There’s only one way to be sure that you are saved. “The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:” Romans 8:16
Two things happen when the Holy Spirit indwells Himself in you:
1 Doubt as to the existence of God, the deity of Christ and the indwelling presence of God is removed from your being. The doubt is supplanted by faith in Jesus Christ, through personal experience.
2 All other deities, characters, created beings and creatures take their rightful place - under and not ever equal to the Sovereignty of the triune God - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Buddha is not God.
Vishnu is not God.
Rah is Not God.
Zoroaster is not God.
Cow’s are not sacred.
And cucumbers are just plain cucumbers. Don't laugh too hard there are people who worship cucumbers.
Christians that make excuses for and defend other faiths have been seriously misinformed or they have not come to that place of the personal relationship with the Christ.
The Bible says, “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5. One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6. One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Ephesians 4:4-6
6. 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
12. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is
none other name under heaven given among men, hereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12
Jesus Christ is the creator and sustainer of life. All other deities were created by man - and have no power, no authority. They bring no rain, no life, no peace, no solace, no direction, no answers.
Without the power of (social management religions), these gods so-called would have been brought into question, exposed as false and discarded."
