260G Worldview Apologetics: Cults
Peter instructs us that “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him” (2 Peter 1:3). Therefore, knowing who God is is so critically important. We find that the cults inevitably present a different Jesus and a different Gospel. The Church needs to be able to identify distorted interpretations and to counter them for the sake of its people. Paul writes that it is a duty of an elder to “hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it” (Titus 1:9). This is not an option but a command. This course will examine the teachings of the Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and various cult leaders in order to critique their errant interpretations of Scripture.
