So is it important to get Jesus right? I'd say so. But csndioer what happens when people head down the road after embracing a view of Jesus different than the orthodox view. In Mormonism we have Joseph Smith and those who followed him, engaged in all sorts of additional speculation. They didn't stop at saying that Jesus was a created being. We have Joseph Smith and the others totally spinning out of control and pretty soon we have a father god who progressed from being a man, he lives on a planet called Kolob with his many goddess wives, they give birth to spirit children who eventually come to inhabit this god's earth as born of other humans and we have these human males then striving to become gods themselves. I guess I could find some value, for lack of a better word, if Mormons were straight Arians. It's understandable. But then they get into this bizarre world of multiplicity of gods, men becoming gods and on and on. The problem that Mormons face is that the Mormon Jesus can't save them. The reason for this is that Mormon salvation isn't as it's presented in the Bible. Mormon salvation consists of two parts. One part is general salvation provided for all of mankind and the other is a specific sort of salvation that encompasses that god-maker tract. Mormons have a different god, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost, atonement, salvation and scripture. So how can they expect to receive the salvation revealed in God's Word? Mormonism is an entirely different religion with a Jesus that isn't the pathway to the Father and eternal life. So it's one or the other for Mormons. They can go with Joseph Smith and his religion and his polytheistic god, or they can choose the Jesus who provides salvation.
