False Belief, Cults And Non-Christian Religions

In the world under the influence of the master deceiver, Satan, false belief abounds. Preconceived ideas, misinformation and half-truths overcloud our vision. With our sinful nature, we would often rather live in a fantasy world than face reality and live in the truth.

Common Sense Promo

Jesus once had many disciples leave Him because of His "hard" sayings. He turned to His closest disciples - the 12 Disciples - and

"...gave the Twelve their chance: 'Do you also want to leave?'

Peter replied, 'Master, to whom would we go? You have the words of real life, eternal life. We've already committed ourselves, confident that you are the Holy One of God.' [John 6:67-69, The Message]

Peter was right for everyone who is not content with an illusionary world. We must be mature enough to face the truth - even if we don't like it. We have to be willing to abandon our cherished ideas if they are shown to be based on a false belief.

Christianity, cults, and non-Christian religions all present ideas of what the fundamental Truth about living and dying is. Everyone and every society is religious on a foundational level [see Master Life and Biblical Law courses]. Everyone has their point of view. The question is: who is right? Who has the Truth, and who is presenting false information?

There are some - who claim to be "open-minded" - who say we should accept all religions. This is pride in the guise of humility because they are really placing themselves as judges above all religions. However, Christianity is not compatible with any cult or non-Christian religion. It states plainly that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation. All other ways are a false belief and lead to death.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." [John 14:6, NIV]

The issue is very important. Other religions are leading people to eternal death [See report: What Is Death?]. Christians are not to be proud or treat people who believe differently with disrespect. All must be treated with honour, but we cannot compromise the Truth of God's Word either. It is literally a matter of life or death - eternal heaven or eternal hell. It is serious.

The articles on this page will examine some of the doctrines of false belief in non-Christian religions and some of the false belief within Christianity in the light of what the Bible teaches. Only the Bible is the infallible guide to Truth.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

[Ps. 119:105].
