ESTABLISHING THE TRUTH BY DEFENDING HER FROM ERROR
(Click the blue dot to link)
The Biblical perspective of detecting error is introduced from Acts 20 and afterwards further broadened by three biblical means of detecting and discerning error: Jesus, Paul and John. Only after this do we describe and define a cult.
Some of us have fighting blood in us. We just love spending hours talking about the truth. Talking to cult members comes natural. This is not true for most of us, however. Below is a series of web pages on evangelizing the cults. Special focus is given on Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons.
This page came as a result of two Jehovah Witnesses who came to our door asking for me. They heard from my wife that her husband was a pastor! Listen in to this conversation in which the argument of deity of Christ was presented. Many details and reflections of this conversation are added to help one understand what we should and shouldn't say and the reason why.
What a novel! Unless you have spent time studying the Mormons, this detailed study of their beliefs with sources will astound you. My summary: Mormonism resembles something more from the Eastern religions than Christianity.
Evangelizing the Cults
This three page series gives basic hints and suggestions on sharing the gospel with the cults,
Sharing the Gospel is difficult for many, but sharing the Gospel with the cults seems impossible! We first share the biblical basis for sharing our faith with others and then address the basic hindrances we face when sharing the gospel with cult members. Special advice and hints are given.
In order to attack the enemy, one must first understand them! Cults' defense mechanisms and legalistic tendencies are outlined and explained. A good but introductory introduction is given to help Christians understand the cults. A glorious picture of Christ's kingdom is given last to help us detect the errors around us.
False teaching like leeches slowly suck the life blood from God's church. The church seems no longer willing to test the very teachings that thrive within the members of God's body.
Many false teachings have leaked into the church and have created havoc. Two which are here discussed are hedonism and relativism.
