    •      
    • play video games,
    •      
    • popular music,
    •   
      
  • Cults use all the methods listed above to teach their doctrines,
  •   
  • Christians, who are commanded to lead people to Christ, are usually silent or else unconsciously repeating the cult doctrines without realizing that they are doing damage to souls of others.
  •   
           
    • Have you ever heard these:
    •      
                
      • "Most people are basically good."
      •         
      • "Every person has a seed of goodness in them."
      •         
      • "All people have a good part of their heart and an evil part of their heart."
      •         
      • "All people have a spark of God in them."
      •         
      • "All people have a little bit of God in them.     You just have to find that God in them."
      •         
      • You just have to find that spark of goodness in others.
      •      
           
    • All of these are lies.    
    •   
      
  • What does the Bible say?
  •   
           
    • The Bible, speaking of God, says, "My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. (Psalm 144:2)"
    •      
    • Jesus said, "There is none good but God."
    •      
    • Paul, speaking as a Christian, says, "I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out." Romans 7:18
    •      
    • John 1:9 speaks of "The light that lights every man the comes into the world."    
    •      
                
      • If someone shines a flashlight on you, is the light in you?     No.    
      •         
      • Can you ignore the light or make it have no effect on you?     Yes.    
      •         
      • That is why true Atheists protect themselves from Jesus.     They do not want that light shining on them.
      •      
           
    • "The LORD saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time."     Genesis 6:5     Without Jesus, this is the natural state of mankind.         This is what happens without Christ.
    •      
    • Salvation is to Righteousness, Holiness, and Redemption.     What does that mean?
    •      
    • What about Christ in us?     Colossians 1:27     That is a change that happens to us when we accept Christ.    
    •      
    • It starts like this.    
    •      
                
      • The Father draws us.    
      •         
      • He shines His light on us.    
      •         
      • At first, most people reject the light.    
      •         
      • Over time, through His love, the Father draws those who will be drawn.    
      •         
      • He keeps drawing them until the day when they accept Christ as the One who will rule over their lives and deliver them from the emptiness and pain of sin.    
      •         
      • Then, their most inner being, their spirit, is joined to the Spirit of Christ.    
      •         
      • That is the new birth.    
      •         
      • However, the fleshly nature still has no good in it.    
      •         
      • The battle between the flesh and the spirit begins.    
      •         
      • Before this point, the person was totally Satan's own, living in self-righteousness.
      •      
        
      
  • Can you see the difference between a cult and the Christian teachings?
