It appears that in comparing what the Christian church teaches as an aggrigate (noting fairly minor differences between denominations) is unrecognizable as truth when compared to what Jesus taught His own disciples while here on earth. The principle that what Jesus taught (His words as received from His Father) is the unadulterated standard for truth is no longer considered as viable when seen in the light of the words of the modern prophets and apostles that came after Jesus returned to His Father at the end of His ministry here on earth IN THE FLESH. This is because these modern apostles and prophets, most notabely Paul, and the prophets that appeared in the 19th century, such as Jospeh Smith, E.G.White, Mary Baker Eddie (to name a few), state that they recieved their 'truth' directly from God in vision or dream from the Holy Spirit. Major Christian denominations were founded on these prophets, and indeed so was the Christian church itself.
The idea that God in His wisdom changed what Jesus stated as truth after Jesus left the earth to an entirely "different Gospel" is the founding premis of Christianity. When viewed in the light of those WORDS of Jesus it is difficult to understand how anyone could be fooled into thinking this could possibly be true. YET, we have been led to believe that what Jesus said while on earth has been supplanted by a "better" way, in that faith is seen as 'going beyond' facts, and belief that what Jesus said no longer applies to salvation, that it is only 'grace' that saves us, is the order of the day; that it is only through the feelings that are received through the 'Holy Spirit' that confirm the truth that it is Salvation by Grace through Faith that saves us, and not obedience to some obsolete and ancient Law that is the foundation for salvation.
If Grace saves us then everyone is saved. But IF this is NOT true, what then?
