In Romans 10, Paul is addressing the Jews, who are of Israel. He could see that they desired to know God, but not according to His knowledge. And since they did not know God’s will, they went about establishing their own righteousness of God. Paul wrote, “brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” (Romans 10:1-4) The same can be said with many different religious groups today, including Catholicism, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and others. Every false religion is similar in that the church leaders are ignorant to God’s teachings, and therefore, they go about establishing their own man-made teachings. Catholics teach that it is ok to have idols of Saints, and Mary, that Mary should be prayed tom and that she is a mediator between us and God. However, we know that through the Bible, idolatry is not allowed, only God is to be prayed to and worshiped, and that Jesus is the mediator between us and God. We will get to the other two false religions next, but this does not exclude other religions that are also false.
Mormons teach that the Father has a body of flesh and bones, there is eternal marriage in heaven, man-made temples today, and many more false teachings. As for the Bible, it teaches us that the Father is spirit and that we ought to worship Him in spirit and truth. That there is no marriage in heaven, for we are like unto the angels who are not given in marriage. We are also the temple of God, and that God does not dwell in temples made with hands. As for Jehovah’s Witnesses, they teach that Jesus was Michael the archangel and not God, that the trinity is false, that hell is not a place where people suffering, but where people go when they die. There are other false teachings in their cult, like Catholicism and Mormonism. But according to what I just mentioned, the Bible is clear that Jesus is the first and the last, the Alpha and the Omega, who is God. It also teaches that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are three persons in one God. Hell is also taught and that it is a place of torment. Therefore, what people of these false religions need to know is that all truth can be found in the Bible. It is when we are not using the Bible and checking our beliefs with it, that our own beliefs become doctrines of men, instead of doctrines from God. Now, if you are a part of any one of those religions I just mentioned, then do yourself a favor and start reading the Bible daily, while checking your beliefs with what it says. Then, please do leave what is false behind for Christ.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that we will begin to be anxiously engaged with learning from You, instead of filling up our minds with things from people. So many people are leading people astray, while those that are led away by these false teachings don’t even realize it most times. Therefore, it is important that we are being led by Your hand and not people who are really wolves in sheep’s clothing. In these false religions, the buildings often appear so well made and beautiful on the outside. However, from the inside, of which the teachings come from, they are very dark and wicked therein. And so we have millions of people being led on a path to destruction. In death do they wake up in hell and wonder why it is for them. This is very sad, God, for I know that You wish every person could be saved and go to heaven when they die. But one thing has to happen first, as You have taught in the Bible, that we must submit our lives to You, God. If our minds are still set apart for the things of this world and not to live for You, then we will not want to go to heaven when we die anyway. People may think they do, but really they are wanting things that are the total opposite while in the flesh. And so we, as Your true believers, go forth and run to You, Jesus. Nothing in this life is worth keeping if it is only going to grieve the Holy Spirit. If there are any false teachings in our belief system, we are willing to give it all up to follow You completely. This is my desire and I pray that more people will make the same decision today. Because I am for You, I am not against You, Lord. I love You, God. Amen.
