(Zephaniah 2:11) Furthermore, there is only one Name (Jesus Christ) under heaven by which men may be saved. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6) Please read the book that Mike Oppen- heimer and I wrote titled Idolatry in Their Hearts where we concisely document this situation. This is abundantly clear in the books, messages, and DVDs put out by such teachers on this subject and now in the book by Don Richardson called Heaven Wins. The WCGIP and EC teachers also cannot answer the many verses in the Bible, which state that the Gentiles “did not know God.” This type of teaching constitutes a grand delusion in the last-days apostasy and a new radical Replacement Theology where the one True God of the Bible is replaced with “supreme beings” from all cultures and Israel is replaced by all the nations. This heresy has even helped Bible translation societies to put the names of the false gods of the nations into the Bible! That’s how dangerous such teaching is. It undermines the very Gospel of Jesus Christ itself and puts at risk the eternity of millions of souls. 13 4. See http://home.comcast.net/~chris.s/ canaanite-faq.html. 5.

Author’s Note: For more information on the false polytheistic gods of ancient times, read my article “Monotheism in Ancient Cultures is Virtually Nonexistent” at: http://www.de- ceptioninthechurch.com/monotheisminan- cientcultures.html. It is important to note that in virtually every culture from Babel on, the “supreme beings” were not monotheistic gods but rather male/female pairings patterned on the worship of Nimrod and Semiramis of Babel. Also note that every one of these “supreme beings” spawned a pantheon of other false gods to be worshipped. PART 2: HIS NAME, THE ONLY ONE And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one. (Zechariah 14:9; emphasis added) Endnotes: 1.

Volume 7—No. 5 And the Lord will be king over all the earth; in that day the Lord will be the only one, and His name the only one. (Zechariah 14:9; NASB; emphasis added) M any proclaiming Christians who are influential in the churches are pro- moting the worship of God in the names of other gods. Here are just a few examples: There is an unwarranted skepticism towards the heathens’ possession, if at all, of a very limited and low knowledge of the divine from the so-called “natural/native religion.” The adoption of a local name for the universal God will facilitate mutual transformation of both Christianity and the native religion and culture. 1 — Society of Biblical Literature (Bible Translation Society) I love all religions. . . . If people become better Hindus, better Muslims, better Buddhists by our acts of love, then there is something else growing there. 2 — Mother Teresa Richard Twiss was on the 700 Club show with Gordon Robertson (Pat Robertson’s son), and in an interview he told Gordon that the Great Spirit of the Indians is the same as the Holy Spirit. Robertson heartily agreed. So by finding the native name of God which in, in Japan we found that name Ameno mi- naka-nushi which means the God in the glorious center of heaven and he is their creator God who created everything. And so we found this name of this creator God there, and it immediately says he’s a Japanese God and he loves them. 3 —Daniel Kikawa (WCGIP leader) You can keep your own religion— Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Mormonism—you just need to add Jesus to the equation.
