There Are Many False Religions!
Please contact us if you have any questions or comments or would just like some encouragement?
I am sure most all of us have been introduced to a Jehovah’s Witness at some point in time. I have and even talked to a few in lengthy conversations to discover that they were very nice people! They have studied up about what they believe, and travel in two. The big problem is that they follow their own man-made Bible, not the inspired word of God Bible.
If you are secure in your Christian faith, do not be afraid to talk with a Jehovah’s Witness, but have your Bible in hand, for their literature is similar but entirely different. Share your faith with them in hopes that they will learn and understand the truth of God from the Bible. ~ Bill Greguska

Who To Believe And Why?
I first would like to say that each religion (Catholic, Morman, New Age, Bahá’í Faith, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, etc.) all have many kind people involved yet are deceived in what they believe.
Being a Christian, God instructs us in Luke 10:27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
So in love, I would like to take you one step further, for their sake, and the sake of those who they influence into their thinking. They are following a wide road that they think will get them to their goal, but they are being deceived. To share the Gospel with them the next opportunity you get, but do it with love in your heart! If you speak down to them with disrespect or have a condemning attitude towards them, you will never be able to influence them or point them to the Lord.
Are False Religions A Problem?
Jehovah Witness people even thought that they are actually an occult, do one thing that many Christian friends of mind do not do, which is to go out by two and share their faith (even though it is not Biblical) their practice many Christians who actually believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior would benefit from learning that one thing that the Jehovah Witnesses practice.
When two Jehovah Witnesses come to your door, after watching this video below, you will be equipped to ask them two critical questions and share a vital scripture with them. I would encourage you to welcome in a Jehovah’s Witness to talk with them at any opportunity you receive, BUT do not let them control the conversation.
Be friendly to them and show them respect since God created them just like God created you. Hopefully, you can plant some seeds to make them think about their salvation.
The Founder is Mary Baker Eddy who plagiarised the ideas and writings of others to produce the book “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.”
Jehovah Witnesses –
Distributors of the Watchtower magazine. The founder Charles Russell was a man of questionable character and was charged with fraudulent activities by the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. In 1913 his wife sued for divorce on the grounds of adultery, conceit, egotism, and domination.
(also called Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) – The Book of Mormon is claimed by many to be based on a novel called “Manuscript Found.”
Joseph Smith claimed that the book of Mormon was a new revelation and based on his translation of Golden plates that he found in 1827 in a hill near Palmyra. Following the translation, these plates were alleged to be taken up the Heaven. There are no reliable witnesses to the existence of these plates. Since its first edition in 1830, there have been 2000 changes to the alleged revelation from God. A Holy Book with 2000 Mistakes!
Children of God
(renamed the “The Family”) Founded by Spiritist David Berg. A profoundly sad and perverse organization with children forced into sexual acts with adults with ongoing emotional damage. Stay well clear of this group. Whenever you hear of a Sect that is promoting unBiblical sexual acts, it’s time to stay well away. “Children of Satan” would be a better name to use.
Church of Scientology
(founded by Ron J Hubbard who allegedly made a fortune from his writings). Several celebrities including John Travolta and Tom Cruise are Scientologists. Sadly John and Tom don’t yet understand the reality of what Jesus Christ has done for them and unfortunately would prefer to follow the teachings of a cunning conman who will lead them to hell.
The New Age Movement
Divine Light Mission
Hare Krishna Movement
Transcendental Meditation ( from foundations in Hindu teachings )
The Unification Church (also called the Moonies)
The problems with Buddhism are significant:
(1) Buddhist scriptures that are attributed to its founder Siddhartha Gautama were written approximately 400 years after his (Buddha’s) death. The fact that Buddhism had split into opposing sects at the time of writing means there is no confirmation to say these were the words of Gautama.
(2) The Buddhist teachings are attributable to one man so if he’s wrong then the whole religion is false. There are no independent witnesses to the revelation. The Book of Mormon suffers the same problem.
(Followers are Muslims (or Moslems) -Islam is a major world religion with over 500 million followers worldwide. Mohammed is their prophet, born AD570 in Mecca. Mohammed received frightening revelations in a cave in Mount Hira during AD610, and these became the basis of the Koran (Qur’ an). Of concern was that during this period Muhammed had violent seizures and foaming at the mouth. These revelations may have been demonic. Sadly Muslims fail to acknowledge Jesus Christ as central to salvation.
Mohammed is a false prophet. Salvation is through Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for our sins on the cross, not by following the teaching in the Koran or Allah, a false god. Don’t be deceived and misled by this religion. Many Muslims are very earnest and devout, but sadly they are missing the joy of a relationship with Jesus Christ. If Muslims worshiped the same God as Christians, why is there such hatred toward Christians in many countries around the world? The reason is that they don’t worship the God of Abraham, Issac, and all Christians.
