons making up the One God (Matthew 28:19). However; we must make certain to not confuse the Persons. God the Father is not God the Son and God the Son is not God the Holy Spirit.

A book written by Victor Paul Wierwille, clearly outlines the philosophy regarding Jesus Christ in its very  title, JESUS CHRIST IS NOT GOD. In this book, it is outlined that Jesus Christ was "impregnated in much the same way that a cow is impregnated by a Bull", and that "Joseph had relations with Mary after conception and before the birth". This confused explanation contradicts itself in that the "bull-cow" theory negates a Virgin status and the "relations with Joseph" eliminates Virgin Birth. The way to salvation, according to THE WAY INTERNATIONAL is ONLY in the "public and vocal expression and confession of faith" and "the ONLY visible and audible proof that a man has been born again and filled with the gift from the Holy Spirit is ALWAYS that he speaks in a tongue or tongues".
