Growing up in Mormonism, we did not talk about the Cross. Instead, we were taught that Jesus atoned for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane. We did not talk about the cross and were told not to display it. The Mormon teaching says that the cross could not exceed the Garden, but the Bible shows that the Cross is what triumphed over our sin.
Luke 9:23: "And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me."
Galatians 6:14: "But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ..."
The Bible teaches that true Christians will glory in the cross and John 18:11 proves that Jesus' greatest work of atonement was not completed in the Garden, but rather on the cross when it reports at John 18:11 that Jesus had not yet completed the "cup" of atonement in the Garden. Likewise, Romans 4:25 says Jesus was "delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification." Jesus was not "delivered" to the Garden, but rather to the cross.
Furthermore, the Mormon Church teaches that we must go through them for salvation, yet the Bible teaches the opposite.
Acts 16:31: "And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house."
No religious duties can take away our sins. Only Jesus Christ can take away our sins.
Few things in life set us apart as distinctly as what we believe (or don't believe). From the most fervent among us to those just beginning to explore the possibilities, religion is a powerful force in our lives. BlogTalkRadio is where believers and nonbelievers of every denomination gather day in and day out to find resources, preach to others practicing and discuss the specific belief systems that guide us, bind us and often divide us. Christians, Pagans, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Pantheists, Sikhs, Jews, Wiccans, Unitarians, Satanists, Druids, Agnostics, Atheists, Secular Humanists and more will find likeminded friends to dialogue with, whether in heated debates or in collective prayer. You'll hear from bestselling authors, world leaders and kindred followers for inspiration and fellowship. And for those listeners and hosts who consider themselves spiritual but not religious, we've even got a separate Spirituality category to explore beliefs on your own terms.
