CULT CATALOG OF THE "OTHER" JESUS

Ahmadiyya Movement - Founder: Hazat Mirza. "Jesus was not a
partner in the Godhead, as was not Jacob. Both of them were
beloved prophets of God" (True Christianity and How it Leads
to Islam).

American Atheist Center - Founder: Madalyn Murray O'Hair.
"There is no God, thus Jesus is not the Son of God."

Ananda Marga Yoga - Leader: Shrii Shrii Anandamurti. Jesus is
considered God, but there is no Trinity. "Be constantly
absorbed in the thought of God and you too will become God."
(Baba's Grace-Discourses of Shrii Shrii Anandamurti).

Anthroposophical Society - Leader:Rudolf Steiner.
"According to Steiner, Jesus of Nazareth was just an ordinary
man until, at the age of thirty, he received the Christ-
Essence during his baptism at the Jordan" (Spiritual
Counterfeits Project in Berkeley, CA : Letter, Feb,
1977) Steiner was an occult medium who interpreted
the Bible through clairvoyance.

Arica - Leader: Oscar Ichazo. "The point of Arica is
enlightenment, man's transcending from the state of ego into
what's known as the void. This is a state of consciousness
. . . Its not God. It's God Consciousness." Aricans blend
physical exercise and meditation. God is formless, thus Christ
cannot be God (Awakening Ways to Psycho-Spiritual Growth, C.
William Henderson).

Assemblies of Yahweh - "John 2:19) is sometimes presented as
evidence that Yahshua is the Almighty, that He is co-equal
with His Father, and that He had the power to resurrect Himself.
This, of course, is a false, trinitarian concept" (The Sacred
Name Broadcaster, Lincoln Frost). "We find the
trinitarian doctrine to be foreign to the Inspired Scriptures"
(Doctrine #5).

Baha'i World Faith - Baha'i, an independent world
religion based on "a unique revelation of God," traces its
roots to an early division within Islam. God, called by
different names, is one but unknowable. Christ was a
"manifestation" of God and a way to God, but not the ONLY way to
God.

Bawa Muhaiyaddeen Fellowship - Leader: Bawa Muhaiyaddeen. "God
is a secret and a mystery, but man is also a mystery. Only
God can see God. So if man is to see God, he must become God.
Man becomes God, and God becomes man. Its no big deal,"
says Bawa (Psychology, April,1976).

Black Muslim - Leader: Wallace D. Fard (Allah-God) and Elijah
Poole (Elijah Muhammad - Fard's prophet). Also called "The
Nation of Islam." Elijah Muhammad said that Jesus was "only a
prophet and not the equal of Moses and Muhammad, and His
religion was Islam, not the Christianity of the Pope
of Rome" (Pittsburgh Courier, 1959).

Buddhism (Hinayana Buddhism and Mahayanna Buddhism) -
"In Hinayana Buddhism there is no god as we conceive of God .
. . The followers of Mahayanna Buddhism tend to deify Buddha.
Their idea of God; However, has no such comprehensive
attributes as has the Christian God" (Religions in a
changing World, Howard F. Vos) This eliminates the possibility
of Jesus as a deity.

Cabala (Kabbalah) - Cabala is a system of Jewish Mystical
thought which originated in Southern France and Spain in the
12th and 13th centuries. The Cabala doctrine of deity
recognizes only two deities - the hidden god, the infinite
great divine Nothing; and the dynamic god of religious
experience (Spiritual Counterfeits Project).

Center for Spiritual Awareness - Leader: Roy Eugene
Davis. Also called: Christian Spiritual Alliance. Buddha, Sri
Krishna, and Jesus were enlightened souls. "The second coming of
Jesus is a fanciful hope. The awakening of individuals
to the realization of their own Christ-nature is what will
liberate man and transform society" (Darshan: The vision of
Light, Roy E. Davis). Jesus was a man who reached
Christ-consciousness and was on earth to share the truth of this
consciousness.

Children of God - Leader:David Brandt Berg (Moses David).
Started as a fundamentalist counter-culture ministry, but
degenerated into belief in the occult, reincarnation,
and sexual permissiveness. The COG believes that Berg is
the ONLY end-time prophet; that the COG IS the remnant church
of the last days; that its authority is absolute; and
in the use of blasphemy, profanity, vulgarity, and
pornography (Moody Monthly July/August 1977).

Christian Scientist - Founder: MAy Baker Eddy. Jesus was a
mere man who demonstrated the Christ (i.e. a divine idea). It
doesn't matter whether Christ ever existed, and His blood
doesn't cleanse from sin (Science and Health with Key to the
Scriptures, The First of Christ Scientist and Miscellany, both by
Mary baker Eddy).

Church of the Living Word - Leader: John Robert Stevens.
Also called:THE WALK. "Jesus Christ came to participate in
humanity and make the bridge of communication so that
God could communicate himself into our very beings.
What He is, we become" (The Word Became Flesh, a Living
Word Publication). According to Stevens, this begins with
contemporary revelations which make the the Living Word
(Christ) to the World. Although some acknowledgement
is made of the inspiration and authority of the
Scripture, in practice the source of teaching is current
revelation, not the Bible. Stevens considers himself God's
chief intercessor.

Church Universal and Triumphant - Leader: Elizabeth Claire
Prophet. Also called: Summit International or Summit
Lighthouse. The Church Universal and Triumphant is a
mixture of eastern religions, Theosophy, Christianity, and
many other things. Elizabeth is recognized as one of
the two witnesses of Revelation 11. Her late husband and
founder, Mark, is considered a man that had the Christ
Consciousness within him. He was one of many who achieved the
"God self" witness.

Dhyana-Mandiram - Leader: Pandit Usharbudh. "God is
essentially formless . . . God may manifest Himself-Herself-
Itself in any form, at any time, at any place, on any planet . .
. Jesus may be accepted as one of the many incarnations of God"
(Hinduism: An Introduction, Pandit Usharbudh and Yorke
Crompton).

Divine Light Mission - Leader: Guru Maharaj Ji. Guru Ji
is the Living Perfect Master. Jesus was the Perfect Master
of His time, but Ji has replaced Him. Ji claims the world
needs the knowledge of Reality, and he claims to be the
source of that knowledge and of peace in the world, according
to David J. Hesselgrave, Trinity Evangelical Divinity
School.

ECKANKAR - Leader: Sri Darwin Gross. ECKANKAR says it is the
wellspring and essence of all religions, philosophies, and
sacred doctrines. It claims to be the way to God-realization
via the "ancient science of soul travel." ECKANKAR
makes the biblical God into a demon who as creator is
responsible for the evil in the world and defines Christ as "god
as all men are god" ("Eck World News, December, 1978, page 13).

Findhorn Foundation University of Light - Leaders: Peter and
Eileen Caddy. "The Devic (Deva is a being of light) would
emphasize that man has to do one thing to reverse the trend of
events on the planet: he has to recognize within himself
the Divinity and wholeness of which he is a part" (The
Magic of Findhorn, Paul Hawken). They separate Jesus and
Christ and appear to be panthiestic. The group, a form
of spiritism, became famous because the Findhorn community
in Scotland has a producing garden near the Arctic Circle
which is supposedly taken care of by plant spirits.

Freemasonry - ". . . We tell the sincere Christian that
Jesus of Nazareth was but a man like us" ("Morals and
Dogmas" by Albert Pike in How to Respond to the Lodge).

Hare Krishna - Founder: Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Also called:
International Society of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).
To the Krishnaite, the world is not real; its illusion.
Salvation comes by chanting the name of their god, Hare Krishna,
at least 1,728 times daily. They believe in the literal
interpretation of the Hindu scriptures, but they also accept the
Bible as one of the scriptures. They consider Jesus one of their
gurus.

"I AM" MOVEMENT - Leader: Guy Ballard (Pen Name: Godfrey Ray
King). Jesus, a man, developed the I AM/GOD SELF within
himself. This almighty I Am presence is a pure reservoir of
energy stationed over the head which can be drawn on at will.
Jesus is seen as one of the many Ascended Masters. They do not
recognize the Trinity. This cult is an off-shoot of the
Theosophical Society. It modern form is called the Summit
Lighthouse or Church Universal and Triumphant. However,
the "I Am" movement still exist as an independent organization
(The 'I Am' Discourses, Saint Germain Press).

Iglesia Ni Cristo - Leader:Felix Manalo. "We believe in
Jesus Christ, but we do not believe that He is True God. We
believe in only one true god, the god of creation. Jesus Christ
is a great savior and was commissioned by God to be the savior"
("Research Center Bulletin," Far East Broadcasting).

Inner Peace Movement - Leader: Rev. Francisco Coll, DD.
A form of spiritualism and spiritism combining ESP,
astro-projection, psychic phenomena,etc., they introduce
seven levels of consciousness. Christ consciousness is
the highest. Jesus had reached Christ Consciousness and taught
this while on earth. Jesus was a man. They separate Jesus and
Christ. God is impersonal and spoken of as The All, The Cosmos,
and The Universe (Every Wind of Doctrine, Hobart Freeman).

Integral Yoga Institute - Founder: Swami Satchidananda.
"There are not many gods; there is only One. And that One has
no name, no form, no place. (Thus Christ is not God.) He is
everywhere-in actuality, neither he, nor she, nor it . . . The
two sides are positive and negative, light and shade. Evil is
also God." says the Swami (The Youth Nappers, James C. Hefley).

Islam - Christ was a prophet of Allah, but was superseded
by Muhammad's teachings and authority.

Jainism - Founder:Mahavira. "Jainism begins by denying the
existence of an external supreme being, creator, or Lord,
who is the mainstay of the universe. (Thus,no Christ.)
For these non-theistic humanist, there is no need to assume a
First cause" (Religions in a Changing World, Howard F. Vos)

Jehovah's Witnesses - Jesus is a created being,
Michael, the first creation of Jehovah and the "Son of
God."

Laymen's Home Missionary Movement - Leader:Raymond J. Jolly.
Similar to the Jehovah's Witnesses, they deny the physical
resurrection of Jesus Christ. "John 4:24-God is a Spirit. Luke
24:39-A Spirit hath not flesh and bones . . . In the first
place, God directly tells us that Jesus is now a spirit
being" (Epiphany Studies in the Scriptures). "Trinitarians
have grossly mistranslated and miscapitalized this passage to
read their trinitarianism into it, as they have done in
other cases. The proper translation shows that Christ is
not Jehovah . . . He is Jehovah's appointed Savior for the
world, not Jehovah Himself" (Epiphany Studies in the
Scriptures-Series 1).

Liberal Catholic Church - Leaders:Charles W.
Leadbeater and Vincent M. Matthews. "Obviously, God is not
and cannot be a person. (Thus, no divine Christ.) The persons
of the Holy Trinity are representatives or masks for the One God
who is beyond individuality; is unlimited; eminent; and
transcendent" (The One Existence, E.M. Matthews). The LCC is
independent of the Roman Catholic Church and blends elements of
theosophy and pantheism (These Also Believe, Charles Samuel
Braden).

Megiddo Mission - Founder:Rev. L.T. Nichols. "Christ,
Emanuel, 'God with us,' is not the eternal God but the Son of
God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, but
wholly human in his nature -Matthew 1:23,Hebrews 2:16,17 . .
."(History of the Megiddo Mission, published by Megiddo Mission
Church).

Mormons-Founder:Joseph Smith, Jr. Also Called: Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Jesus is a pre-
existent spirit, also the Father, one of many gods. Christ was
God-man, and men can be just like him (Mormon Doctrine, Bruce
McConkie).

Nichiren Shoshu Soka Gakkai - Soka Gakkai substitutes
Gautama Buddha and Nichiren for the True God and replaces the
Bible with the Lotus Sutra, a false scripture. Soka Gakkai
translates to "Value Recreation Society" ("Views on Christ,"
John Weldon).

Peace Mission Movement - Leader: Father Divine (George
Baker). Baker distinguishes between Jesus and Christ. "I
say B.J. not B.C. because it was before Jesus yet, in my
opinion, it was not before Christ" (The New Day,
September 1,1945). "Jesus, he (Baker) seems at times to
regard as merely the temporal and physical embodiment of the
Christ" (These Also Believe, Charles Samuel Braden). Baker
has claimed to be God and the Holy Spirit. There are also
references in Baker's writings to indicate that Jesus is
God (Kingdom of the Cults, Walter Martin).

Psychiana - Leader: Frank B. Robinson. "At no time has God,
nor will God, manifest Himself on this earth or anywhere
as a person . . . Jesus was no more than a human acting out
the God-power" (They Have Found a Faith, Marcus Bach).

Radha Soami Society - Leader: Charan Singh. God is seen as
attributeless, formless, and impersonal without
personality and name, although they give "him" the qualities
of love, grace, wisdom and power. The Society asserts that
there are countless gods and goddesses, lords, rulers and
governors in the universe (The World of Gurus, Vishal
Mangalwadi), thus Jesus Christ is not Lord of Lords.

Rajneesh Meditation Centers - Leader: Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh.
"But God (thus, Christ) is not a person. God is the process
. . .Existence is without cause . . .In the beginning, there is
no cause so in the end there can be no purpose" (Beyond and
Beyond, Acharya Rajneesh).

Rosicrucianism - Jesus was a reincarnated man, the
highest luminary possible. The Christ spirit in Him was a
manifestation of the cosmic Christ ("Rays from the Rose
Cross," December, 1978).

Ruhani Satsang - Leader: Kirpal Singh. "Jesus Christ was
essentially a man of the East, and his teachings are imbued
with oriental mysticism. It is even speculated that he
spent many of his early years in india and learned from the
Yogins and Buddhist monks" (The Crown of Life, Kirpal Singh).

Sacred Mushroom of the Cross - Leader: John Allegro. Christ
was a mushroom (Sacred Mushroom of the Cross, John
Allegro).

Sanatana Dharma Foundation - Leader: Yogeshwar Muni.
(also called Kayavarohan). Jesus is a man who
achieved a divine state through meditation. Sanatana
Dharma is considered the eternal path to truth leading
to fulfillment and divinity. "Thus men, for the first time on
Earth, could achieve the God level not only in concept, but in
physical manifestations as well" (Vishvamitra Newsletter).

Satanism - The introduction to the satanic bible says,
"What amuses us most is that you indicate that a mere command to
Satan in Jesus' name is sufficient to dismiss him. The Prince
of Darkness regards both God and Jesus Christ a figments
of man's more infantile imagination, at least insofar as
their supposed power is concerned. God is dead, and Christ
was but a man" (Every Wind of Doctrine, Dr. Hobart Freeman).

Scientology-Founder: L. Ron Hubbard. Hubbard claims to
have found the spiritual technology to dispense the one "true
way" to man. It is a process working through levels of self-
knowledge and knowledge of past lives to awaken the
primordial deity within until a person is able to regain
total godhood. Christ is a man "who achieved a 'state of
clear' but not the higher state of 'Operating Thetan"
("Certainty" magazine, Vol 5, No 10).

Self-Realization Fellowship - Leader: Paramahansa Yogananda.
Group also called "Yogoda Satsanga Society." Separates Jesus
and Christ. Jesus was indwelt by the Christ Consciousness.
"Let the omniscient Christ Consciousness come to Earth a
second time and be born in you, even as it was manifested in the
mind of Jesus" (Metaphysical Meditations, SRF Publishers_.

Shintoism - "Deity is spirit, without form, unknowable . .
. changeless, eternal, existing from the beginning of Heaven
and Earth up to the present, unfathomable, infinite . . ."
(Source of Japanese Tradition, Vol 1, editor William
Theodore De Bary).

Shree Guru Dev Siddha Yoga Ashram - Leader: Swami
Muktananda Paramahansa. Also called: "Sidha Yoga Dham." This is
a self realization group whose leader claims to be god. "This
is the praise of the all-pervasive, formless, unmanifest,
Absolute Being who manifest Himself in a thousand forms . . .
Above all, you will receive Divine Grace and finally realize your
own divinity." Rejects God manifesting Himself in Jesus
Christ (Songs of God, Guru, Self - Kabiraj).

Sikhism - Founder: Nanak. Sikhism developed an abstract
and mystical monotheism. God is formless, sovereign,
unknowable and absolute. However, a righteous person can
call upon the grace of Sat Nam - God. If a person reaches
salvation, which is by works, he absorbs into God. rejects the
idea that God revealed in a Person of Jesus Christ (Cults,
World Religions and You, Kenneth Boa).

Sivananda Yoga Vedenta Centers - Leader: Swami Sivananda.
Also called "International Sivananda Yoga Society." God (or
Christ) is not a person or spirit, but Consciousness.
He is sometimes reborn as a man, other times as an animal,
plant, or even inanimate object. (The World of Gurus,
Vishal Mangalwadi).

Spiritual Advancement of the Individual Foundation. - Leader:
Sri Satya Sai Baba. Jesus Christ is seen as an
"Avatar," a deity descended to earth in bodily form. Sai Baba
is Jesus Christ who was returned. Man, according to Baba,
is Atman - Self or God. Man is under an illusion so that he
forgets that he is God. Baba also teaches that God is
ultimately without attributes (The World of Gurus, Vishal
Mangalwadi).

Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship - Founder: Arthur Ford and
others. "There was no Christ 2,000 ago. There was a man 2,000
ago through whom the Annointed One was able to manifest. The
man died, Christ lived, and as the Holy Spirit has been helping
. . . The Divine Mind or the Concept of God has within
himself all the faculties or qualities of both male and
female. There can be no creative expression, there can be
no life without these two qualities. So God is neither man nor
woman." Ford, a former Christian minister, made these
comments during a seance March 18, 1965 (Unknown but Known,
Arthur Ford).

Spiritualist - Jesus was an outstanding Jewish medium (Kingdom
of the Cults - Walter Martin).


Sri Chinmoy Centers - Leader: Sri Chinmoy. God is seen
as Consciousness and Light. Realize the divinity within you.
"It is not because of his (Jesus') miracles that he is
worshipped, but because he brought down the eternal
Consciousness, the infinite Consciousness"
(Kundalini: The Mother Power, Sri Chinmoy).

Still Point Institute - Leader: Sujata. Christ is an evolutive
god, a cosmic Christ. A heavy influence of Zen Buddhism
negates the personal God (The Still Point, William Johnson).

Subud - Leader: Muhammad Subuh (Bapak). God is a "Great Life
Force that flows through everything and everyone. It is
impersonal." (Thus no divine Christ.) God is felt through
"latihan" which is an inner vibration. The objective is
Subud is to become passive so that you can experience and
feel latihan (New Gods in America, Peter Rowley).

Sufism - Leader: Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan. God is an
"Abstract Sound" which is the creative life principle in all
of nature. "The goal of Sufism is union with God in this life."
Because of its link with Islamic philosophy, it would not
consider Jesus as God (Awakening Ways to Psycho-
Spiritual Growth, C.William Henderson).

Swedenborgism - Founder: E. Swedenborg. A form of spiritism
which also denies the person of the Holy Spirit. He is
called an efficiency or sanctifying influence. "We ought to
have faith in God the Savior Jesus Christ, because that is
faith in the visible God in Whom is the Invisible; and faith
in the visible God, Who is at once Man and God, who enters
Man" (True Christian Religion, E. Swedenborg).

Taoism - Greatest philosopher: Chuang Tzu. "There is no
personal Creator-God" (Cults, World Religions and You, Kenneth
Boa).

Tarotology - The most serious form of cartomancy (divination
by cards). It has been linked with magic, numerology,
astrology and other cults. For all the languages about God,
Spirit and the Truth of God, the God and Truth of Tarot are in
no way those of Jesus Christ. It is an idolatrous system
(Dennis Hesslegrave, Trinity Evangelical Divinity
School).

The Farm - Leader: Stephen. An eastern mysticism commune in
Summertown, TN. Jesus, a teacher, was a good man indwelt with
Christ Consciousness. "In the telepathic medium of the Holy
Spirit, Christ consciousness, Buddha consciousness,
call it what you will, exist all the time. ... You don't have
to call it Jesus or Buddha or Krishna, it's 'the
consciousness'"(Hey Beatnik! 1974).

The Foundation Church of the Millennium - leader: Father John.
Denies the deity of Jesus Christ. It is an off-shoot of or
the front for the Process Church of the Final Judgement
(below) although they deny affiliation. They were both
founded in September, 1966; began in Xtul, Mexico; listed
their midwest address as 1529 N. Wells Street, Chicago,
IL; and have both since moved.

The Holy Order of MANS - Leader: Earl Blighton. Holds the
occult-eastern view that Jesus was a great teacher, but
merely a man who attained an impersonal kind of "Christ
Consciousness." They separate Jesus and Christ. They believe
all can attain Christ-Consciousness (Spiritual
Counterfeit Project, Berkeley, CA).

The Himalayan International Institute of Yoga Science and
Philosophy. - Founder: Swami Rama. "In order to become true
members of the Church of Christ, a person must know not who
Jesus was, but what Christ is. Christ, Ishvara, is the very
personal force pervading the universe that guides and
illuminates every aspirant. . . It is not an embodied
person, but rather a force in which all individual beings are
divine sparks. . ."(Meditation in Christianity, Dr. Pandit
Arya). Swami Rama has said, "Jesus Christ was perhaps the
greatest of all Yogis."

The Process Church of the Final Judgement - Founder:
Robert De Grimston. Jesus is a mere man. "The Processeans
believe in three gods: Jehovah, Lucifer, and Satan" (Sata's
Devices, Kurt Koch)

The 3 HO Foundation - Leaders: Yogi Bhajan and Guru Ram
Dass. The 3 HO means Happy, Health and Holy. "What is God?... He
is cosmic energy... He is yin-yang; He is positive an negative.
He is male, female... When you say cosmic
consciousness, you mean God... You are God... God is you.
Man has never realized he is God... God is a stick... God is
a cup.... God is a woman" (The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan,
Bhajan).

Unification Church - Leader/Fonder: Sun Myung Moon. Moon
states that God has dual qualities - spirit and energy. God is
a personal being with consciousness, intelligence, love
and purpose. Salvation can come only through the Messiah
who achieves perfection, marries, and has perfect
offspring. Christ, Moon says, was to do this, but He failed
because he died before he could marry. Because He was
resurrected, Moon says, Jesus did redeem man
spiritually. The physical redemption of man will happen
through a second Messiah, but not Christ. The implication is
that Moon is the second Messiah. (Moody Monthly, July 1977).

The Way International - Leader: Victor Paul Wierwile. A very
close counterfeit of Christianity. They believe in God, the
Bible, Jesus Christ, salvation, and eternal life, but not the
Trinity. Jesus is NOT God, and the Holy Spirit is a synonym
for God (Jesus Christ is Not God, Victor Paul Wierwille).

Theosophist - Christ took the body Jesus, a man, to
become a teacher. Eventually all men become Christ.

Transcendental Meditation - Leader: Maharishi Mahesh
Yogi. Also called "Spiritual Generation Movement,"
"Student's International Meditation Society," "TM."
Maharishi says the reason for creation and individual life is
the expansion of happiness. This is done by expanding one's
consciousness through seven levels of consciousness. Jesus is
considered an Enlightened One. Leaders have attempted to claim
that TM is not a religion, but courts have ruled that it is,
and the nature of its initiation rites prove that it is
Hindu derivative. (Meditations, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi).

Unitarians - Jesus was a man who believed in One God, not
the Trinity.

Unity School of Christianity - Jesus was a perfect man, indwelt
by the Christ Consciousness, present in every human being.

Vedanta Society - Founder: Swami Vivekananda. Also known
as "Ramakrishna Order." "They (gods) are human beings with
extraordinary, original powers and entrusted with a Divine
commission. Being heirs of Divine power and glories, they form a
class of their own. To this class belong the incarnations of
God, like Christ, Krishna, Buddha, and Chaitanya and
their devotees of the highest order" (Hindu View of Christ.
Swami Akhilananda).

Witchcraft - "Down through the centuries, many witches
and sorcerers consider God and Satan as merely symbols of
power, with no real existence as personalities" (Kingdom of
Darkness, F.W. Thomas). Some witches may see Jesus as a wizard
who was able to master natural and occult forces.

Worldwide Church of God - Leader: Herbert W. Armstrong.
Jesus is a part of the godhead (God is a family) and men can
become like Jesus and part of the God family - Sons of God.
They do not believe in a closed godhead (TRINITY). The Holy
Spirit is not considered a person, but the Father and the Son
work through it. (Derivate cult - International
Church of God. Leader: Son of Herbert, George, was disowned by
his father and started this group that believes the same
but claims that the Worldwide Church lost its authority when
Herbert divorced his wife.)

Zen Buddhism - "Since Zen does not affirm the existence of
the living God, it is not only absolutely destitute of the
special revelation of God in His Word, but is wholly alien to
the God of revelation." says Lit-Sen-Chang (The Kingdom of
the Cults, Walter Martin).

Zoroastrianism - Founder: Spitoma Zoroaster. This is one
of the first monotheistic religions in the world, and adherents
of this religion are thought to have been the originators of the
Wise Men from the East who searched out Jesus when He was born.
This cult doesn't recognize a personal God. Their god,
Ahura Mazda, is impersonal and has no physical nature (Cults,
World Religions and You, Kenneth Boa).

Computers For Christ NOTE - Those organizations not shown
with references are on file with this ministry with
substantial confirmation of the statements. The
computer phone data service has many of them outlined in
depth. SYSOP - Computers For Christ.
