Cults or Religious Movements are more modern in origin than the traditional world religions, but our approach to learning about such movements remains the same.
As with different world religions, members of cults or subscribers to different religious movements live in a culture of shared beliefs, morals, and values that influence individual attitudes and worldviews. The study of these cults and religious movements involves developing a deeper understanding of that culture, the impact it has on those who adhere to it and, ultimately, our relationships with those people.
Resources for Witnessing to Cults & Religious Movements
As with witnessing in any specific context, witnessing to someone in a cult or to someone who subscribes to a particular religious movement first requires developing a real, authentic relationship with that person. In developing that relationship, the witness gains an understanding of that person’s attitudes and worldviews, which inform how the witness should go about sharing the Gospel.
