Reincarnation

Today millions of intelligent people believe in the idea of reincarnation.
This is the idea that after death the soul or life-force will eventually
find its way into another body. There are many different and contradictory
theories concerning how reincarnation works. One thing is sure however.
If reincarnation is true, then death is not final. It is only the gateway
to a new existence. Death, then, is therefore also relatively safe. There
is no need to fear hell-fire or eternal judgment.

Paganism

I understand that paganism is a growing religious force in the world today. Also, there are quite a number of forms of paganism – Druidism, Wicca, Witchcraft  just to name a few. Perhaps you feel that your rituals and other spiritual activities will help to save the Earth from self-destruction. You may distrust Christianity for quite a few reasons. You can't stand the doctrine of eternal punishment, and you probably feel that most Monotheistic religions, especially Christianity, are a hindrance to spiritual development.

Paganism and Occult Religions

Soon after the fall of man, people began to traffic with the fallen angels and demons rule over the affairs of this world directly or indirectly, by the consent of man. There are many who have sought power to get what they want by serving these spirits. In some cases the power is obtained through sacrifices, in other cases, through religious or magic rituals, or a combination of both.

These fallen angels, these evil spirits, are masters of deception.

Problems with the Book of Mormon

By Dean Maurice Helland

PREFACE

The writing of this paper is the fulfillment of a desire the author
has had ever since he studied his way out of the Book of Mormon over 20
years ago. Many of the things which appear here in documented form he already
had discovered on his own.

Mormon Religion

The Mormon religion was founded by Joseph Smith around 1830 in the United States of America. It is a fast growing religious movement which claims more than 12 million adherents worldwide as of 2006 (1). Mormonism teaches that historical Christianity is totally apostate, and God raised up Joseph Smith as a prophet to restore it. In addition to using the Bible (which they believe is totally inadequate by itself to tell us what we need to know), mormons believe that the “revelations” “discovered” by Joseph Smith which came to be written down as the “Book of Mormon” are Scripture.

Many Ways to God or Many Errors in the Name of Religion?

The world’s religions have different ideas of divinity, different answers to the what, why and hows of human existence and salvation, and exhort people to believe different things. It has been popular amongst some to claim that there are many ways to God. But even that statement has no meaning if we don’t know what we mean by “God”.

The world’s religions and mystical philosophies constantly contradict one another on every important point. For example:

  • Eastern religions teach that “everything” is God and through meditation we can come to realise our inherent divinity.
  • Quran proves Jesus Died

    The Bible says that Jesus died for our Sins….
    Isaiah 53:5 But He (Christ) was pierced for our
    transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the
    punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by
    his wounds we are healed.,…
    The Bible tells us Christ was put to death for our mistakes
    and for our sins. By this sacrifice of pure and sinless blood
    we are made righteous with a Holy and Perfect God.

    Matthew 27:35 And when they had crucified Him, they divided
    up His garments among themselves, casting lots;…….
    Again the Bible confirms that Jesus was put to Death.

    Quranic Inspiration

    For muslims, the Qu’ran is the Word of God. It is considered to be a miracle
    of inspiration such as only God could produce. For muslims, the Qu’ran
    is so holy that it cannot be truly translated. Only the original in arabic
    is considered to be truly the Qu’ran. When an arabic scholar does his very
    best to “translate” the Qu’ran, what he actually produces, in the minds
    of muslim scholars, is an “interpretation”.

    Quranic Contradictions

    I really don’t suppose that this will convince any muslim that the Quran is flawed, but one never knows. I believe that man’s intellect is fallen, and has the capacity for infinite rationalisation and self-deception. Religion blinds the best of us. It can stare you in the face but if you believe something enough, the facts won’t make a dent in it.

    There are a number of apparent contradictions in the Quran. Whether they can be resolved is a matter for clever philosophers, the kind who can use a globe to prove that the earth is flat.

    The Integrity of the Bible according to the Qu’ran

    In reading the best English interpretations of the Qu’ran I see many
    surahs honoring the Tawrat and the Injil, which Christians refer to as
    the Old Testament and the New Testament. For example:


      “He hath revealed unto thee (Muhammed) the Scripture with truth, confirming
      that which was (revealed) before it, even as He revealed the Torah and
      the Gospel aforetime, for a guidance to mankind; and hath revealed the
      Criterion (of right and wrong). Lo! those who disbelieve the revelations
      of Allah, theirs will be heavy doom.
