What shall we do?
How to cope with the cults? There are so many of them... all different. Who has time to study all their weird doctrines in order to refute them? Here is a better way. Each cult is guilty of one or more certain characteristic doctrinal errors. Once you know what these typical errors are, you can know what's basically wrong with a cult, whatever weird or seemingly rational form it may take. Awareness of these characteristics can help you spot creeping errors among true Christians too... maybe save you from going astray. Know the marks of the cults. They miss the mark. Don't you.--Back cover.
