DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THEM?
#1 The majority of people are always right. Everybody will finally end up in Heaven. Absolutely NOT TRUE!
Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. [KJV] . . . Jesus' words. The gate that leads to eternal life is called narrow. This doesn't mean that it is hard to become a Christian, but that there is only one way to live eternally with God, and there are only a few that decide to walk that road. The longer we walk that small road, the easier it becomes. Believing in Jesus is the only way to Heaven, because He alone died for our sins and made us right before God (Rom.5:1). Living His way may not be popular, but it is the only true and right way to go.
John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. [KJV] . . . We are the sheep; Jesus is the Shepherd and the Gate and the gate to eternal life. Only He offers access to safety and security. Some people resent that Jesus is the gate, the only way of access to God and Heaven. But it is Truth none the less. Jesus is God's Son, and God's only plan to eternal life in Heaven with Him.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. [KJV] . . . Jesus says He is the only way to God the Father. Some say this way is too narrow. But, the truth is, it is wide enough for the whole world, IF the world chooses to accept it. The Way is open to whosoever.
#2 If I'm good enough, God will allow me into Heaven. NOT TRUE!
Many think the good they have done, will outweigh the bad; and if the good is greater than the bad, Heaven is theirs. WRONG! Some think a "Loving God will never send me to Hell." WRONG! Unless you have accepted Jesus as your Saviour and Lord, you are doomed for the pits of Hell.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [KJV]
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. [KJV]
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. [KJV]
Ephes. 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast. [KJV]
#3 ALL religions lead people to Heaven. NOT TRUE!
The Bible tells us that we must be especially careful in these "last days," for there will be MANY false doctrines.
Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. [KJV] . . . BEWARE of those who sound religious but are motivated by money, fame, or power. They minimize Christ and glorify themselves.
2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. [KJV] . . . False teachers tell people only what they want to hear, twisting Christ's words and His Gospel. They belittle the significance of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. Some claimed that Jesus couldn't be God; others claimed that he couldn' t have been a real man.
1 Timothy 4:1-2 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; [KJV] . . . Don't be impressed by a teacher's style or credentials. Always check out their teaching about Jesus Christ. Their conclusions about Christ show the source of their message.
So how does one tell the true Gospel from a false gospel?
#1. Does the Teaching Distinguish Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Only Way of Salvation? True teaching agrees that Jesus Christ is God's unique Son, and that He became a human being (1 John 4:2). Most cults deny Christ's deity, recognizing Him only as a great teacher or, as Jehovah's Witnesses claim, simply God's first created creature.
#2. Does the Teaching Agree with Scripture? The Bereans were commended because they searched the Scriptures day after day to check up on [their statements] to see if they were really teaching the truth (Acts 17:11). Don't ever take any pastor's or teacher's word as truth. Check it out with God's Word first.
#3. Do Most People Accept as Truth the Teaching? Just because a teaching is highly popular and accepted does not make it a correct teaching. For instance, relativism, or the idea that people can live any way they want, as long as they are true to themself, is a popular belief. God's Word teaches differently. Most often, if the message is really from God, the world won't listen to it (1 John 4:6). The more you study God's Word, the more you will be able to quickly identify the counterfeits.
Aren't Other Religions Just As Good As Christianity?
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. [KJV] . . . Some people say that all religions essentially say and teach the same thing, so they must all be true. If a person is really sincere in what he or she believes, he or she will get to heaven. In reality, all belief systems cannot be true, because they contradict one another. People like to think that all religions blend together beautifully, but they do not. Look at the differences between what the followers of three major world religions believe compared with what Christians believe.
The Existence of a Personal God.
Buddhists deny the existence of a personal God. Hindus believe in two major gods, Vishnu and Siva, as well as in millions of lesser gods. Muslims believe in one God named Allah. Christians believe that God is a Being who created humans in His own image and who loves them and wants to have a personal relationship with them.
The Subject of Salvation.
Buddhists believe salvation is by self-effort only. Hindus believe you achieve salvation by devotion, works, and self-control. Muslims believe that people earn their own salvation and pay for their own sins. Christians believe that Jesus Christ died for their sins. If people turn from their sins and follow Jesus, they can be forgiven and have the hope of being with Jesus in Heaven.
The Person of Jesus Christ.
Buddhists believe that Jesus Christ was a good teacher, though less important then Buddha. Hindus believe that Jesus was just one of many incarnations, or sons of God. Yet they also declare that Christ was not the unique Son of God. He was no more divine then any other man, and He did not die for people's sins. Muslims believe that Jesus Christ was the greatest of the prophets below Muhammad. They also do not believe that Christ died for the sins of the world. Christians believe that Jesus is God as well as man, that He was sinless, and that He died to redeem mankind. You cannot possibly believe in all of the major religious beliefs. Every religion eventually contradicts the claims of Christianity in some way.
