I thought this book review to be interesting in light of the recent posts by our young friend espertina.
To say that the “second Jesus” represents a “specific branch of religion,” shows a complete disregard for the right for “the Son of God” to speak boldly to His own creation and declare to it the mysteries of the ages. All this, the Son of God did, while warning of the impending judgment on this world and pleading for repentance from sin. Jesus Christ laid down His life on the cross and rose again that whoever believes on Him – for who He declares Himself to be – should not perish but have everlasting life. Without Jesus, we are doomed to destruction. Jesus did not represent, “a specific branch of religion.” He came to show us true religion and undefiled. He did not come to show us “a” way. He came to tell us that He is “THE Way” and that no one can come to the One True God, apart from Himself. In doing this, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to declare all other religions void, rather than valid.
As “a child in India”, Chopra was “well acquainted” with thousands of deities. Jesus Christ did not come to say that worshipping false gods was ‘alright’. He came to show us the Father.
As ideal as all this may sound, the third Jesus is not the God of the Bible. He is an invention of men who seek to subject the deity of God and His right to rule in righteousness to their own interpretation of righteousness and justice. There is a hell and God our loving Father will throw people into it if they cannot orwill not learn to walk in love. A loving God does not allow sin to inhabit eternity – for sin brings pain, sorrow and death. Why would God want the pain and sorrows of today to be perpetuated throughout eternity? THAT would truly be hell!
