Characteristics of Cults and Cultic Influences


Four Patterns that Describe How Cults Operate


This audio message is a fast-paced overview of how Cults and Cult-like movements operate. They ADD to the Word of God, SUBTRACT from the Deity of Jesus Christ, MULTIPLY the requirements for salvation, and DIVIDE a followers loyalty to God. Recorded live at a biblical discernment seminar on the Central Coast of California, the quoted material from Chris's PowerPoint presentation comes from numerous sources, including the book Kingdom of the Cults (Dr. Walter Martin), a profile titled Patterns in the Cults (R. Branch, 1994), and more.
