Messiah, Muslims, and Mormons: A Brief Timeline

April 7, 2019

Approx 30-33AD – The true Jesus reveals himself to humanity as God in the flesh, performs countless miracles, dies on the cross to pay for the sins of the whole world, starts his church with eyewitnesses who wrote down his teachings for us, teaches and warns people for several years: “see that no one leads you astray…be on your guard…false prophets will arise and perform signs and wonders, to lead astray…be on your guard; I have told you all these things beforehand…my words will not pass away” (Mark 13:5, 9, 22, 23, 31).

Approx 600 AD – Mohammed appears on the scene, claiming he has received revelations from God and produces a book that he claims was dictated by God Himself. This book denies the core teachings and message of Jesus Christ. It denies his deity, his death on the cross for our sins, and teaches justification by the works of the law. Initially it was claimed that it did not contradict the Bible, but when proven otherwise, it became a doctrine in this religion that “the Bible has been corrupted” (a denial and rejection of Jesus’ promise that his words would not pass away).

Approx 1830 AD – Joseph Smith appears on the scene, claiming he has received revelations from God and produces books that he claims are from God. These books deny the core teachings and message of Jesus Christ. They deny his deity by redefining the nature of God and the nature of man (in essence, making humans equal in nature to God), they deny his death on the cross as the sufficient payment for our sins, and teach justification by faith PLUS the works of the law. Initially it was also claimed that they did not contradict the Bible, but when proven otherwise, it became a doctrine in this religion that “the Bible has been corrupted” (a denial and rejection of Jesus’ promise that his words would not pass away).

Many other religions are similar in their denial of the original gospel of Jesus Christ that was revealed by Christ himself with his own promise that he would preserve his own words. How is it not disbelief in Christ to reject his own words and transfer one’s faith to another?
