If you deny Christ, you are not worshipping God.

Anyone who is not trusting and obeying Christ may think they worship one or more gods, but they are mistaken.

If you deny Christ, then you deny God. If you do not abide in the teaching of Christ then you do not have God. Only Christians worship the One True God.

1 Thessalonians 1:9-10

 9 For they themselves report about us what kind of a reception we had with you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve a living and true God, 10 and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come.

1 John 2:22-23

 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.

1 John 5:19-21

19 We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 21 Little children, guaard yourselves from idols.

2 John 1:9

Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.

    My better half left organized religion many years ago. I asked her if she believed in Jesus and God.
    Her answer was “Jesus is my brother and God is my father.”

    Do you think she is oversimplifying. Is she missing the point?
    Your comments would be appreciated.

    • Is she obeying God? If there is no obedience, then one must wonder whether Christ is her Lord.

      We can claim God is our father and claim Christ is our brother, but there must be spiritual fruit. Many even do miracles in the name of Christ, but they are called unrighteous by Christ. Does she have the righteousness of Christ in anythibg other than name? God MAKES us righteous when we repent and turn to God through faith in Christ. Has she repented?
