In today's world, the concept of Christian Beliefs is very diverse. There are literally hundreds of denominations that have their own interpretation of what Christians should believe in. Think about it though, how can this be? There is only one Bible and it says:
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).
God made it very clear, very obvious, that you cannot add or subtract from His word:
You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you (Deuteronomy 4:2 ESV).
Everything that I command you, you shall be careful to do. You shall not add to it or take from it (Deuteronomy 12:32).
Then when you add 2 Timothy 3:16 to the mix, how could any words be added be inspired by God and not have its own interpretation.
Finally, Jesus said:
But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men (Matthew 15:9).
Surely, anything that is not in the Bible are doctrines and commandments of men. Some denominations of Christianity though, add their own books, their own Christian beliefs. Here are two of them.
They have added three books which they preach and teach out of:
The Jehovah witnesses, as part of their Christian beliefs, wrote their own translation of the Bible - New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, (2013 Revision). They changed wording wherever necessary to follow their belief that Jesus is not God. For example let's compare John 1:1 in the KJV and the NWT:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John1:1 KJV).
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god (John 1:1 NWT - must click).
So there belief is that the Word is "a god" instead of God. This allows them to leave in the "Word became flesh" in John 1:14 NWT (must click) because "a god" became Jesus (flesh) instead of the one and only God becoming Jesus.
We will look at many Christian beliefs that will only use what is written in the Bible to establish the truth and authenticity of each belief. The subjects covered by the LovingGospel.com are:
