Another Jesus by Jeffrey Brodsky

The Jesus of the Cults…

Another Jesus…

Today’s new spirituality does include Jesus, but he is not the Jesus of Scripture. He is another Jesus who is appreciated by mystics and Gnostics alike. He is accepted by the other religions as a great teacher, an enlightened spiritual master, but not the Son of God, God in the flesh, the only Savior from our sins, and the only way to the Father. He needs to be something other than the bibles Jesus to be accepted by the masses.

People today choose Jesus to be their spirit-guide. As they visualize him, he speaks to them and gives them wisdom and guidance. They claim, “I follow the words of Jesus.”

The Jehovah’s Witnesses also have another Jesus, one who is an angel who became a man.

The Mormons Jesus is similar in that he is also an angel. A Spirit child of Elohim who is in the class of Spirit. He is the Spirit brother of the Lucifer who became the Devil. That we all were the same in the spirit in our preexistence on earth before we embodied. Mormonism (Joseph Smith): “Christ is the firstborn spirit Son in the eternal family, and while yet in pre-existence he advanced and progressed and became like the Father in power and intelligence; that is, he became a God.”“

It has become increasingly important to see that those who claim to be Christian or represent God are presenting to their followers another Jesus. These are only a few references as a guideline of what the Bible teaches.

What the Bible says:

Isaiah 9:6
Jeremiah 23:5-6
Isaiah 63:8
John 8:23, 58
John 5:18
John 20:28
John 10:14-16
John 1:1-14
1 Peter 1:1
Titus 2:13
Colossians 1:16-17
1 Tim.3:16

No other person has been opinionated by the religious community, not Buddha, nor Mohammed nor Krishna. Why the various opinions? It’s a life or death matter when it comes to the one called the Son of God. Everyone will need to make a decision on who he is. Unfortunately many deny what He said and the apostles taught Him.

A.R.E Association for Research and Enlightenment (Edgar Cayce):

“He is an example for man, and only as a man, for He lived only as a man, He died as a man.”

“When did the knowledge come to Jesus that he was to be the savior of the world? When he fell in Eden, in Adam. He brought sin.”

The Bahai Faith (The Bab; Baha’u’llah):

“Jesus was not the only begotten Son of God come down from Heaven, crucified and resurrected, nor the unique Saviour.”

“Many Christians are surprised to find that a new messenger from God has already come, saying that he is the return of Christ.”

Islam:

Sura 43:59 “Jesus was no more than a mortal…)

Surat al Nisa 4:157-158 “…we slew the Messiah Jesus son of Mary. Allah’s messenger… they slew him not nor crucified.”

Church Universal and Triumphant (Mark and Elizabeth Prophet):

“Jesus was both the actual and symbolical representative of this Christ Self. Jesus was the example. The one who self-realized the Christ Mind and was at one with It at all times.”

“Jesus himself was not the only begotten Son of the Father.”

Eckankar (Paul Twitchell):

“…do not put Him [Jesus] in a special category, for all saviors and prophets who came to earth to help mankind did their part and passed on to the glory of the heavenly kingdom…”

The Foundation of Human understanding (Roy Masters):

“…you must not have any concepts of what Christ is like or God is like. It all must be an inward revelation process…”

The Gurdjieff Foundation (Gurdfieff):

“I hate your Jesus, poor Jewish boy.”

Course in miracles- (Helen Schucman):

“Jesus is a man, who is like all other men, and the Christ idea, which all men possess and must eventually demonstrated. He becomes the pattern for all of us. Jesus the man was used by the Christ to demonstrate the illusion of the world.”

“…Jesus became what all of you must be …Is he the Christ? O yes, along with you. “

“Is he God’s only Helper? No, indeed. For Christ takes many forms with different names…”

”The Son of God … is not Jesus but our combined Christ consciousness. . .”The name Jesus refers to one who was a man but who saw the face of Christ in all his brothers…. So he became identified with Christ, a man no longer at one with God.”

The Masons (Manly Hall):

“Manly Hall who started the Masons refers to Jesus as… the Solar Diety.”

“Jesus of Nazareth had attained a level of consciousness, of perfection, that has been called by various names: cosmic consciousness, soul regeneration, philosophic initiation, spiritual illumination.”

Gurus…

Agne Yoga Fellowship (Swami Kriyananda):

“What is Christ? St. Simeon the new theologian wrote, ‘I move my hand, and Christ moves, who is my hand.”

Self-Realization Fellowship (Paramahansa Yogananda):

“…in Christian Scriptures it [Christ] is called the ‘only begotten son, it is the universal consciousness, oneness with God, manifested by Jesus, Krishna, and other avatars.”

Sri Chinmoy Centers (Sri Chinmoy):

“To say that Christ is the Savior and the only way to salvation is a mistake. … He laughs when His followers say He is the only savior.”

Yogananda:

“Man reincarnates on earth until he has consciously regained his status as a son of God.”

The Divine Life Society Integral Yoga Institute (Sivananda/ Satchidananda):

“Remember that Christ is not a person, It’s an experience. Like Nirvana or Buddha. it’s an experience…”

Sri Yukteswar:

“Theologians have interpreted Christ’s words in such passages as “I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). Jesus meant, never that he was the sole Son of God, but that no man can attain the unqualified, absolute, the transcendent Father beyond creation, until he has first manifested the ‘Son’ or activating Christ Consciousness within creation. Jesus, who had achieved entire oneness with that Christ consciousness, identified himself with it inasmuch as his own ego had long since been dissolved.”

3 HO Sikhism (Yogi Bhajan):

“Jesus was a man of God only who had to become qualified for his know…if Joseph was his father and his mother created “her son to really be a Christ, but not a savior.”

Vedanta: (Swami Probhavananda):

“…alleges we ‘cannot accept Christ as the only Son of God,’ Those who insist on regarding the life and teachings of Jesus as unique are bound to have great difficulty in understanding them.”

Sai Baba Society (Sathya Sai Baba):

“The inner mystery of the incarnation [is] God incarnating in all. All are One; the One is All.”

Anthroposophy (Rudolph Steiner):
“[Jesus] … must be designated in the truest sense of the word as a mere man.“

Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism (Diasaku Ikeda):

“The doctrines of the divinity and the resurrection of Christ are outside the province of rational thought …. Christians are schizophrenic.”

The Masonic Lodge:

A former Mason reports “Freemasonry carefully excludes the Lord Jesus Christ from the lodge and chapter, repudiates His mediatorship, rejects His atonement, denies and disowns His Gospel, frowns upon His religion and His church, ignores the Holy Spirit…”

“Christ, teaching the Religion of Love, was crucified, that it might become a Religion of Hate.”

“But the Chief of the Empire of Darkness caused Him to be crucified by the Jews. Still He suffered in appearance only…”

Those who claim Christianity

Iglesia Ni Cristo (Felix Manalo):

“If there is any verse which people claim proves the alleged deity of Christ, this verse has been wrongly interpreted by the people.”

“Colossians1:15 states very clearly, Christ is ‘the firstborn of every creature,’ and is therefore not the creator.”

“The scriptures do not teach that Christ is the creator of all things.”

”We now affirm that John.1:1 does not call Jesus Christ God…and the Bible does not teach the doctrine of the Trinity.”

Jehovah’s Witnesses (Charles Taze Russell):

“There is Scriptural evidence for concluding that Michael was the name of Jesus Christ before he left heaven and after his return.”

”Michael the great prince is none other than Jesus Christ himself.”

Michael the archangel is no other than the only begotten son of God, now Jesus Christ..”

Christian Science (Mary Baker Eddy):

“Jesus Christ is not God, as Jesus Himself declared, but is the Son of God.”

“Jesus is the name of the man who, more than all other men, has presented Christ, the true idea of God.”

“Jesus is the human man, and Christ is the divine idea; hence the duality of Jesus the Christ.”

“Jesus means “the highest human corporeal concept of the divine idea…”

The Christian Spiritual Alliance (Roy Eugene Davis):

“Jesus was not the only begotten.”

Oneness Pentecostals:

“The Son of God existed from all eternity only as a plan in the mind of God.”

“…the role of the son is temporary and not eternal.”

“The Son of God refers to the humanity of Jesus.”

The Way International (Paul Wierwille): (Author of Jesus is NOT God”)

“We, as well as Jesus Christ, were with God in His foreknowledge, but not in existence, before the world began.”

“Jesus did not exist except in the mind of God before conception in Mary’s womb, and “Jesus Christ the Son of God, was made by God.”

Unity School of Christianity (Charles and Myrtle Fillmore):

“Most of our religious beliefs are based on the [erroneous] idea that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God.”
Unitarian Universalism:

“They do not regard him as a supernatural creature, the literal son of God who was miraculously sent to earth as part of an involved plan for the salvation of human souls.”

Mormonism… The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Joseph Smith):

“..that Lucifer, the son of the morning, is our elder brother and the brother of Jesus Christ.”

“…Jesus, our elder brother, was begotten in the flesh by the same character that was in the garden of Eden, and who is our Father in Heaven.”

“Jesus got married at Cana and had many wives Martha, Mary and others he also had many children.”

The Unification Church (Sun Myung Moon): (The Moonies)

“He can by no means be God Himself.”

“It is a great error to think Jesus was God Himself. Jesus is no different from other men.”

“We must understand that this (John 8.58) also does not signify that Jesus was God Himself .Jesus on earth was a man no different from us except for the fact that He was born without original sin.”

Word faith movement:

John Avanzini:

“Jesus had a nice house, a big house.”

“Jesus was handling big money.”

“God is a spirit-being with a body, complete with eyes, and eyelids, ears, nostrils, a mouth, hands and fingers, and feet.”

“Satan conquered Jesus on the Cross and took His spirit to the dark regions of hell.”

“Jesus said he was I AM… and I am like him… I am a little I AM.”

Benny Hinn:

“What was the appearance of God the Father? Like that of a man…God has the likeness of fingers and hands and a face.”

“Have you been begotten? So was He. Don’t let anyone deceive you. Jesus was reborn. “

“God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost – three separate individuals, one in essence, one in work – and, may I add, each one of them possesses His own spirit-body. “

Hagin:

“…speaking of Jesus “his spirit and inner man went to hell in my place. Can’t you see that?”

“PHYSICAL DEATH WOULDN’T REMOVE YOUR SINS. He tasted death for every man. He’s talking about spiritual death.”

New Age writers:

Lola Davis:

Lola Davis is the New Age “Christ” resides on a different plane of consciousness from that which we experience. There he directs the Masters, “a group of advanced souls, most of them discarnate … known variously as the White Brotherhood, The Great White Lodge, the Masters of Wisdom, the Hierarchy, and the Angels around the Throne.”

Matthew Fox:

“The Cosmic Christ is the divine pattern that connects in the person of Jesus Christ (but by no means is limited to that person).”

“Divinity is found in all creatures. The divine name from Exodus 3:14, “ Am who I Am, is appropriated by Jesus who shows us how to embrace our own divinity. The Cosmic Christ is the “I am” in every creature.”

Barbara Marx Hubbard:

“Who is this child? This child is the Christ-child within who has emerged victorious, fully born, incarnated as every member of the human race who evolves.”

“This UNITY OF THE ELECT is the key to the transformation from Adam to Christ, from Homo sapiens to HOMO UNIVERSALIS, from creature to co-creator, from self-centered to whole centered beings.”

David and Naomi Rice:

“The Christ is within each and everyone of God’s creatures.”

“The Christ is the spark of pure energy of God that has always existed within the individual manifestation of God in in many forms, but has been forgotten.”

David Spangler:

“Christ is the same force as Lucifer.”

“Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into a New Age.”

…each of us in some way is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation, for it is an invitation into the New Age.”

Tara Center:

“THE CHRIST IS IN THE WORLD. A great World Teacher for people of every religion and no religion. A practical man with solutions to our problems. He loves ALL humanity… Christ is here, my friends. Your Brother walks among you.”

Benjamen Crème:

“…given to him by his master, Lord Maitreya, you and I are not God and Jesus did not claim to be God.”

“The Christ is the Master ‘Of all the Masters’ , but He is not God, and never claimed to be God.”

Rosicrucianism (H. Spencer Lewis):

“Nowhere in the teachings and practices of Jesus can we find the least intimation that His great system was intended to bring salvation to the physical body of man. Even the salvation of the soul was not taught by Jesus, and all references in the Christian Bible to the salvation of the soul constitute a misinterpretation, a misunderstanding, of the secret principles that Jesus taught.”

“The Son is the highest initiate of the Sun.”

“The Christ spirit which entered the body of Jesus when Jesus Himself vacated it, was a ray from the cosmic Christ. We may follow Jesus back in His previous incarnations and can trace his growth to the present day.”

Science of Mind (Ernest Holmes):

“Jesus is the name of a man. Christ means the Universal Principle of Divine Sonship.”

Scientology (L. Ron Hubbard):

“Neither Lord Buddha nor Jesus Christ were OT’s (that is, Operation Thetans, enlightened beings) according to the evidence. They were just a shade above clear (that is, relatively low on the Scientology scale of spiritual advancement).”

Pierre Teilhard De Chardin:

“If a Christ is to be completely acceptable as an object of worship, he must be presented as the savior of the idea and reality of evolution.”

“I believe that the Messiah whom we await, whom we all without any doubt await the universal Christ; that is to say, the Christ of evolution.”

Theosophy (Helena. P Blavatsky):

“Nowhere throughout the New Testament is Jesus found calling himself God, or anything higher than ‘a son of God,’ the son of a ‘Father,’ common to all.”

Transcendental Meditation (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi):

“When Christ said, Be still and know that I am God. He also meant ‘Be still and know that you are God.’ ”
“and, “I don’t think Christ ever suffered on the cross…. and those who count upon the suffering, it is a wrong interpretation of the life of Christ and the message of Christ. It is wrong.”

Lucis Trust (Alice Bailey):

“The Incarnation, which is for popular Christianity synonymous with the historical birth and earthly life of Christ, is for the mystic not only this but also a Perpetual cosmic and personal process.”

Urantia Book:

“Jesus Christ is not identified as being uniquely God the Son, second Person of the Holy Trinity. Instead he is Michael, one of many God the Sons.”

The Michael of Nebadon is the `only-begotten Son.”

“In other words, Jesus (Michael) is the Son of the Son of God and the Father in the sense that when these two beings had a simultaneous original thought for the 611,121st time, Jesus (Michael) was begotten.
