Understanding The Cults (Pt.2)
Evangelizing "False Christ" Belief Systems
This audio explores concepts such as religion, cults, what and who “another Jesus” is (2 Cor. 11:1-4), theological term switching, and the importance of defining the biblical Jesus Christ, before and during Christian evangelism to those in “false christ” belief systems. Definitions and concepts are illustrated with various quotes and mentions of (1) non-Christian cults, (2) major world religions, (3) secular belief systems, and (4) the NewAge/occult.
Other important topics include (5) defining terminology versus semantic suicide, (6) cultic close-mindedness and isolation, (7) avoiding cult stratagems of psychological confusion and the element of surprise, (8) how cults exalt man and demote Jesus Christ, (9) the danger of believing doctrines of demons (1 Tim. 4:1-2), and finally (10) “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try [test] the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1-6).
Scriptures: 2 Cor. 11:12-15; Matt. 16:16-18; John 8:24, 1 John 4:1-6; 1 Thess. 5:21; 1 Tim. 4:1-5.
