By the same token, he who rejects Jesus, rejects God. Jesus Himself acknowledged this in John 12:48-49…
“He that rejects Me, and receives not my words, has One that judges him…For I have not spoken of myself, but the Father [God] which has sent Me, He gave Me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.”
Many well-meaning people today profess to believe in God and even practice some type of religion. They may even call Him by a variety of names. But unless they are worshipping the one true God of the Bible, the Creator of heaven and earth, they are worshipping a false god. Those who claim to know God must also accept Jesus the Messiah whom God has sent.
“And this is life eternal, that they might know You the only true God, and Jesus Christ [Messiah] whom You have sent.” – John 17:3
No matter how devoted you may be to your religious belief system, if your religion rejects Jesus the Christ as God’s only Son, and the only true messenger, and the only atoning sacrifice for your sins, all your religious practices are in vain. If so, you are following a false way: a religion that will lead you to eternal death, rather than eternal life. Only by following the true way that Jesus offers can you be sure you are on the right spiritual path to God. Any other prophet or teaching that contradicts the gospel message of Jesus is deception.
Jesus warned, “And many false prophets shall arise, and deceive many.” – Matthew 24:11
You may be sincere in your devotion to the many false prophets and religions that exist today, but if you do not repent and come out of deception you will be lost for all eternity. God will not acquit you on the basis of your sincerity, but on whether you accepted His Son, Jesus Christ, as your Savior and Lord.
Won’t you trust in Jesus today?
Believe that He is truly the only way to God. Renounce your involvement in any other religion or false teachings, and invite Jesus to become the Savior and Lord of your life. After you do, find a good Bible-believing church to attend, and fellowship with other like-minded believers in Christ.

Comment from Donna: “I wholeheartedly agree! Today I was at work and I heard a man say that ‘all that mattered was that people believe in God.’ He said that ‘as long as a person believes in God, it was okay.’ The Bible states otherwise. In I John 2:22 it says that anyone who does not believe what Jesus Christ said about himself, is Anti-Christ.”

Comment from Pastor Luis: “Amen, Donna. The Bible tells us that even demons believe in Jesus (James 2:19-20), but of course we know that neither Satan, nor fallen angels, nor demons will ever be saved. So there must be more to salvation than simply ‘believing in God'”
