No problem, I just did a search for "God's promises."

OP,

Regarding your disagreement over my "read and pray" response, you stated that this alone can't be it because there are disagreements among Christians. And I understand your point, however, if you do a search for "basic christian doctrine" or something along those lines, you will see that there are foundamentals that Christians agree on, otherwise they are not Christians. There are of course many secondary issues that Christians are free to disagree upon (and do).

For example, Mormons may refer to themselves as Christians, however, they do not believe in the Trinity and they also believe that the Book of Mormon and other text are just as sacred and relevant as the Bible.

Deuteronomy 12:32

What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

Proverbs 30:5-6

Every word of God [is] pure: he [is] a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Revelation 22:19

And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

Galatians 1:6-12

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught [it], but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.



Therefore, you need not be confused by their beliefs, because they are outside Christian doctrine. My advice to you would be to research Christian doctrine. Then, we you are confused by preaching/teaching, you can test it against the Scripture you know which defines Christian doctrine.
