Logic, perspicacity and a touch of common sense
Edmund Burke said that, “the only thing necessary for evil men to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” I like to add that if you know something is wrong and evil and affecting people and you do not speak up on it then you not loving people. This principle can be applied to the Christianity.
We have received an overwhelming amount of letters that ask for the proof of what some men in big and famous ministries have said. Despite the fact that the quotations are included in the articles and the references documented next to them, people are not be able to read what is said. Maybe some people’s ears are trained to only hear these statements audibly and reading does not help them. Since we have almost all these statements on audio we make many of the statements available to the genuinely interested. Anything that will help people know what certain teachers they follow have said, not once, but many times..
I thought it would be a good idea to show some of the quotes among others WHO THINK ALIKE, such as New Ager's, Witches, Occultists and Mormon's and Moonie's. Since most do not believe their teacher could not say such false statements or be similar to Non-Christian's, they should easily be able to distinguish which statement are from their teacher and those statements that are from the Non-Christian's.
I assure you there’s nothing to fear, since your not judging whether someone is right or wrong by these statements. This exercise only challenges you to pick your favorite Christian teacher’s statements out among the non-Christians statements. For those who know their teachers so well, it should be easy to determine there statements among the others. However, I would like to submit for your consideration, if you cannot tell between the Christian minister and the others who are New Ager's, Witches, Occultists and Mormon's or Moonie's, maybe it is time to consider what many have already been saying; it's not Christian teaching. I hope that this will prompt you to do the research for your own conscience and spiritual life’s sake.

THE ANSWERS to the Quotes
A note of truth: The Bible the Lord states: “I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me” (Isaiah 43:10).
“I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any” (Isaiah 44: 6-8).
To call oneself god, God , or divine or any other created being God is blasphemy. A Christian is supposed to know God and his place in relationship to Him. If he does, he would not be able to say he is Christ or God.
Only Jesus could say “If you have seen me you have seen the father”
“I and my father are one Jesus Christ” He alone was Emmanuel-God with us.
