Kingdom of the Cults

An → Amazon ← Link




Martin examines a large number of new religious movements; included are major groups such as Christian ScienceThe Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day SaintsJehovah’s WitnessesArmstrongismTheosophy, the Bahá’í FaithUnitarian UniversalismScientology, and the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as minor groups including various New Age and groups based on Eastern religions. The beliefs of other world religions such as Islam and Buddhism are also discussed.

He covers each group’s history and teachings, and contrasts them with those of mainstream Christianity, from a decidedly critical, evangelical perspective.[1][2]

Martin defines “a cult” as “a group of people gathered about a specific person — or person’s misinterpretation of the Bible,” while admitting that in spite of “distorting Scripture” such groups’ teachings may contain “considerable truths” which have Biblical support but have become de-emphasized by mainstream Christianity, such as divine healing and prophecy.

Dr. Walter Martin starts a seven part series titled Kingdom of the Cults. A Christian, Dr. Martin was one of the leading Cult researchers of his time and his information is essential in bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ to cultists. In part one Dr. Martin lays a foundation for the rest of his series. The audio sounds slightly off at some points because it was ripped from an old cassette but it is still listenable.
