Christianity, Cults & Religions

Christianity, Cults and Religions

Christianity, Cults and Religions helps Christians know what they believe and why. It helps clarify the differences between various religions, cults, and religious movements and makes a great study for small groups, personal study, or Sunday school classes.

With so many religious groups in the world, it can be hard to know what they believe. This overview compares Christianity to six world religions and cults.

By comparing Christianity with groups such as Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses, people have a better grasp about what the Bible says about who Jesus is and the message of the Gospel. This six session study simply explains the history, background, and beliefs of the most common world religions and cultic groups: Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses and other groups.

Paul Carden, one of the most respected specialists in this field, has spent 30 years researching, writing and broadcasting on the topics of cults and new religions. He is the general editor of the best-selling cults comparison chart, Christianity, Cults & Religions. Carden presents an easy-to-understand comparison of the founder, date, location, history, beliefs, of each group. Carden also explains how to talk with people of other faiths in a way that will open them to the Gospel not turn them off. Participants will gain a solid Scriptural foundation for their own faith so that they can answer the questions of other groups - who is Jesus? What do we believe about God? What happens after death? How do the other religions view salvation?

In this Bible Study, he goes over the differences between:

  • Islam and Christianity
  • Jehovah's Witnesses and Christianity
  • Mormonism and Christianity


_"Christians need to know what they believe and why. They also need good advice on sharing the Gospel with people from other religions. Paul Carden's Christianity, Cults & Religions DVD does the best job I have seen for fulfilling these crucial needs in the church today."
