There is a saying that goes like this: he or she who doesn’t learn their heresy is doomed to repeat it. A heresy is a damnable belief that is outside of the boundaries of Christian teaching. It’s not a difference of opinion on the form of baptism. Did you know that the major false religious and Christian heresies make their deepest mistakes on the nature of God?
- The Mormons, rightly believing that there are three divine persons, deny that He is One God—they think each person is an individual God! (Deut 6:4).
- The Jehovah Witnesses, believing that the Father is God, deny that Christ is God thinking he is merely the chief angel of God. (John 10:30; Acts 20:28; 2 Peter 1:1)
- The Jews and the Muslims, rightly believing that there is only one God, deny that God is Three co-equal co-eternal divine persons in one eternal essence. (John 6:27; John 1:1; Acts 5:3-4).
- Oneness Pentecostals, rightly believing that there is one God, deny that God is three persons instead saying that the One God has three different roles. God is not merely acting in three different ways, or has three different jobs. The Father is a real person who is not the Son; and the Son is not the Spirit; and the Spirit is not the Father ((John 14:26; 15:26; 16:7)
Embrace the truth of this teaching and worship God as he really is. No need to make up different language or come up with different illustrations—let God be true and all men liars! (Rom 3:4)
