The cults represent millions of people searching for fulfillment in their spiritual life, which they have not found in our churches. Cults use some of the same terminology we use but their definitions are very different. Understanding the difference in our terminology and theology is not going to necessarily help you. The cults are no more effective at teaching their people, than we are at teaching ours. This means many of the cult members may not even be aware of the differences. The information here at MyChurchGrowth.com is going to be focused on the one thing that is fundamental to salvation. Who is the real Jesus?
When it comes to Born again Christians, Jehovah’s Witnesses's, and Mormons, George Barna said that "All three of these groups claim to be Christian, uphold the importance of faith and spirituality, are active in their churches, generally believe in the same God, and accept the holiness of Jesus Christ." I don’t agree with that. Our God is the same in name only. The question Jesus asked, “Who do people say that I am?” is very important, and it is the foundation of the Christian faith. As Christians, we believe Jesus is the infinite God man while the other two groups do not believe in the trinity, therefore we cannot worship the same God.
