Moslems, Hindus And Buddhists

Could this scripture possibly be referring to Moslems, Hindus, Buddhists and all religions other than Christianity? " I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber." ACTS 10:1

Not only these religions, but all that Paul speaks of Gal. 1:8,9, referring to his Gospel 1 Cor. 15:1-4, how do we pervert it? By adding to or taking away from.

It's Not only these Man - made relig - org's moslems, hindu's, buddhists etc., Also the Man - made trin relig - org's churches beginning with the rcc & her offspring daughters churches being like a thief & a robber Are also trying to get into heaven without going through the door of the sheep fold of God.
The above Are trying to get into heaven without Jesus name baptism, Acts 2 v's 37 - 41 which Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19 - 20 & it will NOT happen.

mima, you described a false religeon. There are many of those around. Thieves and robbers go to hell because they can't be born again because if they were they would have enterend thru the door.

Mima - Sorry. I only just looked and saw that the mistake had already been cleared up.

Your world religions quiz is not a world religions quiz at all! Call it what it is please.

My apologies to all for giving the wrong book.

The verse, which by the way is JOHN 10:1 not Acts, specifically applies to anyone and everyone who tries to get to heaven any other way than by Jesus' Sacrifice of Himself on the Cross for sin. So, yes, it does apply to all religions other than those that are truly born-again Christian.

David, I don't think mima was asking about the religions of that day, as to when this scripture was written. This scripture is for us just as much as when it was written 2000 years ago. So I think she was wanting to know about the religions of today.
Mrs, Morgan hit the nail on the head, and she quotes, "Yes, anyone , Hindu's,Muslims,etc. that try to get into Heaven other than the way that Jesus said, AND NOT ONLY THE HINDU'S, Muslim's,etc., BUT ALSO CHRISTIAN'S /Catholic's and Jew's.

MIMA:Are you sure its Acts 10:1--this speaks about Cornelius Please clear this up.

**most likely this refers to Zoroastrianism, a dead religion that was in direct competition with Christianity for the first couple hundred years or so.**
Interesting idea, David. Though recently there was something on TV about the modern adherents of Zoroastrianism. The relgion has very few followers, but it's not absolutly extinct yet.

2)...Now read one of my favorites: John 1:1-14; and note 1:1) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God".. and 1:14) "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."

Mima,
1)...That's actually from (John) 10:1, but yeah, I do believe that false religions are like the theif and robber. Read also the following verses; (John 10:7) Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep; (John 14:6) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

It could not have been referring to Islam, since Christianity predates Islam. Though Buddhism & Hinduism predate Christianity, they were not anywhere near geographically -- most likely this refers to Zoroastrianism, a dead religion that was in direct competition with Christianity for the first couple hundred years or so.
---david on 8/24/06


I do not think you have appropriately quoted this passage. However, I will respond with a verse from ACTS 10. "But God has shown me that I should not call any man impure or unclean." ACTS 10:28. Use caution before blatantly denouncing others, even if you are sure you are correct. Doing so will doubtlessly only lead to conflict.
---Peter on 8/24/06


Yes, anyone , Hindu's,Muslims,etc. that try to get into Heaven other than the way that Jesus said, and not only the Hindu's, Muslim's,etc., but also Christian's/Catholic's and Jew's. Jesus said that FEW will go down that NARROW ROAD,only a FEW will take up their cross and deny self. Some Christians don't trust and/or believe in the Divine Power in the Blood of Jesus, don't believe in Abiding and Yielding to God's Word, and just go through the motions, and it just won't work. --Mrs. Morgan
