2 Corinthians 11:4 For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. See verse in context
So which Jesus do you believe in? The one defined in the Bible as God in the flesh, the unique Son of God, the second person of the Trinity, The King of Kings and Lord of Lords who died for all mankind and rose again to provide a solution to everyone's sin problem or one of the following fakes:
Jesus of New Agers
A good Jewish man from history who became god-like just like any other person can become god-like; or alternately, someone who achieved spiritual enlightenment. The basis for this belief is usually one or more Gnostic gospels. The Gnostic gospels are fictional stories written after the New Testament books to support the heresy of Gnostism. They are ancient fiction similar to the "Da Vinci Code" of today.
Jesus of Islam
A prophet but NOT the Son of God who was not crucified nor rose from the dead. The basis of their belief is aTrilogy, the Koran(or Quran), Sira (Mohammed's biography) and Hadith (his Traditions) which were written hundreds of years after the New Testament books of the Bible.
Jesus of Jehovah's Witnesses
The arch-Angel Michael, a created "a god" or a "mighty god" but not God in the flesh. He was also not raised bodily. The basis for their belief is their own New World Translation of the Bible and their original founder's (Charles Russel) theology.
Jesus of the Latter Day Saints (Mormans)
Jesus one of many gods. He was once a man and became a god just like all of us. Each god may one day get their own planets to rule. The basis for their belief is their "guad"(4) of authoratative books, the Book of Morman, the Pearl of Great Price, Doctrines and Covenants, and the King James Bible "as far as it is translated correctly" .. and any Biblical passages which contradict their other three books have not been translated correctly (according to them).
Jesus of Judaism
A Jewish man who may have been a prophet and the founder of the Christian Religion. He did not rise again from the dead and he was not the son of God. The basis for their belief, is the old Testament books collectively referred to as "the Law and the Phrophets" and the Talmund (a record of rabbinic discussions pertaining to Jewish law, ethics, customs, and history).
Jesus of Roman Catholisism
Jesus is God in the flesh via "mother of God" Mary. Jesus died and rose again and gets repeatedly eaten as a waffer in order to repeatedly pay (atone) for ones sins. The basis for their belief is their Roman Catholic Bible, their oral traditions and the teaching magisterium of their church.
