5 Islam Koran 4: – “…and for their saying, 'We killed the Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger (and Prophet) of Allah.' They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but to them, he (the crucified) had been given the look (of Prophet Jesus). Those who differ concerning him (Prophet Jesus) are surely in doubt regarding him, they have no knowledge of him, except the following of supposition, and (it is) a certainty they did not kill him. Rather, Allah raised him up to Him. Allah is Almighty, the Wise.”

6 9: 30 - “the Christians say that the Messiah is the son of God. Such are their assertions, by which they imitate the infidels of old. God confound them! How perverse they are!” 19: – “Those who say: ‘The Lord of Mercy has begotten a son,’ preach a monstrous falsehood, at which the very heavens might crack, the earth break asunder, and the mountains crumble to dust. That they should ascribe a son to the Merciful, when it does not become the Lord of Mercy to beget one!” Islam

7 “Man was also in the beginning with God.” LDS Doctrine & Covenants 93: 29 “…for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.” – Book of Mormon, II Nephi 25: 23 LDS Church

8 “All human beings—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose. In the premortal realm, spirit sons and daughters knew and worshiped God as their Eternal Father and accepted His plan by which His children could obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience to progress toward perfection and ultimately realize his or her divine destiny as an heir of eternal life. The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally.” The Family: A Proclamation to the World - President Gordon B. Hinckley, September 23, LDS Church

9 Atonement & Eucharist –2: 3 “One sacrifice, however great, is insufficient to pay the debt of sin. That God’s wrath should be vented upon His beloved Son, is divinely unnatural. Such a theory is man-made.” Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures Mary Baker Eddy Christian Science

10 “In the beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god.” John 1:1 New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures “Christ was raised from the dead as an immortal spirit person.” Jehovah’s Witnesses

11 Christ is God's Son as He created Him. The final judgment on the world contains no condemnation. God is in everything I see. God is in this coat hanger. God is in this magazine. God is in this finger. God is in this lamp. God is in that body. God is in that door. God is in that waste basket. A Course in Miracles Helen Schucman

12 No guilt, no sin, no evil, no devil, no death. My salvation comes from me. Salvation of the world depends on me. God's Will for you is perfect happiness because there is no sin, and suffering is causeless. Joy is just, and pain is but the sign you have misunderstood yourself. You are the holy Son of God Himself. My sinlessness ensures me perfect peace, eternal safety, everlasting love, freedom forever from all thought of loss; complete deliverance from suffering. And only happiness can be my state, for only happiness is given me. A Course in Miracles Helen Schucman

13 from the promotional video which aptly begins, “This is about you.” Discover the depth within yourself … * Find the goodness already within you … * You are that light … * The source of all energy is within you … According to Tolle, “heaven” is the awakened state within you that will bring about “a new earth” A New Earth Eckhart Tolle
