                        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

                -=< WORLDWIDE CHURCH OF GOD >=-
                            ARMSTRONG

                              II.

                  -=< 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 and 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”.
