WITNESSING TO THE CULTS
1 Pet 3:15 “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect”
1. DON’T ARGUE OR GET ANGRY, know they will be closed, antagonistic and dogmatic
2. PRAY TOGETHER, out loud, and pray individually to rebuke their deception
3. SHOW LOVE, PATIENCE, don’t be prideful, gospel is GOOD news
4. BE PERSONAL, develop trust, get to know and respect them as a person
5. DEFINE TERMS, what is meant by grace, salvation, Christ, etc. – don’t assume!
6. START AT THE BEGINNING, they know enough Scripture to confuse most believers, so start in the beginning (Adam & Eve) and build plan of salvation from there
7. FOLLOW UP – keep praying and reaching out
8. STICK TO THE BIBLE, show why you believe the Bible is God’s Word, insist that the Bible
be the final authority on everything
